08:06 AM ET 12.17 | Peyton Manning's elite club has a new member. To comprehend the exclusive nature of [Manning's] route-tree routine prior to a game, consider the number of receivers who have been allowed into his "circle of trust" with any regularity the past 13 seasons. Marvin Harrison. And Reggie Wayne. That's it. "There's only two guys," coach Jim Caldwell noted Thursday afternoon. "Early on when I first arrived (in 2002), it was Marv and it was Reggie." But lately, there has been a third. Pierre Garcon began sharing repetitions with Wayne several weeks ago. "(Manning) told me to come out there and join them," Garcon said. "Just running routes versus 'air' and getting loose. It's cool."

Is there a secret handshake? Special buttons? Free passes to the $250,000 sweet 16 birthday parties?
