QB-PEYTON MANNING (on five offensive players making the Pro Bowl)

"It's a great honor for all of those guys, and real happy, obviously, for Reggie Wayne.  I felt like this was a long time coming, felt like he should have made it the past couple of years.  So real happy for him and anytime you have two of your offensive linemen on it (Tarik Glenn and Jeff Saturday), that makes you feel good about your protection.  And Marvin is pretty much a mainstay over there.  They just keep Marvin's locker plate over there in Hawaii."

QB-PEYTON MANNING (on having two receivers like Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne)

"I've never taken it for granted, just how good of players all of our receivers are, but just how special Marvin and Reggie are.  It's their work ethic.  It's their consistency.  They don't have good games in Week 2 and then don't show up again until Week 5.  It's every single day in practice, every single week.  It makes the quarterback's job a lot easier when you have complete trust in those guys.  They're always in the exact place.  They always make the catch.  It's just not something you take for granted.  I just feel real fortunate to call those guys teammates."

QB-PEYTON MANNING (on it being tough playing Houston the second time)

"I think the second time around in any division game is tough.  Obviously, we've lost our other two second matchups against the Jaguars and the Titans.  We know it will be a tough challenge this week against Houston.  We've always had close games down there and we expect it to be the same type of atmosphere, the same type of game this week.  It's toward the end of the season and everybody's playing hard and hopefully we can make enough plays to win."

QB-PEYTON MANNING (on how much Houston's defense has improved since last game)

"It's a new system.  We played them in Week 2, so it was just their second week of the new system.  As you would expect, like any players under a new coaching system, you're going to get more comfortable each week.  The defense is really playing well.  The score last weekend against New England was extremely misleading.  Their offense turned the ball over and put them in some tough field position situations.  Their defense is really playing well.  They have the leading tackler in the NFL (DeMeco Ryans) and have some talent all over the field, so we'll have our work cut out for us."
