The Colts Authority:
Here's today's open thread. Items up for discussion:
My brother Luke commented that the half-time ceremony on Sunday reminded him of the end of Return of the Jedi. That got me thinking.
I specifically want to hear from people who think the Colts should draft Luck AND keep Manning. I want to know two things. First, explain how long you think that situation should go on. Second, explain why you think that's a good idea...what it accomplishes. How does it make the Colts better in the short run? I'm on record saying it's the only mistake that can be made and that it makes absolutely no sense. I'd like to hear from the other side.
We've talked about fast rebuilds before, but something to consider is that the Colts won't be in "salary cap hell". This is usually the factor that slows down rebuilds. If the Colts do cut Manning, they'll likely clear out Wayne, Saturday, and Brackett at least with little to know cap damage. The only...

Bill Belichick isn’t shedding any tears over a Colts showdown without Peyton Manning. That’s just how it goes.
During a conference call with the media a short time ago, the Patriots coach said he wouldn’t necessarily miss not seeing the Colts quarterback on the opposing sideline come Sunday, just as he didn’t miss Michael Vick last week.
That’s life in the NFL. Just look...
