Let Me See If I Get This Straight


Recommended Posts

So, "The best back and neck guy in the country" said Peyton can resume his career from a health standpoint. There is no risk to his health greater than that of any other NFL Quarterback.

Yet, we get this "report" that Peyton has developed spurs in his neck and might require an alleged 5th surgery sometime soon, meaning, I guess, that he is not really healthy enough, because in order to be, he needs this surgery. I mean the thought of him "on the clock" to re enter the surgeon's room, cannot by any menas mean he is ready, right?

Not only that, but for some spooky reason, that surgery hasn't taken place yet, they are, somehow, and against all logic, waiting for this ailment to worsen, aggravate, deteriorate, (whatever term suits your mind) for the aforementioned surgery to take place.

Either Peyton is a real %$#%$ and is lying to everybody, making us believe that he is healthy, trying to squeeze some money like the greedy guy he is [end sarcasm], becoming almost crazy, losing his mind and risking his own life just for the sake of "gettinig away with it" or this report is just very inaccurate for lack of a better word.

Now, call me crazy, but that doesn't make any darn sense at all.

Thoughts?

Truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I don't think either side is lying, but they are seeing it from different points of view. Peyton hears he is able to play and he doesn't care how many surgeries there were as long as he feels healthy now and is safe - he wants to take the risk so he's hearing the positive. The Colts have a lot to lose and are worried about the history and making the wrong decision. They are paying more attention to the negative because they don't want the risk.

We don't know if the sources for this article are accurate.

Peyton has neither confirmed nor denied having had more than 3 neck surgeries in the past 20 months.

This could be more speculation.

What we do know is what Mr. Irsay has said in his last communication regarding PM.

We now know what Mr. Irsay means when he uses the word "healthy", and when he uses the term "if he wants to be a Colt".

We have good reason to believe that the Colts will not be paying the $28MM option bonus due March 8.

i think the "talking heads" are just speculating that in the future, he "could" need something done because he "could" develop bone spurs or something....just like he "could" need a fusion at a different level, because it "could" cause other levels to over compensate for the fused one...

but i dont think "could" is a very high percentage, just something more for the media to spout off about.

I have said it since december though, i believe either peytons agent or Archie has paid the Dr off to clear him inorder to try to pick up that 28 million dollar option.

1) I don't know if the report is accurate.

2) I don't know if Irsay already knows or not.

3) However, if the report is true, and PM hasn't said anything about it to the Colts, I think he would be in violation of his contract.

I'm not so sure the best, or one of the best doctors in the U.S. would risk his career, or his reputation by doing something so unethical just as much as I doublt the Mannings being greedy conspirators...

It is all over the news, that Manning had a 4th procedure in 2011, not 2012. But, folks, a procedure is not necessarily surgery. Any kind of medical attention is called a procedure. A 4th procedure on his neck could mean something as simple as a cortisone shot. The media blows everything out of proportion and starts all these rumors to sell newspapers and t.v. advertising.

Well, asuming that reports are accurate, Irsay is in a "no win" situation. It's still not clear, if PM would be medically cleared for next season, and two scenarios are ahead: 1.) PM will retire due to health matter. 2.) He decides to wait another season and struggles tor full recovery. Clearly, none of them is favorable for any NFL owner...

So I think, it is quite understandable why don't Irsay want to unfold his cards yet, turn and river are still ahed.

There is some chance, that PM will be cleared for next season, but time is tickin' .

I don't understand why people read this "Manning is cleared to play again" release and just automatically thought that he's ready to go. The release only applies to the cervical fusion, yes it has progressed to the point where they are no longer concerned about it being an injury risk for him. Still has nothing to do with the nerve regeneration. Until we know exactly what this "4th neck procedure" was it's a moot point. The fact that there is a chance he might need a future surgery for bone spurs means little IMO. There's a chance that anybody here could get hit by a bus today, doesn't make it a certainty. As with most things in the Manning-gate of '11-12 we'll all know more in due time.

Yeah, because the most prominent neck surgeon in the country who is I'm sure already a millionaire, needs to put his entire career in jeopardy for a payoff.

The bottom line is Irsay does not plan to pay the 28M. He will tell Peyton that he will resign him if he will accept a new, more performance based contract since no one knows what his performance will be like. This story was released to make Peyton fans believe that he has been less than honest with everyone concerning his health. The truth is whatever this "fourth proceduere" was, it has nothing to do with his current status. Peyton will play football in 2012, and I fear it will not be in Indy.

thhere is always 3 sides of the story... 1 story by each party and the truth.

i think both parties have valid reasons, but they are playing a darn dangerous game.

