Peyton Manning Rumors: NFP Talks Some Sense About The Texans

Okay, so over at the National Football Post, Andrew Brandt takes on the realistic teams that may have a shot at Peyton Manning. It's not good news for anyone arguing that Houston should take a shot at him, since he brings up "reality" and "facts" and all sorts of no-fun things. Rivers did the same thing over at Battle Red Blog yesterday and made a lot of "sense."

I get it, too. I know the Texans chances of actually going after Peyton Manning weren't good. Matt Schaub is the guy and the Texans have a lot of money guaranteed to him. Plus, Manning wouldn't come cheap and this team will have some holes after this year's free agency is done.

Oh, and you add the injury risk, which is probably more pronounced with Manning than with Schaub, and the situation gets less and less likely.

I do like the idea of upgrading at quarterback, but I think it almost makes more sense to try and trade up to No. 2 and pick RGIII than to sign Peyton Manning. Neither are happening, you know, but it makes for good speculation.
