The kyle orten signing is interesting, but i doubt he'll beat out romo. A good backup qb to have though

Romo will do that to himself.

Will the Niners signing of Mario Manningham seal the deal for Peyton? He is supposed to make a decision by Monday or Tuesday, but this is really turning into a no brainer. The Niners far and away give him the best chance to win.

Looks like Manning goes to Denver and Tebow goes... ???


Also Seattle gets Matt Flynn. Cool.Maybe Seattle will have a decent QB this season.

Well, I didn't think Denver was a good fit for Peyton, but it sure is going to be fun to watch. I'm a Titans homer so that also could have had something to do with it.

Now the key question is, do you take a risk on Peyton as a starting fantasy QB?

I think you'd be able to get him as a steal in the draft.

It depends how deep your league is. I'd say >10 don't risk it, but >12 go for it. I'll be picking him up as a back up if he's still available

Rumors have it they will be dealing Tebow out. Makes me wonder, why not just keep Tebow and have him train under Payton, unless Payton doesn't want anything to do with him....

Yup. I can see Peyton standing there saying " I don't want to see no Tebowing. This game's about football".

I swear the way he talks sometimes reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn.

I think Tebowmania + the Peyton Manning's coming-to-town-so-hello-Super-Bowl-circus would be too much of a distraction. I also don't think Elway and Fox want Tebow to stay. I think they want to groom another pocket passer to replace Manning and Tebow is not that guy.

If so, I think the Broncos are overpaying for Peyton. A five year deal at age 36? Ridiculous.

Contracts are pretty meaningless in the NFL these days. The only thing that maters is how much guaranteed and for how long.

I could see Tebow being traded to Miami.

The key question is will it improve your chances of winning the title? I'd say not.

In Tebow's case it's more 'Gone 3:19' than 'John 3:16', methinks.

I can see Tebow to Jacksonville, purely as a financial move. They need to sell seats. Also Tebow went to high school around there I think. They win a few games a year and continue to be irrelevant in the NFL.

I think the Broncos need to get Mike Wallace as the home-run hitter with Thomas as the possession guy. Maybe trade for Jonathan Stewart and sign Dallas Clark to solidify the offense. Then look to the defense - not sure who's still out there on that side though.

I would definitely start Manning in a 10-team FF league. No question.

If I had Rodgers and Peyton both on my team I'd start Rodgers.
