The Colts still have a shot at the first pick in next years draft. And, Irsay was interviewed before Thursday's game and he was OK with having Peyton and Andrew as Colts.
And, between NFL Today, ESPN, the NFL Network, newspapers and online sports sites, I've heard and read a lot about Peyton taking young Andrew under his wing, so to speak. Words like teacher and pupil, craftsman and apprentice, tutor and understudy, expert and beginner were bandied about.
It was like a movie I once saw- "Take the football from my hand, young one, take it now. And, throw, my son, throw!".
Comparisons were made with Green Bay, and people far and wide weighed in with their opinions.
Most Colt fans want Peyton to return as QB, perhaps with Andrew Luck. Some restructuring of Peyton's pricey contract may be necessary to have both men, but Irsay was confident that it could be done. Most TV sportscasters agree that after all that Peyton has done for the Colts, they can't just dump him. But, they also agree that getting Luck is a chance the Colts can't pass up.
So, will Andrew grow and thrive under Peyton's tutelage? Since he is regarded as the best college QB to come along since Peyton, some people think it would be unfair for the Colts to draft him, to have two best QBs in a row.
But, such is life, we shall see what we shall see.
Lively late Angie.
