I know it's MANNING and all...but for an unproven player (post major surgery) I'm surprised it's THAT MUCH!

You can bet that they have plenty of clauses in the contract that will allow them to back out if Manning has issues with his neck.

Ouch, did that burn the moustache, Phil :)

Hey, cut it out, no need to attack the mods which is a clear violation of the rules of the forum. You can continue to argue the premise of your disagreement, and I am sure you know better than that.

This has already been discussed and I'm sure the mods will move it if they decide it needs to be moved.

Well if they don't, I'm gonna start posting Texans stuff in the Colts section haha.

But really, breaking up his hard to do, but you gotta move on, you've got a great guy in Luck who may not be as good looking but he's even nicer :) so just forget about those CDs you left in Peyton's truck, it's just an excuse for you to see him again, and you need to get him out of your mind.

So let me understand the point you are attempting to make here....

Because a former player was (1) flown in the Colts' private jet, and (2) participates in a news conference announcing his separation from the team, he is then entitled to be followed by the Colts forum for the rest of his career?

Yes. Because he was more than just a QB for the team. Some players mean more to a franchise than others. Similar to Irsay giving Edge a SB ring even though he was not with the team when the Colts won the SB.
I think that is rather thin.

Two mistakes there... you think that you think and you think I care what you think.

I thnk the forum should be open to discussion of ALL COLTS past and present.

..and nothing should be moved or shunted aside..

I know there's a group that's tired of hearing about him and I get that.

But he's gojng to be the elephant in the room for 5 years...

Please move this post to the Draft forum as Luck is not a member of the Colts any discussion about Luck does not belong in the Colts forum.

Then you would have no problems if someone posted about Lacey or Gonzo, and how they are doing with their new teams, here in the Colts' forum.

Feel free, but what does Garcon have to do with Manning?

Garcon has nothing to do with Manning. Garcon has everything to do with the Colts, in your opinion. any former player may be discussed at will in the colts forum is essentially what you are saying.

because Manning took a plane ride with the owner he is fair game to litter the Colts board with his topics? I will happily discuss all things Peyton as I will be following him closely in Denver, along with majority of our posters here.

but he has no more business being discussed on the TEAM board, because he is no longer a member of the team. when he retires as Colt, its fair game. I don't want to see Peyton's stats each game he has with Denver clogging up our TEAM board.

get it?

good, now you are getting it. After the draft when he is given his jersey, we will be able to talk about him all we want on the TEAM forum.

enough with Manning here on the Colts forum. I am glad we both agree.

I would suggest the mods do a poll now that Peyton is officially signed with another team.

If the majority of posters (> 50%) feel Peyton threads should all be in NFL General, that would be a fair way of saying this was the determinant to move all Peyton threads in NFL General.

I am sure posters will be fine with such a poll.

No, that is not what I am essentially saying. But nice try.

Yes

Then don't open and read the threads.

get it?

Don't you get it? No one is forcing you to open the thread, no one is forcing you to respond to the thread.

Wow, what you lack in humor you make up for with no originality. Phil, I've read a lot of your posts over the years, we agree on very little and this is not one of them.

Do you talk about your exs in front of your wife and children?

rough similie there..

...which ones of us here are wife and child...? (never mind)

None of us know each other here and we have the options to punch up whatever thread we want...

I dont punch up fantasy football posts, for example....when someone starts to post about it, I step away

..but I understand that some crazy folks like it.

I wouldnt rule it out...

Like I said..Manning is going to be the elephant in the room for 5 years...

Its going to be hard to discuss Colts football without mentioning him and how he's doing.

A compliment of Manning is not a slam on Luck....Their orbits are seperate now

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
