The D.C. Mayor Doesn't Want Peyton Manning Coming To The Redskins

Peyton Manning is going to be a big story all year long, until he retires, returns to the Colts, or signs somewhere else. Like the Redskins, maybe? You have to admit, signing an aging superstar who may never play a down would probably be the most Washington Redskins move of all time.

Now, enter the mayor of Washington D.C.

Note: I've lived in D.C. my whole life, and with all due respect to Vincent Gray, it's a city ravaged by a broken public school system, crime that pretty much never stops, and one of the most incompetent local governments on the face of the earth. On the other hand...

"You know, I think it depends on what role he would play. But I really think the Redskins need a quarterback that they can build with for the future. You know, Andrew Luck is probably going to go to the Colts, but there's Robert Griffin III, and there's a couple other promising quarterbacks that are out there. We've kind of been down this pathway with quarterbacks who've been great but maybe are in the back end of their career, and even if he comes in and plays a year or two, where do we go from there?"

He's not wrong, is he? You can watch the Mayor's entire interview here.

And, if you're keeping score at home and willing to extrapolate a little, "one of the most incompetent local governments on the face of the earth" is still much, much more trustworthy than Dan Snyder.
