Peyton Manning enjoyed respite from Colts facility

MANNING MOORE AP

Peyton Manning’s revealing interview with Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star wasn’t the only conversation Manning had with the media on Monday evening.

Manning also spoke with Judy Battista of the New York Times, in an article that ran in Wednesday’s paper.

The focus of the article is Peyton’s trip to San Francisco and appreciation of his brother Eli’s play with the Giants. Peyton argues that Eli isn’t necessarily playing any better this year than normal because he’s always been played so well.

The entire piece is worth checking out, but the most interesting portions were those that shed light on Peyton’s future.

“There’s a reason Eli and [Giants offensive coordinator Kevin] Gilbride have been together for so long, because Gilbride has called good plays and Eli has played well. Me and Tom Moore earned the right to stay together. It’s a compliment to Eli and Gilbride. If you call good plays and it’s working, they shouldn’t want to fire you,” Manning said.

Moore was gently pushed aside in Indianapolis after the 2010 season. Manning says no one in the Colts building knows who is going to be fired next.

Manning’s message to Kravitz was rather clear. Just in case we missed it, he sounded many of the same themes to the New York Times.

“It’s not the kind of environment you like to be in. It was fun to get out of town,” Manning said.

    Peyton’s out of there. It’s only a question of where. He’s not going to back off the guaranteed money date. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see him simply released. No team is eating that contract AND giving up picks.

    Indy is rebuilding … and Peyton is relocating.

  2. waxedagain says: Jan 25, 2012 11:20 AM

    It sounds to me that Manning doth protest too much. He was coddled his whole career, and now that the team built around Manning has collapsed without him, he expects little or nothing to change.

  3. weepingjebus says: Jan 25, 2012 11:24 AM

    Peyton and the Colts burning the same bridge from both ends. The Jets disintegrating while also having to hiss and scurry away like Gollum whenever they encounter Giants players in the same building. The Patriots in the Super Bowl.

    That’s it, I’m buying a lottery ticket.

  4. jacunn2000 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:28 AM

    Peyton Manning is a pretty classy guy. If he say’s it is a pretty negative environment, the it must be a lot worse. AND, I am pretty sure he is done with the Colts.

  5. ingraven says: Jan 25, 2012 11:29 AM

    Colts just hurry up and cut him so he just head down to “Wade County”…

  6. cfrs15 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:30 AM

    “Moore, of course, was fired by the Colts.”

    Way to make stuff up. Moore voluntarily left the organization in 2010.

    Google is hard.

    The glaring error in this report is that the Colts didn’t fire Tom Moore! He retired, and they still brought him back for a couple years. Clyde Christiansen has been OC in indy for a few years, and he is one of the coaches who hasn’t been fired yet.

    —————————

    Actually you’re wrong – Moore and Howard Mudd left because of disagreements with the front office about handling their pension plans. Moore became a “consultant” in his last year because of that. Moore was basically forced out the door.

  11. rolltide510 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:37 AM

    Didn’t Tom Moore retire because he was older then dirt?

  12. chris6523 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:37 AM

    As I recall, Moore had been doing the retirement talk for some time, then left after the ’10 season, at the age of 70 something. However, he did work for the Jets this past season. Perhaps he “resigned” at the behest of others in the Colts organization. But I would think that would have been either Caldwell’s or Polian’s decision if that were the case. At any rate, I don’t think Moore ever suggested in any way that he was pushed out when he left.

    It certainly looks like Peyton is ready to be done with the Colts. He probably should ask for his release or rework his contract in order to grease the skids for a trade.

  13. goindy2006 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:38 AM

    I say Redskins! They will pay him 100 million I bet!

  14. chadmurdigan says: Jan 25, 2012 11:38 AM

    Peyton needs to shut up. His whining is getting really old, and he’s going to cut into his marketability for his goofy TV advertisements if he’s not careful. He’s turning into another Favre.

