Cool Re: QB Apocalypse: The Seventh Sign

If Jim Irsay is a man who speaks the truth, and its really NOT about the money, then there must be some kind of problem if the Colts let Manning walk. I've said before that risk tolerance is a part of the equation in Manning's return to football. Doctors are like regular people, their opinions vary. I suspect that is going to be the case (is the case) with PM's health, his ability to recover his passing skills, and his risk tolerance for another injury which could be debilitating. Perhaps Irsay just does not want to see PM go through all that as a Colt; perhaps he thinks its time for the Colts to move forward and not look back.

Against that backdrop, I just dont see how it is a good idea for Washington to give up a portion of the team's remaining salary cap space to bring in an aging, injured PM to play QB. Some seem to think we can get him for minimal salary with some incentive package attached. I really doubt that possibility. And even if it works, and PM earns a stack of incentive money, Redskins have still incurred the alternative costs. Money that could have been spent on WRs, safety, offensive linemen, retention of Fletcher at ILB, and a host of other needs.

The Manning plan is a bad one for the Redskins because it diverts us from the rebuilding effort already in motion! We should not stop mid-stream!

For once, I want the Redskins to be sensible, reasonable, measured, thoughtful, and SMART in their approach. Forget about Manning, go with the plan in motion. Stay the course; fans have endured two years of the process to rebuild the football team; keep moving forward with the good plan.

I know we need somebody to play QB; FA QBs are available; sign one. Draft a QB to develop, RGIII or Tannehill, or another of the Shanahans' choice. But dont revert to the pre-Shanahan days of frivolous, ill-advised FA signings. Stay strong and be smart; rebuild the football team the right way!

Does it really divert us, though? We aren't giving away picks for players, we are giving money, which we have in abundance right now - and will have more of soon once we start cutting players. If anything, I could make the case that it only increases the likelihood of continuing our rebuild. If we invest a ton of money in PM, we are handcuffed into acquiring cheaper players through the draft due to limited FA funds. I think (without sources to back this up) we will draft a young QB in the second round and let him sit and learn. The rebuild is still on so don't worry too much.

Re: QB Apocalypse: The Seventh Sign

Dont tell me what questions 2 and 3 are.

Just tell me if question 1 involves a dirty quarterback trent dilfer endlessly gushed about coming out of college (that we were rumored to want) and a famous 1960s singer with mafia ties.

Re: QB Apocalypse: The Seventh Sign

The one thing everyone says on TV is you have to let PM run his system, if that's true then I think it's a bad idea. Why you ask because most of the team knows MS/KS's system. IMO it's easier to teach 1 guy than 22 guys. When PM leaves/retires do we go back to MS/KS's system or stay with PM's system.

If we can't sign PM for a low salary, then yes, I do think it diverts us because of the multitude of needs that the Redskins have. There is a need for WRs, maybe a TE, a safety, an offensive lineman (or two), re-signing Fletcher, and probably a kick return specialist. I would hate to see money spent on PM that could otherwise be used for any of those purposes. Let's not drag out the rebuilding any longer than necessary by spending high on a high risk veteran QB. Just bad business IMHO.

LOL.



I think they ALL lie worse than politicians. In fact, his back and forth with Peyton this whole time is to make himself look good when he cuts Manning, but the reality of it is, he doesn't want to pay Peyton. Hell, remember before the CBA and he kept using that "OOoo...I'm going to make Peyton the highest paid player" but kept stalling and using the future CBA as an excuse. Bullshit. It's always about the money with them. Always will be.

Re: QB Apocalypse: The Seventh Sign

well i am growing impatient.... i think question 2 may have to do with what the Bears do with Cutler and question 3 has to do with what the cowboys do with romo.
