I think that is only part of the argument you are receiving. You have to consider who WILL be cut in the future to compensate for Mannings contract.
In two years, if Manning doesnt restructure his contract like just about every veteran does, then true, it will hurt them. But until 2 years from now, its purely speculation with no clue what the scenario will look like.
Well for starters, today isn't two years for now, so how can you complain about something that may or may not happen?
Next, veterans that restructure are generally much deeper into their careers than Manning. 28 is still pretty young in QB years. How can you complain about someone not restructuring a contract the signed THIS year?
Brett Favre (35) and Drew Bledsoe (32) each could use some WR's, but neither of their monster contracts have been restructured to make room for it. I suppose you could call Brett Favre a greedy, arrogant, pompous player, but then no one would ever listen to any arguement you ever made after that...