  15. blackdb says: Jan 25, 2012 11:38 AM

    blah,blah,blah.. when teams go 2 and 14 people get fired. When they go 14-2 and to the super bowl with the same coaches they do not. It is funny that Larry Coyer became a bad hire and a bad fit in 2012 and the same people talked him up big time as one of the main reasons they went to the super bowl in 2010. Welcome to the real NFL Peyton you just realized that you are expendable too. Really is sad.

  16. tylerncom says: Jan 25, 2012 11:41 AM

    This franchise owes Manning for so many years of winning and happiness. Im not a fan, but I hope they do the right thing and not jerk him around too much. If they do, they will sully their reputation for many years to come.

    I admire the man who has given Brady a run for his money for so long. If he becomes a free agent I hope he has the chance to, and goes to the Dolphins. The following would be the best fits in order

    Dolphins A
    Cardinals B
    Redskins C-
    Jets F- Career Killer

    __________________________________
    Yep, Favre syndrome.
    It’s never classy to whine about the way the team makes decisions and he’s done plenty especially recently starting with Moore’s leaving.

    Notice that Irsay and even Polian have done nothing but praise HIM though.

    Now is the time for him to retire. #1, no one will blame him for not wanting to risk his health in a serious way. #2- he doesn’t take the chance of going elsewhere and not playing well (which is what I believe would happen if he left Indy because no other team would be silly enough to build an entire team around a QB like Indy did with him) #3 he would go out on “top” with a bunch of people worshipping him (which he loves, make no mistake about his “big fish/ small pond affinity) because they all believe that he WOULD have made the ’11 Colts a playoff team and he IS the only reason they win (but strangely NEVEr the reason they lose). It’s perfect timing, bub. Retire on top.

    Wow, a dude liked being away from work, in Indianapolis, and enjoyed being in San Fransisco, CA, in the middle of winter?

    I’m starting to think you guys are losing your sense of reality.

  20. dcfan4life says: Jan 25, 2012 11:43 AM

    This is also a reaction to the Polians getting fired. He was shocked at those decisions. Then they fire his easy going do whatever you want Peyton coach, who he thrived under (since he literally ran the show). Of course he is mad, and he knows he will not be a Colt next season. If he plays at all that is…

  21. das14 says: Jan 25, 2012 11:43 AM

    So the Irsay family is going to be known in history as sneaking an entire football team out of town in the middle of the night. Then thanks to Peyton they start to become a real franchise and now they are planning to get rid of Peyton for a guy that could be either the next Peyton or the next Jamarcus Russell, wow good job Colts. That is the Irsay legacy i guess, maybe we turn it into a new term. Like crap you just pulled an Irsay, when ever you do something wrong. At least Irsay jr continued in his fathers foot steps.

    …the opening credits have just begin!

  26. patsfiend says: Jan 25, 2012 11:48 AM

    This is the #1 story of the off season. Where is Peyton going to end up? Can he still play? I’d love to see him throw on the Grogan style neck protector and spend a couple years on another team lighting it up. I’d especially like the “old gunslinger” to someday come back to Indy with his new team, and hand Luck and the Colts a painful, last-minute loss. I’d also love to see just one more Manning versus Brady matchup in prime time.

    As much as I’ve despised him over the years, at this point I really just wish him well and hope he’s recovered enough to safely play. He’s a class act.

  27. tombradysbaby says: Jan 25, 2012 11:49 AM

    Not to the Jets….

    all based on the assumption of POTENTIAL in one college kid.

    unreal. unless Peyton never plays again, the colts will regret this.

    I wonder if the DOLT’s fans screaming for Luck are happy…..

  29. thebiblestudent says: Jan 25, 2012 11:51 AM

  30. menentj says: Jan 25, 2012 11:57 AM

    ….and who is Tom Moore with? the NY Jets.

    I, as a Dolfan, would hate it if he joined the Rexes.

    Look for the Ravens in making a play for Peyton.

  31. krebzy1 says: Jan 25, 2012 12:00 PM

    The colts owe manning NOTHING. He’s made plenty of money for the job he’s done over the years. People act like they should just pay up 28 million and if he’s incapable of playing oh well, he deserves it anyway just because of how good he was, and because he’s a nice guy. Doesn’t work that way where I work.

