He's on the clock for 28 million if he's on the roster on a certain day. 

Everyone seems to be 50/50 with the Colts cutting him to avoid the 28m and resign him for a lower amount.

I don't see how anyone can justify taking a $28 million hit with a QB that has had 3 neck surgeries.

Peyton's comments so far are not positive regarding the dismissal of Polian. The HC situation is not resolved yet.  I think Irsay is positioning the situation so untenable to Manning that he either retires or requests his release.  No way Peyton risks his gimpy neck, which another blow could render him permanently disabled, to what in essence is going to be like an expansion team with a new GM, probably a new coach, no o-line, and a team that will have serious issues with the cap if they draft Luck and keep Peyton. 

2012 cap is same as 2011, so any increase to a player must be paid with savings from another. 

The league needs him either back as a player or in the booth becoming the next Madden.  Peyton is the MVP when it comes to marketing anything to do with the NFL, and there isnt anyone poised to take his place yet.  I think he goes in the booth.  The teams that would risk the money are the ones he probably wouldnt play for because he would want a chance of a ring in a three year span.  Maybe the Jets, but that line is weakening.  Denver?  Maybe the new QB of the LA Vikings with a small piece of team ownership?

If he gets hit again, that will just bring him and Cooper closer

To me the only thing that makes sense is to cut him when the money is right to do so, possibly resign him under a reduced deal possibly with heavy incentives. If you are the Colts do you want to be the team that killed Manning? I mean if his neck is technically "OK" but maybe you know good and well the guy needs to hang up the cleats...do you sign him? Some times the doctors just need to step in and have some balls about the situation and ground him.
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

As a Chargers fan I'm fricking thrilled Norv is coming back.   :suicide:

Dungy mentioned drafting Robert Griffin instead of Luck - that's not a bad idea.  But I think the Colts should trade the pick of Luck, get some players and still try to draft Griffin.

Would've been a perfect time to reach out to Bill Polian and see if he wanted to move to the Metroplex.

Oh well.

Polian has had a shitty draft the past few years.  Irsay has the same crazy gene that caused his old man to pack up in Baltimore and move the team.

Jerry is not going to outside for a GM, ever. He doesnt have to, nor want to, and he has so much money he doesnt care what you think.  So, it being a family biz, he is someday going to hand over football operations to son Stephen.  I wish that day was here, and Jerry could concentrate on being a great owner. 

Chicago had the coup today, snagging the guy from the Ravens to be the GM.
