We Should Trade Manning For Picks!

Recommended Posts

Completely agree. I have said this very thing several times in this thread. Those who believe that Manning would bring a wealth of high picks because he is Manning are completely overlooking the things you said. He is old, put together with duct tape and costs a boat load - who would give anything substantial in return for a QB with that current resume?

He would definitely win games for whoever took him, but at what cost and for how long?

He's basically an anomaly: both untouchable and untradeable

Trading Manning for picks is as dumb as trading Luck for picks. We keep both. and the colts win another superbowl with Manning, and Luck learns behind him for his last 2 years, but does clean-up duty to lessen Mannings load during games.. plus gives Luck some experience and be ready in 2 years to take over. This is the best strategy for us, if only we could be so fortunate for it to happen.

    • As long as we are competitive in this game and execute our offensive and defensive schemes, basically looking like we have a plan, I'm happy. Big test.
    • We don't have the tiebreaker over the Marlins or Reds. We need to finish 1 game better than both to get in. No matter what happens, the Cubs have brought us excitement again. 2021 and 2022 were a disaster. We are in this thing with 10 games to go. All you can ask for. As of now, ESPN is showing we have a 45% chance to make the playoffs. Not bad odds. 
    • Seen the news tonight and the Bears making headlines first for their DC stepping down for health reasons and QB Justin Fields blaming coaching for his poor performance.  Looks like the Bears organization on the verge of major changes come end of season.   I also realize it's way too early to look ahead to the draft for next year, but Arizona has really set themselves up nicely for the first three rounds.  With all the draftees to enter this year I would love to have additional pick(s) in round 3 as well.  The Lions looking like a good trade partner to drop back with in round 2.  Do still like the idea of doubling up on first round draft picks plus add an additional pick in round three.  Our franchise keen on building this team through the draft. 
    • Wrong Hunt my friend.   Was actually talking about Dolphin's offensive lineman Robert Hunt who plays RG and will be an upcoming free agent who has been playing very well as potentially an option if he chose to hit the free agency market.  After the first two weeks Fries has been holding his own which is awesome and can potentially scratch Robert Hunt's name off the list.   As for Zak Moss realize his value going forward which is why he is high on the list to be resigned while Deon Jackson is a cut candidate.  Keep tabs on RB DeeJay Dallas from the Seahawks.  Reminds me of Zak Moss and has nearly identical stat production.    If we had to look at the NFL draft for a future RB look up Quinshon Judkins (Ole Miss).  Believe he is a sophomore this year and probably not eligible for the draft but check out some of his accolades from college.  2022 PFF TOW 9 honors had 14 broken tackles against Texas A&M, 5 breakaway runs of 15+ yards in company with likes of Derick Henry, Alvin Kamara and Chuba Hubbard.  Judkins came to Ole Miss as just a three-star recruit but, like Will Johnson at No. 21, dominated in Year 1.  He ranked in the top 10 in college football in rushing yards (1,567), rushing touchdowns (16), yards after contact (929) and forced missed tackles (76). Judkins also moved the chains on 91 of his attempts last year, placing fourth among FBS running backs.   Another college standout at RB was Jaydn Ott (Cal) - sophomore.  In 2022 after first 4 weeks, he owned the highest rushing grade in FBS 94.4 – 8.1 yards per attempt.   Ott finished off 2022 season with 897 rushing yards averaging 5.3 yards per carry and 8 rushing touchdowns.  He also caught 46 passes for 321 yards and added 3 more touchdowns as a receiver.  After first two games this season Ott already has 270 rushing yards and 3 rushing touchdowns.   If we have to address running back this offseason the top choice to enter the draft might be Bucky Irving (Oregon).  Irving was one of the most electric backs in the country last year. Now a junior, but as a sophomore he forced a missed tackle on 43% of his attempts, which ranked second in the country. It was also the fifth-best single-season mark since PFF began charting college football in 2014.  First three games Irvin is averaging 8.0 yards per carry, 216 yards on 27 carries and scored three touchdowns.
