So If Peyton Manning Wins Multiple Super Bowl Titles With The Broncos...


Recommended Posts

If he wins multiple superbowls in the next few years he will be remembered as THE G.O.A.T....period. As far as being remembered as either a Colt or a Bronco...to us he will obviously always be a Colt.

wont happen and in truth he isnt the Greatest Of All Time, stats back that up and SuperBowl victories? Tom Brady has more, is he the greatest of all time? likely not, Favre has multiple superbowls and all time records while he has thrown his share of picks (number one in that category as well) he is still the best, stats back that up, teams win superbowls, players earn records, stats and so forth

So let me get this straight...you're saying that the ALL-TIME leader in Interceptions thrown and fumbles lost ( in other words, the all-time leader in turnovers) is the greatest QB of all time??

Yes I am go look at all the other POSITIVE records he owns all the main ones for a quarterback, are you saying Peyton is the greatest? cause superbowl victories alone would shut that argument down

Wow. I have read too many of your *ic posts. You are no colts fan. Favre won 1 Super Bowl, 0 SB MVPs, turnover machine, and had a much better team throughout his career. No. Peyton will hopefully prove to everyone what he can do with a better team, even of not fully healthy.

But the best thing to do in all honesty is to not get into these type of discussions and just enjoy the game for what it is arguments can be made in many different direction, I choose the one with the most touchdows and yards

This answer, among many others, make this thread in particular and the topic in general, categorically, mind-numbingly ridiculous. First off, your stats are just simply wrong.

But more importantly, someone can make a very reasoned, rational argument that Manning is the greatest QB of all time right now regardless of the outcome of his final years. Just like someone can make the argument for:

Brady or

Montana or

Unitas or

Marino or

Bradshaw or

Baugh or

Graham or

Favre

It is a pointless debate with no ability to truly determine the "winner."

Okay, Favre played 20 seasons. Manning has played 13. Favre has roughly 17,000 more passing yards. Manning would need to average 2500 yards per season to pass that if he were to play the same number of years. Favre has 109 more TDs, so if Manning were to average 16 more over 7 seasons, he'd pass Favre. Looking at numbers blindly isn't the best way of going about this. As for the G.O.A.T. argument, it really holds no water for me. This is a far different era than when Marino and Montana played, and that was a far different era than when Unitas played.

We've been fortunate to watch a truly great player in Manning, and I wish him continued luck in Denver.

If you think Brett 'He's just a kid out there' Favre is the GOAT, then you need your Colts fan card taken away.

I get the Brady V Manning debate. At least Brady is respectable. I have zero respect for Favre, the man and the quarterback.

agreed, and I am not saying he wont reach them records if he stays healthy and plays that long which I doubt then he could very well get them, I just enjoy the game for what it is, I usually dont get into those arguments lol

Not Peyton

Since you seem to be the expert on this, let me ask you some questions. What is the standard to determine the greatest player of all time? How do you arrive at giving someone that title? Most yards? Most wins? Most Super Bowls?

Not the same. History remembers Super Bowls. Peyton wins a Super Bowl with the Bronco he is equally a Bronco as he is a Colt.

I think even if Peyton wins a SB as a Bronco, he will still be remembered as a Colt. I give you that him holding a Lombardi in Orange will be added to the memory bank.

At one time many people considered Dan Marino the best QB of all time and he only went to a Superbowl, many of those people consider Peyton the best. My point is SBs are not a prerequisite, skill and ability are.

    • Here's a statistical analysis for return on investment of our draft picks done by PFF: https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-historical-draft-success-for-all-32-nfl-teams   The analysis is based on PFF's WAR metric(wins above replacement).    I won't quote the whole thing, but if you are interested, it's worth checking out the whole article with all explanations about their graphs. I will just post the main graphs with what they show...    First... Total WAR added by those 4 classes since 2017:     Colts are at no. 11 in the league and the Chiefs are no. 1 thanks mainly to Mahomes. It's interesting to see that ALL of the teams with good young QBs drafted in that period are in the top 10 - Chiefs(Mahomes), Ravens(Lamar), Texans(Watson), Bills(Allen), Browns(Mayfield).   Also worth pointing out that the top 2 teams are the 2 teams in this year's Superbowl, which underlines the importance of the draft towards building a winning team. And the Texans' value is derived almost single-handedly by Watson - the picks other than Watson have contributed negative WAR combined for the Texans.    The next graph is what PFF calls "draft consistency". It includes not just the WAR, but it weighs it based on draft position and on-field position. Here's where the Colts do very very well:     The Colts are the best team at draft consistency in the last 4 years. An interesting tidbit from the discussion in the article here is that Mahomes has had total WAR of 11 for those 4 years(best QB - 99.99 percentile drafted at no. 10), while the projected WAR for Nelson(best guard drafted in top 10 - 99.99 percentile) is just 1.6WAR. This just comes to show just how much more valuable QB is than even a generational guard. Here's what PFF writes about Colts' draft consistency and why they come 1st in that metric:     The third graph is weighing the WAR production by round(the example given - top 10 pick succeeding in the 90th percentile usually gives you about 2.0 WAR, while 90th percentile success for a 7th round pick gives you just about 0.2WAR.). Dot's size indicates the weight(round) of each pick :     Colts again rank very well at no. 2 in the league here.     And here's the last graph in which they take into account positional value:     Still the Colts rank in the top 5.    And finally they ask the question - does that mean that certain GMs are better than others at evaluating draft eligible players and the answer is interesting...    You can read the rationale on the link above... 
    • quick update, wife is doing much better and while some side effects still linger, she's up and moving and even voluntarily went back to work after her doctor approved it.
    • Charles / Christian whoever Mr C. Darrisaw ftw lol guess I need more coffee myself.  Then again I did leave my reading glasses elsewhere last night...   Bengals draft history of #1 picks and ending up on IR or out for long periods of time was the storyline here within 6 of the past years.  Odds don't look good for year #7 if you are superstitious. The Bengals already have a QB and LT they draft and the could really use a TE but really need a RT and upgraded guards.  Sewell projections never made sense to us here in Ohio.  Lesson learned in the NFL is to protect the QB.  Guess they could stay put and draft that TE then a center early in the 2nd would solve some of the Bengals issues.   To keep the masses happy and get that franchise LT and reduce that cost of overpaying 4 OL at least this mock would help take care of that and then some while also resetting our Edges plus backfilling players lost in FA for OL depth.
    • Turay has had 2 good games against bad OTs in his career.  All other games he's been avaerage.  No more "raw" DEs with upside please.  At least not before the 4th or 5th round.  Take players who can actually play in rounds 1 through 3.   All of the DEs and DTs Ballard has drafted should not have been taken before round 4, with Grover being the best, and who was taken in round 4 (Or 5).    And he did not draft Buckner, he traded for a known quantity.
    • you all need some coffee and try reading over the whole thread again.   Offer is to trade Kelly and our 2nd round pick...post was updated not giving away our 5th   Rest of you all need to go back a year or so and look over the Colts beat writer and value of trading away our top players and what it would command for each for Leonard, Kelly, and Nelson as the top 3 and he broke it down even farther per trades for rest of Colts top players. Again I have Darrisaw going before Sewell so really not a big shocker but yes one trade could lead to another if the Colts wanted to purse a QB.   At least this scenario allows the Colts, again in my opinion to draft the best LT available early, and again we took Nelson 6th overall so no a stretch of imagination.  Then trade back with the Packers and select the best center available who is a Kelly clone if not better younger version.   Sounds like the Colts hit two home runs if this is baseball in the first.  Remind who's on second of that's right we won't have a second round pick under this assumption.
