Really, why all the fuss?

Manning got a call informing him that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had flown, unannounced, with Seattle G.M. John Schneider to the airport in Englewood. Carroll would do whatever Manning wanted -- talk for a while in Denver or on the plane to Arizona, his next visit, or fly him to Seattle for a lengthier discussion.  


Peyton Manning does not like surprises.  He said no thanks.  Carroll flew home.

Why all the fuss about Manning? Just because he never missed a start before last year and never had a passer rating below 100 after his rookie year?  His four MVP awards?  I guess that would be compelling, if his head were still properly attached to his body.

This isn't the NBA.  It's a team sport.  Brent Favre has shown, twice, how far a veteran star can take you, and how severely his diva behavior can damage your program.  With Peyton and Elway having a very special relationship, my only question is how John Fox will...oh there's your answer.

Glad the Seahawks missed this prima donna, looking forward to the games.
