The Indianapolis Colts yesterday announced that the team would be releasing star quarterback Peyton Manning. Team owner Jim Irsay confirmed that they were retiring Manning's No. 18 jersey.
Manning, however, vowed he will remain active. He became a free agent Wednesday afternoon.
The news got us thinking two things: Where is Manning going to wind up? And, now that his jersey is retired, who is the best quarterback to ever wear the Colts jersey—Manning or good 'ol Johnny Unitas.
We realize the sensitivity to this matter, considering the great divide between the Baltimore Colts and the Indianapolis Colts, but it's worth thinking about.
With that in mind, we went to Robbie's 1st Base yesterday to ask the experts what they thought of the situation.
The owners and employees of Robbie's 1st Base are the stars of the upcoming Ball Boys reality show, airing later this month on ABC. Think Pawn Stars meets a sports memorabilia shop. You can watch the trailer here.
The show focuses on the Lutherville-based business with the added bonus of colorful banter between the father and son owners and the store's employees as they rant and yell about—you guessed it—sports.
In a rare instance, both Robbie Davis Sr. and Robbie Davis Jr. agreed on the Manning situation, but we want to hear from you. Take a moment to answer our poll question and express your opinion in the comments section below.
"Senior" and "Junior," as they're called on the show, both think Manning should wind up in Washington, D.C. with the Redskins. The Washington Post offers three reasons for and three reasons against the move.
