We can't build a team with FA's, haven't we learned this in the past. Sign 2 FA's MAX that are coming in here to start from another team. 2 is the max, anything more than that and we'll look like the eagles of last year.

our problem in the past was using our cap space by trading draft picks for players and overpaying for over the hill veterans on the decline with character concerns. theres nothing wrong with signing free agents and we have to spend the cap room somehow. No one could complain if we signed manning and spent money on some solid o-linemen and on high character, solid, FA WRs like Wayne, Colston, Garcon.

how many big name free agents did the giants sign this offseason? 1 David Baas. How many did the eagles sign? 9, and where we're they? No where near the playoffs. Both those teams draft well.

Signing manning allows us time to develop our entire roster so by the time our young qb of the future is ready, weve got good talent around him.
I have to agree with this. Our options are very thin. I would like to bring in Saturday if Peyton signs. Monty would benefit greatly from him and we would have a solid back up at guard/center.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Basically Irsay is saying Manning can stay if he takes a huge pay cut.

Jim Irsay says team 'would love to have' QB Peyton Manning back

Just heard.

IF he Really does keep Peyton, which I don't see happening, then I feel like that helps our chances of getting Andrew Luck, because I don't see Luck just chilling there in Indy playing with/sitting behind an uncertain QB.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Irsay's been kind of saying that off and on for a while. He's going to do whatever so that if Peyton isn't a Colt it's not seen as Irsay ran him out of town

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

I was saying the Colts wouldn't let PM go but now I think it may just happen

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

I doubt PM and Luck will coexist on the same roster. PM is NOT going to BU and I am not sure about Luck. Irsay is an idiot and his......Dumbassness with his Twitter hand is rewarding him in the press.
As SS points out he is just trying to mend a few fences for the time when the man that built the Colts...leaves.

To me, if the plan was for Peyton to stay in Indy, we would have heard different things from both Peyton and Irsay in the last few weeks than we have heard. SS is correct - what we've heard is political jousting so that both sides can save face in a divorce.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

There was a time, I believe, when Irsay genuinely wanted Manning. But once Manning realized it was basically for Irsay to parade Manning around as a show pony for one final farewell tour, I think the relationship from both sides has soured. I mean maybe there's some hope for reconciliation but Manning believes he can still play and he wants to. Right now that's more likely to happen out of Indy

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Never thought I'd see the day that a team willing to keep Peyton Manning on it's roster was considered breaking news.

I don't think I've ever agreed more with you than this moment, Tripp.
