Rumors are spreading today that Peyton Manning had neck fusion surgery today and will be out for the entire season.

Didn't his oldest brother Cooper have to retire from football because of neck/spine problems? Hopefully this isn't the end for Peyton.

Wonder if the Colts regret giving him that contract before the season started now? How much of this did Peyton and his agent know before signing the deal? Hmm?

Either way, this is horrible news for the Colts...they will be looking at a good draft pick this year anyway! And it opens up the division for the Texans to finally make the postseason this year!

As much as I LOATHE Peyton Manning, I respect him and he is one of the best quarterbacks of our generation - (however, Brady still is the better of the two.) I would hate for his career to end this way if it does.

However, it's not like I'm going to be watching many Colts games now that Manning is out for the forseeable future because Kerry Collins is about as :eek: as you can get.

I wonder if the Colts do end up putting Manning on IR in a few weeks, if Orlovsky will get his spot back on the Colts roster? Or maybe they just sign a younger guy as they clearly wouldn't being playing for this year.

why wouldnt they sign David Garrard, Collins needs to be behind a solid O-line to be successful he is Bledsoe like, strong arm but is a statue in the pocket, cant see him lasting the season. Of course Danny O is out there.

I used to rep a golf shirt company from New Orleans and the owners family were best friends with the Mannings. The owner was a former 2 guard from Tulane who was drafted by the lakers. Anyway, the kids of both families grew up playing sports together.They told me Cooper was an incredible athlete and by far the most talented of the Mannings. As I recall it was a neck/spine problem that killed Cooper's chances of a career in sports. Cooper was a lot more like his Dad Archie who was an outstanding scrambler/runner and probably took more of a beating than any quarterback in NFL history. Neither Peyton or Eli could hold a candle to their Dad athleticly.
