Peyton is still my favorite player in the NFL and I certainly wouldnt call him a choker in the playoffs...but its clear he isnt exactly the biggest playoff performer of the greats.

That throw against Baltimore was just cringe worthy.

Nice fair summary JWF. Well put.

Luck is my 2nd favorite QB in the nfl. Manning is and I think always will be a better QB then luck, end of story

You coud be right (odds way in your favour with that comment), but with a fantastic 1st year under his belt, the comparisons do not compute at this stage in their respective careers. Clearly for Luck to make the huge jump and stick with Mannings stats over 12 seasons will be rather difficult to accomplish. But right now.......Luck is probably ahead on all counts.....

Then embrace them all; he's tied with Brett Favre for the most postseason losses by a starting QB in NFL history.

 

Manipulating statistical information in order to promote a positive narrative to the exclusion of the truth should be a red flag for anyone.

 

I am embracing all the stats. I said to look at his body of work and he's still one of the best QBs of all time. Embracing his body of work includes negative aspects/stats. That's what the "body of work" means...everything. If I discount the positive, then I'm not considering the entireity. As I mentioned already, I know Manning has his faults. I'm not manipulating anything. I haven't the time to gather and post the entire body of work for Manning (again, that body of work will includes NEGATIVE). Did you see that...NEGATIVE? Once again, without looking back through your history of posts, only considering our communication, I see ONLY negative comments from you regarding Manning. I would say that's a red flag.

 

My little sister argues in the same manner as you. Her come back is typically a play on words, quoting me out of text or coming back with a cute quote/saying. I stopped long ago trying to reason with her because she is unreasonable and has tunnel vision regarding everything and opinion about which she is passionate. Discussing this any further with you would be a waste of time. Alvederzane...

"...But what time I do have will only highlight statistical information that supports my POSITIVE (and misleading) narrative."

You're right...even after more than a year off with neck surgery. Same MVP caliber player, making a good team great, putting up record stats. Same old Peyton.

 

"making a good team great" are you serious??? they won a playoff game last year with tebow!! only manning can be on a "great" team and lose in the playoffs.

 

"putting up record stats" what were these?

Hold on a minute...is that you little sister? Even though you're a Redskins fan, you acknowledge how good Peyton Manning is. We disagree on many things, but you're VERY football savvy. Even though we both like Tebow, you would never put Tebow on the same plane as Peyton Manning. As a matter of fact, you were so hoping Peyton would sign with the Skins. Hmmm, maybe you're just messin' with me. If that's you, stop messin' with me. I'm trying to have an intelligent conversation here. Thank you.

 

P.S. I'm going to tell mom about you next time I see her.

Manning choked like he always does. Just be glad they played the Bears in the Super Bowl, who had Grossman at quarterback or he would still be like Marino, best at the position to never win a ring.

I'm going to just provide a link to this article that was provided to me. I suppose though, you're set in your ways and opinion...

Honestly, we don't need the manning hate. But whenever you get done with it we made the right decision, period.

Oh did we? I think we did too, but that remains to be seen

Of course we made the right decision. I'm not arguing we should have kept Manning. I'm pretty sure Manning wasn't let go because of what some people think about him in the playoffs.

It doesn't remain to be seen. What you keep manning for a few more years of making the playoffs? Or let me guess rg3? Yeah give me a shot at a future with Luck every time. Have to leave the emotions out of business decisions.

a huge no on rgiii. I'm just saying nothing is a given yet. I think luck was better than advertised this year.

I don't care what the numbers say, I still don't think Peyton ever looked like the same old Peyton to me this year. It's not a knock on him either, happens to everyone at some time. He was still very very good this year at times, much better then expected which made many feel hesitant about the decision. But, based on the eye test alone we have seen the very best Manning can do and the Manning of the past IMO might have carved those Ravens up in the playoffs which is sad to see since that is a team Peyton has always owned. Perhaps he is better next season with another year, perhaps not. Time will tell, same with his team in Denver.

 

We were never going to have both Manning/Luck. The pre Manning release dream was never going to happen.

 

Look at how bad many feel seeing Manning lose with the Broncos. Imagine how badly you would feel if this was the Colts and we had another one and done with him and Luck was doing well on another team as he did on the Colts this season. Manning on the Colts next season at 37 and still more holes to fill on the roster......does not sound overly appealing to me.

 

I think the problem is also that this Denver situation might not end up roses and peaches like many had hoped. It is a good team but hardly the super power they were made out to be as they beat up on a lot of weak competition this year while losing to good teams early in the year. This Denver team at times to me became overly inflated due to the playoff win over the Steelers which was a miracle in itself at times to me lol.

 

Yes the Colts made the right decision. We have a young/healthy QB for a long time hopefully who has shown great promise in his rookie season and we can still rebuild around him without having the SB or bust expectations his first few seasons.

 

With Peyton everyone would be complaining even more if he was here that we wasted another year of him...cause we all knew deep down this team was not going to the SB even with Manning.

 

Luck is going to be a good one though, there should be no regrets here IMO. He is the right QB and leader for us at this time and times have changed.

 

I will say this though, I think I would rather have Peyton right now then RG3. I don't trust RG3 not to get hurt......

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
