At first we were all pretty sure Peyton Manning was going to take his talents to South Beach and become a Miami
Heat Dolphin; but after Miami became no longer interested, the Titans, 49ers and Broncos all became the front runners in the bid to win Peyton over.
With the acquisition of Mario Manningham, 49er fans were a buzz on twitter this past weekend believeing Peyton would be a sure bet.
Of course not though.
I mean Peyton is comfy in the AFC, its where he’s been for the past 14 seasons – why change it up now? Plus the AFC West seems to be a winnable division – Denver backed into the postseason at 8-8.
Once John Elway started to show interest I had a feeling it was going to be an easy decision for Manning. Who doesn’t want to play for a hall of fame QB? Elway was tweeting nothing but praise of how amazing Peyton was looking on the field (man crush?) and that he was throwing great. Plus the fact that Elway can’t stand Tim Tebow (poor Timmy) Elway is all but ready to roll out the red carpet for this man and pay the big bucks.
Over all I think Denver will be a good fit for Manning. Their offensive line is pretty good, especially with having Ryan Clady and Orlando Franklin. This of course is important considering his injury.
I guess we shall see once the season starts!
