i think this signing means no peyton, sadly. manningham's strength is the deep ball, but his route running is pretty scratchy. i think he can be asset, but i don't think he's a signing to further entice 18 to sign.
manningham's market was soft, which could have let the giants back in. did eli want him back? if not, why not? maybe eli did want him back, and if that's the case, peyton is taking food from his brother's plate, because he would have been asked his opinion before we signed him.
maybe i'm reading too much into this, but adding a another deep threat with questionable route running skills to convince peyton, a stickler for precision and possible muscle issues which are more likely to affect his deep ball. i dunno.
