Was Demarcus Ware breathing down his neck? No. Everyone looks great when there's no pass rush. Oh..and how do you figure he's going to hold up with our shaky o-line? Sorry but I just can't invest in a 36 year old qb who sat out a year cause he had to have multiple neck procedures that sucked the life out of his arm. Too risky. Again, why can't we just go out and get our own guy? Build around him for the next 12-15 years...like all the other winning organizations do.

That video is inconclusive. Also, not ONCE during the presser did Manning say he's healthy.

Let's be real here, if Manning was even close to 100%, there's no presser today and the Colts are talking about Manning under center, Luck behind him, to start the season.

re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

Teams that don't have a established QB ranked by my speculation of Peyton's priority/preference:

o Arizona
o Jets
o Miami
o Redskins
o Seattle
oBrowns

Teams with an established QB ranked by my speculation of Peyton's priority/preference:

o Houston
o 49ers
o KC

Healthy or not I don't think there was a chance they were going to bring him back. They made it clear when they hired a new GM and head coach that they were cleaning house and moving on. Plus you don't draft a guy like Luck and sit him for 2-3 years.

'Xactly. Once Dungy, Caldwell and Polian were gone, the owner effectively rid the team of all senior staff with any loyalty to Peyton Manning.

Why does it have to be one or the other? What if it's Manning and Tannehill or Cousins, still feel the same way? Wouldn't that address going for it now while building for the next decade?

If they do sign him, then they should draft a Tannehill, Weeden, or Foles to learn from Manning and develop. Since Grossman doesn't have a contract and Crompton and Beck does, I'd favor Crompton backing up Manning since Beck isn't a quality back up let alone a quality starter. I hope I'm understood now.
Yes, I missed the word "unless" in your original post which is key to your post

I think PM is going anywhere but the NFC EAST does not want to compete with his brother to make the playoffs. IMO he wouldn't mind playing him in the playoffs & SB but not the division.

Come on.... thought I heard there was a $5000 hamburger out there somewhere?

I don't think so. Colts had a "perfect storm" of sorts this off-season with so many FAs and the #1 pick. Time was ripe for a change

PM is a competitor and will go where he feels the most comfortable playing, it doesnt matter what division.

I know you didn't ask me but I doubt it. He should make his rounds check out each facility and make his decision. Someone will give him the money he's looking for.

What I wonder is how many teams already were in touch with the Agent and could there already be a deal in place with some team? say the Skins and an agreement to bring on board specific players he wanted to have brought here with him when FA starts? Only then would we see him sign something so quick.

re: Colts Officially Release Peyton Manning (QB Thread #11)

I think anyone who thinks Peyton is scared of competing in the same division as his brother is crazy. If me and my brother both played quarterback in the NFL, I would relish the opportunity to play him twice a year in the same division. I would think most brothers feel the same way. Look at the way he acts. Does anybody think his competitive fire would hold him back from signing with us?

If they compete when it comes to Oreos, they'll compete when it comes to football.
