Sign Peyton Manning

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Nope! Why would I sign a near end of career QB to replace a near end of career QB? One hit and Payton could go down. Pay Brees and be done with it. As the OP was worded.... We can ...

Nope! Why would I sign a near end of career QB to replace a near end of career QB? One hit and Payton could go down. Pay Brees and be done with it.

As the OP was worded.... We can not afford both.

Are we actually going to let go of THE most productive QBs in the last 3 years for 5mil?

Besides..... Manning and Paton are not a good personality match... Should we pick up Caldwell too?!?!?!

I'm pretty sure that he wouldn't offer that to the Saints unless Drew was out of the picture...and I don't think he has time to wait to see how that is all gonna unfold.
There is no way Manning settles for a performance based contract. He will get a premium contract because the demand is there.

This cant really be a thread is it....... come on y'all cant be throwing Brees under the bus for this yea its pretty bad that they cant come to agreement on it and its between 5 mill. But come on ppl have yall forgot who was and still is the savior of this Franchise its DREW BREES......this talking about replacing him with Peyton Manning is by far one of the dumbest Threads on here, Brees deserves every penny of the money that hes asking for and the Saints better pay it and keep him happy...With out Brees this team would not have a Super Bowl Title and be as good as it is........

Peyton Manning can take a hike

One hit and ANY QB can go down. Manning has been cleared by all doctors, including the Colts' own neurosurgeon. They have all said that Manning faces no more of a chance of getting injured than any other QB in the league.

That said, he has zero chance of ever being a Saint as Brees will definitely be here for the remainder of his playing career.

What I would do if I were in charge - and sadly I'm not - is bring Manning in for a conversation. Feel it out. No disrespect to Drew, because if Drew doesn't want to sign his 'richest contract ever' deal that's his choice. If he is willing to play under the franchise tag at 14.whatever million then he's still my first choice.

BUT, if he's not planning to sign, then I'm at least going to have a conversation with Manning. That's just smart business.

I have mixed feelings because I haven't heard from Drew what the problem is and I haven't developed a dislike for him yet either. I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. However, Peyton would have a very strong line to protect him if he came here which I'm sure is a high priority for him.

I'm certain Peyton wants to go out a champion. He won't be able to do that with the teams that will be in pursuit of him. The Saints would be a good option for him but I don't think they will consider it.

And you won't hear from Drew what the problem is because Condon doesn't want him talking about it.

That being said.... Plug Peyton Manning into the Texans and imagine what could happen. With their running game, defense.... Scary thought of lining across from Johnson, Manning, Foster....
