Smoot do you have a feeling of what our price limit is on a Manning contract? Or asked differently, why wouldn't we be willing to outspend other teams?

Are you asking if I have a feeling of how much we're going to offer him?

Because of the risk involved with Manning, GM Bruce Allen and head coach Mike Shanahan should pass on him. If they do sign him, then they should draft a Tannehill, Weeden, or Foles to learn from Manning and develop. Since Grossman doesn't have a contract and Crompton and Beck does, I'd favor Crompton backing up Manning since Beck isn't a quality back up let alone a quality starter. I hope I'm understood now.

3 specialists have said PM is 100% healed and can take a hit. There is no bad neck. You could argue a QB with nerve damage but it appears he is recovering well from that too as seen on the video. So what QB are you refering to with a bad neck that the Skins are supposedly interested in?

Was Demarcus Ware breathing down his neck? No. Everyone looks great when there's no pass rush. Oh..and how do you figure he's going to hold up with our shaky o-line? Sorry but I just can't invest in a 36 year old qb who sat out a year cause he had to have multiple neck procedures that sucked the life out of his arm. Too risky. Again, why can't we just go out and get our own guy? Build around him for the next 12-15 years...like all the other winning organizations do.

re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

That video is inconclusive. Also, not ONCE during the presser did Manning say he's healthy.

Let's be real here, if Manning was even close to 100%, there's no presser today and the Colts are talking about Manning under center, Luck behind him, to start the season.

re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Teams that don't have a established QB ranked by my speculation of Peyton's priority/preference:

o Arizona
o Jets
o Miami
o Redskins
o Seattle
oBrowns

Teams with an established QB ranked by my speculation of Peyton's priority/preference:

o Houston
o 49ers
o KC

Healthy or not I don't think there was a chance they were going to bring him back. They made it clear when they hired a new GM and head coach that they were cleaning house and moving on. Plus you don't draft a guy like Luck and sit him for 2-3 years.

'Xactly. Once Dungy, Caldwell and Polian were gone, the owner effectively rid the team of all senior staff with any loyalty to Peyton Manning.

Why does it have to be one or the other? What if it's Manning and Tannehill or Cousins, still feel the same way? Wouldn't that address going for it now while building for the next decade?

Yes, I missed the word "unless" in your original post which is key to your post
