I see the Titans connection but I think they are also the least likely to win a championship. They run their offense through chris johnson and the front office thing sounds enticing but Manning will probably get the same offer from other destinations when he is finally done.He did play college ball there but where is he from originally or were does he want to end up eventually. It could be Tenn, but not just because he played college there...
I think the Titans are more likely to win than the Broncos. They have talented players, but had a young coaching staff that made a lot of mistakes last year. They have a better O-line, with 3 linemen that have made the Pro Bowl. They have great weapons in Kenny Britt and Jared Cook. Of course, Chris Johnson too. Last year they really tried to be more of a passing team, but Hassleback really held them back.
Also, the connection here isn't just that he played college here, although even that is bigger than you might think. Most fans here are UT fans first, Titans fans second. Keep in mind that Tennessee didn't even have an NFL team when Manning played here. So he is almost a God figure here. He will have fans no matter where he goes, but nowhere will treat him quite like Tennessee will. Also, his wife is from memphis and still has family here.
