Reich doesn’t mean Manning in AZ

Raising Zona’s Scott Allen isn’t buying the conspiracy theory that Frank Reich was hired by the Cardinals as an attempt to lure Peyton Manning to town:

Ok, I get just like all of you that Reich was Manning’s coach with the Indianapolis Colts.  I get the Cards are considered a front-runner for Manning’s services should the Colts not pick up his option by March 8th.  Let’s not connect the dots – yet.

First of all, it is all moot if the Colts do pick up the option or find another deal Manning can live with and stay with the Colts.  Secondly, Reich will be coaching wide receivers, not quarterbacks.  Yeah, sure it helps to have a familiar face on the coaching staff, but let’s be real.  Reich is staying here whether Manning comes here or not, so to say they hired him for the sole purpose that they plan on dealing for Manning, is just plain ridiculous.
