    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.

    " eric wilbur is entitled to his opinion as you are."

    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.

    In Response to 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.

    Don't think he would enjoy of even the thought of that happening to TB. Karma is a biotch.

    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.

    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.

    Boy, you sure are building up a straw mountain to deflect this topic from Manning's noodle arm.

    And the straw man army continues to grow.

    Option #3.  They negotiate a deal that works for both of them.
