Huard cuts the 32 teams down to seven, and ultimately argues the best landing spot for Manning is Seattle because of Pete Carroll and his commitment to winning, Tom Cable and the continuation of the improvement along the offensive line, a young and talented roster filled with emerging, Pro Bowl-type players, a strong home-field advantage and owner Paul Allen’s commitment to putting forth the necessary financial resources to winning a championship.ESPN’s Mike Sando
