07:57 AM ET 03.10 | Rex Ryan has failed on his Super Bowl guarantees, and now Peyton Manning has hit him with the biggest blow to his ego and program: The three-ring circus Jets, with their dysfunctional locker room, are not the No. 1 destination for the best players in the league. The Jets have an image problem. They have shifted from a fun-loving Animal House gang with a laugh-track coach to a circus that not only isn't the greatest show on Earth, it's not even the greatest show in New York.

Other than the youtube video, has anyone even seen Peyton work out? Where is he in his rehab?

Houston would be the perfect fit for Manning but they already have a good QB.

He could be about to join the mile high club.

I'm astounded by the Colts' moves yesterday. I can't believe Dallas Clark is gone. This team's going to be totally different next year.

With this much press, I think Peyton should take the next couple of years off and go around and reject a whole bunch of stuff: politicians, high fructose corn syrup, earrings on dudes, partial lobotomies (you're either all-in or not, right)...it's got endless possibility- just sayin'

I doubt very much that Manning will play at Denver.

It's a shame Stu.... I will still pull for Indy but wherever Peyton goes is my second team...And they are not done yet...They are entertaining offers for Freeney...

Peyton will most likely play another two years and will want to play for some team that has enough talent to be contenders. Personally I think he should just retire or he'll tarnish his career like Montana & Favre did.

It is a real shame. I agree with what you're saying, but I'll go a step further: I'll cheer on the Colts, but Manning's team will be my favorite team. Besides, this new Colts team is going to stink for the next several years.

Whoa! I vehemently disagree with putting Montana into the conversation with Favre. Favre was a flip-flopper who held the Packers at ransom by never fully letting them know what his intentions were the last few years of his career. He forced them to pull the trigger. Montana always made his intentions to keep playing known. It sucked that he had to wear #19 in KC, but it was great to see him score a win against his former team during his last year in the pros.

If you are a Colts fan you should cheer for your team. Just because the Colts are rebuilding doesn't mean you should abandon them. You sound like a fair weather fan.

Both Montana and Favre wanted to stay with their teams but management went in another direction. Steve Young & Aaron Rodgers were young QB's with great upside.
