Marino not recruiting, advising Manning unless asked

Dan Marino would love Peyton Manning to sign with the Miami Dolphins. Proof of that appeared on Marino's twitter page Thursday when the Hall of Famer tweeted, "Shout out to #18, Indy will never forget your legacy. Can't wait to see you back on the field doing what you do best."

Marino is a Manning fan. Marino thinks Manning would be a great wherever he lands, including Miami. But, you know, actually recruiting Manning to the Dolphins?

Probably not unsolicited.

“I probably wouldn’t do that unless he asks for some advice,” Marino said at a charity golf tournament today in Aventura. “And he has plenty of people that he’s working with to help him make the right decisions.”

Don't mistake that for ambivalence. Marino would have no problem pitching the Dolphins because he believes the team has possibilities.

"There’s great tradition there," he said. "We’ve had a couple off years but believe me, they’ll be back,” Marino said. “It’s a great franchise and they’ll get it turned around."

But truth be told, Marino said he thinks Manning would be good in Miami ... or Arizona ... or Denver ... or just about anywhere, really.

"I think he fits with anybody," Marino said. "He’s one of the best to ever play the game at that position. So wherever he ends up playing, if he’s healthy, which is going to be important to Peyton, I’m sure he wants to go out there and play at a high level. Wherever he plays, he’ll be a huge impact for that team."

Manning prefers the AFC.

If he can beat Brady twice a year for the next three years, the Fins are most likely in the playoffs each year.

its a business and peyton will fill the seats. ross will open his checkbook to get the celeb he wants; manning to fins.

waiting for the "first" comment

Anybody remember that Monday Night game where the Dolphins dominated the time of position on the Colts and we still lost? Manning drove down the field for a TD in less than 6 plays in each of his possessions.

The Colts' win is impressive given how much time Manning spent on the sideline. Miami dominated the time of possession battle, chewing 45:07 off the clock. In fact, the Colts only ran 13 plays in the second half.

And some of you idiots dont want this guy. SMH.

Manning is the Marino of his era. Statistics.

Brady is the Montana of his era. Super Bowls.

I'd like to see Manning winning two to three SBs to put Brady in his place.

Brady's first SB win never should have happened. The "tuck" rule robbed the Raiders from going to the SB that year. Brady has a "cat that swallowed the canary smile" when he talks about that game and play.

Hey Clue-less, do you really think Manning could duplicate that with the Dolphins, considering that he will be three years older, coming off a serious injury and a year of inactivity, and playing with players and in an offensive system that he is not familiar with?

Manning could be the FIRST QB to win a SB with two different teams.

It could become a record that stands for several decades or maybe as long as the Fins undefeated season record.

Hey I just posted that Tweet on the last post 10 minutes ago.

Mando stole my thunder :(

WHERE ARE YOU IN OHIO I HAVE BEEN THEIR TOO?

That tweet does not prove Marino wants Manning in Miami, it's more or less Marino wishing the best for a player he likes/respects, it's not courting him in the least bit.

Hey Paul the block head, why dont you check out Manning 2010 stats you dikhead! The guy was still on top of his game when he sat out 2011. Colts went 10 and 6 2010 and 2 and 14 2011. Its Manning the guy an OC on the field turd head.

I don't believe any Fin fan will complain that Manning's career with the Fins lastS only two or three years AS LONG AS he brings a SB WIN.

MANY FANS WEREN'T EVEN BORN WHEN THE FINS WON THEIR LAST SB!

Just get a good backup QB that's willing to watch and learn till Manning retires.

If Manning takes us to the AFC championship game , I'll be satifies.

I live close to the Akron Area. I actually work in Canton (where the Football Hall of Fame is located)

I live about a half hour from Cleveland

Peyton will go to New England, New England To then put him on the trade block for more picks.

To evenually trade down a bunch of times, and pick a bunch of nobodies like they always do.

Manning 2010 season 4700 yards 33TD and 17 int. What team wouldnt want this production from a QB?

And some of you idiots dont want this guy. SMH.

Except, he is no longer that guy.

I can only wait and see what will happen. Signing an FA qb that could be as good as Manning is or was or will be really frees up the draft. So sign the guy Mr Ross.

Hey troller name Think.

Manning last season played

4700 Yards 33Td

Go F yourself

4700 Yards 33Td

Go F yourself

Clueless, last season Peyton was 0 for o with a qb rating of 0.

All hail Danny Marino.
The Best Ever.

Im not sure a 10 yr starter QB even exists anymore. 2 or 3 yrs has become the new normal in this league. The players just arent the same as they were coming out of college. I think the Brady,Manning, marino and so on moulds have been broken never to return~~ Just sayin

P.S. Danny should not call to give Peyton advice. If Peyton wants advice, Danny will of course offer it. Danny still loves the Dolphins I am sure, but will tell Peyton what would be in HIS best interest.

