7) Cardinals

For Manning this has to be about winning another Championship, this is not about money or location. Manning has enough money. Manning is such a huge competitor, his brother has two rings. Peyton wants another.
Redskins have a ton of cap space and some good pieces in place. Skins have a chance. Small chance, but still a chance.
I agree wholeheartedly...although Skins and Jets could easily swap positions.

If he does play? Still thinking he retires?

This is a different situation. This injury is to a nerve/nerves that go into his tricep, which is the major muscle to his throwing arm. Plus we have way too many holes here. Yeah we'll go the FA route but as we know that just doesn't work. See Philly and past Redskins teams. Manning will make us better, but we're still not a SB team w/ him under center.
Ok point taken on Montana. However there are other players who have gotten the same surgery and continued playing. The QB position is one of the most protected positions. And I'll repeat if the doctors thought there was any danger he would not be talked about right now cause it would read PM forced to retire.

I understand the nerve and bis arm issue, also know his doctors have said it could take weeks or months before progress is seen but when it starts it could heal fast ss in most cases and we know his has started or he would most likely not be throwing so well.



I'm confused how PM hinders this team from filling other holes? All this would do is assure us Grossman would not be coming back. Unless you guys want Grossman back? No matter what they do in the draft MS and KS will have a Vet QB on this team and I'd prefer it be PM with all his knowledge vs. the others.

Why can't skins fans want to cultivate their own superstar? It seems that they always want someone elses reject. Manning is a reject at this point.
I agree with your point but I'd hardly call him a reject. A reject is Rex Grossman.

I don't think he knows exactly what he's going to do at this very moment. I can imagine everything's like a fog right now. That was a very emotional presser.

But that's not to say he won't get second thoughts. I'm not saying he would retire and then come back. But think about he just spent 14 years with the same team and maybe he'd like to go out as a Colt.
