    The Bounty controversy is moving to Washington and could affect Manning's decision

    Peyton Manning when released has some decisions to make. If the decision came down to Washington vs Miami (which many analysts have said it might), I think there is a greater chance now compared to a week ago that Manning will pick Miami over Washington. If the dolphins choose to pursue Manning, this Bounty scandal comes at the perfect time. Here are two reasons why.

    Manning's Neck Injury likely originated from a Washington Redskins hit according to his then coach Tony Dungy (link to story below). While the Bounty program that existed in Washington seems to have been ended by Williams successor,This might have an impact on Manning's possible decision to play in Washington.

    The NFL is now moving the Bounty probe to the redskins (link below) and they are not out of the water as far as possible draft pick penalty's. Manning may be less inclined to want to go to a team with a brewing controversy on its hands.

    Is it a healthy place for Manning to rehab in the city that likely caused his Injury? Maybe Peyton doesn't care about any of this, but if he does at all it bodes well for Miami's chances at signing him. At least compared to the Redskins.

    What do you guys think?

    I really have no idea why anyone thinks Peyton will choose Washington. He will not want to be in Eli's division, and the Redskins are terrible. If he doesn't come here, he'll go to the Cards, the Niners, the Titans. No chance he's a Redskin.

    I'm sure he would rather not be in Eli's division. But when it comes down to it, it's going to be a business decision, not a sentimental one.

    Just win Phin baby!

    I think Peyton would rather play in the AFC, with the chance of only playing Eli in the big game. Miami is always warm which is better for his issues. My wife has had major ankle surgery and the cold makes it painful whereas in the summer it's alot less. He lives down there, Miami has some weapons for him to play with. And the reception this guy will get if he decides to signs here will assure him that he made the right decision.

    Give it up for the 3 time defending FL class 5A State Champions (2004-2005-2006) and Two time Defending National Champion (2005-2006) and a FL State record for most Reg season wins in a row (60) the Lakeland Dreadnaughts..

    I love how the redskins are horrible yet we are just a qb away. We had one more win than Washington and are probably close to the same distance from superbowl, I have no clue where manning may go but to act like he would not go to wash but would come to us based on talent is slightly absurd

    I never said we are "just a qb away." It's part of the reason that I think it'd be absurd to trade the house for RG3. In any case, I do think we are a much better team than Washington, but, even assuming we are dead even, that just proves my point. Unlike Washington, we are not in the NFC East, and, unlike Washington, we are not in D.C. Most importantly, unlike Washington, we don't have Shanahan -- the control freak of all control freaks. So, assuming Manning is picking between the 'Skins and the 'Fins, why on earth would he choose the 'Skins?

    In any case, ultimately I agree with you. I have no idea where Manning will go. I will bet money it's not Washington, though.
