I was listening to mike and mike today and they spoke about peyton manning's injury, saying that the colts refuse to put him on the IR. At 0-8, there is no reason why you keep someone of that caliber and start him on a (1-12 or 0-13) team by december, especially when he is coming off a big surgery.
This is when Herm Edward's made a great point. They only reason they decided this is for the suck for luck sweepstakes. They really want to see what is left in Peyton because they are going to be in a great position for andrew luck. Herm said this is most likely a case for picking up Andrew luck and trading peyton manning..
This blew my mind.. we did this with montana... it is possible.. If the colts were not contemplating this and knew peyton was locked for them why would they keep him on an 0-14 or 1-13 team and not put him on IR?.. clearly they want to see what is left in him.
I wanna hear reaction from our fellow niner fans... We are clearly the best landing spot for a QB like peyton to come in... I know its farfetched.. but it IS a possibility
