As a Broncos fan, I would, too. It'd be like getting two bye weeks, and it'd mean we'd only have to face one of Houston/New England on our way to the Super Bowl. If Indy had known Peyton would be this good, they should have... done exactly what they did. Don't let the record fool you- this is a bad Colts team. There's no way they're winning any titles in the next couple of years, so Manning would have been wasting his last good years on a team going nowhereNever double-down on a bad prediction. Anyway, you're completely ignoring the fact that the Colts could have used the #1 pick to surround Manning with multiple impact players. If you subtract Luck and add Manning plus a couple extra blue-chip players, then the Colts are easily a 12 win team this year -- and absolutely a title contender this year and beyond.
