FanPost

I know I am charging windmills,but . . .


, , , , ,I simply must interject the human/emotional side to the current "suck for Luck" debate. I believe Jim Irsay is a standup guy.  He knows full well he has Peyton Manning to thank profusely for making him a billionaire. Peyton Manning built Lucas Oil Stadium. Peyton Manning elevated Indy to elite NFL franchise level. Peyton Manning made Sundays a whole helluva lotta fun for folks in Indiana and all around the world.

I view Jim Irsay as a truly standup guy. I think he finds it impossible to kick the "golden goose" to the curb in favor of a newer model (Andrew Luck).  Provided Peyton can demonstrate that he can return to form and sustain it for the next 3-4 years, trade the 1st overall pick for the mother of all motherloads of draft choices (and elite ones too!) and surround your QUARTERBACK  with the best collection of elite draft selections and free agents humanly possible, and make a glorious run at the next FOUR Lombardis !!  Peyton's successor is still learning how to shave without slitting his throat !

You go home with whomever brung ya !  Andrew Luck will most assuredly be an excellent NFL Quarterback, but  we already have the "Greatest of all Time" .  Let the kid find his niche.  Give Peyton the benefit of our love and appreciation. He is truly the creator of Colts Football as we now know it.  Let the legend play his final few hands. He's earned it!
