Why Colts QB Peyton Manning Would Be A Disaster For Jets

By Daniel Budick

Coming into Super Bowl week much of the talk around Indianapolis will not only be focused on the game between the Giants and Patriots but on the situation regarding Peyton Manning.

The relationship between Manning and the front office is definitely unstable, as it seems war of words has sputtered between Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay. Though today Irsay took some of his comments back, as did Manning.

“I don’t think it’s in a good interest to paint the horseshoe in a negative light, I really don’t,” Irsay said. “He’s such a big part of that and everything else, but the horseshoe always comes first.”

Naturally Jets fans eyes light up when they think Peyton Manning possibly coming to New York and becoming a Jet. Lets take a deep breath here, the New York Jets didn’t finish 8-8 only because of Mark Sanchez. Even with a tough year that I will agree he had, he still threw 26 touchdowns which was a career high and threw for more yards then he has in each of his first two previous seasons.

Bringing in Peyton Manning would mean the Jets would have to gut their whole roster and basically build the team around the 36 year old quarterback who by the way didn’t play all of last season because of serious neck injuries.

    Wow, what a worthless article. The write provides hardly any insight to his claim. He basicaly says, Sanchez is decent and the Jets would have to gut their roster to obtain Peyton Manning. Well, neither of those statements are true. Sanchez will be a career back up in two seasons and the Jets would not have to gut their roster at all to get Manning, so long as they could move Sanchez, which shouldn’t be terribly difficult to do.

    Peyton would be a GREAT FIT for the JETS. Mark Sanchez Is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVERRATED, It’s PATHETIC. He will be LUCKY too even be a 3rd string QB In 2 yrs. Right now would be a GREAT TIME too UNLOAD him and get what they can If anything. The owner needs to start watching the BIG MOUTH COACH as well, he’s a BIG DISTRACTION for the Team also. Ol Rex, Is just as INMATURE as SANCHEZ. Get Peyton Jets, and he will take ya on the ride to the SUPERBOWL, IN 2013. Jets beat Green Bay 34-27…….
