Didn't help Peyton's cause that his receivers dropped plenty of catchable passes.

Peyton looked uninspired.

Only watched some of the game. His receivers dropped balls, but he overthrew a lot of deep balls. That doesn't really support a "not much left in his arm" theory.

True. All those short passes. Nothing downfield like the Peyton of old.

His passes looked like ducks that had just received a load of shotgun pellets.

Hang it up before you get hurt.

I'd be mad if Peyton retired. Why? Because dang it my Bills need a QB. Peyton is no longer a top five QB. And we are talking about a guy who probably views himself and always has been a top 3 QB in the league. With that said, he is likely still easily top 10. But is it worth it for Peyton to keep grinding if he knows he is no longer a top 5 QB in the league? When you are THAT good, you just are not wired to play at a lower level even if it is still better than 70% of the starting QBs in the league.

Peyton isn't a bad QB, he just needs to give up the reigns a bit and not try to win it with his arm. Broncos need a better running game.

I think CJ Anderson proved over the past few games that he could be the answer at RB (his run on 4th and 1 in the fourth quarter was great, and ended up delaying the inevitable for a few more moments). However, the Broncos need to undergo a philosophical change in order to survive, I believe, for another year with Peyton at QB: They must commit to the run, and stay committed in Sept and Oct and not just in Dec and Jan. Manning will need to hand off more than he probably ever has, with the hopes of preserving his arm for the needs of the playoffs. Probably easier said than done.

Additionally, Denver needs to sign back most of the current receiving corps since most of those guys are pretty good at YAC.

Finally, where was the Denver pass rush? Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware were pretty non-existent. The way that rush was today, perhaps Ware should follow Peyton into retirement if that is what Manning were to do.

Default I hope not

He had a long 2013 season, which ended in the SB loss to the Hawks. Shorter off-season than most, shorter time to recuperate from that long season took its toll on him this year. He gets more time off now to recover for next season, prepare himself for the long haul. I think he'll be back.

I'd like to see him back too.

Nobody's saying that Manning has suddenly become Rex Grossman; it's just a matter of whether he can win another championship. The way the game is now is different than when John Elway rode Terrell Davis to two Super Bowls. And like I said earlier, there's clearly less juice on the deep ball than there used to be. His limited mobility is another issue. If he had Green Bays offensive line and Eddie Lacy he might have a shot, but not many teams are blessed with those assets.
