Just humor me for a minute. Peyton Manning is in his 14th season and up until this year, has been the most durable QB, not named Favre. He still plays at an elite level, and could play for another 5 or so years. Just for comparisons sake, here are the ages/year a few other QBs played till (and at an elite level). Brett Favre (19 NFL seasons, age 41) Dan Marino (17 NFL seasons, age 38) John Elway (16 NFL seasons, age 37) Manning turned 35 in March, so he *may* be able to play at a high level for another 4 or so years, give or take 1. I'd even argue that you have a better chance of getting 4 more years of a "great" Peyton Manning, than Andrew Luck being the next "great" QB. So if the Colts get the #1 pick do you think they would take Luck or possibly trade with another team, get multiple #1 picks and possibly have a shot at Manning getting 1 more before he retires.
