I never said he had bad feelings towards the Colts fans but he's not going to forget being tossed aside either.  I just don't think he has this great love for the Colts or Broncos that he does for the Vols. Not even close. 

 

I don't get why you're surprised he is saying all these nice things about the Colts publically at least of course he is someone as image conscious as he is. He also says nice things about Denver too. 

 

Would look really ungrateful if he said anything else if they are going to give you a statute and retire your number. I think he's okay with Irsay from a personal standpoint doesn't mean he wants to comeback and work for the Colts again either.

 

Its a nice walk down memory lane nothing more.

 

 

Do you know Manning personally? If not how do you know what he thinks?

Just maybe he values all his playing days the same?

I'm sure each place has a special meaning to him as they were a part of his football life but its pretty obvious to anyone who he chooses to identify with the most. The Vols.

 

I don't think its a coincidence he chose the weekend they have the bye week (as do the Broncos) to have this event. Donates to the school, goes to a ton of their games and wears a ton of that awful shade of orange whenever he chooses too. He reps that school hardcore.

 

And he hasn't played for them in 20 years.

He said he will always be a Colt, he would never say that if he didn't feel that. What else more do you want. Of course he isn't going to say anything negative but he didn't have to say that either. Anyway Great win today and great weekend honoring our Hall of Fame QB.

Yes he does because he's image conscious.

 

He has also said the same about Denver and Tennessee he claims them all because they all meant something to him. Doesn't really mean that he just only cares about the Colts.

 

And that's okay too. 

 

But I don't see this leading to him running the Colts in the future either like others have speculated either.

I never said he would come back here, that might not even be a good idea but he loves Indy

I have not read this whole thread so if I am doubling any comments my apologies.

 

Our defense looked really tired in the middle of the third and through the fourth.  In fact, our offense, including JB, loaded worn down too during that period of time.

 

Lastly, I am really glad we won the game, but I sure do question some of the play calling and even some of the management by the staff.

 

The punt thing-a-ma-jig was, well another clown show.  

 

Later, when Mack was in his groove, he was sitting out.  I don't understand.  Once a back is getting vision and having success why sit him?  He cooled off and wasn't as effective.... 

 

We won so it really doesn't matter now but those are the type of things that cost us games when we are competitive with a better team.  Even if our roster improves those sort of decisions will lose games for us.  

 

Not bashing Chuck, just pointing out what I saw and what I think about it.

Maybe not you but many others have made that leap and yet if Glazer is to be believed he's considering 3 other teams not named the Colts. 

 

I personally don't see that happening either.

I don't see it either and I am ok with it. If Peyton failed here he would get trolled big timed.

That's a large part of why I hope it never happens. 

 

That and he has no experience.

What difference does it make? To the fandom of the teams he played for?

What happened to Scotland

Scotland were playing Slovenia tonight and had to win to progress into the play offs for the soccer world cup next year, the last time we were in World cup was in 1998 so the country was full of anticipation, it was in our hands and (as usual) we blew it, 1-0 up we went 2-1 down before finally drawing 2-2 thus being eliminated on goal difference.

Typical Scotland, we find new ways of being "glorious failures" each tournament.

At leasr the Colts won (eventually).

I with you, brother, but don't be dragging Dennis Eckersley into it... He'd have closed this game out in regulation. :spit:

Hi Carlos, May be a transatlantic miscommunication, I have no idea of who Dennis Eckersley is and apologies if he is a Colts legend,,,, in Scotland "by eck" is a more polite way of saying for f*** sake, a phrase I would never use on a forum such as this.

Apologies for any confusion.

I didn't notice, did TJ Green play today? Or, is he hurt... just curious

 

If he did, he sure wasn't an impact player.

Ideally it shouldn't.

 

However, sports Fans aren't rational about this sort of thing. I mean you have some people in this fanbase that were upset he didn't retire a Colt despite the fact they dumped him.

 

Not exactly rational.

 

I just accept when someone plays for multiple teams and has a significant role on each of them I just don't dismiss the possibility he cares about each of them for different reasons.

A player cant retire any team, when you go into the Hall of Fame you just go in but him saying he would always be a Colt was enough for me

I guess you forgot Irsay asking Manning to sign a one day contract to retire a Colt he chose not to. Now many say it was because of him technically being under contract with the Broncos. However the Broncos wouldn't have kept him from retiring a Colt if that was what he really wanted to do. 

 

In the HOF you're right it doesn't matter both teams will be acknowledged as they should be.

If you don't think Elway wouldn't have a problem you don't know him too well.

    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
    • The Colts are to the Texans what the Pats used to be to the Manning Colts. Texan fans hate the Colts with a passion. I never wear any of my Colts shirts when they play here in Houston.
    • O'Brien is in his last year if the Texans don't make the playoffs.
