Report: Manning doesn't want to play for Skins

26 posts in this topic

Appearing on SportsCenter Thursday, ESPN 980 Washington's Chris Russell said he's "hearing" free agent Peyton Manning does not want to play for the Redskins and has already informed people in the building.

"A couple of different sources inside the organization have told me that Manning's camp made it pretty clear to Redskins officials he doesn't want to come here," said Russell. "... Unless that changes -- and I'm taking my sources at their word -- I don't think Manning's coming to D.C." The Redskins had hoped to make an aggressive offer to Manning, per the Washington Post, but there won't be much they can do if the feeling isn't mutual.

I don't know how North Carolina Skins fans continue to support this horrible team.

This is the wrong forum for this. Anyways, he will most likely go to an AFC team unless it is Arizona.

He doesn't fit Shanahan's offense. When will people accept that?

No one fits that offense.

One thing that Marshall Faulk said on NFLN yesterday that I hadn't ever really thought about and it actually shed a lot of light on Eli's situation when he was drafted...

Marshall said you can go ahead and rule out any and all NFC teams because Peyton doesn't want to do anything to deprive Eli of the opportunity to get to the Superbowl. He said they look at it like the Harbaughs... They don't want to do anything to impede the other from getting there... Now, once they get there, it's a great time for the family because someone is going to win it, and they're happy with that.

He said this was the main reason Eli refused to go to San Diego and asked them not to pick him. Not because he thought NY was any better of a football organizaiton or city, but because Archie didn't want them having to compete against each other in the same conference and possibly stop one another from reaching the Super Bowl.

With the exception being John Elway.

If true that's pretty arrogant sh1t. But I guess that's why they are in the NFL.

    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
    • Congrats man!!! Whatever makes you feel better.   For me it's Vitamin D and smoking some of God's natural medicine everyday.
    • I wanted Noel but Zeller got an extension and the Sixers traded him for peanuts. Nobody knew what Giannis would become so I can't really blame Cho for that one. Gobert wasn't even close to the conversation. He was the 27th pick in the draft.  I think Cho actually did well in that draft. Anthony Bennett, Victor Oladipo, Otto Porter, Zeller, Alex Lin, Noel, Ben McLemore, Kentavious C. Pope, Trey Burke, CJ McCollum.  Out of the top 10, most people were thinking Lin, Noel, McLemore, Bennett. We didn't think Oladipo would be  there but most of us wanted one of those 4. Yeah, out of those 4 give me Zeller.
