I Have A Bad Feeling About This...


Recommended Posts

I have always been told to go with my gut on important decisions in life. I haven't always done that, and when I don't, I usually find myself saying "should've gone with my gut". Obviously I have no say in Irsays decision, but my gut tells me that this isn't right thing to do. No matter what happens I'm blue and true, but like the title says, I have a bad feeling about this...

It's going to get worse before it gets better. There is no way Luck leads us to a 12 win season like Peyton almost guaranteed every season. With that said, Luck does have the potential to do very well and be very successful. However, don't expect him to put him Peyton Manning numbers right off the bat

Considering Peyton Manning didn't put in Peyton Manning numbers right off the bat I think most of us would be very surprised!

Peyton had (not including himself) 4 players selected in first round, and 3 players selected in the second on the offense. Names like Faulk, Harrison, Glenn, Dilger, Mandarich, etc...

Still, only 3 wins and 13 losses. But Peyton's football smarts and extreme work ethic reversed that next season 13 wins and 3 losses.

Luck has tools, if he puts in the work like Peyton, and has football smarts, he too will do just fine.

My gut feeling honestly says I feel bad about Manning having to leave under these circumstances and that really despite me wanting him to catch Brady for SBs I believe Manning would underthrow his WRs and throw everything and anything underneath and to the sidelines and teams will jump on it even more than in past years when his arm/shoulder was already weak. Peyton will never catch Brady for SBs. Peyton is a train wreck waiting to happen. We should be thankful it won't happen in Indy.

... and quite frankly some of you Manning fans would have been all over Irsay had he gotten Manning killed out there so remember that

....I dont see us making the playoffs in 2012...but we havent drafted yet and we havent signed any free agents..

I just hope Luck doenst get hurt...because he may be running for his life

We're back to Danny O as the backup

Honestly, we probably weren't going to make the playoffs anyways. Manning is getting up there in age and the talent on the roster is dwindling. The window closed a while ago. We are just starting the full blown rebuild a year early.

Without Manning there is no Saturday, there will be no Wayne, Garcon is a free agent, Addai is no longer reliable, Clark and Collie will injure themselves....Luck has no offensive left to allow him to succeed like the player everyone expects him to be. Why is that a better choice than peyton manning? Allow a new QB to sit behind manning for one year, and learn to be the manning caliber qb he could be. Hello...steve young behind joe montana? That worked out well. I am team RG3! Realistically, he will be way more versatile for our current offensive situation.

    • Predicted this last night in the Cully thread.   The perfect out come he is traded to SF is and out of conference and Stafford is traded to Colts and is out of conference.  
    • I think SF would be a frontrunner over the Jets for one of Watson's destinations.   Mahomes is a hindrance for the Broncos to go after him or Stafford, IMO. WFT is a dark horse and Dan Snyder is stupid enough to mortgage 3 first rounders and 3 second rounders for Watson, IMO while I feel his market value should settle down at 2 first rounders and 2 second rounders. Jimmy G definitely is slightly better in a swap than Drew Lock as well, IMO.
    • I highly doubt Watson is going to retire and walk away. Not with that type of money. I don't know his personal finances but if he has high dollar bills to pay he has to work.   
    • Meh this doesn't mean much to me.  10 teams is still a lot of teams.     If you have a QB or are picking towards the top of the draft you probably are not interested.     Article lists 19 teams but the article is incorrect that these teams would be seriously interested in giving up picks and money for Stafford.  Remember these teams arn't stupid, they know it's likely going to take a 1st.  They arn't getting Stafford for some 5th round pick.   Article lists:   Jets, Patriots, Dolphins, Steelers, Browns, Jaguars, Colts, Texans, Broncos, Raiders, Washington, Cowboys (as a potentially cheaper alternative to Dak Prescott), Bears, Vikings, Panthers, Saints, Falcons, 49ers, and Rams.   But several of those are incorrect.   Jets are in complete rebuild and hold the #2 overall pick.  They are not going to want to make a significant investment in a 32 year old QB.   Patriots: Yes   Dolphins: Probably not, they will probably give Tua another year.     Steelers: If Big Ben said I'm retiring now than yes.  But if Big Ben is coming back than no.   Browns: Umm no, they have Mayfield.  Stafford might be a little better but is the improvement worth a 1st rounder to them?  Also Mayfield is a lot younger.   Jags: They would be stupid to trade Trevor Lawrence for Matt Stafford.  Jags need to get Lawrence and build around him.     Colts: Yes   Texans: Maybe but probably not.   It doesn't seem 100% certain that Watson is on his way out.  Plus even if Watson is on his way out, Texans are also in a complete rebuild.  If you are rebuilding you don't invest high picks in older Vet QB's because by the time your rebuild is complete they are on the decline.   Broncos: Maybe   Raiders: No, again how much better is Stafford over Carr?   Washington: Yes   Cowboys: Seems to me that they should just pay Dak.   Bears: Yes   Vikings: I think they are still attached at the hip to Cousins.     Panthers: Yes   Saints: They have Hill as their QB.  Payton said he was going to be the next Saints QB.  Plus given the cap situation they couldn't.  They are over 100M in the red.   Falcons: Maybe if Matt Ryan is leaving.  But I have not heard that he is.   49ers: I think they are kind of attached at the hip to Jimmy G.   Rams: No, Stafford doesn't provide enough of an improvement over Goff.  
    • I've been looking and I can't find any actual quotes from Watson saying anything like that. The only actual quote about a head coach he made was:   "I mean, we just need a whole culture shift. We just need new energy. We need discipline, we need structure, we need a leader so we can follow that leader as players. That's what we need. We've got to have the love of not just the game of football, because that's what we do, but the love for people and the people in this organization."   I think his comments about the organization as a whole, with regards to the racist (some may say they were only "racially insensitive") comments prior owner Bob McNair made and BoB allegedly made to Hopkins, reflect a culture of racism that has festered throughout the organization.   There were musing that Watson preferred Bienemy, but those musings never mentioned it was due to race, although assumptions were made. What QB wouldn't want the OC for one of the most high powered offenses in the league to be his HC? Especially one that is talked about in such high esteem by his players.   I honestly think as soon as McNair asked for his input, then essentially told him to go kick rocks, he was done there.
