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.

    • I'm not sure that's a huge spike though.  I googled it and the current cap is 198 M.  So 200 M is just a small increase.   I would also be careful as to thinking that means that re-signing all the starters is easy.  If the cap goes up the player's pay demands will go up.     However it does mean that what looks like a big payday today starts to look like a team friendly contract in a few years. 
    • Have to let it all play out.  Most great, even franchise transforming players don’t get to finish their careers with the team that drafted them.   In the case of Leonard and Nelson...something would have to dramatically change about the current trajectory for them to not get generous second contracts that make them the highest paid at their positions.   Leonards contract is trickier and Luke Kuechly is instructive.  It’s less likely that Leonard makes it to the end of his second contract by nature of the position he plays and his tweener build for that position.  Very little chance that Leonard can play at his current level of efficacy beyond age 30, just like a RB.  Leonard’s performance delta is highly dependent on a razor thin physical margin that he won’t be able to maintain all the way through a 5 year second contract.  He’s a 6-8 year player like a quality RB is.  
    • For the record, I have no problem paying BIG $$$ to Top Tier talent..... provided it's at the right positions (QB, DE/Edge, WR, probably L-OT, in the Colts' case, 3-tech DT and to a lesser degree (normally a premium spot, but not in the Colts system), CB.   Just my take.  
    • With the 128th selection in the 2019 Gavin Mock Draft, the Buffalo Bills select: Darnay Holmes CB UCLA.   @WarGhost21 and the Baltimore Ravens are on the clock until 12:04 PM
    • Not really the same.  Leonard was an All Pro meaning one of the very best in the league.   Danny was pretty great for a few years and the Pacers did pay him very well.   He was never thought of as one of the 2-3 best in the league, at least I don't remember it that way.
