Why wouldn't he be a good fit?You didn't really give any type of feedback,but sarcasm.

I'll start it off.

1) We just got OUT of a situation where there was the appearance of nepotism and coming up upon one of the biggest decisions of the franchise you want to hire the father of the person who is at the heart of that decision.

Sure...why not?The manning's have been great for our organization and conducted themselves with class throughout the years.I would consider him.

Have you seen enough from people on here to realize that may not have been the best suggestion.

So what?They will learn to shut their mouths and keep it FOOTBALL RELATED.If they don't like it,then they don't have to reply.It was a suggestion,because we're currently looking for a new GM and Irsay also stated he's willing to look outside the box.

He has always been involved within that organization.Yes,i'm aware it's mainly as a radio/tv personality.He raised two(should've been three) elite H.O.F. sons.So he must have a knack for something.He would make a good GM,in my opinion.

So in other words, he has not worked for the Saints front office. At least not in any capacity that would qualify him to run a football team.

How does being a father to a HOF QB qualify that person to run a football team?

Should we advocate interviewing Tom Brady's dad? I mean his son won more superbowls that Archies son's combined. That has to make him more qualified to be our GM right?

Archie could sell an ounce of sperm on ebay for 10k, but that doesn't qualify him for GM.

Manning is also familiar with our organization as well.I see only 2,maybe 3 choices as our next GM(telesco,angelo or irsay himself).I'm curious to see if archie could contribute something.

Jerry Angelo? Have we even interviewed him?

And Irsay is not going to be the GM. He already tried that and aknowledged he wasn't the right guy for the job a long time ago.

What exactly is it that you think Archie will contribute, aside from being completely unlikely to cut or trade his son?

    • https://www.stampedeblue.com/2024/4/1/24118330/i-pity-the-fool-mock-draft     Trade Colts 2nd round (440)   For   Packers pick 58 and 91 (456)   Packers select Zach Frazier C West Virginia 6'2 314lbs Logic: Packers replace Jon Meyers who gave up 5 sacks and had a pff grade of 55.8   Colts trade pick 58 and Kwity Paye   For   Saints Marshon Lattimore CB 27 years old and a conditional 2025 4th (depending on snaps could be 3rd) From Over the cap The team trading for Lattimore would take on his contract as is. They would have the decision to either pick up the option to defer the cap charges or to simply take all of the hit in 2024. Here is the cost on the cap if the team picks up the option in the contract:   Year Salary Cap Charge Dead Money 2024 $15,000,000 $12,000,000 2025 $18,000,000 $0 2026 $18,500,000 $0 2027 (void) $0 $0 Lattimore has no guaranteed money in his contract after 2024 so there is nothing that would lock a team into him beyond this year. Colts Logic: We wanted some experience in the secondary. We wanted a shutdown corner. So we give the Saints a offer they can not refuse. In the first 2 rounds we address most of our defensive woes. Saints Logic: Saints are switching to a 4-3 defense this year and just let Michael Thomas walk. They have always been cap wizards but this may be the year to start a new with the changes listed above. Lattimore has only played 17 games these past two seasons and even though he's a top 12 CB when healthy he has been dinged up. Kwity Paye can start at DE until Chase Young is healthy.
    • Ballard should have never cut him. I want Ogletree on the team as well considering charges were dropped (I believe), but his whole fiasco with his fiance where battery might have been involved was way more of a sensitive topic and understandable of being cut for than Rodgers friend betting 1k on his account on a Colts run stat over/under. That's the worse thing Rodgers was found guilty of, and now we have Colts fans trying to convince themselves we need a RD1 CB pick after 3 were chosen in last year's draft...    He did a podcast detailing what he bet on with Franklin and Speed in case others haven't seen it. Much ado about nothing imho and it's obvious the locker room still like him/didn't think he was negatively trying to affect the outcome of games, and they would know best on that over anyone.    
    • Yeah... I don't buy it... BUT... if there is someone you might have to take seriously about something like that... it's Jeremiah. Remember how he absolutely killed that last mock with predicting the exact trade and exact picks for the Texans? Lets see if he has similarly good sources on the Colts... 
    • There're a couple of things that seems off about this to me.   1) The Colts moving up in the 1st. 2) Moving up for a CB after Ballard just spent the pre-draft presser complementing the CB group.
    • What he “projects” and what he would play are two completely different things. Idk why people sleep on DeJean, he’s going to surprise a lot of people wherever he ends up going. The kid is a DAWG.
