Just in case you don’t know who John McClain is, he writes for the Houston Chronicle. And based on the tweet above, any Texans fan dreaming of Manning joining the Texans should just forget it.
Pretty harsh there, John.
Teams don’t know if he’ll play again. The Texans have Matt Schaub, whose rehab from foot surgery is ahead of schedule. Schaub works out almost every day. T.J. Yates is the backup. Matt Leinart is third.
Think about the Texans’ offense.
That’s not Manning’s offense. He doesn’t roll out and throw the boot. He’s a pocket passer. Manning will go to a team that plays the same offense and is willing for him to basically run it because that’s what he did so well with the Colts until his three neck operations.
So forget about Manning coming to the Texans. It’s not going to happen.
Welp, it was fun while it lasted.
