Who knows, right? Just yesterday morning, the rumor of the day was that Peyton (Manning) was retiring – until Archie (Manning) dismissed it. But that’s not going to stop the rumor mill. And it seems every so often, I see something on Twitter that says he and Saturday are coming here. And then there’s this teaser that the Redskins have decided on the 2012 QB.
Of course, we need a real QB. And I like Peyton. I find him amusing. Oh, and he’s good. At least he was pre-injury. But that just seems like a classic Danny move – bringing in an aging vet to instead of drafting (and developing the talent).
On the other hand, NFL draft guru Mel Kiper says that at #6, there won’t be any good quarterbacks left. If that’s the case, then bringing Peyton here isn’t such a bad move.
And then there’s this: As G points out, with Peyton at the helm, we would probably win the NFC East, not that that’s much of a feat these days, with the crappy shape the division’s in. But it would mean a playoff game. Now *that* is tempting.
I’ve never been to a playoff game before. And when you look at the ‘Skins, well, it just doesn’t look like it’s going to happen in the near future.
