Either way Mannning is a band aid with a very short shelf life. 3 years tops if everything goes perfect.
wrong, completely disagree. Manning could play until he is 40 or 41, and that is 4 or 5 years. If anyone could do it, it is Peyton Manning.

And I cant wait to see the highlights of him tearing it up with a chip on his shoulder the size of Mt Everest.

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.
I offer that it is not an either/or. We could sign PM and draft RT, letting Tannehill learn behind Manning. Then we'd be set with high quality quarterbacking for years.

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

Pretty straight forward article. It's either Griffin III or Peyton Manning. I think the Redskins could win with either. But Mike Shanahan, after his failings with McNabb, his miscalculation with John Beck, and his irrational decision to go with Rex Grossman, has hurt the Redskins more than anything. This is his last chance to get it right. Maybe the sports writers are speaking for Daniel Snyder in saying that Shanahan will get canned if the Redskins don't start winning and soon. I doubt if he gets fired. He could very well be in Washington for all five years of his contract. But Mike Shanahan, must get it right this time around with his next major quarterback decision. Manning or RG3.

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?
And then I completely agree with this one.

I guess i wouldnt be too upset if we got RG3 or Manning, but RG3 does seem to be the shinier and sparkly newer toy.

The only way for the Redskins to get Tannehill is to reach for him at #6. Even if the Redskins do sign Manning in free agency, and then draft Tannehill, that wouldn't be such a bad move so I agree with you there. But there are other options than Tannehill at quarterback. Either of the QB draftees would benefit with a few years behind Manning and possibly Grossman if he is re-signed.

You would have to sell Manning on the move before hand if you were to sign him. Any team he goes to he's going to want those early picks to go towards potential first year starters.

My question is if we draft RGIII should we hire Steve Young as a QB consultant to help his transition into the NFL?

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

According to the draft gods (magazine)...

Ryan Tannehill-

Upside- Tannehill is one of the best athlete's in this QB class. A converted WR, he has excellent feet and balance, and he keeps his accuracy on the run. He has a quick release and a great feel for the subtleties of the position, looking off defenders and staying poised under pressure. He worked under former Green Bay Pakers coach Mike Sherman in a pro style offense.

Down Side- Arm strength is iffy. Tannehill has an awkward throwing motion and pushes the ball more than he flings it. Pass knockdowns aren't a big issue because of his size, but he doesn't stretch the field. Raw after only one full season as a QB.

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

Bottom Line- He probably need another year to get ready, but a potentially solid starter in a West Coast offense.

Wasn't it just a cpl/few months ago he was considering a law degree and putting pro football on hold? Really? Really?? It's pro friggin football and you wanna be the next Johnny Cochran...what fine chap you are indeed, sir!!!

I hope there isn't a $ limit on PM. Peyton's never struck me as an unreasonable guy, so he'll accept there's "consensus" idea what he's worth in the market. We should beat that number by a few hundred thousand. The real ? is whether Peyton wants to sign here i.e. does he believe this bidding team, right now, gives him the best opportunity to win right now? I'll be ecstatic if he dons the Burgundy and Gold!!!

I'll put it on a t-shirt: Peyton Manning: We're not ****in around anymore!!!

I tend to agree with you on your sentiments concerning RGIII. I get hot and cold on the idea.

I have loved the idea of PM in the B & G since the talk came out in early Feb that we were really looking at him. SS seems to think we are on his short list of teams he would sign with, and now I am just ecstatic that it may be a real possibility that we get to see #18. To me it is the much less risky decision.

Yep, I really hope it is here.

To those that say this is it for Shanny , then who would you really want to risk your coaching job with: Manning/Tannehill or another rookie OR RGIII and less young talent. If we don't trade up, I see the FO trading back and picking up some more pieces. If it's me, give me choice # 1.

This strategy will equal big wins and get this team relevant again for more than a year or two.
