fox sports ^

Posted on 03/14/2012 6:45:39 PM PDT by Perdogg

Peyton Manning appears to have entered the home stretch of his search for a new landing spot.

The four-time MVP quarterback will meet with Titans owner Bud Adams, coach Mike Munchak and several other club officials Wednesday at an undisclosed location amid reports he has narrowed his choices to the Broncos and Tennessee.

There are rumors of the Broncos trading Tebow if they get Peyton.

Tebow most likely winds up in Jacksonville if Manning becomes a Bronco.

I don’t even have the words to express my disgust with Irsay.

To whomever gets Peyton, take good care of him and love him as much as we did (and still do).

He need to go back home. The Broncos have a proven leader.

As a Broncos fan, I’m really hoping it’s the Texans.

I think it will be Tennessee. Peyton is still a legend there, and going to Denver will be too controversial, plus, I think Peyton will have more to work with there, and have a better chance to succeed.

Peyton goes to the Titans, spends around five years there. Peyton retires. Dooley moves from Tennessee as a winner or loser in five years and Peyton steps in as Head coach for the Volunteers. Deja vu Johnny Majors again.

I think Tebow will fill up any stadium he plays in but he would be back among his most loyal fans in Florida. It would be poetic justice to see him take the Jaguars to the playoffs.

I was hoping the Patriots would get him so he can sit on the bench behind Brady, where he belongs... OK, I’m kidding. I seriously was hoping he’d go to an NFC team.

There is NO way he goes to Denver. He’s always played in a dome at home...and Denver..in Nov, Dec, Jan..cold, snow, and mile high..not the best place for an older QB..It hurts a lot more when you get hit in the freezing cold..

Hmmm, maybe the only way Elway can get out of his Tebow “problem” is to bring in someone of Manning’s stature. And I say problem only in respect to the question of whether or not to build a team around Tebow for the long haul, no value judgment intended. And it would be a VERY interesting gambit for the Jags.

Bud Adams said “whatever it takes” and promised him a job for life in the front office. The sticking point is getting the Titan defense playoff ready.

My Neurosurgeon friends uniformly say
It would be psychotic for him to return to football

Imagine the damage to the all involved
when he is made quadriplegic by a blindside tackle

He should hang up his pads and helmet

Tennessee has one extra advantage in that Manning is already familiar with 3 opponents quite well.

You have to wonder about the Tebow thing...

But Indy is nuts to cut him loose. Unless you see that when Peyton isn’t on the field your offense and defense suck green eggs...

What about Jake Locker (TEN) and Tim Tebow (DEN) ?

Locker is a talent, and Tebow has big-game magic that no coach can develop. You either have it or you don’t.

I think Peyton Manning would upgrade both teams, but one hit on already surgically repaired neck could set them back decades. It’s not a reasonable risk as neither team is going anywhere soon.

Tebow, with Maurice Jones-Drew, that’s going to be pretty tough to defend against.

I don’t think so. The new HC, Joe Philbin, has his sights set on Matt Flynn, Aaron Rogers’s back up in Green Bay.

The Fish sent WR Brandon Marshall and his arrest warrants to the Bears for two third round picks and a pack of gum. His act grew stale here in Miami.

Right. He shredded the Pittsburgh Steelers defense for over 300 yards and beat them. That’s the team that was supposed to go to the Super Bowl based on their defense.

I don’t know what you’re talking about. Reread my post. He beat the defense that was supposed to carry the Steelers to the Super Bowl.

LOL. do not think his health is good. He got his money and we were out of a Super Bowl #2. We couldn't win a game for weeks. Kudos to the Manning children's hospital fund. I think who ever will get him will have a neck to treat.

Peyton left 30 minutes ago from Baptist Sports Park in Nashville. The visit lasted 7 hours. 14:30-21:30.

I predict that Tebow will not get traded if Manning picks the Broncos. I have a theory thats not a popular one as to why that would be so.

I’m a long-time Colts fan and people who really have Manning’s best interest at heart would encourage him to retire. Playing after that neck injury is one of the dumbest player moves I’ve seen. Every defensive player in the league will go hard for his neck, bounty or not. I hope he survives the next few years and can go on with the rest of his life. Irsay made the right call for the best interests of both the team and Manning.

The JAGS signed Chad Henne today to go along with last years first round pick Gabbert. Also the JAGS GM said no way in hell would he want Tebow and the owner backed him up on it.
