I was reading about Peyton Manning and the Colts situation. In one year the Colts organization cleaned up a mess that was not there in the first place. Then I thought a little about the situation he's in and realized he's more than likely on his way out of the Colts building. I remember Jeff Fishers little Colts jersey stint at the fundraiser for Nashville's Rocketown. Then I realized Sam Bradford has little to no competition for his job, which is what I firmly believe was our problem in the first place. He came into an organization the future and was paid a hefty paycheck he has not earned. Yeah, he had a great rookie year, but that rookie year was overshadowed by his awful 2nd year. It's obvious, he needs competition. Releasing Thad Lewis was the biggest mistake of the 2011 football season. We eliminate his competition and have some unproven veteran to be his backup, which was not a good move.
So I'm here to tell you all Peyton Manning should be on Jeff Fishers bucket list. I know it's a long shot, but trading or releasing some players not deserving of huge paychecks, to get a guy like Peyton Manning to finish his career as a Ram would be wishful thinking, but I think someone like him would help Bradford better himself as a player and a leader and rally his team. Peyton Manning was obviously the CORE of the Colts and they are destroying it over an unproven Andrew Luck, who could for all we know end up a David Carr. Lets give Bradford something to worry about and be a successful team, while we help him become a better player. Peyton may be a little expensive, but he's still has some good years.
I'd like to see this kind of Bradford for our team(look at the video below), get him fired up, make him worry about his starting job, have him step it up, don't spoil the guy anymore. Give him a good backup or something to worry about.
