DENVER - The question was simple: Are you coming back next year?As was the case with almost everything Sunday, Peyton Manning didnt have much of an answer. Or at least not the ones Broncos fans were looking for.A few minutes after Denvers 24-13 loss to Indianapolis in the AFC divisional playoffs, the 38-year-old quarterback was noncommittal about returning for the 2015 season, which would be his fourth in the Mile High City.Asked in his postgame news conference where his mindset is for next season, Manning reiterated what he had said earlier to Broncos play-by-play voice Dave Logan: I didnt have a great answer for him.Asked again, directly, if he could say Im coming back, Manning didnt budge, saying he was more focused on the disappointment of the loss to his former team.I cant give a simple answer without processing it, he said. I cant say that. I could not say that.A marked contrast from last year at the Super Bowl, when Manning committed to coming back for 2014, or as recently as two weeks ago, when he said he certainly planned on being back for 2015 if the Broncos would have him.Until the middle of November, that never looked as if it was in doubt.Then, came the 22-7 loss to the Rams that motivated the Broncos to revamp their entire offence, turning a unit that broke NFL records for scoring and passing in 2013 into a grind-it-out operation.Around then, questions percolated about the health of the 17th-year quarterback. In the aftermath of his 26-for-46, 211-yard performance against his former team — his second home playoff loss in the AFC divisional round in three seasons in Denver — Manning was forthcoming about a thigh bruise he suffered in a Dec. 14 game at San Diego. Yes, it lingered, but it wasnt bad enough to keep him out of this one.Nothing more to it than that, he said. And I ... felt good with it coming into the day.If hes not injured, that leaves only one obvious explanation for the deterioration of his game.Hes getting old. Fast.Stats tell part of the story. Since the Rams game, his quarterback rating has been 84.6, about 13 points below his career average.Pictures do, too. Even for a quarterback who cant run, it was hard watching him roll out in the third quarter, then pass up the run and instead throw an incompletion despite a 20-yard gap between him and any defender on a third-and-5.Didnt play well enough today and didnt play well enough consistently in the second half of the season, especially in the games we lost, Manning said.His unwillingness to commit made coach John Foxs same stance behind the same podium a few minutes earlier seem more understandable.Asked about a pregame report that he could be available if the Broncos suffered a loss Sunday, Fox hardly shot it down.I dont make those decisions, he said. I dont control that. My intentions are to be a Denver Bronco and have been since I got here.It should make Monday, and Tuesday and beyond interesting at Broncos headquarters, where executive vice-president John Elway will be meeting with everyone, figuring out whether he needs to go to the Plan B that he readily admitted he didnt have when he threw all his chips in with Manning in the 2012 off-season.The goal was Super Bowl titles. Instead, Manning is 2-3 in the playoffs with Denver.Because of uncertainty about his comeback from multiple neck surgeries, Manning didnt receive a signing bonus when he came to Denver, so the cost of him leaving would be negligible and would free up the $38 million he stands to make over the next two seasons.Still, Elway spent $60 million in guaranteed money last off-season on long-term contracts to upgrade his defence, which he said was the missing piece after Denvers 43-8 loss to the Seahawks last season in the Super Bowl.The idea — one Elway reiterated to Manning at midseason when things started going south — was that the quarterback shouldnt have to do it all himself.But the Broncos cant do it when hes not playing well, either. And so, its time for some soul searching, which for Manning will begin Monday.It may not be pretty.Ive always taken a pretty accurate look and fair evaluation of myself, he said. I think Im as honest with myself as anybody else is and probably as critical of myself as anybody else is.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Thomas Muller Jersey . After Mariota was pushed around by Stanford on Thursday, finishing 20/34 with 250 yards and two touchdowns in Oregons Title hope-crushing defeat, hes going to need a poor performance or two from the remaining frontrunners to have a shot at the most coveted individual trophy in college sports. Felix Gotze Jersey .C. - Nick Merkley and Damon Severson each had a goal and two assists as the Kelowna Rockets downed the visiting Seattle Thunderbirds 6-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League playoff action. http://www.bayernmunichfcstore.com/auth ... ch-jersey/.

