    Re: Is Peyton Manning Done?

    I for one am sad if his career ends this way.  He is a gifted quarterback.  I do not know of another quarterback that can sit on the side lines, look at photos of the defense and make changes to exploit their weaknesses.  He has made the Colts a contender for many years.  He is good for the NFL.  As much as I hate when he has beaten the Patriots over the years, I do repect him as a player and a person.  The Colts will not be the same without him.

    For what ever the reasons, if he is done, does he settle in Indiana or does he buy that Island for 40M guaranteed and start the "Peyton Nation"?

    I think he's getting $23 million this year, so I think he'd be ok financially.  If there's anyone to feel sorry for it's the Colts organization, they just paid $23 million for a lemon.

    In Response to Re: Is Peyton Manning Done? : Same can be said for Rusty w/ the Jets , No He had updated evry day as to every little injury they incurred and hoped that the train would be derailed for every setback... And thats his opinion too, but I get tired of watching Russ put up all this Jets inof and he gets no slack for it, and turns a lot of good threads into pissing contests w/trolls he claims not to like but cant resist going back and forth. and yes, I agree w/Texas pats it is big news..not sure about multiple threads, but since when is that new?  We have stupid Randy MOss posts because of a comment made about something not going to happen...they will moce to next page if ignored....stop whining and move on or dont read like Tex suggested

         The purpose of this thread is not to poke fun at "The Dog(gggg), but to raise awareness as to just how serious Manning's condition is. It is career threatening. 

         As to why The Dog(gggg) is not here commenting, I expect that he knows what I'm saying is true.

         Heck, he's such a Peyton worshipper...he's probably on a suicide watch in some psyche ward.

    Has anyone here had nerve damage? I pinched my sciatic a few years ago and it was humbling. The most painful, shooting pain imaginable.  Literally dropped me to my knees. Nothing I did made it better, then it slowly started to go away. - I know Peyton's situation is much different than mine, but only time will tell.  I wish Peyton the best. He's a dork, but he's a class dork.

    WE can only hope, as for playtex (i have not liked him since his tennesse days) and im not a UT fan either, just that i do not think he is the greatest of all time, right now i believe that joe "cool" montana is the g.o.a.t. and brady is not far behind, but i do hope he does come back in time for 12-4-11 because i love that "pouty" face at the end of the day when he has "nightmares" at the razor, so get well soon playtex because the pats/colts game will not be the same without you (as in the 2008 game was not the same without brady) as for UD6, im glad he is not on here, (ol robby is at home crying or he is on suicide watch as of now) and the dog(ggggg) will not be missed on this forum

    Re: Is Peyton Manning Done?

    I'm going to ignore the back and forth and just jump in and say.. I think he is mostly done.  Necks are nothing to mess with, he has a new contract with guaranteed money, and they can draft and have him mentor for a year and see how it goes, neck wise.  He will get back on the field, but he will be rusty and I don't think that bodes well for his success.  And at some point he will get hit hard and his neck is weaker than before, and I just don't see him risking permanent injury once the record for consecutive games is blown.

    Manning will play again. But it would take an incredible amount of luck for something like this, at his age especially, to not be the beginning of the end. 

    So he'll come in after a big chunk of the season has gone ... with zero practice, while the rest of the NFL is in midseason form ... and play. But he'll take hits, and his neck will take hits. 

    I don't really feel bad though. 1.) He played for a long time, walked out of college into a huge rookie contract, and walked onto a team with a handful of first roun picks all devoted to giving him weapons to play with. He has had a 'dream' career, and I wonder how many other QBs might have looked better had they been given that situation. 2.) I think the Favre saga has severly skewed how people view the position ... QBs who play well into their late 30's are anomalous. They are the exception ... not the rule.

         I know that Manning feels obligated to continue playing after signing that mega-deal a couple of months ago. But, why risk further injury? He's won a championship (albeit a tainted one), and has solidified his place as one of the all-time greats. For his own good, he should negotiate a settlement with the Colts, and retire.

    Re: Is Peyton Manning Done?

    I think he thinks he still can.  And remember, he has sponsorship deals to complete.  I guess he is smart enough to know when to call it a day, and he certainly has enough money, so I guess when he either can't throw or gets hurt again he will quit.  I'm predicting he gets hurt this year around game 12, gets more surgery, sees how it goes into training camp, retires.

    Re: Is Peyton Manning Done?

    Looks like he had another surgery on this past sunday and he is likely done for the season. I hate to see him go down like this. We are in a great run to see two great QB's fight it out year in year out. I used to hate him, but started appreciating by looking at some of the moron qb's around the league. Hopefully Rodgers will be that good again.

    vpinidi,

    That tweet can't be true.  Manning just spoke to the media today and made no mention of a 3rd surgery.  Not sure where that guy got his info.  Maybe from the speculative Indy radio host who said Manning was going to undergo a 3rd surgery.

    It is hard for me to believe that he is done. I expect he will be playing sometime this season. Probably sooner rather than later or the Colts would have taken action sooner.

    And I hope he is not done. Especially not done losing to the Pats. It is much sweeter to beat Manning than almost anyone else - Jets excepted. And that is in large part because he is SO GOOD. Like him or not he is.

    In Response to Is Peyton Manning Done?:
         As the Peyton neck injury drama lingers, more detailed information is coming out regarding the nature of his injury. For football fans and, especially Colts' fans, the news is not good. The following excerpts are from an article in the IndyStar entitled, "Nothing is Certain When Dealing With Nerve Injuries":  "Peyton Manning's pain not go away any time soon. A doctor familiar with neck surgeries said there isn't a clear-cut timetable for recovery from such procedures and it's not a given the damaged nerve will ever heal. That the Indianapolis Colts four-time NFL MVP quarterback is experiencing weakness in his throwing arm so far removed from a May 23 surgery suggests the nerve hasn't healed, said Dr. Neel Anand, director of Orthopedic Spine Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "The nerve was injured in some fashion, he has some weakness and now you're waiting for that nerve to recover," Anand said Tuesday. "Depending on the extent of the injury, it could take six weeks, it could take two years. And there's no guarantee it will come back...  Manning, 35, had what was described as a "minimally invasive" surgery in Chicago to remove part of a bulging disk. He had a similar surgery in March 2010 to alleviate pain from a different pinched nerve. But his latest recovery hasn't been as smooth as the first. "If all things went well with the (recent) surgery, he should be very much healed," Anand said. "So if he hasn't, I'd think that particular condition has gotten worse or he has a new condition, he's got a new disk (problem) elsewhere. That would make the most sense. "But we really don't know how bad (the damaged nerve) was to begin with." It's also more common for an athlete with one neck problem to develop another. "I always tell patients it's like having four tires on the car," the doctor said. "If your one tire went bad, you know the other three aren't that good. They all are around the same number of miles and took the same hits. http://www.indystar.com/article/20110907/SPORTS03/109070334/Unnerving-development      The bottom line appears to be that Peyton's neck problems are dissimilar to a sprained ankle, or a torn ACL. With time, a QB can return to health. But this, especially for a 35 year old QB, may be something that lingers indefinitely.
