Originally posted by SanDiego49er:Neck injury. Can't finish season. The Colts doctors, trainers and specialists looked at him over and over and over. And had tons of time with him. Come on. If they thought he could go they would give up on a franchise QB?....
They're rebuilding and they know their team sucks without him. Knowing that, and also knowing Manning won't be around for more than a few more years regardless, it's better for them to start rebuilding NOW than wait for Manning to retire and then try to fix the mess then. They were gonna be paying him $28 million knowing the rest of their team was downright awful. On top of that, they know they'll be drafting their future franchise QB in Andrew Luck. It's really not hard to see reasons other than Manning not being able to play if you actually think about it rather than having your mind set before reviewing the facts of the situation.
Also, do you think the Broncos don't have doctors? Come on.
