    I was right there with you. I am not a Colts or Manning fan, but I found myself reflecting on his career. It will be so strange to see him in another jersey.
    Let's get weird!

    Re: Peyton

    I don't think the guy is done, I think he has 2-3 good solid years left in him yet. If he were to go to a team like the Texans or maybe the 49ers he could potentially win another Super Bowl. But anywhere he goes should at least make the playoffs once or twice during his presence.

    I have always thought the Phins make some sense but my darkhorse is Cleveland, just appears to me a better fit than many might think. They'd need to supplement the offense early in the draft and sign Reggie Wayne but I think it's doable. Plus their defense played pretty well last year.

    FA:
    Manning
    Wayne

    Draft:
    1A - RB - Richardson
    1B - RT - Adams
    2nd - WR - Stephen Hill

    Do you use a rehabbing and iffy Manning to ease in Luck or do you just go with Luck? I think the Colts think that Luck can come in and immediately star.

    I also think Manning ought to retire. The whole Colts offense was built around Peyton. It is finely tuned to his skills and he and his receivers worked long and hard to get it tuned. Even if he is totally healthy, I just don't think he can go to another team and immediately replicate what he did in Indy. It will take a year or two and I don't think he has that much gas in his tank. But he will play another year just to prove it to himself that he still can play and I agree that he'll be mediocre at best with a totally new offense and receivers.

    Finally, I thought Manning handled yesterday with total class. That was an enormously difficult day and he had only good things to say about the team, the owners, the front office and the Indy fans. Peyton really is a good guy.
    I wish Manning well but I will be surprised if he does that well wherever he winds up. 36 is old for almost any QB, especially one with health issues trying to re-start his career with another team.

    He doesn't appear that he's going to drag this out.

    Here is an article stating the same thing as my thinking. Not saying it will happen but fun to think about.
    Let me say I like and respect Tebow. However it's not Kyle Orton etc we are talking about as far as bringing in and starting, but one of the best QB's ever.

    Thank you for making me laugh out loud this morn. I was one in the arguement with him and think that he is just a Manning hater.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    You can't pass on Andrew Luck if you are Indy. Manning has been the franchise since he was drafted, Luck is believed to be the best college qb to come out since Manning. It's not fair to Manning for all he's done to ask him to come back and be a glorified coach and serve as a distraction by fans should Luck have a Manning type rookie season. If there was no other interest in Peyton I could see him coming back and accepting that role but Peyton even at 75% is still better than 85% of the quarterbacks in the NFL.

    Already its been reported that he's visited Miami and Arizona. Other reports have the Jets, Seattle, among others contacting his agent.

    Live chopper footage following an SUV carrying Peyton Manning around Denver is a bit much.

    Listened to ESPN radio this morning and they said there was a poll taken in Denver on go get Manning or stick with Tebow and Manning was ahead with around 66% of the vote.

    God that franchise is weird. Have they ever had a decent offense? They are just weird, year after year.
