    Hope Luck pans out.


    Will not be surprised if he isn't what he's being made out to be.


    Hope Manning comes back to Indy as a coach/offensive coordinator.

    Good. Maybe the Chief's will snag him. We are desperate.

    Don't think it's a smart move for them. But as a Texans fan I love the fact he is leaving , and hopefully staying out of the AFC South.
    As for going back to the Colts as a coach, I can't see that anytime soon with all the comments made about it being all business no friendship left with them.
    I watched a few games with Luck playing and was not impressed with him.

    It's just gotta chap Peyton's hide that Eli has two Super Bowl wins to his one.

    If he can play even 50% as well as he used to, he'd be a major upgrade here in Seattle.

    I'd take Peyton. Don't think he shown much signs of slowing down yet.

    What does it say about our economy when even Peyton Manning is out of work?

    You must be watching something different than I am. Irsay has said repeatedly (and it's been echoed by Manning) they were friends before this, and they will remain friends after this.

    Last night, Manning flew into Indy w/ Irsay on Irsay's private plane, and they had a brief, impromptu interview. Irsay said he planned to handle this "the right way" and Manning said "everything is good with me, is everything good with you Jim"

    I don't think there's any animosity. I think deep down, Peyton is going to be crushed, no way you couldn't be. As a fan, I'm crushed. I loved watching Peyton every Sunday.

    I hope wherever he goes, he has great success. I hope he is 100% and continues to pick NFL defenses apart. I just hope he doesn't do it against the Colts now!

    I'd love to see him go to either the Phins or Denver. Another place the talking heads have talked about, is Houston. Could you see Peyton, with Houston's D(even if they don't resign Mario Williams, they are still very strong on Defense), and Arian Foster? Holy smokes! Peyton has never had that strong, "just give me the ball" RB.

    The Titans will continue to be too stupid to grab him. Regardless of what their fans want.

    The Titans would be another interesting choice (but I agree, they won't do it)... Could you imagine? Peyton in the same division as the Colts, and playing us twice a year?

    CRAZY!

    There's no way he could take the punishment Big Ben has to take to play in Pittsburgh. Peyton had an awesome O line all those years. Not taking anything away from him at all, but the hits Big Ben takes routinely would not match well with cervical fusion.

    With Brees not coming to a long-term contract with the Saints, it has been thrown around that they could try to snag him.

    Id rather have Brees but they could do worse than Manning, assuming he is healthy to play.

    I agree, he needs to go somewhere w/ a solid O-Line. Peyton is not good when he's running. He's a classic pocket passer. You give him time, he will pick the D apart.

    Houston has a pretty good O-Line, not real sure about Miami

    The Saints tagged Brees, so that isn't happening.

    Besides the two neck surgeries thing and him not playing a single down last season? Him rebounding isn't exactly a sure thing.
