I've long felt that any desire on Miami's part to pursue Peyton Manning is largely driven by the owner. He falls into the same trap most fans fall into when looking at an aging, injured quarterback who suddenly becomes available. That trap is the idea that the quarterback will suddenly become what he once was when he was in his prime and be the saving grace and answer to the team's superbowl question. It's also the same trap the Dolphins have fallen into in the past, which is the trap of bringing in the older, veteran quarterback as a bridge to the future. In all cases, that future did not come. While some may say that your future is not guaranteed and that you should always play for the now, these are some of the same people who felt it was better to intentionally lose games for the betterment of the future. So, you cannot have it both ways. Somehow, this is a team that has gone from being one that should intentionally lose games to get Andrew Luck to a team that is an instant Superbowl Champion if they signed an older, injured Peyton Manning. I think the best point that was made in this article was this one. Joe Philbin was brought in from the Packers to bring that philosophy and culture to Miami. If that is the case, then Miami should be making moves that would ensure sustainable success and not make a move with the idea that we will get instant success and deal with the future when that time comes. In the Green Bay philosophy, signing Peyton Manning is a move that would not be made. As was stated, Green Bay was on the other end of the spectrum. They let go of the older, former franchise quarterback to move on with the younger, potential franchise quarterback. Now, Green Bay will be consistent superbowl contenders for the next several years, as Aaron Rodgers is just now entering the prime of his career. It's not a surprise that the Green Bay philosophy largely stems from the days of the Bill Walsh 49ers, who initiated the plan to replace the aging Joe Montana with the younger Steve Young in the late '80s.