Patty Mills had 20 points, Tim Duncan had 11 points and 13 rebounds in limited action, and San Antonio rolled to a 110-82 victory over Milwaukee that kept the Bucks winless in the new year. Christian Fruchtl Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have activated defenceman Joni Pitkanen from injured reserve. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Robinson Cano delivered the biggest hit of the day for the Seattle Mariners, but not before a perfectly executed drag bunt set up things against one of the best pitchers in baseball. James Jones went 3 for 4, including a bunt single that wound up in the middle of three converging players and loaded the bases for Cano, whose third-inning, opposite-field double drove in two runs in Mondays 3-0 victory over David Price and the sputtering Tampa Bay Rays. "Were a team that has to do anything to win a game," Cano said. "We dont have three or four or five guys thatll hit 30 home runs, so weve got to play the little game, do the little things." Five Seattle pitchers combined on a five-hitter, blanking the punchless Rays for the second straight days. The Mariners extended their scoreless streak to 19 innings and won for the eighth time in nine games. "Our last seven or eight starts have been pretty darn good. Our starters have given us everything weve asked them and probably a little bit more," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "With that our bullpen is even better." The Rays, whove made the playoffs four or the past six seasons, have lost 13 of 14 and are saddled with the worst record in the major leagues at 24-41. The last time they were 17 games under .500 was the end of 2007, the final year they were known as the Devil Rays. "Right now, were the worst team. I dont anticipate finishing like that ... but right now, weve earned that position," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "Do I believe we can turn this around? Absolutely," he said. "But right now, if youre a baseball fan watching us, and you look at everything, you have to consider us the worst team." Canos big hit came on an 0-2 pitch during a three-run third inning against Price (4-6), who struck out 10 in eight innings. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner has dropped three straight decisions and hasnt won in nine starts since beating Minnesota on April 22. "It just goes to show you how good this guy is," McClendon said of Cano. "Against one of the toughest lefties in baseball and down like that. ... That was a huge hit for us..ddddddddddddquot; Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez didnt allow a run, but failed to get through the fifth inning to qualify for the victory. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed four hits and walked five in 4 2/3 innings. Joe Beimel (1-1) retired the only two batters he faced to get the victory, and Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 20 opportunities. The Rays were shut out for the AL-high ninth time overall. Seattle finished a 6-1 road trip. The Mariners won three straight over Tampa Bay after dropping the opener of the four-game series. Price allowed three runs and seven hits and walked one. He has the best strikeout to walk ratio in baseball, but has also yielded a major league-leading 105 hits 99 2/3 innings. The Rays stranded seven runners and were 0 for 5 with men in scoring position through four innings against Ramirez, who entered the game with a 6.82 ERA. The frustration continued in the fifth, when Ramirez gave up a two-out double to James Loney and walked Ben Zobrist before McClendon turned to his bullpen. Beimel fanned pinch-hitter Jerry Sands, ending the threat and eliciting smattering of groans and boos from the crowd of 10,400 at Tropicana Field. "At some point, we have to get our bats alive," Maddon said. "The effort is wonderful. The work is great," the manager added. "The hits arent there." NOTES: Struggling Grant Balfour is out as the Rays closer. Maddon said the team instead will close games by committee. ... Mariners 1B Justin Smoak (sore left leg) and OF Michael Saunders (sore right shoulder) were out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game. ... Rays rookie right-hander Jake Odorizzi (2-6) will go against St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright (8-3) in the opener of a two-game interleague series Tuesday night. Odorizzi grew up 35 minutes from St. Louis and called his start against the Cardinals a "special occasion." ... In a matchup of former teammates with Rakuten of Japans Pacific League, Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (4-2) and Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (9-1) will start in the opener of a three-game series in Seattle.
