Give Miami Dolphins fans credit….we’re passionate fans! Remember the banner that flew above Sun Life Stadium before the season finale against the Jets? The one that called for Stephen Ross to fire Jeff Ireland? You remember! The latest public display comes in the form of a billboard on 595. The website ManningToMiami sponsored the below billboard to show how much they want Peyton Manning to come to Dolphins:
From what we can gather, more Dolphins fans would prefer that the Dolphins sign Matt Flynn and forego the injury risk that Peyton Manning would bring. Especially considering Peyton hasn’t been throwing the ball more than 25 yards, it’s hard to argue. But still, there is a portion of the fan base that is holding out hope that the Dolphins will sign Peyton Manning and he will regain his Hall of Fame form. I think every Dolphins fan out there would sign for Peyton Manning today if he was going to be 100% healthy.
As we’ve said before, if you are going to get Peyton Manning, you need an insurance policy beyond Matt Moore. We think that the Dolphins should select a young QB in the draft (say, the 2nd round, like Tannehill if he lasts that long) to develop behind Manning. Best Case Scenario, Manning will play another 3 years, maybe 4 if you’re lucky. Then, you have a QB that is ready to step in and has learned from a Hall of Fame QB.
