King Colt

Why Did Elway Refuse To Play For The Colts When Drafted?

Recommended Posts

What did the Colts not getting Elway have to do with the Colts getting Manning?

I would imagine perhaps the organization could have been better heading towards the 98' draft which would have put the Colts out of the running for Peyton. Just a thought.

I guess if we had Elway then we might not have had that pick to take Manning. Elway didnt retire till 99. Who knows though. But really doesnt have much to do with getting Manning imo.

The things no one mentions, despite what you think of their actions and how they did it, both John Elways and Eli Manning were correct. Elway would not have made the Colts a great team because Bob Irsay was a horrible owner. Eli would have put up big numbers in SD, but here he is getting ready to play in his second SB while SD is best known for going 14-2 and being one and done in the playoffs.

    • By the way....   for those worried about this signing....     why?   We’ve got next to nothing invested in him.   Likely NFL minimum with little to no up front money.   If he acts up we cut him straight away and it costs us nothing.       Nothing.   What’s the downside?   If he makes the team he’d replace Walker as the PS quarterback.   He’s not a likely candidate for the 53 on 2019.   Maybe in 2020.   Ballard has said he thinks he can save troubled players.   I think this is his first attempt with the Colts.   I support his effort.   It he succeeds the Colts might someday come out of this with a backup QB.   I’m happy to take that. 
    • This is awesome, lol....wonder if McDonald’s will have a new sponsor!?!     https://mobile.twitter.com/NBCSCubs/status/1130968691070443521?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1130968691070443521&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cubshq.com%2Fupdate%2FWATCH-Rizzo-If-eating-McDonalds-is-embarrassing-you-might-not-be-American-26480
    • I don’t think I would. I really like Twitter for what it was meant to be...instant information. I think if you use it as such...you can avoid the downside. 
    • NB;   I came into the series thinking Toronto is the better team but the results haven't show that until Tuesday. Brooke Lopez and Niko Mirotic ..George Hill? We love Hill in Indy but he's never done what he's doing for the Bucks.   Marc Gasol is a great player..I dont know why he was so shy and hesitant in the first two games. Player for player..Toronto should be winning
    • And here is the actual NFL draft profile that was alluded to,  but NOT linked.    I'm linking it.   And, Kelly had a solid draftable grade and was called a possible low-level starter.    So, clearly he might also be considered a decent back-up, which is all anyone is talking about here.   Kelly's profile.   Not a first rounder,  but not a camp body either.   Possible Brissett replacement in 2020 if he leaves.   http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/chad-kelly?id=2557869
