I think he's going to wind up seriously compounding his neck injuries by continuing to play, but since he's obviously not listening to me, I'll just entertain the thought that maybe he'll be alright ... he does have that imposing forehead after all ...

I think his neck is fine. He had a full year off, to heal, work out, study, game plan, focus, whatever. He will be fine for at least three or four more years.

I agree.... How man times has a 35 year old player recovered FULLY from an injury that caused them to miss an ENTIRE season......

We are talking about neck and nerve not muscle and bone.

Besides.... we put Manning down is his prime... in prime time.... we actually pout them both down in their prime.... I am not worried a bit about him.

All joking aside, I hope he does no long term damage to himself.

He can still walk away. Anything after he steps foot on the field again is something he decided to allow.

True dat!! That run of QB's that we went through in 09...Warner, Favre then Manning....That will go down as one, if not THE strongest group of QB's one team has ever plowed through (or bountied through), in the history of the NFL!!!

Neither QB's nor Defenses scare me..... Teams with hard running games and top 10 recievers with speed and enough ht to burn us have been our Kryptonite.

Untill our new D-Coordinator has proven we can tackle and contain.... this will still worry me more than any QB.

I'm not looking at it from the angle of being able to beat Peyton or not, though with a QB that can throw the ball, a few good receivers & already having that defense, SFran will be hard to beat, I'm just thinking about Manning seriously injuring himself.

In '91, we had Mike Utely carted off the field with a life-changing spinal cord injury. It was a terrible thing to see, I don't want to see something similiar happen to Peyton.

Neck/spinal cord injuries are not something to mess with.

Never liked the Mannings. They're a bunch of spoiled brat yuppies. I don't give a chit where he ends up. Seriously, I could care less. Peyton is a whiner.

I think if Peyton goes to San Fran they will end up being a lot like the Vikings in 09 with Favre. Seriously good team, with everyone fawning all over their jock, good but a bit overhyped, but not ultimately good enough to go the distance and really win the whole thing, and then they're a shambles a year or two later. Or like the Jets with Favre, before that. Whatever you think of him, Peyton Manning is a journeyman WIN NOW quarterback option, 1 or 2 years at the most, and maybe not able to go all the way.

I'm kinda' seeing the comparison, but was the '09 Vikings defense as good as SFran's? That's what makes me think they could do it, combined with acquiring Moss/Manning & their run game, they've pretty much covered all bases.

IDK, that offer from Tennessee looks awful good though, I'm almost thinking SFran is going to lose the bidding war ... 5yrs/$90mil from Denver isn't anything to sneeze at either ... ol' Peyton, it's nice having options,
