The Dolphins have been used recently by Fisher and Harbaugh to drive up the price of other organizations and at the end the Dolphins always end up looking bad because it looks like had to settle for their back up plan. I just have the feeling that neither of those coaches were seriously considering Miami and were just letting reports leak that they might be interested to just rise the price because they knew that Ross has a bunch of money he is willing to spend. Now I don't know if Manning is going to do this to us but it could be a real possibility. He could just leak information that the Dolphins are in hist top 3 teams he wants to go to, but in reality the Dolphins are his backup plans in case a certain list of teams don't want him.
I just don't want to see us looking like we got our 2nd choices at head coach and QB. It might be in their best interest to just pursue Flynn, who probably has the Dolphins as his top option, than Manning who could have the Cardinals as his top option. However this is just my speculation, for all we know Manning could have the Dolphins as his top option. This is why the Dolphins are in a risky position with Manning, if they try to get him he could just use us to drive up the price for another team, we could lose out on Flynn if we get caught up too much with Manning, and even if we do get him we might not see him play a down this season because of his injury.
Which do you guys think is less of a risk Manning with all the things I just mentioned plus his age, or Flynn because of his lack of playing time?
