Schaub will be a starter again before Peyton.
I'm not buying that.

What "people that are catching his passes" are going to go and spread that kind of news?

Doesn't make any sense.

Maybe he is not up to speed. Maybe he never plays again.

I just don't believe that he is throwing to some guys and they go out and say those things even if true.

Lombardi is lying or someone lied to him.

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

It does beg the question: What person would (a) catch passes or be in attendance of those sessions, and then (b) leak information to Lombardi that paints #18 in a bad light?

A person would have to be crazy to do that. Because they will narrow down who it was who leaked the information. It wouldn't be difficult.

Not saying it isn;t true, just saying that if it IS true...the person who leaked it better have gotten a nice payday from NFLN because he'll never work anywhere again after having leaked sensitive information about #18. Correct?

Well, money talks and can often make lips a lot looser. But, Lombardi could just be jabbing out his butt, too.

To be honest, I tend to believe that Manning is having some difficulty with his rehab, because if he was throwing okay, I think we would see video of it. Manning needs to sell himself, to either Irsay or some other team. Hiding his progress leads me to believe that it's not going as good as he wants it to. JMO

I think this pretty much shows why Peyton's getting cut. It's the smart financial decision for the Colts, but unfortunately for them it will cost them a lot.

Quote:
The Option Treatment

The Cap treatment of the option bonus, due to its timing, is rather unique. Since it is due and payable within the 2011 League Year -- the March 8th deadline precedes the March 13th 2012 League Year opening -- the option amount is prorated into 2011 as well as future years of the contract. Thus, $5.6 million – 1/5th of the $28 million option bonus – was allocated as a Cap charge in every year of the original contract.

In the event Manning is released, the Cap charges for the option will come off the books, meaning the $5.6 million charge for 2012 will be deleted and the $5.6 million option proration amount in 2011 will then become a credit to the 2012 Cap, reducing the Colts' Cap charge on Manning by that amount.

Manning's Cap charge, if somehow the Colts exercise the option and keep him, is the following: $4 million (the amount of prorated signing bonus) PLUS $5.6 million (the amount of prorated option bonus) PLUS $7.4 million (the amount of salary) EQUALS $17 million.

So what is Manning’s 2012 Cap charge to the Colts if released?

$16 million (the amount of accelerated bonus proration) MINUS $5.6 million (the amount of credited option bonus proration) EQUALS $10.4 million.

Thus, if the Colts move on from Manning, the consequences of the contract signed five months ago will be $26.4 million in cash and $10.4 million in leftover "dead money" Cap charges.

And Manning has the chops and resume' to take any heat the hardcore Tebow-ites could dish out.

The fanbase would have to know that there's no better teacher for their boy Tebow to learn from for those two years than Manning??


And Elway would HAVE to be elated with someone under center that actually knows how to be a traditional - and effective - QB.

The only snag I see is whether Manning is willing to play outside in the cold. ...especially after being indoors the last few years.

Yeah, IMO Denver would definitely be in the Capt. Forehead sweepstakes.

Although, I think Manning playing in an outdoor stadium in Colorado is the X factor. Dude's entire career has been home in a dome, and that cannot be overlooked.
I remember having this conversation with ObsiWan, so I had to dig it up. I guess a couple of blind squirrels can find some acorns every once in awhile!

Denver just seemed like the logical, obvious choice to thinking people. And to us too.

Which begs the question. How long do you think it will be before we see video of Matt Schaub?

I'm not too optimistic, to be honest. Based upon your personal experiences and the professional perspective of CnD, I do not have the most hopeful attitude about our season opener in September when it comes to Schaub.

So I guess we're not signing Peyton....

As for Schaub, Lisfranc is a delicate fracture and we're hoping that the cartilage is forming in the joint. Stress might cause re-injury and possible arthritis.
