There's no way anyone can claim that DC isn't considered one of the busiest media towns in the nation, up there with NYC and LA.

Charlotte is small potatoes.



The QB of the Redskins is always a big headline-grabber, even with bad and mediocre QBs. Look how much attention McNabb drew from the national media when he came to town. It's going be that times infinity when RG3 suits up.
This is very weird sports media market. It's football and quarterback specific, as you've pointed out. For a team that has been a perennial loser over the past 15-20 years, we probably garner as much national attention as any team in the NFL. In part, because of the team's rich legacy and also due to Dan Snyder's splurging during free agency.

By the way, think I got my info mixed up. He's meeting the Titans in Houston. Not the Texans

Probably the best thing for that franchise but Gene Smith (Jags GM) apparently hates the idea of Tebow being his QB more then Elway.

i don't see how tim tebow solves any team's qb problem. his mechanics are slop and i doubt he's going to master the mental side of the position, having scored 22 on the wonderlic

Manning not thrilled with Miami...

Chris Wesseling ‏ @ChrisWesseling
NFLN's @JeffDarlington reported earlier Manning was "underwhelmed with the structure in place" with the Dolphins.

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

I think the reason Manning doesn't want to go to miami is cause he doesn't want to hear Brandon Marshall shouting in his ear to throw him the ball every other play.

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

Still can't believe it might be Denver

As for Miami, here's something I told the mods last week

"Have heard Manning is using Miami and isn't serious about playing there"

Interesting, TBH besides the weather Denver truly does give him a good chance to win quickly and ride off into the Sunset with another ring.

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

I tend to think Manning should bide his time a bit here, maybe even put the "tour" on hold and go back to rehabing/training for upcoming workouts. What if the Niners and Smith struggle to find common ground? What if the Texans decide they want to seriously pursue the Lombardi? Those two teams are instant contenders with a healthy Peyton. Denver? I dunno...

I doubt it. Seems more like a courtesy then anything else. If Manning really wanted to use Miami he would sell it like a play action fake and actually visit the team instead of having them come to him in Indy.

I mean this is Peyton Manning we're talking about, he can practically name his own price.

Although I am sure that having a team come with the idea that they will do "whatever it takes" to get Manning will help in the negotiations. I am sure Manning can name his price, but he probably would just say, well Miami is offering this...

Still the more I think about it, the more that I feel Miami is not the place that is perfect for Manning. I am sure the league would love to see Manning vs. Brady twice a year. But I am thinking that Manning may look for the most convenient route to the playoffs, and that may be either Denver or Zona.
