Don't get me wrong, I'm strongly against the 18-game season. But not for the same reasons Peyton is: Peyton Manning doesn't want a reduction in offseason workouts | ProFootballTalk.com Specifically, here's what I don't like (emphasis added): In other words, the whole league should maneuver itself around what the Colts want? Apparently, the first question that should be asked when an issue arises is, "How will this affect the Colts?" I mean honestly. Remember in the '80s when Buddy Ryan and the Bears started using the 4-6 defense and obliterating everyone? For one season, that is, until the rest of the league figured out a way to beat it. I get the feeling that if it had been Polian and the Colts, they would've complained to the league office that the other teams were making it harder for them to compete by realigning their offenses. Sheesh. Is it just me?
