I really don't understand the Titans trying to make a move on Manning when they basically have the Next Steve Young in 3 years

Thanks for taking up our argument. You just derationalized the Manning move for everyone except the haters.

Perhaps the young man isn't ready and they would like to have him learn under a legend.


See Favre/Rodgers.

I suspect Jake Locker is going to end his career a lot closer to Jake Plummer than Steve Young.

While not a legend, Matt is a good enough player to learn from. This is all owner getting involved.

I would suspect the Titans are looking at ticket sales and a Manning back to Tennessee would probably create a lot of buzz there, but they are not very close to contending, so I would be shocked to see Manning sign there.

I'm thinking how it ended with Plummer is what TJ meant, not a player comparison.

I think a lot of NFL guys believe the league has gotten to the point, with the rule changes and all, that a premier QB alone automatically puts you in serious contention to win it all and considering those guys come available next-to-never: teams see a chance to jump on it.

I keep thinking Peyton Manning is not dumb enough to play for Bud Adams circus.

The circus is the FO wanted to make a play for Super Mario, and Bud Adams likes playing GM, which is how they ended up with Vince Young in the first place.

Until he actually does it, he is just the next Jake Locker.

Nope...It's the grooming of a QB. They had no QBs last year. They draft their QBOTF and make him sit behind a vet. Hasselbeck probably wont cost much (cap penalty wise.) They sign a HoF QB (cause those don't become available often) and sit Locker a la Rodgers. What is a circus about that? Don't want to take this thread and turn it into "that" kind of thread, but the Locker situation reminds me of another.

Sort of agree... but...what it also goes to show if you are Manning is how much they/he wants you. Owners have the ultimate word. But when you get to see the college Legend that played in your backyard, turn HoF QB, be a free agent, you go try and sign him. Specifically when you are a 89 year old dreaming of a SB. His coach and GM understand that.

And it's not a situation were the coach wants nothing of Manning, maybe he never thought about Payton playing for a division rival (the reason I think it wont happen. Peyton is no Favre). They have a solid roster, a Owner in a win now attitude, and the place were he is loved, his wife is from, and were they can actually set roots and raise their kids.

cutting hasselback costs them 4 million in cap. Jake Locker carries a 3 million cap for 2012. Figure in Manning who CANNOT BE BACKLOADED because of the neck, and you have around 30 million in cap out of a total 120.6. That's a circus.

And, Chirs Johnson's cap for 2012 is ten million.

Sry...just don't see it. Hasselbeck is expendable, Locker is on the cheap for the next 4 years. They still have 30 mill in cap and that's more than enough to get Manning without a backloaded contract. Their situation (contract wise) is no different than ours, or others around the NFL.
