Default Has a single player ever meant more to a team that manning?

Has any single player meant more to a team or had a team based around them more than peyton Manning?

The colts are TERRIBLE without him.

If Green bay, or New england, etc.... lost rodgers, brady, etc...... they might not be SB contenders........ but to see a team sink this low over one player is crazy.

Elway meant as much. We went from Super Bowl winner to 6-10 when he retired.

prolly not

maybe the Broncos with Elway in the 80s
Falcons did a turn around the year Vick broke his leg

the Colts show though how overrated Polian is
He is considered a good GM yet his recent drafting has been trash

Go farther back around 1988 when we were 8-4 and Elway went down. Finished 8-8 with Reeves' M and M debacle.

The Colts aren't as good as the Broncos team that Elway left. Not even close.

Oh no doubt. From very early on Elway was the Broncos and probably accounted for 6-8 wins a year.

Do you mean Decker? Decker isn't a rookie, and is the only reason Orton looked half decent today (emphasis on the word 'half').

Orton.

Without him managing games for Denver the past three years, Denver turns the ball over every time and loses every game. Its like Obama's stimulus "saving" jobs.

That doesn't make him a rookie. You know that right?

Sure, but it was the loss of Elway that really killed them. That team was done from the first game of the season without him. We all knew it.

To be fair, this Colts team wasn't going to win 12 games with or without Manning.

Nope. They looked like a 9-7 or 10-6 team to me. Now they look like a 3-13 team.

They went 11-5 with Matt Cassel of all people. Pretty sure they'd be better off than the Colts.

Elway!

Those Super Bowls in the 80's. He was a one man show.

The Dolphins fell apart without Marino and the Bills did with Kelly. You have to plan to replace the franchise
