One thought that springs from all this, how bad is Mannings agent to have negotiated that contract now? At the time Manning could easily have held out for more security than the Colts just being able to walk away at this stage, no way they'd have been able to bank on Luck falling straight into their lap and cutting him loose after just one season.

Default Re: Solomon: If Manning on market, Texans should be first in line

He'll almost certainly be on the FA market as the colts would be idiotic to pay that 28 million when they still don't know anything; so that's not an issue imo........But there is the tiny little issue of HIM EVER BEING ABLE TO PLAY AGAIN WITH HOW HIS NECK HAS BEEN SLOW TO HEAL!!!!

The last thing we need right now, on the cusp of taking over this division, is to get bogged down with another Tony Boselli fiasco.

This is it in a nutshell. The reason why the texans run the playaction boot is because shaub is terrible when players are at his feet. He needs a perfect pocket to be effective, we all know that. The only problem I have is head,neck,or back. When dealing with those 3, its a crapshoot. In terms of the player, manning is better and will be better the next 3 yrs imo. Schaub is a manufactored kubiak production. Just from what I know about that injury, I don't think schaub will be back until mid season. The people who say that injury isnt bad for a non athletic guy is just wrong.

Sorry if we were able to find an non cap killer way to get Manning on board, and he wanted to come here to be part of the Texans I can't believe you don't take a chance on it.

How many times has Peyton killed us again and again.. I'd like to be on the other end of that for a while

Well has crazy has it might seem i been wondering this will schaub ever be the same from this foot injury will he be 100%. Come week 1. If peyton is 100% i say we make a bid cor him because lets face it peyton or schaub will only be our qb for two more years max maybe. After fhat im pretty sure the plan is to make tj yates the starter

I'd start TJ Yates with AJ and our two new WR draft picks and allow Schaub to heal During the season, I whisper "Matt, time to agree to a team friendly new contract for 2013. I see in my crystal ball a high draft pick in 2013 going for a QB. Oh there will not be a good in late first. Sorry. We luvs you Matty.

It's obvious Solomon's blog was getting very little love, so he has to write this tripe in an attempt for some attention.

Maybe it's an attempt to reel in all Dick's followers?

Default Re: Solomon: If Manning on market, Texans should be first in line

Ok I'll make the case for Manning.

Washington and Miami and NYJ are not ready to contend right now (plus they are in very competitive divisions), and Peyton doesn't have time to hope they get better. Does he want to bounce around like Favre? If it's about getting a ring and not a max contract, Texans are a perfect fit.

Great play action offense for the best play action passer in the game, great defense, stars at offensive skill positions, good O-line to protect an older immobile QB. Not to mention a weak, familiar division and he gets to go against Luck twice (i.e. motivation to prove something). Plus we could get at least a 1st round pick for Schaub. That's a great asset considering how well we draft.

But we can't risk signing Manning without his arm back to full strength. To me that's a relatively easy thing to observe (no more risky than relying on Schaub's foot). If you can see him throw at a high level before signing, the risk is probably worth it.

As for the Texans being interested, Manning's star power gets us on national TV and puts fans in the seats.

Schaub wasn't worth a 1st when he was Vick's backup, he's not worth a 1st now coming off a foot injury.

Peyton Manning is willing to create a contract that would contain no guaranteed money up front and would be incentive laden with bonuses.

I'll make the case against Manning.

1) The Texans aren't offering Peyton a contract.
2) See #1.

Btw, the Texans sell out Reliant for every game. Including preseason.

Well fine, but you can't argue that having Peyton Manning would not be a revenue boon to the organization (at least in the near term).

It's like saying, "we already have Kyle Lowry, we don't need CP3".

This thread is the definition of lame. And I did argue (successfully) that Peyton would not have an impact on revenue. You just weren't paying attention.

Peyton Manning isn't signing with the Houston Texans. Everything else in this thread is blah, blah, blah.

Im telling you now: Peyton wants hardware at this point. He will sign with a contending team for minimal base salary. I honestly believe when he gets his official release HE will contact teams not the other way around. I think he will inquire about Schaubs health and recovery.
