    NFL 2012 Offseason, Free Agency, Draft

    Payment by the Colts to keep Peyton Manning is due March 8th. What will happen in the next week?

    RGIII had talked to the EAGLES. At least the team learns a little more about him. I'm glad the Birds franchised tagged Desean Jackson. He gets a $9 million raise after playing for a half mil. We need to get RB LeSean McCoy a good deal.

    I say the colts will cut Payton before the 8th. 28 Million is just so much for a quarterback whose future is unknown (yes I realize he's back to virtually 100% throwing). The Colts will have Luck so they really have no more need for Manning.

    The latest scuttlebutt is that Reggie Wayne (a free agent) is interested in following Peyton if he goes.

    That would make the most sense too honestly. Peyton runs an extremely complicated offense and in order for any team to be on board with it, it would help to have a good WR that understands it. Peyton still has some gas in the tank but no one knows just how much. Regardless if he was to return to the Colts or not, that team needs to plan for the future. The last thing you want to do is be like the Dolphins and playing ring around the rosie on finding a replacement QB.

    A Bountygate has unfolded with the New Orleans Saints. They gave Drew Brees an exclusive franchise tag.

    My sentimental favorite would be for Peyton to go to the Titans. Competitively, I'd love to see him go to Houston. With either team, he'd have a good chance to make deep playoff runs (especially if he takes Reggie with him) He'd have the luxury of playing in a division where he knows all of the teams well, and would have 4 easy wins (2 games vs Jacksonville, 2 vs the Colts) He'd have the opportunity to stick it to Jim Irsay twice a year.

    As a Colts fan, I've been so spoiled by Peyton that it will be hard to go back to the days where finishing 8-8 was like winning the Super Bowl, but it's coming. Luck may be great, but is he good enough to drag Jim Irsay to respectability? Does lightning strike the same spot twice?

    That was emotional, and it was sincere. At least when Peyton was talking. When Durr-say was up there spewing his lies, I wanted to puke.

    Lest you be inclined to believe ANYTHING he said about "what's best for the team... care about the fans.... not about money..." let me point out a fun little fact: He's known for weeks (if not months) that he was going to do what he did today. Why then, did he wait? Why, just coincidentaly, last Friday was the deadline for season ticket renewals. Dude is a first class piece of trash, just like his father was.

    Peyton the town GREEN?

    I heard Peyton was in Miami. League business starts on Tuesday. Houston and Arizona sounds interesting.

    Never forget- he's a competitor. He's not hurting for money, he's sticking with the game because he likes playing and wants another ring. He's going to pay much more attention to the question "where do I have the best chance to win, and win NOW?" than "Who is going to pay me the most?"

    He's also said that he'd like to wrap this up and be singed in a week or so. He wants to get to work FAST, and doesn't want to keep other free agent QB's on hold from signing. Nobody looking for a free agent QB is going to go after Vince Young while Peyton is still on the market.

    Indy mayor Greg Ballard has declared Mar 9th "Blue Friday," where we're all supposed to wear our #18 jerseys in support of Peyton. I'll be wearing my UT orange #16. That way, I'll be supporting Manning without supporting the crackhead's team. Don't get me wrong- I liked the Colts before #18, and I'll like them after #18. But I'm really ticked right now. Time will heal. A new owner would speed that along.
