    Sounds good until he suggests that all the pieces are there exept Manning.

    I like Matt Moore, BUT I think adding Manning would be a lot of fun no matter how it turns out.

    I'm not in favor of shortcuts as I think they show poor planning, but a HoF caliber Qb?

    It's certainly an exciting article to read. Pushes all the right buttons on our dreams as a dolphins fans. Maybe it can be another Montana to KC storyline. But it still doesn't address the elephant in the room which is his health. If Ross is serious about this, he needs to bring in about 50 experts in the medical field to scrutinize Manning to get their best guess on his possible recovery.
    Given our luck the past many years, Manning will play one game and then be in-and-out the est if the season.

    If we draft a QB to be groomed to be the heir, then I'm okay with this.

    Until he gets healthy, I don't want to even consider him. The fact is he is not healthy and may not ever be again. If when the time comes and they have to make a decision and you have to chose between a healthy Flynn or a damaged Manning, I really hope they will just take Flynn.

    This. Ive been in favor of Manning from day 1, if healthy, but this has to be part of it because at best Manning is a 2-3 year window. Get Manning with an incentive laden deal, Get Mario Williams or John Abraham, draft well and I think we're there IF Manning is able to be Peyton Manning.

    Healthy Manning plus Michael Bush, a few upgrades on the OL, and another decent 3rd WR and we'd be a monster.

    Not in favor of that approach, if Manning goes down, ala pennington, then the heir apparent becomes your starter

    yeah i agree if peyton comes here and we draft a qb that can learn from him for 2 or 3 years then i would be cool with this other than that i dont want peyton here.

    He would not be the "heir apparent", even tho he played at a Top 15 Qb level, which kinda shows some things about Dolphins fans.
     
  17. My oppinion is the job is his to lose. If the staff wants to bring in competetion I support that but as far as I am concerned he has earned the right to be our starter and have the opprotunity to prove last season was not a fluke. I think skeptism is fair considering Miami had one of the easiest schedules of anyone in terms of pass defenses it faced but still he had the type of year you would expect a starter to have against that schedule.

    Signing Flynn makes so much sense it probably won't happen. Would much rather have an older Manning for a couple of years than wasting a 1st round pick on Tannehill if that is the plan.

    You raise a good point Padre, and it's something I've considered. Speaking only from a fan perspective, watching Peyton Manning play in Miami would be fun. It just would be fun and interesting regardless of the outcome. Compare watching Peyton Manning playing in Miami and us not making the playoffs to watching Matt Moore/Flynn playing QB for the Dolphins and not making the playoffs. Which would you rather watch? And I gotta believe Peyton, if healthy, gives us a much better chance than either so it makes sense from a FO perspective too I think.

    That at least some fans realize that QBing is about more than stats?

    There more I think about it, if, and it's a tremendous "IF", Manning is somehow healthy when free agency begins, and I mean 100%, then I will be on board with renting for a him couple of years. A healthy Manning running this team would make us an instant contender.

    I still feel he will not be healthy this year, quite possibly ever, and would much rather go a different direction.

    I'm starting to think this will happen. I've been thinking it was possible, but now I'm feeling like it is more likely than ever. Unless Arizona does something big.

    I feel like at the end of the day if they get Manning they will be able to say flat out they tried getting a super bowl caliber QB, taking the gamble on his health. If he stays healthy they will look like geniuses, if he doesn't then nobody can really say they didn't try. If they go for Flynn or go for Weeden in the draft and they fail, this whole thing can quickly go down to 2004/2007 levels and there will be more firings. Manning buys them time. RG3 would cost way too much, and after that there isn't much faith in the talent. If Barkley had declared it would be different.

    I've thought about Tannehill, but I didn't realize until today he's barely started more games than Mark Sanchez did in college. That's scary.

    I won't count Manning out...there have been too many comebacks and miracles in sports for me to do that.

    I know this is a dream scenario but at least it would mean our team isn't ignoring the qb situation anymore. Imagine getting Peyton and he's healthy. Washington taking Flynn and Cleveland passing on RG3 and we take him at 8. Ross would get what he wanted by getting Manning and exciting the fan base and more importantly putting some butts in the seats, and RG3 could sit for 2 years and learn behind Peyton before becoming our franchise qb for the next 13 years.

    I realize it's more of a dream but it's not impossible because I have read that Cleveland isn't sold on RG3 and they could use a top WR like Blackmon.

    my earlier suggestion was that we do something very similar:
    bring Manning on board & draft Tannehill @ 8 as his understudy & immediate heir to the franchise.
    the best of the present & future in one gutsy & doable move

    I thought about him too but that's much more likely and wouldn't be a dream. I just hope if we do that were able to trade back a little and pick up a 2nd or 3rd round pick and still get Tannehill.

    I honestly don't see too many real needs for 2012:
    a pass rusher & tight end, maybe an offensive linesman. re-sign appropriately. then best on board @ pick

    I think the team is relatively flush... hopefully, the coaching dilemma is resolved

    we have one last glaring need & it is @ Franchise QB.
    fortunately, we have a unique opportunity to remedy the situation immediately & in the future:
    1) acquire an immediate contender with Manning @ the helm & go for the big brass ring in 2012
    2) while developing a franchise worthy QB (draft Tannehill @ 8) under his tutelage that can take us deep into the decade perennially for championships

    I think we can't miss with this deal, provided Manning is ready to start the season.
    If he is healthy it's a one-two punch that will serve us immediately & in later years.
