We knew this was coming. The Colts will part ways with the face of their franchise for the last fourteen years, their iconic star Peyton Manning.
These two, Peyton Manning and Jim Irsay, created a football dynasty that owned the midwest for 13 years. But alpha males co-exist uneasily.
My continuing belief is that the Colts and Manning will part. The Colts know Andrew Luck is their future; moving on with him is a reasonable and understandable business decision. Organizations need to evolve.
The longest offseason in major professional sports has begun. While we wait for the next edition of "As Peyton Turns," let's examine a high-profile position group -- wide receiver -- that offers a substantial amount of talent.

What the sports commentator establishment ignores is that Tebow's religious fervor is not important to the fans. Fans could care less whether he proudly flaunts his piety instead of concealing it.
Luck is ready to play right now, and if Manning's neck passes scrutiny, his trade value will never be as high again as this offseason. The following three teams are the best potential suitors.
Barely a few games into the season, there was less attention paid to the best team than given to the the team that could end up as the worst. The reason, of course, is that the discussion revolves around a player thought to be once-in-a-generation: Andrew Luck.
