08:06 AM ET 03.14 | We find Peyton Manning at a bit of a crossroads. He is a free agent because of a confluence of reasons -- bum neck, $28 million bonus payment at a time when his longtime team, the Indianapolis Colts, fell into the No. 1 draft pick as young quarterback Andrew Luck became eligible. But there are four NFL teams that don't care how he got in this spot. The Broncos, Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals are the finalists for his services, with a decision expected to be made soon, possibly [Wednesday]. ... Manning did not make his decision, as hoped, by the open of the league's free-agent market at 2 p.m. MDT on Tuesday. One source said the Broncos are in his final two, along with Tennessee.

I think it's the best match. Don't worry, Peyton. The Tebow fans will be saying "Tim who?" before pre-season.

I thought that I'd like the Denver move but now I think the Titans may be a better fit. I have to wonder how the Colts/Indy fans will feel about him as a division opponent.

Still would have liked to see him paired with Fitzgerald.

I bet Tim Tebow is praying hard to his Invisible Sky Friend!

That's what I thought would happen and they play indoors which he is used to.

I wish he would do it Bachelor style so we can see Stephen Ross' depressed look

I can't imagine Tennessee, 'cuz, well, just because, y'know?

March 14, 2012  08:31 AM ET

Isn't he still throwing noodle passes that have no zip?

Three threads on Manning this morning. After he makes his choice, there will be three threads each day on why he didn't go to other teams.

Lets end the Manning threads until he picks a team.

Hard to say... Denver doesn't have many good receivers now, and all of the good FA's are gone.
