Recommended Posts

Dates: Saturday Aug 7th (6:30pm) and Sunday Aug 8th (7pm)

James is part of the Class of 2020 and will be enshrined Aug. 7. The ceremony was postponed from last summer by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Manning’s moment, as a member of the Class of 2021, comes a day later, Aug. 8. 

Jim Irsay will present Edge into Canton, and Archie Manning will present his son Peyton.

 

Here's an article on how to WATCH the HOF enshrinement ceremonies - ESPN, NFL Network, or livestream.

And if anyone is heading to Canton for the ceremonies, here's a complete guide to all of the festivities.

 

Here's an article on Edge's historic, record-setting first two seasons.

Here's an interview with PM where he discusses having his father present him into the HOF. 

And here's a just published article telling the PM/Edge story from Jim Irsay's perspective.

 

Here's a fun article about Manning and James, including the hypothetical question - what if the Colts had picked Ryan Leaf and Ricky Williams instead of these two Hall of Famers? 

 

And just for fun, here's a short Baldy breakdown of that good old 18-88 magic.

I wish they had the Colts play the Broncos in the Hall of Fame game this year.  It could have been the Peyton Bowl.  Still very glad to see two more horse shoe legends take their rightful spot in Canton with Polian, Marvin, and Dungy.  Hopefully Adam, Reggie, Freeney, and Mathis all join them.

Well I think we can finally say it.  The Colts made the right pick.

 

 

in all seriousness classy post from Leaf.

The relationship between these two, getting to see Leaf grow as a man, the grace Manning showed endlessly to him.....this is the beauty of sports.

Congrats to both men.

Peyton is the GOAT. Brady has the rings and always had great supporting casts but in terms of positional acuity, it's 18.

 

Also with Edgerrin, in my mind he was going to be one of the GOATS if not the GOAT. Anyone who saw EJ pre injury knows what i mean, he was a BEAST. He still had a great career as evidenced by the gold jacket but my oh my, that's testament to how good he was. Pre injury Edge was >> post injury Edge.

IMO the #1 reason the Colts are looked at as one of the greatest franchises ever is because of Peyton. Had we not drafted him who knows how Colts history would've turned out? It is between 3 guys for GOAT at least in my mind = Brady, Montana, and Peyton. That is my opinion and world wide many would agree with me. They all just have the criteria, simple to me. Peyton getting that 2nd ring as a starter was so gigantic to go along with his 5 League MVP's, I don't think some people realize how important that was. Rodgers is still trying and Brees never got it.

Scary thought/realization. Once all these Colts from the Manning era are done getting in the hall, it's going to be a LONG time before we see another Colt get inducted, a generation at least. Maybe Vinny from the Luck era but certainly no others who i can think of. Lets hope this Ballard era brings some entrants, Quenton looks good so far.

Vinny will make it in but outside of that it will be a long while for any other Colt to get in not in the Manning era. Vinny was a big part of the Manning era though. In 2006 his 5 FG's against the Ravens was critical to winning that playoff game. If Nelson has 7 or 8 more years like he has just had he will get in IMO. It is about longevity with him. Playing OG most people want to see at least a great 10 yr career of domination. He has had 3 so far.

    • We will see how the season plays out, I think we will lose on Sunday but if we win that game that would be a huge boost. To your comment, I have seen many years where teams have had a huge point differential in the positive and only be 8-8 and then teams that are barely in the negative be 11-5 lol. I'll take a quote from Magic Johnson, after the Lakers beat Boston 107-106 in Game 4 of the 1987 Finals "Doesn't matter if you win by 30 or by 1, as long as you win".   All people in the end care about is winning to have that good record.
    • We just have to get healthy on the OL, and to be frank, a lot better on D....  Seattle's trenches are not that good, yet spanked us on both sides.   At present, we are tied for last in the league.... and we are what our record says we are lol. So the Texans are better than us. And we're on par with Jax... And we have dropping our yearly game to Jax to look for.....   I jest.. of course. But at the same time serious.  
    • IDK... Didn't Luck screw up years for us by going to Denver lol... Or was he snow boarding somewhere else.
    • Pats 23 Jets 13 Broncos 19 Jags 16 Bills 27 Dolphins 24 49ers 24 Eagles 13 Rams 27 Colts 20 - I hope I am wrong Raiders 20 Steelers 23 Bengals 24 Bears 17 Texans 17 Browns 30 Saints 23 Panthers 17 Vikings 20 Cards 26 Falcons 9 Bucs 34 Titans 26 Seahawks 27 - Titans will lose again IMO Cowboys 24 Chargers 23 Chiefs 30 Ravens 24 Lions 17 Packers 31
    • Good Luck to you!    Nothing better than landing on your feet for a fresh start.   Thank you for your service, and hope opportunities are heading your way.   You earned it, you deserve it.
