Of course they won't.. ignorance is bliss... Like thinking this teams problems will be fixed with some other QB coming in rather than realizing the tough reality.. things will get even worse..

Miami's teams have not been good, it's just not been at QB, but as good as Marino was, he still didn't bring home a Super Bowl while Elway brought 2 and many fans were not always thrilled with him either.

Amazingly after that debacle, you stopped posting ridiculous **** and toned down your racist and vile rhetoric in the WPR forum.

No child needs to be taught by a ****stain like you Barry Rimjob.

So the Broncos would like Manning. That means he is coming to the Broncos?
Miami

Pros: good climate, in the AFC, Manning knows Southern Florida well

Cons: in a tough division, team not in great shape, Rookie head coach

Denver

Pros: in the AFC, in weak division, experienced head coach

Cons: bad climate, team not in great shape, offense very run oriented, would be unpopular with large segment of fans

I am not sure that Arizona is going to go after him unless they can sucker some team into taking on Kolb's contract, right now the Jets would be my favourite to pick him up, they are not afraid of reclamation projects, they have a not insignificant amount of money, they are in a big market in the AFC. The second pick would Houston, they just seem like a perfect fit and with Matt Schaubs injury they have the perfect excuse.

Let's put this "healthy" idea to rest. When a part your neck that's supposed to have mobility no longer does, you're never 100%.

If they want Peyton they will get him.

But the Dolphins have yet to express remote interest in Flynn, according to a Yahoo! Sports report, and Miami owner Stephen Ross has instructed general manager Jeff Ireland to make a "full-court press" on Peyton Manning.

As you might be aware, the Colts released Manning on Wednesday, making the legendary quarterback fair game to every team in the league.

Ross made it clear last year he wanted to pair a high-profile coach with a top-tier quarterback in 2012. Philbin could well become a fine head coach, but a sexy choice he is not. Manning represents the other half of Ross' dream.

That would only matter if Elway never got his share of boos. I remember vividly people actually asking for QB's like Kubiak and Brister to play over Elway when he had struggles.

The Packers were correct to get rid of Favre, and I don't say that in hindsight. The way he was jerking them around year after year, and with a 1st round QB collecting dust, it made perfect sense.

As for Manning, he has that injury baggage that you don't gamble your franchise's future on. A healthy Peyton Manning stays with the Colts, with or without that 28MM number, so it's not like he was gone either way. So I ask again, if Manning can turn the Broncos into a consistent SB threat overnight, why wouldn't the Colts keep him and ride out the rest of his career? You can't use the injury excuse, but ignore it for this team.
What future are you gambling? you are not giving up anything to get him, no draft pick, no player no nothing. You pick up Manning, you spend your 1st round pick on whatever the hell you want, you use Manning's star power to sign Reggie Wayne and boom you are in business without giving up a single draft pick on a position you didn't need anyway.

Manning has 1 big injury, if he is over it, he is over it, he is no Chad Pennington.

A few comments on the bolded parts...

You forgot Elway as a "pro"
Our run oriented offense would adjust with Manning at the helm.
I don't think the Manning move would be all that unpopular. It would with some but I think the excitement would really build, and if Manning played well the bandwagon would fill very quickly.
I have heard/seen it reported very definitively that the Jets/Manning marriage is pretty much a no go. Right now you really only need to concern yourself with Miami, Arizona, and maybe Seattle unless someone else jumps in.

One rumor mill has Jets signing Manning, and trading Sanchez to Seattle, reuniting him with his former college coach....

The Tebow zealots are getting nervous. You can tell by how they lash out almost uncontrolably.

What future? What gambling? What if Manning isn't over it, then what? So you sign Manning, dump Tebow, and Manning finds out his neck isn't as strong as he thinks it is. How does this team look then, with no QB to even groom? Maybe we can just throw money at FA QB's year after year? That usually works out well.

Actually Miami won quite a bit late in the season and have a better defense than the Broncos right now and may be one of the few teams in the history of the NFL to finish 6-10, yet still score more points than they gave up.

There certainly are a lot of Miami fans trolling right now. I wonder why that is?

The Jets are probably the best team he can go to. They are close enough that Manning can put them over the top, and Sanchez hasn't progressed after 3 years as starter where you are confident you can win with him. Even so, there are no guarantees, but at least it makes sense.

Didn't the Broncos beat the Jets? How are they any closer than the Broncos?

Well, the Bills beat the Broncos, so maybe Manning should go to Buffalo.

Lol, yeah, I can see the excitement some folks feel, but OTOH I hate to see the club reduced to hiring a washed up vet for maybe a couple years in a desperation move to salvage years of poor personnel decisions.
