It's official: The Indianapolis Colts are parting ways with quarterback Peyton Manning. At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Colts owner Jim Irsay -- who fought off tears as Manning watched over his right shoulder -- announced that the team was releasing the franchise icon and retiring Manning's No. 18 jersey. As soon as the Colts make it official with the league office, Manning will become an unrestricted free agent. Since he is being released, teams don't have to wait until the start of free agency on March 13 to pursue him. When news leaked Tuesday night that the goodbye news conference would be held in Indianapolis, national football writers began speculating where Manning might land.

The peril of high expectations, in sports as in politics, was emphatically driven home Sunday to millions who watched the Denver Broncos' and Peyton Manning's performance in the Super Bowl. The premature anointment of Mr. Manning as the greatest quarterback of all time went a-glimmering as he and his teammates were humiliated by the Seattle Seahawks in a 43-8 pasting. Not only were Mr. Manning fans disappointed, but relatively neutral rooters were as well. They were led to expect one of the closest Super Bowls in the event's 48-year history, between the top-rated offensive and defensive teams in the National Football League.

It's over, America. The breaking news alerts, the Twitter speculation wars, the aerial shots of the big guy being whisked from private jet to late-model, tinted-window SUV, the grainy photos of him meeting with the rich-guy NFL owner du jour -- all of it comes to a merciful end. Yes, wonderful news: Peyton Manning has found a job. He'll quarterback the Denver Broncos next year. (That thumping sound you just heard was Tim Tebow being tossed out the back door of the Broncos' complex like the morning's trash.)

In about a four hour span Sunday, the Denver Broncos went from offensive juggernaut to overmatched and overwhelmed against a swarming Seattle Seahawks defense that is among the best in recent memory. The Broncos are better than the team that barely showed up for the Super Bowl. They just picked the worst possible time to play their worst four quarters of the season. The stars had seemed to be aligned for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl and for quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL's Most Valuable Player, to further bolster his legacy.

Could be career-ender Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times It's going to be a long road back for Peyton Manning, and although I wouldn't bet against him returning, I wouldn't be shocked if this procedure ultimately caused him to call it a career. He's not going to be like Brett Favre, who did the retirement rumba for so long. Manning's standards are too high; he won't accept being two-thirds the player he once was. Fighter pilots are permanently grounded by this type of surgery, because the risk is too high of serious injuries from whiplash-type events if they eject from their planes.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors analyze the Denver Broncos' reported acquisition of former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Jeff Zrebiec (Ravens/NFL reporter): The Denver Broncos got Peyton Manning's first visit and they seemed to be the most logical landing spot for the quarterback all along. They have a young group of wide receivers, a strong defense and one of the better quarterbacks in NFL history as a top executive. Is there any doubt that the Broncos' visit to Baltimore will be a prime-time game?

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco might have sealed his fame, future and fortune here Saturday night. In a game where the Ravens were heavy underdogs - and against a team that rarely lost at Sports Authority Field at Mile High - Flacco out-performed future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning and led the Ravens to a 38-35 double-overtime victory in the AFC divisional playoffs. The Ravens opted not to extend Flacco's contract before the start of the regular season, and he was so inconsistent during the regular season that few could predict what his future would be with the Ravens heading into the postseason.

After nearly two weeks of being trailed by the pigskin paparazzi, Peyton Manning has picked a team. According to ESPN, Manning has informed teams that he plans to join the Denver Broncos. Unless there is an unexpected snag in negotiations, Manning will be Denver's starting quarterback in 2012. The 2012 schedule won't be released until next month, but we do know the Ravens' opponents for the upcoming season. And at some point, Manning and the Broncos will come to M&T Bank Stadium.

When the Seattle Seahawks' Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for a touchdown, all the anxious moments turned toward Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. There was fear for his health. With the Seahawks holding a 29-0 lead at that point, the only way for Denver to rally was to have Manning dropping back almost every play, and this could have turned into a Seattle feeding frenzy. It didn't. So as the celebrations started on the field and Seattle won its first championship with a 43-8 win over Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII, Manning jogged a little before shaking hands with some Seahawks.

Pay attention, Pete Carroll. A Seahawks coach has your game plan vs. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning figured out -- he's just not on the Seattle staff. South River Seahawks football coach Lance Clelland said that if he were coaching this weekend, his focus would be on forcing Manning and the Broncos offense out of their comfort zone. "The Seattle Seahawks certainly have a big challenge defensively," Clelland said Friday. "I am sure they would agree that when facing such a great QB and historic passing offense, the plan is to slow them down and disrupt Denver's offensive rhythm and timing more than anything else.

It shouldn't surprise you that most NFL players would rather have Tom Brady or Peyton Manning as their quarterback -- not Joe Flacco -- with two minutes left in the Super Bowl and a championship on the line. Flacco has steered the Ravens into the end zone during clutch drives in some big games such as the AFC divisional round win last winter, but Brady and Manning are among the NFL's all-time leaders in comeback drives. But it was a little astonishing that Flacco got no love in a recent ESPN poll asking players that question . In an anonymous player survey conducted by ESPN during the season, 128 of the 320 players polled said they wanted Brady, a three-time champion with the New England Patriots, in the final minutes of a Super Bowl.

Let's just stipulate that - for Baltimore football fans - nothing that happens over the next week is going to compare with last year's gloam in the Dome, but that doesn't mean anyone will be able to ignore the buildup to Super Sunday. There is little question that the best two teams won the right to play for the Lombardi Trophy, and there is even littler doubt that this Super Bowl will get the full New York treatment even if neither team is from anywhere near the Big Apple and the MetLife Stadium is actually in New Jersey.

At Saturday's Baltimore Running Festival, he ran the last leg of the relay race wearing a navy blue herringbone suit, tattersall shirt, blue-and-pink bowtie and suede shoes. In the end, his footwear did him in. "I'm going to have some bad blisters down there," said Martin, 41, of Rodgers Forge. "But I might wear this outfit in the half-marathon next year.

INDIANAPOLIS -- If you listened carefully at the RCA Dome last Saturday, a distinct sound of discord could be heard after Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning threw the last of his three interceptions against the Kansas City Chiefs. To paraphrase one of Manning's many televisions commercials, they weren't saying, "Moooooooooovers." Manning, who in recent years has become the face of the NFL as much for his self-deprecating pitchman persona as for his regular-season dominance, would have been vilified had the Colts lost to the Chiefs in their AFC wild-card playoff game.
