Wow! Now Sally Jenkins jumps on the Peyton Manning to the Redskins bandwagon.
Jenkins has been one of The Washington Post's severest critics of Daniel Snyder's habit of signing free agents with big name recognition to restore the Redskins' winning ways. And yet...
"This is one instance in which Dan Snyder needs to be the Dan Snyder we used to know, the check-writer with a signature on the bottom flashier than a fountain," writes Jenkins today. "This isn’t some impulsive grab at a big-name jersey. Manning has absolutely nothing in common with the fat and happy Redskins free agent disasters of the past."

The moves made by Jim Irsay thus far this offseason point toward the Colts rebuilding after one of its worst seasons in recent memory. Irsay fired the GM and much of the coaching staff, hired a defensive-minded coach, and has repeatedly beaten the "new era" mantra into our heads through press conferences. He's talked about how similar this situation is to 1998,...
As one of pro football’s best-ever quarterbacks is seemingly up for grabs, it makes sense to take a look at how Peyton Manning would blend with every NFL team. So artist David Rappoccio took a stab at it. But it’s not an analysis of how Manning’s style could fit in with every team’s offensive scheme. No, of course not. It’s Peyton Manning’s face incorporated into every...
Since I’m quoting everyone else on Peyton Manning and the Redskins, might as well quote Joe Gibbs on Peyton Manning and the Redskins.
Much of these comments — which came last week on Mike Wise’s radio show — already appeared in The Post via a Mike Wise column.
