    True, but he also had weapons to work with. Weapons he coached up since they came into the league, who were on the same page with him and could run that offense on the fly in their sleep. He won't have that in Miami. He's going to be working with brand new guys and maybe even a brand new offense. He's been out of the game for a year and not fully recovered. It's not like you're getting Peyton Manning. You're getting Peyton Manning Lite.
    I totally agree with you.

    I was thinking more historically, if Manning had been drafted by a different team.

    Peyton Manning now is a huge question mark.
    blah blah blah

I repeat if Peyton Manning is cleared to play and is healthy he would make dolphins an instant contender to win a superbowl. You go get your Flynn because you are all excellent scouts off of two stinkin games.

    They are smart because they agree with you and we are stupid because we dont. Stopp being a pu_sy. You are the one who started the thread and you are going to leave because we dont agree with you. It is a mixed field here just like it is in philly. Some people here want him and some dont, it is the same there, you cannot tell me 100% of the people in Philly want to let go of Vick and get Manning.

    Go be a Philly fan

    Flynn is young, Peyton is old, he has 2-3 years left in him, IF hes healthy, one big hit and he could be done.
    We need a QB of the future. Plus Peyton cost way to much.

    I think that Manning is one of those rare guys who would have been great anywhere, but it certainly helped that he had coaches who trusted him and basically let him run the offense. As I heard it, he was the guy who made decisions like whether or not to go for it on 4th down.
    Oh no, we suck again!

    Anyone with one big hit could be done. Football is a violent sport unless your a franchise quarteback like Brady or Manning and you can barely touch them or get penalized.

    I understand a big hit can end anyone, but more likely to end Mannings than lets say Flynn?

    Remember a guy named Dan? Dan was a TD machine and while not a runner, he could move around and avoid the rush a little, until.... he tore his Achilles tendon. From that point on he began a decline due to not being able to really push off on that leg, sure he was as good as most of the other QB's but the Marino of old when he would look at a DB and tell him he was coming to his man and there was not a damn thing he could do about it. It led to sore arms and a decreased velocity. Manning's injury has/ will affect his arm strength. He's also 36 years old so you might get 2 good years... and you might not, but you will have to pay out the @$$ for his services, like Flynn, but FLynn is much younger and still has something to prove, he's hungry for a big payday and a ring.

    If he is a fully healthy and functional Peyton Manning, we sign him in a heart beat, a 4 year deal.
    The problem is that he hasn't been to Miami for a physical and tryout.
    Once all that happens, all of the doubts about him will be confirmed or cast aside.
