If Peyton is Healing I wouldn't be surpised if the Colt's pay him the bonus and put the number 1 pick up for sale. Restock the whole team by selling Luck.

I would be surprised if that pick goes anywhere.

Unless someone offers you 10 first round picks why do you even consider trading away the chance to draft the best and safest QB prospect of this generation? If anyone should appreciate the fact that QB's don't grow on trees it should be this fan base.

Think of it this way. Who has been a better team over the last decade? The Ravens before Joe Flacco or the Colts with Peyton Manning? You know why the Steeelers dominated the AFC North for so many years? Because they had a freaking QB while the Ravens were using retreads like Steve McNair and late round developmental guys (read:Troy Smith). The type of QB's that a lot of fans here would have picked for us in the same situation.

While the Colts may have been better during the regular season, the Ravens have the same amount of hardware as the Colts over this time frame. Furthermore the Ravens can lose there best player and not turn into a 2-14 team.

People tend to belive the media hype so much. Luck is not Peyton. No Matter how you spin it, if you can pull a Montana/Young type of transition for your team you better do it.
Not saying that they will.

But why can't the Colts take the opportunity to fleace us for picks, re-tool around
Peyton, draft tannehill to be his understudy and fill the other many holes in their roster that they will have this year?

Luck can still end up being a bust. Just sayin

Colts aren't going to pay him $28M without even being able to see him throw.

They're clearly ready to move on, new coach, new GM, and soon to be new QB.

IMO the best RUMOR to come out now would be the colts looking to trade out of 1st, want to talk about St. lou making a trade right now.

Either way Mannning is a band aid with a very short shelf life. 3 years tops if everything goes perfect.
Your right, but lets drink from the half full glass and think that since he's better then anyone even at 60% then add in the fact we only lost some of our games by 7 points or less he would easily get us into the play offs. However part of our problem was not QB play but instead WR and TE play with dropped balls and tipped balls which were INT. So if we can bring in a couple really good WR's, and PM, this team should do a lot better in it's own division with trying to make the playoffs.

Now we all know the we should settle for nothing less then SB but getting to the playoffs would go a long way in keeping MS/Allen and staff and the consistancy this organization needs to get better.

I hope to see all but since Luck will not be an option then I can pass. Since RGIII is either not an option or totally the option I might pass on him also. I'm more interested in seeing the 2nd tier QB's and how their interview turns out.

The thing I've learned over the past few years is that every season is different, well except for us in terms of the end result but thats another story. Still the point is we can't really expect those 7 point games to be there next year. It's a nice footnote to fall back on but I mean this time last year I thought Ryan Torain was going to continue to be a beast when healthy, I was dead wrong. I also thought a healthy Landry would dominate, wrong again. I also never imagined the 49ers doing what they did.

I will say this. I think with RG3 the running game alone will be much improved. I'm a broken record on this now but when you have a QB with RG3's running ability running bootlegs off handoffs the cutback lanes break wide open.

On top of that as Matty pointed out we just need a QB in the passing game that won't be good for two turnovers a game. RG3 at the very least can be that as a rookie and possibly more I mean this is a guy that after 3 games had more TD's then incompletions.

I believe that with Griffin at QB we can be a viable playoff contender in our first year. I mean it was after all a successful running game and strong defense that allowed the Falcons to get to the playoffs with Matt Ryan (whose line the previous year gave up more sacks then any team in the league) so why not us?

Re: QB Combo Possibilities: Which Do You Want (QB Rumors: Verse 10)

In the event that Washington is unable to trade up, I would say that throwing a boat load of dough to Peyton Manning would be better than drafting Ryan Tannehill. The Redskins could sign Manning, and then draft Brandon Weeden or Nick Foles or Kirk Cousins to be Manning's successor. Then in the draft, we could focus on building the team accordingly. We could use the first round draft choice on a right tackle, or maybe Justin Blackmon.

I still like the idea of drafting Robert Griffin III, but if we are unable to move up, then Peyton Manning wouldn't be such a bad signing. Hopefully, Kyle Shanahan will be intelligent enough to tweak the offense to how Manning plays quarterback instead of trying to micro manage him into being a Shanahan robot, which in turn would cause conflict.

Here we go


Unfortunately the commentary is in something that ain't ingles but the point remains the same. This guy is real. And for those who say TCU wasn't that great of a defense keep in mind they were #1 from 2008 to 2010. They dropped to 32nd this year in part because of this game where Griffin dominated them.

Hopefully Kyle will be mature enough to acknowledge his football acumen is just a fraction of Manning's and he'll shut up, sit back and try to learn all that he can. This is, of course, a 2nd best alternative to the scenario where Kyle's not part of any scenario whatsoever. My intuition, and I would put money on this, is Manning's biggest hesitation about coming here is Kyle's presence.
