    Colts are signing Justin Houston [Merge]

    Best news I have heard in a while!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Peyton Manning on MNF

    I don't see it happening. Why would he spent 24 weekends away from his family and watching Eli, Tennessee, Indy and Denver around the country all season as he does now? Would PM be as good as Romo or better? Yes, probably. But, he doesn't need the pressure of needing to live up to that.

    Jay Glazer on the Herd

    In some ways, it worked for the Broncos a couple of years ago when they had Peyton. It took two years, but they got a ring after signing Ware, Talib, Ward and Sanders. In some ways, the Browns current haul is similar in turns of potential impact.

    Still a Mayfield injury away from last place.

    Colts sign Devin Funchess (Merge)

    It's a low-risk move with potentially a big pay off. Ballard strikes again IMO. I can see a WR being drafted in the first three rounds.
  7. For those of us at work, what did he say about Deflategate?

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    What about his record as a DC? Aside from a couple of last minute drives finished by clutch Viniteri kicks, you can argue that Tom Brady already had three rings before he was Tom Brady. `It is hard to deny that those three rings were led by an all-time great defense*.

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    I was more referring to the multiple threat "pick your poison" offense which was at its best when Stokley was healthy and playing well and Manning was using Clark as a chess piece. Those couple of seasons set the wheels in motion towards the pass-happy NFL we see today IMO. You can argue that the Patriots took it to another level with Welker, Gronk and Hernandez. Then, Manning got one back with Julius Thomas as his new chess piece before the Broncos got sick of him not run blocking which was perhaps the death knell of PM's days as an elite QB. Anyway, I digress...

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    It's also a copy cat league and Manning laid the foundation for the pass-happy league we see now following his 2004 season - which had he not spend almost two full games of that season on the bench, would have been close to 60 TD's. It's no coincidence that BB and Sean Payton evolved their schemes after 2004.

    The Patriots wouldn't have needed to steal defensive signals from the opposition during the 00's if they had Manning.

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    Oh for sure, I agree. I just think imaging the same scenario with Big Ben adds weight to the pro-Manning discussion.

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    We never will. Although could you imagine the effect BB (if cloned) would have had on a team like the Steelers. Of course, Big Ben has two rings anyway, but with BB they would not have had the mid-season slumps that have inevitably taken them out of playoff and HFA contention. Big Ben would have more rings than Brady if there were two BB's in the AFC. You will probably need to clone Ernie Adams too FWIW.

    Fair. Their RT was dominated all season long and the LT had a rough day as well.

    Why Brady is NOT the GOAT

    Dungy had nothing to do with the Colts offense. John Fox was universally trashed in Denver when he had Manning and also had nothing to do with the offense. He made several coaching blunders in the Flacco hail mary playoff loss, had nothing to do with the 2013 record-breaking offense, and it was reported he was leaving for Chicago the morning before they lost to the Colts in the playoffs in 2014 as he and Elway had a falling out mid-season. Kubiak's deficiencies are well known and certainly all the bootlegging practice Manning was doing contributed to his body breaking down. You can argue that with Manning's locker room leadership and Wade Phillip's D, any head coach could have won that ring. The decision he made to put Manning in for Osweiler got them HFA and is maybe the best decision of his career.
