If the Colts still cut him than that tells me that their team doctors disagree. Like I said in another post, if there's any chance that he's not 100% and all the doctors are not on board, than I'm willing to bet the Colts will have an excuse to let Manning go and start over. It's a tough decision, but this is why a team has its own medical staff.

From the article...

Quote:
Watkins, according to the sources, joined Colts neurosurgeon Dr. Hank Feuer in clearing Manning to play. One source said that Feuer recently told Manning, "If you were my own son, I'd tell (you) to go play."

From what I'm reading though, this is about the fuse taking hold. Has nothing to do with whether the nerve regeneration will let him be effective.

Let it play out. I Payton is cleared to play and the Colts release him, he will be the biggest player in FA history.

But we just have to see. Remember there was not talk of health problems during the offseason he signed his last contract, but as soon as he became the highest paid QB in the history of the game, he went and had his 3rd surgery 3 days after signing it.

Yes, the colts were dumbasses for not making him take the physical, but he knew he was not feeling right and that he required surgery. He kept that from the COLTS so he could get paid.

What going to stop him from doing the same thing to another team? He could pass a physical...but being effective in what he does best is another thing.

Peyton is just as competitive as anyone else, and according to Chris Mortensen, believes he'll be ready by April....

He may be cleared to play, but what about his arm strength returning?

I thought that was still a question mark.

At any rate, PASS.

What if he went to the 49ers? That would be a scary team.

1) why do people assume he'd command 26 mil.
2) He'd make the line better simply because he doesnt hold the ball
3) Our receivers ARENT THAT BAD. Plus, if peyton were to come, receivers would come.

Not saying lets get him, but i just think what you say isnt true

The Colts will rue the day they let Manning walk....

I know it is going to happen, but Manning can easily win another SB or two with the right team. I wish him the best, and hope he beats the ass off the Colts for years to come.

I'm sure he believes that. But he's not the one that has to live with tying up a quarter of a team's salary cap on a player that may not make it on field.

Irsay did an interview today and basically said as much.

If the Colts cut Peyton, everyone is buzzing about the Jets, the Redskins and Dolphins but I think he needs to go to another dome team.

The Vikings and Rams are the only ones that are desperate for a QB though.

Maybe Jerry Jones breaks out the vault and sends Romo packing.

SF could be a player depending on their salary cap.

PAYTON + WAYNE = SUPERBOWL

But...there is no way Shanny lets other teams beat him to Payton. He has a huge crush on him. When he coached the ProBowl after losing to the steelers in 2005, he got to coach Manning. That gave him even bigger woody for a franchise QB. Hence the surprise Cutler pick.


Shanny needs a QB, BAD!!! There is no way him and Snyder lose out on this one. Even if they have to clear cap space for some of his receivers. (Which they need badly also)

Irsay has claimed that if Manning is cleared to play, they will pick up his option. Will be interesting to see what they do. If Indy is dead set on picking Luck, Manning may not want to return. I doubt he wants to be part a rebuilding project at his age.
