Titans GM Shoots Down Peyton Manning To Tennessee Rumors

As a lifelong fan of the Titans, my heart skipped a few beats once I saw the photoshopped pic of Peyton Manning in a Titans Uniform. Unfortunately, I am aware the Titans have already “solved” their QB situation for now. If this was the 2010 Titans coming off the Vince Young-Jeff Fisher era, I would be all for the Titans bringing in a Hall of Famer like Peyton to teach a guy like Jake Locker.

New Titans GM Ruston Webster is aware of the where his team stands at QB, and by the looks of it Peyton Manning won’t be wearing two-toned blue anytime soon.

“Obviously [Manning] is a great player in the league,” Tennessee general manager Ruston Webster told season-ticket holders in a conference call, as reported by John Glennon of The Tennessean. “But on the flip side of that, we’re excited about our quarterback situation.”

Webster went on to heap praise on Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker and to talk about the team’s list of other needs.

I generally trust the Titans’ offseason decisions especially when it comes to free agency. This is the same team that let Albert Haynesworth walk, seems like a genius move now.

This obviously will disappoint the few Titans fans that started a site to bring Peyton back home…

  • Lifelong fan of the Titans? Since…1999? When you said this:

    “I generally trust the Titans’ offseason decisions especially when it comes to free agency.”

    I realized that you had no idea what you were talking about. Sure, they got it right with Haynesworth. But let’s stop pretending the Titans have been the gold standard in free agency. The comedy of errors with Yancey Thigpen and Carl Pickens. The folly of Randy Moss. The debacle of David Givens. Dwayne Ruud?! Bobby Wade?! Bryce Fisher?! The second time around with Jevon Kearse?!

    The Titans spend money in three areas: offensive line, kicker, and punter (and you could possibly throw in tight end occasionally). Skill position players are paid under market value if they’re retained at all. And what do they have to show for it after 13 seasons in Nashville? FIVE playoff wins, with 3 of those in one postseason…THIRTEEN YEARS AGO. Two blown home-field advantages in the postseason. Even the Raiders have more playoff wins in the same span. That’s the bottom line.

    I trust the Titans’ front office to do just enough to be competitive, but hardly serious contenders for anything except a mid-first round draft pick or a first round playoff exit. Which is why the city of Houston ran Bud Adams out of town in the first place.
