Peyton Manning has a billion dollars, it's not about money. He's not going to Miami or the Redskins or any of those other nonsense propositions. He needs to go something like league minimum to a team that's only a QB away from the whole shebang. Who fits that description? The Ravens. Boom. Done.
Serious question, in a hypothetical situation where Peyton Manning doesn't care about money, would you be on board with replacing Joe Flacco with him? I think if you're trying to get there, it might be worth the risk
That said, regarding Greenie I think we're on the same page. He's got 2 years and no excuses. That's the bottom line, IMHO. If you were going to fire him for not making the tournament, you would have done it last year, not this year. In that same vein though, you only get so many, you know...decades...before you actually have to accomplish the goal.
FWIW I think Sendek is a better comparison for Flacco than Greenberg. While at a very very high level it's similar in "making or not making the goal," the scale of what "the goal" is is pretty significant and also matters. I think that making the playoffs 4 times in a row, making the Conference Championships, etc. buys you a whole lot more goodwill than not making the (real) postseason at all.
