    I am just amazed that folks are actually surprised that it is where it is now....

    Manning wants the money. Why do you think he took the $90MM deal last year, knowing his actual health condition.

    Did people REALLY think that he was going to become charitable NOW?

    Manning to the Titans just doesn't make sense.

    We have a more than decent QB in Matt Hasselbeck and a very talented QB in Jake Locker. There is no need to strengthen that position because we have been set at QB since Munchak took over.

    Yes, at times the offense looked stagnant last year; however, I believe that was due to many different things (abysmal O-line play, an anemic rushing attack and major miscommunications between a new QB and his WR's). Did Hasselbeck play perfect football? No. Did Locker? No. They did what was asked of them and they went above and beyond expectations. That doesn't warrant a quarterback change. If Britt would have been healthy, there isn't a doubt in my mind that we would have made the playoffs.

    I believe that the money Manning is requesting is fine if you're a team that's missing one piece of the puzzle (49ers, Ravens, Broncos) but not for a team that has a depleted defensive line, two young and inconsistent CB's and questionable play from it's safeties. This isn't a good fit for us because, like it or not, we are NOT a contender yet. We have too many things we have to fix and at this point, wasting money on Manning would hinder our chances at fixing some of these things over the next couple of years.

    Possible, but only if we have to follow through with it.

    Don't think Peyton would even entertain such stuff.

    I wish Bud would say give him a final offer and a deadline to reply. Its more than a fair offer( I would imagine) and the bidding war is about to come to an abrupt halt.

    I've been right since day 1.


    Love the people who tried to argue and say that Manning wouldn't take up much cap space.

    I'm starting to wonder if that's not the way to go too. I suspect he may want to e a Titan more than a Bronco or a 49er. That would be one way to find out for sure. I don't see it happening though.
