The guys opened the show by discussing WIldcard weekend in the NFL.
Florio on Manning.

[0:03:29] ... to be playing why unless. This is some sort of an apology Peyton Manning for Latin twist in the wind. For the last few weeks when it looked like they were nudging him to the curb. This is a strategic move aimed at making everyone think its patent job again it's not rock cross filers Brock has been sent back to oblivion. It's Peyton Manning Peyton Manning Peyton Manning south Peyton Manning struggles in the divisional round. Just like rocky switching from right back to left me here we go. And the opponents not ready for because the one clear thing we came away from Sunday the chargers were not ready to see Peyton Manning why because no one thought there was any chance we're gonna see. Peyton Manning so. Gary Kubiak he gets the benefit of the doubt here he's played this thing the right way he has been. Deceitful and dishonest and obtuse about its quarterback position. And from a strategic standpoint that's brilliant does Manning have a short leash in your estimation because the second part of the question is would it be possible that he would do the opposite and replaced Manning with offs while I think it is ID is not think back to. Before Peyton Manning was injured and miss all those weeks. He was struggling enough that some like me were saying you gotta pull him out of the game at C Ross while a condemn you got a guy who's in the last year's rookie contract you know crying about lost while Peyton Manning struggling how much worse can Oskar would be even Manning Manning stinks right now. Know what to do it because. Peyton Manning's Peyton Manning and there are issues at play there that just prevent you from Yankee Peyton Manning for a guy you know nothing about well. Now we know something about opera across Wyler and if the Broncos. Are down ten points. And Peyton Manning's throw on the wounded docs and just doesn't look like himself again you know like he did all season long. Is anybody be surprised if state. Flip tobacco army that is anybody to sell you can't do that you can't put Peyton Manning on the bench outlook it would be an aggressive move because they've yet to bench him during a game. But this is about. Survival this is about getting to the Super Bowl and Payne manage not to be back with the Broncos next year so who cares if he's upset he'll get over he's got fifteen million dollar salary this year and can still make his four million back to the team. Gets to the Super Bowl gets half that if they win the Super Bowl gets the other half he should want Gary Kubiak to do everything he can't. To help the team get to the Super Bowl even if that means put Payton on the bench if I give Manning is reasonably healthy who runs Kubiak offense better offs while there Manning. Bop its hot swap. This us why was the only god can run Kubiak softens the challenges. How much is Kubiak willing to tolerate. Eight limited vision of that offense to accommodate Peyton Manning hit in a week we saw this coming did knowing them they hired Kubiak. We saw that there was going to be trouble and we saw that. That you know that there was an awkward as they're backed at last offseason when they asked Peyton Manning initially take a ten million dollar pay cut. What we eve he this is not gonna end well and and spent a ...

[0:07:45] ... That the moment that Andy Reid got fired and it's time for Jon Gruden to come back.

They had a group and realizes lucky he's. Monday Night Football he does is quarterback camp he's involved in the game he has done afterward I get fired he's gonna have that job. ...
[0:10:16] ... you know I I can't imagine the Texans wanting. A version of Peyton Manning four years later the browns. Wouldn't want him I assume although I know what the hell the browns a dorm right now and and it would not surprise me. I would find it plausible. If the browns would hire coach from a sport other than football given everything that's going on right now Cleveland so I don't know what they're doing when it comes the quarterback but. If Peyton Manning is in play you know there's always that cycle of teams at the bottom just churning with B of a bunch of ...
