    It will be if they trade Peyton (which they should consider, IMO).

    What would Peyton be worth in a trade? More than Herschel and that was enough to build a Super Bowl winner.

    Depends on how other teams feel about his injury. If enough teams are willing to take the risk, the Colts could get a bidding war going.

    The problem is that most teams needing a qb don't have much to trade. What could you get from a Jacksonville or Miami (maybe Denver?)? There's a lot of mediocre teams with young, franchise qb's right now.

    Simple.

    Draft picks. That's what they Cowboys got for Herschel. That's what Ditka traded to get Ricky Williams. You don't need to trade players and if you did the picks would also have to be part of the bargain.

    New York is the team mentioned most frequently as a possible contender for Peyton. They could trade Sanchez for picks and package those with more picks for Manning.

    Good. They should have fired him when he benched his starters at 14-0. Ridiculous.

    Yes, and the GM in Minnesota was fired for setting the team back several years as well as Ditka. I don't think any GM is going to offer anything like that. They aren't that stupid. Besides, they all realize it's going to be very difficult for the Colts to pay Peyton with Luck's first pick money sitting on the bench. That's a little different than Rodgers who didn't go quite as high, so they can go after him in free agency without mortgaging their future.

    I knew when the Polians were fired it wouldn't be long for JC, my old teammates I was told lost their jobs too. Pete Metzelaars and Frank Reich.

    There is zero talk of that here. The team is going through some heavy rebuilding and like Ponder and Webb. They might bring in a veteran, but it will be on the cheap.
