    Manning talks about possible retirement

    Peyton that is:

    He just gets better as he gets older. Would he consider coaching up Eli when his playing career is done?

    He already pretty much admitted to unofficially doing just that while rehabbing his neck in 2011...

    I thought this would be in general sports more than smack talk, but interesting nonetheless.

    I think he'll play one more year after this. Demaryius Thomas, Welker, Julius Thomas, Ryan Clady and Von Miller. These guys' contracts all expire in 2015, and I doubt they'll be able to keep half of them, let alone all.

    Peyton's smart enough to know that he's getting older, although you wouldn't know it by the way he plays, and that the end will come sooner rather than later. I can see him maybe playing two more years and then retiring. He won't be like Favre and retire, unretire, retire, unretire, etc.

    And I doubt he'll be coaching Eli up and I doubt Eli would want Peyton to coach him up. Both have admitted that they talk football and compare notes, but that's about it. Besides, what 33-year-old really wants their big brother to 'coach them up?'
    One of these teams is not like the others

    This sounds reasonable. It's gonna be crazy having an NFL without Peyton/Tom..

    Humor me for a second....

    -Eli played his best season ever when Peyton was out with the neck injury. Eli also plays his best ball in the postseason, usually when Peyton is already eliminated for the season. Peyton just happened to have the best season of his career, while Eli had his worst. It was complete opposite of the spectrum.

    -Before JPP was drafted, Tuck was one the best DE's in the league. Since JPP was drafted, that changed dramatically. Tuck "then" played his best ball over the last two years when "JPP" went out this year with his shoulder injury and looked like the Tuck of old.


    Is it me or does anyone else think this way or notice these kinds of trends. Okay.... so this is where I'm going with this. According to my theory , if Peyton retires, Eli should then, reclaim all of the "mojo" previously stolen from him and become an elite QB once again. The sad part of my theory is....If JPP comes back healthy next year and Tuck is re-signed....expect Tuck to suck once again.

    All in theory of course and because I'm bored at the moment. Goodnight and thank you for reading.

    Ah, you've learned of the Law of Conservation of Manning.

    Okay, the JPP theory I hadn't thought of.
