Yeah their coach needs to be fired - like now! That guy is worthless. If they get luck it will be a perfect situation because Manning will help him and he'll get to sit on the bench for a few seasons and learn from one of the greatest of all time. Crazy thing if it happens - the Colts will have drafted the two most highly praised and wanted QBs coming out of college in the last 15 years.

I think if manning might have 1-2 more seasons in him.

I say, if he isn't 100% he should retired and become the QB's coach in Indy (or even better the head coach, who surrounds himself with a good staff). Typically stars make terrible coaches, but Manning is an absolute exception. He is the smartest player in NFL history. Knows how to read defenses just as well as offense. He would be a great head coach.

I say, put him in right away, but give him support with quality coordinators.

A.J. Green reminds me of a young Terrell Owens.... Very strong and fast... If he gets stronger (like TO did after his rookie year), Green can be the most dominate WR for years to come.

Yeah but Green still has a long ways to go before he can be compared with the 2nd greatest WR of all time. Yeah I said it, check the stats. I see him as having better hands and not quite the big play capability.

I agree completely that TO is the second best WR of all time... It probably could have been Moss, if he didn't take plays (and games) off.... TO always put 100% effort during the games, and was just a physical freak.

However, if you look at AJ Green, he looks a lot like owens. Lets hope he doesn't have an ego like him.

I was thinking the same thing, but then I read this:

I guess it's Miami in the end, which I thought was the second most likely destination for Peyton.

I just read that and came back here to retract! Yeah Miami sounds like a go now, they have some decent weapons w/ Bush and Marshal, throw Wayne and Manning in that mix and that offense is downright stacked!

I love that the Jets are sheepishly trying to get involved, they (like all NYC sports franchises) are pathetic - everyone is tired of their name's being thrown in every time anyone even sniffs a FA. two years ago everyone (including me) was riding their jocks - "Jets are loaded! They're gonna win it all!" and they bought up anyone with a name and proceeded to get worse all the while claiming that Sanchez is an Elite QB and future HoFer. Now, the Jets and Big Mouth's circus act has worn the novelty off and exhausted NFL fans, there is nothing to do but win - too bad they'll never be able to do that! Sanchez sucks, Ryan is like a George W. Bush grade idiot and that City is just a horrendous sports town because they smother everything to death and ruin good things by proclaiming greatest at the first glimpse of above-average!

Yeah I just ranted and sh**ted on NYC sports, I'll never pass up even the smallest opportunity to do so, but if anyone things this is even remotely a result of the NFC Championship game - you are wrong. Actually the Giants are about the only NYC franchise I don't completely hate and what I said above doesn't apply to them.

I wouldn't want to play for the redskins either... it is where QB's go and die. But so is miami. Just too many QBs in those 2 franchises.

Gonna be interested to see where he goes. Manning will always be one of my favorite all time players. Definitely my favorite QB. I hope he becomes a head coach when he retires.

Which New York Giants? The Men in Blue or the baseball team (playing out West)???

:-)

Yeah I saw the JETS extended Sanchez contract.. What a joke.

Time to vote for the craziest team in the week:

A. Colts- for cutting their key players (plus putting the rest on the trading block)
B. Washington- for giving 3 first round picks (including a 6th overall), 1 second round pick for this years 2nd overall
C. New York Jets- for extending Mark Sanchez 3 more years (he still had 2 years left).

I don't see Colts as a crazy team. They are cutting ties with Manning's guys, and are making room for Luck to develop his team. Anyway, those players are already old, they would just get them maybe couple more wins, which would end up costing them high draft pick, and a new weapon for Luck. And pretty much all of them are under performing, Addai can't return to his best year's form, Freeney wasn't good last season, Clark also wasn't great, and they all have problems with injuries.

They are starting from scratch, and keeping just guys who played well and weren't injured a lot.

So, I would say it's either Jets or Redskins, it's really hard to decide at this point.

I completely agree... The colts are making logical moves based on their situation. They have a GM who looks like he has the future in mind. Unlike the other two teams, which are ruining their future with bad decisions.

I say Washington is making the worst decision. 4 high draft picks is a lot. If RG3 is a bust, it will set their franchise back another 3-5 years. If sanchez screws up, you can always cut him. Yes, the cap will hurt even more, but at least he wil be gone.

Can I vote for the 49ers for not going after Manning? I like Alex Smith, and I think he's developing into a halfway-decent QB, but this is Peyton Manning for crying out loud. Eddie D would have flown him in on his private jet last week and not let him leave the facility until he signed.

Otherwise I vote for the Jets. Though after seeing the numbers, Sanchez extension is more like a salary cap restructure, anything that gives him more money is just plain stupid.
