Broncos 3-3, Colts 3-3. Hmmm.

No one else is comparing them, so we will: 

The Colts, who made a controversial decision to release Payton Manning, "the greatest regular season quarterback in history," last year, are 3-3.

The Broncos, who brilliantly outbid several other competitors for Manning's services, are also 3-3. 

(So, by the way, are the Miami Dolphins. The Seahawks, 49ers, and Arizona Cardinals, other losers in the Manning sweepstakes, are 4-3, 5-2, and 4-3, respectively.)

We weren't shocked at Manning's slow start, as indicated by our piece days after he was signed.

Nor are we shocked that, even at 3-3, he and the Broncos are in the running in the AFC West, "the new NFC West." 

And, of course, there are many other positions on all these teams.

Still, it's striking that, at least so far, there appears to be more to winning in the NFL than signing up a star quarterback, running a few 7 on 7 drills, and slinging the ball around the field. 

The Broncos are on line for, at best, a weak playoff entrance and an early exit, for a year or two, while the Colts are already "up" to mediocre, and have positioned themselves well for the next 10-15 years or more.

I thought that this was somewhat of a quality website that didn't allow just anybody to spout off about stuff that they have no clue about. But this article proved me wrong. I believe gfoss59 to be rather inept if he believes that Denver and Indianapolis are equal because of their records. Denver has lost three games to teams with a combined record of 18-4, while Indianapolis lost to Jacksonville, New York Jets and Chicago for a combined record of 10-12.

Ms M, thanks for your remarks.

Didn't say they were "equal."

Indeed, I'd much rather have the Colts for the next 10 years than the Broncos.

By the way, you seem to have joined Covers solely for the purpose of making one comment...

We are flattered by your sincere and transparent interest. ;-)
