Arizona and Denver per ESPN, and said to be leaning toward Denver.

Schefter and Mortensen say that the situation is still fluid, but their sources believe he'll wind up in one of those two cities.

Speculation is that if it's Denver, Tebow will be traded or cut.

Manning to Denver. Tebow traded to Jacksonville for their 2nd. Tebow then takes a mission trip every Sunday in his backyard once they move to LA.

Shefter didn't say it is going to be down to those two teams, all he said was that those 2 teams are the fav right now because they have met with him already

Pretty sure John Fox coaching Peyton Manning is a sign of the Apocalypse. I compared it in the other thread to a kid with a learner's permit being handed the keys to a Ferrari.

It makes some sense from Fox's standpoint though. He wouldn't have to put a single bit of effort toward quarterback development. Nor would he have to think very much about the offense because he'd have Peyton to handle all that.

Back when Buddy Ryan had Randall Cunningham, his game plans were essentially to just have Cunningham make one or two big plays a game and his defense would take care of the rest. Guess Fox wants a similar arrangement.

I acknowledged they said it's still in flux.

I have a hard time seeing how Miami can't be a bigger contender. Pretty much everyone has had Manning as a Dolphin up to now.

Only clue I've seen on that is some speculation (Florio I think) that Manning was uncomfortable with the way Stephen Ross wasnted to use him, especially for media stuff.

Things we've previously heard speculated:

- Manning won't play in a cold weather city because of the age and wear on his body.

- Manning won't sign with an NFC team because he only wants to face Eli in the Super Bowl.

- Manning will only sign with a team that has other clients of his agency (CAA) in key positions.

And now this, which would contradict other ideas which everyone thought were known.

The level of speculation on this story has reached near Biblical proportions.

ESPN is obviously creating a story line here. He's met with 2 cities so far. I'm sure he's going another city next. Isn't even finished with the Cards yet. smh

Only listening [B]after[/B] he's finished visiting teams.

Maybe, but it's been said before that he plans to make this process quick. I have no trouble believing that. I could see him wanting to get this process out of the way so he could focus.

Miami makes way more sense to me than Denver (so does Arizona honestly).

And yeah, it wouldn't be the first time Schefter and Mort had speculation turn out to be wrong :lol:
