Source: Dolphins chances with Manning would be good

INDIANAPOLIS -- So far the story of Peyton Manning has been one of whether he'll be healthy, whether he'll be cut by the Indianapolis Colts, and when all this will happen.

But amid the saga of stories and statements and interviews with counter-interviews, I must tell you this:

The Dolphins surely do have a confidence about their ability to land Manning if and when he's available. Why?

Well, here at the Super Site, I got the chance to talk to several NFL and Dolphins sources Thursday evening and everyone tells me the Dolphins definitely will be making the play for Manning. Secondly, I come to find out Manning is something of a South Florida fan.

A club source told me Thursday evening that Manning has indicated several times during his career an affinity for the region and has put his money where his mouth his in that he and his wife bought a condo on South Beach. The name of the condo is Continuum.

"His wife is also a big fan of the area," the source told me. "He likes the area. He likes the vibe of the area more than you might think. They own a condo down here. And no other team that could be trying to sign him will be able to say that."

Interesting.

Ross needs to move the team to LA and stop embarrassing S Florida.

Wouldn't moving the team to LA be an embarrassment for South Florida?

Stupid!

For what it's worth from PFT:

"and now comes word from Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel, citing an unnamed NFL source, that Miami is on the short list of places Manning would like to play".

Cocoajoe..I just read the post on the SS..It was basically the same stuff Armando said yesterday. Both reporters brought up Mannings wife liking SFLA. People discard this an no big deal. I disagree. The wifey being stoked is a huge.

Everyone keeps on saying he has 3 years at best left. If what I read about the nerves healing and not being a problem with the rules they have for QB's now Manning might play another 5 years .
