not enough .   Hold out PM. He's worth more than that

 20 million not enough? How much do you think he's worth? 

I hope he doesn't take it; ESPN has their own problems. I'm not able to watch  Manning because I don't have the channel.

It should just be 2 people in the booth IMO, I can live with Joe T - he isn't great but a good play by play guy. He was great doing boxing. Booger is the one that is just bad as a side kick, Peyton would bring a lot to the table much like Romo does for Nantz.

I can't stand ESPN .  I hope he makes them pay dearly.  He should get twice what Romo gets 

 

Don't get ESPN . I assume you are on the farmer 5?

ESPN has went way downhill since Disney took over their company. They are too political for my taste and have lost several good employees over the last 5 years.

Make hay while the sun shines, Peyton. While I feel it is ridiculous for broadcasters to be paid like a QB during their playing days, you strike while the iron is hot. It always comes with a time commitment that takes you away from family, so we will see what Peyton decides. If he is already doing Peyton's Place, he is already putting the time in because that is in his DNA, can't separate himself from the game whatsoever.

Not a fan of this idea. I would rather see him as a GM. Just because you can throw a football does not make you a great communicator. 

Throwing a football doesn't make you a great GM either.

 You don't know that.

And you don't know that he can't be a good broadcaster.    He has shown he can be great commentating.

You mean like on SNL or Pappa Johns ads?

It's not like Peyton needs the money. He already has enough to last him and all of his family if invested correctly. I think he is smart enough he has it covered.

I couldn't care less about ESPN or what they do as far as announcers. What once was a great sports channel has turned into a pile of :censored:.

I miss the days of just reporting the facts of whatever I am interested in. The media in general totally sucks.

Never watched and never will. 

Really?  Kind of hard to believe because I think Peyton's Place was the only thing on ESPN that was worth watching. 

Sorry, your loss.

    • I agree, but unfortunately for Taylor, the majority of carries is usually 12-15 instead of closer to 20.     Interesting question for you.   What is your thoughts on Peterson, I almost considered it a slap in the face to Barry Sanders with the Lions bringing in AP to potentially surpass Barry's rushing yds total, while wearing a Lions uniform.   Hopefully he doesnt, bit I found it weird when he was initially signed. 
    • KG really wasn’t near 100% until the Jax game either. He looks close to 100% now.    Week 1 Vs the Bears the Lions defense lost 3 CB’s. Two of them starters. They were dominating CHI before that and CHI was able to rally back as a result. DET still almost won the game but Swift dropped the game winner in the end zone. The Lions defense was really banged up vs GB, ARZ and NO. They are finally getting healthy. The Lions are still down two CB’s. Trufant and Coleman won’t play this week and haven’t played since week one.    I think the Swift vs Taylor matchup will be a fun one to watch.  I hope they both get the majority of the carries.   
    • I view him as mediocre.  Might not be fair to him but that's my take.  You can win with mediocre if you have a talented roster but there's a cap on your ceiling.   Good chance that Ballard knows this and will make a change if things don't go the way he wants in the playoffs.
    • If you look at how the trend is heading nowadays it seems like GM has become a complementary role to the Head Coach.  Where they basically work hand in hand with the coach or maybe even for them in scouting the class and shaping their board.  But I think the old model, the classic GM at the top ensuring you have that year to year consistency (and maybe even setting the course on what type of team he wants) has its advantages.   Ballard's a good GM.  Having that in place is really important for your long term health of the franchise.  So I think from that perspective the franchise is immediately better off than half to two-thirds of the rest of the league.   I think what he's missing is the right coach.  He needs someone more current, more creative.  Not necessarily the trendy offensive mind but a head coach who is young and gives you a tactical advantage on one side of the ball and has a chance to grow into the total package.  There's some good options out there, lot of young coordinators filtering in to the league now, but Ballard can also look at college.   Bottom line is I think we're in good hands at the top.  The roster is strong.  Lot of positives just find the right guy to tie it all together.
    • Not often but it can happen.  Bears D are the reason they won in 85
