    IF we land Manning...

    Do you think other free agents might take pay cuts to play with him? Or would it be better to work with the team we have that way we don't turn into another Redskins.

    I see Brandon restructuring. He's the one that benefits the most

    If we land Manning, we won't need many others. He could very easily be the difference maker with the players we already have...and a HUGE upgrade at RT of course.

    alot of what you hear is not really the truth. Its just the media. An incentive laden contract is doable. They just have to draft well the next couple of years. tall order. but Ireland can do it.

    If we get Manning, I see us trading down a couple times in this draft and picking up new players. We will get at least two OL this year. Bank on it.

    I agree 100%. Trade down still get an RT and pick up the Aggies QB in the late 1st or second round. I am pumped with the possibility of Manning for us to win NOW but I still think we need to look long term and still draft a QB. We dont want to be stuck in the same boat 3-4 years down the line. Although Matt Moore will benefit the most from playing behind Manning and he is still young.
    What da hell ya looking at!? Yes I'm a Miami Dolphins fan and damn proud of it!!!!!

    If we get manning, first thing we need to do is make sure he's protected. So either draft some decent OL or get some in FA. Gotta protect him if willing to take that risk. Then get a couple of other key spots filled and we are set to make a serious run at it. We eventually are going to need to address the QB spot long-term, but we can develop someone behind Peyton.

    yes, yes, and yes. I think we definitely need to think like this but not just because we need to get our Right side Of OL. Its going to be also because Jake Long could be gone next year if his latest intimations come true. Manning's incentives will kick in for due money possibly and Long may be too expensive to keep. Must get a RT who also played LT in college.
