    Congratulations to the Colts and Peyton. Both parties deserved to get the deal done, and I tip my hat to Peyton for not requesting to be the highest-paid player in the NFL.

    We as Patriots fans like to rag on the Colts and Peyton, but this deal was finally completed and with dignity.

    Will be fun watching Peyton and Tom continue to duel it out atop the NFL.

    This is a silly post. 

    Of course it's a lot of money for one player - just as the amount that Brady got was a lot of money for one player. 

    If Brady had gotten this deal we'd be praising the Patriots and Brady.

    Give credit where credit is due and move on. The Colts and Manning both agreed on a very reasonable deal. I tip my cap to Peyton for not leveraging the Colts into making him the highest-paid player in the NFL.

    As much as I have my own personal rivalry with the Colts, I must say this is good for them and Manning.  Looking to sign for less then expected so the team can spread some money around, props to him.  Really would have hated to see them drag this through the mud. Now that this is behind them, they can move on.

    what a "toolish" statement.  Did you say this (lotta money for one player) when Brady signed his 18 mill/yr deal?

    Totally Agree.  It is fun watching Peyton and Tom duel it out for many more yrs to come.

    Don't tell Texas Pat - otherwise he'll have some backtracking to do. 

    Actually I am sure TP already knows.  He has the "pulse" of the NFL.  He's likely apoplectic right now.  Can't wait - for his spin.

    You knew though the Colts had to do this.  He is the man in Indy - they are going to Ride him like Miami rode Marino ... it was just a matter of time.

    Risky?  How? 

    And how do you know the colts are over the cap?  Lets begin by reminding you that as a franchised player his cap # was 23 mill.  So even if there isn't a unique structure to his cap # over the five years, which I am betting there is, at a minimum he just saved the colts 5 million in cap money. 

    For a guy that treats everyone every day as if they are stupid, you really don't know jack sh*t.

    Cool

    Patty - I asked you last night where the evidence from Manning was that he was asking for more than he got.  Do you not know, or were you just trying to ignore me?

    Manning deserves every penny of it.  When Brady and Manning retire it will be a little like when Magic and Bird retired.

    Over his career the Colts will have paid him over 200 million. That's a lot of mulah for a sub .500 playoff QB.

    Babe, once again with the silly full attribution of team records to one player.

    good work by both Manning and Colts.

    As much as we hate the colts and Manning - credit when it is due.

    Well done.

    It's all smoke and mirrors that he gave back. He took top money for his age.

    Looks like he took a lesson from Tom and actually thought of the team as far as money goes. Finnally something I can respect frpm Peyton other than his sometimes funny commercials.

    Gee, wonder that underdoggg will say about this.  The press is only right if quoting "sources close to."  Sounds like this guy, a NFL reporter isn't buying the spin.  Wonder what doggg will think of that.  Puzzles, adding up 2 + 2, and the nonesuch.  Hmmmm.  PM takes a front-end loaded 23M deal for three years, but he's looking out for team mates and helping management.  Sounds fishy to me.

    Re: Peyton Manning - 5 YRS - 90 MIL

    The real question is...why did he take this long to sign?  He mentioned that he didn't want to work out the details on a new contract during the season.  Fair enough, but the season ended in January.  If he REALLY was not interested in being the highest-paid player then why did he not simply sign a contract similar to what Brady signed for, at about the same time?
