Peyton, NFL fans are grateful for everything you brought to the game. Now go home and be with your family (and take Tony Dungy with you!)
I’m back again with 5 more NFL-related things that must be stopped. Let’s dive in!
1. Premature Ejectulation. I made “ejectulation” up because I needed a word to describe taking out a really bad QB out when it’s too late to win the game or prove any discernible point. In general, I’m opposed to benching QBs during games UNLESS that QB is the franchise player. I know that sounds odd, but benching a franchise player is proving a point. It’s just a gesture to wake the guy up after a bad spate of games. It doesn’t shake the team’s confidence in what is going to happen next. Benching guys who are in jeopardy of not starting just causes confusion.
What would have been the harm if Mike Shanahan had have let Rex Grossman finish out his game against the Philadelphia Eagles and announced Beck as the starter before the next game after talking to the team? H...

With each passing defeat, the Colts move closer to one of the most fascinating storylines in NFL offseason history. They're a joke without quarterback Peyton Manning -- who has become the first subject of a half-serious MVP campaign due to his spot on the bench -- and that point was driven home by Sunday's 62-7 loss to the Saints. There was no question that they had given...
Many have already made the comparisons of top NFL prospect, Andrew Luck, to Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning. Both have shown their similarities, and I wouldn’t be surprised seeing Luck turning out just as good, or even better, than the Colts’ quarterback. So far, the Colts are front-runners with the Miami Dolphins for winning the Suck for [...]
Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy were once known in their professions as great winners who always fell just short of being champions. You'd think each would be grateful to the other for changing that reputation by winning Super Bowl XLI in 2007. Dungy showed business isn't personal, though, when he reportedly told NBC analyst Dan Patrick on Sunday that he would consider trading...
This video pretty much sums up the 62-7 loss that the Colts suffered last night at the hands of the Saints. Yea we all know that Peyton Manning doesn't play defense and there is no excuse for giving up 62 points, but come on guys. Painter went 9/17 with 67 yards and a pick. He also added the fumble in the video below that was one of the uglier plays of yesterday. Painter...
Indianapolis Colts superstar quarterback Peyton Manning could begin jogging this week.
Colts president Bill Polian toild SI.com of his franchise player's progress from offseason neck surgery, which may sideline Manning for the entire season. However, the Colts have not ruled out Manning's return later in the campaign.
According to the report, Polian said he and Manning...
The Indianapolis Colts at the New Orleans Saints. It was being billed at the beginning of the 2011 season as the rematch of Super Bowl XLIV. With Indianapolis now bearing an 0-6 record and Peyton Manning presumably sitting in a suite inside the Superdome for this particular matchup, it becomes something well short of any kind of a real rematch on second thought.
The Saints, meanwhile...
Andrew Luck is the perfect human. He oozes off-the-field character that somehow applies to his on-the-field performance. He has all the physical tools; he’s the next Jim Plunkett. No, the next John Elway. No, the next Peyton Manning. He’s as smart as Steve Jobs and as athletically gifted as Bryan Clay. He motivates his teammates like Kennedy, yet is results-oriented like FDR.
We are nearing the halfway point of the NFL season and three teams are still en route for ultimate awfulness. Only two teams in NFL history have managed this feat and only one officially in the current NFL regular season format. The ultimate season of futility. The elusive defeated season.
The first such season was in 1976 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 0-14. It’s really difficult...
