Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

Possible strongs signs Miami may have an upper hand:

http://www.nypost.com/Page/Uuid/745a...b-66eb68c402c9

On Tuesday night, a source told the Miami Herald the Dolphins, who are reportedly about $15 million under the salary cap, are “very confident’’ they have the goods to make a strong run at signing the former Colts qaurterback.
After his farewell press conference in Indianapolis, Manning flew here Wednesday night and was immediately tailed by TV news helicopters and other local media. A Dolphins insider said Manning wasn’t in town to meet with the team.

On many levels, Miami makes the most sense for Manning.
-- Despite holes on the right side, the Dolphins have strong foundation on the offensive line with left tackle Jake Long, a former No. 1 pick, center Mike Pouncey, their 2011 first-round pick, and left guard Richie Incognito in place.
-- At receiver, they have Brandon Marshall and there is heavy speculation that Reggie Wayne, Manning’s top receiver with the Colts who is an unrestricted free agent, is prepared to follow Manning to Miami, where he played his college ball with the Hurricanes.
“Me being in his trail going to Miami? I would love it,’’ Wayne told WQAM Radio yesterday. “I am totally available. South Florida is already hot out here, baby, so you put us together, it’ll be burning up. Now you got me visualizing it. I see it.’’
-- At running back, the Dolphins have the dynamic Reggie Bush, who stayed healthy for a full 16-game season last year for the first time in his career. He gained 1,000 yards for the first time and averaged five yards per carry.
-- The Dolphins have a solid defense in place, having finished sixth in the NFL last season in fewest points allowed.
-- The Dolphins offer the kind of weather Manning wants to play in. Those close to Manning, who has played his entire career in a dome at home, say he has no interest playing with a cold-weather team.
-- Manning owns a condo in South Beach, where he spends a lot of his offseason time. In fact, while the NFL Scouting Combine was taking place in Indianapolis two weeks ago, Manning was working out in Miami with some of his Colts teammates, including Wayne.

tough division though. he'll have to play against the Pats 2x a year and vs the Jets defense 2x a year.

Broncos or any NFCW team or Houston gives him a much easier path to making the playoffs

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

as a dolphins fan, i hope its miami. getting to watch the jets rex ryan era go down in flames with 2 5-11 years and a possible stress-overeating induced stroke would be ultra gratifying.

oh and having a superbowl contending team is a pretty sick side benefit.

f*** yea

I have no idea how Incognito started over Jerry. Sparano was such an idiot at times.

Imagine the insanity if Peyton went to Denver. Eli wouldn't see his brother in heaven.

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

Marino already has a Miami legacy (without a rang) tho. If he comes to Houston there is nobody's legacy he'd be crapping on.

DO IT!!!

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

If Peyton goes to Miami, they need to bring the Pile of Gay to every home game and set it off after every score. Preferably after every first down but that may be asking too much.

Faux John Madden ‏ @FauxJohnMadden
Texans reportedly not interested in Peyton Manning because Matt Schaub is just as capable of missing games due to injury

Hey diana we can see your posts fine when they're not bolded too. I think you want the quote function.

goes like this:

(quote)words words words(/quote)

except the parentheses are brackets []. And if you wanna quote someone by name, just go

(quote=ESPN)words words words(/quote)

Re: Peyton Manning landing spot thread.....

Would it not have made sense for some of the all in teams(Miami, Wash, etc) that are willing to give him everything he wants and are just hoping he chooses them to just have called Isray and say "will give you a 1st round pick(which is better than nothing) if you trade him to us?

It seems like money isnt an issue for a few teams. I know it would be disrespectful to manning and hes earned to play where he wants to now.

A team would have to trade a first-rounder, pick up his current contract (which is huge) and not get to meet with him first?

That's very risky. Indy could have kept him for less. They wouldn't have to give up a first round pick, and have more information about his health than any other team and they chose to cut him.
