Cradle of the quarterbacks?Some unknown player named Peyton Manning agreed to join the Denver Broncos today, ending weeks of speculation where he would end up. Peyton's arrival in the AFC West makes the division a sudden powerhouse in the arms race that is the NFL.
With Manning, Palmer and San Diego's Rivers three of the four AFC teams have QB's that were taken in the top 4 of their respective draft classes. Kansas City is going in a diffrent direction with a stable of running backs and improving their offensive line so expect them to run more than their AFC West counterparts.
Manning, if healthy, makes Denver the favorite to repeat their AFC West win. However, Manning's health is not a given. Even at less than full strength, Mannng is dangerous, however. He is not only a great leader on the field, he also calls the plays at the line of scrimmage and is adept at reading defenses.
Raiders' head coach Dennis Allen is known for being a creative defensive...

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com,free agent wide receiver Mario Manningham has signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
There was simply no way the Giants were going to retain Manningham. He was looking for a lot more money then they could offer. Even though I believe he didn’t get the kind of pay day he was looking for. Right now we don’t have...
