    I think he either ends up in Washington, or KC.

    Crazy! I know it helps us for the division, but I sure do like Peyton and this is gonna be so weird. Like seeing Jerry Rice in that Raiders uniform. It just didn't make sense!

    Even though we've known for a while this was coming it's still crazy as hell to actually see it...

    Neither of those teams are even close to being ready to go to a super bowl.

    The New York Jets makes the most sense. The NFL would cream themselves having the Manning bros play in the same city and Manning taking on Brady twice a year.

    Wouldn't it be a trip if he ended up a Tit?

    I say he goes to the SF 49ers. Best spot for him IMO.

    It makes sense, but I think he stays in the AFC so he doesn't have to play a potential NFC championship game against Eli.

    If anything, he'd want to come here to royally stick it to the Colts.

    So the guy that made the Colts relevent again will no longer be a pain in the Texans rears. Sounds good to me.

    Would love to see him move to the NFC and be done with him.

    Pretty much opens up the division for us. Titans are the main threat now I suppose but nothing that scares me.

    Luck could be good, could be horrible, but I'm willing to bet he'll never be what Manning was. Peyton was a all-time great and for many a top 5 QB of ALL-TIME. Big shoes for anyone to fill...

    I hope we play the Colts on the first game of the season though, would be fun to welcome the rook to the NFL :evil:
