Rumor: Peyton Manning To The Jets?

Recommended Posts

Guaranteed he says, "thanks but, no thanks"...like everyone else.  Except this giant piece of sh*t, Adam Gase.

Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson wants a “great strategic thinker” to run the football operation. He needs someone who can work with coach Adam Gase. And at the intersection possibly resides one and only one name.

Peyton Manning.

Rumors are flying within league circles that the Jets may make a run at the future Hall of Fame quarterback who has periodically been linked to NFL management possibilities. And Gase, who worked with Manning in Denver, possibly would be one of the few guys who could draw Manning back into football.

Manning wouldn’t be a traditional G.M., but Johnson has made it clear that he’s not looking for a traditional G.M.

“It’s more than a talent-evaluation guy,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I want a great manager, a communicator, who can collaborate well with the building. I’m convinced we’re going to find that person.”

Manning definitely would be that person. But it’s unknown whether Manning would be interested in being that person. If he is, it would fulfill a match more than 20 years in the making; in 1997, Manning supposedly would have left Tennessee early if he had an assurance that the Jets would make him the first overall pick in the draft.

Getting Manning also would go a long way toward removing the current stink of dysfunction enveloping the Jets, even if that stink is more than a little overblown.

Would bring a sense of respectability to the Jets they haven’t had since Parcells. But Peyton has already burned us twice in the last 20 years. Maybe 3rd times a charm?

Could we really be this lucky? For once?

What the hell are you talking about? Peyton Manning has avoided this franchise like the plague his entire career. Just because he’s the only person on the planet that the media is convince Gase doesn’t hate has nothing too do with him coming here. He’s too busy making money in commercials.

They might as well hire him. No one else is going to want this job. Thats why I mentioned Tanny the other day. Its gotta be someone out of left field or someone down on their luck and looking for a chance to complete a hail mary and prove themselves.

Dude he’s never scouted or had FO experience in his life. I understand who he is but that doesn’t mean he’ll make a great talent evaluator or GM for that matter. Now I’d love to have him in our building in SOME kind of role if he’d accept that. 

But hell no to GM.

Hey, at least he wouldn't de-value the offensive line like the last bum... what was his name again?

I kidding mentioned this in the original Macc fired thread.

OH boy, this would fit perfect for the Johnson's.   If the top prospect, Douglas,  turns the Jets down, Get ready for some BIG hype.

LOL, Can't wait

Why on God's green earth would Manning want anything to do with the Jets GM job? 

Are you kidding me?  Manning would love being a GM in NYC

I’m thinking if this rumor is legit, Joe Douglas already turned them down and now they are trying to make a flashy plan b.

Remember when he was leaving the Colts and he wouldn’t even take a call from the Jets and Woody had to say the Jets “were never interested” and they had to give Mark Sanchez a cool $50 mil extension to make it up to him?

If Douglas turned them down, the Eagles would have announced that already.
