  1. Yeah sure all of us who think this are wrong apparently... if most people think this then maybe that's how Irsay felt. Which is fine he didn't say anything the media didn't already say themselves but at least own it.
  2. Again you really don't read I never had a problem with them moving on from Peyton to Andrew but his comments afterwards really were ungrateful. Reading too much into Irsay saying he wanted players who wanted more than 1 ring? Really? He said it. If it was anyone else but the Colts you would talk about how ungrateful he was. And no I don't think Irsay or any owner wants to watch a former player they dumped and talked about how great it was to move on from them win an SB while their team has regressed afterwards. I mean there are people who think less of Jerry for not "doing right" by Romo despite the fact no owner wants to let go of a player they think could get them something in return for nothing. Irsay did what 31 other teams did in the process but you don't need to crap on the past to prop up the present even the Patriots didn't do that to Drew Bledsoe they didn't have to they have 5 SB trophies that tell them it was the right move. I don't feel bad for Peyton the Colts dumped him they did him a favor I think people here can't admit that this move benefitted him more than it has us at this point in time but it wasn't intended to be that way though.
  3. I wouldn't like it but it would be a lot more preferable than New England to me and it would for once be new blood since it would be the first SB for that franchise that's a better story IMO.
  4. I don't get why its that surprising. Jeff Saturday was offered a job here he didn't take it and unlike Manning played for another team half a season and chose to retire here after it ended. Some players don't want to rock the good standing they already have. Its a cutthroat business. If you succeed great if you don't you are out the door and past accolades mean very little. If Manning doesn't think something would work out he wouldn't do it(broadcasting, politics, joining the 49ers) People just want to put him somewhere when he probably doesn't have an idea what he wants to do just yet.
  5. Not entirely accurate People say this now but back then it was a close call. Now Luck/RG3 yeah most thought Luck would be better and I think that debate is over.
  6. Peyton still lives in Denver but a reporter for the Rams posted this
  7. Clearly you don't read because if you did you would know that I never had an issue with the actual decision I had an issue with Irsay's comments after Manning left about Manning only winning 1 SB. If anything I think the only person that gained the most out of all of this was Manning he got to go to 2 SBs and win another. I doubt that's what Irsay had in mind when he made the decision. We did him a favor but I doubt that was the plan. The plan was to go for the younger guy and win it all with him(see Steve Young and Aaron Rodgers) while the old guy faded to oblivion and not win an SB not the other way around.
  8. While I don't think Manning is joining the Rams FO(or any FO) I don't know why its so hard to believe that he might find it awkward to put himself a position to work with a former team. What if it doesn't work out? Then Irsay will have to dump him again. I really don't see Manning wanting to put himself in a position that would make him possibly look bad. He might want to actually enjoy life and is not sure what he wants and that's okay. If anything this should finally show everyone that Brad Wells may be full of it once and for all. In Colts twitterverse other Colts fans have been using him as a reliable source that Manning will return to the Colts as a VP etc before the draft. Yet he had no idea Grigson would be fired among other things.
  9. A similar story happened in Greenwood I don't know what happened after that with the mother though.
  10. Yeah now you say that back then many thought Manning was gutless to not go to SF which had a great defense and was an SB contender. Nobody thought Denver would turn out so well and back then they didn't have Talib, Ware, Emmanuel Sanders guys who wanted to come there when Manning was there. I never thought he would make another SB here but people act as if Irsay did this out of the kindness of his heart more than him doing this out of his own self interest. He figured he would get more SBs out of Andrew Luck(and with more years out of him than the limited time Manning had left)than he would've out of Manning. Its not a bash 31 other teams would've done the same. All owners care about their own bottom line not "doing right" by a player(or fanbase). Jerry leaves a lot to be desired but people bashing him for wanting to get something out of Romo if he thought he could while Irsay was so selfless with Manning is just laughable to me. I doubt if Irsay thought Manning had an SB left in him he would've let him go for nothing was my point not that it was the right decision or not.
  11. Well it was slightly less silly in comparison but Irsay didn't cut Peyton based on a nonexistent "do right" rule he did it because he already wanted Andrew Luck from jump and nobody was going to trade for Manning. I highly doubt Irsay would've outright cut Manning had he known then that Manning would not only have a few more productive years but manage to get 2 SB appearances and win another on his way out. I think that crossed Jerry's mind at least get something out of it.
  12. Rumor has it Manning turned them down so Romo is the backup
  13. He'll be back here in Mid April for some banquet at Marian University but beyond that he's been working the speaking circuit. He shut down political rumors he said he's still not sure what he wants to do for the rest of his life(so hopefully those rumors of him joining an NFL FO should die down as well)
  14. This would have merit if it came from someone other than Brad Wells here. How come he hasn't broken one major FA visit? Or why Manning was at the Rams HQ the other day? Or Grigson getting canned?
  15. His dad grew up in Mississippi. I see him taking a role on the Saints before he ever comes back here. However he has a home there but his family still resides in Denver. I find it hard to believe they want to move back here full time they seem to like it there even if Manning no longer plays for the Broncos. Brad will milk it though as will other Indy reporters for some inexplicable reason considering that the hiring of Ballard should have been a sign to these people that Manning is likely not coming back here to work for the Colts again in the immediate future.