  32. flfan says: Jan 25, 2012 12:01 PM

    whether Moore voluntarily retired or not is irrelevant. coaches get fired, they move on or they retire. it’s a fact of life in the nfl. peyton has been lucky to have been able to play his whold career with teh same coaches and basically the same players. now he has to deal with what most other players have to deal with on a regualar basis. if’s he’s the best ever, like the media keeps saying then it shouldn’t be a problem for him to do what other players have to regualarly do.

  33. slaydog103 says: Jan 25, 2012 12:03 PM

    Man the media likes to bring up a bunch of bull. Where exactly did Peyton say he’s out of Indy and where has Irsay said he won’t pay Peyton?

  34. slaydog103 says: Jan 25, 2012 12:06 PM

    Actually you’re wrong – Moore and Howard Mudd left because of disagreements with the front office about handling their pension plans. Moore became a “consultant” in his last year because of that. Moore was basically forced out the door.

    Moore left because of Chris Polian and his egotistical self. Chris Polian was the one running the old coaches and staff out the door. He was a douche and his father was doing everything he could to hide it. Not everything was peachy and fuzzy before in the Colts org.

  35. dsfrantz says: Jan 25, 2012 12:06 PM

    if you read the comments in their original context, they are much lighter than PFT implies. . .

    of course Manning’s disappointed that long time friends & coaches are getting pink slips, but there doesn’t seem to be any dissent there.

    if my memory serves me, this is the same website that reported that Manning was having a falling out with the Polians. . . but now that he actually speaks he’s greatly disappointed with the decision?

    & Tom More was forced into retirement. Yes, he “retired”, but at the behest of Chris Polian.

  36. waxthat says: Jan 25, 2012 12:09 PM

    Barring his health…the best move would be for him to make another trip to San Francisco. A healthy Peyton and that defense, wow.

  37. killxswitch says: Jan 25, 2012 12:16 PM

    This article is such bull. It clearly implies that Moore was fired recently and that Manning is upset about it. Not true at all. He was forced out by the Polians in 2009. You know, the father-son GM team that was just fired, in 2012.

    Clyde Christensen has been the OC of the Colts for 3 years. Moore worked as a “consultant” for the Colts for a time, then went to work for the Jets. The org tried to frame it as a retirement but he said in an interview he didn’t want to retire and that he was having fun coaching still.

    The Colts org is chaotic enough right now on its own, you don’t need to be dishonest to sell the story.

  38. skinscc says: Jan 25, 2012 12:19 PM

    I think this is the most glaring error from the article.

    For a guy that just made a 26 mil salary for doing nothing, Peyton has become quite the whiner lately.

  42. sbrowncreative says: Jan 25, 2012 12:37 PM

    How the hell anyone on here could compare Manning with Favre is beyond me. The man is getting treated like dirt by a Colts team that owes him everything, if that’s not obvious from last year’s performance. What is it about people that they want to tear down the good folks in this game do quickly. He got hurt. He deserves their loyalty and he’s not getting it. They’re scumbags.

  43. biglebronski says: Jan 25, 2012 12:39 PM

    I began thinking in November that Peyton might end up with the Jets and back together with Tom Moore. But now I think Arizona would be the best fit, if Peyton is healthy of course.

    Ken Whisenhunt is dearly missing the crafty veteran QB he had in Kurt Warner, and Larry Fitz would have to be a tempting option at receiver.

    Who knows if he’s even going to be able to play though? Nobody, I’m pretty sure.

  44. waxedagain says: Jan 25, 2012 12:44 PM

    The facts are as follows. Moore and Mudd ‘retired’ for personal financial concerns related to their NFL pension.

    “INDIANAPOLIS — Longtime Colts assistant coaches Tom Moore and Howard Mudd are returning from retirement.

    Coach Jim Caldwell announced on Friday that Moore, the offensive coordinator, and Mudd, the offensive line coach, would be back with the team after saying they would retire because of changes to the NFL pension plan.

