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

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.
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.

Better than Peyton Manning? I thought 35 year old Manning = Super Bowls?

listening to this radio right now.. they say the Chiefs have already offered Manning a deal earlier today.

But like anything take that with a grain of salt.

Agree Jets are probably closer to SB, than we may be but why are all the "Peyton's not healthy"....."why not try to see what Jets got in their young QB" ......"Sanchez led us to playoffs and two AFCCG appearances" arguments not being thrown around on that idea?

Because it was reported the Jets were not happy with Sanchez's work habits and attitude, and if you wonder if that will improve or not, one can see why they would have interest in another QB.
