Chelsea Manning memoir coming in winter of 2020

Chelsea Manning memoir coming in winter of 2020 Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst jailed for leaking government documents, has a book deal. Farrar, Straus and Giroux announced this week that Manning's memoir, currently untitled, will come out next winter. According to the publisher, Manning will write about why she decided to send classified materials to WikiLeaks and about her life as a trans woman. Manning was sentenced to 35 years, but was released in 2017 after President Barack Obama commuted her time in prison. Recently, she was jailed for two months for refusing to answer a grand jury's questions about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Peyton Williams Manning (born March 24, 1976) is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League (NFL), primarily with the Indianapolis Colts.

Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson wants a “great strategic thinker” to run the football operation. He needs someone who can work with coach Adam Gase. And at the intersection possibly resides one and only one name.

Peyton Manning.

Rumors are flying within league circles that the Jets may make a run at the future Hall of Fame quarterback who has periodically been linked to NFL management possibilities. And Gase, who worked with Manning in Denver, possibly would be one of the few guys who could draw Manning back into football.

Manning wouldn’t be a traditional G.M., but Johnson has made it clear that he’s not looking for a traditional G.M.

Gase-Maccagnan schism evident during pre-draft meetings

Gase-Maccagnan schism evident during pre-draft meetings New Jets coach Adam Gase clearly won the power struggle with just-fired General Manager Mike Maccagnan. But it seems the seeds of the discord between them were sown during draft meetings, when Gase didn’t have much of a voice and Maccagnan didn’t offer him the chance to make it heard. As detailed by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the rift between Gase and Maccagnan became apparent during preparation for the draft, when Maccagnan didn’t invite the new coach to offer much input into scouting.

The New York Jets are one of several possibilities for Peyton Manning this offseason if the Indianapolis Colts decide to let him go. And it shocks me that we haven't heard more from the Jets organization regarding Manning . As ESPN notes, there are seven realistic destinations for Manning

“It’s more than a talent-evaluation guy,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I want a great manager, a communicator, who can collaborate well with the building. I’m convinced we’re going to find that person.”

Manning definitely would be that person. But it’s unknown whether Manning would be interested in being that person. If he is, it would fulfill a match more than 20 years in the making; in 1997, Manning supposedly would have left Tennessee early if he had an assurance that the Jets would make him the first overall pick in the draft.

Getting Manning also would go a long way toward removing the current stink of dysfunction enveloping the Jets, even if that stink is more than a little overblown.

Peyton Manning throws his full support behind Joe Flacco.
Peyton Manning was the Denver Broncos’ most successful quarterback since current general manager John Elway led them to two Super Bowl titles in the 1990s. When Manning talks, it makes a ton of sense to listen. He did just that recently in talking up new Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco. In fact, Manning seemed to throw his full support behind the much-maligned signal caller. “It’s a fresh start. He handled it well last year. He was a pro and tried to do the best for the team,” Manning said, via Troy Renck of ABC 7 in Denver.
