    Rarely does a HOF player make a great coach or executive. Lenny Wilkins I'd the only guy I can think of right now. Remember chiklets? John Elway and his hand picked coach? His hand picked QB can't beat out an incredibly bad Trevose Simons. I am going to pass on hiring a name without a resume.

    I don't think Marino will ever end up in the GM or VP seat. He's constantly been around for years but clearly not making an impact.

    Payton Manning is not a product of this franchise. you don't bypass the heart/soul/face of this storied team in Dan Marino for an interloper. that's how we ended up with Tannenbaum. Ross has always been a man who 'elevates from within' at Related... he's never done that once with this football team and it's ball-kicking him every single year that goes by. at 75, you'd think he'd learned that by now. MAKE MARINO THE VP. get a Dolphin to run the Dolphins!

    John Elway just won a Super Bowl as an executive. When is the last time a Dolphins executive did that? P. Manning is a winner and a professional. We don’t have one in our damn building!

    Seems like another bad idea, so yeah it'll likely happen.

    If we are going to ask a former player to do the GM job I would rather ask Zach Thomas. This guy is a "John Lynch" type player who understands the importance of building a very good defense as your foundation. Zach or Jason Taylor would be my pick.

    Do any of the 'players' we're advocating for have any GM experience, or at the very least, training? Doesn't seem like it.

    Larry Bird and Pat Riley are two others in the NBA. Curly Lambeau was a player, coach and GM...at the same time.

    John Elway has sucked but he took all the credit for the previous GMs hard work when they won the super bowl.

    "I'm better than Tannebaum"

    *Payton Manning, singing the Nationwide jingle and he wouldn't be wrong.

    I love all these 'our guys need to be more aggressive' type comments. <Snark> For F*#Ks sake, how much more aggressive could you humanly be to make it in the NFL? What do you want out of our players, to hide a guy in their jersey and shoot someone? Does it only count if the umpire is looking? The only people more aggressive are to old when they retire from a Seal Team. </Snark>

    Peyton Manning hasn’t done anything to prove he’s worthy of being anything in his post playing days. Elway got lucky when the late Broncos owner entrusted him with running the team. Elway caught lightening in a bottle after inheriting a great defense and good coaching staff. Manning dropped in his lap after being released and promptly led Denver to a SB victory. I’m not sure I’d want an unproven person in Manning running things. It’s too much that Miami, already has a lawyer in Tannenbaum with minimal NFL experience outside of his prior stint with the Jets; I’m not sure I’d take a chance on Peyton. Two wrongs don’t make it right. As for Dan Marino, no thanks to him either. Although in his brief stint as Dolphins GM, he’s on record as liking Philip Rivers. Miami’s needs to get the next Operations Manager right. Grier has done fine so far, thanks to his scouting background. I think he’ll surprise even more moving forward.

    I would much rather see Peyton form an investment group and buy the Dolphins. His siblings and father alone could probably get the cash needed to offer Ross a couple billion for the team. The way things are going, Ross might take it.

    I feel Payton Manning would be a tremendous asset to our team.

    He is so good, that trying to fit into an existing type of position would either limit his contributions or require him to take responsibility for work that is secondary to his interests. I suggest a new position be created. I would call it the Advisor to the Head Coach. This is not an assistant, but an independent advisor. This would be something like being on a board of directors, but in this case the board would be Payton and the CEO would be Adam Gase. It would be entirely play related.

    All organizations require a management structure to function reliably. In this organization he would do just what his title says. This position would allow Payton to focus on plays for both the Offense and Defense. Remember that for his entire career he ran an offence and read defenses. Let him continue to do that without imposing any secondary constraints on him as part of the job. He would advise the head coach about plays, their potential, new wrinkles that would make them more effective and defensively, what could work best against opposing teams defenses.

    Payton would interact with the head coach in developing new plays or could respond to specific requests from the head coach about plays and play related subjects. Payton and the coach would have free access to each other. This is an advisory position only, with all decisions and responsibility residing with the head coach.

    This would free Payton from player supervision and other administrative details, while allowing him do what he loves - thinking about football plays and how they interact. He might expand his input into draft selection, free agent selection, Quarterback development and long term team planning, along with anything else if he feels is pertinent to play development.

    What made Payton's relationship with Adam Gase special was that the two of them shared the same mentality and work ethic. They have earned each others respect. This position would let Payton follow his football related interests without imposing on him those normal management functions that are typically more clerical, or off target. He gets all the good without any of the bad associated with most jobs. I think this might be his dream job. He could even take the weekends off, if you could keep him from following the games.

    This type of position would probably not work as well for Payton with any other team, because of the potential for friction with a head coach.

    Making a position like this available for Payton would be great not only for the results we could expect, but it would also identify the Dolphins as a leader, not a follower in the competitive world of the NFL. I have no doubts other teams would eventually create a position like this for their teams It has the advantage of not affecting the cap!

    I wonder if there is a chance that Payton would be willing to pay the Dolphins for this kind of opportunity?
