I read a stat one time that said something like no matter what the question, roughly 84% of people will claim that they are "above average", and only 16% will claim below. Doesn't matter what the question is, if you get a large enough sample then it will always be around 84/16 split instead of 50/50.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

I wonder what the results would be if people were asked if they were in the 85th percentile in something.

16% must have low self-esteem.

Now I'm cheering for Peyton to sign with Tenn and Tenn to trade Locker to Seattle for pick #12 overall

if you have Peyton i'm pretty sure you have to keep a young QB just in case Peyton gets hurt. I guess they could retain Hasselbeck just in case but keeping Locker makes a lot more sense. Locker wasn't that close to being good last season.

Smartest play by Tenn's GM would be keep Locker until trade deadline and trade him if Peyton looks great.

Nor in Texas. I heard NYC pays federal, state and local income taxes. High property taxes here though.

There's no chance the Titans trade Locker in the next year considering where they drafted him and with Manning coming off a year where he didn't play. Britt showed elite ability last year before the injury.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

So with the final 4 for Peyton I guess it comes down to whomever offers the most money? Peyton might choose one over the other if it is within a million or so, but it's always about the money.

Sick break for Locker. Now no one will remember him as a bust.

Titans sign Hutchinson at OG - should increase the chances of PM going there a few % points

I still haven't seen a peep about what kind of contract he wants or what teams will give him. I could see that being a ...small sticking point
