Default Colts pick up Brandstater

Adam_Schefter Colts see something Broncos didn't: they claimed former Broncos QB Tom Brandstater on waivers. He will compete to backup Peyton Manning.

Disappointed to see Schefter make such a weak statement. The Colts have weak depth behind Manning and brought in Brandstater for nothing to see if he's a potential upgrade. Denver and Indy may see the same thing.

Wasn't Schefter the person who kept saying something along the lines of "Brandstater may end up being the long term solution at QB for Denver...." or something like that? Maybe I'm getting him confused with another reporter. But if he was they reporter saying that about Brandstater, it may explain his "Colts see something...." comment.

I'll bet Brandstater makes the Indy roster. He's no-where in the same galaxy as Manning in talent and experience obviously, but he does have the same basic body, is tall, has a good arm and according to McDaniels, is very coachable and smart. Sorge is a stick with a noodle arm. Indy is looking to replace him, and Branstater is as good a candidate as the Colts have had in camp in a while.

So I guess 30 teams passed on claiming him before the Colts did, so maybe he didn't generate that much interest.

The one thing I read that made sense to me involving Brandstrater...was that he had reached his max potential...meaning he wasn't going to get any better than he already was. This supposedly out of Broncos camp. Maybe he was decent...but, if that's the case...he was never going to be a great starter. Good for Indy. They got their next Sorgi.

You guys are missing the entire point. This is part of the diabolical plan of McGenius. Tommy B and McD are colluding to bring down the mighty Colts.

At the end of training camp, Peyton will have a mysterious "fall" in the locker room separating his shoulder. Later on, in the playoffs, he willl accidentally miss a long snap that sails back into the end zone and is recovered by the Broncos.

It's all part of the master plan...

Not sure if this was a dig or not given the alluded comparison followed by "...", but there's definitely a difference in required reps from the best QB in the league to Kyle Orton. Causes a trickle down effect where the ratio would probably be most fair if Indy were running 12 QBs in camp and Denver gave every rep to KO.

I am happy for Tom. The Colts have done such a bad job finding a back-up QB. Lucky for the Colts that Manning never gets hurt. The Colts are such a bad team without Peyton.

Two statements. One statement makes a claim, the following refutes the validity of the preceding.

Bravo.

What do you know? You know how to comprehend what you read, which apparently is a rare commodity here.

Also, in the few reg season snaps a QB has taken while Manning has been in town have been dominated by Jim Sorgi... who has a 90 QB rating... better than any Broncos QB in any given season since Plummer 2005 and a stellar 6 TDs to 1 INT.
