    As for this past season Luck was hurt all year so I give him a pass.

    So which is it stats or wins? People are real selective around here. I think this past season Russell Wilson proved he's more than a "game manager" for the Seahawks. Why should his stats matter if he got the W? I mean if he put up great numbers and the team failed is he a choker? Apparently so.

    I think he's a lot better than people around here are willing to admit. Regardless he's won an SB and his team has consistently made the playoffs in a much tougher division and conference than the Colts with Luck.

    I don't get why Wilson should be punished for maximizing the situation he was fortunate to be in. Some people get a great hand and others don't.

    Precisely ZERO people are saying Russell Wilson isnt good, rather that he is in a much better situation than Luck. That is not up for debate.

    Lol, who has trashed Russel Wilson on this forum?

    Ace brought up why Wilson and Luck weren't compared like Manning and Brady. Well it comes down to two key reasons:

    1) Luck and Wilson have only played each other one time since they are in opposite conferences. OTOH, Manning and Brady initially were playing each other in the AFC East, then they started having all of those big regular season games when they switched divisions. Most importantly, they started having the huge playoff games.

    2) The Seahawks are supremely superior to the Colts in terms of talent. OTOH, the Colts and Pats were both stacked teams during the peak of that rivalry.

    I don't know how many times to say it. The playoffs and Super Bowl are talked about with Peyton and Brady because it's a way to differentiate between two guys who are literally two of the three or so best quarterbacks of all time.

    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    Not sure if this actually comes to pass. I do think he'll own a team at some point though.

    PEYTON MANNING MAY NOT BE AN NFL ANALYST THIS SEASON AFTER ALL
    Posted by Ken Fang on May 2, 2016 11:45

    In the days nearing his final game, the conventional wisdom surrounding Peyton Manning was that once his playing days were over, he would head to a network, most likely CBS and replace Phil Simms as Jim Nantz’s partner. But it seems that isn’t going to be the case. According to Bob Raissman at the New York Daily News, Manning isn’t interested in joining a network for the 2016 season:

    One source went as far as saying Manning, through his representatives, has specifically told the NFL’s TV partners he won’t be yakking into any football microphones when September rolls around.

    It appears that Manning wants to devote time to his business interests and perhaps remain a commercial pitchman (DirecTV, Nationwide, Papa John’s) where he’s free to shoot ads when he wants rather than traveling to a game site every Sunday.

    It’s not to say that Manning won’t join a network down the road. CBS, ESPN, Fox or NBC would be sure to welcome him with open arms either as a studio or game analyst if he decides that he wants to make television as his second career and discuss either college or pro football.

    But for now, it looks like Manning is more willing to spend his retirement on his own schedule rather than being assigned to games and be in a broadcast booth. Maybe he’ll be like David Letterman who has decided to grow a beard and become a recluse in his old age. Only time will tell.

    Not surprising. He doesn't have the personality to be a coach. He has the brain for it, but it would just consume his like entirely too much. I can see him continue to be an adviser like he was in Miami earlier in the year.

    NFL clears Peyton Manning after 7-month HGH investigation


    The NFL has cleared Peyton Manning after a seven-month investigation found no credible evidence he used human growth hormone or violated the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy, the league said Monday.

    Manning and his wife, Ashley, “were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators,” the league said in a statement.

    “Initiated in January, the investigation was led by the NFL's security and legal teams with support from expert consultants and other professionals. The investigation involved witness interviews, a review of relevant records and other materials, online research, and laboratory analysis and review.”

    The investigation stemmed from an Al-Jazeera America report, which secretly recorded a former anti-aging clinic intern named Charlie Sly making allegations against a variety of professional athletes.

    The league continues to investigate four other NFL players named in the report: Green Bay Packers linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and free agent linebacker Mike Neal.

    Last week, the league rejected the NFL Players Association’s assertion that affidavits submitted by those players constituted cooperation. Neal’s interview is expected to be conducted this week, with others to follow.

    “As a former player, Peyton Manning is free to do whatever he believes is in his best interest,” the NFL Players Association said in a statement. “The Union knows that he understands the rights of players under the Collective Bargaining Agreement and would never do anything to hurt or undermine active players in support of those rights.”

    There's a lot more in this article but these were the parts I found interesting

    http://www.indystar.com/story/sports...name/88484580/

    How Peyton Manning got his name

    Archie Manning was in fifth grade. He breathed football, loved it to the core of his being and he didn't want to miss one game of the Drew High School football team.

    But his dad, Buddy Manning, who worked long hours in the farm equipment business in Drew, Miss., just didn't have time to take his son to the away games.

    Archie Manning had a savior. His name was Peyton.

    Uncle Peyton, who lived on a nearby farm, would take time out of his life to haul his nephew to towns surrounding Drew, to sit under the magical and bright lights of Friday night football.

    Uncle Peyton was a guy who carried bourbon around in a flask, taking nips throughout the day. He swore like a sailor.

