    Where are all the stories on Manning's contract?

    Remember at the beginning of the year when almost every other story to come from every major news outlet was criticizing the Pats for not signing Brady? Well, Peyton Manning still hasn't signed and is set to be a free agent if a deal doesn't get done with the Colts. It seems a little ridiculous to me that the media wouldn't leave the subject alone when it came to Brady and the Pats, but we haven't heard a thing about Manning and the Colts.

    Do you all think it's a sure thing that Manning is going to sign with the Colts? What if the new CBA doesn't allow franchise tags? Could he switch teams if he doesn't think the Colts are set for a future Superbowl run?

    Pretty interesting isn't? I, and I am sure others, pointed this out last summer. The media was just irrationally all over the Brady deal day by day by day. We heard nothing with Gomer whatsoever, yet Gomer continues to milk Indy's payroll every time he's due for a deal. As proven, there is one set of rules/barometers/expectations for 31 NFL teams and one special one for the Pats. It's a fact. It's not an opinion anymore.

    Well, according to ESPN's talking heads, a plethora of other media outlets, many NFL fans brainwashed by the media, etc, the Colts are just the bestest organization in sports with a spotless run of execution both on and off the field. Polian is the best GM in the NFL and actually drafts better than anyone, as well as spending money well in free agency.

    Niz could be right.  Or, it is possible that Brady and/or his agent made sure the story got out last year.  Brady is supposedly close with Michael Silver who wrote the national article that started the media storm.  Maybe Manning doesn't have any reporters that close to him, or maybe he and his agent aren't yet ready to start planting stories.

    Or, they tried to plant stories and no one gave a &%$!.

    Maybe the media just knows signing a first-rate QB like Brady is more important than signing a second-tier guy like Manning?

    (Just kidding of course)

    I think the Colts are waiting for Polian's Competition Committee to declare that any team based in the state of Indiana is hereby exempt from the limits of the salary cap until 2020 (by then Polian's drinking will have killed him and Manning will be retired).

    Once Polian rams that new rule through, they'll re-sign Peyton Wink

    Yea Underdogg take your "maybe" and stick it. You have no proof Brady did anything like that so shut up. IMO Brady doesnt play the media game or the contract game. So unless you know he planted storys and have proof keep it to yourself. How funny would it be if Manning pulled a LeBron? What would happen if Manning suddenly wanted to test the market and see if he could go to another team? What team would he go to? Im not saying he would just saying I wonder what the backlash would be. I personally would laugh. I would think he would go to an NFC team who play in a dome because one the NFC is soft as sh*t and so is Manning and playing in a dome is for players who are soft as sh*t and Manning is. So my money would be on him going to the Vikings. But we all know he will resign with the Colts.

    Yep, Vikings.

    I have to ask - where are you guys located? I would certainly expect story after story from the Boston papers on Brady's contract. As I now live in the DC area, I can say there were pretty much no stories around here. The only time I saw it was online in this forum. I don't even remember much on ESPN.com (but I could be wrong.) 

    Just adding the perspective of someone no longer just outside Boston.

    Manning isn't going anywhere. He will be a colt for another 4-5 years.  Carry on about something else, this really isn't a topic.
