This Franchise Is In This Position This Year Because Of Peyton

You can blame Irsay or Polian or the coaches, but the ultimate blame falls on Peyton. When you have a player that takes up the amount of cap space he does then you really limit yourself to other talent you can bring to your team. Just think of the other talent this franchise could have brought in if Peyton say takes just half of the monies he is getting has gotten. I think you have to look at the overall greed of Peyton and a couple of the other "top" wage earners on this team as to why we are where we are now. I mean really, can someone here tell me how Peyton couldn't live very comfortably on half of the income he has been and will be paid.

Just when I thought one of your moronic rants could not be topped you type this garbage.You have to start this stuff for effect, Because could you really be this STUPID!!!, Wow why did I, take the bait. Breaking news story all nfl players will give back 50% of there pay so incompetent coaches can compete. Dude please check yourself, and I thought I was good at making myself look silly.

It is all about cap space, teams have X amount of dollars to work with and when you have 3-4 players taking up a HUGE amount of that cap space you have limited abilities to fill out the rest of the roster. If Peyton and are other high priced players actually cared about the team, they could have taken less and still came out very well paid. I'm sorry but there is no athlete worth 28 million dollars a year and that huge of a hit on your overall teams cap space.

Sorry numbers don't lie.

Yeah, you're right. With Manning we're a double digit win team. Without him we're favorites to go absolutely winless.

You want to complain about someone's salary, why not pick a guy like Reggie Wayne or Robert Mathis who have done precisely without Manning. If there is anything this season proved it's that we haven't been paying Manning enough. How much are we paying Dallas Clark for his 20 yards a game? You know what Dwight Freeney's done the past 4 games? 3 Tackle. Three. Freaking. Tackles.

So you are telling us that Bill Polian completely mismanaged the salary cap by overpaying marquee players?

Thank you for putting the blame where it belongs!

Yes Bill is partically responsible for this. But think of the outcry from the fans had Bill not resigned Peyton or the other players and instead just let them walk. Again how much money is enough?

No question I have issues with all of our high priced players making to much. Think if each one took on average about 20-30% less and what the team could have done with that money.

Yeah, because if there is anything history has proven, it's that Bill Polian is willing to make decisions about this team based on what the fans want.

Lol the OP has to be a troll. Are the Patriots struggling trying to put talent around brady with his contract? No they still make a splashes in FA like Ocho CInco. The Colts have many Overpaid players other then Peyton that we should be looking first.

I guess we'd better use stronger duct tape next time, seems someone escaped from the rafters at LOS. I thought we did a pretty good job taping him up there, but I guess not.

DN, you have any idea how free markets work? DN, do you know that Peyton Manning has on multiple occasions given money back the Colts in his contract so that the team may pay other players? DN - oh nevermind, you are incapable of reasoned thought, so any more effort is a waste of time and energy. Besides, my father always taught me not to argue with idiocy, because often they just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. Good day to you sir.

OK, this post is pretty much borderline inciting and baiting. It's documented that Peyton has renegotiated his contract multiple times in the past to free up money for the team to use, and has publicly stated he will accept a lower value contract in order for the team to have more resources for other players. So simple facts contradict your assertions about "the overall greed of Peyton". When you post something so obviously inflammatory that contradicts fact, you really look like you are seeking to generate a reaction.

Looking at the rest of the thread, it's clear that you got some reaction and that some people know a duck when they see/hear one.

So, I'm going to close this thread, and suggest that you be a lot more careful about inciting and baiting in future topics that you create.

    • Edge Austin Booker (Kansas) – Was the most productive pass-rushers this season earning an 83.6 pass-rush grade.  25 total pressures and 6 sacks with a 16.6% pass-rush win rate.  Had him with a Round 2 grade for a while now.   OL Cooper Beebe (Kansas State) – Jack of all trades OL No matter where Cooper Beebe lines up, he produces elite play. At right tackle in 2020, he was a PFF honorable mention All-Big 12 honoree. As a left tackle in 2021, he was named first-team All-Big 12. In 2022 at left guard, Beebe was a second-team All-American.  Beebe's 94.0 pass-blocking grade over the past two seasons led all offensive linemen in college football. During that span, he didn’t allow a sack on 770 pass-blocking snaps.  Beebe is the only FBS guard who ranks in the top five in both PB (4th) and RB (2nd).  He still hasn’t allowed a sack since the 2020 season. 2023 earned college football midseason all-America First Team.  After 9 weeks leads all offensive guards with an overall 83.9 PFF grade who is top 3 in both pass-blocking (3rd) and run-blocking (2nd).  Beebe hasn’t allowed a sack since 2020.  To me got that borderline Round 1-2 grade.   Beebe might sneak late into Round 1 much like Cole Strange (Patriots) in 2022. 
    • I think you’re a little off on saying grades in the 60’s are for backups.   Without even looking I can say with confidence that all 32 teams have starters with grades in the 60’s.      In other words, it’s not the 90’s are an A, the 80’s are a B, the 70’s are a C and the 60’s a D.   PFF grades don’t work that way at all.   If you’ll notice, any player with grades in the 60’s have a light green color.  The 70’s have a darker green color.   Green is a starter level grade.   Honestly, I’ve seen some players who start have grades in the 50’s.   It happens.   You just don’t want it too often.     Hope that clarifies.   If you have questions I’m always here.    
    • Adebawore is fast.  Still wonder if he may be better suited to drop 25 pounds and move to linebacker (SLB).  Really not a big shocker to see defensive lineman struggle within years 1-2 before they do well but not often the case. 
    • Yeah Franklin Pff grade is 60.9 and EJ Speed is 65. Which 60-69 is considered a grade you would expect from a backup.  Now I don’t always agree with their grades, it does reflect how I have seen them play, they are good backups but we need starters. 
    • Off the top of my head, the Bears gave up two 3’s and a 4.   Might’ve been one 3, and two 4’s.   The points are the difference at the top of the draft when a team is moving up from 3 to 2.     As for everything else, we’ll just agree to disagree.
