Broncos QB Peyton Manning on whether he will be coming back in 2015, to Dave Logan on 850 KOA:
"That's kind of what I've said all along. But I can't answer every what-if circumstance. What if you're not as healthy? What if certain coaches leave? I can't answer every what-if situation. I think I'll have to take some time to see how I feel, see how I feel physically."
On his mindset for the 2015 season:
"Yeah my mindset right now is just disappointment after today's game. Dave Logan asked me about it after the game, and like I said, I didn't have a great answer for him. So I'm disappointed. I kind of need to process this game and we'll meet tomorrow. I need to process this game.
"I just can't give that simple answer. I'm just processing it. I could not say that."
If Manning were to retire, it would completely change the fantasy landscape in Denver. He sounds to us like a player who will be back for another season, but needs some time to process the season and the loss.
