Sounds Like Manning Is Going To Denver was reporting late Monday morning that Peyton Manning has charged his agent Tom Condon to negotiate the particulars of a contract with the Denver Broncos.

Spearheaded by Hall of Fame QB John Elway, the defending division champion Broncos went after Manning hard and apparently have been successful in convincing the 36-year old, four-time MVP to continue his career in the AFC West.

San Francisco and Tennessee sit and wait to see what happens with the Broncos as they were the other finalists in the Peyton Chase.

    Best thing to ever happen to Pioli. He has re-focused from candy wrappers, coffee, pens and under-mining Haley and moved on to trying to improve his team.

    The Chiefs have the least talented QB in the division. They have to build a super team around Cassel. More work left to do.

    Amazing how quickly I went from admiring a champion who arguably is one of the best all-time at his position, to despising a has-been that doesn’t know when to hang it up. Hopefully his career is over, and he can retire without pain or debilitating injury.

    Josh-I guess one consolation to Manning signing with the Donkeys, Romeo’s defenses in New England seemed to always stop him. When he faced Romeo’s Chiefs defense in 2010, he was totally ineffective. Just hope that can continue. We definitely need a top nose tackle even more than ever. The rush up the middle is what bothers Manning the most.

    This unfortunate development for the Chiefs makes it more of a priority to sign another pass rusher like Wimbley. KC will need to really reinforce the defense to be able to stop Manning.

    Hopefully, Manning’s contract will be so huge that Donkeytown will have difficulty surounding him with talent.

    tx-I just saw some blogs from Oakland fans that Wembley is overrated. They say he is not effective against good solid tackles. I’m not sure that’s accurate, buT just what I read. Like I said above we need pressure up the middle. We need a stud NT. A great running game keeps him off the field. I think we should have that with Winston at RT and Charles and Hillis.

    I’m not worried. Manning had lots of help in Indy; Tom Moore as OC, great OL, great WRs, etc. Denver does not have those in place … yet.

    Also, do the Donkeys play the Ravens at all this year? Bernard Pollard now has a new … cough, target, cough, … opportunity for recognition.

    Go CHIEFS!

    Let’s just bury him in the snow. No more dome Mr. Manning…

    Manning to Denver? Fine. I want to whip his ass and whip it hard..the Chiefs owe him a few old business paybacks. Give me a little more D help (ILB) and maybe a pocket crashing NT, and nail that Manning pelt to the wall.

    Manning is changing mascots. He’s going from young horses to jackass. Nice.

    Have to wonder if Manning had any impact on Pioli being so aggressive in this year’s free agency. Probably not, but based on previous years, got to wonder.

    With Manning in Denver, Pioli has to revise his view of what is necessary for the Chiefs at QB. Cassel might be fine against a team with tebow twice a year but Manning?

    el cid-I agree but I don’t know of any other options besides Cassell right now. I don’t think Quinn is anything other than a backup and not real competition. It would be a longshot, but we could possibly draft Tannehill. I’m not sure he’s worth a pick that high plus he would need a couple of years to develop. He is talented, but but we will probably go the safe route of NT,OG, or ILB. They are needs as well. There are a few journeyman QBs, but none really an upgrade over Cassell.

    Niblick, I agree that a NT is a high priority for the Chiefs this offseason. I’m just not sure where KC is going to come up with a dominant man in the middle other than making a risky move up for Poe. The Chiefs will need a smothering defense to be able to slow down Manning, Rivers and Palmer.

    With the worst QB in the division, Kansas City must pound the ball, “Ground Chuck” style. Drafting another running back fairly high in the draft and adding depth to the OL ought to be considered to keep the ball moving. I remember when Christian Okoye and Barry Word wore out defenses last century. Perhaps that is what we’ll see come September.

    Yea Manning is in Denver that still not very good roster. They only have pass rush on defense they can’t stop the run and they’re secondary is below average. Especially at safety. Then offensively they don’t have #1 receiver which Manning still hasn’t proved he can be as successful with having a Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison both who are future Hall of Fame receivers. Then running game is going suffer with no Tebow. You want to know what Denver run game going look like check out stats when Kyle Orton was starter last yr. To me Manning will make them better passing teams but with that schedule and roster they’re still going to win less games. I still think division is going to be between us and the Raiders. Both teams have best talent in the division on both sides of the ball. Chargers to me are 3rd and window is closed for them they just have lost too many of their good players.

    Stats for the last healthy year of each projected starting AFC West QB.
    TDS 27 INT 20 YDS 4,624 RTG 88.7
    TDS 13 INT 16 YDS 2,753 RTG 80.5
    TDS 27 INT 7 YDS 3,116 RTG 93.0
    TDS 33 INT 17 YDS 4,700 RTG 91.9

    You might be surprised which line of stats belong to which QB.

    edj- I agree with most of your post. The only thing is the raidas had to cut so much talent (like Routt) to under the cap. After this week, I think we have the best roster when everyone is healthy. There is still work to do as Bob points out.
    To beat a dead horse ;) I hope we sign a NT before the draft.

    There is a very good column on Arrowhead Addict about the pros and cons of Pioli and Hunt. Pretty compleing reasons to love or hate them. Good read.
