Bob Allen usually doesn't make stuff up like this, and I believe if we wanted Peyton, we could've had him.
I hear what you're saying, but I don't think we ever had a chance. Peyton was "interested" in MANY teams. Bob Allen is a Houston only guy, therefore if there was a story on Peyton I wonder what he would talk about...

This article was created with odds a month AFTER that Bob Allen story, there are 10 teams on here with a shot at Peyton, notice how the winning team isn't even on this list of 10. http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-tr...tons-next-home

This doesn't even factor in that we are a completely cap strapped team and Peyton is a $7+ million increase per year on the cap vs. Schaub. So 2 options would happen: 1. We never would have got Peyton (I think this is the most likely) or 2. We would have to shed a LOT to afford him and where are we then? I don't remember it being a given he wins Super Bowls or even competes in them in Indy.
