Crushed to see Peyton Manning go but wish him the best in Denver. Hopefully he won’t embarrass himself. Be great but unlikely to see him regain MVP form and have a shot at another Super Bowl.
Delighted, if not star-crossed, to replace him with Andrew Luck, the best college quarterback since Manning. Would be awesome but probably impossible to see him lead the rebuilding Colts to a winning season.
