Actually, the way he probably feels (the way I feel), is that he's sick hearing about how Peyton has just "broken this team record held by Johnny U" or "passed that milestone from the Baltimore Colts". 95% of people in Baltimore have a firm distinction in their mind, nay, their worldview, between the Baltimore Colts and the Indianapolis Irsays who unfortunately have co-opted our good name and heritage. Manning, as good a QB as he is (and I like the guy), hasen't ever broken ANY of Johnny's franchise records, because that franchise ceased to exist in 1984. Period.
