The Colts reportedly plan to draft future franchise quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. If that spells the end of Peyton Manning's tenure in Indianapolis, the veteran could end up in the nation's capital. According to ESPN's Bram Weinstein, a source indicates that it's "very likely" that Manning and center Jeff Saturday will join the Redskins. Manning inked a five-year, $90 million last offseason, but the Colts could elect to rebuild with Luck at the helm going forward. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported last week that Indianapolis will not trade Manning, but with the quarterback's...

Report: 49ers, Seahawks & Cardinals Possible Trade Destinations for Manning

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, general managers and people close to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning don’t see him going to the Jets if he does end up leaving Indy in the offseason. If Manning ends up being available via trade, the teams that GM’s around the NFL see as potential landing spots are the 49ers, Seahawks and the Cardinals. We mentioned...

For the Houston Texans the Ravens Represent a Different Kind of Test

This season has been about perseverance for the Texans, what started with a stroke of luck in their favour in the form of a neck injury to Peyton Manning turned out to be a season riddled with injury problems and adversity of their own. The 2011 Texans have overcome a great deal to make it [...]

Giants-49ers NFC Championship Game Matchup Features Tale of Two #1′s: Eli Manning and Alex Smith

The 15-1 Green Bay Packers (who peaked in September-November)  have indeed been exited from the NFL Playoffs by the New York Giants (who are peaking now), and Hakeem Nicks was indeed wide open on an end-of-half Hail Mary. So much for the Green Bay dynasty; as former GM Ron Wolf would say, the 2011 Packers proved to be just a fart in the wind. Deal with it. The silver lining is...

The new Book of Eli: He’s among the NFL’s best

Little brother has arrived. The only thing hot about Green Bay's Lambeau Field as Sunday afternoon turned to night was New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who orchestrated four flawless quarters in a 37-20 road win over the defending Super Bowl champion Packers. In upsetting the defending champs, he put up some big numbers completing 21 of 33 passes for 330 yards with...

Can the Colts recover?

Pro Football Weekly has an unnamed source who says the Colts and Jim Caldwell can rebound after this horrible season: "Indianapolis should have a young quarterback for the next 10 years (after the draft). Peyton Manning is coming back. If you have an elite quarterback, you have a chance every year. They have some issues on the offensive line they still need to fix, but they...

The Debate That Just Won’t Die

The “Is Eli Elite?” Nonsense is Still in the Hopper We dropped this stupid debate awhile ago. There is no question – in the minds of everyone here in NYC – that Eli Manning not only one of the best QBs in the league, he is one of the best players in the league. Sure, we had our doubts, but over time Eli won us over. What more does this guy have to do to convince people...

Big Apple big enough for both Mannings? Eli would make room

It's still a pipe dream, but Giants quarterback Eli Manning sees solid upside to the prospect of his older brother, Peyton Manning, leaving the Colts behind to join the Jets in 2012.

Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady All More Qualified for MVP Than Peyton Manning, Steve McNair in 2003

What does having an MVP quarterback get you? For the Saints and Packers, not much. That's the case after the Saints and Packers were both stunned over the weekend with losses to the 49ers and Giants, respectively. The season for either Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers, though, isn't yet over, as one of the two quarterbacks will almost assuredly be named league MVP during Super...
