As far as your article--go to yahoo. There is an article today about curing alcoholism through use of LSD. My point, don't believe everything you read.
Seems legit.

Fine but what other problems occur down the road. For every expert opinion you find another expert who disagrees.

Multiple neck and back surgery is not a good sign for a pro athlete.

They used the term due diligence. But, if he was the Superbowl lock guys like you think he is, teams like Houston, SF, and Baltimore would be very interested. Who knows, maybe they are making a mistake.

I get it, but Elway had 0 ACLs and a completely torn bicep by the time he was done. You play 15 years in the league and you're going to be ****ed up no exceptions.

Houston was never in the mix, that was E$PiN. They didn't have the cap room, have a very good QB already and weren't going to change their WCO offense to Manning preferred system. Meanwhile Baltimore is also up against the cap and have committed to Flacco and weren't going change QB at this point.

Pure Speculation and something to think about: I'm hearing that Manning's contract could be 90M over 4 years with 45 guaranteed.

Keep in mind that Manning is not against putting in a clause to protect the team if he is injured.

If Manning is asking for THAT much money, it has to be contingent on his health.

22.5 mil/year for 4 years and we're protected. I'd do that.

Manning's last pay day. You have to figure 20 mil at least a year. Sounds close to me.

Yeah, he better be playing DT and guarantee a SB.

Good thing it is St Patty's soon because Pay a ton is getting some cabbage.

Insane. Should Manning really still be the highest paid player in the league? After being completely unable to throw a ball for a year+

It has nothing to do with what he can't do. It has everything to do with what we don't know he can't do.

For that money I would rather fix our lines, strengthen our running backs, and secondary. Spending that much on him will definately limit what we can do on defense, and we all should know after that New England game that we have some major liabilities there, along with the O-line.
