ESPN: Manning/Jets a bad mix

Rich Cimini suggests that the Jets are a bad fit for Peyton Manning after the hire of Tony Sparano:

1. The Jets’ hiring of Tony Sparano tells me they’re not thinking seriously about Peyton Manning. Sparano is a run-oriented coach and it would make no sense to put a healthy Manning (big if) into that type of offense. In four years as the Dolphins’ coach, Sparano’s pass ratio never exceeded 57 percent in any season. It would be a bad marriage, and it’s hard to imagine Manning wanting to play in that style. Of course, the Jets have been known to make illogical moves and, because owner Woody Johnson is a star chaser, I wouldn’t rule it out.

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
