Peytons Situation

I think it's this thursday?

I would think playing golf would put as much if not more pressure on the neck, so I don't look for him to be cleared for one before the other. He was asked in an interview today how he was doing and he said ok.

I'm sure like us he is waiting to hear the doc's evaluation.

yeh i think he still has to go see the doc and got xrays to view the fusion, of he hasnt already. Nerve is all on him, doctors cant tell you what your feeling, i keep thinking its going to be one of those things that one day its like wow this feels much better and then recovers quickly

yep they are waiting for the fusion to happen. Last month was the two mark point and the was the earliest it could have been done. Even if it isn't done now don't freak out because they said two to three months was the earliest the fusion would happen. At the time though they said once that happens everything else could happen very quickly but yes you are right they have also said you can't predict when a nerve will come back.

yeh im not expecting him back, but would be good to see him and the healing progress become significant, even if its 'the fusion is coming along well, seeing progress' something like that, just to put a good thought into everyones minds for next year, possible boost for the club and players.

this week...3 months from the surgery

..no promise...but that's what he said last month..

Manning is in no hurry to return. In fact the new rumors are that he is more that 50% sure he is retiring next year. You can't blame him with how bad the team is and even he knows its time to rebuild.

I think it would be harder to play golf than throw a pass.

More relevant would be this statement: Nobody gives a poop if he can swing a golf club, he's paid to pass. Why take a risk? It's like when the basketball pro injures his knee playing flag football...

I predict that his doctors will say that his fusion is coming along, or something like that, and his prognosis is good. Why? Because they are they operated on peyton manning and everybody knows it, they will stretch the truth to be as positive as it can be.

The only thing we care about is whether or not he can throw a ball really far next year, and I'm afraid that's pretty much it.

The problem is the Colts need to know before March if Peyton is done or not because of the option on his contract. With that said I am well aware that healing doesn't always follow contract deadlines.

2 folks have responded to this post - neither have shown me that golf is a contact sport. (Contact - opponent hits you)

u dont need contact to create stress when u arch your back with arms holding club high & twist body threw that swinging motion bringing are arms down and transferring much bodily stress along the spinal cord with the follow through of the swing

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
