The Colts Need a New Man(ning) at QB


Here I am sitting watching the Gators and Canes kickoff the college football season when I see the alert on the bottom line of my TV that says that Andrew Luck is retiring. I was stunned, as I'm sure many other people were. Not only is he retiring, but it's a week before the season starts and we got the update during the Colts preseason game.

All that was really weird to process but at the end of the day, Andrew Luck retired.

So what about the current Colts quarterback situation? They have Jacoby Brissett and Phillip Walker currently. Brissett filled in for Luck back in 2017 when Luck missed the entire year and the Colts ended up going 4-12. That offensive line was not like what it is now and the defense wasn't exactly the 'Steel Curtain' either. Then you have Phillip Walker who went undrafted last year and spent the entire season on the practice squad.

If you're a Colts fan, obviously you are not happy (although you should still respect Andrew Luck enough to understand why he had to step away from the game) but you realize that this Colts team has potential. Jacoby Brissett and Phillip Walker are not the answer at quarterback if you want any sort of chance at making the playoffs.

So what do you do? Do you look at a free agent? Perhaps.

You can also make a trade. How about a trade for Manning...Eli Manning?

It makes loads of sense. He is in the final year of his contract and the Giants are going to move off him anyways, whether it be this season or next, to Daniel Jones, they have an extra second round pick, which might even be too much for a one-year rental, and the biggest thing Eli has is not just loads of experience, but playoff experience.

The Colts defense is solid, the offensive line can protect, he's got weapons at wide receiver, tight end, and running back.

The Colts need a quarterback and Eli Manning seems like the right choice.

How fitting would it be that the Colts get a Manning to end his career in Indianapolis?
