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.
