    We know he and Gase have a great relationship, he called Gase the smartest guy he knows, gotta think had he been a GM last year looking for a new HC Gase would've been pretty high on his list....and Peyton has a home in Miami. Sounds like a perfect fit to me.

    Would definitely like to see someone other than Tannenbaum making decisions for us. Maybe he could work hand in hand with Grier and give Tannenbaum the boot.

    I'll take that "gamble" that he's better than what we currently have

    Grier isn't bad..Mike T is.

    But Mike T isn't going anywhere.

    You never know if he'd be good or not, but based on his NFL career no one would outwork Peyton Manning.

    This, id rather see Grier explicitly in charge of all on field personnel decisions, not fully knowing his level of influence at the moment. Hes got the proper background and I think he knows the type of players the team needs to be a winner, judging from interviews, his experience, and gut feeling.

    While talking about Manning jointing the organization, a bit off subject....
    We all love #13. But what has he done since becoming 'special adviser'? What has he advised? He is collecting paychecks, right?

    I wouldn't want him here. If it turned out that Gase wasn't effective as a HC it would be damn near impossible to get rid of him.

    That's what I read a couple weeks ago, but I just searched it. He says no interest..so maybe a gm gig would be in the works

    I would be all for Manning possibly becoming our GM. Unlike Marino, Manning seems like the type that would do well in that position. When I think of Marino I don't really think of someone that played a cerebral type of game. Plus Marino has already quit once before in a similar position.

    I support anybody over Tannenbaum for two reasons. Not only is it very hard to be worse than Tannenbaum, but he's a conman who is likely to dupe Ross into keeping him for at least another 5 years. I don't care if his replacement is Ted Ginn's family, I will support it if it means the organization can move on from him.

    As long as Manning is also in the booth calling the plays. Let’s be honest, Gase didn’t call the plays in Denver, that was Manning.

    Dan was great on the field chemistry wise with players he was on offense with, Dan off the field... not so much. When CBS let him go, he kind of hung in limbo for a bit and when reality sunk in that he had bills to pay and every day life stuff, he came on board with the franchise. At first he may have had thoughts/dreams of working towards the Elway type of gig over time but I believe he became okay with his role to the franchise. He gets to watch the QBs practice and throw in his two cents(which is great!) and watch film with them from time to time but overall he is basically a party trick that you break out at events "And here is Dan Marino!" followed by a half *** smile on his face because he rather be in a booth somewhere watching the game.


    As for Manning, not really sure where people are digging this info from, just the other day on FS1 he did a sit down with Troy Aikman(few days before the retirement of jersey and statue stuff for colts) and he even said people told him he would miss the game and this and that but he is enjoying life with wife and kids, vacation, gets to watch Eli play a lot more, he just seems overall content. I am sure at some point he will get back into football in some shape or form but he is a hard worker and works for where he ends up/how he gets it, so I have a feeling he would take some low end entry level like job with a franchise and learn the ropes before deciding "I want to be a GM". Sadly, Miami is not the place to learn where to become a successful GM. Personally, I would enjoy seeing him in a Gruden type of role.. not MNF but the Gruden's QB Camp stuff leading up to the Draft(s). It would be amazing to see Manning pick the minds of young QBs, getting them to learn new things/teaching them how to read this or that defense, etc.. I would tune in every damn time and even during reruns.

    Being a Vol fan I would say no!! The only thing I would want Peyton as is a QB adviser. Not a couch even. Cause he doesn't seem to understand that not every QB see the field as he does.

    I could see Peyton doing the TV thing, possibly calling game even working in a studio, but to give him a GM job because he was a great QB....no way.

    I got that much from your first post lol, I just meant like where is Glazer hearing these rumblings? Are teams just hearing Manning in past leaving the door open to idea of being a GM and tossing their hats in the ring ahead of time or is there a close person to Manning revealing this stuff? I get it's a business and sources are sources but it seems a bit far fetched.. although crazier things have happened in the NFL.

    Peyton is a winner. No one will work harder and put more work in than Peyton Manning. Just hope he doesn't ruin his legacy in Cleveland! The Mistake on The Lake is a cursed cesspool. He will return to Indy and fix the Colts.

    That's a good point, how long of a contract did Tannenbaum sign? Does anyone know?

    A GM's job is a complex one, thing of a person that not only has to deal with the draft, but Free Agency, player contracts etc. I like Payton Manning but to make him our GM because he was a good QB....come on.

    Peyton wasn't just an all time great QB, we're talking about arguably the greatest football mind in NFL history...I mean the Niners just hired John Lynch as GM, Peyton is 10x more qualified

    I'd gamble on him at GM in a heartbeat. He knows as much about building a team as anyone. He's had success with great offenses in Indy and then again with a great defense in Denver.

    Yes they did and we can debate if that was a good hire or not.......but what makes Peyton or lynch qualified? Tannenbaum for all his BS is an attorney (pretty sure) which I believe is important especially when dealing with complex contracts and the cap. What I am saying snoop is... being able to possibly spot talent is only one aspect of the job, it entails so much more.

    I'd be up for Peyton Manning as GM although you'd have to get rid of Tannenbaum otherwise there's no point. I'd bring back Dawn Aponte (who is now chief administrator for the NFL league office for football operations) to replace T-Baum and be VP of Football Operations.

    No. He is a Marino-like person off the field. Good advisor for QBs and a figure head for an organization but no GM. He'll go into TV one day and become an analyst and that is a good spot for him.

    Sports is an endless cycle of dice rolling. We've just been crapping out for too long. Eventually everyone hits a jackpot. It's just a matter of whether we will still being alive when it happens.
