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

Manning narrows options

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, The Golden Calf of Bristol will be traded or cut.

Manning to Denver. The Golden Calf of Bristol traded to Jacksonville for their 2nd. The Golden Calf of Bristol 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 after 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:

Since he knows Miami he might visit them last. He's probably/is going to meet with the Chiefs, Dolphins and Seahawks next week. So probably by Friday we'll know where he's going.

Doubt its Denver though.

Denver doesn't make a lot of sense to me either. But then, who knows what Manning is really thinking?

Guess we'll find out if the "sources" are reliable or not (something which is pretty common these days).
