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. Now, regardless of the fact that “anonymous teammates” have ripped on Sanchez for being lazy, many people have thought for a while that Sanchez isn’t a viable starting quarterback in the NFL. I am one of those people. And before I get into why I don’t think Sanchez should be the Jets starting quarterback, I am going to take sides with those “anonymous teammates” of his and agree that Peyton Manning, if healthy, should become the Jets starting quarterback for 2012 (more on that in a moment).   But first, back to Sanchez. He played college football at USC and started a total of 16 games over three seasons–not including his freshman year when he redshirted–in that span. In 2007, Sanchez started three games for the Trojans filling in for starter John David Booty who was inju...

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. At this point there are a lot of things to consider before Manning ends up playing in another city besides Indianapolis. “No. 1, is he going to be released? No. 2, is he going...

Dallas an unlikely landing spot for Manning

Peyton Manning in a Cowboys uniform? At first thought, that sounds like a pretty good idea. Who wouldn't want a future Hall of Famer quarterbacking their team? Then reality creeps in. First and foremost, it will never happen because of the salary cap. While trading Tony Romo to make room for Manning would be the optimal move, either trading or outright cutting Romo carries...

Moments in Time

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...

Manning bleeding into Super Bowl Week

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 knew little brother Eli was a champ

Peyton Manning called it. Back when the NFL was debating the merits of Eli Manning and whether he had what it took to win a Super Bowl, Big Brother took time out of his morning-after news conference five years ago to say Eli would be on the same stage soon.

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...

Eli calls Peyton the best he’s ever seen, draws cheers in Indy

Eli Manning doesn’t seem to be getting sick of all the questions about his brother.
