if he's healthy and can give us even 2 years hell yes...i want to know what it feels like to have a franchise qb again before i die...
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
With regards to Manning I want us to do the exact opposite of whatever our team doctors advise....
Hell....Take an elite OT/RG with the first pick and then just trade the rest of the draft away for next year or for certain players. JUST PROTECT MANNING AND WE ARE GOLDEN.
Long/ Incognito/ Pouncey/ (RG/ RT your choice of our draft pick and Jerry). Can do a solid job of protecting him. Most of the teams we play next year don't really have dominate D's (except 49ers). These guys can get it done and protect him.
if mannings healthy he'll protect himself with how quickly the ball is out of his hand...the guy rarely even gets his uni dirty he sees the field with such clarity so fast...
healthy...no brainer...but there will be plenty of competition for his services...
whoever signs manning if he does in fact hit the streets and is billed healthy enough to play i'm betting there's an out clause in that contract after one year for the team...i just don't think anyone will throw multiple years guaranteed big damn dollars at a qb who's what 35 and coming off a serious potentially career ending neck surgery and missed the year prior...that would take some big cahonas and a gm who has major job security in the near future with his owner...
so yeah there's a financial risk and investment for the first year that you must be willing to take on but i'm sure there will be a get out of jail free card during the 2013 offseason should it go belly up...otherwise like i said major risk...that said in todays game with how much your fortunes rest on the qb position could i see someone putting all their cards on the table and going all in in order to obtain his services and giving multiple years guaranteed money in the deal...never say never...
No thanks, why would we want a franchise QB when we have M.Moore. If we just give Matt the best oline and a dominant run game, surround him with play makers at wide out and TE, then make sure we have the greatest defense ever and we'll be fine. That's much easier to do then sign Manning; he'll cost to much!
Patterson and Moore
L.Joseph DT - give him the offer that Solai would have received from us
1/ Z.Martin OT/RG
2/ C.Hyde RB
Healthy Manning = Super Bowl.
He's never had a physically dominant receiver like Marshall. Then we have arguably the best pass catching running back in Reggie Bush. We were in so many of the games we lost. If we had a healthy Manning THIS year, we'd be a 10+ win team.
Is this a rhetorical question?
