That was a great moment, although it still bothers me to see “former Broncos quarterback,” :Cry: I know it was at a Nuggets game but still just doesn’t sit well with me.

Found this clip, most have probably seen it but I thought it was pretty cool and typical Peyton.  I mean it's one thing to sign the ball but then to pass it to the mascot gave him something he will be telling his friends for a long time.

I'm going to a Nuggets game this weekend.  I wonder if he has season tickets.  Manning... we were blessed to have our own "cheat mode" back in the day!

I miss Peyton! My wife and are expecting another baby in June and I was finally able to convince her to name this baby Peyton boy or girl.

I can't lie as well, that one will always bother me.

I had zero doubt in my mind Peyton's stat line when he retired would've been.....

 

1998-(until he couldn't do it anymore)

We made the right move getting rid of Peyton. We were in total rebuild mode, had a stud like Luck coming in, and Peyton would've been stuck playing behind a bad O.Line. We did Peyton a favor letting him go, he found Denver and got that 2nd SB ring as a starter that so many do not have. Only 12 QB's in 54 SB's have won 2 or more. Peyton got it and retired a winner too which never happens.

I didn’t think of that angle.

The indianapolis school teachers must be having a heck of a time with 7 or 8 Peytons in EACH class.

And those are just the GIRLS !

 

35% of student’s names ought to be Peyton by now.  No?

 

just kidding.  If i was having a son, it would be hard to ignore Naming Peyton.

 

Personally, I would go with Antonio Banderas {insert last name here}.  Rolls right off the tongue.

Oh I 100% agree it was the perfect time to make a move (wish we had that type option when Luck moved on), I'm talking strictly sentimentally having Peyton for his entire career.

I am of the belief that Manning asked to be released.  He knew he only had 3 or 4 more years left and did not want to be part of the rebuild he knew Grigs needed to do.

If he can still throw it like that, he'd probably add 3-4 wins to any team's record that he starts for now. :thmup:

I totally believe Irsay had a mutual agreement with this and I'm still more than satisfied with how everything worked out and glad it worked out the way it did for Manning.

Totally agree.  It hurt when it happened, but I really think because Irsay let him go, Peyton not wheelchair bound.

You and I think alike, Gramz.  The first thing I noticed were the two people sitting next to him and thought " woah!  No way are those are his kids.  Are they already that old??! ", haha.

 

Still waiting for Peyton to find his way to a permanent career in the broadcasting booth.  Great ambassador and spokesperson the league.

probably wont be a popular comment but we could have kept peyton,  and traded luck(for a lot), accelerating the rebuild 

 

not sure that would have been enough to get another ring with peyton but we would probably have a better team now

If the Colts Line couldn’t protect Luck from injury, imagine them protecting Peyton???  We can’t change history.  What has happened, has happened...

the kidney and calf injures had nothing to do with the line, you could blame them for the shoulder though he also hurt it snow boarding 

 

its obviously a done deal just throwing out a hypothetical

 I was in favor of this back then.  Not sure how it would have turned out, but the team would be different.  There were teams offering their whole draft+ for the Luck pick.  Cleveland and another.  We could have negotiated a Hershal Walker type trade.

    • Weak? Have you compared it to the 5 previous years.   For the fun of it, let's gauge "good" by # of QBs taken in the first round. Depth is pretty irrelevant (beyond the 1st) as teams aren't looking for their franchise guy in the second and beyond (sure they'll take a shot at a developmental guy, but they aren't all in). And then, let's look at how they did last year ranking wise. I'll use PFF's ranking to keep it simple, listed in parens (JB was ranked 29th BTW)   2019- 3 first rounders, none performing in the top half of the league Murray 1 (PFF25) Jones 6 (PFF24) Haskins 15 NR   2018 - 5 first rounders, on performing in the top half of league Mayfield 1 (PFF18) Darnold 3 (PFF28) Allen 7 (PFF26) Rosen 10 NR Jackson 32 (PFF5)   2017 - 3 first rounders, 2 performing in top half and top 10 of league Trubisky 2 (PFF27) Mahomes 10 (PFF2) Watson 12 (PFF9)   2016 - 3 first rounders, 1 barely performing in the top half of league Goff 1 (PFF19) Wentz 2 (PFF16) Lynch 26   2015 - 2 first rounders, none performing in top half of league Winston 1 (PFF21) Mariotta 2   2020 will have at minimum 3 QBs (Burrow/Tua/Herber) taken in the 1st (probably 3 top 10), likely a 4th (Love) 1st rounder though, and possibly 5 or 6 (Eason and Fromm). And that's in a year with incredible talent in FA. So not sure I'd call it weak. It'll have as many or more QBs taken early as 4 out of 5 years, likely more.
    • I think this thread is a huge smoke screen, not a huge smoke signal  
    • Mr. Irsay's heart is in the right place, always has been, but it was his heart that keep the dumpster fire of Grigson and Pagano around way too long.
    • Not sure if you follow football recruiting, but I follow it very closely. Utah State gets CFL level of talent (not even XFL lol), while teams like LSU, Bama, etc. get NFL talent for comparison.    Here's USt, LSU, and Bama's recruits signees for the current period (note the individual players national ranks). And below that are the schools ranking... Bama and LSU are ranked 2nd and 4th in the country in talent. Utah State is 117th. And sorry, Tua/Burrow don't automatically crush it when they have a horrible OL and bad skill position players (their WRs were in the 4.6 and 4.7s lol). Put either of those QBs on a team with a bad OL and they would look very diferent.    And that's not even factoring in that 9 out of 11 starters were brand new. And the only other returning starter didn't start the whole year in 2018 (injury sub).   https://247sports.com/college/utah-state/Season/2020-Football/Commits/ https://247sports.com/college/alabama/Season/2020-Football/Commits/ https://247sports.com/college/lsu/Season/2020-Football/Commits/
