07:57 AM ET 10.29 | Peyton Manning keeps losing his offensive options. If No. 18 can lead his team past Houston in a Monday night monster game at The Luke, if he can overcome the injuries to [Dallas] Clark, receiver Austin Collie, running backs Joseph Addai and Donald Brown, and receiver Anthony Gonzalez's tenuous return from injury, and lead this group to another 12-win season, he should not only get his fifth MVP, they should rename the trophy after him. "You still have the same expectations, but you may have to make some adjustments," Manning said Thursday. "To sit here and say there's not an adjustment without Dallas Clark, we can't say that. He's too great of a player not to have an effect."

The dude's always a strong candidate. As a Titans fan, I hate that.

Well someone got their wish asking about a Colts thread yesterday. But is a Browns thread far behind?

Isn't it a little early to be talking MVP?

These were the same people who were planning on seeing the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. BTW, I heard that if the Cowboys made the SB, it would be the first time... Oh, forget it.

A slap to the face of the Aztecs (and the Incas).

Since you brought it up...there was a party at the Jerry Palace yesterday marking 100 days till the Cowboys DON'T play in the super bowl.
