"If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler." Jack Lambert, 1990 HoF Introduction.
I agree with Clem. This is ridiculous. And the $ PM wants is laughable. I'm losing tons of respect for him. Dude can't even throw and he wants to hogtie how many teams out there because of his legacy? Lunacy ....
Hey, so am I.Peyton Manning from 5 years ago maybe, but this dude is one Ray Lewis sack away from paralysis.
1) You forget about the Mayan calendar.At best, the team who signs PM is looking for a one year miracle, someone to save a coach or GM's job, not a guy to add to the formidable mix in place for the future.
2) You are talking like a Patriot fan. Remember that Lions fans make secret death pacts with their friends to take the urn with their ashes to the first Lions Superbowl, if any are still living and the Sun hasn't nova'd or the universe die from heat death.
uh huh.I agree with Clem. This is ridiculous. And the $ PM wants is laughable.
Because you have to save that cap space for Alex?
PM goes to Denver, because that is the only way Elway can ship Tebow out of town and still walk the streets without looking for little red dots.
Peyton Manning's neck can withstand a hit. The Doctor said he would let his own son play. The problem was nerve regeneration.

As for the free agent drama, yeah, it's not looking good. I always had a sneaky suspicion that money was a bigger deal than people initially believed. However, just like I don't blame Mario Williams, I also don't blame Manning. It's a profession and it's his last payday. They don't play the game for free, nor should they.

He's going to Tennessee. It's a done deal, and this was the clincher:
Seriously, if someone in Indy, say Cracker Barrel, had offered him pancakes don't you think he would have stayed? Darn cheap Hoosiers
No one is holding a gun to these people's heads forcing them to play the waiting game with Manning (well, I think the people of Tennessee may actually be holding a gun to Bud Adams's head, but that's the exception). The fact that they are all googly-eyed over a 36-year-old man whose recovery status is iffy and who has at most a few years left if he is completely healthy is a testament to the general insanity of some owners and to the abilities and reputation of Peyton Manning.
