    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Haven't been watching it. Free agency begins March 7. That's when it starts getting interesting.

    I don't watch the combine or follow the draft. It's just not interesting or entertaining to me. To me it means nothing until the season starts. To me football season starts with the pre-season games and the college games. Like I mentioned before, at this point I'd like to follow the NHL but it's hard to find the games on TV in bars. Right now I'm more interested in UofM (Hurricanes) Basketball than the NBA. The NBA is really only the Lebron James and Steph Curry show. Why bother with the regular season?

    Watched about 30 minutes of the combine, more for the analysis than anything else. Watching athletes, even at the highest level, do practice drills doesn't do much for me, which in part explains my disdain for the shootout in the NHL.

    Who said players don't go balls out at the combine, or in his case give a dick.

    **"The Denver Broncos are so proud to have called Peyton Manning our quarterback for the last four years, and we can't thank him enough for his many contributions to our team and community. On the field, Peyton's competitiveness, intensity and leadership helped us to one of the most successful periods in our history, highlighted by four consecutive division titles, two AFC Championship victories and a win in Super Bowl 50. Off the field, Peyton's kindness and generosity, especially toward those in need, made a real difference on a very personal level. Our team, our organization and our community are all better because of Peyton Manning. He raised the performance of those around him and raised the level of excellence here at the Broncos. Peyton's been a first-class ambassador who did things the right way and had such a positive impact on the Broncos. We look forward to celebrating his future induction into both the Broncos' Ring of Fame as well as the Pro Football Hall of Fame." **

    congrats to Peyton for a great career

    it would still have been a great career had the Panther O-line been slightly more than incompetent and his team thereby lost

    it may be that Peyton's style of QBing is a thing of the past making him the last great of an era with Brady when he retires

    I think he knew he was gonna retire after the SB (providing a victory. If they would have lostt, who knows?). John Elway probably knew too. But you know these athletes and their egos. No one's telling me when I'm gonna retire. I'll retire when I damn well please..... He did the right thing. He had a great career. Good on him.

    Denver was going to cut him anyway. No way they were paying him 19-mil for one more season. They were already committing to Osweiler. Manning would have had to land on another team, learn another offense....

    Yeah there was a "rumor" that the Dolphins were interested in him. I'd take Manning right now. Seriously, that's how pathetic the Dolphins organization is. They get rid of their young talent and goes out and courts a "name."

    Vic's Dolphins apparently just traded for CB Byron Maxwell and LB Kiko Alonso from the Eagles - both were disappointments this year.

    No word yet on what they gave up.
