    if so he at least had a good long career and was able to win a super bowl before something like this happened.

    Million dollar question,

    With Manning's career apparently on the downside, would you possibly look toward the future and invest in a first round QB next season, similar to the Packers with Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers?

    If they were in a position to draft Luck, they'd be silly not to do so.

    Absolutely. I thought they should already have had the wheels in motion starting with this draft, and a lot of Colts Homers feel the same way.

    All's fair in NFL player contracts, but is it fair game to wonder if Peyton saw this coming (or knew something was off/wrong) at the time he signed his contract extension in late July? I'm not crucifying him...just wondering.

    You think he knew the nerves in his neck weren't regenerating as quickly as they should be? If so, he is really in tune with his body.

    The Colts knew about his May surgery before they signed that contract too.

    I just wonder if he could have had the surgery earlier in the offseason. I'm not a Colts fan, so I haven't watched this closely, but in hindsight, could he possibly have done this sooner? Did the lockout and the inability of management to talk with players affect how/when it was scheduled at all?

    Never really cared for Manning but wow does this suck. I found it ironic that many brushed the off season surgery and thought it would be business as usual for Payton. Now you have to wonder if it would be smart for him ever to take a snap again. If I were Payton I would seriously think about retiring. He has to be financially set for a number of lifetimes. Why risk greater injury, especially to the neck area, to play 4+ more seasons?

    Could this in the end turn well for the Colts? Lets assume that Manning is out for the season but returns to form next year. The Colts are looking at a 6ish win season. That would result in a higher draft pick and a chance to select a difference maker in the 1st round. It may be like when the Steelers had a poor season and were able to select Big Ben earlier than they usually drafted.

    Sorry, I don't mean to put words in your mouth. Obviously I didn't get what you were saying. I don't know how Manning could have known in July that he wouldn't be healed in September.

    It could, but really this year was their year. Next year the Colts are likely looking at the departure of Wayne and/or Mathis. That will be hard to offset, even with a higher draft pick. Plus, the Polians have seemed to lost their touch when it comes to drafting talent.

    With the Bengals looking at another crappy year, and now this, I guess I'll jump back on the Packers bandwagon this year.

    Why do you keep calling him Payton?
