You got to love Peyton he's just trying to help any way he can. I can't think of a better person for Jacoby to be hanging out with

So in other words, b\Brisket has now had a chance to marinate in the wisdom of 2 of the greatest QBs of all time.

 

Sounds good to me.

They said he was there for a 'weight session'. That's code for kicking the tires.

Always good to have Peyton in town.  He seems to be spending more time around the Colts this year than in the past.  I am not saying that means anything just glad he still embraces the team.

"has had."  He understudied Brady in New England for a little over a year, and now has had a chance to pick Peyton's brain too.

Peyton's done.  He was in there for a weight session so he could spread his hard-earned wisdom around with the current-gen team.  Working out with the players puts him in their world and makes him available to chat with, and if the current players are smart, they'll have picked his brain for all he was worth.

 

If I was the Colts FO and had a guy with Peyton's NFL experience and reputation who was willing to come in and share some nuggets with the boys then I couldn't say yes fast enough.  Heck I think every franchise does this with their alums

I am sure he walks into the Colts complex all decked out in an Elvis leather jumpsuit & dark shades, and lets everyone know he's Peyton 'freakin' Manning, Superstar

I still have hopes that Irsay would offer and Manning would accept some sort of position with the Colts.    With his work ethic, I have no doubt he would succeed in anything he did.

I think Manning has already established he is in "their world" I don't think lifting a few weights would do change any player's opinion of him.

I love that Peyton is around the complex. Really hope a day comes when he's there as an official part of the front office/coaching staff. He's such a great football mind that this team would improve with him around.

I think you're mistaken.  Guys like Manning are on a bit of a pedestal.  I really do think that having him in that room doing what everyone else is doing makes him way more approachable.

You keep thinking that.  I can guarantee the only people that put Manning on a pedestal are the fans.

Indy was never going to be the same when the comeback kid left. Peyton knew it was time. 

 

It was time for the sheriff to come back and take his rightful place as the sole protector.

I think a lot of that had to do with Luck's wishes for privacy. They should have gotten out in front of a few things, but I can understand respecting your franchise player's wishes as well

 

If Luck had a bit more 'Hollywood' in him it would likely have been different :D

If anyone is set up in this league to succeed, it’s JB. He has Reich, Sirianni, Mack, Ebron, Doyle, the best OL in the league, and now he’s been the understudy to Brady, Luck, and Manning. Can’t get much more help than that.

If anyone finds out why he is there please post it. Leaving the Colts had to be a bitter pill for him to swallow.

At the end of Manning's career he was getting autograph requests from opponents and teammates.  

 

Bullcrap he wasn't put on a pedestal.

I see why people would put Peyton on a pedestal. Football wise he deserves it. On most people's lists including most of the media the guy is a Top 3 QB of all-time. Some think he is the GOAT. QB's like Brady, Montana, and Peyton only come around about once every 20 years in reality. We were lucky to have Peyton, while he was here we won a SB and went to 2 SB's. He also won 4 League MVP's here in Indy and won 12 or more games 7 years in a row from 2003-2009. With Peyton, 12 wins was automatic.

 

Regarding Peyton and Irsay having a problem with each other or Peyton not wanting to have anything to do with Indy has been proven completely false. He has been in Indy a lot lately so to the people that say he was sour toward Irsay, you are wrong. If Peyton had any ill will toward this organization he would've never had anything to do with the Colts at all while Irsay ownd the ream. That is common sense. Peyton just had dinner with JB, lmao and was in training camp, was here for the statue unveiling, etc.. I can go on and on.

    • I think Brady has played within and exceptional system the majority of his career (and sure, they may have been caught cheating, but I imagine every coach in the NFL is trying to do something every week to get a leg up on the opponent).   My biggest argument on why I take Peyton over Brady is look what happened the year Peyton missed -- we went from being projected to win the AFC South, potential SB contenders, 10+ wins, etc... and we became the laughing stock of the league going 2-14.  It exposed how bad our team really was without Peyton at the helm.     When Brady missed significant time, Matt Cassell led them to 11 wins.  Matt Cassel backed up Matt Barkley and ButtFumble Sanchez in college and never had a snap in a real game, yet could win double digits in NE.  Cassel got paid like a #1 QB after that, and has had maybe 1 decent year and otherwise is a major disappointment and essentially a journeyman back-up QB -- yet, he could win very regularly in NE under Belichek.   To me, that just says Peyton was a more valuable player to his team than Brady.  It's evidenced by Peyton's regular season MVP awards.  Unfortunately, I don't think Peyton ever had as good a team around him (including defense) as Brady has had since he's been a starter in the NFL.  Also unfortunate, the problem on relying on one guy in the playoffs is that the playoffs usually require all 3 phases of a team to be playing pretty flawless once you're through the wildcard rounds.  Brady always had a D he could count on, always had a run game, and has had a lot of very reliable WRs throughout his career.  He rarely was asked to do as much for his team to get W's as Peyton was asked to do in Indy (or his first year in Denver).       I think Belichek is the best coach in NFL history and at this point, I think it's almost hands down (I think the argument that he is the best is a far easier one to make than any individual QB, or really any individual player, considered the best all time).  If Matt Cassel could win 11 games with Belichek, I'm pretty sure there are at least 15 QBs in the league who could post winning records with that system (Cassel is far inferior to guys like Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, Big Ben, Stafford, and a whole slew of other QBs who have played QB in this league).     Brady is a clutch player and he plays in a very solid system on a very solid team year in and year out.  That said, in their primes, I think a guy like Peyton could go to a 2-14 team and turn it around quicker than Brady could.  It's impossible to say, but if Peyton played 20 years with Belichek, I'd have to think he'd have as much or more SBs than Brady -- whereas, I don't think Brady could elevate a team like Indy the same way Peyton did over the course of his career.
    • Just finished watching the Pack/Lions to ight and the officials cost the Lions the game. Two calls against the Lions DE #90 for hands to the face showed clearly his hands were on the opponents pads. So obvious were both calls one would think the games was rigged. I'm sure you will see this on the sports shows tomorrow. These two calls could cost the Lions a run for the SB. "Not reviewable" now is like "diplomatic immunity". The NFL is a joke.
    • Wait a minute...I'm a little slow tonight...So, your happy dream is to have famous fetching females come over to your flat & play a board game? Maybe you play a more adventuresome game in Scotland then we do in North America BHC. That must be it. Wink; Wink.   Something got lost in translation here. Only kidding!
