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

I was thinking that as big as the price was to get RG3, we could trade with Cleveland right now and get their three number 1's and a number two. Maybe even more, because they will be more than desperate if Miami does not get Manning. Then Flynn becomes a long shot. I am not suggesting we do it, I am just pointing out that right now, we probably could get more thatn we gave for it. So its really not that bad of a deal.

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

I am predicting Arizona, with Denver coming in second.

Miami will get left out, will get Matt Flynn.


Deciding factors:

*Arizona's climate for an aging player vs. Denver's winters
*Dome vs. Mile High Stadium in the winter
*Better chance to succeed with Cards than other teams
*Larry Fitzgerald vs. nobody in Denver and Marshall in Miami..Fitzgerald wins
*Good, young D in Arizona

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

I'm gonna throw a wild prediction out there and guess that Peyton, after deciding all his potential suitors suck, will retire and go into the broadcast booth.

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

Despite my name on here, I am currently in Colorado (and the locals LOVE the skins because of MS) and the Denver fanbase is pretty chill so I would love to see Manning come here. Tebow is a joke!
NFL.com news: Report: Broncos could deal Tebow if Manning signs on

Also, I found this article on the NFL website: NFL.com news: Breaking down every team's potential interest in Peyton Manning

I have a feeling it was pre St. Louis trade, but it is still intriguing. The last part talks about trading with the Texans so they can get Peyton. I like Shaub, and he would be way more of an asset than Grossman for working with RG3 on our offense. Plus, Shaub could jump right in and give RG3 a redshirt season if needed. The only problem is, if Shaub sucks our coach is unemployed because our fans want to win NOW. Its probably a stretch too because what could we give to get Shaub since we have given up so much to get the 2nd pick? Its probably nothing, but its for sure something to think about.

Ha...

I'd take Tebow over Grossman or Beck as our backup in a heartbeat. Emphasis on backup.
Tebow? The guy is a fullback, H-back, tight end, linebacker but not a quarterback. He has a dismal 46 % completion percentage. He's NOT a real quarterback.

Exactly. I'm saying we do not need him as a real QB.

If RG3 goes down, our first franchise QB in 20 years, maybe since Theismann if you don't consider Rypien a franchise QB...the season is over anyway. We won't have a replacement QB that can play at his level.

I'd rather lose having fun with Tebow than suffer through Rex again.

Plus Tebow is a HUGE distraction that our rookie QB, who's facing enough pressure as is, doesn't need. And when I say huge distraction I don't mean like Tebow going out of his way to get in front of the cameras but he does draw media attention like moths to a flame.

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

I can think of quite a few QB's - Henne, Orton, Hasselbeck (if Tenn. signs Manning) who would make a better #2 than Tebow.

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

Maybe it would take away from the distractions for RG3...the cameras would be following Tebow and leaving RG3 alone, or at least giving him smaller mobs.


RG3 is going to have a media circus...if a tiny market like Charlotte can create a giant media storm around Cam Newton, just wait until the nation's capital has a QB just as talented, if not more talented. DC has been starving for a QB like Griffin.

I hope he adjusts to the attention quickly, because even with winning the Heisman Trophy, he hasn't seen anything yet,

Definitely not denying that. Just throwing out there, I'd be fine with Tebow...and it could be fun to watch him and RG3 on the field together.


Hey, it's the offseason on the Warpath. Sanity is on vacation.

Rex Grossman is a better #2 than Tebow.
