Profootballtalk and NBC Sports’ Mike Florio joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan while at radio row in Indianapolis, IN during Super Bowl week and spoke candidly about the direction he thinks the Redskins are going.
When asked point-blank if he thought the Skins were heading in the right direction, Florio responded immediately with, “No.” Asked if he though the franchise was treading water he replied, “treading water would be a compliment right now.”
Some fans and pundits think Peyton Manning could be the remedy to cure the mediocrity that has been ailing D.C. Florio predicted it could make matters worse.
“Peyton Manning’s not going to want to play quarterback in an offense where the guy that’s running it has a joystick in his hand and wants the quarterback to do exactly what he wants the quarterback to do,” Florio said. “Peyton Manning would strap Kyle Shanahan to a goal post with Duct Tape within a week,” he added.
