Would you rather face a gimpy Peyton Manning or Kerry Collins???

Tough choice. I'd pick Dan O, but oh well...

They were due for some bad luck. They pay starters abscond worry with back ups and it really has never bit them in the ass. They honestly draft horribly and get away with it cause of 18. They were due, IMO

Default Re: Colts bring Kerry Collins out of retirement

Could just be they're implementing an insurance policy. But either way, it's a good sign that at the very least, they will not be playing a completely healthy, well-practiced Peyton Manning.

I feel like they are very concerned about Peyton now, but I honestly cannot imagine #18 letting his consecutive games streak end unless he's in a coma in week 1

Even if he does play, it's evident now that he will not be at 100% recovered, and he sure won't be 100% practiced and atuned to his receivers.

Default Re: Colts bring Kerry Collins out of retirement

This actually makes a lot of sense for the Colts. Think about it: Manning will likely only miss week 1, week 2 at the most. But given their options at quarterback with their current roster, why not get a guy who has marginal experience against the Texans. Thankfully the change in scheme will help here.

I personally think it's a testament to how much this Texan team scares the Colts that they're not comfortable going into week 1 without bringing in someone like Collins.

The guy has two neck surgeries in a 15 month span and the Colts, after watching their back-up QB's flounder and their owner subsquently tweet that there are worries about Peyton starting, go out and sign a veteran QB and we are "kidding ourselves" for entertaining the idea that he doesn't start?

I'd contend you're kidding yourself for thinking we're kidding ourselves.

Default Re: Colts bring Kerry Collins out of retirement

I agree with nero. Manning, for all his greatness, is still human. Two neck surgeries in 15 months is what it is, and even he has his limitations.

Signing Collins is indicative of their concerns at QB right now. And I'd much rather face Colllins than a gimpy Manning.

Oh man, imagine the hatred this team would instantly get if they just so happened to aggravate Manning's injury so bad that he misses the year. The Texans take out the NFL's golden boy.

Default Re: Colts bring Kerry Collins out of retirement

I fully expect to see Manning out there and in better shape than they're letting on. I think all the Collins signing shows is that they know they have shit for backups and the reality of Manning possibly going down is stronger than it's ever been. I hope Wade brings the house and puts Peyton on his ass early and often. Not saying hurt the guy, but rattle his cage and let's see that Peyton pout. Worrying about his neck will only help get that pout going.

This sounds like a desperation move to me. Glad I didn't draft any Colts for my fantasy team this year.
