I think it will come down to teams that can afford him. He definitely is slowing down a bit...but he is still very much a capable back. He does a lot of things well and he plays very hard. He isn't going to play for a vet minimum deal and I'm not sure Seattle has the funds to sign a guy like him. They got a lot of mouths to feed on that defense. I'd expect a team that isn't cap strapped with a need a versatile back to give him a shot. He has been a great back for a long time....hope he gets a shot at a championship.
So voicing your opinion is piling on? No matter if you like or dislike Newton having opinions comes with the territory of being a QB. When your the face and the leader of your team it is expected for you to act professional. If you are inclined to defend Newton that is fine but when some don't it's not your place to tell them they are wrong or you have had enough of what you call piling on. No one is forcing you to read any comments. Lord know we wouldn't want to hurt Newtons ego.
I am sure that speculation even if Manning has decided, the media doesnt know and just gave that out\
Right now Peyton is just enjoying it all , he will give an answer when things wind down and not so emotional and I am sure after a discussion with Ashley more than parents but them too, he may
have decided to retire and the win may have rejuvenated his spirit to play
we will have to wait , its speculation now for everyone at this point
