Peyton

With all the Peyeton coverage yesterday, I did hear two cool stories about him. Dungy told the first one...when the Colts drafted Anthony Gonzales he was still in school when they started their OTAs, so Peyton would drive out to tOSU 7 hours round trip, twice a week, to throw with him for 90 minutes to make sure they were ready for training camp. Second story...Chris Myers' 19 year old son was killed in a car wreck Feb 16th. In the middle of all the Manning craziness in Indy, Peyton took the time to send the Myer's family a hand written letter of condolances. Good presser yesterday, classy guy...he'll do well.

About half of the teams in the NFL have been thrown around as possible destinations for Manning. I'm with tem...San Fran makes the most sense. Too bad Alex Smith has his best year and Manning comes along, but I think they have to make that move. According to sources, 12 teams have contacting Peyton's reps.

Weekend plans: fmjug is standing up in her friend's wedding this weekend. Rehersal dinner tomorrow night, wedding and reception Saturday night. Reception is alcohol free...a flask may be involved. The wedding and reception are both at a church though.

Canseco is doping in the Mexican league...hilarity. Jake Taylor couldn't cut it in the Mexican league.

That's all I have...go.

Well according to deadspin's review of the internet, every team should sign Peyton.

Jugdish said...

he could be all time QB in some games

I think blue said that

sorry blue

Keef said...

Alcohol free reception sounds terrible

Jugdish said...

i don't like it when my boss calls meetings but doesn't tell us what they are about. it would be nice to prepare.

El Padrino said...

but aitch said san fran first

El Padrino said...

aja, it wont be san fran

that harbaugh is a loyal guy, loves his team, likes smith

plus they'd have to change thier whole offensive identity they are a running team with a strong defense

and unless crabtree is going to be the a decent wr they have none

i got a feeling the patches came in

tem thinks the cardinals or the texans.

oh freak would not handle the texans move well

oh no

El Padrino said...

he can go back home

to tenneessee

El Padrino said...

fucking locker aint ready

El Padrino said...

ugly loss for lake show last night

tem said...

freak is devastated. don't rub it in.

i wonder how EP will take when the giants cut Eli.

tem said...

i know i handled trent dilfer leaving the bucs a lot better though.

El Padrino said...

how hard are all these nfl insider guys

dying to break the news of where manning will end up

glazer never seems like he gives a fuck about any of that and still beats people to the punch most of the time

mort/schefty probably aint even going to sleep until peyton makes his decision

El Padrino said...

peyton does have a south florida home already

for what that is worth

Jugdish said...

and unless crabtree is going to be the a decent wr they have none



they bring reggie wayne in too

tem said...

peyton + texans = superbowl. schaub only has 1 year left on his deal so he is cheap to cut.

peyton + cards = superbowl. kolb has lots of $$$ left on that contract. harder to cut and the cards owner is cheap.

El Padrino said...

5G

tem said...

seattle seemed popular for tv folks to pick.

tem said...

but when the conversation goes like this. 1st they add peyton then they get _______ they'll be competing in their division.

i don't know why peyton would choose that.

in seattle's case they are saying they need peyton and reggie wayne.

i don't think the texans would need to add anyone but peyton.

El Padrino said...

right, only a few teams only would need peyton

Jugdish said...

peyton + texans = superbowl. schaub only has 1 year left on his deal so he is cheap to cut.


texans could trade schaub fairly easily too. the problem is they won't do that. their management is loyal, seemingly like a lot of houston teams. i would count houston out just for that reason

Jugdish said...

in seattle's case they are saying they need peyton and reggie wayne.


adding wayne too is not a big deal...a lot of speculation they are a package deal


miami is 15 million under the salary cap too

tem said...

wayne has to go with peyton.

wayne on peyton's team is worth about 100 times more than wayne with another QB.


with Peyton he'll get > 1,000 yards. without peyton he is an afterthought. no more valuable than any other team's third receiver.

El Padrino said...

big solar storm today bring your umbrella

Jugdish said...

re: texans


texans are over the cap too after that deal they gave foster. they're going to have to cut some players, and I don't see mario williams coming back. too bad they can't do some kind of sign and trade with him.

tem said...

mario is gone.

he'll be a bucanneer or some shit.

