According to reports, The Indianapolis Colts have fired Jim Caldwell. While it’s unfortunate, coach Caldwell is an example of what happens when you don’t prepare for the worst.
Collins was nothing for a backup, the team had nobody to rally around. Communication on the field was horrible.However, this also leaves Peyton Manning without a coach that knows him all too well, along with his situation.
Will this firing mean that Peyton’s not too far from the exit doors himself? And if so? Where?
I know a lot of you have read the rumors about how the Redskins should try and pick up Manning. I’m going to tell you why that’s a bad idea.
First of all, you can’t ignore the neck injury. No matter how many operations he has it will never be 100 percent. There’s a good chance that he could come to the team and get injured in Week 2. That will make the quarterback situation even worse.
Second, you’ve got to consider this is a man who has been displaced by his injuries a whole season. Are we really willing to wait for him to get his groove back to carry a team like the Redskins. Hey, I feel for him, but when it comes to the Redskins and their progress, my patience is very, very short.
Third, consider the fact that the Washington Redskins’ Offensive line cannot afford to have Peyton Manning in the pocket. Why?
My goodness, do I really have to explain that?
Maybe for you non-Redskins fans I should.
If you take a look at the past couple of years, the Redskins Offensive line has allowed for a total of 130 sacks (37 on McNabb, 43 on Campbell, 34 total on Grossman, and 16 on Beck). These numbers are too dangerous for a man like Manning to consider the Redskins.
Also consider the fact that Peyton Manning was sacked a total of 24 times…in two years.
Forget the stats, the history, and consider the man you see before you now. The person who wowed Colts fans before, has left the building, and he should not darken the doors of the Redskins Training Camp.
I don’t want to be “that guy” that puts it out there like this, but any Redskins fan knows what we need, and they’ll agree its not Peyton Manning.
The defense rests its case.