    But when he took Archie around, he did none of that. Single his entire life, Uncle Peyton said some of his very best times were the ones with Archie at those football games. He didn't want those nights to end so on Saturdays, Peyton could be found milling the streets of Drew buying Archie ice cream at the five-and-dime store. Sometimes, Archie would go to his uncle's farm and chop cotton with Peyton, who gave him $3 a day for his hard work.

    "The two grew close over the years. And there was just something about that name — Peyton — that was melodic and appealed to Archie's ear."

    And that is the story of how legendary NFL star Peyton Manning got his name, after a bourbon-toting, foul-mouthed but caring uncle. It's one of a myriad of tales in the book"The Mannings: The Fall and Rise of a Football Family" by longtime Sports Illustrated writer Lars Anderson.


    The book, which will be released Aug. 23, is not some risque, tell-all tome of the Manning dynasty. It's not a football-heavy playbook, either. It's a book about a family, a love of sports and the ups and downs they faced. The Mannings declined to "actively participate" in the writing of the book, Anderson says in the acknowledgments. But Archie Manning did help Anderson fact-check portions of the book.

    Of the 305 pages, at least 200 focus solely on Archie, his childhood, the suicide of his father and the rise of an Ole Miss hero who could never become a superstar with the New Orleans Saints. The rest of the book is filled with stories of his three sons, Peyton, Eli and Cooper, who was forced to quit playing sports after he was diagnosed with a rare spinal condition at 18.

    While much in the book about Peyton Manning isn't new, there are some stories that only die-hard Peyton fans may have heard.

    Like his first football? It wasn't pigskin. As a tiny guy, Peyton and brother Cooper would rummage through the Saints locker room while their dad was at practice, looking for used athletic tape. They would take the sticky roll and crumple it into a ball, then run onto the field and throw. Here are some other Peyton Manning tidbits revealed in the book.

    That second Super Bowl almost didn't happen

    When Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning's replacement as Colts quarterback, soundly beat Manning in the AFC playoffs in January 2015, Manning almost retired. He had lost 24-13, throwing for 111 yards, compared to Luck's 265. Manning went home to New Orleans to talk to Archie and Olivia, his mom, about retiring. He weighed his options. Of course, he decided not to retire. That retirement wouldn't come until a year later, after he won his second Super Bowl against the Carolina Panthers. Late that night, hours after the 200th and final victory of his NFL career, after the reporters had finally finished with the questions, Manning met up with his family.

    "Peyton didn't say it at this moment, but here, in the warm embrace of his family, the end had finally arrived."

    And then there was one: Football

    Football was his love, but Manning was also a really good basketball and baseball player. He had been a stellar pitcher, but after his sophomore year at Isadore Newman School, he gave up pitching. He wanted to save his arm for football.


    However, during a summer game, his pitching staff depleted, the manager of the team, Billy Fitzgerald, told Manning he needed him to pitch. Manning wouldn't do it. Fitzgerald forced him. Furious, Manning threw his first pitch 10 feet over the batter's head, hitting the top of the backstop fence. On the next pitch, just to be sure Fitzgerald knew where he stood, Manning hit the batter square in his back. Fitzgerald never asked Manning to pitch again.

    When Manning's high school basketball season rolled around, there was a problem. Fitzgerald was the coach. Manning, who had been the first one off the bench as a sophomore, was sure he would now be starting as a junior. But Fitzgerald told Manning that wasn't happening. The two argued for some time.

    "Both agreed it would be in everyone's best interest if Peyton left the team, which he did, ending his basketball career."

    The four quarterback sins

    From the time he could toddle with a football in hand and make a throw, the four quarterback sins were etched into Manning's mind by his dad. These were mistakes Archie Manning believed led to QB failure, mistakes that a polished quarterback should never make. 1. Not being perfectly balanced when receiving snaps from center. 2. Stutter-stepping after receiving a snap. 3. Looking into the backfield when dropping back. 4. Patting the ball before throwing it, disrupting the timing with receivers.

    "By the time Peyton was 17, coaches like (Jim) Mora graded Peyton's drops and throwing mechanics equal to those of elite college quarterbacks."

    Peyton, the Notre Dame superstar

    Manning could have easily been a member of the Irish. Among the colleges that recruited him the heaviest was Notre Dame. On a visit to South Bend, Cooper and Peyton Manning made believe they were playing for the Fighting Irish. Three times, they sprinted down the tunnel from the dressing room and ran out onto the field, imagining the crowd was erupting. They were "giddy."

    But things got serious when Peyton Manning sat down with coach Lou Holtz. Manning took the meeting into his own hands. Question after question flew at Holtz, about the offense, the weight room, the quarterback coach, the wide receivers and running backs, the other recruits.

    "(Holtz had) never been around a more inquisitive high school player than Peyton. The kid's thirsty mind made him even more appealing to Holtz, who promised Peyton immediate playing time."
