He was, before his neck injury, playing at as high a level as any quarterback in the league. He got hurt and missed a season. Now, it appears he'll be available again. And if he shows teams he can throw the ball the way he did in 2010, he's a smart short-term investment for a team that needs a quarterback answer now and for the future."

"He was, before his neck injury..." That isn't very optimistic sounding.

Missing an entire season is pretty significant. Even if he has completely recovered from the surgery, the atrophy of not working out at a high level for a whole season means he is going to take a long time to build back up to the strength he once had.

If he shows teams he can throw the ball the way he did in 2010. He most likely won't IMO; at least not that quickly. Even if they neck surgery is fully healed, the nerves have to regenerate and that could mean they have not by the beginning of the upcoming season.

Manning will be 36 on Friday, which means by the time he builds back up to his former strength he simply may never be able to play at as high a level as before due to his age. I can foresee him working back up to playing shape this year and playing in 2013 for a season and maybe stretching it to 2014 at the latest.

Thoughts? I'd love to hear them as I know many of you have been critical of my negative view towards Peyton coming to the Skins.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Let me put it like this. If my options are:

Luck

RG3

Manning + 2nd tier draft pick aka Tannehill, Cousins, etc.

orrrrrrr

2nd tier FA qb/2nd tier draft pick single or combo

Give me anything from the first tier above. Second tier = disappointing.

I agree. Which is much of the reason why I can't stand him. Last seasons, "this is our house" speech that NBC decided to televise was beyond obnoxious...

Interesting. I always got the impression on game days that Tony was a leader.

Your speeches must have been the sole reason for that impressive win streak for sure!
