He is just trying to get attention, Ya cant take him serious
I hate these type threads.
... And I'm tired of the notion that if you support Luck you must Hate Peyton.
.......And if you support Peyton you can't be a Colts Fan.
So Sue Me....
....I support BOTH.
I really don't know how I'll react if they meet in the Playoffs. I have really enjoyed this year.... It's been such a magical season for everyone. I don't really want it to end for either, but it will. I just hope for Good Games all around.
I'll be honest then. I am a Colts fan full stop. After that I don't honestly care. As I have many close friends who like many other teams. I would shout for their teams over any player including Manning. Except v my wife's team, the Patriots. That would be like selling my soul to the Devil. I think I would like to see Peyton win another ring or two, as long as it's not at the expense of the Colts, but it would be 'nice', no more than that.
I had several very long and decent pm's with Mac on the subject, and we came out on a good footing. I know it is quite common in America to follow a player rather than a team, but this phenomenon is almost unheard of in the rest of the world due to soccer fandom. No player is ever more important than the team so to speak. I did have trouble with this concept at first, but after my chat with Mac, I get it.
What does agitate me however is the negative comments about our team from some of the Manning 'first' fans who almost can't wait to slight Luck or Irsay at the drop of a hat. This has happened throughout the season. Little digs here and there, nipping away at a sore.
I'm afraid there is still a lot bitterness from a small section and they will never be happy no matter how well we do.
That is what riles people on here I feel.
All of you make valid points: Skip Bayless loves to create a false level of equivalency. Either you love Luck or you hate him, Either he has the Superstar it factor or he is interception prone. I also agree with Gramz. It is possible to admire both Manning & Luck & 1 must never forget what Peyton did for INDY either for that matter. No one deserves to be vilified should they choose to follow both #18 & #12. A person can still move forward with INDY's new direction & still be pleased with what the Pagano regime has achieved.
I do find it humorous that Skip Bayless goes out of his way to point Luck's weaknesses while, in his eyes, RG3 can do no wrong.
