    If true, bad news for the Colts, which makes it great news for the rest of the league. Thanks for the link.

    Everytime they get weaker without anyone getting hurt, it's a good deal for all of us ;)

    I hate the Colts.
    Not enough bad things can happen to them.
    I resent the way they kicked our arses in the second half last year...even though it was our fault!:mad:

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    Even though Glenn is an outstanding lineman, I think too much is being made. They still have one of the best offenses in the NFL.

    Sure they do. But every hit makes them not AS good and makes it that much less likely that they'll win the AFC.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    You don't think left tackle is a key position? That a pro-bowl left tackle could make a difference in pass protection, a big enough difference to give a QB time to get the ball away?

    Interesting philosophy. Assuming you truly believe this and are not simply nay-saying in order to be contrary, do you think the OLine in general has any effect at all on how good an offense can be? Or is it just the left tackle where it doesn't make a difference if the starter is a multi-year pro-bowler or a rookie?

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    Especially when they have a rookie and a 2nd year 6th round pick to replace him. It either means more pressure on Peytey's blind side or extra help from others . . . either way, this is good news if it holds.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    One positive for the Colts: they should get some cap relief. They still have to cover Glenn's prior signing bonuses on the cap, but his $4.5 mil salary will go away.

    Maybe they can sign some defensive help. They're going to need some help on that side of the ball.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    You just don't go out and replace a LT like him. No matter how good a rookie is, it will be a step down this year.

    I hate it when bad things happen to the Colts.:rocker:

    The bad news for them - there's nothing out there to sign.

    Re: Glenn Retiring

    The Colts got where they are on offense because of consistency in personnel. Peyton has had this guy covering his behind HIS ENTIRE CAREER. There will be some growing pains and Manning will feel more pressure this season, and the offense will suffer.

    I think this is beginning of the end for Peyton Manning's "prime". Once the personnel he's relied on for years starts to go, his so-called "dominance" will fade into oblivion.

    :mad: If true, this is huge. We would have either a rookie or a 2nd year 6th round draft pick protecting Peytons blindside. Aaarrrgghhh!!!!

    Doesn't make sense though. Tarik's been quoted as saying he's looking forward to mentoring Ugoh this year, plus he's an unrestricted FA next year. One would think he'd play one more year and then hang 'em up. In the end though, I guess he's gotta do whats right for him and his family.

    Sucks for us Colt's fans though.:mad:

    Howard Mudd's one of the best in the business. He'll have the line ready with or without Tarik.

    As for your comments on Peyton, I say, don't hold your breath.

    this is what happens when you throw your offensive line under the bus too many times and don't give them quality gifts at the end of the year for protecting him so well

    Didn't he bring his entire OLine to Hawaii one year when he went? Maybe it wasn't him, but I thought it was.

    I think he is not nearly as good as ESPN thinks he is, but he is a hard guy to dislike personally.

    BTW, how come this isn't up at ESPN.COM or anywhere else except that Indy Star rag? Half the time they have their heads up their butts. Maybe he isn't retiring at all?

    Any confirmation of this from the Colts fans? Is it true, or just a rumor?
