Peyton Manning did not have a pass intercepted in his first four games, and one each in his next three. So the Denver quarterback's three intercepted passes in Sunday's 45-21 victory over Washington were a jolt to him. “Well, it's disappointing,” Manning said after the win. “There's no question, because you feel like you put your defense in a tough spot. Those guys had a great game plan and executed it and all of the sudden we're down, 21-7. The defense had not given up 21 points, they'd give up I guess seven.

Peyton Manning might be interested in the Houston Texans -- there's plenty of speculation out there that he is -- but he can cross them off his list. At least that's the message that Texans owner Bob McNair sent Tuesday in an interview with KILT-AM in Houston. He said the team is perfectly happy with current quarterback Matt Schaub and isn't ready to move him aside, even for a four-time most valuable player. "If there were an ideal club for him to be with, if it was just his decision alone, it would be the Texans because that gives him the best chance to win and that's really what he's looking for," McNair told the station, according to NFL.com.

The Tennessee Titans are pulling out the stops to get Peyton Manning. Titans owner Bud Adams has offered the star quarterback a "contract for life," to come to Tennessee, hoping to lure him with a front-office position with the team once his playing days are through, according to a Houston TV station. Adams told KHOU Channel 11 on Wednesday he's not concerned about Manning's arm strength after his multiple neck surgeries that sidelined him for all of last season. "I'm only concerned how strong it is in September, when he starts the regular season," Adams said, adding that much as he likes second-year quarterback Jake Locker -- whom the Titans drafted eighth overall last year -- the franchise had to "go for it" with Manning.

Reporting from Denver -- In his introductory news conference as the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning said Tuesday he has a long way to go to be where he wants to be health-wise, but emphasized he was an open book with the teams courting him. Ultimately, he chose the Broncos over San Francisco and Tennessee. "In the end, I felt the Broncos were just a great fit," Manning said. John Elway, the famed Broncos quarterback and now the team's executive vice president of football operations, said he watched Manning throw about 60 passes in an unscripted workout at Duke University but felt most confident after asking the quarterback a simple question.

The Denver Broncos have called a news conference for noon PDT today, presumably to introduce Peyton Manning as their new quarterback. On Monday, Manning instructed his agent to negotiate a deal with the Broncos, with the four-time Most Valuable Player having chosen them over Tennessee and San Francisco. Manning is expected to command a contract in the neighborhood of $95 million over five years. The Denver Post reported today that Manning was considering calling Frank Tripucka, the first quarterback in Broncos history, to request the use of jersey No. 18. That was Tripucka's number, which the club had retired.

Peyton Manning has picked the Denver Broncos to be his next team, and Las Vegas has already adjusted its Super Bowl odds accordingly. According to R.J. Bell of Pregame.com, Denver's odds to win the next Super Bowl were as high as 70 to 1 in February, but have now dropped to 10 to 1. Only four teams have better odds: the Packers (6 to 1), Patriots (7 to 1), 49ers (7 to 1), and Saints (8 to 1). The Broncos opened as 25-to-1 longshots to land Manning, meaning a $100 bet on that would have paid $2,500.

If you were the greatest quarterback in the history of a team, would you welcome perhaps the greatest quarterback of all-time to come to that team and maybe make you the second-greatest quarterback in team history? If your name is Dan Marino, you would. Marino, the former Miami Dolphins quarterback, says if Manning has any questions about playing for the Dolphins, he would gladly answer them. He has enough people "working with him to help him make the right decisions," Marino said Thursday, but if Manning asks, "I would definitely answer.
