    Luck, Manning or try your luck with both?

    Indy Colts fan here wondering what the community thinks about our dilemma.

    A) Keep Manning and trade the pick. 0-12 team is 7-5 with Manning. Throw in some key free agents and the players received by trading the #1 pick to build a contender now.

    B) Release Manning, pick Luck. Manning is old. Luck is the safest star QB pick since, well, Manning. Look to the future and enjoy another decade of winning.

    C) Keep them both. Luck learns from one of the greatest and takes over the team 2-3 years down the line when Manning retires.


    What do ya think?

    we gonna get him and trade him for 3 or 4 first round picks. Shore up our defense. We cant have 2 star qb's and cant afford to pay luck to sit on the bench when he has no shot of winning a starting spot from manning!!!

    I don't think they should keep them both. I would see how many draft picks/players they can get by trading the number one pick. If they can't get enough then I would draft Luck and look to trade Manning. At most you might be able to keep them together for a year, but beyond that would be asking for trouble. It still remains to be seen if Manning is going to be completely healthy. If not, he may get released outright.

    Luck isnt a guaranteed to be good. Sure he may look like a sure thing, But look at brady who went in the late rounds and is possibly the greatest ever. The college game is alot different than the pro game. How can u be so sure that luck will be as calm and cool under pressure when the likes or ray lewis are running full speed at him.

    This is a no brainer. If manning is healthy enough to play 3-4 more years you have to snap take manning over luck. They should pick luck 1st and try to trade him for some picks and players to build up a team to make a run for it with manning at the helm.

    If the colts really want a QB but want him to learn under manning then they should take RG3. Luck wants to play straight away. RG3 has shown unreal talent. Without him baylor arent a winning team. RG3 seems like the person who wouldnt mind sitting and learning from manning.

    It wouldnt suprise me if the colts do something similar to what san diego did when they drafted eli manning. That is colts to draft luck and then get someone to draft RG3 and trade lucky for RG3 along with other things of course whether it be picks or players.

    For those of you who have mentioned trading Manning, nobody wants a 34 yr old quarterback coming off a year long injury who makes $28 million per season, even if he is Peyton Manning. The only trade value that the Colts have here is Mr. Luck, or the #1 overall pick if they make a move before the draft.

    Keep em both. Manning has the resume to push for the #1 spot as the greatest QB to ever play. Luck is one of the most hyped pick since Manning. While it is expected in today's NFL that rookie QB's need to produce immediately, it is always better to have them learn first. The best QB in the NFL today is Rodgers, and he sat behind Favre for 3-4 years. QB's such as Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, and Sam Bradford have not been consistent enough to judge as being great since their rookie season(s). Keep em both, and hopefully Luck is as good as advertised.

    I would stick with Manning. He has proven to be good, and I think he has at least a few good years left.

    Luck has not proven anything in the pros yet.
