Peyton: No Brady retirement age for me

FOXBORO -- Peyton Manning and Tom Brady will meet for the 13th time in their great rivalry on Sunday, and for the first time Manning will be wearing a Broncos uniform. Brady holds a 6-3 regular season edge and a 2-1 advantage in the playoffs. Manning, 36, is coming off four surgeries to stabilize the nerves in his neck. Manning said in a conference call with Patriots beat reporters Wednesday that he does not have an idea of how much longer he'll be playing, pointing out that the 35-year-old Brady has indicated that he'd like to play until he's 40. 

"I know Tom has said before how long he wants to play," Manning said. "I don't have that number in mind quite like he does but I still have a passion for it. I still enjoy the preparation, the work of it, the offseason, the Mondays, the Tuesdays, the game-planning. I still enjoy that. Until I stop having a passion for that, until I can no longer produce or be effective, that's when I stop...

Bobby V: 'I thought Farrell already had a job'
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine talked about his future and whether he thinks it will be in Boston in this season's final appearance on The Big Show on Wednesday.

Valentine, who has one more year remaining on his contract, said he does not know whether the Sox will bring him back for next season. 

"I really don't," Valentine said. "It all depends what they're looking for. People have to make decisions, and God bless them. It's not going to be an easy job no matter who's at the helm."

Blue Jays manager John Farrell has long been rumored to replace Valentine, though the former Boston pitching coach is still under contract with Toronto. Rumored friction between Farrell and Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos has led to speculation that the manager could be attainable. 

"John Farrell. Wow, I thought he already had a job," Valentine said when Farrell was brought up. "Maybe there will be a...

Brady: 'Always looked up' to Peyton

FOXBORO -- For the first time in their legendary rivalry, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be facing Peyton Manning in a game not involving the Colts. Manning comes to Foxboro on Sunday with the 2-2 Broncos while Brady also leads his 2-2 team into action. Brady leads the all-time series between the two, 8-4, including 2-1 in the postseason.

"He's a friend of mine, so we don't talk much during the season, but I think he's someone that I've always looked up to and admired, and I respect the way he plays the position, and the way he works, the way he leads," Brady said Wednesday. "He's been a phenomenal player. We played against him for a long time against the Colts, it seemed like every year. You see a lot of those games, and obviously I've learned a lot from him."

Another familiar face will be snapping the ball to Manning as former Patriot Dan Koppen is the starting center for the Broncos.

"He's one my best pals,...

Mankins returns, Gronk among 5 missing

FOXBORO -- Logan Mankins returned to Patriots practice in shorts and shells on the damp grass practice fields behind Gillette Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. It was the first practice for the starting left guard since Sept. 21. Mankins missed all of last week with a hip injury and did not travel with the team to Buffalo for Sunday's win over the Bills. 

Also on hand for the start of practice was rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of Sunday's game. 

Missing at the start of Wednesday's practice were Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Michael Hoomanawanui, Steve Gregory and Julian Edelman.

Gronkowski suffered a hip injury late last week but played. He also spoke on Wednesday to reporters, a sign that the injury likely is not significant. The Patriots began their practice routine in advance of Peyton Manning and the Broncos on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
