    So if our FO is worried about Manning after he retires, why not just make up a new job for him to fill?

    Even the strongest of Manning supporters would have to admit that it's not a good situation to have an owner at odds with all the people he's hired to run the team.

    I don't think that's the issue.

    I think the front office's issue is that this wasn't in their plan. They wanted to draft their QB, develop him and let him sink or swim.

    Think about what has gone down in the last 12 months. New coaching staff, new GM, two new QBs, brand new offense and brand new defense.

    The defense we're trying to employ doesn't compliment Manning's style of play. We should have a smaller defense to rush the passer to go with Manning's flurry of points. We've gone to a bigger defense to stop the run.

    We're going to totally scrap the offense we've spent the last year installing to cater to Manning(an offense that Jared Cook and Nate Washington had career years in). Jake Locker now has to learn his second offense in two years. Do we go with this new Peyton offense when he moves on when we start Locker or do we go to a Locker offense?

    It's a total cluster**** right now.

    This is amusing, Bills CB Drayton Florence is saying there's an 80% chance Mario signs with the Bills today. Didn't the Broncos say something similar about Manning? LOL

    If we miss out on Mario and Peyton goes with Denver, I'm going to be pisssssed!

    I am not sure if Mario is the right guy for us anyway. Seems expensive for average prodution.

    It's now Manning or nothing. If the Titans don't sign him and this flirtation period caused them to also miss out on Williams, there are going to be a lot of upset people around here.

    Well I guess we now have an example of who we lost in the Peyton sweepstakes for Sawdust....just trying to find a silver lining here.

    Drat....this blows.
