08:04 AM ET 03.09 | With a small window of time to choose from a reported 12 teams, Peyton Manning will set about on his process of elimination. The Redskins were said Thursday to face a number of obstacles in their bid to sign [Manning]. ... "There are a few significant issues" for Manning and his representatives as they evaluated the Redskins' interest in him, one person familiar with the discussions said. That person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stopped short of saying that Manning would not play for the Redskins. But another person with knowledge of the team's deliberations said the Redskins probably had a better chance to complete a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the second overall choice in next month's draft.

Short term... Manning would help.

Long term, move up and draft the kid.

Good. RG3 might be the longterm answer. Peyton would be an interim measure at best.

Might as well be greedy and hope for both, though.

Wouldn't that suck if they land neither one?

Get it done.... Please.

Show me it's real!

They'd still have to make a move at QB, and yes it would indeed suck.

There's a new circus in town.

They could trade for Tebow

I'd rather see them take Weeden if RG3 and Manning both don't work out, but I'd take Tebow over anybody they have on the roster now. And be glad to have him.

Send him our way. We have bags of money and little managerial sense. Perfect for the mercenary sense in pro sports these days.

March 9, 2012  08:49 AM ET

They go after Flynn and save their picks.

Every thread is about Manning. Nothing else can happen in the world until this is done. Everyone should stay home from work and check the news until it's over.

Manning vs Manning twice a year? I don't think so.

I haven't even had a bowel movement since the news broke.
