this is indeed good news. everyone knows that peyton can't perform if he is pressured by a good pass rush.

this is good news. i wonder what this is tied to? sick of game? money grab?

I thought it he might of been mad about the Freeney deal and might just be clammering for extra cash, but it sounds serious

From here on out the Colts are on the decline.

He doesn't deserve to have his name spelled correctly.

This is sweet. I love it !
People may appreciate more than ever why a competant LT is such an important ingredient to a successful NFL offense.
I've read very mixed reviews about the rook OLT Tony Ugoh, who happens to be a local native who went to Westfield HS before selecting Arkansas. If he is somehow who the Colts go with to protect Peyton's butt, Mario should really have an opportunity for a good day (actually 2 good days I guess).

While there obviously is going to be a drop off in talent, Tarik is easily a top 10 maybe even top 3 LT, I wouldnt expect a sack bonaza in Indy. They obviously have a system in place and have very successful with it. Peyton can perform with defenders around him, no one can hit an open WR with a defender hanging off of them.

But yeah - this is a good thing for the rest of the division. Seems like a pass rush is the way to win (as opposed to trying to out score).

That's really it. What do the Colts do about it? We've seen over the past 5 years how hard it is to find a LT if you don't have one and it's not like the Colts will be drafting up in that "LT zone" of the draft where the elite prospects get taken. Even with a post Super Bowl collapse they'll be drafting in the middle at worst I think.

If he really is gone then they're going to have a hard time finding his replacement. They can get a player to play the position but replacing a guy like this is tough to do.

I bet he comes back before the end of training camp. I bet he just doesn't want to go to camp. They'll talk him out of retirement a couple of weeks before the start of the season and he's back in the starting lineup in week one.

I'll be surprised if he actually does retire. Even if he doesn't I want to beat the Colts at their best. As the old saying goes "You've got to beat the best to be the best".

Personally I don't think your average fan will notice much of a difference. The Colts' coaches are smart enough to plan for extra protection on the blind side, and Manning is consistently the hardest QB to sack each year. Whether it's double teams or zone blocking or whatever, I don't think this is going to turn the Colts into an also-ran by any means.

I agree.

And really I think it stems back to who they have behind center. The colts weren't om the 'teens' last year in sacks allowed because of Glenn. Thats a product of the whole offense working in synch, and the guy who is supposed to provide the rythm and pulse of the offense is sill there taking snaps last time I checked....