Then again, I think playing for the Dolphins would be a great fit for Peyton. Whether it is a great fit for the Dolphins, that is questionable!

Think, your a trolling bafoon

In Mannings current state, he would not beat Cleo Lemon for the back up job.

Clue

your 4:15 post made me laugh out loud literally!!!

haha :)

2 or 3 years is only normal for the Phins. What successful teams are turning their QB over every 3-4 years? I can't name any.

Dr. Think?

How could we forget that?

Clueless can't even spell the words he uses. What a buffoon. Another sorry uneducated illiterate blogger. Glad he is not our GM!

Ohio, I will never understand trollers, I suppose they want to make non sensical statements to get someone to respond to there stupidity.

Just with Payton mine he is better than what we have now!!

I like to rub oil all over my hot chilli pepper.

What I like about Manning is his brain.

I think he was hardwired for football even before his birth. He's definitely the most cerebral QB I've ever watched play.

When he breaks the huddle he doesn't miss a thing. The best pre-snap "Reader" in the game today. If he's even a shade of his former self, we'll be playoff ready by late August.

Sign the guy ALREADY!

At least with Manning, we shouldn't see a lot of those 4th quarters where the team sort of deflates! He can always kill a D in the 4th!

Think, As long as you get what Im calling you, I dont care too much about the spelling bafoon.

______________________________________________________

There always has been and always will be somewhat of a learning curve early on and some growing pains. QBs generally come into their "prime" 5 years down the road or so...and then decline towards the end.

If everyone was turning their QB over every 2-3 years, you wouldn't even be letting them get to their primes....NTM when you start a scratch rebuild, you're looking at a good 3-4 years to get all of the pieces in place. I fail to see that turning the QB position over every 2-3 years is anything normal.

Clueless the only one saying stupid things is you. Comparing the Peyton before 4 neck surgeries and nerve damage to Peyton today who still is not ready to throw the ball is just plain stupid.

At least learn to spell. Until then nobody will take the opinions of an illiterate person seriously.

What I like about Manning is his brain.

Posted by: odinseye | March 08, 2012 at 04:21 PM

Yes, he read the blitz very well, but what I like the most is his throwing mechanics, for me is perfect.

Regards Odin. Back to work.

Eric,

You were in Sandusky most likely, and the place with the Roller Coasters is probably the theme part Cedar Point. One of the best in the country.

Oh and the Lake is Lake Erie, the only Lake next to Ohio.

Think, at least stop trolling, if you were born with balls you wouldn't have to make up names in order to post your opinions you bafoon.

Think, you are a pimple on my butt.

Wow, now Think is trolling my name. SMH

I suppose Clue is the name on your drivers license? I thought you made it up. It should read 'Clueless' though.

(No, it is not me trolling your name. Others apparently see you as a fool)

Who here besides Clueless is going to cry when Manning goes to another team?

Not me.

Ireland will not sign a crippled QB who is still not in game shape after a full season off.

Think, its obvious your a regular blogger who trolling with the name "Think", possibly because there a stick up you ass.

If we get Manning we will probably draft a right tackle in the first round and sign Reggie Wayne as a FA
If peyton decides to come to the Dolphins I am sure he will let Ireland know that he wanted a good O Line to make sure he can play many more years maybe 5 years.
I know many bloggers have said you do not take a right tackle with pick number 8 and that we should get a DE instead a Game changer.
Our game changer will be Manning and we will need to protect him even more so now than before so he does not re injure his nerve.
Just my opinion.

You are only providing more evidence of your illiteracy. I'd suggest spending more time learning your own language and less time worrying about football.

We don't need Reggie Wayne, he is well past his prime. Our receivers are better.

The Manning thing is past. Everybody here in Miami knows what has to be done. Ross knows. Ireland knows. Most of we Fans know. Let's concentrate on the Future.

Why is Manning delaying a public appearance to show everyone his throwing ability?

Any ideas?

Clue, you uneducated piece of trash. It's "you're." It's a contraction for "you are." Basic 1st grade stuff here.

Clue,

Why are you calling me a troll? WTF did I do?

Anyway:

2010 with Manning Indy goes 10-6.

2011 Without Manning they completely suck.

That means Miami with Manning wins AT LEAST 10 in 2012.

Think, Your a jack rabbit

clue stole timmy's name again.

you are a complete moron, clue

Clue is dumb as bricks, odineye a latin chip and dales dancer, ohio a dud, think is fugly

Hey, odin, how's Debo?(I like big Dogs but I live in an apartment).

Nick Saban Memorial Bubble... STILL?

Geez, there shouldn't even be a cleat named after that dirt bag.

WHY is it that the bubble is STILL named after that POS who screwed us is beyond me.

Jo Robbie stadium, Pro Player stadium, Land Shark stadium, Sun life stadium and what's next? So if they can change the name of the stadium a million times why haven't they changed the bubble.

Things like that make you go Hum.

One thing are coyotes, odin, and another wolves. Specially Lone Wolves.
