    ok, for starters, he's not exactly KING. I think this was a rumor started by Rob Lowe for some reason.

    I hate to see him go, It was a good Brady-manning rivalry. But brady is more consistent, and better overall.

    When is the date that he would get that 20 something million bonus? I don't think he would announce that now, and be a distraction to Eli.

    In my keeper league I traded Peyton for Eli back at the beginning of the season because my team was decimated for this year. It has been a regret every since

    March 8. It's 28 million and he just told the Colts he wasn't going to push back the date according to Adam Schefter. Pay him or cut him basically.

    That is what he should do. Colts are showing no loyalty to him, so why should he help them get picks and hurt the team he goes to? I just hope he goes to a team on the verge (San Fran, Jets, Titans) than a cash grab retirement plan (Redskins).

    They showed a whole lot of loyalty to someone by giving them 90 million when the player was aware of a neck injury and never played this season.

    rule 1. always follow the money. if he's a "Team Player" he'll retire before that date. the dolts could use the cash for the Post Manning transition period. He'll get paid off somehow with a long term personal services contract, piece of the club, front office spot or something...
