Peyton Manning News Getting Ridiculous


Peyton Manning has been the subject of so much speculation since the end of the Denver Broncos season, that if you try to follow it too closely your head will spin tighter than a Manning spiral. Quite honestly, it feels a lot like the media world has latched onto the stories revolving around Manning in an effort to generate clicks. I bet you find someone accusing me of that at the end of this article in the comments. I thank you for reading and commenting.

However, there is a side to all of this speculation that has gotten out of hand. Peyton Manning finished the 2014 season injured, and deflated. The question was asked, Does Manning even want to come back? Injuries are hard on a player’s psyche, and age makes a player think about life without football. It was a legitimate question considering all of the changes the organization went through.

And of course, with all of the coaching changes, there were questions about Manning fitting in with new head coach Gary Kubiak’s offense. Forgive me if I call these questions ridiculous. Any coach that can’t win with Peyton Manning as his quarterback is in the wrong business. Manning, Kubiak, and new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison will put together a scheme that will probably be one of the top offenses in the league. Great offensive minds find a way to work together. This should not be an issue.

  • The unbelievable smoke that is now being blown around the blogs? The Denver Broncos might not want Manning back. Is this really a thing? Are people really speculating that John Elway is ready to give up on the investment he made? I do not currently take dinner with Elway and the Broncos top brass, but to think they would be considering moving away from Manning now is so far-fetched that it can not be more than a simple tactic to try to get people to click on the stink that is being written.

    Could we all just take a break. Manning is owed a lot of money, and he might not pass a physical, and the Broncos might not think he fits the new system, and Kubiak might want to start over, and yada, yada, yada. The Broncos have a lot of moves to make, and there are a number of moves involving free agents that can be discussed. Shall we stop trying to convince everyone there is a controversy in Denver involving the Broncos and Manning. There is not. If Manning wants to come back, the Broncos will welcome him back with open arms. They already said that. They should not have to convince us any further.
