The 08 Theory is Viable

What you\'re really saying is sacrifice this years draft for a QB -- mostly because his last name is Manning -- when our offense is CLEARLY (sorry whodat) not the problem.

They need to do it for the receivers , because catching a ball should not be Capital punishment .

The 08 Theory is Viable

Eli has the same work ethic that has made Peyton the best quarterback in the NFL.
Peyton Manning is not the best QB in the league. He has the most talent, but when his team is down, he tries to be a hero and forces throws. Sometimes this works (the comeback against Tampa) and sometimes he\'ll throw 3 picks and comepletely crush his teams chances for winning (Playoffs against New England this year, playoffs against the Jets last year, heck even this years Probowl).

Peyton Manning plays with way too much ego. He too often tries to carry his team on his back instead of playing smart, humble football.

Which is why Tom Brady is the best QB in the league, no contest. No, he doesn\'t have the skills or numbers of Peyton Manning. He doesn\'t care about numbers. All he cares about is that he does what he has to do to help his team win. Peyton on the other hand, seems too often to try to win FOR his team.

When the Pats are down, Tom Brady isn\'t looking to make a spectacular throw to a double covered Marvin Harrison 50 yards downfield. He\'s looking for a wide open Troy Brown running a 12 yard out that will set Vinatieri up for the game winning field goal. He plays humble. He tries to win the game without caring who gets the credit for the win.

Whenever I see the Colts play, if Peyton throws a pick, the next series he\'ll force a throw into coverage, as if to try to make up for his mistake, or to redeem himself. To win the Superbowl you have to win 3 or 4 games in a row against good football teams, and until Peyton learns that it\'s okay if you threw for 150 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT as long as you won, he will NEVER take the Colts to the promised land

Nice use of CLEARLY Saintfan. Good job. I haven\'t received my royalties check though. I assume it\'s in the mail?
