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 prefer a Texas style dry rub on my Brisket personally....

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.

    • Let's get off the cliff please. We can potentially have Brissett Hilton and Funchess back as early as this week and if the Ravens beat the Texans then we can get back on top of the division when we play the Texans next week, but first let's take it easy, handle the jaguars, and get back to what made this team formidable. And for the love of God, get a grip with all the gloom and Doom 
    • Yeah since we moved to Indianapolis in 1984 we only have, -a SB win in 2006   -2 SB appearances = 2006 and 2009   -5 AFC Title Game appearances = 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014   -12 Divisional Round appearances = 1987, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2018   -We were 5-2 with JB and in 1st place in the AFC South in 2019 but yet people still want to complain about our team and franchise.  We aren't the Pats, who gives a crap - they are known cheaters too. We have some spoiled fans in here, that is my opinion. 
    • Lol.  True but it could also be so much better. That’s what makes it tough.  As Colts fans...we seldom have a moment to breathe easy.  We are constantly under the stress of tight games.  We live perpetually on the fine line between victory and defeat week after frigin week.  Not good for the heart if you don’t keep it all in its proper context and perspective in the grand scheme of life.
    • It's tough being a Colt's fan, but it could be worse.  GO BROWNS.   
    • I think T.Y. returns to play the Texans.  He always seems to find a way to play and torture Houston.  Problem is by then it’s very possible that the damage may have already been done.  We have botched what was supposed to have been the lightest part of our schedule while the rest of our division has made haste.  We will be locked in a dog fight for our survival the rest of the way.
