not if he can still play, he is to competetive. a lot of great football players have changed teams at the end of there careers.

Not trashing his accomplishments, simply advocating that the skins actually use the draft and college free agents to build a winner. He actually was rejected that is why he isn't in Indy anymore.

lol I mean, I personally don't think he's going to retire either. But just thinking on what 12th said since he thinks it's a possibility.

Seems to me like any team that wants him would want to have him signed by the start of FA, or atleast a confident expectation of how his number will affect their cap status. And from PM's point of view, I think he will want his new team to be getting the pieces in place from start of FA. So it seems to me like this deal should be one that gets done before next Tuesday.

Against that, PM said he hasn't looked that way yet (which I truly doubt), and if that's the case, I am sure he is going to do a lot of diligent research to make sure he goes to the situation he wants.

I think cap limitations, and a new start, is a long way from rejecting PM. Sometimes situations just don't allow for the most preferred choice to occur.

But that's just semantics

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

It's incredible ..

The redskins may have a chance at signing one of the best QBs of all time and whom can still play at a playoff caliber level I'm assuming and we as fans say No to him??? It's Peyton Freaking Manning! This isn't Mcnabb or Brunell or Johnson its Manning. He comes to DC and we are a contender in the east day 1

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.
It doesn't matter if he's a reject or not. Being a reject does not mean he cannot play football; just a potential indicator that might not always be right.

And wanting the best is more important than a moral victory in which a QB flops, but hell we tried to "develop them" (see Ramsey and Campbell).

I don't think people are saying no cuz it's Manning, I think its because he's old and although not injury prone, when he does get injured, they're pretty bad.

I'd definitely like to see Manning here because the guy is a proven winner but I'm also torn because I'm ready for a franchise youth movement.

But Manning can only help us, not hurt us.

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.
Lumbar fusion is allot harder to recover from than the neck fusion. Because the neck does not carry the wieght that the lumbar does. Infact lumbar fusions have a much smaller success rate.

It can hurt us. If we go all in for winning now and stop really building our team we might have a successful year or two, but where would it put us in 5 years.

I never said we should stop building the team nor, if we got Manning, should we just built the team solely around him. There's obviously glaring issues that need to be addressed with or without Manning. But I'd hope if we did sign him, we'd still draft a QB of whom Manning could take under his wing and mentor the last 2-3 years of his career.

So when Manning did retire, the new young QB can step in, i.e. Favre and Rogers, or Brady and whoever was the 1st string at the time. lol
