Twitter campaign to save Colts

Two Twitter campaigns in support of Reggie Wayne, Robert Mathis and Peyton Manning caught Phil B’s eye:

Mike Varick, like so many other Colts fans, doesn’t want to see QB Peyton Manning leave the Colts. Owner Jim Irsay has to decide by March 8 about shelling out a $28 million team option to the NFL’s only four-time MVP, or let the franchise QB become an unrestricted free agent.

Scott McKnight would like nothing more than to see soon-to-be unrestricted free agents DE Robert Mathis and WR Reggie Wayne re-sign with the team. The team leaders would have no problem landing a contract elsewhere in free agency.

Rather than sit around and wait to see what happens next in the offseason, the two Colts fans decided to do something pro-active with the creation of Twitter accounts to summon support. Consider them tweet petitions. Varick is also set up on Facebook.

I happen to follow both of those guys and enjoyed watching the mayhem yesterday.  Keep it up Blue Believers!

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.
