Kinda like how a boxer might feel if they won on a disqualification. May not be the way he wants to end his career if feeling he can still play, and benefit a team.
    I kinda see your point. If I had the worst season of my career I'd probably wanna be better the next season . I don't think he can get worse tbh

    The Broncos won't allow him to take that physical. No need to go through potential hassles of him claiming that his neck is fine (this physical is only on his neck) and then it potentially dragging out. Just let him know that if he doesn't have a decision before the physical ate, he will be released.

    I was pretty sure that the language of the contract was so that if he passes the physical then his salary becomes guaranteed.

    I know, but it rarely ends well. I didn't know that there was another record than the wins one though. I can see the wins happening, I'm not sure about the one you mentioned.

    Actually, I think it's going to be more sad than fun. I really hope he doesn't do this to himself. Go out as a 2x SB champ, not as some shell of himself. Oh well, his choice though.
    I forgot my sarcasm smiley! I totally agree with you. I really see no rational reason not to go out on top!

    The problem is he hasn't played football in a month and his body is starting to feel good again. So in his mind, with how his body feels now he believes he can play another year or two. It's a trick that hits a lot of players at this stage in their careers.

    The interesting thing is he's allegedly knocked down two teams that would seemingly be ideal for him should he want to play another year in L.A. and Houston. So I'm not entirely sure what he thinks the market is right now.

    I don't care what Manning does, retire or not it makes no difference to me. As long as he's not in Denver I don't really care.
    I will wish him well but, will be relieved to see him go.

    Was it a fun ride? Yes but, the cart has squeaky wheels and can barely make it up the hill anymore.
    The cart needed a whole team of mechanics to push it over the top.

    The idea anyone on this forum is stating otherwise is one of the biggest reasons I will be glad to see Manning gone.

    It can be difficult to like someone who has fans who are so unwilling to accept the facts about his decline. And it is tough to like a man who has fans that make almost every thread about him.That may not be fair to Manning but, it's an unfortunate reality.

    Manning is like the last days of Disco, you have those refusing to admit it's so over but, the majority of us are ready to make a bonfire of the albums.. Lol

    Actually I think if Manning does try to play for another team there is a big plus side to that... Manning worshippers will follow him to the new team. If he retires some of them may actually stick around for awhile because they will have nowhere to go. Lol

    In all seriousness though, if those fans who started to love Denver because of Manning and will stick around because they actually fell in love with the Broncos.. Terrific!! Welcome aboard. I'm only referring to those who have no real interest in Denver but, Manning.. Just wanted to be clear on that.

    Who in their right mind would sign him for a season ? He's done. Even with QB needy teams like LA, Cleveland and SF I just don't see what he brings at this point in his career.
    I can't see it either. Besides, if he gets cut and goes and plays for another team for (say) $10 mil., everyone will have their what ifs, he has to be prepared for that. Not that he cares about it, but questions will be asked during the season. Now, he has no NFL obligations and can sit back and take his time with his decision.

    I don't blame Peyton for wanting to come back. I don't think this is just to collect more stats. He really loves the game and wants to play more. That's his choice until he finds no takers. He's not ready to leave. He'll just have to find another team. Elway is going to cut Peyton no later than March 8.

It was blatantly obvious that he doesn't have enough in the tank for another 16 game season + Playoffs, the only reason he was even partially competent in the playoffs (And that's being incredibly generous to him) was because he sat out 7 games.

    He should be walking away a champ and call it a career. If he comes back, it won't be on this team and it won't be for a Superbowl contender so the only reason to come back is to try and further pad those stats.
    I agree. He has earned the right to go out the way he wants it but he needs to know how far his right can go.

    Walk away Peyton, walk away. This is as high as it is going to get for you, the mountain top even though it may be a rocky top. It is only one way from here, down.
