  1. I'm not arguing this... my point is that through their first 75 games in the NFL, Luck has been better...Peyton went on to have the best career of any QB...but Luck is still very early into his career. As big a Peyton fan as I am, as a COLTS fan, I hope for our sake, that Luck has the better career when it's all said n done!
  2. While i dont disagree that Manning was the best to ever do it... Many who arent old enough to have watched every snap in his career, do not remember that he struggled in the beginning... he wasnt always the surgeon on the field that he looked for the last 2/3 of his career. I'm sure you remember his 6 int game vs the Chargers... if Luck had a game like that, the posters on here would be calling for his head on a platter! lol Either way, my all time favorite player is Peyton Manning. I think he is the GOAT. But Andrew is my 2nd...and i think his first 5 seasons are better than what Peyton's first 5 as for the rest of his career, we shall see!
  3. Andrew may be in his prime as far as age, but he just came off of an over 600 day break between games... The season that Peyton had his knee scoped during training camp, he took several games to shake the rust off, just like it took Andrew a few games to do so this year... Counting this season, Andrew is on his 6th season (75 total games played) ... when compared to Peyton through his first 5 seasons payed (80 games) this is how they compare: TD: 138 (Peyton) vs 144 (Andrew) INT: 100 (Peyton) vs 73 (Andrew) Yards: 20,618 (Peyton) vs 20,569 (Andrew) Remember, this is with Andrew playing 5 fewer games and also playing some of those rusty (this year). SO, if we use AGE as "Prime", then would Peyton really have this team undefeated as you claimed? Let's not forget that he also had a good/great run game with Edge and also had Marvin Harrison this whole time and Reggie/Dallas part of that time. I'm the biggest Peyton fan and think he was the best ever...but i think my question about how Andrew wouldve done with his team is a fair one.
  4. The team i mentioned was the 2005 Colts... i'm just imagining if Luck had that team to play with for a decade (with a few parts moving to and from, obviously), just how good they would be
  5. In my own opinion, Peyton is the best QB to ever play... I'm old enough to have watched his entire career in the NFL... That said, i have been thinking lately and wondering to myself... As good as Luck does with such little talent... Imagine if Luck had this team: LT: Tarik Glenn LG: Ryan Lilja C: Jeff Saturday RG: Jake Scott RT: Ryan Diem RB: Edgerrin James WR: Marvin Harrison ; Reggie Wayne ; Brandon Stokely TE: Dallas Clark And on D, Marlin Jackson, Nick Harper, Freeney, Mathis, Brackett, Cato June, Bob Sanders... My point is... if we had that kind of talent surrounding Andrew Luck, just how good would he be/would that kind of team be? It's hard to imagine (for me personally) anyone being better than Peyton... but it's also hard for me to imagine that team losing a game with Luck as the QB. Just food for thought.

    Ballard's 2017 draft vs. Grigson's 2012

    Let's also realize that Grigson had the 1st pick in each round of his 1st draft, while Ballard had the 15th. Big difference between the two!

    Colts sign Eric Ebron (merge)

    So he's that bad?

    Colts now at top of Salary Cap list

    Teams DO do just what I's how Jax has had so much to spend the past couple years. Teams go from worst to 1st often, with a good QB especially. None of the "top guys" this year are worth the $ they are getting...once we have a year or two under our belt with this coaching staff and draft class etc, look for us to spend what it takes to have a contending team for the long haul. Of the "top guys" this year, how many had everyone wanted so badly before this season? Many came out of nowhere in a contract year. Top players don't often reach FA, and none of this year's guys would have put us over the hump. In another year, that may be a different story and there may be better players to sign. Just my honest opinion.

    Colts now at top of Salary Cap list

    Everyone needs to realize something while they are complaining that we aren't spending all of our available money... This money will roll over to next year and the year after if need be... By that time, with a couple good drafts, we could be serious contenders who are just a couple pieces from a long run of Super Bowl contention. Wouldn't you rather have this money available then, to go after a few big names to really put us over the hump, instead of blowing it all now on mediocre players? Am I the only one who sees this as the plan they have in place?
  10. I would rather have Luck and the picks that we currently have, along with our cap space in FA...personally, now that we have better coaching...i thing things will turn around a LOT faster than people want to admit, once Andrew is back.

    Mock Draft

    I can stay under the cap and build a pro bowl team on Madden, too lol!

    Mock Draft

    I traded back several times in multiple rounds...gained future 1st round picks that I then used to trade back for players I wanted, also traded our 2020 1st. It's totally unrealistic, otherwise I should be our GM, and could build the team of the future in 1 year lol

    Colts to Interview McDaniels on Thursday

    a lot of people also may not realize that after the whole Denver thing, McDaniels specifically reached out to Tony Dungy and asked for advice and help...and they've remained close ever since... The guy was 33 years old in Denver and a person changes a lot in 10 years, and Josh is no exception. From all accounts i've heard and read, he is a completely different guy now, more humble and more willing and eager for input from guys such as Tony Dungy etc. That put with the fact that no one will argue he has a GREAT football mind, and i think this would be an ideal team and situation for him to prove what he is capable of. Just my .02

    2018 will be a very telling season for Ballard

    I think that they knew Luck may miss the year, and if so, saw it as an opportunity to luck into a good draft position...and also to evaluate the players currently on the team. I also believe them knowing Luck would likely AT LEAST miss significant time, is why they kept Pagano and staff. Why install a completely new system when your star QB wont have any opportunity to learn/practice it? I think this is also the reason that Gruden etc took a pass last year but still have interest in the job...they wanted to make sure Luck comes back healthy and didnt want this "down" season on their resume'. Not trying to sound like a conspiracy guy, but we went through the exact same dog n pony show the year that Peyton missed the whole season. Irsay saying all the right things to sell tickets...he even went so far as to say that Peyton would be back with the team the next year, even if we drafted Luck...and we all know how that played out. Yes, it was a good business decision...and was best for all involved. Allowed Luck to play, Colts to save money and Peyton to win another ring. With all that said, i do think Ballard is the guy who will do a great job...and i look forward to next year! Will be an eventful off season, for sure... new coaches, healthy Luck and lots of $ in FA...along with a strong draft position. Everyone who says Gruden hasnt proven anything and has been gone too long... I disagree. He has a great football mind and makes ordinary QBs look good...and has won a Super Bowl with a bad QB and if not for the tuck rule, wouldve went with the Raiders, too...he made their aging QB look like an all pro. Let Ballard pick the players and let Gruden coach the team...and let Peyton run the show...and i think we would see a huge difference!
