Colts Authority reader matt_has wrote a piece that offers a different perspective regarding Peyton Manning's future with the Colts. This is another excellent piece we thought readers would enjoy on the front page. Preface: I can see both sides of the Manning/Luck debate, but I expect Manning to be cut. With that expectation in mind, this is primarily a therapeutic release for myself.  Some moments in your life stick with you forever, locked into an pseudo-picture frame for years. Collecting mental dust in the archives of your mind to be retrieved and shared every so often. Detail by detail. You can describe the minutiae of the moment to your audience as if they were there with you, breathing it all in. When Baghdad was being lit up like a Christmas tree (the first time), I was at a party with my best friend. We were the only two down in the basement watching the footage. Wood paneled walls, and the TV was on a milk crate. Michael Jordan retired in January of '99, and w...

Redskins Interested in Peyton Manning If He Becomes Available

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, a person with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that the Redskins would be interested in Colts quarterback Peyton Manning if he becomes available.

Sibling Rivalry: 10 Reasons Eli is Better than Peyton

Whether he plays another down in the NFL or not, Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts is without a doubt a first ballot Hall of Famer.  His impressive 399 touchdowns, 54,828 passing yards, four league MVP’s and 94.9 career passer rating makes him a shoe in.  Given those stats it would be absurd to come out and say that the younger of the Manning brothers, Eli, is better...

Peyton Manning's increasingly thorny relationship with the Indianapolis Colts -- will owner Jim Irsay pay $28 million to retain his injured four-time NFL MVP quarterback? -- threatened on Monday to strip the spotlight completely from Manning's Super Bowl XLVI-playing brother Eli, who arrived in town with the NFC champion New York Giants. That's because Peyton, his status...

Peyton Manning: A New York Jet?

Since the New York Jets collapse in the 2011 regular season, there’s been a lot of finger pointing in the organization as to what went wrong. And a lot of that blame game has fallen onto quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Peyton Manning knew little brother Eli was a champ

Peyton Manning Should Listen To Rob Lowe & Retire, Its Time

Rob Lowe could have jumped the gun when he said Peyton Manning is going to retire in the off-season. I think it is time for the warhorse who has had a great career to hang up his cleats and go out while he is still able to function. Manning and Jim Irsay are even at odds. I know they will tell you they are on the same page, truth be told Manning is clearly upset with the changes...

Irsay, Manning done with spat?

Irsay: No Peyton talk before Super Bowl (AP)
