Manning Would Be A Disaster For Jets

Coming into Super Bowl week much of the talk around Indianapolis will not only be focused on the game between the Giants and Patriots but on the situation regarding Peyton Manning.

The relationship between Manning and the front office is definitely unstable, as it seems war of words has sputtered between Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay. Though today Irsay took some of his comments back, as did Manning.

“I don’t think it’s in a good interest to paint the horseshoe in a negative light, I really don’t,” Irsay said. “He’s such a big part of that and everything else, but the horseshoe always comes first.”

Naturally Jets fans eyes light up when they think Peyton Manning possibly coming to New York and becoming a Jet. Lets take a deep breath here, the New York Jets didn’t finish 8-8 only because of Mark Sanchez. Even with a tough year that I will agree he had, he still threw 26 touchdowns which was a career high and threw for more yards then he has in each of his first two previous seasons.

Bringing in Peyton Manning would mean the Jets would have to gut their whole roster and basically build the team around the 36 year old quarterback who by the way didn’t play all of last season because of serious neck injuries.

The Jets have bigger issues on their team believe it or not, besides quarterback. Linebacker, safety and defensive end are top priorities. These were the reasons why the Jets didn’t make the playoffs for the first time under Rex Ryan. They were slow on defense all year and couldn’t tackle in the open field.

Obviously Sanchez needs to improve but a lot of that goes to the offense he was in under Schottenheimer and now that Sparano is here, Sanchez deserves a chance to preform under a new system.

Which brings up another point with Sparano in to run the offense, Manning coming in would contradict everything the Jets want to do in running the football and being physical. Any team that brings in Peyton has to also understand that his offense that he’s run for the last 14 years comes with him.

There is just too much risk in bringing in Manning if this was 6 years ago and Manning was healthy no brannier, but the fact that if this move doesn’t work out it can sets the Jets back 2-4 years is too much of a risk for the Jets to take considering they want to be contenders every year.

    The Jets did not miss the playoffs because of their defense lol you can’t win scoring like 10-14 points a game. Jets need a running game, and a vastly improved receiving corps. Sanchez gets bashed, but it’s not his fault he had an old LT and a sub-par Greene as his running options and Burress and Holmes as his best receiving options. Give the guy the tools and he can be successful.
