On Thursday, Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann sat down with Mike Wise and Holden Kushner on radio row in Indianapolis and shared his thoughts about the Redskins quarterback struggles, and even weighed in on Peyton Manning.
“We have not been able to find a quarterback in the city of Washington to be able to take over that football team” Theismann said. “Since I left 29 about years ago, I think there have been 29 different starters in the city…I believe this is the year they’ll find somebody that you hope will quarterback this team for the next five to seven years.
However, Theismann is dead set against the idea of bring in Peyton Manning. “It’s not a good idea, it’s not a bad idea, it’s a horrific idea. It would be one of the poorest things that we could do as a franchise. Are we gonna go find another guy for just a couple of years again? Haven’t we done this before? Haven’t we seen this act before? And by the way, if you get Peyton Manning, don’t you have a concern about protecting him? Don’t you have a concern about who he throws the football to?”
According to Theismanm, it’s a bad idea for Peyton to go anywhere. “Anywhere but Indianapolis for Peyton Manning is mistake.”
