People are saying the bigger issue isn't whether Manning can co-exist, but whether Luck can. Some think he will want to start right away and will not be willing to sit for a few years. Not saying that's my belief, just giving the message.

Imagine seeing a healthy Peyton out there. If Peyton played all these years with neck pain, imagine what he will do when he is pain-free!

I think alot of people are missing this huge point. We're talking about a player who theoretically could have a neck that is stronger and healthier than he originally had it right before it was injured. His performance with the injury has been amazing and he's got a chance to be even better after this process is completed.

Our situation here in indy isn't the same as the lions when they picked Stafford. It's not the same as the Ravens when they picked Joe Flacco. We have a HOF QB, and the only situation that resembles the one we have here is the one in Green Bay, with Farve and Aaron Rodgers.

We are trying to stay competitive between QB's, and even tho I don't agree with the sitting of high round QB's, in this 1 instance I do. It not about his development that we need him to sit, its 100% about keeping us from going back to the Pre Manning Era. If Luck is picked 1st overall and he can't wait, even though he would no doubt be our future, then I don't think I want him. He would then not be the same kind of prospect, mentally that I would think deserved to be that pick.

message??? if you were a luck guy you would sure point out the "flaw" with manning and then post the link so we could read about it on ESPN.

Erm, stuff about how it wouldn't be ideal to be sitting behind someone else but if that's the way it is, then that's the way it is. He didn't sound happy about it but sounded as if he was a professional. I'll have a quick look.

he was asked if he would mind getting drafted by the colts and sitting behind Peyton for a couple years. And he went from calm and smoth through out the interview, to nervous and jittery.

You sure? Watch the interview again, he was more jittery at the start! Boy doesn't interview well.

thanks,

you think it would just be on espn, what a site to find it on.

With how much ESPN love their draft stuff you would, wouldn't you? Surprised it took me more than a quick search to find it to be honest, had to keep rewording it.

Watching the interview again though it doesn't seem like he'd really mind, I just think he wants to be a starter as soon as possible. Don't think we can take his body language to mean too much considering how much the manner of that result probably annoyed him.

Why would Manning have a problem with a qb learning under him in his last years? You would think he would relish in the idea of a furure replacement to keep this team on track after he is done. I fail to see the issue on Mannings side. Luck on the other hand.. who know how he really feels..

Thanks! He didn't seem too upset at the idea of sitting behind Peyton. He said he would try hard wherever he goes and do his best. And if he ends up sitting, so be it, that's how life is sometimes. I don't see anything wrong with what he said. I don't expect him to say he is going to be happy not playing. Not a big issue, in my opinion

I think the head bobbing and eye movements are what people are looking at. To me though doesn't seem bad. He does it the whole interview. Not just about the Peyton Manning questions.

Yeahh I think/hope it's just general annoyance at the result. Regardless, what Archie has said is brilliant news for anyone (like me) hoping for a sit and learn partnership between the two :)

Rememer in about July or August when Tony Dungy said Peyton Manning would have to be dead in order to miss the opener? And then Manning missed the opener, but he's not dead? That's why Archie isn't saying anything with any degree of certainty. Nobody knows anything.

As I recall, Addai implied he was throwing at game form, but that's a bit vague. I presume if it was going to Addai it was short passes. I am a bit discouraged by this referenced article as well as the lack of formal good news at this point. If his arm strength is not already good or significantly improving, we might not see much more progress.

Going back, a fusion just stabilizes the joint (and the anterior decompression might further decompress a nerve), whereas the surgery this spring 2011 to decompress only from posterior apparently didn't give him enough strength by August.

Well, there's not much to do other than wait for some formal news on this from peyton himself.

I think the jitteryness and the lack of eye contact was more due to the fact his team just lost the fiesta bowl and he probably wasn't in the mood to answer questions about his NFL future. I know that I would not feel like talking after a tough losses

He didn't say it wouldn't be ideal. He said and I'm paraphrasing he just wants to get a chance to play football and he will do what asked if him and he's looking forward to it. I'm not sure if your talking about the same interview as me but he did seem a little nervous but he's a shy guy it seems.

Why can't Archie just stop talking about this? Seriously. If I was Peyton, I would tell him to stop talking about this stuff. Don't make a story out of nothing.

I think that's what he was trying to do by saying he didn't know.

He's been involved in the college football stuff going on and with the game being played at the superdome tonight. Natural he gets asked about Peyton and I think he was trying not to give out any info.

Yeahhh I know, I pointed this out :)

Yeah I was going off memory, he didn't say it but he didn't say it'd be a dream come true :D

    • Man I feel real strong about Brian Thomas jr. I think it's on and cracking if we get him. His game is just consistent and he is such a hard cover. I like him being paired with Pittman. I really do!
    • This is probably the most exciting nonplaying event of the year and it’s tomorrow. I just hope that Balllard  and the scouting department I’ve done their job thoroughly
    • @2006Coltsbestever @NFLfan   Kirk has been treated much better and with much more respect than Wentz was treated in Indy. And was showed with Love and truckloads of money in Minnesota, and was defended constantly with much more ferocity by Vikings fans than people defending Ballard in Grievances thread.    it'd be crazy to think of injustice against Kirk for a few minority who criticize his play.    We're Going back and forth on Kirk debate which will go on for eternity, but I struck Gold when I saw recently @Superman explaining how he felt watching Wentz playing with other teams before he got to Indy and how it felt watching him play for Colts when you're emotionally invested with the franchise.    There's no other way to perfectly describe Kirk Cousins' career and his QB play.   For every fan around the NFL, especially for fantasy football fans, Kirk will be a hero and am above average QB. But, when you're emotionally invested in your favourite franchise and Kirk plays QB for your team, you would come close to understanding how excruciatingly frustrating his play and smartness and game awareness are (or shortage of them are), that all contributes to team missing playoffs many years and even when they qualify, no one sees Kirk as a threat in playoffs. Ever. Your team would be paying Elite QB Money for that, and you'd be constantly in debate with criticizers Vs defenders. Until he plays for your team, you won't realize that, and I totally understand.    Anyway, happy to pass on that frustration over to Falcons fans, they'd know soon. First of all, Kirk takes at least a season or two to trust his OL, even if you put an elite line and weapons around him, and it's all in his head. I'm going to sit back and read Falcons forums for Fun in 2024 Season! Good Times! 
    • I have no idea how it will all shake out, but I have my popcorn ready.
    • There are no owners in the NFL that are perfect people. Some owner's demons are more public, some not so much, but they all have them. There's much more to the free agency issue and the Colts than most are aware of. There are a lot of intangibles most will never consider. That said, there is more to almost every aspect of any organization that most will ever be aware of. Those are often the things that matter most.
