Is it time to let go of Manning?

Postby Jon FLA » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:01 am

With his 2nd surgery speculation is he isnt coming back for 2-3 months.
What if it heals right away? Should I drop him now and pick up a possible playoff contender?

Drop him

I just dropped him in both my leagues, yes both. Killed me in one because he was my second round pick (2 qb league drafted 2 weeks ago). Other league just drafted this week and picked him up in the 12th so it didn't hurt me that much.

Im an idiot and drafted him in the 5th this past weekend. Anyways, I just dropped him and now have Eli manning, Josh freeman and picked up Matt Hasselback.

Even if he does come back in a month (which seems very unlikely) remember that season he didn't practice or play in preseason, he started off pretty bad. There's no way , even if he played in 4 or 5 weeks that he will be the manning we are used to.

Drop him.

all surgeons say that its a 2-3 month minimum recovery, and alot are saying his career is in jeopardy. More players do not come back from this injury than do. This ended Ellis Hobbs and Sterling Sharpes careers. I'm willing to take the risk on dropping him since I don't see any possibility of him coming back in a month. I'll trust the experts.
