The home where Manning will be staying, as seen from Google Maps.

It truly is a small world.  Quarterback Peyton Manning, who signed with the Denver Broncos earlier in the offseason, is temporarily staying in Mike Shanahan‘s Cherry Hills Village home until he can find a permanent place to live in the Mile High City.

The house is considerably larger than the one Peyton stayed in when he visited the Broncos earlier in the year, when Manning stayed in wide receiver Brandon Stokley‘s son’s room.  The  35,000-square-foot mansion was finished in 2009, according to the Associated Press, about the same time Shanahan was fired as Denver’s head coach.

Though he’s no longer in Denver, Shanahan — now coaching the Washington Redskins — still has a presence in the area, with a home and restaurant located in Colorado.  Shanahan has maintained a good relationship with Manning and Broncos’ Vice President of Football Operations John Elway, who won two Super Bowls under Shanahan.

In March, Shanahan and his son, Kyle, hosted Manning to Shanny’s Denver restaurant during his free agency tour.  During the meal, according to SI’s Peter King, Elway sent a text message to Shanahan asking him to “put in a good word for us.”

The threesome of Shanahan, Elway and Manning are an interesting trio — one to be respected, with ten combined Super Bowl appearances among them.  They’re still helping each other out, despite Shanahan no longer coaching in Denver.  That’s what good friends do.

Good ‘ol Shanny being good ‘ol Shanny.  Having the the Broncos under the guidance of Pat Bowlen, Elway, John Fox, Jack Del Rio and Manning is like a dream come true.  Having Shanahan help out any way he can is like a dream come true with an old friend giving your quarterback a place to stay.  Wonderful dreams.

    Why are you posting pictures of my house? Shanny’s is down the street. Now I gotta be all paranoid…thanks!

  • Tim Lynch

    On a more serious note: I find that house disgusting in every sense of the word. I’m just a simple guy though….give me a simple house with a 1000 acres to play with and my life is perfect…

    I would guess the house looks better from ground-view than from an aerial shot of the roof…

    I was kind of under the impression that Elway and Shanahan did not get along all that well after Elway retired.

    Just a question to all BTer’s, but do you ever see Shanny back in the organization in some capacity? It was time for him to go, but he did a hell of a job while he was here.

    I’m serious about this btw. Anyone read “A Few Seconds of Panic”? Shanahan was known for bugging the crap out of Dove Valley.

    I never got the sense at all. I’ve heard stories of Elway, Shanahan, and Zimmerman riding their Harleys to a bar in Sedalia quite often after the players retired. I think Elway could never take a management position while Shanny was the coach due to it being a conflict of interest with their friendship and for the organization.

    From what I’ve read his garage has more sq footage than my house.

    I’d be more worried for the Giants that he’s trying to scoop conversations with Eli.
