Bottom line, don't think Peyton Manning is untradable. When it comes down to it, the NFL is a business and Jim Irsay will do what he thinks is best for the future of his organization. The question is, who will go after the Manning the hardest? McNabb was a mistake, but bringing Manning to DC would be a perfect move for the Skins. But what would we have to give up? Definitely our first rounder this year, and hopefully nothing more than a 2nd rounder in 2013, considering Snyder would be saving the Colts a cool $28 million. For the record, it Manning came to DC, I would spend the next few months learning how to do a standing back flip just so I could celebrate the right way. Peyton Manning starting at QB the next 3 years and training a young quarterback to play as he does? The only way that's a bad idea is if we can't get a QB in the first round. Here's three different scenario's that I could see going down, assuming we earn a top 5 pick:
Scenario 1: Skins get Manning
2012 1st round pick
2013 2nd round pick
2012 3rd round pick
Landry Jones in the 2nd round
Scenario 2: Skins use first pick on a QB
Robert Griffin (assuming he enters the draft, which I'm sure he will) or Matt Barkley of USC. For the record I am not a Barkley fan. All I see is Matt Leinart 2.0
Scenario 3: Skins use first pick on OL
-Matt Kalil of USC. Put him on the left side, move Trent Williams to the right side.
-Draft either Landry Jones of Oklahoma or Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State.
All 3 scenarios have their risks and rewards. The safest scenario seems like number 2, but the third one would give us two great offensive tackles for the next 10 years. Right now the first scenario is certainly the most risky, but seems right up Daniel Snyder's alley doesn't it?
What do you guys think? Or do you have your own scenario? Bring in the comments!
