It May be Curtains for Manning

Curtains for Manning

Reports are (yahoo sports) MVP Peyton Manning has not responded well from neck surgery, and the slow rate at which the nerves in his arm are healing indicate he will not play again.

In the meantime, the clock is ticking ever closer to March 8. That’s the deadline for your Colts to decide if to pay Manning’s $28 thousand option bonus. If they don’t really, Manning becomes free realtor.

Peyton holds NFL records for consecutive seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing (6) and the most total seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing in a career (11).[3][4] Manning holds the sixth highest career passer rating (94.9) in NFL history and is the all-time Colts franchise leader in career wins, career passing yards, pass attempts, pass completions, and passing touchdowns.[5] In 2009, he was listed by The Sporting News as the No. 1 player in the NFL.[6] The same year, Fox Sports named him player of the decade. Since the Colts drafted Manning in 1998, the team has the highest conversion rate on 3rd down (44.6%) and 4th down (61.1%) plays in the NFL. While leading the Colts to their Super Bowl XLI victory in 2007, Manning helped the team to an NFL record by converting 56.1% of its 3rd downs.

Manning led the Colts to a 29–17 victory over the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI and was voted Super Bowl MVP. Manning, who had been criticized for failing to win big games, exorcised his big-game demons with the win. “In years’ past when our team’s come up short, it’s been disappointing,” he told reporters. For his role in the Colts’ championship run, Manning was awarded the ESPY for Best Championship Performance. Manning was again named to the Pro Bowl and was also named Second-team All-Pro. In the Pro Bowl that year, Manning played only two series, passing for 67 yards.

If he does not retire is an excellent possibility tha Peyton Manning will not be a Colt in the near future.
