Just said he was in a suite. I'm sure he doesn't want to be ask any more questions. This is Eli's Night and the media needs to let Eli have his win.

oh WISH TV said they talked to Cooper and he said that Peyton was a little worried about jixing Eli by coming tonight and he did not go. I think Peyton just didn't want to over shadow Eli in any shape or form tonight. Credit to Peyton for litting Eli have his moment today rather he was at the game or not.

He was at the stadium, but he was in the weight room rehabbing.

Seriously, though, I cannot fathom the Super Bowl being his Indy, his brother playing in the game, and he doesn't go to the game? Talk about superstition. He better be throwing one heck of a victory party at his place tonight!

Well Archie I thought said he was in a suite so who knows. I would think he would have been somewhere. Just staying out of sight for sure.

I know in his post game presser Eli said he hadn't talked to Peyton yet but he had talked to his dad and Cooper. With that said that doesn't mean Peyton wasn't there. Peyton might have stayed in the suite or just gone to the lockerroom to avoid the media and let Eli have his moment.

Kinda sad that he can't just go and watch the game without it being a media circus.

If I was in his shoes that's what I would have done but if I was a betting person I bet he was at the game. I don't think he would have stayed away just out of sight.

Your right but it will end someday and maybe not until March 8th but let him have some space.

I thought I read somewhere that he was gonna host a Super Bowl party at his house so I assumed he wouldn't be there. If he were there, one of the cameras would have found him.

I feel bad for Eli and I'm sure Peyton is upset, too. As he was being announced MVP he was being asked about Peyton. Come on, let the guy have one night.

Eli gets uncomfortable with any questions comparing him to Peyton, but I don't think he cares about spotlight.

Saw an interview with Archie where he said he hadn't seen Peyton yet after the game, but it sounded like he meant he was in the building somewhere. Last time around, Peyton watched in a separate booth from the rest of the family and was caught on camera but Archie wasn't.

Peyton surprised Eli at the San Fran game.

Irsay will tweet at 1:00 AM and tell us there will be a statement released tomorrow to tell us where Peyton was during the game. Personally I think he drew the short straw and had to make the beer run.

I heard 2 different stories from Indy TV stations. WISH TV said he flat out was not in the stadium. WTHR said he was up in a suite somewhere.

The highlights Irvin said "Look at that pass by Peyton" when Eli threw for the TD in the first quarter. :sigh:

They just can't let the kid have his moment.

Listen guys, if it bothered Eli to be overshadowed by peyton, he would've crumbed by the age of 10. Don't worry about Eli. You're talking about a guy who had to be dragged (more like thrown) to the front of the float by Strahan for the last ticker tape parade. He doesn't care about the spotlight.

I know Eli is Peyton's brother and that Peyton is genuinely happy for him. But knowing the kind of competitor Peyton is deep down this has got to be eating at him just a little bit. He's second fiddle in the family to Eli now in terms of championships won. If healthy, Peyton's got probably a 3 year window to do some work. I think Eli winning it in Peyton's backyard will help to motivate Peyton that much more. Last time Peyton won it all...Eli followed him up. Now let's see if Peyton can follow up Eli.

I heard someone on the radio a couple of weeks ago say that he felt like if Eli won it was going to help drive Peyton to come back. Not that he wouldn't be thrilled for Eli but just the natural brother rivalary thing. If anyone watched the Super Bowl pregame show they did a story on when Eli first dunked on Peyton when they were playing basketball and Eli said Peyton didn't talk to him for the rest of the day and the next day. So I think there is something to be said for this will drive Peyton to try to come back. With that said I also agree with what Oliva said on channel 13 tonight no one was happier for Eli tonight than Peyton was.

After seeing Eli win 2 rings I cannot stop thinking: Has Peyton been surrounded by such a group of talents of the Giants ever? The young and talented WRs, a solid D. Peyton's team have almost always let him down by this or that way. The year they did just fine, they won the SB.

2003-2007 were some pretty loaded Colts teams. Two of those years we just ran into a better team on the road in New England. In 2005 we feel flat on our face because of rest and Dungy's Son (I have no way of knowing how much that impacted us but I am sure it did when you listen to the players on that team talk about it.) and then 2006 we were a team on a mission and put it all together. 2007 was a very good team that got the worst possiable match up they could get in the Chargers. I think had we gotten another shot at New England that year we would have beaten them but that's coulda,woulda, shoulda. Also the 2009 team was pretty special team that just had an off night on the worst possiable night.

We have always had talented receivers, but in the playoffs they seem to take the back seat on the aggressive part to the opposing Dbs. It seemed Marvin didn't go 100% out in the playoffs.

