    Thanks. Interesting stuff. Especially the part about Irsay wanting Manning to retire.

    Given the changes that they've gone through, his health uncertainty, and the $ involved, there is no doubt in my mind that Manning has taken his last snap under center. Look for him in a booth on CBS next year.

    He's got millions, two twin newborns, and a neck that could cause permanent damage with the wrong hit. Can't take away from his legacy but he's done IMO.

    I think he's definitely done in Indy. I think he'll probably try and sign with another team though, but there certainly are some good reasons for him to hang it up.

    If he is done as a player, as I predicted LAST year. Expect him to go into coaching not the booth, either Qb coach or OC. He's to competitive to not be actively envolved.

    Considering the comments yesterday by Peyton and today by Irsay, it does suggest that Peyton is going to leave the Colts.

    It's probably the right move for the franchise. The question will be whether Peyton plays, and if so, who for?

    For his sake - and the sanity of the fans and the media - I hope he doesn't end up like another Favre.

    I'd imagine he'd only want to risk it all for another title (he's already loaded beyond imagining and that doesn't seem his motive), but which team is really just a QB step up as well as having the cap room (unless he leaves millions on the table)?

    It'd leave only the Niners and Jets and both of them are a step behind the top teams. He's more likely to get a ring via coaching staff. The booth won't get him that. If he did retire, the scramble to get him into coaching could be frantic - if the Colts annoyed him too much for him to return there, there's going to be a fair few franchises bidding for his services.
