Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

sometimes you guys kill me, Why would anyone say No to a player like PM? Even if we sign him we can draft a QB, It's crazy to think some would rather not sign Manning (a future HOF) who is still pretty damn good and Healthy, yes I think he's healthy enough to play

I do think he would help this team get better fast but I'm not sure he can get them to the playoffs.
And you may very well be correct, but as I said before I am just going by what I have heard in the rumor mill. All my posts are based on the rumor that connects PM to the Redskins. I am not saying (and I hope no one does) that Manning to DC is guaranteed. Since there is a rumor that this is a possible destination for him, then I think it would be a good idea.

And the lost by only 7 points argument is so old, it means squat really. That is a stat disillusion folks hold onto like their pacifier when they are upset and can not understand why this team blows.
Your 100% correct because our team sucks. Please go find one that does not suck and be happy. In the mean time I'll stay here and be optimistic and think this team might, just might get its shit together and make it. Have a wonderful Valentines Day.

It was a joke. Do you really think I had to sit there and think about whether or not the Clippers are eligible for the SB?

I just dont see him wanting to go with a team that is so far away. PM knows he has maybe 3 years left at best and needs to go to a team that is only a QB away from winning it all. He wants to win next year not in a few years after multiple holes get filled.

Would I like to see him in DC, yes I would. Do I think he will sign here, no I dont.
All of what I said aside. Our major problem was on offense is QB and WR. With top talent we could make the play offs. It would be nice to continue building the OL. On defense I feel we need a FS to give our CB better support. Otherwise I like our defense. I don't think they played as bad as people want to think they did.

3rd year is usually the charm in most teams that change their coaching staff. If not charm they make major strides. I'm excited for next year but we definitely need a QB and to not mortgage the future of this team for any one player.

Just a week ago it was reported via (Mike Lombardi) Manning still can't fully grip the ball or throw against his body. Receivers said his passes lacked velocity and zip, and you think this guy is ready to play football?

No way, at least not this season.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

I consider Jake Q as up to date on all things Manning as anyone out there.

Because those of us fans who use common sense understand PM or no PM the team can still draft whoever they want as QB because PM does not effect draft picks.

But it doesn't matter... we suck. (<sarcasm)

Then Poillon came out saying that was all BS and that he has witnessed PM making all the throws but no farther then 25yrds.

Believe what everyone wants.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

15 yds, 25 yds...whatever, that's a long ways from 40 yds and 50 yds on a rope.

I just don't see it as a good fit for either party that is just my opinion. I am NOT trying to get everyone pissed off I am just saying how I feel.
when you get down to it, his only other options are:

Minnesota (no cap room, no proven coach, no idea whats going to happen to the franchise over the next couple years)

Miami (brand new coach who has no credentials worth mentioning - hes not going there)

arizona (they honestly cant afford him)

san francisco (they claim to be committed to smith plus they are on the west coast which is not mannings preference)

houston (hardly any cap room, would build ill-will to fans by going to a division rival, and theyve gone on record saying theyre not interested)

manning is a better fit than most people realize. as others have pointed out, washington would attract manning for alot of reasons - we're a big market team on the east coast, which is where manning reportedly wants to play. manning is a competitor so the opportunity to play his brother twice a year will be a big plus for him (not the negative many say). weve got a solid coaching staff and a coach who has proven succcess. shanahan gave elway tons of freedom. the only reason he's developed a reputation for putting so much emphasis on his system is because he hasnt had a QB worth anything in recent years.

The only real competition i see is from the jets or from a team that would shock almost everyone...

new orleans. his dad played there. its in a dome. theyre a contender already. and they have been noteably uninterested in resigning brees. I wouldnt bet on Manning ending up there, but we shouldnt dismiss it. Its a natural fit and would seem to be the perfect place for manning to close out his career.