El Padrino said...

schaub never stays healthy it would be a good move for houston

andre johnson/wayne/foster is a formidable offense

Jugdish said...

patriots will sign him, if they are smart

El Padrino said...

they played well without Mario

Jugdish said...

schaub never stays healthy it would be a good move for houston

andre johnson/wayne/foster is a formidable offense



agree on all counts...but houston probably doesn't even make the call to manning's agent

El Padrino said...

a few bad teams under the cap can pay him more, he'll follow the money

El Padrino said...

i bet you they already made that call

McNair is loyal but not stupid

El Padrino said...

like you said, 1 year left on his deal he will look for an extension

with peyton on the marker

not so fast my friend

tem said...

he won't play for a shitty team.

he's not going to the bucs, colts, browns, rams

Jugdish said...

he won't play for a shitty team.

he's not going to the bucs, colts, browns, rams



are you sure he isn't going to the colts?

Jugdish said...

McNair is loyal but not stupid


he gave david carr an extension

Keef said...

peyton does have a south florida home already



I don't think that's as big of a deal as some people think. Traveling is easy

Keef said...

andre johnson/wayne/foster is a formidable offense



Thanks aitch

Blue said...

I still think manning goes the 49ers, he has a relationship with harbaugh from back when manning was a rookie

Yes, they're a run oriented smash mouth team, but that defense is sick.

They have vernon davis who is 1000X better than dallas clark. And if you think that crabtree is worst than pierre garcon and austin collie, well you should just stick with rough touch analysis

Blue said...

how about that jeremy lin?

El Padrino said...

crabtree has shown nothing thus far

Blue said...

without melo 8-1, with melo 2-5

Blue said...

don't you think that maybe crabtree has sucked because his QB sucks?

Keef said...

with melo 2-5



Is anyone SAS about this?

Sources: Manning to pick a team within a week

Sources: Manning said to favor AFC



fish

Jugdish said...

agreed

Keef said...

Sources: Manning to pick a team within a week

Sources: Manning said to favor AFC




So he'll pick an NFC team in a month. Got it.

Jugdish said...

Sources are always accurate

Keef said...

I don't understand why he would go to a team like Miami who isn't really all that great. And he would have to play the Jets & Pats twice a year. If he was younger, I could see him wanting that challenge. But he only has a few years left and needs to win now

Jugdish said...

I don't understand why he would go to a team like Miami who isn't really all that great


their D is solid. Add manning and wayne to marshall and reggie and they are contenders. jets suck and their window is closing. i see playing the pats twice a year as a possible deterrant, but manning isn't a wussbag

Keef said...

so it's a foregone conclusion that Wayne goes wherever Manning goes?

Keef said...

And Reggie Bush sucks. The sun can shine on a dog's ass any day

Jugdish said...

so it's a foregone conclusion that Wayne goes wherever Manning goes?



no, its not definite, but its been talked about a lot. Miami is 15 mil under the salary cap, so i can see them bring both players in...and Manning makes Bush better

Keef said...

and Manning makes Bush better


twss

Jugdish said...

ha

tem said...

if wayne is smart he goes wherever manning goes and takes whatever salary he can get.

Blue said...

wayne's not smart, he went to Da U

El Padrino said...

you want to blame melo so bad dont you

Keef said...

tem acts like wayne is a scrub

Keef said...

you want to blame melo so bad dont you



if the shoe fits

Keef said...

you must acquit

El Padrino said...

thye played some shit-tay teams during the Lin run without melo

Blue said...

who you gonna blame EP?

Keef said...

thye played some shit-tay teams during the Lin run without melo



So they suck, like we thought. Got it.

El Padrino said...

who you gonna blame EP?

Obama

kod said...

"Too bad Alex Smith has his best year and Manning comes along, but I think they have to make that move"



he's in all likelihood done (at least being elite); overpaying for him now would be Vikings-esque...it'll be like Montana with the Chiefs or Moon with the Vikes, serviceable, but you aint getting the Peyton Manning the NFL has gotten accustomed to


but, I hope he does well, seems like a really good guy (ns)

El Padrino said...

