Found October 16, 2013 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 23 (+2) Record: 3-3 I wasn’t shocked about the Chargers’ win over the Colts. The Colts were in an obvious trap game spot between a home upset win over the Seahawks and an impending battle with former quarterback Peyton Manning and the undefeated Broncos. The Chargers have a great offense that moves the chains with proficiency (82% moving the chains on the year), which was able to keep a Colts offense, which seemed distracted to begin with, off the field. I’m not moving them up much for that reason. They’ll have to prove they can handle success, unlike last time, when they upset the Cowboys at home and then proceeded to lose in Oakland. Their defense also remains one of the most in the NFL, allowing opponents to move the chains at an 80% rate. Week 6 Studs LT King Dunlap FS Eric Weedle Week 6 Duds LG Johnnie Troutman

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Peyton Manning strides across America this week like some modern-day Colossus, blocking out the sun from every other story on the NFL's broad horizon.

Manning's return causes dilemma in Indianapolis

Jeff Saturday is torn. It was here, in Indianapolis, where he got a legitimate chance to make an NFL roster. It was here he earned five Pro Bowl trips, won two AFC titles and a Super Bowl ring, and became one of the city's favorite players. It is here where he still lives and works, returning after one final NFL season in Green Bay, and it is here where he will always be known...

Jim Irsay on Peyton Manning: We chose Super Bowls over statistics

When Peyton Manning retires, he will have only Johnny Unitas to contend with for the honor of greatest quarterback in Indianapolis (or Baltimore) Colts history. The numbers speak for themselves. Manning is probably the best regular season quarterback in NFL history, and he has a Super Bowl ring to go along with his incredible statistics. […]

Luck, Manning ready to renew ties in Indianapolis

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer The resumes of Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning are strikingly similar. Their fathers both played in the NFL, they both left their home state to attend college, finished as Heisman Trophy runners-up and were chosen No. 1 overall by Colts owner Jim Irsay. Heck, they even wound up as Pro Bowl teammates in February. So, as the...

Colts, Broncos, Luck, Manning

Exactly... Those four words will forever be debated against each other. Did the Indianapolis Colts do the wrong thing by getting rid of Peyton Manning? Is Andrew Luck going to be as good as Manning? Those questions are real, but are amplified because the Colts and Broncos play each other this upcoming Monday night. The fact of the matter is that Manning is a great quarterback. He is easily one

Even while defending Peyton Manning, former Colts general manager Bill Polian couldn’t resist an opportunity to slight the Patriots.

Irsay had referenced the quarterback’s lone Super Bowl ring, compared to Tom Brady‘s...

Todd Helton Defends Peyton Manning

No one messes with Todd Helton's man...ning. Tuesday, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA Today that, basically, he doesn't regret getting rid of quarterback Peyton Manning two years ago after drafting Andrew Luck.

Peyton Manning Bowl: Brutally Honest Preview of Colts vs Broncos

What a shame that the Peyton Manning Bowl is so under-publicized! Wow this Indianapolis Colts versus Denver Broncos game on Sunday night is completely under-the-radar. It’s a shame they can’t generate more buzz for such a “sleeper” and overlooked contest. Obviously, you know I’m joking. If not…to quote the obese Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons, “since you are unfamiliar...

Colts try to pick up pieces after latest stumble

The Colts have to regroup quickly with unbeaten Denver coming to town next weekend, and that's just the way they seem to like it.
