Nobody can make a team better by himself than Peyton Manning. So him with Elway and then Rice right behind.

 unitas , then jim Brown, he never needed to find holes, he just ran over anyone in his way and made own hioles , I can picture him Vs an entire team  & no OL in front of him on 3rd and short and just getting it easily

Can't really argue against Elway....take QB out of the conversation and it would have to be Reggie White

Well, let's hope you're running a system where the QB takes 3 steps and throws it to a spot on the field. haha

I agree. He has been the #1 pick that has done most with less, IMO.

Peyton Manning, He makes your O Line better as well as your wr's and can bail your defense out time after time after time

Before I even opened this thread I was going to say this but then this thought occurred to me...

... and I decided I was going to try and trade my first overall pick for the rights to Bill Walsh instead.

I can absolutely see an argument for Elway or Rice; however, I'm going to take Walter Payton all the way. Sweetness had heart that some teams never witness. Regardless of who was around him, he elevated people's play. Payton with a solid QB and you have one nasty offense.

Thats same reasoning I Imagine  I picked JIM Brown ,

 

but I  saw them all   play , Sandews in person alot as   live 4 miles north of Detroit since 1980 , sweetness was sweet, so wsa Gale Sayers, and imagine if a ceratin oakland raider , Marcus Allen was allowed to actually play after his first few years but Allen formed a stormy relationship with owner Al Davis stemming from a contract dispute where Davis referred to Allen as a "cancer to the team ", and then o soon made him 3rd and then 4th string back before trading him way late in career in 93 to KC to team with a late Montana and they almost took it ASFC championship if remember right

 

Just stayed old school with Unitas first

HB-Barry Sanders(He did not need an offensive line)

FB-Lorenzo Neal

WR-Jerry Rice

TE-Tony Gonzales

Elway was better.

Yes. If I were ranking QBs, I would go as follows:

Brady

Elway

Montana

The thing about Brady and Elway that separates them IMO from the pack is the fact that they took lousy teams to multiple SBs. Even though Elway did not win his first three because the NFC was so dominate, his teams in the 80's were as bad as Brady's in the 2000's. I only put Montana third because you have to given his record in SBs, playoffs overall and clutch factor. But his teams were stacked top to bottom.

Based on scarcity, I'd probably take a def player. Probably Reggie White. Or Deion Sanders.

I say this because Id gladly take a Warren Moon or Dan Fouts on the way back. Even some guys from today. Like Rodgers or Eli or even guys like Luck or RG3 waaaay later.

A Reggie White, Moon, and Singltary 1-2-3 seems like a pretty good start.

Really hard question because Manning and Johnny are almost the same. Peyton is the Johnny of his era, and Johnny was Peyton before he was Peyton. lol

 

Colts Bias :heh:

 

If it wasn't a QB then probably Jim Brown.

Love Joe Montana.

Having said that, I go Slingin' Sammy Baugh.

Most greatest versatile player of all-time.

 

I draft Sammy, I have a QB, D-back & Punter in 1 pick.

I win!

Brady took lousy teams to multiple Super Bowls? Yeah, not so much.

Brady is good, but come on that is pretty naive.

 

I can almost guarantee all Pats fans here would not agree with this.

 

I am actually dumbfounded you just said those teams were bad.

Demarcus Ware is 3-4 olb. From your list it looks like you're running a 4-3.

I know, but he can also slide down and play DE and White can play DT

Trade down to the Redskins for a lower pick... and their future first round picks for the rest of eternity. Winner.

    • I'm actually happy about it. I normally can't watch games live because I have to be at work at 1pm on Sundays. I will be able to watch almost all of it
    • A great post Restored! Thank you for your insightful perspective. 
    • Intro: What is it like to play in London? The Colts have a couple of players who have experienced playing overseas. View the full article
    • 14.30 for me too, I hope I don't sleep in, lol.   It's probably better it's on early in the morning for ye guys though. The 4.25pm kickoffs like against the Broncos and Chargers last 2 weeks are at 9.25pm across the ocean here, which means were up until about 1am on a work night. Say like last year against the Patriots in the night time kickoff, I stayed up from 1.30am to about 4.30-5.00 (ish), and then we saw that fake punt fail, I was not in a good mood Monday morning.     Honestly though, I've been a Colts fan for about 12 years. This is the first time I am getting an opportunity to see my team, so obviously hugely, hugely excited about Sunday!   Just want to wish everybody flying over a safe and happy trip. (Granted the latter may depend on the result, lol)
    • Thank you for your post OPC, particularly what I highlighted in red. You're right though. Luck's early success in the league getting 1 step further every yr. minus DeFlate Gate has created an aura of playoff expectations that may not be easily achieved every season. Also, I like what you said about the fact that we all have habits good or bad that we will never change. The same is true of QBs. Some QBs are risk takers & with risks come both touchdowns & turnovers.    I always cut Chewy a ton of slack because I know our running game isn't great & he always owns his picks saying "my fault". That's why I love the guy because he always takes responsibility on bad decision making himself even if the turnover isn't really his fault.    I agree with you. Luck is just starting his NFL career & we as fans have to let the game come to him on his own timetable not what we or the media think his awareness level in yr 5. Like you say, Andrew has more football ahead of him than behind him. Well said.

    • 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.
