Since the NFL Combine is in Indy....maybe Peyton could show up there to throw some passes to wide receivers who were invited to the Combine. It would be nice to see what Peyton could do before he becomes a free agent. I can't see Irsay keeping Manning, or Manning wanting to stay in Indy at this point.
You do know Manning and Tom Condon leaked the story about him being medically cleared to play, right? You do realize why they would do that, right? You know that someone who would do that would show video proof of him being ready to play if he was in fact ready to play, right?
Or maybe not. Maybe you need to wait to see it written, well... I don't know where. I'm sure when Manning is released it will come as a huge shock to you... assuming you even believe it when it's reported.
I don't trust what anyone is saying about Manning at this point. In due time our FO will make a choice one way or the other and we'll have to live with it. I just hope they make the choice base on what Manning can really do and not on what he's done in the past.
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. -- John F. Kennedy, January 20, 1961
Again, since Mort has been Parcells' inside toady as well as that of some other prominent figures deployed to favorably homogenize or revise history through well-timed "leaks" I don't doubt that this has Condon's handwriting all over it. As such, I'm inclined toward skepticism.
That being said, I don't believe a word any of those big pay-per-story hotshots say about Manning. We'll find out soon enough.
Why so gloomy?
