Whawha? Manning is nothing like Favre, c'mon man. Manning has handled himself like a consummate professional throughout the entire process of being seriously injured, cut and then selecting his next team. I think the only "quality" the two share is competitiveness but even therein I see a difference i.e. Favre extending his career out of spite while Manning IMO wants to compete because he loves the game.

I don't know man, I mean maybe I was a little to quick to play the Favre card but we're hearing it being brought up more and more as this "process" continues to go along.

I think the main problem people have is not that he's taking his time, but he's visiting teams with semi-established QB's and at this point he's gone for visits with so many teams that he's leaving a decent portion of the league with relationships to repair with their incumbents.

Fair point. But every FO has to consider what's best for the franchise over, say, what's best for last year's QB. In the case of San Fran and Smith, well he's a FA just like Peyton, and everybody realizes that team becomes an instant SB contender with Peyton under center.

...it's a tough business to be sure but what isn't these days!

lol it's been a week... and we're already comparing Manning to Favre?

He's in a completely foreign situation, I can't blame him for wanting to analyze everything for what it's worth. He wants to make the most of what's left for his career... If that takes a couple of weeks to decide on I think he's earned that right.

sounds like the mods over there verified it to some degree. Pretty amazing stuff.

I like how right away the mods threaten to ban him if he doesn't post pics. The OP has been a member there since 2002 and they treat him like a chump. Classy.

You liked that too?...lol Yeah, one mod in particular is a huge douche bag over there, and I've seen them treat some long time members like garbage. I kid you not when I say you guys (WP mods) are head and shoulders above that crew. /salute
