re: NFL Week 10: BEAR DOWN (and FOLES)
Colts weren't winning another championship with Peyton. We weren't good enough, his contract was too big, and we desperately need to completely rebuild. We did, in a single year. That move completely worked out and you need to take risks as an organization if you ever want to maintain success. It was the right time for the Colts to move on, even though Peyton is still amazing.
And yes, in the second year of his career Luck is looking a lot like Peyton did early on in his career. he's on another level than all the other young QBs and didn't need to rely on the read option to do great things last year unlike the rest of his peers.