You know I rewatched the Bears Super Bowl last night (it's my tradation to rewatch that night before our Super Bowl) and Marvin had a better night than I think most gave him credit for. He only had 5 catches that night but they were big catches. They seemed to come on third down or at times where the Colts just really needed a catch. I know he only really had the Denver games and KC game in 2003 where he was just lights out in a playoff game but frankly how many playoff games did we have where the offense just clicked? Maybe he was the issue I don't know but it seemed like he had a few moments like the Bears game in the playoffs where we needed him he did something like the two point catch vs. the New England in the AFCCG, that's one of the best catches I've ever seen him make or when he ran down Ty Law to save a TD on an INT vs. KC in 2006 that ended up being a missed field goal.

I don't know if I would say Marvin didn't go 100% all out I just think he was the guy teams tried to take away from us first because he was Peyton's security blanket when he was in trouble he'd always go to Marvin so I think teams felt like you migt beat us but you aren't going to use Marvin Harrison to do it.

There are a few throws I think he could have been more aggressive to prevent interceptions, but that is about it.

Where do you have the Super Bowl? I have been trying to find the full game for forever. I want to watch it again.

You can get a DVD of the full run it's called the road to super bowl 41 or something. Type colts DVD into amazon and it will probably come up. I am thinking about getting the two giants ones too so I can relive the pats failing!

Oh when I say run I mean playoff run.

THIS^^^^.. Eli doesn't care....He simply is okay about being Peyton's Lil brother. That is a fact right..he is Peyton's lil brother. Eli, I felt, has always known his place and just in football.

Look at him, he could have gone all crazy after the win...but he is still all business....as if...yeah we won..AND????

I am glad we didn't see a Peyton sighting. I think Peyton knows the media circus.

So for those who were crying that he stole the spotlight and being selfish....

Peyton was there. After the game Archie said that he sat in a seperate suite away from the family like he did for Eli's last super bowl because he was being superstitious. Not sure why the cameras didn't show him but I'm sure he appreciated it

Eli just said in his MVP press conference that he spent time in private with Peyton after the game, so he must have snuck in somewhere.

I am so happy that Eli and the Giants won. Best scenario on an otherwise horrible season as a Colts fan.

a very interesting article that contrasts the way Colts & Giants drafted around a Manning

Disregard this title

The First Of The Inevitable Eli And Peyton Manning Comparisons

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Read the article its not a QB comparison but a drafting philospy thats totally different and set up 2 different teams

These are the last 3 paragraphs,

Its also written by a Colt fan posting to the stampede blue site

The Polian strategy results in a great offense but only an above average defense. The Accorsi/Reese strategy results in an above average offense but a great defense. Also, one should point out that the Accorsi/Reese model resulted in more salary cap flexibility, allowing the Giants to go after big salary free agents like Antrel Rolle ($37 million contract in 2010), Chris Canty ($42 million contract) and Plaxico Burress. Meanwhile, the Colts only signed one such free agent - Corey Simon - and it didn't end well.

As far as coaching: a wash. Tony Dungy caught a lot of grief, but YOU try to win a Super Bowl with a defenseBob Sanders is your best run defender (because your RDT is 270 lbs, your LDT is washed up, and your MLBs are nonfactors) and after him your second best DB is a 32 year old guy from the CFL. Give Dungy the Giants defense (either 2008 or 2011) and see what happens. As far as Caldwell goes: his one year with a healthy team, they were a ton of special teams breakdowns away from beating the Colts. And that is ANOTHER difference between Polian and Accorsi/Reese. The Giants had an EXCELLENT punting, kicking and coverage units that in the playoffs. Special teams set up 10 points for the Giants in the NFC title game, and 9 points against thePatriots in the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, with the exception of Adam Vinatieri, the Colts had none of those.

Bottom line: the Colts have (or had) a better QB. The Giants had the better organization and philosophy.

Great organization/philosophy with (very) good QB beats great QB and suspect organization. Which is why Jerry Reese still has his job, and the Polians do not.

http://www.stampedeblue.com/2012/2/6/2774301/the-first-of-the-inevi...

