Former NFL running back and current NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk doesn’t believe that quarterback Peyton Manning will sign with a team from the NFC. “The same reason why Eli Manning didn’t go to the San Diego Chargers. It wasn’t because he didn’t want to go to San Diego, it’s because he didn’t want to play in the AFC. We need to see a Manning Super Bowl, that’s what they want, that’s what this family wants. We saw the speculation with the Harbaugh’s when they played each other, and that being a possibility of being a Super Bowl match up. He will not upstage his brother and knock him out of going to the Super Bowl by going to the NFC.” I understand where Faulk is coming from with his assessment, but I do believe the one team that might entice Manning would be the Arizona Cardinals, because of Larry Fitzgerald and the other weapons they have on their team. In the end I do believe Manning will sign with an AFC team and I believe it’ll be the Miami Dolphins, but that’s just my opinion.
  • I think this is legit. Sort of a Klitschko brothers approach to their sport.
  • Thats BS he wont go the NFC EAST but he wont rule out half the teams becuase of his brother being in the NFC. Not to mention you got Bree's.Eli,Rodgers,Vick,romo already
