Has Manning already narrowed his choices?

Peyton Manning insists he's made no decision on his possible NFL destination. Sure, Peyton. Sure.

No one in the league believes that. They think Manning has a short list but doesn't want to publicly admit it so he can maximize the inevitable bidding war.

One team official that contacted Manning's agent, Tom Condon, says he got the definite impression that Manning indeed has already decided where he wants to go, or, at least, the handful of teams truly in the mix. The official, who did not want to be identified, believes that Miami, Washington and Denver are the front-runners. One report states Manning has already informed the Redskins he doesn't want to play for them.

But the official conceded the front-runner will be the team that, in the end, offers the most guaranteed money.

The official believes that contrary to some reports, Manning is indeed open to playing in the NFC, even in the NFC East where his brother Eli, is obviously king of the division.

It's still early in the process but one thing is clear: the Manning derby is fully under way and, despite his public protestations, Manning likely already has a good idea of where he wants to go.

Neither KC nor Denver are even close to SB contenders even with Manning


Does this quote ring a bell for you Chargers fan?  "Worst day ever."

The Patriots needed a deap threat and still traded Moss.  The Vickings needed a play making wide receiver and released Moss.  The Titans needed a play making wide receiver and kept Moss on the bench.  Now a year removed from the sport and he is going to be a difference maker. Moss is done.  All he ever had was freak athletism and now that that is gone he sucks.  He can't run a route and now can't seperate or jump over DBs.  To top it all off he has been a cancer in the locker room for most of his NFL career.  This is why the Patriots choose Branch over Moss.

Is the admin a Steelers fan?  All I said was that "Didn't Denver end the Steelers season?"

As I recall the last win Denver did have was against the Steelers... I think that Manning to bring a ton to Denver, I don't have high hopes that he'll actually land here though...

Denver has WAY more holes to fill in their team than KC

Inaccurate.  KC needs 4 new OL.  2 new LB's.  An entire new DL.

KC can at least say once Haley was gone the meltdowns stopped


You can it all you want.  Doesn't make it true.  You simply caught some teams at the end of the season that had already made the playoffs.

Peyton is not going to KC.
