Kristian Dyer and Bart Hubbuch are in Atlantic City for the Maxwell Awards and both have been speaking with Archie Manning, the father of Peyton. Normally I wouldn’t care about this subject ANY LONGER but Bart put out a tweet that Mark Sanchez would be ok with Peyton Manning on the team and would not demand a trade. Hogwash.
Ron Jaworski tells me the Jets “absolutely” should pursue Manning and shouldn’t worry whether Sanchez is affected or not.

Jaworski added that Sanchez would be OK with adding Manning and wouldn’t demand a trade. I strongly disagreed with him on that.

Archie said that over “the last couple years” Peyton has seen “four of the top neurosurgeons in America.” #NFL3/2/12 1:02 PM
Archie Manning on Peyton: “He certainly looks fine as far as throwing and velocity on the ball. He hasn’t had any setbacks throwing.” #NFL3/2/12 12:43 PM
I find it very hard to believe that Mark Sanchez would be ok with Peyton Manning joining the Jets AND the fact that we would not demand a trade. Keep in mind this quote is coming from Ron Jaworski who says the Jets MUST “Absolutely” pursue Manning and not worry about the ill affects to Sanchez.
Um, ok Ron, I agree if the 1. The Jets are looking for a short term solution where Peyton will play at most 2-3 years, and 2. The Mark Sanchez Science Project is over. Once you bring in Manning, Sanchez is gone whether that means he’s on the team or not. You’ll never get him playing at a high level of play again, and worst, he’ll go to another team, have success and win a super bowl. That would absolutely kill me.
Also, I’ll say it again. If the Jets are going to “GROUND AND POUND” the ball, you don’t bring in Peyton Manning. Sigh. Can the media please stop this Manning talk. Peyton will not be on the Jets.
