Okay but as a point of reference Lucks first 4 years were better than Manning's I remember I was here for it watching & waiting for Manning to win his first playoff game or even get to his first AFC Championship game Luck did it quicker with less .
And of course I remember the first SB in 2007 anotherwards Luck is ahead of Manning at this point in his career . 18 was not gonna be able in 2012 to play on that team & go that far I was one of those that hoped he could stay & that we could draft Luck but I also would have hated to see him get hurt once again .
My hope is that the Colts recognize they screwed up with Manning & are able to give Luck a decent defense that can actually hold a lead & keep our franchise QB in Indy to win those Superbowls on 1 team with his 3'rd OC in his short career I get the Manning love but don't let it blind you from the truth & only time will tell at this point Luck has proven he is a equal & based on the first 4 years better .
At this point . He has not played over a decade give it one then it might mean something in who's actually better .
I have my opinion based on the first 4 of each by both in that my point is proved .
Skip has never been a Peyton or Colts fan. He constantly called Peyton a choker while he was here. Noting that he choked in college against Florida as well. He only recently became a Peyton "fan" after the Colts released him because that gave him a major story to hang his hat on and continue to hate on the Colts & Indy for choosing Luck over Peyton. He still praises Peyton with the backhanded compliment "the greatest regular season quarterback"... Whoever the biggest stars are and whatever the consensus feelings about them are, he'll play the contrarian just to garner attention... His fame grew off of his attacks on Lebron. Then he moved on to Mayweather and now it's Luck. Search for the next "can't miss star" and you'll find Skip putting him/her down to boost his on Q rating off of their name.
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
