a seventh rounder for Clausen? Even that seems too high. I hope we only use him as a backup to whoever we pick in the draft... We do intend to still draft a top (or second) teir QB, right?

I personally feel that Washington, Miami, New York, and San Fran are very likely destinations. Even as Redskins fans, we have to at least consider that Snyder has thought about what it would take to get Manning.

There are a lot of positives for him here if he can play one or two more years. The skins could become instant superbowl contenders while still letting a young QB learn from the games best.
The problem is what ever happened to the statement that P.Manning takes a hit the wrong way he might be paralized? that came from somewhere... his doctor, the team, the media. How much truth was in that statement?

I guess I'm saying will P.Manning even be able to play? Will a doctor clear him to play? trust me I'd love to have his brain here with the Skins as either a QB or coach but after the early reports we have not heard anything about where his status is and it might be he doesn't get cleared and he has to hang up the cleats. So if we could get him cheap then I hope the Skins pick him up but I'd bet the Colts would want to get something for him and will keep his status a secret just to get a reward.

Can the coaching change for the Skins be that they are firing the QB coach and bringing in P.Manning as our QB coach? I'd be thrilled.

Yes i agree with you on all points. I firmly 100% believe that Peyton will never, ever, be full health again. I also beleive that he will attempt a comeback, but it will end badly, with him either not passing a team physical, or him getting out on the field and just looking like a shell of what he was. Worst case scenario is that he suffers another neck injury.

My statement earlier was saying that "IF", and it's a big IF. IF Peyton is able to physically play and be what he was before, he would be huge here to hold us down at QB for a year or so until a young gun QB is ready to take over.

I personally want to see Peyton go the safe route and go into coaching, but the media pressure with this thing right now is unbelievable. I never even beleived we would ever be talking about the Colts trading Manning, but knowing the Redskins, and knowing Snyder, it at least has to be mentioned that he could end up here.

I'm not talking about Clausen as the main guy. That's not being considered

Manning might be beginning his coaching career at this rate. He only recently was declared healthy enough for another surgery back in early December. Not workouts but another surgery. And words like neck fusion don't exactly inspire confidence. Personally Manning should quit while he's ahead. He has the mind to continue his football life as a coach.

That's what he is. He couldn't hold off Matt Moore when he was starting in Carolina, and didn't see the field this season. He's a backup at this point for sure. He's young with upside, so I wouldn't mind him on the roster. I think if we draft a QB, keep Rex, and add a 3rd guy like Clausen, it's ideal.

Re: The Big Rumor: If The Colts Take Luck, Then Manning Could Be...

Its not hard for me to believe that Clausen could perform well in this offense and challenge for the starting job if invited to camp.
Look, if we don't draft a QB we're talking about beating out Rex Grossman. The same Rex Grossman that barely beat out a 3rd string QB with no mini-camp or OTAs last year.
Clausen is easily more physically talented then Rex Grossman.
I'm not fickle enough to believe the book of Clausen's career is written after 14 starts and I didn't even like him very much as a prospect coming out.

Heck, we should have gone after him last year.

Actually, Sanchez' numbers this year in terms of QB rating and turnovers and number of wins all regressed from last year. He did not improve this year.

Whatever...

Are you saying that if the Redskins get Peyton Manning and keep the core of this roster as it is, they would become superbowl contenders in 2012?

If so, may I suggest that whatever you are ingesting into your bloodstream at the moment has to be illegal...

You think there's a correlation between Shottenheimer leaving and Sanchez having a bad year (regressing). With the OL the Jets have they should be dominating, the play calling has been the shits and the WR's and RB's are way over rated. It was time for BS to go. I think Sanchez will have a rebirth despite what all the experts say.