    Both feared they would lose money if they did not retire under the old rules, and were still worried, even after owner Jim Irsay promised not to shortchange them.”

    —————————————————-
    Peyton Manning made $26 million dollars because he had made billions upon billions for that organization over the previous 13 years. How quickly people forget.

    And by doing “nothing,” Peyton showed Irsay and the rest of us what a piece of crap that team is without it’s star QB. I’d imagine the education Irsay received in 2011 (time to clean house) was well worth the $26 million.

  46. 6ball says: Jan 25, 2012 12:57 PM

    Maybe I’m not very bright, but i always thought of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning being inducted into the HoF the same year, as players who spent the whole careers with one team.

  47. horatio69 says: Jan 25, 2012 12:58 PM

    Peyton should be happy the Colts are showing him the door. He’s got a great opportunity ahead of him with a new team. If it’s a cruddy atmosphear be glad you’re getting a fresh start elsewhere. Focus on your health Peyton then find a team with the Colts on their schedule and “Smoke ‘Em” !!!

  52. 7to10for6allday says: Jan 25, 2012 1:11 PM

    Idiots, he’s not whining. He was asked the questions and he answered honestly. Class act all the way! Hope he plays next season!

  53. waxedagain says: Jan 25, 2012 1:18 PM

    For over a decade, Colt fans sat back and watched one man bandaid the warts of a poorly constructed team. They say there is no ‘I’ in TEAM, but Manning has been the obvious center of this team for over a decade. Now he is publicly whining over losing his control of this team. I wonder what his father Archie has to say about his son’s insistence to play football while he has a life threatening injury. One hit and Peyton could be paralyzed for life. What team will accept the liability for medically clearing Peyton to play?

  54. deepbacksidedig says: Jan 25, 2012 1:18 PM

    San Fransisco would be my choice.
    Shot at SB, won’t get killed, good personnel.
    Any indication the niners are interested?

    Arizona worth consideration.Fitz and a dome home.

    Jets are a mess, Miami not ready. Plus, i doubt he wants head to head with TB. But NY offers high profile, lots of money, center stage, center of the world attitude.

  55. commandstaffcollege says: Jan 25, 2012 1:19 PM

    The Colts did not fire Moore. He retired.

  56. commandstaffcollege says: Jan 25, 2012 1:23 PM

    Indianapolis Colts

    From the Associated Press and reported by NFL.com: “…assistant head coach Clyde Christensen will become the new offensive coordinator and Pete Metzelaars will take over as offensive line coach following the retirements of Tom Moore and Howard Mudd.”

    ____________

    Exactly.

    What Manning experienced this year was the perfect storm – an injury, his team was horrible, and a potential super-star QB is up for grabs.

    If any of these things didn’t happen, he’d still be sitting pretty at the head of the class. But instead, he’s not going to get picked for the team in gym, and he has to man up and deal with it.

    I wouldn’t expect any team to pass on a potential franchise QB just to give an aging, injured player a huge chunk of change. It makes no sense. Either way, you’re making a risky move (who knows, Luck may not be all that and a bag of chips), but you can’t blame the Colts if they take a pass on Manning.

  58. jg725 says: Jan 25, 2012 1:25 PM

    I really have to laugh at anyone who says “the colts owe peyton manning so much” – give me a break – colts have paid him a TON of money during his career – he in turn has been one of the best qb’s ever – I would say they are even – yes????

  59. wikidpissah says: Jan 25, 2012 1:59 PM

    “Me and Tom Moore earned the right to stay together. ”

    What he earned, and received was $26 million per year. He didn’t earn the right to decide who would and how they would run the organization. This is what happens when you coddle stars.

    The Archie and Peyton act is getting old. Archie refusing to have Eli play in San Diego to announcing that Peyton could share a team with Luck. And now Peyton whining his way out of Indy.

    They could both learn from the youngest member of the family.

