    Manning bonus count down.

    27 days and counting before the 28M bonus. Do the Colts pull the trigger or cut and run?  I say thet cut and run. Try to trade him but there are no takers and they free Willie.

    Re: Manning bonus count down.

    Stirring the pot, eh JRI? 

    So as long as a writer says something with conviction that means its true in your book?  So, I guess you are taking Eric Wilbur's article on Brady as gospel then, because I am not sure one can show much more conviction with words than he did, right?  And he didn't retract his words.  

    as for Manning's arm, I believe I am correct that Kravitz was simply reporting what he had heard, and that he has not actually seen Manning throw. On the other hand, Bill Polian watched Manning throw over a month ago and these were his words this week on Sirius/XM:  
      
            "It’s marked [improvement] from where he was back in September," Polian said regarding Peyton’s arm strength in December, when Polian last observed Manning. "He threw it accurately, he threw it with a good, tight spiral, and he threw it with velocity. Generally, he looked like a pretty confident quarterback out there."

    http://www.stampedeblue.com/2012/2/9/2788336/bill-polian-peyton-will-return-at-a-high-level-adam-vinatieri-says

    So, I guess there are contrary reports out there.  One is first hand and the other is not. 

    Now I am not naive enough to take either one of these comments as gospel like you.  They both have biased reasons for saying what they have said, but if I've got to believe one over the other, I'll take the one with first hand knowledge. 

    That isn't to say that Manning's arm is ready at this time, but then again it doesn't have to be.  He's got at least another 4-5 months before he needs to be ready to play which is why I think, if he is willing, he and the colts will figure out an arrangement that will allow him to stay with the colts.  

    I am speculating, of course, but so is everyone else.

    True, but Wilbur shouldn't have a job writing for Boston.com when there are much better writers in this forum than him. Not surprised  to learn that UD6 is a close follower of Wilbur's shoddy work.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Manning bonus count down. : eric wilbur is entitled to his opinion as you are. I am just going by what i read. There has been info coming from unnamed sources in the Manning circle that he has plateaued and has not progressed to where an average NFL QB needs to have his arm strength. So the question remains... what does a "noodle arm" QB get on the open market?   Report : Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning may never play again ... Report : Those close to Manning fear his career is over | National ... Peyton Manning Not Throwing Like an NFL Quarterback …

    I am well aware of what I or anyone else is entitled to.  I am just trying to validate your position that you believe anything and/or everything a writer says or writes with conviction.  Is this your position?  

    I do know that there are a number of conflicting reports regarding Manning's arm strength as it relates to his nerve regeneration.  I am willing to believe that there is some truth to the fact that he is not back to full strength.  If he was, I'd imagine someone would have put a camera on his throws for the public to see, because his arm at full strength is worth about 28 million to him come March 8.  

    As for Manning having a "noodle arm", I am not sure I buy that.  I assume (maybe I shouldn't) that you know that professional writers, especially columnists, have a way with words - otherwise they wouldn't be writers, right?  But to answer your question directly, I am not sure a QB with a "noodle arm" is worth much to anyone, but what do I know?  Kravitz's retracted words, don't seem to be stopping other teams and their fans from expressing interest.  In fact, I am told there is currently a billboard somewhere around Indy from fans in Tennessee urging Manning to come back there.  So, if in fact, Manning does have a noodle arm, you might want to inquire with the Titans, Dolphins, Seahawks, Cardinals, and probably a few others I've neglected to mention about his worth, or you can tweet Irsay and ask him.  

    Looking forward to your answer.

    Not a follower of Wilburs.  Not even a fan.  In fact, his recent comments on Brady are likely the first I've read from him.  I am simply trying to solidify JRI's position regarding writers who talk or write with conviction.  Because of his follow up response (or rather non-response), I am thinking that maybe JRI was just trying incite as opposed to actually believing his own words.

    Jri - so can I assume from your comments here that you don't actually believe everything you read or hear from writers who write or speak with conviction? 

    If that's the case, then how come Kravitz's retracted words carry much more weight with you than Wilburs non-retracted words?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Manning bonus count down. : My position is not relevant. what is relevant is what are the Colts going to offer Manning to redo his contract as you stated they would do in your original post. i was having a little fun with you by asking what the going rate was for a "noodle arm' qb. It was your supposition that they would renegotiate to buy time so I am wondering what the Colts would offer and what Manning would take. 
    Posted by jri37[/QUOTE]

    Of course your position is relevant.  You made it so, by indicating you believe Kravitz due to the conviction of comments and expressly regardless of the fact that he retracted them.  Without your position, you likely wouldn't have posted the question.  My follow ups were an attempt to understand you a little better.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Manning bonus count down. : In Kravitz case you can only take him for his word. He claimed that he had sources that told him Manning did not possess the arm strength and had plateaued. He used "noodle arm to illustrate his point and regretted the words he used to describe the situation. In wilburs case the piece was full of venom and suppositions which he has every right to state his opinion. eventually the consumer will decide his ultimate fate.
    Posted by jri37[/QUOTE]
    But you took Kravitz at his original words based on your assumption of his conviction even AFTER he retracted the statement and specifically noted as such.  So you take him at some of his words but not others.  Got it.  And does it matter whether the writer's words of conviction include venom or not?  Heck, I would think if conviction was the thing that tipped your belief scale then Wilbur's would have to be gospel to you. 

    Or maybe you could just stop trying to be cute and back yourself into a corner. 

    Regarding the "plateauing", have you played sports JRI, lifted weights, run for time, etc?  Frequently athletes as a part of their growth process hit limits before eventually breaking through and moving on to the next level.  It is just as possible that if the plateauing thing is true that Manning would break through that barrier as it is that he wouldn't.  Nerves are a tricky thing, but I know after multple knee surgeries that the nerve damage that was caused as a part of the surgery has generally, although not completely resolved itself.  This is the expectation with Manning.  The question, ultimately, is how long will it take, and no one, not even Manning, owns the crystal ball with that answers.

    Re: Manning bonus count down.

    I see - so you are well aware of the concept of plateauing.  

    Lets review:
     * you accept that Kravitz retracted his statement but still believe him.  Maybe his position simply fits your desired outcome.  
    * you believe writers words based on conviction unless you don't.  Maybe you only believe writers whose words fit your desired outcome.  
    * you believe second hand information more than first hand information.  
    * you believe unnamed sources more than you believe named sources.  

    I can only conclude that you were intentionally trying to stir the pot.  Noted.  

    I don't know what the colts will offer Manning.  My hope and belief is that they will figure something out.

    Re: Manning bonus count down.

    Seems like Peyton really took advantage of the Colts by signing a huge deal and then immediately having surgery that would limit (and in fact end) his season.

    If he had any class, Peyton would be offering to make the bonus contingent on his health or agree to move the decision date. Of course the business argument is: both sides agreed to the deal and signed it - now live with it. Peyton already won - he was paid $20 million for nothing .. with the chance for $48 million. At least he likes football and plays hard - unlike Albert.

    Re: Manning bonus count down.

    Even if healthy why would Manning want to come back to the Colts? If he wants to chase SB's, it's obvious he needs to find a contender. Colts are probably 2-3 years from being competitive with the top NFL teams.

    The only truth is this whole Peyton saga is that the sportswriters and talking heads have been wrong more than they've been right. Until Peyton runs drills and demonstrates his capabilities all speculation means squat.

    Peyton also has a history of taking 2-3 years to get on the Same Page with his receivers and tight ends. He'll have a small window of time to form relationships with his new team. It's going to be an interesting spring/summer.