May I add that one reason of Giants success is they didnt get to playoffs all those years in a row so got some great early draft D picks, like last year wasnt Peierre Paul # 13

Thats why I say keep Manning & trade that 1st pick for a host of picks,by taking a QB # 1 and keeping Peyton saimply upgrades backup for current team, not letting us really build help for Peyton and setting him up to fail as we lose Vets to free agency, its better to get QB later and maybe a top 1 next year with all the extra picks as we build an all around team for a QB

    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      Thought I'd start a thread to gauge your comfort level at each position with the starters and depth. You can do this however you want to, I'll be ranking them and explaining my thought process.    1. ST   Vinatieri, Boomstick, Overton, best combo in the league probably. Our ST has usually ranked pretty well over the years in the Grigson era, which is a welcome change from the manning years when they were a liability.   2. DL   Surprise Surprise! I feel very comfortable with our DL group, starters and depth, assuming everyone gets through healthy. No superstars but Langford, Parry, Jones, Ridgeway, Mcgill, Kerr is a very, very solid rotation. Not to mention we'll get back our defensive MVP (in my eyes) Anderson at some point in the season. It's penetrative, disruptive and our biggest strength on defense. What a difference a year makes from when the pats just ran over chapman.   3. QB   If the past year didn't happen, this is automatically number 1, even with the lack of depth. Obviously I believe Luck will be back with a vengeance, but the proof will have to be in the pudding. I don't know enough about Tolzien to make an informed judgement, obviously his stats leave a lot to be desired. But he has great potential from talking to some packer fans and by all accounts he's a grinder.    4. OL   Could be ranked higher based on potential, but until the whole package manifests on the field, no. 4 is where they belong. Have great hopes with Philbin at the helm, and I think this will be the most tightly contested position group during training camp. Expecting Castanzo Mewhort Kelly Thornton Reitz to start. That's a good group. Depth is great as well, our 2nd team OL would read Clark Harrison Blythe Haeg Good. I'm actually comfortable putting that lineup in front of a QB. Obviously there's development needed with the rookies, but the future looks bright.   5. ILB   Another surprise pick. No superstars, but I like the quality of the depth. Jackson, Irving start with Moore, Morrison backing up. Mcnary has been solid in special teams and decent in spot duty.   6. WR   Like I said with the DL, what a difference a year makes! One of our strongest and deepest position groups last year suddenly has poor depth. Starters are still among the strongest in the league, definitely the fastest, but if any one of Hilton, Moncrief and Dorsett get injured for any significant period, we end up with the untested Bray, Tyms, Boyce, etc. An UDFA or two may make it, but in a young group where Hilton is the vet, I'll have my questions. Would love for another vet addition such as Boldin, who would definitely ease my mind depth wise.   7. TE   Allen and Doyle are solid, but after that? tons of potential but untested. Time for Swoope to step up. Griswold and Miller have flashed, we'll see where they go from here.   8. RB   Frank the tank. Turbin has bounced around numerous times, you would think he'd have found a home by now, and thinking he'll stick around here is highly optimistic. I hope he does, of course, but that's a different story. Varga flashed, but I don't think he's an answer to our RB questions long-term. I personally hope Ferguson makes it, rooting for that kid.    9. S   Pops adams is a beast. Geathers had many bright spots last year, and I hope he continues his development.. Green is a year away at least before taking up reins but his ceiling is super high. Winston guy's role is ST and I don't think it'll ever evolve past that at this point. Depth is lacking and I wish we had colt anderson who was good in spot duty last year.      10. CB   Very uncomfortable with our starters. Davis will do this thing, but I'm not happy with Robinson on the outside at all. I don't think he's an upgrade over Toler, who himself was miserable last year. Butler's getting up there in age and while decent at nickel, is simply atrocious on the outside. Smith seems to have a way to go before competing for starter snaps, and while depth seems good on paper with Tevin Mitchell, Jalil Brown, Williams, etc etc, simply the difficulty of the position mandates some discomfort, especially when said talent is unproven. Our scheme demands a lot from our corners, we aren't the panthers where you can stick a long body in there and have success.   11. OLB    I don't think I need to say much here. Rob Mathis has to have close to a career year, and our UDFAs better step up or I call a few blowouts. If we can't affect QBs, the defense doesn't get very far. Monachino will have to scheme hard.
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Prospects are not rated simply as Day 3 prospects.   Fans might do that....    bad draft analysis might do that.      But scouts and teams sure will.   They'll give him a grade so decision makers like Grigson & Pagano have some idea when a player should be drafted.     You don't want to be taking a R7 guy in the 4th Round and simply say....   "he was a day 3 prospects"   Understanding where players are properly evaluated helps teams get the most out of a draft.  
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Clark did not go a round too high.      Did someone here really say that?  (Yes, it turns out it was Gavin....)    Then they don't know the draft at all.   If Clark did go in the wrong round he should've gone in the 2nd,  and not the 3rd.     But certainly NOT in the 4th.   He has enough raw tools to justify a top-100 pick.     He went 82nd.      He went in just the right spot.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
