Add to that, having a head coach who was way over his head and only got his job at the request of the former head coach, and then you have the Colts last year. To sum it up, let's hope Brees stay's upright.
I was thinking along the lines, and correct me if I'm wrong because I really didn't follow the Manning situation that close, that Indy was trying to release/not sign Peyton so as to avoid paying him a huge chunk of change in his contract, something like $55 million? Drew's deal looked to me like they worked it out to avoid a situation like that ... one good thing about the Indy situation, Detroit's got 'em on the schedule, .

At a podium alongside owner Jim Irsay, who cut the injured star Wednesday rather than pay a whopping $28 million bonus due this week, Manning was by turns wistful, nostalgic -- he got choked up while praising the Colts' equipment managers -- and forward-looking.

The Colts were unable to reach a restructured contract with Manning that would have kept the franchise from having to pay a $28 million roster bonus that was due Thursday.