'

the 4th surgery is irrelevant....because it came BEFORE that last one..in September..

....

Many NFL players potentially might have future surgeries.

He's been cleared to play if and when he can....

This is a non-story..

How many surgeries did Ronnie Lott have while still playing at a high level? Remember that he was a human missile. I love how people suddenly are able to affix a number of anything......say....surgeries?....and make not only a guess, but state a fact, and include the word we. Like "we all know". The intelligence and prescient thought on this board is dangerously close to omnipresent oneness.

Thank you.

    • I’d have to think that TE and LT are at the top of the list. Fisher is only on a 1 year deal after all.    CB really scares me personally though. Carrie and Rhodes gone after the season and who knows what we will get from Ya-Sin and Tell.
    • That is the thing, you can't always look at position value because there are outliers like Nelson. Of course DE is more valuable than OG but if there is an outlier like a Larry Allen or Nelson it isn't. At the time we selected Nelson we needed a major upgrade to the O.Line and to protect Luck. Had we picked 3rd, I still would've took Nelson. I just seen him as being great, one of those outliers coming out of the draft.
    • Alarming?    When the time comes, you don’t think Pittman is going to get a big contract?   You don’t think Taylor is going to get a big contract?   The answers are right in front of you, and for some odd reason, you’re not seeing it.  
    • The Colts have the cap space to sign Leonard and Smith to long-term deals this year and Nelson fortunately for us we are able to extend his 5th-year rookie contract option and post-pone his big payday a year later.   Leonard is not a true MLB so I doubt he will reset the market value at the linebacker position.  Originally thought Leonard could get a 5 year/$100 million contract with $60 million guaranteed but think it will be closer to 5 years/$82.5 million with $40 million guaranteed.   Smith am guessing closer to a 4 year/$58 million contract with $30 million guaranteed.   Depending on whom we keep/sign at left tackle I think will set the stage of how much cap space we will have left to resign players.  Do we keep an older Fisher or try to go after Viking's O'Neill (RT) and move him back to his LT position he played in college.  Both will cost a lot to retain either way and have some flexibility with O'Neill and Smith combination.   Do think Glowinski will be a cap causality since he is already on the books for $7.5 million for 2021 and expect him to make over $8 million in 2022.   The only other pending FA of note after this season to play RG Brandon Scherff but expect him to be too high priced out of the Colt range (4yr/$66 million).  So looks like OL Chris Reed might be a future option or another current OL on the roster might be able to take over.    As for the draft will have to keep in mind RG Baer Hunter from Appalachian State.  Hunter's team's OL ranked as a top-15 unit nationally that was very good at running the football.  Biggest issue have seen about Hunter from his game tapes is his a  drive killer with potential penalties with unnecessary holding and block in the backs once the play has extended past the second level.  The young man I do like best at this point in time is RG Cain Madden from Marshall.  Madden's run-blocking abilities improved form 60.3 to 74.2 from 2019/2020 and he finished top 10 among RGs.   Wouldn't be surprised next off-season if we cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut and TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m.  Some of the other FA's doubt we resign are Stallworth, Rochell, Muhammad, Carrie, Mack, Eldrenkamp, Dulin and Campbell.   After we resign Leonard and Smith to big contract extensions can see the Colts resign, MAC, Pascal, Lewis, Turray,Holden, Hunt and Reed.  Hines should also get resigned and looking at something similar to Austin Eckler contract APY $4.55 million 3 year/$13.645 million (base 3.9 million, 4.5 million, 5.65 million with 1.35 million roster bonus each year).  One FA name I like to replace Stewart with a younger improved version is Bear's IDL Bilal Nichols at best am comparing him to IDL Dalvin Tomlinson where I would offer him a 3 year/$33 million $11 million APY with $20 million signing bonus.  Again we get back either $8.125 million or $9.378 million depending on when we release Stewart under this scenario which after these movements only leaves the Colts with a projected $7-8 million in cap space currently.   Will have to do more research and play around with the futures but can envision the Colts will need to find starting WR, RG, RCB with backups at RDT, RDE, RB, FS, SS,  and TE.   Early watch list RD 1 Draft picks 2022 TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M George Pickens, WR, Georgia Drake Jackson, Edge, USC Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida   RD 2 picks Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson John Metchie III, WR, Alabama Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan          
    • If what Ballard says about a Achilles is what happens with Fisher that means he could be ready by TC. Mack looks like he might be close to 100% and he is at the 8th mark. I think they will be extra careful with Dayo. But Fisher is a vet so if he is ready he will go.  Very possible Fisher is ready week one.
