I'll second that. If you don't mind I'm going to start using that now on the boards.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Ok so now on the NFL network PManning is so bad off and can't throw a ball at all that, and it's being reported by the NFL Network, that Irsay is expected to ask PManning to "Restructure" his contract so they can keep him on the team.

Now, I could care less if we get him or if we don't. I've said it before I'd prefer any QB (Vet) that is not going to cost the Skins draft picks and is an upgrade from Grossman/Beck. My choice is Flynn, he's young, healthy, has not taken too many hits, has been in the NFL a few yrs, has not been let go by several teams and moved around a lot which speaks volumes to GB liked him and wanted to keep him or they would have dumped him for another QB. But who knows maybe GB resigns him also? Probably not.

But... my point is apparently the Colts don't think PM is done either or they wouldn't be trying to resign him. That's for you folks who said PM is done because the Colts are moving on from him.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Flynn is a system QB though. I doubt he'd work here.

I think the reason you havent heard anything out of Indy is because the Super Bowl was there and the NFL didnt want anything to overshadow that event. Now twith the combine coming up again I dont think the NFL will want anything to overshadow that. This is the week I really expected to hear something because there are no big NFL events in Indy.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

Flynn's 6 tds against Detroit was a fluke. Go back and watch the tape.

My point was that we HAVE heard things from the Colts but not the things that we would hear if Peyton were likely to stay there.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

I'm not totally sure about this, so I'm trying to find out (Canuck you out there?), but I'm not even sure the Colts can restructure his contract without releasing him.

Since Manning signed his new contract within this league year I'm pretty sure he has to wait until the league year is over before a new contract can be signed. But that might be a fine distinction between renegotiate and restructure

But if that is the case, then what are they going to do? Pay him the $28M bonus and then restructure? That wouldn't make sense. They'd be more likely to release him and then enter the fray with everyone else in trying to sign him

You can't pick both as Rich Tandler has pointed out

Great offseason discussion!
Can't imagine the look on your faces when the redskins go ahead with a third choice.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

So you're not hearing anything new from the Indi or Manning camps?

I had a hard time believing that Manning and Indi would actually split. It seemed Indi. was committed to Manning to the end of his career. Guess not. I am with SS and Lotus - if PM was staying a Colt, we would be hearing almost nothing or a much more mutual "Of course PM is staying". I haven't heard much more from PM other than "I'd like to stay a Colt" with the implication he won't be.

The pundits seem to have universally assumed Manning is out the door. Is there anyone saying he will be staying in Indi?

I believe it will end up being McCoy and Tannenhill but voted RGIII because of the options it is the better. I think RGIII is a pipe dream but it would be great. I really don't want Manning.

I think you are correct, the Colts cannot restructure the contract, they either have to pay him the 28 mil and restructure or release him.
