A 36 year old Joe Montana gets off the plane in Kansas City on his way to Arrowhead Stadium. In his brief scenario i will explain why i think our beloved Peyton may make a similar journey.
So by now all of you are aware of the Peyton vs Luck issue and this is another post on this topic. Now this scenario relies on a huge if and I say "HUGE IF" that Peyton comes back and can play ball. Peyton comes back at most he has 3 to 4 years left. Now let me say this its my belief that we have seen the last of Peyton and he retires this year but I do wonder what would happen if he came back.
With injuries rampant through the Chiefs locker room this season is no barometer to how good that team is. Chiefs have solid defense, good wide receiving core, and a top five back when healthy. This team is a pass rusher and Quarterback away from dominating their division. I belive that that Scott Pioli Chiefs GM has the guts to risk the trade and they sure have the CAP room for Peyton's huge price tag. So what do i think Peyton's worth to the chiefs. How bout this years Second round pick and next years first and fourth, with say a conditional second or third based on how deep they go in the playoffs.
So why these picks? I think Kansas City takes on a huge risk with Peyton and his neck and they know it. So Kansas City with the top ten pick this year takes a DE to rush the passer which they need to win games this year. They can afford to give up the second rounder now that the two big holes are filled. First and Fourth in next year are not worth as much next year if you believe Peyton can come back and play.
Alright now the colts lift a huge cap burden, potential PR nightmare, and moral disaster with this move. We get Mr. Luck with the first round pick then two top second rounders for the defense. Next year we have two number one picks to help an acclimated Luck or defense if needed.
We will see what is to come in the future but what we all know is that this is a defining moment in colts history. As horrid as this season has been i am excited for the things to come.
