Peyton Manning was in Tennessee Thursday, and naturally, everyone thinks the Titans are suddenly the favorites to land the free agent QB. (Peyton wants to go back into the division he knows best! Probably also wants to stick it to Irsay.)
Broncos brass is currently en route to Durham, North Carolina to watch Peyton Manning toss the pigskin around at Duke, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
This move reeks of desperation. Wherever Peyton visits, there’s buzz he’ll sign there. So naturally, spending time in Tennessee – he went to college in Knoxville, ZOMG! – probably got Denver all nervous (not another season of Tebow! Noooooo!) so they decided to get to NC immediately in one last full court press attempt.
This has to be tough on Denver’s starting QB, Tim Tebow. The courtship of Manning is understandable, but flying across the country for one last shot? What’s next, a weepy John Elway press conference televised on ESPN begging Manning to come to Denver?
What a slap in the face to the most popular player on the team. He just won Denver a playoff game in historic fashion!
I don’t care who gets Peyton. I just don’t want it to be Denver. I want them stuck with the guy they don’t want.
