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

Recommended Posts

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.

    •   First,  it's NOT one game.....     the O-line was outstanding the last 6-7 games of 2016.   Second,  the line wasn't the issue why we lost Monday night.      The young quarterback was.     Brissett is a talented kid,   but he's got a lot to learn as all young quarterbacks do.        The blitzes that came in the 2nd half are blitzes that Luck can handle....    but most young quarterbacks struggle with them.      Once the offense couldn't move the ball,  we were screwed.     You can only keep the defense on the field for so long before bad things start to happen.   Look.....    you're likely going to get your wish after this season.     Pagano will get fired.    Most of the staff will likely go with him.       Are you going to throw a fit each week we melt down?       Because you'll be doing a lot of it.     And what's the point?    The staff will soon be gone,  maybe not as fast as you'd like,   but they'll be gone.      And a new staff will come in and hopefully that will lead to much, much better football.     It's just a matter of time...    
    •   You can't sidestep this problem.  He started the sitting/kneeling thing and so he's the face and the symbol of it.  People would feel that by signing him you are endorsing his protest, which is going to cost you fans.  That's just the reality of it.   He is grasping at straws, he's hurt either emotionally or financially by the fact that he's not playing.  A couple weeks ago he promised that he would stand for the anthem if he was signed.  Now he's doing this.     But he can't go back now.  That's just the way he is.  He stood up for something and now he's going to pay for it.  It's not any different with anyone else.  Taking a stand on something controversial, no matter how right or wrong you are can cost you.  
    • So every time a player gets beat or has a vision mishap they are regressing? These guys are grooming this year and will only progress through learning and failure.  
    • After 6 games, they are not regressing. They are playing different teams with different formations and looks. Again, 6 games. They don't have a whole lot of experience at this level.
