The incessant talk about Peyton Manning is nauseating

If the Colts truly believed it was better for their team to draft an Andrew Luck or a Robert Griffin III, than what sense does it make for the Chiefs to pursue him? Manning is clearly a HOF-quality QB. You can't replace that in a rookie, no matter how good the rookie (which begs the point, if you could, then what would be the point in signing Manning - just go get a rookie). Ok, sure, the Colts suspect they can get 15 years out of Luck as opposed to 2, 3, or 4 years out of Manning. But what purpose does it serve the Chiefs to have Manning for 2, maybe 3 years? It's not certain Manning is even close to the player he was prior to the injury. IF he is, then maybe he'd make sense IF he were capable of playing 3 years, at a minimum. 1 or 2 years doesn't do anything for this team. The Chiefs aren't a championship-calibre team just by adding Manning (hell, Manning's teams were rarely championship calibre - they were 2 time AFC Champions and 1time Super Bowl Champion over a 12-yr career). If it makes sense for the Colts to forego a HOF-quality QB in search of a player capable of manning them for a long time, then that reasoning applies just as well to the Chiefs. Manning goes to a championship-ready team, and it ain't the Chiefs.
