Fans try to sway Manning

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The name Peyton Manning has Cardinal fans dreaming about the quarterback donning a red jersey and throwing winning passes all the way to a championship, and they are doing all they can to make that dream a reality.

"It is the perfect spot for someone like Peyton Manning, for example, to get away. You know he does not want to stay in a dorm, come on he is Peyton Manning," said Steve Sasman, who has offered to give up his Flagstaff cabin to the Manning family if Peyton decided to join Cardinal training camp.

"It has a king size bed and it is fully adjustable with massage, and we know that he has had his neck issues, right, so this is going to come in handy," said  Sasman.

Add that offer to a billboard asking the NLF star to sleep "here by" a local mattress company and fans are petitioning Manning as much as the teams are.

"If they really want to win I think we are going to do everything we can to shore up the one position that has the greatest hold which is obviously quarterback," said Donald Shields, a football fan.

At Half Moon Sports Grill in Phoenix, Peyton Manning is the topic of debate. While Cardinals fans are backing a deal, some call it more than a long shot.
