Re: 2012 QB Prospects (Part 2)

The team that would benefit the most if Manning was traded, would be the 49ers. Alex Smith would be a FA, they have a young QB in the wings that Manning could mentor and are a playoff team.

Either them or the Jets would be the ideal place for Manning. I don't think he will be traded at this point. My guess is that Luck and Manning will be forced to coexist for a year or two.

Plus why would Manning want to come here? If he was traded, he's gonna want to go to a team ready to contend right now.
36 years old or not, the Colts will want a high price in trade. I'm not sure what team would make that move because the price will be so steep. I'm with you, I don't see Manning coming here.

But they can work out numbers to make it work. No one is paying him that amount of money. Not even Indy.

Because the Skiins are rebuilding, going after Peyton Manning would be the wrong move for this team. We are not going to be competing for a title for at least two more seasons, if nearly everything goes well. Not to mention that Peyton is a very big injury risk which the Skins cannot afford to take.

As for the Free Agent pickups. these were a different type of FAs for the Skins. They were younger mid-level FA's - not silver bullets but good players who filled needs - who should be around when the team has been rebuilt. To rebuild, we need good young players who were drafted and good young players who were acquired through Free Agency.

Our designated Franchise QB will almost certainly be drafted.
Maybe I am. But with a group of solid vet wr's...Stallworth, Moss and Gafney, plus Hank coming back, a real good TE, revamp the line and bring in a fa or two and with an above average defense and a healthy Manning this team could contend. It certainly would be a conterder in the division. Hell...right now this team plays competitive games in the division with Rex Grossman.

All I'm saying is the FO office wants to win now. Rebuilding and taking 3-4 years isn't their thing.

After the whole situation and reaction to the McNabb trade I can't even fathom what would happen if we got Manning. I think the world would explode. And at very least, my head...

We ARE rebuilding, that doesn't mean they don't want to "win now." Of course they do, but other than the mcnabb deal the new regime has shown it will not do so at any cost. Compare our moves to Philly's this year.

This article in today's WP explains it well & gives some #s to back it up. Boswell even calls BS on Allen saying "the future is now."

We'll see what happens. I hope they keep building through the draft. I actually HATE the free agent route cause it's proven that it doesn't really work. I hope they draft RG3, build an offense around him and go from there.

I didn't catch the whole Convo but Greeny said Manning could work with the Shanahans and Golic agreed but they didn't come out and say yes they think he'll end up there

I don't know where to point to suggest rebuilding is taking place. Shanahan says, and you can tell me if you think he is being dishonest, that the young players who are playing now are not necessarily doing so because they should be, but because there is no one else healthy enough to play.

Maybe there is some motive causing him to lie about the state of the organization. But with the general manager not believing in rebuilding, the head coach doesn't believe in rebuilding, and the owner not sure what the heck the difference is anyway, I would suggest that rebuilding is a figment of the fans imagination.

There is nothing fundamentally different with this organization now vs. five years ago. There are different decision-makers, being that Bruce Allen is not Vinny Cerrato, and Mike Shanahan is not Joe Gibbs, but whether or not the decisions are consistently better than in the Snyder-Cerrato-Gibbs days is not something I think I have enough evidence to pass an opinion on. I think it looks pretty similar.

The front office is pretty much the same guys as five years ago. The only thing different is a couple of people at the top who hold the authority. The fact that the scouting department is still marginalized is identical between the regimes.

Well look, first off they were responding to Joe Theismann's comments where JT said on ESPN 980's Sports Fix that he thought Peyton Manning would be a terrible fit here.

Greenberg said he (Greenberg) thinks it could be a place with Mike and Kyle where Peyton could find himself. Golic said he didn't think he will leave Indy but that he, unlike Theismann, doesn't think that he'd have a problem adjusting to a different system such as Shanahan's. Where as Theismann and I believe Greenberg think that the Redskins would have to adjust their system.

But anyway, the conversation was more about could Peyton Manning successfully transition to another team.

Re: 2012 QB Prospects (Part 2)

I don't think you can call what they're doing a 'rebuild'.
And at the same time its not quite win now.
Its somewhere in the nebulous confusion that occurs when your HC is your GM, two positions that are often at cross purposes.
