Silly question (for fun)

Recommended Posts

I know this isn’t going to happen but I was curious what you guys would think about this. What if by miracle you knew that we were for sure going to keep trotting JB out there next year to start,but Peyton comes out in a press conference and says he’s been working his butt off and wants to play one more year as a colt.  Who would you rather start for the colts next year in this totally fictional and unlikely scenario? Also keep in mind to make this fun, in this thought experiment we aren’t sucking for draft picks we are trying to at least be competitive.  Would you rather have one more year of ancient Peyton or another most likely mediocre year of JB?  

 

  To tell you the truth I would choose Peyton and it’s not even close. Who knows maybe somehow the dude still has some magic up his sleeve. Brady isn’t much older and Peyton wasn’t ever the most physically gifted guy. Peyton often beat people with his superior intellect and knowledge of The game. I think my decision is based mostly in my respect and admiration for #18 than any hostility for JB even though I think JB isn’t that great. I honestly think if Peyton was in shape he could still be pretty darn good. 

 

  Please if you are going to complain about how dumb this thread is don’t waste your time. It’s been a rough season with not much good to talk about so I figured I would sort of change the subject and make a fun discussion.  I know this thread is pointless and silly I’m just curious how everyone else feels about this.

Of course, maybe Peyton could make an old man training video and threaten Luck with it.  You come back or I'm gonna.

Guys don’t take this too seriously and don’t think too hard on this. Let’s say he’s hired the top of the line conditioning coach and he’s in great football shape FOR HIS AGE.  Don’t worry about could he get in shape or anything like that.

I don't think the conditioning would matter much.  His arm was shot.  It's like a pitcher - when it goes, it goes.

Peyton for certain.   Brissett makes this choice pretty easy though.  I'm sure Reich would love to have a coach on the field.

Brissett.  I want to move into the future. If he's not our guy then we find someone else.

Hell give me Peyton all the way man!! I'm sure with our O line he could still dink and dunk it all the way down the field. plus even at his age I believe he could still hit a RB wide open on a 3 or 4 yard pass unlike JB.

I'd go with Brissett, let Peyton back him up, if Brissett hasn't improved by game 3, put Peyton in

Only way Peyton would be JBs backup is if for some reason he can only throw left handed. And even then I still might start Peyton.

Peyton has been awfully busy building that new stadium in Peytonville. I'm going with JB.

Lol!  Silly answer.  If that happens then QB Kelly would be demoted to the PS and the Forum would go nuts!

I guess the community moderator didn't read your post. No sense of humor? I believe Manning could best JB if he was in a wheel chair. Do you know why Brissett turned down a part on star trek? He couldn't pass in the future either.

    • A lot of the reason why Peyton only has 1 ring is because he couldn't beat the Pats early in his career (2003/2004). Also sometimes teams have bad luck, in 2009 we were clearly the best team but couldn't recover an onsides kick. Many great players have won 0 SB's. Dan Marino never won one. If someone would've told you Marino would've played 16 seasons and never won a SB, nobody would believe that. Jim Kelly and the Bills lost 4 straight SB's. Sometimes circumstance like a missed FG or an onsides kick, dropped pass in a SB can screw everything up. 
    • To make it short. My point and question is this. Who is Peyton Manning, and why does he have 1 ring in Indy. From the onset, if someone told you that by drafting PM you would be guaranteed to win 1 ring, is that good or bad. BTW Eli has 2 with same team. We we all know that Eli is good but he ain't the fk Sheriff (ask Jon Gruden).   If someone told you that PM won 1 ring in 10+ years with Indy, "most" would question why only 1 with Indy. And may even say that that's a fail.  
    • Since the 2000 season we are tied for the 3rd most wins in the NFL with the Packers (2000-2019/20 seasons). Only the Pats and Steelers have more wins in that time frame. Regarding SB championships you make it sound like a team winning 2 SB's is miles better than winning 1. 2-1 is a slight margin. Only the Patriots who have won 6 have a huge margin over all teams. Ravens and Giants have won 2 SB's since 2000 but we have more wins. Steelers have 2 as well and more wins so they deserve being ranked the 2nd best franchise since the 2000's. Colts along with the Packers have only won 1 and have the same amount of wins. Like I said 2-1 is a slight margin in championships won. 6-1 is a big margin like the Pats have but the Pats have the upper hand on every team since the 2000's. It really doesn't bother me. Had we recovered a simple onsides kick vs the Saints, we would've had 2 but we didn't, it would've never came down to Peyton's INT trying to rally us again putting everything on him again, crap happens.     Since 2000 (20 seasons) the best franchises have been IMO: 1. Patriots (*belongs here though because of the cheating they have done)   2. Steelers   3. Packers - same amount of wins as the Colts and a SB win like the Colts.   Tied for 3rd. Colts - I put us over the Ravens and Giants who did win 2 SB's simply because we have many more wins and have made the playoffs a lot more than the Giants did. Winning the 1 SB combined with that puts us tied for 3rd. The Seahawks and Broncos have won 1 SB too but we have more wins than those teams since 2000 as well. Without Regular Season wins you don't even make the playoffs, the Regular Season is very important. If someone wants to say we underachieved regarding winning SB's, I can buy that but It is what it is.  JMO
    • You said nothing wrong at all. There's always going to be people who don't agree with you then try to attack instead of communicate. 
    • No worries here. That was actually how I interpreted what you said...but I can understand how others might have interpreted it differently.
