         Do you think that Manning's neck problems may have some impact as to how the Colts approach re-signing him? Should they consider it?

    Irsay has publicly said it won't, but he has tried to spin before, so who knows.  I am sure that Irsay has consulted a number of docs regarding the severity of the problem.  If it is deemed truly to be not that big of a deal then I don't see Irsay holding him over a barrel for it.  On the other hand, if it is significant, then I think they have to consider it.

    I'm not quite sure how firing him could be considered classless (as I believe you're implying).  Seems to me that BB has fired peo[le in a much more classless manner (Adalius Thomas springs to mind).

         What do you think the Colts should do? Should they mortgage the farm to resign their star 35 year old QB, knowing that he has this neck problem? Or...should they try to trade him to some QB desperate team, for a king's ransom in 2012-13 draft choices...and rebuild?

         I'm not implying that the Colts are classless...I'm saying it! Taking a loyal, career guy like that and unceremoniously canning him...and then lying to the press to make themselves look good...sounds pretty classless to me.

         What does Adalius Thomas have to do with anything? Thomas was stealing money with his underwhelming play, and his horrid attitude. What was BB supposed to do...reward him?

    I was just trying to make the point that a personnel move isn't personal  If Chris Polian wants to install someone else in a position where someone else has been entrenched for 30 years, that's his right.  And he publically gave the man a way to bow out gracefully (an opportunity that he waived).  This seems to me to be done in the classy way.  The Adalius Thomas situation seemed to be done in a way designed to publically humiliate Adalius prior to canning him...

    [QUOTE]What kind of deal do you think Manning should get? Factor in his age and his injury issue? I mean Brady only did a 4 year deal, do you think they give Manning a 5 or 6 year deal at age 35?
    Posted by MVPkilla4life[/QUOTE]

         The Colts franchised him in February, slapping an "exclusive" franchise tag designation on him. This prevents any other team from talking with him. Manning can choose to either sit out, sign with Indy, or sign a one year tender for $23mil.. 

         Though it sounds like Indy is in the drivers' seat with regards to controlling Manning's destiny, they really are not. Should Manning decide to sit it out, what will happen to the Colts' 2011 season? Currently, their back-up is the forgettable Curtis Painter. His limited performances in 2009-10 caused Indy fans to yearn for the good ol' days, when Jim Sorgi carried Peyton's clipboard. 

         The elephant in the room, that Colts' fans are straining not to see, is that Peyton is for Peyton, first and foremost. By sitting out, he can hold Jim Irsay hostage for any amount he wants. My guess is that he'll demand at least a 5 year, $25mil. per season deal to remain with the Colts....with 80% of the money guaranteed. 

         But...what if he wants to leave? The Colts can't really trade Manning without Manning's permission. No team is going to fork over a ton of draft picks, and hope to sign him. Indy will eventually have to grant other teams permission to negotiate with Manning, and do a sign and trade.

         The Colts are either going to have to pay through the nose for their aging, soon to be fading, star QB...or to trade him away to a team where he wants to play, for a somewhat discounted price.

         Of the two scenarios, I'd opt for the later. The core of the Indy team is comprised of Manning, Saturday, Freeney, Mathis, Brackett, Wayne, Clark, and Addai. It's an aging, somewhat injury ravaged group of players. With the exception of Addai, the average age of this group is 32-33 years old.

         Though resigning Manning for mega-dollars would likely keep the Colts relevant for another couple of years...things look bleak after that.

         It's time to rebuild in Indy.

    Let's look back at the record:  Indy executive Bill Polian once beat up a New York Jets executive because the other guy was piping in crowd noise in Giants stadium, the same cheap stunt that Bill had done previously.  These Indianapolis people believe in playing rough with guys in business suits.

    Now this employee who quite frankly has helped the helped the franchise over the years with his drafting, is tossed out the door by his better.  What makes Chris Polian better?  Why, this is In-dianapolis, and In-breeding makes Chris Polian what he is.  Daddy's little boy remembers all the details of when he was way down on the food chain, and since his sudden promotion he's ready to play rough in a suit just like pops did.  Genius.  Swinging Genius.

    Well I don't have access to the medical advice that Irsay does, but if I take him at his word that the surgery was minor.  Then the colts need to sign him. 

    Assuming its the problem was minor, Manning's got a ton of great football left in him.

    I am betting the neck injury cuts the deal by a year.  So 5.

    color me surprised that Paul will say just about anything.  Paul research your story before spouting.

    tas - I didn't say that TP didn't have a point.  I agree that it puts the colts in a spot.  That said, I believe Irsay has likely consulted with a number of experts to gain an understanding of what it means.  Finally, Manning's 4 MVP's and 2 SB's have earned him an opportunity to play again for the colts.
