There will come a day, a day not too far in the future, when neither Peyton Manning nor Tom Brady is playing in the NFL. As sad as you are, pity the poor networks who can't trot out Brady-Manning XXIV yet again. But more to the point: what does this mean for their respective franchises? How do you plan for the future when your present is just too good to let go? Denver and New England have some big decisions to work through over the next few seasons, and we kick around the possibilities in our first segment.
From there, it's off to the AFC West, which is going to be just brutal this year. Sure, the Broncos will roll, but how about the Chargers? The Chiefs? The Raiders, who might just have the toughest schedule in NFL history? We continue our march through the divisions with a thought for the teams about to be demolished.
