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.

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

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.

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.

    • True in Lamar's first year in the league, but not last year.... but even if it was true for last year, I'm just going to leave these stats here:....   L. Jackson 2019 passing stats: 401 attempts  -  3,127 yards (avg 7.8)  -  36 TD  -  6 INTs  -  Passer rating: 113.3   P. Rivers 2019 passing stats: 591 attempts  -  4,615 yards (avg 7.8)  -  23 TD  -  20 INTs  -  Passer rating: 88.5   I know which QB i'd prefer.... especially as this ignores Lamar's value as a runner and elusiveness. Also yes i see your trapdoor emoji, but i get the feeling that other people feel this way..... so i wanted to just crush that narrative.   Also, people please dont get me wrong, i think Phillip will do well with us and is definitely an upgrade for us. I was merely making the point that while he should be great (especially behind our O-line), let's not get too carried away thinking we have one of the leagues best QB's, because we don't. He will do a good enough job to not hold the team back, which is more than we could hope for last year at the position.
    • @Coffeedrinker are you seriously trying to tell me you wouldn’t have D. Watson, L. Jackson or M. Ryan over Phillip Rivers at this point in Rivers’ career?   You’re crazy man!
    • Remember Marvin after he was dinged? This is starting to remind me of literally Watching Marvin’s physical ability decline.  Not quite there yet, but I look at TY’s age and size.... well, heres to hoping he continues to avoid big hits.     The way Ballard has been adding wideouts the last couple years has me wondering if Ballard isn't concerned about 16 game health too.
    • I think if I had stayed in IN when I was beginning to watch baseball it would have been between Reds, Cubs, and Pirates since triple A. But by the time I was 10 I had moved.      When I am in STL next year I will probably try to attend as many of the Cubs/Cards series as possible since there are 10 games and I'm 15 minutes from Busch at that point
    • Watson will be a UFA in 2022.  Over the Cap projects the Texans to have 97.7m Cap Room while the Colts are projected with 164m.  Given the Texans horrible offensive line compared to the Colts why would Watson wish to stay and continue to take the punishment and risk further injury to a gifted QB?  This year might be a blessing either way.  Limited NFL play allows Watson to remain upright and nurse any lingering wounds but shortens his remaining playing contract.   Agree it is rare for QBs to transfer within conferences.  We have seen players seeking revenge against their former teams.  Got to think Watson has to still be bitter about the Hopkins trade.  Given the medical issue with his mother he may wish to remain close to Georgia.  I personally think the Colts organization is much better than the current Texans staff.   Again we will have more capital and a much improved offensive line to dangle in front of Watson and the recent history lesson of knowing we have to do better protecting our QBs post-Luck.  Take the lesson learned and acquire some talented WRs next year so we can bait him make it enticing for Watson to want to come here.  Make Watson our "Missing Link".
