It's bound to come up: Who's better, Unitas or Manning?

Talking heads in Indy are calling Peyton Manning the greatest Colt of all-time

March 07, 2012|The Baltimore Sun

You knew it would come up as soon as you heard that the Indianapolis Colts would be releasing star quarterback Peyton Manning and a sportscaster there was calling him the "best player to ever play for the Colts."

More than a few Baltimore Colts fans will beg to differ with him.

So the Johnny Unitas vs. Peyton Manning debate is likely to be re-ignited by today's release of Manning.

And you're sure to hear that Manning is the greatest Colt who ever lived.

One reader e-mailed this morning to offer his two cents about Manning leaving the Colts, and he had little empathy for Indianapolis:

You know what I’d like to say to those in Indianapolis.

OH – BOO HOO… as well [as] a HA-HA!

Let them suffer like we suffered when Irsay yanked our Colts carpet out from underneath us.

And we suffered worse than what they ever will with a silly QB change.

Tough cookies.

Let the crying -- and arguing -- begin.
