    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    One can only guess.  Possible reasons:

    1. Getting big guaranteed deals done in this uncapped year has required a lot of creative writing.  He may simply want to wait for the new CBA.  It's not like he's worried he better get his money now or never.  Either he or his agent or both may be uncomfortable with all of the creative writing needed to strike a deal this year.

    2. In an uncapped year, you can guarantee money against skill OR injury, but not against skill AND injury.  I don't think that is a trivial point.  I think they have been using some very creative writing as I mention above to circumvent this, but all of that creative writing is somewhat untested.

    3. No guarantee there will even be a franchise tag next year.  Probably will be, but no guarantee.  The owners are going to have to give up something important if they want both a longer regular season as well as giving players a reduced percentage of revenue.  Don't rule out something like this as the price for that.

    I highly doubt it is related to them passing on a perfect season.  I'm sure he's still ticked off somewhere between the ears, but I doubt he'd look for a new team only because of that.  The Colts have taken good care of Peyton.  They've always made sure he had a good line and good receivers to work with.

    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    Good for Peyton. I hate the guy but America is made on free enterprise and making all you can. There is some thought to this post though. The colts do have some chinks in the armor. I don't see a hugh plan to bolster the forces. They never play the free agant market in the off season. they never move around in the draft. I'm sure for Manning its more about rings now then money. Retirement should be in his thoughts so if planned proper he'll never have to worry about money again.
    So if Rings matter more then money what are his options?
    Minne...  couple fast receivers, excellent running back, dome, and NFC most of all. thats as guranteed in the playoffs every year as he has it now.
    Dallas. Dez and roy Williams, good running game, an owner who will get you anything you want for a ring. Jerry Jones would have NEVER rested the starters.
    I dont think he'd consider Miami, AFC east is too tough a division. Then theres the reach teams (warm weather) like Arizona and San Fran.

    This will be Mannings ultimate loyalty test in Indy. Mannings mug is all over billboards in Indy. He'd make a gazillion $ in Dallas or San Fran.

    Bob Kraft should inquire.  Tom Brady needs a good back up.

    I'd have to say NO to this. They'd do better signing someone they could count on on a cold, snowy day in January!

    I seriously doubt Manning wants to go elsewhere. Irsay is going to pay him, pretty much whatever he wants. They did have to wait until Tom got his, to set the price as it were. But even if they did tag him in 2011, he'd be guaranteed around $22 million and still be able to get a contract pretty much at will the next year. And I wouldn't think he'd want to sign with a team that doesn't have a legitimate shot at a SB. All those teams have a QB locked up. I'd say part of it was to make Irsay sweat it a bit, and part to see what happens with the CBA. If a team did agree to the picks I'm sure the Colts would match whatever he was offered, guarantees or not!

    If he leaves, he will only g to a team with an indoor stadium.  That has probably padded his stats by 10-20%.

    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    I think we have a better chance of seeing a hockey game played on the River Styx before we see the Colts let Manning leave.

    Ditto for Jeter with the Yankees. Both sides are just posturing now, but does anyone really believe that Jeter will be in any other uniform besides pinstripes next year? He's the face of their franchise, as Manning is the face of the Colts' franchise.

    Both guys will be back with their same teams next season.

    Polian is a childish, drunken, manipulative asshat, but he's not stupid, that's for sure.

    I thought the Pats were the youngest in the NFL after Moss left.

    Could be that Manning and his agent want a better idea of how the new CBA shakes out.  

    My guess is he stays in Indy.

    He just wants to know how much money there is before he decides how much he will take.

    Much like the talk about Brady and his contract...THIS IS A NON STORY!

    Manning will remain in Indy.  It's not up to him anyway.  If Indy wants him, than he has no choice other than to not play in the NFL at all.

    Nothing in the NFL surprises me but I'd be supremely shocked if he doesn't re-sign with the Colts.

    Yahoo's resident know-nothing, Michael Silver, manufactured a non-story about some supposed "disconnect" between Brady and Kraft (unsourced, naturally) that never actually amounted to anything, had no legs at all, and the slavering wannabes who live in perpetual jealousy of New England ate it up with a spoon.

    That same thought has actually crossed my mind before. Even before the recent Vince Young implosion.

    Pittsburgh dumps Big Ben because of all the bad PR he has brought the Rooney Family, and they pick up squeaky-clean Manning. Probably won't happen, but just a thought.

    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    Manning said talking contract is distracting and would rather discuss it at the end of the season.  

    Excuse me but wouldn't signing the most lucrative contract in the history of the NFL give you peace of mind.  Especially in the midst of so much uncertainty?
