Chiefs coach indicates interest in Manning
Question of the Day
Even fans are becoming lobbyists.
In Miami and Nashville, Tenn., there are billboards trying to persuade team officials to sign Manning, but not everyone is listening.
“I understand it from a fan’s perspective,” Titans general manager Ruston Webster said. “But I’d tell them we like our guys, and you’ve got to be patient. We’ve got a good quarterback situation and it’s improved a lot since last year.”
Where else could Manning go?
Possibly Arizona, where coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves did nothing this week to dissuade speculation over their interest.
“I think we are happy with what we have (at quarterback), but as Coach Whisenhunt just said, we’re about opportunities to get better,” Graves said. “This is a competitive game, and we want to get better. If we can, so be it. But right now we believe we have an outstanding group of quarterbacks, and we’re preparing to play with that group of quarterbacks.”
It’s also unclear what the Colts will do.
The top two quarterbacks in this year’s draft, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, both said Friday they would be willing to sit behind Manning in 2012 if that’s what Indy chooses to do. And in a Twitter post Saturday, Irsay wrote that he and Manning met in person this week and have been meeting frequently over the past month.
Manning has said he’d be willing to redo the five-year, $90 million contract he signed in July to make it more palatable for him to stay.
“I don’t think it has to be a long-term solution (at quarterback). I think you can look at a short-term solution. Obviously, you’d like a long-term solution. Or you can try to get both,” Ireland said. “You’ve got to try to help this team win today and look to the future. It’s my job to try to build a team for today and the future. Joe’s responsibility is to try to win right now with a mind on the future as well.”
