~ That's why they fired the VP and GM.
~ Peyton is 36 years old.
~ Severely injured neck. May never play again.
~ $28 million signing bonus coming up. No way they do that.
~ The #1 pick and Andrew Luck in their pocket.
~ A 2 win team that is old and needs to be rebuilt. They had their run and now it's time to start over.
Luck will start his first year on a rebuilding team.
As valrod said, Irsay has already said he will bring Manning back if he's healthy. I think he's going to try to have both and I hope that doesn't happen, because it would be a shame to see Luck wasted on the bench for years. This isn't a Rodgers situation. By all accounts, Luck is ready now.
