Peyton Manning Will Join the Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning has made a decision to come to the mile high city. On Saturday Peyton Manning broke the hearts of San Fransico and Tennessee by giving them a phone call to inform them of his decision to continue his career wearing the orange and blue.

For the Broncos this makes the biggest move in free agency of the history of the team. The media mayhem will continue in the city of Denver who experienced Tebowmania just one season ago. They have transformed themselves into Super Bowl contenders by adding the legendary quarterback.

Peyton Manning has proven to be one of the best quarterback not just in his era but in the history of the game. He has won 4 MVP titles in his career to accompany 2 Super Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl victory. He is the definition of an elite NFL quarterback. Year in and year out Manning lead his Colts to 10 or more wins.

There is no doubt that the next step for the Broncos is to place the fan favorite Tim Tebow on the trade block. Having a first ballot hall-of-famer on your team means he will be on the bench. If they receive any interest there is no doubt they make a move to trade him. Even though Tebow showed great heart and the will to win there is just no place for him on the field with Payton Manning now on the team.

A big reason why Peyton Manning chose the Denver Broncos is former Bronco legend John Elway, now the Vice President of Football Operations for the team. Elway won both of his only Super Bowls in the later part of his career with the team and could have persuaded Manning to come to Denver and repeat his feat.

Peyton Manning considered many things before making his decision. Here are a few things that most likely played out in his for each destination.

San Fansisco 49ers

PROS: Having been one win away form a going to the Super Bowl they were the team that was most ready to make another run. They have an amazing defense lead by All Pro linebacker Patrick Willis. Manning would also have a very large athletic target in Vernon Davis who has repeatedly show the ability to make a great play for the tight end position.

CONS: Jim Harbaugh's ego might get in the way. When the coach want things done his way it may be difficult to attract a quarterback who has always had complete control of the offense. Playing for the 49ers means he would potentially face his brother Eli Maning, who plays for the New York Giants, every year in the playoffs. Peyton has stated that he would not like to go up against his brother and possibly knocking him out of a potential Super Bowl. He knows the AFC and would most likely want to stay in that conference.

Tennessee Titans

PROS: Peyton Manning played college at the university of Tennessee. Going to Tennessee would mean a home coming for not just himself but for his wife. The fans would instantly adore him and would welcome him with open arms. The Titans have a very strong running game lead by All Pro running back Chris Johnson who has previously passed the 2000 yard season mark.

CONS: Bud Adams lead the push for the All Pro quarterback. The owner of the Titans is known for making runs for great players and always coming up short. They already have Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback and even have a talented former first rounder in Jake Locker in the same position.

Denver Broncos

PROS: The entire organization from head coach John Fox, owner Pat Bowlen and chief executive John Elway all took part in recruiting Manning. They gave the quarterback no pressure to make a fast decision and said they would be ready when he was. The Broncos had just won the weak AFC West with inconsistent play form Tim Tebow. The team has a great defense to keep games close and give Manning a chance to win more games. To take pressure of Manning the Broncos also have the leagues best running attacks.

CONS: Tim Tebow has a large following and adding Manning would cause many fans to turn on the new quarterback. Tebow and Manning have the same agent and this could get awkward in meetings.

Now we know having taken all this into consideration Manning has chosen Denver as his new home. It was most likely the best overall package that was offered and just made the most sense. Peyton Manning has been cleared to play physically by doctors after his neck surgeries and will be ready to lead the Denver Broncos in this upcoming NFL season.
