There was a spate of articles in the Star recently about what Peyton is up to.
I didn't read them.
It felt strange and foreign to overtly ignore news about someone that I cared so much about, a player whose every move was of daily interest to me for more than a decade.
At some point, I stopped in and tried to scan one of them, but that felt even more strange.
It probably sounds stupidly obvious, but it just dawned on me that Peyton is gone.
I've known he was gone. I watched the presser. I saw him sign with the Broncos. I watched the draft.
Still, somehow, it had never quite registered until he started actually practicing with the Broncos.

According to Lindsey Jones of the Denver Post, the Broncos have been monitoring the amount of throws quarterback Peyton Manning has been making each practice.
Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said that they haven’t limited the types of throws or the distance of the throws that Manning’s been making.
“His reps will increase as we go,” McCoy said.
“But a four-time MVP made you some QB that we used to know!”, laments the heartbroken Tim Tebow fan, body painted in Denver Broncos colors, singing to a framed picture of John Elway. Well done, Internets. Well done. Gotye’s got nothing on this.
It’s confirmed: Jim Harbaugh could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves. Or at least he’d try to if it was in the best interest of his football team.
The 49ers coach spoke to the media on Wednesday and attempted to spin the reports that said the team pursued Peyton Manning in March.
“There’s a perception out there, and it’s an erroneous perception, that...
Jim Harbaugh wants to be clear: Despite working out Peyton Manning, the San Francisco 49ers always wanted quarterback Alex Smith. The 49ers head coach veered into an unprovoked discussion about Manning and Smith at the end of his session with reporters Wednesday. "Oh one other thing: There's a perception out there and it's an erroneous perception that we were flirting...
In case you haven’t been listening to the radio, this is a parody of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know.” It focuses on a Indianapolis Colts fan and a Denver Broncos fan dealing with the departures of Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow from their team.
Can’t beat starting your day with a little football humor!

San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh claimed Wednesday afternoon that the 49ers never considered pursuing future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning when he was a free agent this winter. Prior to signing a five-year contract worth $96 million with … Continue reading →
In a recent interview with the 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, Harbaugh had some interesting comments when the subject of the niners’ pursuing former free agent Peyton Manning came up.
“It’s an erroneous perception that we were flirting with Peyton Manning,” Harbaugh said. “I keep hearing that over and over again. It’s silly, and it’s untrue. It’s phony. Even the...
Cam Newton had a record breaking rookie season, breaking Peyton Manning’s rookie passing yards record and shattering the all-time single season quarterback rushing touchdown record. He also brought the Panthers back from irrelevance, helping them to a 6-10 record despite awful defense, and giving them a lot of hope for the future. Possibly most importantly, he silenced all the...
