Poll: It's Manning Mania! Where will he go?

It amazes me that a 35-year-old quarterback, who missed a year of football and has had four recent neck surgeries, can create so much buzz in the football world. It really blows my mind that a lot of Redskin fans want him to come to Washington, even though we witnessed the collapse of two other former pro bowl quarterbacks, Mark Brunell and Donovan McNabb. For every fan that wants to see Peyton Manning in burgundy and gold, there are five more who are tired of watching guys who used to be good crash and burn when they become Redskins. If Manning lines up under center for Washington in 2012, does anyone believe he’ll be able to handle hits from DeMarcus Ware and Jason Pierre-Paul? Once the pain in Peyton’s neck returns, the pain in Redskins fans’  hearts will return as we watch Rex Grossman jog onto the field for a repeat of his 2011 antics. No thanks. There have been reports that Peyton doesn’t want to play in Washington. Fine with me. Those reports have been denied by Manning’s people, but many believe they’re just trying to keep his price high. Owners are likely to offer bigger money if they think they’re competing with Daniel Snyder. Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have done a good job of making the Redskins roster younger, and even if he has a good year or two left in him, adding Peyton Manning would just be a step in the wrong direction. We need a young, fresh quarterback who can get away from the NFC East pass rushers. Preferably, one who wore green and the number 10 in college. That being said, where do you believe Peyton will end up?
