Titans, Broncos, and 9ers are the only teams in the mix.

ESPN's ticker said that Peyton told them he wouldn't be signing with them. So I'm guessing that is why.

Don't forget the Kansas City Chiefs (a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri)!

Tbh, if he wants a championship san fran would probably be the place to go. Denver and the Titans aren't superbowl good.

If he goes to the Titans or Broncos those teams instantly become Super Bowl contenders that can beat anybody.

Peyton must not have hit it off with Fitz. Peyton must be racist. We have no room for racism on the KC squad. Signing Boss and Hillis was racist, not to mention their pursuance of Eric Winston... this team has had enough of that $hit.

I'm not drinking the Peyton koolaid.

You make it sound like he went to the superbowl every year when he was with a team that he knew the offense and team mates were on the same page with.


Yes he makes the team better, but I'm not buying the contender stuff.

Our defense is good. Our WR are decent. Our line is good. Manning may not have went to every Super Bowl but he's been one of the best ever.

From 99 to 2010, dude averaged like 11 to 12 wins each year. If he's 100% healthy, he makes an average team a playoff contender.

"If" that's true, go 9ers.

Peyton's teams in Indy never had a defense to go with the offense except the year they caught fire during the playoff run. They were horrible throughout that year. Historically bad against the run. They will have a much more rounded team wherever he goes, but those teams will offer different challenges with the holes they would have. Wouldn't be any holes with the Chiefs if they got a RT and NT to go with him.:grr:

I take it that this is dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, pun, parody, litotes or some other form of sarcasm because the Broncos ummm no...

Defense is below average (stats below...how is that good) Wide receivers well below average although one must admit they are probably better than the stats would indicate given the qb last year. O-line I guess I would say average to slightly above.

Why would Peyton want to play on a team with a bad defense after doing it the last 14 years? Especially considering he would have to score 46 on New England to beat them if he were a bronco since denver gave up 45 and 41 to NE last season.

Defense 24.3 ppg allowed 24th in the league
357 ypg allowed 20th in the league

With an offense that can stay on the field, we would easily deflate those numbers.
