I would assume he takes a backup position or asks for his release.

Our defense, albeit young, is much more talented than ANYTHING that has come out of Indy the past 10 years, and if Peyton can make Austin Collie and Pierre GarCon valid threats, why in the world couldnt he do that with say a Dwayne Bowe, Hankerson, Gaffney, both our tight ends and a pass catching and explosive young RB in Helu? The more I think of it, the more I like the idea of him here, grooming a Foles or Tannehill for 3 or 4 years. Who better to teach how to play the position to a young talented QB, than the best QB to ever play the game, motivated, and with a chip on his shoulder, ready to prove the doubters wrong.

Also, lets think of the situation this way. Washington won 5 games this past year with arguably, well, ok, with definitely the WORST QB play in the league. We beat the super bowl champs twice, all while the NFCE champion took the division with only 9 wins. You think that with an additional year in the system, our defense cannot perform better? You think that given a competent offense, the burden wouldn't be taken off the defense to keep us in games, and that wouldn't translate into a MUCH better squad than last year???? Peyton Manning would transform this team instantly, and we could contend for the title THIS year, all while perserving our youth, and grooming the squad the correct way, without giving draft picks to other teams.

In conclusion, all I am saying is this.

Peyton Manning, along with a smart draft and a couple solid free agency acquisitions will turn this team around alot faster than people might think possible. Other teams do it, why not the Skins with a healthy Peyton Manning? Im 99% sure that Peyton Manning will be healthy enough to play if he signs a deal with a team, I believe that he will make sure he is ready to go, as will his doctors and new team. He will only improve whatever team snags him, and hopefully the skins FO signs him, instantly giving us credibility at the position, and as a true contending team. I dunno if I can change any of the peoples thoughts around here regarding him, along with all of the PM negativity, but I think that even if we do sign him, the people that are doubting him will be very excited deep down inside, just knowing what he is capable of doing. His uncanny ability to make even average players play at their best, turning them into ferocious competitors, and just the way he leads his squad. He is definitely worth his weight in gold, or burgandy and gold for that matter.
What I like about the possibility of getting a healthy Peyton Manning is if the Colts release him, we get him without giving up valuable draft picks. The #6 pick then becomes a more flexible bargaining chip.
Trading down five or so spots for more picks in this deep draft makes sense. I keep hearing there will be 1st round talent near the top of the second round, like last year where we nabbed Jarvis Jenkins. He was one our best D-lineman in camp and preseason before he got hurt. He will be a bonus in 2012.
If we can get Tannehill and still fill our huge need at OL and CB with talented, young and inexpensive draft picks, this would be a banner offseason.

Holmgren has already said he was bringing in competition at the QB position. Bringing in Flynn doesn't change the status of McCoy, it would be competition for the starting position. Also, bringing in Flynn wouldn't make him the unquestioned starter, and that would probably be the case anywhere he went.

When I was evaluating the Jenkins pick, I noticed two things:
1) The Redskins may have been able to get Jenkins a round later
2) They did not pass up anyone else that could do what Jenkins could in order to take him

I kind of think that Weeden in the second round would be the same thing. The Redskins probably could get him in the third round. But what are they looking for? Someone who fits both what Mike and Kyle like in a QB? Someone with advanced mechanics? A guy who will not limit the offense with physical limitations? Brandon Weeden offers all that. The only thing he doesn't offer is a good value pick at a need position.

I think that FANS should be skeptical of Weeden because fans want the best long-term solution possible. Weeden won't even be the best value pick at QB on the board whenever he is drafted. Kellen Moore and Kirk Cousins have MUCH better long term projections, in my estimation. But why on God's Green Earth would the Shanahans care who the QB of the Redskins is in 2016? They aren't going to base ANY of their draft decisions on long-term projection, which is why Weeden makes more sense for them than for another team.
A lot of fans act like the guy is 38 years old. He can play until his late 30's. He could easily have a 8-10 year career if he's good enough. Everyone needs to remember that Weeden isn't a running back. If the front office thinks he's good enough then being 29 shouldn't really matter. I'd have no problem taking him in the 2nd round.

Still age is a big difference for a QB-starved team. Plus, with him there is no "let's develop him" because of his age. If you want him as a back up, then age is not an issue. If you want him as a starter, then he better start from day one.

He's probably more pro ready than anyone besides Luck.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

My gut tells me that the simplest way for us to end up with RGIII is for the Browns to get Flynn. However by the same token I've been seeing the Browns looking at trading up 2 spots for a QB to be a waste of time where as the Dolphins and Seahawks might look at trading up with a nothing to loose attitude and thereby easily outbid us for the number 2 pick.

Best case scenario, the Dolphins get Manning, the Browns get Flynn, and the Seahawks fall in love with a random QB from the second or third tier. Seahawks actually might make me more uneasy then any of the other contenders seeing as how they are very unpredictable on draft day under Pete Carroll. They go back and fourth between making good picks and making head scratchers.

Re: Eight QBs and Where The Latest Rumors Have Them Going

I just wanted to drop this in here for all the folks so excited about Luck and/or RGIII. Oden was the biggest thing since sliced bread when he was coming out.

Look at his career:

Tannehill in play for Miami?

UPDATE: Gary Horton of Scouts, Inc. checked in on the Dolphins' offseason QB situation in a column Monday (find his thoughts at the bottom of the post).

---

Having hired Ryan Tannehill's former head coach as its new offensive coordinator, the Miami Dolphins stand uniquely positioned to make a decision on whether or not he's the right choice to lead them into the future at QB, as Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel explored in a post this weekend. Ultimately, Kelly concludes that it's too early in the process to say whether the Dolphins would consider him with their first-rounder -- either No. 8 or No. 9, depending on a coin flip with the Carolina Panthers -- but that Tannehill can't be ruled out as an option.

A lot can change between now and the draft, given that teams will be signing veteran free agents in the interim. For the Dolphins, the potential addition of such a player -- be it Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn -- would likely mean that they would not target a QB with their first-rounder. It's using that as a hypothetical possibility that Mel Kiper, Jr. sent a player at another position to Miami at No. 9 in his most recent mock draft:

Theres obviously no such thing as a sure thing in the draft. However what would we really giving up? We have two playoff appearences and one playoff victory in the last decade and have picked in the top 15 more times then I care to count. Look at all the teams picking in the bottom of the first round. Almost all of those teams have QB's that they can rely on to win games.

I'll give up 3 potential starters for a game changing QB any day of the week. Especially one with off the chart intangibles and physical ability.

And keep in mind another top 10 draft pick type year means that theres a good chance Shanahan could be fired which means a ton of roster turnover (think of the Broncos roster after Shanahan left). So in the end a lot of this building through the draft would end up being an exercise in futility.

We keep ordering new parts for the same broken down car. It's time to get a new car.

I could live with Weeden. If you discount his age he's easily the third best QB in the draft. To me he's the closest thing you'll find to an Andy Dalton in this years draft.

WEEEEEEDEN! OKUNGGGGGGGGGGGGG!
