    It's been known that Peyton idolizes Marino, right? Marino as an admin could be a token to make Peyton want to join Miami this offseason...

    Interesting. It certainly makes it exciting for any QB looking to come here.

    wow arent we faced with a conundrum....Peyton wins the Superbowl (or gets there) he more than likely stays in Indy, but if he loses, that means the pats get in....

    I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE!

    I want Peyton here Bad!

    Cmon guys, Peyton is not coming to Miami!

    Indy may as well fold up their team if they let Payton go. It's not going to happen.

    C-wag, Peyton coming here was a faint possibility but now its somewhat a possibility, he idolizes dan the man and would be honored to play for him, and im sure Dan thinks of him the same way....

    The talk wouldve really kicked up if the Colts got knocked out early again...

    I see the colts keeping him this year, but will probably be playing with a bunch of arena leaguers and scrub players, cause they sure as heck cant keep Harrison or Edgerrin, and maybe even Freeney...

    I don't think Manning is going anywhere. He is a grown man he is thinking about himself he likes Indy he likes the loud crowd he likes the money. I don't think he would leave because someone in Head of Football Operations no matter who is there. Now he might would go for a certain HC but he has got one of the best coaches in Dungy.

    Peyton won't be coming to Miami. Too far of a reach I think.

    I think with the way Manning has played these past two playoff games, no there is no way he leaves Indy. They could end up in the super bowl and he's now put aside those criticisms that he can't win the big game. He played as close to perfect in two playoff games as a QB can get, it could be the best stretch of two playoff games in the HISTORY of the NFL. Manning now knows that the Colts franchise is capable of advancing in the playoffs, and the franchise now knows that Manning is capable of winning the big game, so there won't be anything to impede them from signing Manning long term after the Super Bowl during the re-signing period.

    We know that the Colts can't franchise him because he would count 18 million against the cap. BUT, they CAN re-sign him before free agency even begins, and with the good relations between the two that comes from their playoff success, that will happen a lot easier than people suspect.

    If the colts had faltered in their first playoff game again I think Manning might have moved on....but he's on fire in the playoffs and the Colts are doing well. I doubt he goes anywhere now.

    any QB that comes here will rather know that we'll have an o-line that can block rather than knowing that Marino's in up in the press box...lol

    Ozzy rules and get well soon!!

    Peyton will be franchised so let me ask you guys if you're willing to go another 2 years without a first rounder? It seems like we never have a first rounder. Maybe if we could substitute Ogunleye for one of those first rounders.

    Ricky to running backs was like the 10th best at that time we got him. Manning is top 3, if not #1. Big difference. One is also a QB, the other a RB.

    Indy is not going to let Manning go over a 3% increase in pay. If they let Manning go it will be for 2 1st rounders nothing less. Sure he is worth it. But then Indy will also lose M. Harrison to a team with a good QB after next season. The Edge is also up after next season. They will not let him even test the waters. He will sign the largest contract in the history of the NFL for any position.

    Miami would have to give them:
    Jay, OGUN, (2) 1st and their Dan's soul....lol.....Sorry not gonna happen even with Dan in the front office.

    The Big O says that if Peyton Manning comes to Miami next season, that he will personally clean your house..........

    Getting Peyton is a long shot but it can happen....alot of things have to happen first.

    Peyton is an UFA, & would be franchised. I'm not suggesting a straight up trade, I'm saying if we sign him it would cost us two first rounders in compensation. Then we could see if we could substitute Ogunleye for one of those first round picks.

    I can see it. Marino get's Peyton and runs your cap to the ground and he is forced to trade RW away. We all know, Marino would rather throw the ball than run ,anyways.
