This ^. While manning has never had a bad arm he has not thrown with the type of velocity or ultra accuracy or a player like Favre. Manning does well because of his ability to read the defense and put his players in the best position to take advantage of that defense. That's why you see manning making lots of throws to open receivers.

As a Steeler fan, I've got my fingers crossed that Wallace stays.
I thought the steelers gave wallace a first round tender? He won't go anywhere.

Yes, they did, but that doesn't mean he has to sign with Pittsburgh. We can match any other offers he gets, but if he does choose to sign elsewhere, we'd get that teams 1st round pick in return.

So while it's unlikely that he leaves, he still has the freedom to sign with another team if he wants.

ok that's what I thought. I know wallace is a great receiver and that stats say he'd probably be better on a few other teams I doubt anybody will burn up a first round pick for him. I'd say he's worth a second at most and then its still a question mark. I think you'll keep him.

Did you just use "ultra accuracy" and "Favre" in the same sentence?

I didn't say favre was a good decision maker. Favre leaned on his ability to put the ball on a dime faster than players could react to make up for his inability to make good football decisions. Manning is the reverse basically.

Four days into free agency and the NY Yankees have made more moves than the Jets.

Word on Twitter is that Tannenbaum has been in negotiations with Joe Namath and Mark Gastineau.

And Kenny O'Brien has already turned down an offer to become Mark Sanchez' backup.

Somewhere, Alex Smith is like, "oh come on!" Manning in SF would be interesting indeed. SF's field goal offense was definitely its weak point, and even though Smith was much improved, he still isn't elite.

its a great idea since smith isn't under contract yet and it would make them a favorite in the NFC. the only thing holding them back is being in the NFC as far as I'm concerned.

That's because you can't spell elite without ELI.

You have the Yankees, no one gets all the prizes.

I don't know how Peyton Manning passes up the 49ers in favor of the Titans just so he can potentially play his brother in the Super Bowl. Ironically, if he chooses the Titans, his chances of getting to the big game totally plummet.

Manning would favor the titans because he went to college at Tennessee and by all accounts likes the state. If he went to the 49ers he'd have a great chance to get back to the Super Bowl though.

He's probably going to have a decision by this time next.

Overrated or not, the Cowboys will struggle to find a #3 receiver with his ability. He stepped up big last year when injuries took down Austin and Bryant. Romo and Robinson had good chemistry. I get it that he took the payday, but he will probably struggle in Jacksonville, unless Gabbert shows huge improvement.

He'll definitely struggle in jacksonville. every year there's a handful of guys that play well above their expectations and get tons of press and then never come close to the same performance again.
