Peyton fans and Colts fans should thank Irsay for the win-win

8 posts in this topic

If Peyton were behind the Colts' O-line, he would have been sent into retirement much earlier, IMO.

 

I think he should actually thank Irsay that he got to choose his team at this stage of his career in order to prolong it. His quick release was going to compensate for only a bit of the O-line's deficiencies.

 

I have not seen a win-win situation as much as I am seeing now with Peyton going to the Broncos and Colts fans getting a new chapter to be stoked about in Luck.

So now instead of Peyton getting drilled, Luck is taking the hits.. ya.. win-win.

 

Manning couls still avoid getting drilled by releasing the ball quickly, which he does not need to do now behind the Broncos OL. No wonder why people kept saying he had lost the arm strength to throw deep when he was a Colt while now he is leading the league with completions of 20+ yds.

I would refrain from calling this anything other than a win-??? for another year or two.

Demaryius Thomas is No.2 in the league for 20+ yrds catch (Calvin Johnson is #1). This is the guy who was made by Tebow (according to some of his fans) :)

His development under Peyton this year is staggering. And he just started to scratch the surface. He and Decker would be even bigger threats next year. They haven't peaked yet.

I'm thinking that is the argument Jim Irsay used to convince Peyton to smile when he announced the decision to part ways.  Another team would give him a better chance for a ring sooner....but who REALLY knew Andrew Luck would be this good, this quickly.

 

I certainly didn't

Manning surely has better chance to add a couple of SB rings but for Luck it is not unrealistic for him to be this good this year. The schedule is easy and he's known as the most prepared college QB in decades, even better than Manning as a rookie. When I saw him tossing 2 ints in the pre-season game at Steelers and came back to tie the game in August I knew he was going to do some things for Colts. A real test for him is next year, hope the team gets improved and he could avoid a sophomore slump.

DT is a monster and probably the most potent WR Manning has ever worked with. If Manning can make Marvin Harrison one of the best ever, I don't think he will have problem making DT even better.

 

I don't believe these tall and physical WRs have been used correctly in the league, even including guys like Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marchall. Their QBs only throw the ball to their direction and let them make the catch regardless coverage. Had they been working with Manning they'd be even more productive.

 

If Broncos could add another DT on the opposite side through FA or draft and move Decker to the slot, this could easily be the best WR group in the entire NFL.

    • Supe..I appreciate the effort ...... 3 things..come to mind   Of the 3 vets Boston would LOVE to give us for PG, ..Avery Bradley has quality..a former all-star Unless I have misread his birth date, Paul George will be 27 next season..... all next season...His birthday is May 2. He will eventually be better than LeBron because LeBron will decline..its inevitable. LeBron will be 33 next year   ..and if, we do your deal and, as you say, we are competitive in the East for the title in 3 years and, since he's a solid shooter with insane wingspan  Fultz proves to be even better than Paul George..(lets say that happens) .... ...Fultz will, in 3 years,  be one year from free agency and we will have to get a big name free agent or he will walk.(sound familiar?)   The whole thing is just kicking the can down the road.....and not trying to win now Eventually, you have to go for it. I believe, as I know you know, that time is now..next year..... 2017-2018  
    • To be fair, the team he was on doesn't exactly match up well against those better teams    But I see your point 
    • My tastes vary between Metal to Death Metal to Hard Rock to Rap to R&B.   So right now..... Favorite Metal tune all-time:  "Orion" by Metallica - even though no vocals, perfect blend of musicianship Favorite Death Metal tune all-time:  TIE!  "Biomech" by Allegaeon and "Proponent For Sentience II: The Algorithm"  by Allegaeon - I know you don't know them but take my word for it Favorite Hard Rock tune all-time:  "Unchained" by Van Halen (not Van Hagar) - so many by VH but it's my fav Favorite Rap tune all-time: "Nuthin But a G Thang" by Dre/Dogg - that intro tho; I don't smoke but if I did I could see myself doing it with this playing in the background LOL Favorite R&B tune all-time:  "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, although "Congratulations" by Post Malone is making a run for me right now
    • You just don't get the concept of the matching salaries required in NBA trades... If NY wanted to trade Carmelo to us they would have to take matching salaries.. .....they would then release the players with expiring contracts they didn't want.   Understand?
    • I've worked third shift a couple times prior to my current job, both at an airport and in a factory. I always had a hard time getting adequate sleep no matter how dark I made the room, lol.  Just knowing it was daytime threw me off.   My current line of work is hard on my sleep schedule....I never really go into a deep sleep, and get woken up often, even when I'm home. I've been an insomniac for years though, since high school really, friends used to call me a vampire because I was always up late into the night wrenching on my cars or just hangin out, lol.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
