The Peyton Manning Effect

Part of keeping my mind off of the incredible span between now and the Giants' next game, is in focusing on the other things going on around the league.

How is Peyton Manning relevant to the Giants?

With the reports indicating more and more that he will not be playing for the Colts next season, I look around the league and find that the team that, more than anyone else, is a Peyton Manning away from Super Bowl contention is the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins are solid defensively, something that couldn't be said very often about the Colts. They ranked 13th in total yards despite their offense coughing the ball up 35 times (3rd highest in the league).

We'll never see Peyton Manning as a Jet (thankfully). But with Shanahan over in Washington, I think this could be a legitimate possibility.

The upside? We'll get a Manning Bowl twice a year.

Of course, the downside would be a much more competitive division opponent.

With any luck, he stays in the AFC.
