    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    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?

    [QUOTE]     One has to wonder why Peyton Manning has passed on signing what would be a lucrative extension with the Indianapolis Colts? Despite assurances from Indy owner Jim Irsay to make him the league's highest paid player, Peyton refused to get involved in extension discussions during Indy's week 7 bye week.

Don't you think that the Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, or New York Jets (if they falter this year in their SB quest) would be more than willing to part with two #1 draft choices, and open up their vaults, to land Peyton?       Thoughts? 
    Could it be that you're an idiot and have no idea what you're talking about?  Yes, I think so.

    Wow, dude you're pretty angry.  Maybe you need to relax a little bit.  Funny, you call the Colts a derogatory name, right after you say they have no class.  Typical pats fan.

    I brought this up a few weeks ago too.

    I think it's certainly possible but you never know. Manning sees Brady setup for another decade of dominance while he's hanging on barely.

    Leaving Indy? I don't think so.  He knows they can, and will, franchise him.  He wants the smoke to clear on the CBA so he can go forward with the contract.  He knows he isn't leaving Indy, and I don't think he cares that much about the perfect season.  He wanted to win another Superbowl.  The Colts give him a good shot, and he does NOT want to Farve up his legacy.  It's about compensation, plain and simple.  The man is trying to amass a fortune.  He's doing a great job of it, too.  The commercials alone are netting him huge dollars.   I kind of admire the way he has gone about it.  You would think Tom would be in a better position for the sponsor money (not looking like Gomer Pyle), but his wooden acting is killing him.

    When has Brady complained publicly. And the Colts aren't even close to being younger than the Pat's what are you talking about?

    Doggggggg:  I've seen where you've noted that TB "complained in a public way" or words to that effect.  I'm a local and read/listen to alot of media.  Not once did I hear (or was it reported) that he "complained" in any way, shape, or fashion.  He discussed the situation, and per an interview on WEEI, he said (paraphrasing):  I'm under contract and I'm going to honor it.  If we work out a deal great, but for now I'm under contact for this year.  In addition, he mentioned that he'd honor his contract because he wouldn't want to embarrass his Father who raised him to honor his commitments (again, paraphrasing).  So pray tell, please show me (provide a link) anything that could be construed as "complaining."

    Re: Peyton Manning Leaving Colts?

    Well, Tex, you have made some good points in reply to my opinions. While I can't imagine him being that ticked off about the last two games in 09, it certainly is possible. And if you add in the "control" factor that gives it a bit more weight. As far as being worried about injury, unlike other QBs he's never had one. It's probably less of a concern to him then it would be to others. Besides, he knows he has seven extra guys on the field who will "protect" him! I hadn't really considered Jerry Jones. I could see him dumping (or trading) Romo to aquire Manning. But while the Jests might be interesting to Manning (think of all the money-making possibility of a "Subway Super Bowl" featuring brother against brother), they'd probably have to build a dome for just the Jests to play in! And any team trying to sign him if he were tagged would certainly put in a "poison pill" like the Vikings did with Hutch. Still, it's hard for me to to conceive him leaving Indy. But truly, there may be underlying issues which have not leaked to the media. To be sure every "expert" will be jumping on this juicy news item as soon as their season ends! I don't know if that will be more or less nauseating than the annual "Favre-watch", but at least it will be something new to be fed up with!

    Apparently so, but  he doesn't have to dog (pun intended) and make up stuff about Brady.  I don't read alot of the Indy press coverage, but from a national perspective, I haven't heard Manning gribe in the least as well.  And I don't envision him leaving the Colts.  Heck, he's on a constant contending team, and and long as he remains there, they'll be a SB contender annually.  This whole topic is much ado about nothing.

    Manning did this for his team? That is as lunatic as saying he wants to leave because they sat players last season. Manning wants more money:   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d81bc957a/article/irsay-colts-wanted-to-complete-manning-negotiations-over-bye#recommend But I suppose that is "biased reporting" or something else. If he didn't want to be a distraction he would have accepted to offer on Nov 1st and moved on with it.  www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9690Discussion%3a8d12878e-afee-405a-89ec-465451a38177&plckFindPostKey=Cat:SportsForum:9690Discussion:8d12878e-afee-405a-89ec-465451a38177Post:27aede5a-e441-453b-b557-9075056935e7 " />

    My you've gotten snarky over time.  If you'll read, its really just my opinion.  Guess maybe you thought you and your bedfellow tp were the only ones allowed that.  Go figure.  Anyway, the only ones making this news right now are those on this site.  Not much of a peep out of the nationals, because Manning and his agent have nothing to say.

    In Response to Re: Peyton Manning Leaving 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.

    Of course, it is more than likely that Brady or his handlers (at his suggestion) gave Silver the story on (forgive me) his platter.

    Doggg:  you're really stretching on this one.  I asked you some questions while responding to another one of your rediculous posts, and you've not answered.  So, I'll ask again.  Can you provide, via any media source, something from Brady's mouth that said he was complaining about his contract situation.  If not, your statements are circumstantial, and that's being kind.  You're mirroring the state of the 4th estate presently - can't use facts, make something up and hope it sticks.

    Note how the media is dead quiet on this but attacked the Krafts and harrassed Brady all summer long. This, on the heels of them playing into the Mankins temper tantrum making Kraft seem like the devil. Anyone who doesn't believe the media uses an anti-NE angle to make money is daft.
    Posted by BBReigns

    Of course if team Bundeschen delivered the story to Mr. Silver then really it isn't the media attacking the pats and Kraft, but Brady using its power to do the work for him. 

    Granted, Rusty, I know you'd never think anything dirty happens within the patriot family, but outside of that bubble you live in people can see the possibility.
