I think a lot of people kept mentioning SF and Houston as teams that made sense from the get go. Denver was probably not on the radar, but everyone knew that Elway did not want to make a long term commitment to Mile High Jesus.

I am sure it is hard to predict these things, either that or maybe there was a genuine interest by Manning until he or his people did research on these teams. Plus, I am sure teams that were not desperate for a QB stay put and see what the initial onslaught of bids for Manning was going to look like.

A lot of the early team speculation assumed Manning would have to accept a heavily incentivized contract. Clearly as the guaranteed amount got larger, teams with less cap room dropped out (i still don't understand how Arizona thought they would be in his ballpark, even if they axed Kolb)

Actually kind of makes sense:

Not sure where you get this from. We did have a interest in Manning, and this was stated sometime ago from regular ES insiders. The options were....

Manning + later round drafted QB to groom
RGIII + quality vet
Tannehill + quality vet


These were all serious options for the Redskins. There was no "throwing darts" to it at all. All those teams you mentioned had serious interest in Manning, now whether Manning had serious interest in them is a different story.

I think a lot of people actually thought SF made sense. And some thought maybe Tennessee, simply because of geography really.

I don't think anyone had Denver...except Colin Cowherd

Just another reason for CC to gloat. SS no offense but I really can't stand his analysis sometimes. He makes some sense, but he can really get off on tangents at times.

Manning to the Broncos really makes sense to me, but the weather may play a factor if he fails to win there.

Completely agree with your response, and when are we going to get that quality Vet backup NC?

Tebow is like heroine. Makes you feel so good when he's on your team (eeking out wins) but in reality he's really bad for your health (going deep in the playoffs) and when you try to quit you go through terrible withdrawals (fan backlash).

Which brings me to my next point......How Peyton Manning is like methadone.
