08:06 AM ET 03.08 | Peyton Manning's impact on the Colts goes well beyond pure statistic. [Team owner] Jim Irsay should thank Manning for increasing the value of the Colts by $233 million. How do we know this? When Manning was drafted by the Colts in 1998 the team was worth $227 million, last among the league's 30 teams and $47 million below the NFL median team value. The Colts are currently worth $1.1 billion, 11th among the league's 32 teams and $64 million above the NFL median. While the typical NFL team increased 263% in value during Manning's 14 years at Indianapolis, the value of the Colts rose 366%. Had the value of the Colts gone up by the league median, the team would now be worth $824 million.

We had a #4 thread every day for a long time, but with #18 it's looking like every thread every day. Hurry up and sign somewhere, Mr. Manning.

Even HE didn't get 4 out of 5 in a day.

But his constant drama and "will he/won't he" made up for it.

if thats the case, then they should have paid him his bonus..

March 8, 2012  08:32 AM ET

So, have the Colts devalued their worth by releasing Manning?

$200 million? Excellent, Smithers. Excellent.

Does Vegas take bets on predictions of team future values, or relative value rankings?

On Wall Street, this is called a "correction".

Peyton has to be worth more than what Rush makes to shoot off his fat mouth.

March 8, 2012  08:48 AM ET

The Ravens should make a run at Peyton, even it means risking losing Flacco.

And wasn't that an excellent "excellent," Smithers?

Excellent post. And your avatar is excellent.

The worth of any team would also go way up if a new stadium is in place as well. Lucas Field is a premiere stadium that adds a lot of value. I don't agree with everything in the article because there is no NFL team that is worth less or close to the amount they were worth in the quoted 1998 time.

Only $824 million? The other owners would be snickering behind Irsay's back.

Agreed, the new stadium adds a ton of value to the franchise
