Manning has always shown that he doesn't care all that much about the money. IIRC, wasn't Manning actually opposed to the big contract from a couple of years ago because he didn't want to limit the ability for the team to sign other players. I thought that the franchise insisted on making him the highest paid QB or something like that (bet they're regretting that decision BTW).

My best guess (and what I think they should do) is try to renegotiate/restructure that big bonus that they owe him, draft Luck and let him sit for a little while and learn. Keep both, start Manning, and revisit this decision next year (and every year after that to determine if Luck is ready and if Manning is done). They can always try to trade him or cut him later on, but it's pretty risky getting rid of Manning for someone who's never taken an NFL snap before. Remember, people thought that Ryan Leaf was a pretty good QB coming out of college too.

If Manning can still play they could get some nice draft picks.  But it's a gamble either way.  As for the money thing, he sure whores himself out for commercials.

And my hunch is that Cowher will actually never coach again, but wonder what others think.

That Sunday morning job seems pretty cushy.  I bet the salary ain't bad either, why would he go back?

Wonder how many more years have to go by before nobody's really interested in bringing him back?  Sooner or later, the game passes you by, no?

If it hasn't already.  Cowher's teams won't be remembered for their offenses, and Goodnfl is legislating defense out of the game.

It even seems he was already passed by when he was here, hence the great sense of relief when we won XL.

Maybe that's why he doesn't care as much about the salary?
