A needlessly arcane look at the Colts and the draft
Wednesday, March 16, 2011
We all know Peyton Manning is incredibly loyal and all that, but let's just go nuts for a second and think about the worst-case scenario for the Colts. What if the new CBA forbids the franchise tag and Manning wakes up and looks around and thinks my backs are Joe Addai and Donnie Brown, my tackles are basically turnstiles and my defense will never be anything more than a speed bump? Why don't I just sign for more money and get a few more Super Bowls?
Let's say he signs elsewhere. What would the Colts do? My guess would be drafting Christian Ponder, re-designing the offense into the old West Coast, crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.
