    I don't care if he continues to stink up the NFL on whatever team he joins, but I sure hope he stops stinking up my TV with those endless commercials.

    newsflash...i just saw Peyton Manning walking my neighbors dog down the street...he said he's done! :)  What, you don't believe me?

    I don't like having to face a P. Manning led team...but he's a great football player and would hate to see him have to hang it up before he's truly done.  Wishing him the best in his recovery.

    Some of Lowe's family is from Indiana, and if I understand correctly still live here.  Some acquaintences from my youth said they had partied with Lowe many years ago on one of the lakes in Northern Indiana, that he was frequently there because family had a cottage there.

    Can't confirm the truth to any of this.

    I just don't see how PM can get back on a football field with this kind of injury. He is soon to be 36 years old. It's a shame to see a great player have to retire a bit early, but it is probably the wise thing to do. These guys really take a beating.

    had this discussion with a coworker of mine. 

    Here's my take, and I admit I could be wrong.  As I understood things:

    1.  there was nothing structurally wrong with his neck.  He had a herniated disc that was putting pressure on a nerve causing the numbing in his arm. 
    2.  His first 2 surgeries were minimally invasive to try to relieve the pressure being put on the nerve, but they did not work entirely.  Manning's entire 2010 season was played with this condition. 
    3.  The fusion was done to remove the disc causing the nerve issue.  
    4.  There have been conflicting reports, but I have read some that while the fusion would limit some mobility (restate - actually would not limit mobility), if the nerve issue is resolved the actual fusion would make the area in his neck stronger than it was before.  That there would be no greater injury risk than if the surgery was never done. 
    5.  The key is whether or not the surgery eliminated the nerve issue. If not, I could see him retiring.  It apparently affected him significantly.  If the nerve issue is resolved, I'd be surprised to see him retire. 

    We shall see.

    I personally thought many of Peytons commercials were funny. Granted I did not want to see them crammed in my face as often as they were but that's not his fault how often they were shown.

    Thought he and Tom were both funny on their SNL nights as well.

    It'd be a severe shame to see him go to be honest. But now is not the time to "rub some dirt on it". He has to ask himself questions such as "life without another superbowl ring or life without working legs". The sad but true fact is that his end is soon if not now no matter what way you slice it....is it worth the risk?

    This information, plus the change of coach (seemingly a change of direction), seem to indicate, there may be soemthing to this.

    A herniated disc is something structurally wrong with your neck.  What are you, stupid?

    Hi Dave, 

    amongst all of the information provided this is what you chose to focus on.  Tells me that you just prefer to be an as$hole (no surprise there) rather than continuing the conversation.  

    Herniated discs are a very common physical ailment today.  A large portion of the general population deal with them every day without surgery.  Manning got his surgery in order to continue to play football.  

    The structural comment was that the surgery was performed to release the pressure on the nerve, not to repair an otherwise fragile (structurally unsound) or broken vertabrae.  

    Some are suggesting that Manning give up the game because its not worth him breaking his neck or becoming paralyzed.  His neck surgery had nothing to do with structural fragility in any way more than any other football player.  In fact, some have said that the area of the neck where the surgery was done is now stronger than it was before.   

    His ability to play effectively, as I understand it, has everything to do with nerve regeneration and not the neck.

     That's a very short sided and naive way of looking at the problem.
    The Creator put 7 discs (shock absorbers) in the neck for a reason.
    Although the surgery stabilizes the affected disk and eliminates the bulging that effects the nerve, it also causes the corresponding discs to work harder and makes them more seceptable to injury.
    So, if C-3 is affected, it places more stress on C-2 and C-4 which makes them over worked and will eventually result in the same problem for those.
    The constant impact will accelerate the problem, so avoiding the catalist would be prudent.
