Ouch... that one hurt.


Amid all the hype we still don't know if Manning will recover fully. Will he be the same passer he was before?

Physically, probably not. But a beat up Manning is still a top tier QB in the NFL, IMO. Given Manning's football IQ I think he can drop off physically much more than most QBs and still be effective. The Colts w/o Manning were abysmal last year so I think Manning going to a team that's already good w/o him gives him even more margin of error in terms of athletic performance. That's no guarantee of course because he still has to mesh w/his new teammates and coaches but I think the odds of Denver winning their division just went up a ton. W/that being said, the Chargers have given Manning issues in the past so we'll see if they still have his number in blue & orange.

So what happens to Denver when they trade Tebow and then Manning gets sacked and re-aggravates the neck injury?

They'll get a good backup QB who can play pro football rather than the college game...

True, but if you had both on your team then you messed up the draft or are playing with people who don't have a clue.

Also per @AdamSchefter on twitter:

"Sean Payton suspended one year. Mickey Loomis 8 game and $500,000 fine. Saints fined $500,000 and a second round pick in 2012 and 2013."

So who's the new backup in Denver ? Surely Elway isn't putting all his eggs in one basket with Manning.


Oh yea. Drew Brees is now at the bottom of my fantasy draft list. hehe

Glad to see Goodell lower the hammer on these people. I think Williams should be banned for life.

How does suspending the gm for 8 games do anything to hurt him? His job is the draft, free agency and keeping players on/off the roster. Not being at a game is meaningless unless his suspension starts with Sean Payton's on April 1st. I don't understand that part.

Maybe the Jets can use a rotating QB scheme like some teams do with running backs.

Wouldn't that be fun.

I think it is more symbolical of the commish saying, nobody is immuned.

Well, he does forfeit his pay during the suspension, which is probably a pretty big hit.

They had a $10,000 bounty for taking out Rodgers.

That pisses me off.

Doesn't look good when your own players are questioning what the front office is doing.

That's a bit extreme. This kind of thing has most likely been going on at different levels on every team in the league. Somehow the Saints were just the first to get leaked to the press.

Maybe Brett Favre will unretire again. Elway could bring him in to be Manning's backup. Bristol, CT would implode.

This is the same thing as spy gate, the Saints will be made an example of and the other teams better take notice.
