Manning means a lot of money in Miami

On Friday’s PFT Live, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald and WFTL in Fort Lauderdale joined PFT Live to discuss the all-in pursuit of Peyton Manning by the Dolphins.

We discussed plenty of angles to the attempt by owner Stephen Ross to make the kind of splash that will fill up SunLife Stadium on a regular basis.

And Armando scoffed at the report that Manning views the media scrutiny as a potential turnoff.

  1. for the first time i agree with armando, he loves the media. Like he wouldn’t have this media no matter what team he was linked to.

  2. How does adding manning fly in the face of building through the draft? You just use your 1st pick on another position instead, knowing a replacement will be needed in 3 or 4 years.

  3. Money press and having it his way wont be the problem….

    the problem will be that Miami’s oline was 29th or worse in hits on qb, qb knockdowns, and sacks allowed last season….

    and Peyton is definitely thinking about that tonight.

  4. perhaps he’s “scared of the media” because he knows he can’t throw and has to act otherwise, in order to appeal to a team all without them finding out

  5. “wwwmattcom says: Sounds like a worse idea than extending Sanchez.”

    There exists no idea worse than extending Sanchez. None. It is a worse idea than New Coke.

  6. Let’s see Peyton throw first before u throw cash at him, people say the Colts are crazy to release him. But maybe they know something that these bozo teams chasing him will find out soon. That Peyton is damaged goods!! Fans u better hope your team isn’t the one he picks

  7. Q: When was the last time a 36 1/2 year old QB who hadn’t played in 18 months, who had had corrective neck surgery twice, whose older brother never could play football BECAUSE of neck problems and whose record in the playoffs is below .500 ever went to a BRAND NEW team and was a success?

    A: Never

    “wwwmattcom says: Sounds like a worse idea than extending Sanchez.”

    There exists no idea worse than extending Sanchez. None. It is a worse idea than New Coke.

    I know right, such a horrible idea saving 6.4 million against this years cap, with a 2 year guaranteed front loaded deal. There is no guaranteed money after 2013, so the Jets are not financially beholden to Sanchez after the next two seasons but still have him under contract through 2016. Read b4 you type, you just make yourself look stupid, not the Jets like you intended

  9. Miami would be better off flushing the money down the toilet rather than signing Manning. It would be less painful than being conned and taken advantage of. He can’t throw anymore.

  10. Yeah except people in Miami don’t give a flying flip about sports. Ever seen what Miami Heat “sellout” crowds look like? It’s pretty embarrassing and they have the highest concentration of talent in the NBA.

  11. They f’d up the Harbaugh deal, they f’d up the Jeff Fisher deal…with LeBron coming to Miami, and all that star power down there, Peyton will be looking at 100 million…he will be the highest paid player in NFL history – the Cardinals, Chiefs are notoriously frugal.

    The Dolphins have been punked by Brady for years…(aside from that wildcat upset a couple of years ago).

    Peyton signing will mean “Day of the Dolphin” for real.

  12. Dear baby Jesus please help my phins with manning or somebody anybody we could use some help thank you sincerely a true die hard fan

  13. Obviously “boilerup” has no clue about the Heat crowds. It’s only sold out every game, “stupid”. Go back into your “hole”, and wish you were a fan of a decent team.

  14. It’d be a shame for him to get a 3-4 year contract with $60 million only to find out the world blows up in 10 months.

    A: Never………..Great point !!….but… Manning has a cult following to whom he can never do wrong and will forever be productive …regardless of what the truth may prove to be ! I think this is one huge financial risk !!…yes …it could backfire and be very costly !!

  16. Nobody wants to play for or coach the Dolphins. How many times is Ross going to get slapped before he sells the team to someone who has a clue? This is coming from a Lions fan…when we can laugh at you, then you know you’ve got issues.

    As for the Sanchise, the only thing dumber than extending is contract would be to hire Tony Sparano as his OC. Oh, wait a minute…
