HOF19

So who is Peyton Manning rooting for Sunday ?

Recommended Posts

On February 5, 2012 Peyton was at Lucas Oil Stadium and was seen hanging (a little bit ) with the Mara's as baby brother won a Super Bowl MVP in the Colts home stadium .

Will he be seen on TV sitting with the Mara family ?

I’m sure he’s rooting for Eli but if he’s there I hope he’s sitting with irsay.

Peyton knows the Giants are done for the year. I think he'll be hoping that Eli has a good game but also that the Colts win. :)

Why is this even a question. Of course he is rooting for his brother....wouldn't you? I'm sure he wishes the Colts success but he isn't going to choose them over family...nor should he. I'm sure he will be in the Mara box with his family and Eli's. That said he will probably be doing plenty of autographs and meet and greats for us Colts fans....he is always very gracious!

 

One thing is for sure...he probably will have the basement reserved at St. Elmo's....that there can be no doubt lol.

I couldn't care less. Seriously. I'm a huge PM fan and I love when he shows up at LOS or does anything related to the Colts, I think it's awesome. But I really don't care who he roots for this Sunday.

Probably the Giants.  

 

He has to be hoping that his brother can at least do well enough to either stay in NY or latch on with another team if he was released or traded.

Considering he is a part owner of the Colts...it should be obvious.

 

Wait...that never happened?

 

Wasn't that "guaranteed" to be happening at some point shortly after the 2017 draft?

Who is he rooting for?

 

Is there a statue of Peyton in Eli's front yard? No, didn't think so.

Never begin a sentence with 'so'

I think so. But then it was just a matter of "when not if."

 

I actually thought it could make sense to see something like that happen...for Peyton to be involved in the organization at a high level. But unless they were super sly about it...doesn't look to be the case.

Everybody's itching for him to do the next thing, and it seems like he's in no hurry. He's doing just what he said he would do in retirement: a little of this, a little of that, going to games, etc. He's definitely not hurting for money, so there's no rush to take a job.

 

I think if he starts to get the itch, he'll have no shortage of offers. I thought he was getting geared up to rescue MNF from the clown show, but ESPN is apparently doubling down on the Ringling Bros for 2019. And he's doing his Detail breakdowns with no interference, picking the games he wants to analyze, and doesn't have to leave home to do it.

 

And if he wants a front office gig, any number of teams would create a position specifically for him. I don't see Irsay giving him authority over Ballard, though.

Yeah...not at this point. Maybe when Ballard first got here...but not now. 

 

Now if Peyton started working under Ballard (ala Elway in DEN) for a few years...that could be different. But I don't think he would have to take that path. Another team (like TEN) would likely offer him a Team President job straight away...or something to that effect.

 

The team ownership piece is a different conversation and much more complicated. We just don't know if Irsay (or any team) would be willing to carve out a piece to Manning. If a team is for sale...that's probably his best chance.

 

As for the MNF crew...at least get rid of the stupid platform. Makes no sense to have a member of the crew isolated on a moving platform during games.

Well to be fair, his choices were his brothers team or the Pats. No brainer there.

Am I the only one who thinks deep down he doesn't like the way things ended and despite what he might say, is still bitter with the franchise?

He is the best player in franchise history so he will always be relevant. Glad to see Luck playing the way he is now though. This era could use another SB Title.

Teaming up with Kobe for those Analysis videos is super smart! Get a check for doing some light video editing and commentary....brilliant and people eat it up. He will have no limit in the amount of side work and commercials in the future. If he wants to go the Joe Montana route instead of the Dan Marino or Trent Dilfer route...more power to him! He is much closer of a business man to Roger Staubach then say Troy Aikman. Plus he alienates no one doing the work that he does. The last Nationwide commercial with Brad Paisley "What cord is that?....not to high for me!" lol....pure comedy gold!

I just don't get why a team would give Manning the top dog position right away. He has zero experience. Irsay theoretically could have brought Manning in when he fired Grigson, but he went with a guy who has been preparing for this job for several years. He made a football decision.

 

In Elway's case, the Broncos were listless for a few years and needed help. They had previously fired Shanahan, had just fired McDaniels, and it seemed like Bowlen didn't want to continue to be as involved in the day to day. Elway was brought in as a figurehead as he learned the ropes, then a couple years later he took over the day to day and fired Brian Xanders. Still, while he was basically at the top of the food chain, he wasn't given autonomy over football operations from day one.

 

At this point, it appears Ballard has brought the entire operation into harmony, and he's in charge of it all. I can't see how Manning would fit in a higher up position. And it's unlikely that he'd come on as Ballard's deputy, if Dodds or Hogan leaves, although that would probably be the best way for him to start out, IMO.

 

Maybe Irsay makes room for him in the ownership group, but if Manning wants to really get involved in the football operation, it doesn't seem like Indy is the right fit for him at this point.

I agree on his relevancy but I never bought in to the statue from day one.

    • OK....    here we go....    my list is not to be taken as complete,  but it's as much as I could find after doing a number of searches...   I'm sure I may have missed a player here or there...   I used the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a reference.    I tried not to go back too far.   So, I won't have guys like Butkus, or Nitzchke or Nobis...     they didn't have good medical, training, nutrition, etc.   So,  I went mostly with guys who have played since 2000...    but there are some who were drafted in the mid-90's and whose career extended into the 2000's....    This list is not ALL linebackers, just most of the top ones.    I did not include outside linebackers.    But I can make another list if you like..   Middle or Inside Backers.   1.  Patrick Willis       https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WillPa98.htm 2.  Navarro Bowman https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BowmNa99.htm 3.  Jarrod Mayo https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/MayoJe99.htm 4.  Brian Urlacher https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/U/UrlaBr00.htm 5.  Sean Lee https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/L/LeexSe99.htm 6.  Jon Beason https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BeasJo99.htm 7.  Brian Cushing https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/C/CushBr99.htm 8.  Jonathon Vilma https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/V/VilmJo99.htm 9.  DQWell Jackson https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/J/JackDQ20.htm 10.   Bart Scott https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/S/ScotBa20.htm 11.   David Harris https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/H/HarrDa99.htm 12.   Keith Bullock https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BullKe00.htm    
    • I don’t care if you find my “sad” reactions are weak.    I find your views of the Colts....   unique.    Makes me wonder how many games you were actually able to view last year?   As for your claims of using facts and data....  don’t forget opinion.   You live yours (which’s fine),  but sometimes you think your opinion is fact.   Those have drawn some of my sad faces...  and even some laughing faces too.    Camp starts in a week...   plenty for you to opine on....     
    • Amen brother.   I'm lighting candles nightly too.
    • I am just happy there seems to be an increase in our teams health. It is something to be happy about.
    • @NewColtsFan   is your "sad" "reaction" a disagreement to most of my posts?    if so, feel free to challenge with a reply. you're constant "sad" faces are pretty weak. happy to debate with fact and data.
