Redskins 2012: Manning’s arm now the issue

 

As the 2012 NFL off-season kicks off, so do the rumors. One of the biggest rumors so far is Peyton Manning will be released from the Colts and picked up by the Redskins. Some believe it, and some won’t take it for a second. Despite all of the talk, new reports around Indy are breaking, saying that although Manning’s neck is much better, his arm is now the biggest concern. The future Hall of Famer is reportedly lacking zip on his throwing arm, something that helps Peyton rise above competition. But these reports are not yet confirmed.

On Thursday, former Colts vice chairman Bill Polian spoke with ESPN’s
Pardon the Interruption, and had this to say about Peyton’s arm strength from observing in December:

It’s marked  from where he was back in September. He threw it accurately, he threw it with a good, tight spiral, and he threw it with velocity.

Generally, he looked like a pretty confident quarterback out there.

 

 Right now I think I trust the word of Bill Polain more than that of reports. So what does this mean for the Redskins? Will they still want to pick him up if his arm lacks the intensity it is known for? Personally, I believe the reports are true. That DOESN’T mean that he can’t recover within the next 6 months. So with all of that being said, I am still sticking to my prediction that Manning will end up in D.C. Like it or not Redskins Nation, he is the best option for us… right now.

Let me know your opinions! What do you think ‘Skins fans?
