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

I think that landing either Peyton or RGIII would earn Shanny another year after the upcoming one. If we don't get either of them, then he might be in trouble after another losing season.

While numerous teams are scrambling to land PM, I think the Skins should make their move with St. Louis and get the deal for the #2 pick done, to be official at the start of the league year. And, for goodness sake, don't let sending a second round pick to St. Louis this year stand in the way.

If the Skins believe that RGIII can be a top QB in the NFL for 10 years, they need to get the deal done ASAP. In the long run, what is the significance of giving up one second round pick compared to getting RGIII? Answer: It's inconsequential.

Landing RGIII at the start of FA would help the Skins with Free Agents, as well. Maybe not quite as much as landing PM would, but it would help.

My message to the Skins: Forget about PM. Sneak in under the radar and get RGIII. Don't wrangle about one pick. Just git-r-done.

Unless the deal is contingent upon a healthy RG3 being available and the Rams having a better idea of who and what to expect at 6 I don't see why either team would make a deal other then to make us feel better for the next month and three quarters. Also keep in mind Flynn might become a Brown leaving the bidding for RG3 between us, Kansas City, and Seattle.

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

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUu

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter that, in the "estimation of many people around the league," the Dolphins are losing steam in the sweepstakes for free agent Peyton Manning.

Without providing detail, Schefter cited the same reasons that drove away Jim Harbaugh and Jeff Fisher. "I think there are certain circumstances that prevented certain people from choosing Miami," Schefter said. "And I think that those factors will come into play with Peyton Manning." Added Schefter, "I think their chances right now are dwindling some. ... Miami doesn't seem to have an advantage that it did a few days ago, in the estimation of many people around the league."

Miami has terrible karma after the Lebron/Bosh fiasco and the Hurricane recruiting scandal. Plus they've already got two World Series, CF National Championships (worthless), and an NBA title over the past few decades.

Good karma will be hard to come by. Maybe a deal with the devil? :FIREdevil

Manning going anywhere but Miami doesn't help our chance of getting RG3. Although I think everything is in the hands of the Browns.

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

He should play in Arizona as far as I'm concerned. That seems like a great fit.

I wonder if Elway will show up to tonight's dinner wearing his two Super Bowl rings and be like "Oh...you only have one ring. I'm so sorry"

In South Fl, their FO and Ownership group are not considered.....ridiculous. I doubt they can be counted on to provide adequate weapons and protection to interest PM.....

Yup. We've lost our title as the most dysfunctional FO to the Dolphins.

Then he gets in real close and quiet but starts talking a 1,000 words a minute with the hard sale.

"See I know what it's like. Your stupid brother who's only endorsement is some watch company now has two rings. TWO! But I can change that. I got to the playoffs with Tim Tebow. TEBOW! You were a better passer the day after your 4th surgery. Just IMAGINE what I could do with you. Think abut it."

*Does I'm watching you/seeing eye to eye gesture*

"Enjoy your evening gentlemen"

*Repeats eye to eye gesture*
