    Tennessee has a go-to WR (Britt) and Chris Johnson. Plus, Manning is adored in Tennessee.

    Tennessee's O-line is rated much higher, both in the running game and in pass protection.
    Tennessee's defense game up significantly fewer points, and yardage was basically a toss-up between the two.

    Assuming Manning wants to get back to the Super Bowl, seems like the Titans are a lot closer. Not sure what Peyton sees in Denver, unless it's just someone to force the bidding as high as possible. There must be something I'm missing.
    I think it's the John Elway mystique, combined with Peyton's liking of John Fox, that is keeping Denver in the picture.

    But I'm sure Peyton likes the thought of facing the Colts twice a year with the Titans.

      Apparently the 49ers with their $20 million under the cap have jumped in. And the entire league has just shat a brick.

        The dark horse 49ers have emerged!

        Even before he worked out for the Denver Broncos on Friday, Peyton Manning threw passes for the San Francisco 49ers and underwent a physical exam earlier this week, according to league sources.
        Damn, Imran! Beat me by a minute!

          Btw, how scared are you of that happening?

            Pssh. My team is the reigning SB champs. I wasn't expecting a repeat this coming season.

            Peyton Manning to Randy Moss, though...

                It appears that Denver can only offer $60MM/5years with their cap issues. That's probably a problem.

                Adam Shefter reports that the Cardinals have been advised to proceed as if they will not get Manning.

                SF would be pretty scary with a real QB.

                  Sucks for Alex Smith. Like Tebow, he earned his place (hell, to be honest, Hasselbeck balled out and earned starting consideration for next year), but that won't matter now.

                    Most even semi-contenders have QBs that earned their place.

                    But San Fran likely saw losing in overtime in the NFC Championship Game and their starting QB went 12/26 for 196 yards and imagined what if Peyton Manning was under center instead.

                    • I think with Peyton under center for the 49ers that I might have to go to Vegas and put a little down on their Super Bowl chances.

                        You have no idea. There has been little else discussed anywhere in the state since this became a real possibility. I would love to see Peyton back in Tennessee myself, but it is like the second coming going on around here.

                          Coach Ken Whisenhunt says Peyton Manning "no longer an option" for Cardinals. Team to pay QB Kolb $7 million bonus.

                            • $90MM/5 yrs is the same deal he had in Indy. That's said to be the baseline buy-in to be in the conversation.
                              Manning is said to be willing to offer the teams protection in case his neck issues resurface.

                              • One thing in common among the finalists, all 3 have young QB's that could benefit greatly from Manning being there. It's not just Tebow.
                                Alex Smith is still young. Jake Locker could surely use him being around. Matt Hasselbeck is OK, but he's no Peyton Manning.