  60. glac1 says: Jan 25, 2012 2:04 PM

    He should have won another ring or two so he could be considered one of the best of all time. Dungy’s resting down the stretch cost them at least one title.

    I love all these tools here who think Peyton is going to come to their respective team and play lights out.

    1. Good chance he will never play again and who knows how effective he will be IF he does return.

    2. Amazing how people forget Peyton’s post season performances.

  63. animalkindness says: Jan 25, 2012 2:12 PM

    There is retirement and then there is “retirement”, read between the lines. They were fired, you don’t retire and then go and work for another team.

  64. diehardtwinsfan says: Jan 25, 2012 2:16 PM

    Somewhere along the line, people are reading way too much into what is being said here. Everything Peyton says here is basically true (and not really a surprise), and this type of micro-analyzing is going on quite a bit. I fail to see how it is whining at all. He was asked a question and truthfully answered it. Had he said (no comment) to all of this, I suspect you’d still be posting articles saying “Peyton is unhappy.”

    Here’s the thing that bothers me most about all of this. There is no hard fast rule that says the Colts cannot have both Peyton and Luck on the same roster. I know that neither one may necessarily like it, but quite frankly, neither one have a say. Luck would do well to spend a year or two under Peyton anyways, just look at how that helped Aaron Rogers. That would also allow the Colts to trade away Payton when the contract becomes a bit more reasonable.

  65. plum13sec says: Jan 25, 2012 3:10 PM

    Hes not going to the cardinals, the redskins, or the 49ers. If hes going anywhere its to the jets who will absorb his contract, or else he retires. & it will be in a trade, no way are they letting him walk. that is absurd.

    I hate the way this is turning out, andrew luck has more pressure on his shoulders than anyone else in the last 20 years and he hasnt even been chosen by a team yet.

    Colts can’t trade Manning. Trading him would cause the Colts to take a huge salary cap hit. Peyton would get cut and choose a sucker team to take him.

    People saying Peyton is “whining” and comparing to Favre need to think before they type. This information is coming from an interview. He didn’t start blatting about anything. An interview is when somebody asks another person questions about something. Apparently, Irsay’s comments and Peyton’s comments about “staying a Colt” don’t mean anything to the lot of AFC East fans on this board. “If Peyton is healthy, he stays”, and “I would like to stay a Colt” are the opposite of “Peyton doesn’t like it there! Too much hostility and drama! He’d fit right in with my JETS!!!” Gimme a friggin’ break. Either he starts under center in Colts blue next season or he retires.

    Also, until Peyton holds a press conference where he cries on ESPN, THEN comes back TWICE, do NOT compare him to Brett “Faver”.

    Indianapolis Colts

    From the Associated Press and reported by NFL.com: “…assistant head coach Clyde Christensen will become the new offensive coordinator and Pete Metzelaars will take over as offensive line coach following the retirements of Tom Moore and Howard Mudd.”

    Right, commandstaffcollege– glad somebody does their homework. Typical liberal media, spewing $#it in their articles, twisting and twisting until they have a story.

    ok, usually peyton is right with everything football related BUT this time i got to ask… exactly how many games have u watched gilbride call?!?! “HES TERRIBLE! hes been terrible for years almost 3-4 of basic play called my family can call out before the snap. i DESPISE the shotgun draw because of him. his playbook i think consists of 10 plays and when he calls a sweep with brandon jacobs on 3-2 or 3. i cringe!

    1 SF
    2 Ariz
    Longshots
    Jets (cap issues)
    Miami (wrong coach)
    Additions:
    Dallas and Denver

    I could see Jones giving him ridiculous money, the billionaire who only wants one thing in life, and
    needs other people to get it for him.

    Denver fans would get over Tebowmania for
    this guy.

    As far as what I think about the mess?
    I think it is disgraceful, and not smart for Irsay to not be talking to the man.
    Dude has a thriving franchise, new building, respected tradition because of Manning, period.

    Just be a man, tell him what you are thinking, but to leave him out there, without clue?
    Weak or sneaky, stupid, and an unnecessary disrespect.
