If the doctors tell him he can play, even if he isnt 100% healthy or fully recovered, do you still want Manning to be the starting quarterback next season?
I think everyone is a little nervous about his injury but I honestly think its a chance we need to take. This is one of the greatest QBs ever and even though he is up there in age he still puts up top 5 numbers. Manning is also a great player to have in the locker room. If we do sign him, then its also telling me our FO wants to win now! I'm all up for taking the chance on manning. Also if we take a shot on manning then there is a strong possibility Wayne could come.As much as I know if he was 100% healthy he would make us a serious title contender, I would still be worried he is far more likely to be re-injured than the next QB. I know it's a different injury than what Marino had that ended his career. But when it comes to nerves, it's just too much risk for me to say let's invest a crap load of money and time into an aging QB. Best case scenario we get 4 years out of Manning. Plus can he play in a WCO, if we sign him to have him run his Colts O here? This decision is a lot more complicated than it may seem at 1st glance.
I would feel far less concerned with a Matt Flynn or one of the QB's in this years draft after Luck and RG3. They just seem far less risky to me than what Manning is probably going to go through this year. Shoot he may not even be ready to play this year, no one really knows.
all very good points...NO!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
its not so much the injury thing for me, its how much he is going to cost. and anyone thinking peyton is walking in here and signing for some budget contract is shooting liquid crack, pcp and lsd in their eyeball!!!
and anyone who thinks this team is a super qb away from the bowl is shooting the same drugs and if we sign manning, we wont be getting the pieces we need. it will be back to low budget, cast off free agents like the colts have had to do since they gave manning that mass salary and ending in a 2 win season.
we need starters, big time playmakers in several spots and we need depth at ALL positions. we hand out manning type contracts and its all over before it even gets started.
think folks. dont dream, think!!
