I think you DO have a legitimate reason. The guy went from reportedly going to decide before free agency, to now heading into a second week of not making a decision. And sorry, but guess what? None of the teams he is flirting with is going to make the SuperBowl, so what's the freaking difference at this point? Decide, choose, pick, move on with your life, so the rest of the football world can too. -EK

I agree. After that I would choose 10-I-see. He may not win int all there but it gives him a great place to retire to hero status.

Mike Klis of Denver Post Saturday morning reporting the Broncos have "diminished expectations" they will sign Peyton

Either his workout for them sucked or they ain't paying a 36 year old $90+ mill.

But this makes me happy because it means Tebow is staying in Denver and NO chance they cut him or trade him and our crazy owner Stephen Ross does something stupid!

His workout for them was a week ago.

The last week has consisted entirely of reporters throwing crap against the wall.

There were reports that one of the advantages Tennessee had was that they could provide a position within the organization after Manning stopped playing.

I gotta ask... how does the league handle this? Seems like an obvious way to skirt salary restrictions.

They can't.  There is no salary restrictions on coaches and front office personnel.  The Titans would have to void the contract he signed as a player and re-do it for him as a front office employee.

Hasn't that been true for the last 13 or so years as well? I think you seriously underestimate the competitive desire in these guys. Marino had surgery on his knees just about every year so that he could continue to play. Manning strikes me as that type of guy too. I don't think he's even thinking about retiring in a few years right now, I think he's thinking about being one of the few guys to lift the Lombardi Trophy for 2 different teams and perhaps how long that might take.

The question is what would I do if I was in Manning's position, not what I think Manning would do.  If I was in Manning's postion I would take the money and run. 

As for the risk for the last 13 years.  Its different.  He is much more prone to get permantly injured now than was the case 13 years ago.  Plus 13 years ago he didn't have millions of dollars.  So not playing football means being an ordinary Joe.  Now retiring means that he gets into the HOF sooner and he ha more than enough money to enjoy the rest of his life.

No, he's not. Injured maybe, permanently injured, no.

Plus 13 years ago he didn't have millions of dollars.
He was the number 1 pick. His rookie contract was for 48 million over 6 years, with an 11 million signing bonus. He's always had millions of dollars.

So not playing football means being an ordinary Joe.  Now retiring means that he gets into the HOF sooner and he ha more than enough money to enjoy the rest of his life.
Seriously? He's gonna be in the hall no matter what happens. Who cares whether it's in 5 years or 10, it's gonna happen. He only has a few years left to win another Lombardi trophy. Manning doesn't do what he does because he likes football. He does what he does because football is his life.

Reports are his much more likely to become paralyzed b/c of the injury.

He didn't always have the millions.  He needed to at min play his rookie year to be a millionare. 

But if after one year he said -- I am set for life, time to retire, that would not have been a horible plan from a finacial/injury risk standpoint.  (And what I would have done)
