    I agree with NorFlaFin that Manning is too proud to come back unless he believes he is healthy enough to play. It's not going to be about the money for him it will be about proving to himself (and proving others wrong) that he can still play.

    Manning is not the long term solution obviously but it does buy us some time since we're unlikely to be in the mix for Luck/RG3.

    If he can stay healthy and still play at a high level then I would be all for it. At this point nobody knows though. Often by the time aging veterans get to Miami they're a shell of their former selves. The guys making the decision would be privy to more information then we are. If they feel he can play then go for it.

    Just win Phin baby!

    Do you seriously think the Jets are going to win the next 2 super bowls? really? You would sign a player just to prevent another team from having him? Sounds like a really smart idea.

    I dont think this is a wise idea at all.

    60% manning is still better then moore and flynn is a complete unknown unless you consider that one game getting carried by his receivers.

    Its a QB league

    w/o manning-hell no
    w/manning a good possibility
    its not a matter of preventing him from going to the jets. manning has been linked to 3 teams for possible suitors if he leaves (us ,jets, seahawks). its a matter of signing him if available. that would make us a valid contender for the championship.i would much rather us roll the dice than the jets.

    Agreed. I would rather have Philbin and his new OC sit down and review film of all these QB's and make an intelligent rational decision as to whether they can build an effective offense around them. In addition, we need to stop taking other teams castaways (EXPENSIVE!!) and build with a young stud potential franchise QB.
