This was part of the Colts thought process. Even if he is healthy. Stay with Peyton for 2 or 3 more years or try to set yourself up for long term success with Luck.
The goal is always to win a super bowl. Not doing so would suck and defeat the primary goal for bringing Manning in. However, the other goals are to stay competitive, continue to grow and develop a fairly young team and to try and set us up for success after Manning. Low draft picks will bite, but they haven't exactly hurt other good teams, like the Patriots and Falcons...
