I think Peyton Manning is an upstanding individual and an amazing QB...but I've longed for a time to watch the current Colts go a season without him to see just how much it makes or breaks them as a team.

Funny thing about his neck too. Back problems is what caused the third Manning brother to never play college football and thus never make it to the NFL.

Too bad. Manning was one of the smartest QBs to ever play the game. If this is a sign of the end, it is a loss for the sport.

But, at least the Colts might go back to sucking.

there will be no controversy.they'll do with luck the same thing they did with rogers. luck would ride the bench learning the offense until manning retires.

Give me a break. People might've made excuses for Manning, but he never made excuses for himself. He just couldn't break that Pats D. Until he did. I admire Peyton very much, but even I'll admit he tries to do too much in the playoffs. He is not an Elite playoff QB.

We haven't seen the last of him regardless.

Yes. Bill Polian will all of a sudden be a lot dumber. That statue they wheel out for a head coach every week will have to be replaced with a real person. And the volume of the crowd noise they pump through the speakers in that dome will have to be turned down.

I just don't know how he plays anytime soon if there's something wrong with his neck. The key to their whole offense is that stretch play action play where Manning quickly whips his body and head around and gets the ball out.

Well what has Polian dont recently really
I mean he brought in some really good guys several years ago in Freeney, Mathis, Wayne, etc...

But recently I havent been impressed
spent high picks on Addai, that RB from UCONN, that DE from TCU

The receivers I think are more of a product of that offense and Manning than being legit stud talents

I think that team lives and dies with Manning, and that should not be the case if they were stocked full of talent

He doesn't need them at this point. They're still getting opinions from people. All that sounds like they're hoping he doesn't but if things were on track for him to recover, they'd just be waiting for his body to repair itself. That they keep including people in his recovery and getting more opinions means it could just be speculation but it's definitely not unfounded speculation.

Bob's your Information Minister
09-05-2011, 09:46 AM
The Indianapolis Colts have now officially addressed rumors about the halting progress of QB Peyton Manning's neck surgery. It seems his recovery now also includes back problems.

The team released a statement Monday. It reads, in part:

During the last week, the rate of improvement in Peyton's rehabilitation process slowed. Over the weekend Peyton experienced soreness in his back. It was originally thought to be a normal reaction to his rehabilitation regimen. When the soreness persisted, the Colts medical team decided to initiate diagnostic tests and to consult with a number of specialists around the country who have been involved in Peyton's case from the outset. That process continues. As a result of the most recent development the doctors have decided that Peyton will not practice. His participation therefore, in Sunday's game versus Houston will likely be doubtful. We will update his playing status as required by NFL policy as the week goes on.

At the conclusion of the diagnostic process, if there are any new developments in the prognosis which we outlined for Peyton at the start of training camp we will report them. As of now Peyton continues to deal with a complicated neurological recovery, the end date of which is unpredictable.

As was stated at the outset, it serves no useful purpose to speculate about hypothetical outcomes. When and if there are concrete medical facts to report we will do so.

The NFL's only four-time MVP, Manning has started 227 consecutive games (including playoffs), second only to Brett Favre (321) among quarterbacks.

If Manning can't play at Houston in Week 1, the Colts will have to decide between starting recently signed veteran Kerry Collins or third-year player Curtis Painter, who had two forgettable regular-season appearances in his rookie year.

While I hate Peyton Manning, I have to say it sucks about his neck. It could turn into something that forces him to retire.

:Broncos:

As a person who has permanent cervical nerve damage that a fusion didn't resolve I figured there is no way Payton can play at all this year and I bet that he is forced to retire over it.

If he has nerve damage for any length of time he is going to experience muscle atrophy, chronic pain, limited motion.

If he already has had 2 fusions and then has a third he will never be the same.

I wish him luck, it truly sucks.

I have no idea about the timing of the deal in relation to his surgery.

My best guess is that both Manning and the Colts listened to the Dr's who said he would have a 6-8 week window of recovery, with I am sure a small % of the fusion not taking the pressure off the nerve, and they trusted the Dr and moved ahead.

He had the same procedure last year so maybe that fed into the thinking he would recover the same way and they would be playing the SB at home this year. Maybe they were too optimistic for their own good. Look at this place during mCd's 1st year, no one wanted to see the signs that mCd could fail, now Indy may not have wanted to think that Mannings operation would fail?

I was told the same things 3 and a half years ago, 6-8 week recovery would be back at work and move on with my life but I am still waiting. I have heard from PT's that it can take 7 or more years for nerves to respond if ever. If Manning is in anywhere near the same boat as I am he won't be able to play this year if ever.

