Denver has a pretty good O line, probably the best of all the teams contending for him.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

I just don't see Denver as a threat for SB contention even with Manning. Maybe Peyton's looking at the home field advantage with the altitude and is all like "that's 6 or 7 wins right there, just have to hold serve on the road." Denver has to play New England and Houston though next year, and even if they go 4-2 or 5-1 in the division with Manning, they're still just a 8 or 9 win team. And with age so rapidly becoming a factor for him, it gets tough after that.

At least with Arizona, you could see Manning putting up HoF level numbers into his late thirties, and then who knows? Maybe you get the NFC West division title next year, maybe you get a wild card in another year and have two shots at winning another SB.

I just figured he'd have more fun playing for a team that has a strong defense and would let him build the offense in his image. Like KC or Seattle.

Manning to Denver just makes little sense to me

I think he ends up in Arizona now. Weak division, great WR in Fitz, flexible coaching staff that will let him run the show. And of course the great weather and retractable roof there.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Arizona makes the most sense, just not sure that financially Arizona can make it work. Whereas Denver can, and they can bring in his guys

I wonder if Peyton has any issue with knowing that he will bump Tebow out of town?

Denver seems desperate to do that anyway, regardless if PM goes there or not.

Re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Well if he went to Miami he wouldn't bump anyone out of town really. Otherwise it's Tebow in Denver or Kolb in Arizona.

Speaking of Miami, as I had mentioned a few months back it really looks like Flynn to Seattle. And if that's the case, and no Manning there then what do the Dolphins do?....Jason Campbell?

Maybe Miami gets desperate and trades up for Tannehill?

Or do they go pick up the scraps from Manning and go for Tebowmania, or Kolbmania?

I was watching NFLN last night and that's what they suggested, Tannehill probably won't last beyond Miami at 7. Amazing how we were talking about Tannehill as a 2nd round prospect when the season was over and now we're talking about him not even making it out of the top ten. And he hasn't even done anything besides break his foot lol.

Just wait til his pro day.

I wouldn't rule out Cleveland considering him at #4.

True. Vikings may be winners in all of this if Miami trades up to beat Cleveland. We could have QB's going 1-2-3 in the draft this year lol.

Yeah, that's why I was saying the Redskins were feeling they might have to move up because rumors were starting to circulate that Tannehill was going to be a top 5 pick

I wonder if this would help the Dolphins. I am sure they would rather pick up Tannehill, but that would be one less team in the Flynn sweepstakes.

The guys from Football Today were saying that no one wants to touch the Dolphins right now. I think Flynn may be their only option with Philbin.
