Yes they will now have to pay more - IMO the only reason Smith went to the Fish was to use it as bargaining leverage for a bigger deal in SanFran ... I'm sure it was worked out with his agent who is also Mannings agent - no doubt he knew ahead of time that Manning was not going to pick SanFran.

.... and IMO Manning will NOT win another SB. :(

i think he has just as good a chance as any other team in the AFC to win a suberbowl, the AFC is weak, hes in an easy division, IMO the texans are by far the best team in the AFC, but with Manning the broncos have a great chance, just look at where the pats ended up, the only team they beat all year including playoffs that had a winning record were the ravens

now i dont think he will win one either, but i think he has a very good chance to

That SOB was someone right. I'm thinking it was a lucky guess until someone proves me wrong. I really thought he was going to the Titans, but I guess you never know until it's official.

Say what you want about his sources and that he's just some guy blathering on twitter, he announced the middle of last week that Manning was signing with the Broncos and that the workout with the Titans was "due diligence."

I don't know where he gets it, but he seems to get it right almost all of the time.

Surely as bad as Peyton is and with how bad you wanted him gone you wouldn't be scared for the Chosen One to play him this year had the schedules aligned that way?

i wanted peyton gone because of the situation. luck will make us good for 15 years. with peyton it would only be 4-5 years and if you say we could have found a replacement after peyton well how well is that working out for the fins? its been 13 years since dan marino retired and they still havent replaced him.

Incarcerated Bob is a volume shooter. He's definitely not right over 80% of the time but he does appear to have some legitimate connections that clue him in to what MAY happen and he reports all of it, often prematurely just of the sake of being first.

The issue isn't that he's not right all the time, it's that he's barely right occasionally. He's also said the Jets had a contract "in principle" with Asomugha (though both sides disputed that), said Ray Allen was going to be traded to the Clippers and said Mario Williams had a contract done with Buffalo the first day he arrived.

Wait, one of those was right. Yeah, you know why? Because it's not hard. He reads a report mentioning interest in a player, like Allen and Asomugha, jumps the gun and claims it's done or it's close and then proclaims he's great. When it doesn't happen, he just calls those who call him out 'haters' and blocks them. When he ends up right (which isn't hard if you make enough guesses and ignore your failures), he pretends to have some kind of insight or league source. He's a snake oil salesman who just picks up rumbling from real reported and jumps the gun to claim he's the best.

He

Does

THIS OFTEN!

It's not even the predication that annoy me. It's the idea that he pretends to have inside information. Must of his "information" is him simply calling a common piece of news a done deal, and that's exactly what it was this time. I'll listen to him when he can go back in time and correct his "HARBAUGH TO DOLPHINS, DONE DEAL; PRESS RELEASE TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!" foolery.

    • with the new break through in the surgery its 6 to 9 months to be able to play when it used to be a full year to be cleared to play . it will be 8 months by week 1 even if it takes the max 9 months that is the 4th game of the season and that is the max he could be cleared week one .   ballard has to know fisher is healing well and on target to return in 8 months to sign him
    • Leno, the clear safer option. This is risky, but it is what it is, maybe Leno was not possible or they think Fisher is higher upside, even with the injury.   There clearly is some kind of trust in Tevi and Davenport at least provides insurance for him as well. As long as they can survive for a couple games and then Fisher is able to come in, we should be fine. The medical part of it, who knows. The FO are the ones that have the medical info, we don't. We can only trust he'll be fine and close to back to his best.   I wonder if they'd resign him, in that case. Not sure how much room there'd be for that, but if it's possible it would kick the can down the road on the left tackle problem, which we need. We have to stop having to replace players at super important positions every off season. 
    • Gives you more options, if a guy plays well and you let him walk it helps with comp picks. Or you get to re evaluate the following season!   no need to bloat the roster with contracts longer than needed! 
    • I would be surprised if CB doesn't have a contingency clause in the contract that if he could not play at all this coming season that the Colts would be on the hook for his entire salary. I would imagine that there would be an incentive clause based on games played. would be shocked if that were not the case. As for the fact he may not start the season and miss the first few games, a drafted rookie may have been in the same boat.  Not to many rookie LT are going to come into this league and start playing at a high level, especially any that we could have picked up at 54. 
    • Very good post.   Really appreciate the thought you’d put into it.      If I may, I’d like to add this.   I would guess Ballard respects them.   Because Colts.com uses them periodically.   I don’t think we would if CB didn’t sign off in that.     I’d also add that obviously the Colts have their own internal grading system both for their own players and for opposing players as well.  I’m sure our numbers differ from pff to a degree.  But I’d say they’re close enough that the Colts respect what pff does.  And so I accept pff on that level.