I just looked it up myself, cause I wasn't sure either:

He had the surgery May 23rd.
He signed the contract on July 31st, a full week after the lockout was lifted, which means a week for the doctors to give him the reacharound....and 9 weeks after his surgery.

That would suck that they would get Luck to replace manning. They might win 1 game without melonhead.

Welp, apparently, UNOFFICIALLY, he's out for the year. Just got an email from FootballGuys.com, and this is what they said:
Hi Folks,

The latest on Colts QB Peyton Manning. Jake Query, a radio host on WNDE in
Indianapolis is reporting that sources are telling him that Peyton Manning
is out for the year.

Query posted this on his twitter feed today:

"What I (Query) said: A source I consider reliable told me he is out for the
season. I do believe that the actual diagnosis is still being determined"

Query then followed that with: "I (Query) was also told the 3rd procedure has
taken place, either Sun or Monday."

Understand that this is not official by any stretch. This is a radio host in
Indianapolis (that I don't know much about) saying this is what his sources
are telling him.

It certainly fits with the worse case scenarios we've been envisioning but it
should be stressed that we have no facts or words from the Colts to back this up.
It's also worth noting that the Colts and Bill Polian are going to be the absolute
last people on earth to tell us this.

My gut feel is that I'd positively let someone else take the chance on Manning at
just about any price right now. I know some are saying now is the time to scoop
him up for pennies. I'm not one of those guys.

This is perhaps not related in any way shape or form, but I think it's worth
understanding that Peyton's older brother, Cooper, quit football after it was
discovered he had a congenital spine issue. I'm NOT saying Peyton has the same
issue. But I am saying Cooper's issue is something he thinks about as he plans
his future. It would be impossible for it not to be considered for him.

I told you guys he was done for a least this year and likely will have to retire.

I can't believe they would go in and fuse another disk so soon after his last fusion.

I would have to defer to Dr Broncostein but my guess is that they are going to shut him down for the year and the procedure he had Sunday was a realitive simple Steriod Epidural. He would probably have 2 -3 of those over the next couple months then they hope the nerve responds with rest and time.

I can't believe he would have the nerve cut or some other radical procedure that could hose his mobiltity and cause escalating issues with his back worse than just nerve damage.

I don't see where continuing to fuse disks above/and or below the last fusion would help the nerve at that level that is causing him trouble.

He is going to have to deal with it and prepare to live life off the football field.

I just looked it up myself, cause I wasn't sure either:

He had the surgery May 23rd.
He signed the contract on July 31st, a full week after the lockout was lifted, which means a week for the doctors to give him the reacharound....and 9 weeks after his surgery.

I don't know why they would give a guy coming off 2 disk fusions over the last 2 years a new big fat contract either. Maybe it was a going away present?

It is odd how the Colts always find big money to wrap up their guys and then there are teams like duh bears who don't want to pay for anything, though I think Briggs is way out of line.

Hundreds of miles away, in rural Mississippi, a man perks up from his work bench. Something on the garage radio had caught his ear.

“Something something quarterback facing possible season-ending neck surgery.” Hmmm. Is it already 1? He turns off the Jim Rome show and and scratches his graying stubble. He glances at a scuffed up football sitting at the end of his work bench, dust collecting on it, and the old tire swing. Next to the football finds a family picture. Himself and his two daughters; they grow up so fast. It’s hard being a father when you spend half of the year away from home.

He puts the picture back into his wallet and shoves it into his Wranglers. He grips the football firmly, with familiarity. This is where he belongs. He throws a tight spiral right through the old tire swing and shakes the cobwebs out of his shoulder. Indianapolis sounds pretty fun.

this is easy to explain. they paid pumpkin head Manning a boatload of cash so that he'd quietly sit out this year. this neck business is a cover story. now, the indyCrapolis Colts can go 0-16 and draft Luck. Luck is a surefire HOF'er and will win seventy gazillion superbowls in the NFL. heck, they might even put him in the HOF his rookie year! i know this to be true because a) John Elway went to Stanford, and b) i read it on the OM. after Luck is drafted, pumpkin head announces he's magically cured and continues to start every game for the rest of his career. the lesson for the rest of the league? easy... this is how you avoid a QB controversy.

we all knew he was eventually going to have neck problems. you can't ask a human neck to support a pumpkin-sized head forever. it was going to break sooner or later.

i do like the way he tricked Irsay into paying him a boatload of money on his new contract right before they found out how serious his neck problem is. i hope alot of it is guaranteed.

Hilarious!Hilarious! That is one huge melon to be sure. He's going to have to go and cry himself to sleep in his humongous ****ing pillow.

Manning could come back and play multiple years. If the Colts get the #1 overall, wouldn't shock me if Luck headed back to college.
