The real question is will the Vikes draft Luck with the #1 pick having reached massively on Ponder last year already, remember this is the Vikes and good draft decisions are not allowed when considering your answer...

/Vent.

Colts would be stupid not to take Luck imo. Whether it be to trade or keep him, remember that Peyton would also have ridiculous trade value should he come back and they decide it's time to move on and rebuild(and really Peyton looks to be the reason they need to rebuild by carrying that sorry ass roster to where they've been).

I'm not sure they do. My initial reaction was, "Yes, they should take Luck and if Peyton can still play, Luck learns for a few years and then assumes the throne when King Manning abdicates." But... I just have to say that I don't know enough about Peyton's injury. If he can come back and play for even three more years, I don't think they draft Luck. They'll still be trying to win the Super Bowl. They'd be wanting other pieces. I don't think a team with a closing window drafts for after the window shuts; they draft to win, and a #1 overall choice is too valuable to that team to sit it on the bench. It sounds like a great idea to have Manning tutor Luck, but the reality it that's not the way to win a Super Bowl anytime soon. There are, and will be, other great quarterbacks drafted in the coming years. Responding to this thread is making me realize how ridiculous the Luck hype is right now.

There are some rumors swirling around Coltsland that Manning is done. Not for the year, for his career. Nothing at all confirmed, just rumor, but there's zero reason to believe anything the Colts org says about his health. When you lie about injuries for years you make it so you can't dispell rumors, because no one will believe you.

Supposedly during the 2nd procedure the doctors damaged a nerve that can't be repaired and Manning has no shoulder strength anymore.

It seems like everything in this entire situation started off as rumors, so I'm not dismissing anything I hear about it.

That's really unfortunate if true though. He was on pace to own ever record in the books if he could play a few more years. Now he'll be in the Gale Sayers category of "what could have been..."

I always thought Peyton was gonna still play at a high level during his late 30's. Not record setting pace but he was smart enough that even when his arm wasn't dominant anymore his accuracy would still be tops. Hate that his career could possibly end.


It'd just be weird for his career to end and last I saw him he was throwing the ball around fine at the end of the season.

I'm still hoping that he'll be able to come back. And if that's the case, my first choice would be to get a King's ransome for 1st overall.

But if that rumor is correct then they shouldn't even pick up the phone, just take Luck.

I have a sneaking suspicion that we can just remove the hypothetical part from the title of this thread in a few short months (unless you're a Colts fan. In that case it'll be some very long months). The Colts should just go ahead and select Luck even if Manning comes back. Give him a year or two behind Manning and then go on to dominate for another decade in the AFCS. This is a no-brainer in my opinion.

IF the Colts have the number one pick they would be insane NOT to pick Andrew Luck.

Look, even if Peyton is healthy, the guy is still 35 years old and obviously won't have much left in the tank regardless (especially considering having a serious neck injury).

Even if you draft him and let him sit behind Manning for a year or so, the Colts have to realize it's high time to draft a future franchise QB and this is the perfect scenario to do so.

I agree. If Manning is out for the year (I'm positive he is) then there's no reason to believe he'll play another 4 or 5 years. 3 max, more likely 2. That's a good stretch of time for Luck to sit in the film room with Manning and learn to break down defenses from the best.

And with the rookie salary cap the team will actually be able to afford it.

It would take a pretty incredible trade offer for me to be ok with the Colts trading down.

Nope, I can't read the future.

I wonder if this is the earliest in a season that the SWDC community consensus nailed both the team and the player at the #1 overall pick.

Well Im picking next year's already. New York Giants and Matt Barkley.

First time ever a team has won the Superbowl and the next year were the worst team in the league.

Also first time ever two brothers have gone from being franchise QBs to being dumped in consecutive years.
