    Of course Peyton Manning would want to play with a team loaded with great talent on both sides of the ball. What are his other options right now? All I'm hearing are the Cardinals and Seahawks that want him the most. Hmm, Texans, Cardinals or Seahawks? Peyton would pick the Texans over most teams but I just can't imagine it happening unless Schaub has some type of serious health setback with his foot. I've got it on ABC 13 and awaiting the sports segment.

    Peyton has an interest in possibily coming to Houston. Didn't his father once briefly play for the Houston Oilers? Yep, just heard Bob Allen say it. It's coming up next on ABC 13. So this isn't a troll thread. Wow, legitimate news to say the last.

    I called my grandfather on the phone for the past 10 minutes after I watched the segment. It's huge news to say the least. Basically Bob Allen talked to a close friend with the Manning family that said Peyton has a strong interest in playing with the Texans. He's a great competitor and wants to match Eli Manning with two Super Bowl wins. Peyton feels the Texans have all the parts to win the Super Bowl and he would have more incentive to stay in the AFC South so he can beat up on the Colts twice a year. Something to follow over the next few weeks. It's expected that the Colts will release him some time during next month.

    Bob pretty much said he heard from someone close to Peyton that he would definitely consider coming to Houston. Says he wants another ring (especially now that Eli has 2) and that he wouldn't mind playing against Irsay twice a year. A lot of moving parts obviously with his health, cap situation, Schaub, etc. I still don't think there is a snowballs chance fwiw.

    Don't want him.
    Don't need him.

    Love it, though. The worm has turned. We are a desired spot for veterans interested in success.

    A close friend said that he has some interest in Houston but I don't think it will happen.

    It can definitely happen. But man, I'd hate to just sell out Schaub so fast. Although a healthy Peyton Manning is a top three quarterback in the game. Schaub on his best days barely breaks the bottom half of the top ten. The tough part is both Manning and Schaub are still hurt right now. Neither is ready to take a snap in a live game as I type this.

    This is going to be a wait and see approach either way you look at it. I wouldn't rule it out at all but I agree with the previous posters that it's likely a long shot. What if Schaub has a freak accident taking a shower and re-injures that foot? Then it becomes a better chance because of Peyton's interest in playing for Houston.

    Well as cool as having Peyton would be, you need to wonder if he will be the same manning. Not in the sense of his play, but more in the sense of will he try and control the game? We all know Gary is the guy making the calls. Will Manning be willing to do that, or hand it off. He has played 10+ years with almost no run game to speak of, he is used to passing the ball. Will he listen to Kubiak? Or will he do what he wants which will lead to a very ugly scene for our organization....

    Here is a good thing that comes out of Manning though.

    We all know that TJ is the future starter for the texans. With manning there he can teach Yates, and yates may benefit from it.

    Who knows though.
