Peyton Manning has left more tongues wagging than your typical Kate Upton cover photo, as many teams were forced to evaluate their own quarterback position against the possibility of bringing in one of the best quarterbacks of his era.
Now some teams, probably in their heart of hearts (weâre talking about you, Cowboys), must have at least had a thought about No. 18 making his return for their squad. But four teams turned on the charm and flaunted their courtship -â often to the detriment of their relationship with their current quarterbacks.
But don't worry, we have your best interests at heart. We've enlisted the advice of Dr. Phil to help mend those broken hearts and hurt feelings.
It was only a year ago the love affair between coach Ken Whisenhunt and Kevin Kolb was as red hot as the Arizona sun in September. But have things cooled to the point where the coach and the quarterback can't make it work? Dr. Phil has the advice. (And coach, you should probably learn from your mistakes from the whole Matt Leinart deal.)
How bleak are things in Miami? JaMarcus Russell won't even take the Dolphins' calls. Well, he probably would, but we're just exaggerating to make a point because things have become so bad in Miami, even Dr. Phil himself has to call in some reinforcements.
San Francisco 49ers
Coach Jim Harbaugh inspired the 49ers as he asked them, "Who has it better than us?" Turns out he was talking to everybody except Alex Smith. But now the coach and the quarterback are back together again after a brief flirtation with Manning.
The Titans had a big enough headache while trying to juggle between their two current quarterbacks -- Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker. So coach Mike Munchak has not one spurned quarterback to attend to, he has two. How does he handle it?
