PFT:skins considering peyton,flynn,orton
 
Most of us Redskins fans knew this,but looks like it has some truth behind the rumors finally.

This is a non-story. Of course they are talking about the top potential free agent QBs. It would be a story if we had decided to target one of them and were willing to break the bank. But that's not the case, so: no story.

This may be non news but I got to wonder if all this press about kyle's control issues, whether real or not, will hurt our chances to attract someone. When Shanahan started here the last thing I expected was a story line 2 years later that QBs might not want to come here because of Kyle.

Of course, personally I hope it does hurt our chances to get peyton because I would not support that move.

Here's a similar story with the focus on Orton...

Sounds like Orton and Rex do not get along so if we do sign Orton, Rex is likely gone. I know Orton isnt the QB most of us want but he would be an upgrade over Rex and would likely mean we wouldnt re-sign Rex(so thats good news ;)). Im not thrilled about our disinterest in Flynn and Im not sure why we would prefer Orton over him but if we can get Tannenhill or maybe even Weeden it could go a long way towards filling in the depth of the roster by not losing multiple draft picks in a trade up scenario.

And in regards to Peyton I see him ending up in Miami, he and the Mrs. already own a beach house there and being a dome QB I imagine he'd prefer Miami's weather. Plus Ross is supposedly enamored with signing him. I see Peyton landing there and Flynn likely going to either Seattle or Cleveland. And for the record I still think we need a franchise caliber signal caller and really like RGIII a lot I just dont want to trade the farm to draft him.

I don't know how realistic that is, but if flynn only gets that kind of money we are crazy not to go after him even if we also go after rg3.

Sounds like Ross has a snyder style man crush on peyton.

Agreed, but it doesnt seem like many have that high of an opinion of him, I mean even his former OC in Miami doesnt seem overly interested in signing him. I like the guy better than Orton but evidently Shanny doesnt.

Exactly why i see Peyton signing there, he wants a deal done and done quickly and Miami is gonna go after him hard, plus they do have a couple of play makers in Bush and Marshall.

This isn't even news. It just means the FO is being smart and systematic. Okay we, need a QB, let's make a list of EVERY option as a starting point, and do our dilligence on each one so we are prepared for any and all eventualities. That's all this means, nothing more.

Yeah, my thing with Orton is that I feel like he has a pretty clear ceiling. He would be a good game manager type qb that keeps us in games, but not much more. Picking him up a couple years ago would have been a good idea, but at this point it would feel more like a lateral move to me than a real upgrade. I could swallow orton and a project qb, but if we pick up orton without picking up one the QBs on the board after RG3 I would be very disappointed.

By the way, hope everyone enjoys the game today...

WinnpegSkinsFan 02-05-2012 01:58 PM

I think we will sign Orton and draft either RGIII or Tannehill. Manning would be just a stopgap and a viable solution for this team, IMO. Manning to Miami seems to make more sense anyway.
