No joke I saw them the other day at Kroger! Was almost tempted to get them.

According to Wikipedia, they reintroduced Zima last July.  I bought a sixpack when it first came out.  Had my fill with that.

To make them mad, just say 3-1 Peyton in Title Games. That will get them going or say Peyton has 5 MVP's to Tom's 2 lmao. They will just say Rings at that point.

Lol I'm convinced that's why Brady is sticking around. Catch mvps and records. I wear my colts gear with pride. But I wanna throw up whenever I see a pats logo. Especially tonight. This isn't healthy

All have their strengths and weakness in terms of argument. 

 

Montana never lost lost a SB and was lights out. But he had Rice for a good part.

 

Brady has 5 rings. But Pats without him are 14-6.

 

Manning has just about all the records but only 2 rings. And one of those he was along for the ride.

 

At the end of the day, it’s gonna have more to do with the laundry you wear than any real objectivism. But the REAL answer is Manning.

Manning won with 2 different teams so he does have that. That is huge and something people overlook. No other QB has ever done that.

He wont catch Peyton in MVP's, it's 5-2 but he may beat his TD's and Yards.

Right and I’m sure Brady has other things other than rings for his argument as well.... none come to mind but nonetheless I’m sure they’re there.

Manning was not the reason why Denver won SB 50.  He stunk it up.  Denver's defense was overwhelming.

Who cares he still won and is the only QB to win with 2 different teams. Ben stunk against Seattle and Tom stunk against the Rams but nobody cares, they won that is all that matters in the record books.

Montana was not better than Brady yes he’s undefeated and that’s also a dif era where you could maintain a super team due to the no cap casualties.  Manning is the closest person you can say is better than Brady based on his MVP awards and bowl wins  these two are the only ones you can debate about for the best qb ever Manning was the first to memorize how defenses functioned in all aspects Brady soon followed in his steps with that.. Brady benefited from having a better team as well but in the crunch time situations there’s no picking manning over Brady and I love manning hardcore I can’t blame manning for some of his clutch failures but you have to recognize that Brady nearly always come through in the most crucial times to lead his team to wins even in his Super Bowl losses He Put his team up in a clutch moment just to have his defense ruin his moment with little to no time left to come back

While I agree that D was the reason they won, he did manage the game. Still had to score SOME points.

Read the article I linked above.  Defense set up both touchdowns. Manning did nothing good.

brady didnt carry his team to those early super bowls either

I know, Ben was awful against Seattle and nobody ever brings that up. Brady had 133 yards passing vs the Rams and was bad, like I said who cares as long as your team wins that means your QB didn't screw it up. Manning had to carry his teams his whole career, then the 1 time he his D carries him, nobody wants to give him credit. He actually played Good vs NE to get there so that needs to be factored in.

Manning has more fourth quarter comeback wins. Sorry but I’d go with Manning with the game on the line.

Also, it was much harder for a QB in those days. Players got away with near muggings against offensive players.

A lot of people will bring up his INT against the Saints to why he isn't clutch but Brady had one against us in the AFC Title Game that was just as bad IMO. Manning has been clutch a lot.

"Nothing special?" One pick to a defensive end, one lost fumble, and a passer rating of 56.6. Sounds pretty special to me.

They don't get by NE without Peyton so yes he was special. It's about time his Defense helped him, the guy was the whole team his whole career until his last year in Denver.

You’re right and how many of those games contributed to winning playoff games or making it to the bowl or in fact winning the bowl.  Not to discredit manning Brady does it when it matters on a bigger stage as much as I hate to say it

Yep! That is what none of these Manning haters will admit too. They say he beat Rex Grossman in the SB to poo poo our win. They are so dense to realize he beat the Ravens Defense with Ray and Ed and beat Tom Brady before that SB. Why not include that? They wont because they focus on the SB only. Just like Peyton played Good vs the Steelers and Pats before the SB in 2015, lets not mention that lmao

 And just imagine what would have been possible with a defense like that his entire career. If he can play just well enough to help win it and win, just...wow. Manning would probably have 10 rings or something.

They virtually all contributed to winning playoff games. Can’t make the playoffs without winning regular season.

 

Manning couldn’t fall back on his defense or his genius coach like Brady could/did. Brady might read defenses but Manning was the O coordinator. He ran the show. McDaniels and Weiss get a lot of credit in NE. I’m not trying to knock Brady but when it comes to football IQ Manning takes the cake.

    • I like Darrisaw a lot as well. If he was there at 21 then yes I would draft him. I will say that lately he has moved up the board. He has learned and got better each year so playing in 2020 made him money for sure. Slater, Sewell, and Darrisaw are top 3 tackles to me. 
    • Apparently we’re interested in Bud Dupree. He’s one of the few guys that I hoped we wouldn’t target.   Edit: nvm, it was purely speculation.
    • If you look at the upcoming contracts 2021 and 2022 are the only really true years where we have to sign big named players.  The Colts are in ideal cap space position and not have to worry as 2023/2024 will not break the bank.
    • Top LG makes $14.781 million / year so expect Nelson to make around $16.5 million when we extend his contract next year.   Top RT makes $18 million and Smith will probably make closer to $16.5 million imo   Don't forget Leonard will probably make around $13 million shy of what top OLB makes which is closer to $18 million.   Glowinski and Kelly probably won't be Colts much longer so yes can see the Colts go after a top FA LT such as Trent Williams.  Either way NFL teams have to protect their franchise QBs and the Colts learned that lesson the hard way so expect the Colts to do right moving forward.
    • I also have been very high on Darrisaw as well and would love to see the Colts draft him.  Said it before and with Sewell taking the year off was hoping to see the two of them compete at the combine, I really wouldn't been shocked to see Darrisaw get taken before Sewell.  Also have similar gut feelings about where the Colts are drafting and a good Day 1 starting LT being available for the Colts later in Round 1 am just not buying it.   With Williams guess its just a difference in opinion and will respect yours but Williams to me is the best available LT in FA.  We have the cap space to sign Williams that was never an argument.   Like I mentioned in original thread that Kelly is probably only going to be here another 2-3 years.  If Kelly remains healthy possibly longer but with his contract structured the way it is the Colts could cut Kelly and save over $10 million in 2023 and if remember correct $12 million in 2024.  The biggest concern we have seen in the past is not having a quality backup at center and McCollum is an intriguing prospect I think the Colts might be interested in.  Pinter probably could play center and manage.  If Glowinski was out for a long timer could see Smith move back over and Pinter at RT.  Lack of depth at LG for Nelson might still be questionable but at least with the suggested model  above the Colts replenish lost players on the OL and add players would should be able to take over when required.   Luckily in 2022 the only big players the Colts will have to really focus on resigning are Hines, Nelson, Leonard, and Smith and we have plenty of capital to resign each of them next year.  Glowinski to me is the wild card of the group.  By 2023 currently have only 9 players to resign of which Willis, Okereke, Rock, and Campbell will cost us but still at this point none will break the bank.  In 2024 that will be more costly but still the Colts are in great shape financially.   Besides look at the Saints, Rams, and TB Bucs as great examples of teams betting the farm on win now attitudes.  To be really honest am tempering my expectations of Wentz given his history going from starter to bench/injury back to starter back to bench.  Luckily the Colts can cut bait on Wentz anytime in 2022 - 2024 recover $22-26 million in cap space and use that on a QB upgrade if things go south.   Biggest thing was trying to accomplish was secure major area of need both in the off-season and in the draft with these assumptions.  May not have the exact person identified but the positions of importance was more of a key factor.  Next year TE, WR, MLB/SLB, DE, DBs would be areas of need.
