It'll make my skin crawl, but I'll wear an 18 Broncos jersey. And if Tebow gets traded to Jacksonville it'll be like Manning's still helping us win the AFC South. :P

Yes. Peyton helped us a tad. We can handle Tebow.

Mario Williams stayed out of the South thanks to TN chasing Peyton.

I didn't care about them before and can't say I really care about them now....

I might follow them a bit to see how Peyton does, but really don't care if they win or lose.....unless they're playing the Colts or Pats.

Colts period! I find it hard to see anyone that was around for the '84 power play that Elway pulled against the Colts to even consider Denver being their second fave???????????? But hey thats me....I will just be glad when the Colts Forum goes back to being about Colts.................

They won't be a "favorite" team, but I will watch every game and root for Peyton.

Last year, I got sucked into the "Tebow thing" and watched them because of that but I didn't have any "love" for the broncos.

You could remove every player from the Colts and start fresh and I'd still bleed Blue.

It's not about the individual players for me. They (temporarily) just become part of the overall "package".

Players come and go. Some sooner than others.

I don't get how people would say no to this. These teams don't even play each other this year. You gotta root for the guy that carried the team for so long. Heck I still rooted for Edge down in Arizona and Seattle. It's nice to see your guys do well in another city. If the Colts are 4-12 and the Broncos are playing in the AFC Championship game, how could they not be your backup team. Come on guys.

Clearly for the purposes of this poll, it's the same thing. This poll wasn't created randomly by some guy who happens to like the Broncos - if you want Peyton to continue to succeed, than by definition you are rooting for the Broncos.

no more than anyone playing fantasy football. I'll be interested in what Manning does for sure. Maybe the Broncos can move up to my 'teams that i'm ok with winning'.

The whole "second team" thing has always sounded odd to me.

Along with second wife, second girlfriend, second mistress.........oops, one of those is actually too much.......second vacation home, second lunch, second childhood.........

Colts will always be #1.

2nd for the past 10 yrs has been whoever plays the Patriots.

I was a Baltimore Colts fan, so I have always hated Elway and Denver. Now it comes down to this, "do I hate Elway more than I like Peyton and want him to succeed?". I guess I like Peyton more, so unless it has any effect on the Colts, I will root for Denver to win.

If the Broncos were playing someone that if the other team won it would hurt the Patriots, I might have to root against Peyton in that case also.

:D I'm up for second lunch anyway.

Speaking of second childhoods, when I was a kid I had one of those mini helmet sets with one for each team. When I wasn't lining them up like players on the field (with my multiple Colts helmets in the skill positions of course) I was lining them up in a single elimination tournament. Do I like this team more than this team? On and on, until I had them ranked first through last. Obviously the Colts were never remotely challenged for number one, but the others have fluctuated often over the years with player, uniform, circumstance and mood changes. I'm not sure where the helmets are, but I do the same thing now with pad and paper just by way of doodling. I find it fun, and never quite grasped the idea of viewing all other teams as the enemy. I'm not sure how someone enjoys a game that the Colts aren't playing in if they think like that. I have NO problems what-so-ever with embracing the Broncos. I'm looking forward to their upcoming season with considerable enthusiasm. That doesn't diminish my affection or loyalty to the Colts one iota - it just means that I need to save more room on the DVR.

Peyton means about as much to me now as Eli did before Peyton was cut. Familiar name, not quite the same player. I will just marvel at the athlete. Always will miss the Manning era, but it's the past now and it's time to move on. Peyton is in the same league as Unitas now. Peyton left us with nothing but good feelings, and I'm content with that. Wish him the best of luck, but I hope he loses every time if it affects the Colts in anyway.

    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!   
    • I'd like to hear the board's thoughts on this topic from more of an outside perspective. From my experience Steelers fans fall into two camps (generally speaking); totally irrational and loyal to the death, highly critical of anything to do with Pittsburgh Football unless it results in a championship (and not always in a rational manner).     Now for my thinking, this issue should have been addressed much sooner, but if nothing else after the disaster that was the 2019 season. You have an aging QB who just blew his elbow out and were starting "junior varsity" replacements. You have been bleeding free agents all off season in 2020 and have lost or watched the decline of key players at LT, C, LB, RB, S, CB and just resigned a WR free agent. Plus, you also need a LG. These stooges are actually suggesting using a 2nd round pick on a QB from college when the decision to do nothing about the QB position has caused half the team to get sent packing because you have next to nothing to spend in free agency.   This is after these same people lauded the Dwayne Haskins singing as a "steal". Pittsburgh literally got him for nothing this year after WFT ate all the "bad" in his contract, a 15th overall pick coming into his 3rd year in the NFL who drastically needed a change of scenery.   I'm convinced that if it was up to Tomlin he would have already moved on. We all know he's a master at coach speak at the podium but he's a completely different guy otherwise. Even at that, he's started to unravel a bit because you can tell he's getting frustrated with some of his more recent public comments. He is no BSer. I get the warm fuzzy feeling we all have when a team is loyal to a player who has been valuable and produced at a high level, but I mean even New England and Indianapolis let Manning and Brady walk after all of their success.   Please tell me in what universe does any of this even make sense? I am confused.
    • Gonna be on vacation next week. Sorry
    • As I have probably nothing else to do at weekend, due to "sleepy" covid management over here, I'm in!    To be honest, I would've been in anyway.