"So they suck, like we thought. Got it."

yeah mediocre at best i dont remember saying anything other than that

a full training camp would have helped

someone stole Stoudemire and replaced him with Bo Outlaw
it'd be nice to get him back at some point

I think they should play D'antoni ball but also mix in some post up offense from Melo, Iso, he still is the Knicks best player, by far

El Padrino said...

i dont think he is done at all

i think however, he is suspect to a big hit more so than in the past or more so than normal

El Padrino said...

especially a blind side hit

El Padrino said...

but i guess that is all QB's

El Padrino said...

some seem to take those shots better

like ELIte in the San Fran game

Romo would have died if he got hit like that

Keef said...

LP should call the plays for the Kniss*

El Padrino said...

funny about canseco he was all on twitter lately talking nonsense about being clean and how good of a player he was before taking roids

El Padrino said...

he's a clown

Blue said...

"...it'll be like Montana with the Chiefs"

they made it to the AFC championship game with him one year, and were fairly competitive the other year

El Padrino said...

why is cuse/uconn the early game

instead i get marquette/louisville

Stoled my joke

El Padrino said...

i set that up on the tee

Jugdish said...

and third wideout Mario Manningham will be forced out by the emergence of Victor Cruz and Manningham's insistence that he's secretly a no. 1 receiver.

tem said...

"tem acts like wayne is a scrub"

he didn't exactly tear it up without manning last year. garcon did fine though.

wayne's lost a step and without manning he doesn't have the i2i thing going on with his QB.

Good thing

"Alcohol free reception"



I know what all three words mean individually....but together I can't make any sense of it

Blue said...

it's a southern thing

tem said...

i think the words are in the wrong order.

must have meant free alchohol reception.

that must be southern talk for open bar.

Meiz said...

I think Arizona makes a shitload of sense for Peyton.

Meiz said...

They'd just have to figure out the Kolb situation.

Blue said...

Kolb is due a roster bonus on the 17th, i think. So they have to decide to cut him by then if they think they're goingto get Peyton

Meiz said...

Maybe they'll have juice boxes and licorice at the reception.

Meiz said...

"Kolb is due a roster bonus on the 17th, i think. So they have to decide to cut him by then if they think they're goingto get Peyton"


CUT THAT MEAT!

Meiz said...

Somebody should let Josh know we're figuring out the Manning situation for him.

Blue said...

here's the thing...colts win 2 more games last year, we're not having this discussion because they couldn't get Luck.

Meiz said...

That Colts team still probably misses the playoffs, even with Peyton.

tem said...

no way would the nfl have let peyton not make the playoffs.

Keef said...

he didn't exactly tear it up without manning last year. garcon did fine though


I forgot how good Curtis Painter is

And Garçon had almost half his yards and all 6 of his TDs in 3 games, the other 13 games he was garbage

Keef said...

And garçon didn't even have 1000 yards, so it's not like he tore it up and Wayne didn't

Keef said...

Wayne had more catches and more yards than Garçon and 2 fewer TDs

tem said...

wayne sucked

kod said...

"Maybe they'll have juice boxes and licorice at the reception."


maybe even a cake walk

Keef said...

Garçon sucked more. Because they bolth had a horrible QB

tem said...

wayne's output droped 33% on catches 30% on yards and 33% on TDs.

it was his lowest total catch year since 2003. lowest total yards year since 2003. lowest total TD year since 2002.

garcon on the other hand had career highs in catches, yards and td (tied).

Keef said...

wayne's output droped 33% on catches 30% on yards and 33% on TDs.



The talent level of the QB droped* 83%

tem said...

garcon is on his way up, wayne is on his way down. he needs peyton to keep him afloat.

this will be waynes 12th year or something like that. his legs are old.

tem said...

"The talent level of the QB droped* 83%"


and yet Garcon had his best year as a pro.

Keef said...

garcon on the other hand had career highs in catches, yards



And bolth were still lower than Wayne's totals

Keef said...

garcon is on his way up, wayne is on his way down



I don't disagree with that

Keef said...

But Wayne isn't a #3 WR

tem said...

he is a #2 or a #3 on a good team.

tem said...

without peyton he is a #2 or #3.

if wayne was so awesome i imagine the colts would have kept him.

Keef said...

Your face is #3 on a 3 person team

Keef said...

Trio to the layperson

tem said...

apology accepted

Keef said...

he is a #2 or a #3 on a good team.



#2 sure.

Keef said...

The only team I can think of that he would maybe be a #3 is Pittsburgh

tem said...

i already said apology accepted. you can stop apologizing.
