After news broke on Twitter today that the Indianapolis Colts would be cutting ties with Peyton Manning, I channeled my inner Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Data (as played by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen): Captain. The Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning will part ways tomorrow.

Load photon torpedoes!
Lock on target!
Commander Worf: The Twitter timeline and lists have been destroyed Captain.
Okay, okay, maybe not “explode” but sometimes when a sports story breaks, it seems like everyone has an opinion. OY!
But I’m the captain (still channeling my inner-Picard). My opinion is the only one that matters!
That means two tweets of the night:
One is a practical, “makes-sense” kind of tweet:
Problem for AZ, NYJ, SF, MIA, SEA, WASH, etc. is fans won't understand or forgive if they don't go after Peyton—

And the other……..
Justnot 49ers' style to chase a monster free agent... And Peyton is Godzilla.—

Any tweet that calls Peyton “Godzilla” is okay by me.
