Breer: Peyton poised for possible executive role after retirement


Recommended Posts

Problem with that is he would actually bring some intelligence and knowledge to the game so ESPN is defiantly out of the question.

I think Peyton would be excellent and I much rather hear him than say Troy Aikman.

I would love to hear him cover games. That would be amazing. I like Peyton a lot as person; he's a great guy.

The Colts need a good person to work hands on with Luck, and Manning is not going to be the one to do it. My gut tells me he goes into politics after he's done with football, since he's technically, already treated like a politician anyway. 

 

Just cause he was an awesome quarterback don't mean he's going to be an awesome coach or GM. This could backfire.

As far as an executive position goes....everyone in Tennessee not named Marcus Mariota seems to have the word "interim" attached to their official title.

If he's truly eyeing a post-career executive position, I'd put my money on the Titans.

As far as an NFL ownership?

I hope/dream/hallucinate that in a few years Peyton leads an ownership group in the purchase of a majority interest in...yes...the Indianapolis Colts, with Peyton the managing general partner.

With all due respect to Carlie Irsay...that, IMO, would be the best possible stewardship of the Colts franchise.

Now that I'm done planning out other people's lives I'm gonna get me a coffee. :P

Jim Irsay is only 56. I'm thinking from his cold dead hands is the only way that would happen.

I've always assumed Peyton would go into commentating over coaching...

& I agree, with his sense of humor, knowledge, and overall mental approach to the game, I expect he would be amazing...

I still think when Peyton retires, he'll take some time off from football and focus on his family. He doesn't have to be in a rush to come back, and honestly he doesn't owe anyone anything. The man can do as he pleases. 

I would think so as well, but Peyton seems like a guy that eats, breathes and sleeps football.  He actually looks forward to training camp.  Guarantee, he doesn't stay away from the sport for too long in some capacity, whether it's commentary, coaching or management.

I hope Peyton stays in football in some capacity. It would be weird to see him disappear completely. I do think he may try something different like acting.

Peyton does have a knack for comedy & making fun of his celebrity status. He was hilarious on SNL being a bad influence on small kids AMF.

First of all, as a 59 year-old....thanks for saying he's "only 56"! :)

You're probably right, but if the Irsay family ever did decide to cash out I'd be rooting for Peyton all the way.

He'd no doubt run a first class operation from top to bottom.
