Manning flew his backups to Hawaii?

19 posts in this topic

from NFL.com..

"I'm very happy for Coach (Jim) Harbaugh," said Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was mentored by the 49ers coach during their time at Stanford together. "But I wish I was the one getting to play against him in the Super Bowl."

Maybe it's true for every year, but this postseason's obituaries seem to read particularly harsh. And as a result, these men are having a particularly tough time letting this year go.

"All of us have had major disappointments in our seasons," Fox said.

From the Packers falling short of their Super Bowl anticipations to the Seahawks' season coming to an end despite a 20-point comeback against the Falcons to Atlanta's meltdown against the 49ers in their own season-ending loss, the league's top names can all look back on their seasons with very legitimate "what if" question.

For the Broncos, whose sting might be the worst of the bunch, especially after that double overtime loss to the Ravens, they are at least in this together. Manning flew his two backup quarterbacks, Brock Osweiler and Caleb Hanie, to Hawaii for this week's festivities. It has allowed all of them, with Fox included, to talk about the aftershock of a season fallen short.

In the years to come I can see Luck doing the same thing.    His favorite player is Peyton Manning.   Classy guy.    His father, Oliver, is a huge influence on Andrew.    Again, another classy guy.     It's rubbed off on Andrew.

 

Nothing he does in a positive way like this will ever surprise me......

So what are these elite QBs doing when their seasons are undesirabelly over? Brady is paying his $10000 fine and moving into the $20M castle, Manning meanwhile is paying a trip to Hawaii for his entire QB crew. Fun to be that rich :cheer2:

Great weekend

Luck brought Chandler Harnish with him to Hawaii. Drew Stanton's wife just had a baby so he stayed home, but Andrew offered. He discussed it in the conference call from a couple of days back.

Not unheard of but not common....

I would bet Arian Foster didnt take fly his linemen to Hawaii...as a reward...

I would suppose Russell Wilson didnt fly his backups to Hawaii...

The way I see it....Manning did it as a favor to his backups...He doesn't really need the backup QBs them to work with his new offensive coordinator.....

I'm glad to hear Luck made the same offer.....I would guess Luck feels like the two backups helped him even though they didnt play in any games...

Plus he makes a lot of money and they dont. Share the wealth ...

It's more common than you think a lot of players take teammates and coaches with them to the Pro-Bowl.  Maybe not everyone but a lot do this has been done for years.  Still nice of the players to do but nothing unheard of.

I didn't say everyone I said it happens more often than you think.  There is normally two to three stories about guys taking their teammates or coaches every year around the Pro-Bowl.

He didn't need to, most of his O-line was voted to the Pro Bowl anyway lol.

I think its great that these guys did that for the back ups. Shows that they are team players and a little extra practice time only makes the younger guys better. Great news on Stanton being a new daddy, Congrats to him. And Peyton classy as always.

    • https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4wVAee2z-aE   I don't mean to sound condescending or insulting. But its frustrating to me how hard it is to scout for one, and how often people are wrong. I'm wrong about expectations from players sometimes, and but with the exception of alshon Jeffries, my scouting predictions have been really good for about 7 years.    My favorite quote was saying morris Claiborne was a bumb and I put Casey heywars as my top 3 corner in the draft when about 6 or 7 were in front of him. I think he was my 2nd. Not to brag or nothing.    But if you dont see a bigger, and somehow stronger Dwight freeney out of this dude, I dont know what to tell you. This is an easy pick up, no trade needed at 15. He a day one starter   
    • Oh yeah genius. How many times do you see qbs, especially at WVU getting sacked in wildcat offenses. Its designed to get rid of the ball in seconds.    You can't judge of one game, and he played with a very high motor. Which is more than I van say about bejorn, give up on the play warner.    You guys are really that blind you can't see the Shir speed and acceleration off the snap?    You can't see the force and quickness of his spin moves?   You can't see his knack for rushin hands up.    You can't see the power in his bullrush? Are you kidding me?   And BTW, this is a breakdown video of every play he was involved in.   This is not a highlight tape. Highlight tapes are for kids. Breakdown videos are for ametuer nfl scouts. Real scouts have all the film.    Let me post a highlight video so you can see the differnce
    • I think it would also help to see if converted players (went from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB, or vice versa) are riskier choices than players who stay in the same system. 
    • He's also noted for his coverage ability. But yeah I need to see what he does at the combine first. 
    • I agree. Like i said i have no issue in drafting a DE if it is BPA, just that i wouldnt single out the position as a "major need". I think it is definitely a need, but not on the same level as olb at the moment. Not to the same level where that if there was 1 olb and 1 de of similar grade available at our pick that i would choose the de over the olb. To me, for it to be a major need it would have to be to the point where i would be very unhappy if nothing was done at the position by the end of the offseason. I could live with DE position as it is. But I  would be livid if maggitt and Ayers are our starting OLBs week 1.   I think we are basically in agreement and just getting caught up in semantics. We are saying the same thing, im just on the left of it looking right and you are on the right looking left (if that makes any sense).
