    Manning would be the first GM ever to walk out onto the field pre-snap to shout "Omaha! Omaha!!!" at the offense.

    Actually, I have a better idea. Peyton Manning as Offensive Coordinator. The guy was said to have a photographic memory about plays. I'm sure he still has a great love of the game that exceeded when his body broke down.

    Peyton remembers plays from years ago:

    Peyton breaks down defenses faster than anyone:

    Marino has been 'stinky jock deep' learning the position... it's his 'house'... he's next.

    I will give Manning the benefit of the doubt on being involved in an offense, QB advisory, etc....but on the overall running of a team, full personnel controls, and the day to day of an organization? Not ready to hop on for that experience and associated learning curve....

    He has no connection to the team and no experience as a GM. Completely terrible idea.

    Would much rather have Danny boy as our gm. Not only was dan a much better qb but Peyton was known for being a huge x and o guy while dan was known for being a huge aggression guy. we need a gm who will bring in guys with an aggressive mindset.

    If anything Peyton should be the gm at indy, his x and o mindset is pretty much what indy is usually known for as a team, x and o and finesse. Finesse isn't the dolphins way, it never works out here.

    I don't see why that matters...he does have a connection to Gase though.

    Tannenbaum had plenty of experience.

    As much as I love Manning, no. We need someone with successful experience to rebuild this team top to bottom. Peyton may be great or he may suck. We don't need another experiment.

    Respectfully disagree brother. If it is done right with the right supporting cast it can be done.

    The Dolphins are all about on-the-job training for inexperienced head coaches so why not hire Manning as GM to learn on the job?

    Lol what? What big time talent did Grier bring in when he was head of the scouting Dept. We haven't had any real major talent in forever... If he couldn't bring in the right talent as a scout, what in the world makes you think he will as GM?

    Peyton is a winner and a perfectionist. Guy has done nothing, but be the best his whole life. Anyone that thinks P. Manning won't be a success at whatever he decides to do in the next chapter of his life is clueless. P. Manning has a drive to succeed that less than .00001% of the population has.

    That said he isn't coming to Miami! Just like when he gave us the token visit as a Free Agent. Anyone remember that? Meeting only with Philbin was a stipulation of the deal. Ireland bullied his way into the visit and poof Manning was gone. Not saying he would have signed here if Ireland fell off a cliff. What I am saying is Mannings do it their way and their way only. Manning isn't coming here and being told well you answer to Tannebuam, you can't build your own staff. The typical way our "hands off" owner passive aggressively mucks up this team.

    If you'd rather have Tbum than Manning I can only conclude that you know nothing about either person. One knows football inside and out and the other is a crappy used car salesman.

    Manning would be a dream. This team has been stuck in a perpetual nightmare for decades. Ain't happening.

    I mean, at least make an argument for why you think that. I'm just trying to figure out how someone could think Mike Tannenbaum is somehow more qualified to run a football team than Peyton Manning. Something better than greatest footballer at least.

    Tannenbaum is a con man. Manning is a football god. I'll take the latter.

    So you're responding to a post from weeks ago, 3 monster losses later, with this amazing insight? But I stand by the fact that i'd prefer an actual talent guy in charge of personnel than a suit claiming himself as such, despite recent failures.

    Grier is another example of a guy who was basically hired/promoted by default (Dan Campbell, Dennis Hickey, etc) ...we didn't interview a single executive for the GM opening once Hickey was fired, and why would we, nobody would want the job, nobody wanted to come in here and be Tannenbaum's puppet and have their fate tied to him, so we had no choice but to just promote someone from within.

    Here is why I don't want Manning.

    He has zero management experience. Being a great footballer won't make him a great GM or whatever position you want him in. You want people who can identify talent an get rid of deadwood. The way Miami is, you need an experienced GM.

    Tannebaum needs too go, no doubt about that, and go now. Start looking for a replacement who knows the football front office. Who knows how too draft and trade.

    Manning has no experience in that.

    Tannenbaum and Ireland had plenty of experience as high level front office executives.

    That argument could be used in defense of hiring a toddler as GM. Yes, yes, "a toddler would be better than Ireland or Tbum."

    Eliot Wolf, Director–Football Operations...Give him a % in ownership
    but I doubt with his strong ties in Green Bay he'd do it.

    The son of former Packers general manager and 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Ron Wolf, Eliot’s scouting career unofficially began at age 10, when he joined his father in film sessions at Lambeau Field. His scouting abilities continued to develop as he filed his first report at age 14 for the Atlanta Falcons.

    Overall, he has spent more than two decades in official and unofficial capacities working as a talent evaluator. Wolf has contributed to the Packers’ draft preparations since 1993, 25 consecutive drafts overall. He has held nine NFL scouting internships – five with the Packers, three with the Falcons and one with the Seattle Seahawks.

    Originally hired as a pro personnel assistant on Feb. 26, 2004, by then-General Manager/Head Coach Mike Sherman, Wolf spent four seasons in that position.

    His primary duties include coordinating the pro and college football departments as well as handling both college and pro player evaluation through film study, college visits, pro days, college all-star games and the NFL Scouting Combine. During the season, he is responsible for overseeing advance scouting of upcoming Packers opponents, evaluating potential free-agent signees and recommending player tryouts

    I'd take a zero experience Manning over a tenured Tannenbaum every day of the week. Manning would learn on the job and be just fine. In 2 years he would be more proficient in his duties than Tannenbaum would in 2 lifetimes.

    I don't know who will be available when Ross finally throws his arms up and says 'enough!', but I doubt I would trust any of them over Manning.

    I'm 110% down with the idea of getting Peyton in the front office. I have no doubt in my mind that he will out work anyone, and would bring a glowing energy to Dolphins management that has been severely lacking for decades.

    I don't even think a toddler would've had as bad an offseason as Ireland did in 2013

    At this point I would be prepared to give it a shot.

    Forget manning. being a good player doesnt make you a good gm. Let him earn a GM job if he wants one - which I suspect he doesnt

    I'd love to see him as offensive coordinator. One thing about Manning is he won't be outworked.

    As far as GM goes, does anyone really believe Miami would make a change?
