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.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
