This whole thing is stupid.
Luck and Manning have spoken consistently since Peyton was drafted.
Anyway, you want to talk about a real slap in the face, Dungy apparently suggested today that Irsay is creating all this hype on purpose to make it an even bigger game so that Manning won't perform well. I mean is there a bigger back handed slap than that one from your own former coach?
NFL is becoming WWE.
If turner beats out hill and mahinmi in camp then fine, but odds of that happening are slim.
This all would've been prevented had Jim not said anything or kept it generic.
As much as I rag on Polian he did something right he kept Jim on a muzzle...
If we want to make comments out as shots, I think you can take this one as a shot at the Indianapolis Colts, and it shows really how disconnected Reggie is from Indiana now. I'm going to get a lot of **** for this, too,
Yeah, I mean it's fine that apparently Paul has been a Broncos fan his whole life, but as an athlete who's other home team is playing the Broncos, this week, in a very unordinary (is that even a word? Spell check doesn't think so) circumstance, tweeting a picture of you swagging out in your Broncos gear is probably not the best thing to show off to your mostly Indiana Pacers fan followers. The fans that idolize you.
Oh well. I can already tell this week is going to be tough to bare. Friends not being pissed off if we lose, and happy if Peyton dominates. Arguing for days, because in my mind, it's still an NFL game that the Colts need to win, a home game at that.
Just saying I want Peyton to win because he doesn't have much time left, and Luck and the Colts have years is not a great argument.
You can't predict the future. You can't stop key injuries or fluke plays from happening. It's the NFL. Nothing is guaranteed. I'm a Colts fan. I want a win Sunday night, and if Peyton kicks our asses and we lose, you bet your *** I'm going to be doing nothing in the realm of smiling or being happy for Peyton.
I love him, but he's a freaking DENVER BRONCO. F THE BRONCOS. They are the enemy Sunday night for God's sake! No one would be happy if the Jets stormed in and whooped us on national TV, why is this so different (I know, I know, it's Peyton) but in my idiotic mind, the best thing to do is root for Peyton to have a good game, and the boys with horseshoes win.
Sorry for the rant.

The media still would have found a way to make stories out of nothing to generate buzz for one of the most anticipated Sunday night football games in a while.
Irsay just threw the media a soft ball and they hit that baby 500 feet out of the park.

That would be one thing but like you said Irsay threw them a soft ball.. he could've easily avoided it now you have Pagano commenting about Irsay's comments when he really shouldn't be forced to be involved here. I mean Manning said he wasn't going to comment on it.. that's smart.
Whoever does the Colts PR sucks at not containing Jimbo if its possible.
The only thing I am not looking forward for Sunday is watching Thomas having a party at the expense of Toler. Really hope the latter has a monster game and prove me wrong but I just can't see it. Too risky a game that dude has.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
Wouldn't they put Davis on Thomas, and Toller on Decker?
Some days I wish Irsay would shut up and be an owner seen and not heard. He knew what he was doing because he cannot be naive enough to think the media would not blow this up.
Now our team and coaches have to deal with this unnecessary distraction. Yes, questions would still be asked because its Peyton, but not about Irsay crappping on the era that actually made his team relevant, built him that nice stadium and got him an amazing deal on it.
Polian was a pain, but at least he kept Irsay quiet for the most part.
Actually Roaming Gnome built LOS, and the taxpayers, and Irsay, and Peyton Manning by his popularity.
After awhile this Peyton Manning built Lucas Oil gets a little old. Next we'll be seeing the blind claim Peyton healed them and I can't wait for the piece of toast that has the miracle image of Peyton's face burnt on it.
Side note: So who built the fieldhouse? Was it Reggie, was it Larry Bird the coach?

With all the changes made since Peyton left, he doesn't have much to do with the Colts today. He's created a second legacy for himself in Denver. When he retires, he'll be remembered as both a Colt and Bronco. Not like Joe Montana a Chief or Michael Jordan a Wizard.
Once the game is over, all this media nonsense will not be talked about again and everyone will move on completely.
I honestly think we are going to win this game. Just call it a hunch or craziness or whatever, but I think Luck and Peyton are both going to have huge games, but I think we will win late. Maybe a Vinatieri field goal. I think Luck throws for 3+ TDs.
I'm going to start the score predictions. Luck is allowed to throw the ball around the field and we play some clock ball to limit Peyton's possessions. Colts win on last minute TD drive

Do you think we're gonna blitz a lot? I really hope not. At all. I don't think we are much effective at it and also Peyton probably will see it miles away (cause we like to telegraph our plays on both ends ) and dumb it off to a checkdown or someone else that Harvey will supposedly be covering.

I think Colts 35
I don't have a reason as to why I think this though
At the very least I don't see this as a blow out.
