    I sure like hearing others speak well of our team. It sure is nice!

    Peyton Manning derby: Ranking 12 potential landing spots for QB’s services

    Here’s the Dirty Dozen:

    1. Houston Texans: I know there was a report a few weeks ago from the Houston Chronicle’s highly reliable John McClain that Manning to the Texans is “not going to happen.” But it should, and I believe the franchise’s powerbrokers (owner Bob McNair, general manager Rick Smith and head coach Gary Kubiak) are smart enough to give the idea strong consideration. The Texans have everything Manning could possibly want: A terrific defense; a premier running back (Arian Foster); an elite receiver (Andre Johnson) and other dangerous targets; an exceptional offensive line; a fabulous stadium with a roof; and a seemingly weak division that, oh yeah, happens to include the Colts. This team is a Super Bowl contender with Matt Schaub under center; if Manning is healthy and able to regain his throwing touch, I think the Texans are Super Bowl favorites. Schaub, while accomplished, has been injury-prone and has struggled against top-notch competition. He turns 31 in June and has missed five or more games in three of his five seasons as the Texans’ starter, along with failing to finish several other starts (Sage Rosenfels closed out four games in 2007). Houston could free up approximately $7 million of cap space by cutting Schaub, which would give the franchise a nice start toward making a deal with Manning work financially for both sides. Granted, this would be a risk, but, worst-case scenario, Smith and Kubiak are high on T.J. Yates, who filled in as a rookie for the injured Schaub and led Houston to its first-ever playoff victory in January. If the Texans take the leap of faith, Manning should jump at the opportunity...

    We were just mentioned as a dark horse on Mike & Mike in the Morning, but Adam Schefter said it would most likely come down to the Redskins, Jets, Dolphins, and another team i can't seem to remember...

    They even mentioned us trading Schaub to someone like the Redskins for two second rounders or even a first.

    I'd be more than thrilled to have Peyton as a Texan but I don't want to get my hopes up

    Wouldn't be crazy if the Jags claimed Manning off waviers.
    New owner
    team with a history of bad ticket sales
    Gabbert is garbage
    Jag def is good and have a run game

    Mike & Mike also saying they think Reggie Wayne will follow Peyton wherever he goes, we would be fools not to consider this

    I really hope that guy isn't listing those in order of likeliness.

    If I had to bet, I'd say he's Miami bound.

    Manning will not hit waivers, once the Colts let him go - he is a free agent and can sign with any team he wants.

    Manning is not coming to Houston. God I'll be glad when this crap is over with and he's signed with someone.

    Fun, for some, to talk about. But not going to happen.

    Agreed.

    Or let's bring him in. First practice let Mario & Barwin meet-in-the-middle and make a Manning sandwich knocking him out of the league for good. Release him paying the minimum, and move on.

    I love how talking heads try a justify why Manning wouldn't be a good fit in Houston because he doesn't roll out and use play action...

    THEN they roll video footage of Manning... DOING EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAY HE CAN'T DO! About 5-6 clips were play action and 2 were him rolling out.

    People are telling me Matt Schaub can do something Peyton Manning can't is very, very hard to believe.

    the ONLY 2 reason this will not happen is...

    1: Kubiak's ego will never let Manning's ego run the offense

    2: money

    otherwise Manning should already be signed, in a Texans uniform and Schaub traded. I would MUCH rather Yates or whom ever the future is, learning under one of the best QB in the history of the NFL rather a mediocre noodle arm that can barely stay healthy...

    BUT that's just me...

    lol, was about to say the same thing...

    Waivers only comes into play for players who have less than 4 seasons accrued, or when any player is cut/released during the regular season, but after the trade deadline.

    Some guys that were on waivers recently were Randy Moss after being cut by the Vikings, Jason Allen released by the Dolphins and claimed by Texans, Kyle Orton was released by the Broncos this season and claimed by the Chiefs.
