2012-2013 NFL Football Thread

Hello! With Peyton Mannings release from the Colts it's a good time to start thinking about the upcoming season. Where do you think he'll end up? Who will contend this year? Who will be this year's bottom dwellers? What moves are your favorite teams making??? Have at it boys!

I think he'll grab some Snyder bucks in Washington. As a Jet fan, I don't want to see him end up in Miami and I certainly hope Woody Johnson still has fresh memories of Brett Favre since the NY press seems to think he'll make a run at him.

We should merge the last few posts of the other thread because we were just talking about this..

Looks like the Seahawks, Dolphins, and Cardinals will all try throwing money at him as well.

And I'm with you..I think the NY Media is trying to push for him - but even if they wanted him, I'm not sure they would have the bucks anyway.

I actually see him landing in NY. What a story that would be with both Mannings in the same market. Also Rex needs to make a splash to keep his job so I see him pushing for it to happen

According to Twitter, they've already made contact - and I don't pretend to be an expert on cap space and all the financials - but he would be able to get a bigger pay day elsewhere...so we'll see what happens.

I think it's a long shot though.

Edit: and thanks for changing that ridiculous sig.

If they go after him, Sanchez is done. They can free up $9 million if they cut him.

I don't think money is the issue for Payton. I have heard he wants to go someplace where he has a chance to win another Super Bowl.

From what I hear, no way hes coming to Washington. Id love to see him come to the Cowboys, but thats probably not going to happen either. Anyway, the rumors are the Jets, Texans, and Titans and maybe a few others are the ones wanting him. I could see him going to the Titans just because of his roots there.

Posting in this topic too...

He'll stay in the AFC. Redskins will trade up for RG3, Cardinals will go for Matt Flynn. AFC East is my guess for Manning. Either Miami or NY. If it's NY, Sanchez might be taking a one way flight to Miami. My gut says Peyton will be in Miami though.

With the Colts releasing Manning, what kind of cap hit will they take?

My dream is he goes to the Jets and we get a Manning Bowl in 2014, but as I said, just a dream.

If he doesn't get a contract that he likes in the AFC, I see him retiring and becoming a coach.

As a Colts fan it's mighty sad to see Manning gone from the Colts. End of an era. Unfortunately I think it makes sense strategically, $28m for one player and what could potentially be another season on the bench is just too much. Last season showcased many places that the money saved on Manning could be spent to massively improve the team as a whole.

As far as where Manning winds up...my money is on Miami. Cap room, climate, reasonably solid team with a disastrous QB situation. Sounds like a winner to me. Plus Manning already has a house in Miami, which makes it all the more interesting for him. They also have some room and could bring in Reggie Wayne to keep the duo alive. Arizona could be in the mix, he has some connections there and they have a climate controlled stadium. The Jets should remember Favre and take that as a warning. I really don't see him in New York anyhow...Rex Ryan is a jackass and the Jets are a circus, plus it's clear that Eli owns that stadium now and it would pit them against each other at some level. I can only imagine the covers the Post would come up with with both Mannings in town.

My dream situation.

Peyton signs with Jets. In 2014 the Jets and Giants go to the SuperBowl at the Meadowlands. NYC Superbowl in NYC( ok NJ lol). Both teams in their home stadium. That will be a game to watch.

Manning will be a Redskin by the end of the month, along with Randy Moss. Washington D.C. is where NFL careers go to die.

not being a hater but I personally think we've seen the last superbowl with a Manning for a very long time

Wow nobody seems to be giving ATL a chance, every analyst online, talking head on tv and everyone I've spoken to is convinced SF is going to run away with this thing. Even in Vegas the public is pounding the Niners, the line moved from -3 to -3.5 to -4 and that hasn't deterred people from betting SF heavy...

I do feel like SF has the best all around team here and kapernick is going to be tough to stop on the indoor turf but.... I don't think ATL is going to lay down at home. SF played an amazing game last week from both sides of the ball, it's tough to play at that level 2 weeks in a row against quality opponents especially in the playoffs...... Plus you have to think that Atlanta's defensive coordinator didn't sleep this week coming up with a way to contain kapernick after GB didn't seem to have an answer for him

All that being said I still like SF, but don't expect it to be the cakewalk everyone is expecting it to be.

I wasn't surprised because he needs his payday. Giants couldn't afford to pay his bonuses or the salary he wants and he's at the age where loyalty and restructuring a deal is a bad idea for him.

Hopefully he'll get a good deal outside NFC East, he is a really great running back when behind a great o-line. Ours wasn't very good last season.

Making cap room by restructuring. Contracts don't seem to mean a thing to teams and owners though. For his sake, I hope he got a lot of money up front!

Restructuring for cap room... are they trying to make room for another QB so he can be the backup? Because if not, I don't see why you would ever give Sanchez another 3 years and handicap yourself with a crap QB for the next 5.

Jets had $11.75 million invested in Sanchez in 2012 ($8.5m base + $3.25m roster bonus) and $6 million in 2013 ($4.5m & $1.5m). Total $17.75 million.

So they basically added $2.75 million guaranteed for 3 additional years.
