WSJ: Awkward in Indy

Jason Gay notes that the situation in Indianapolis has grown bigger than the games the Colts continue to lose:

Peyton the Jet? Peyton the Dolphin? Peyton the Favre, another aging slinger hunting for a last hurrah?

At the core of the debate is an unavoidable truth: Everything ends, even for icons. With Steve Young ready, San Francisco traded Joe Montana. Johnny Unitas wrapped with the Chargers. Green Bay had a sour parting with the Favre, who initially retired and stepped aside for Aaron Rodgers, but then spent the next three seasons with New York and Minnesota on a bizarre revenge fantasy.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
