    ... without Peyton Manning for 2-3 months if not the entire season?

    I'm thinking it is going to be a long season for Indianapolis.

    If Manning is out as long as it sounds like he'll be, I think they will be lucky to go 8-8. They have been TOO reliant on him for years, without a backup they can be confident in and without a strong running game or defense.

    This of course is the talk of the town here in Indy.

    Meh, we shall see after the game with Houston on Sunday how Kerry Collins does.

    Who knows, the Packers won the Super Bowl last year without Brett Favre!

    The Rams won with Kurt Warner, an Arena League QB before playing for the Rams.

    So ANYTHING is possible! :eusa_pray:

    I'd be surprised if the Colts won more than 6 games without Manning.

    No football team is more reliant on one player than Indianapolis.

    Well, here in Tampa, I think I heard a big sigh of relief when they said Manning was going to be out 2-3 months since the Bucs play Indianapolis in week four.

    I was on a business trip to Indy a few years back. It was during football season.

    They are crazy about the Colts the same way bammers are crazy about the Crimson Tide

    I hung out in a sports bar on Thursday night - crazy good times...

    That's because we don't have much else for sports here. The Pacers, but they have sucked since Reggie Miller left, though I have high hopes for them this season.

    And of course, us Colts fans are spoiled because we are used to winning.
