Coz that is why you troll Progressive Bloggers, to find out what is happening in football in Indiana.
I will tell you.
The Peyton Manning Saga is starting to play out and I have to agree with fellow blogger Paul Kuharsky who writes that "Jim Irsay's latest dose of spin control is just another chapter in a dizzying tale that seems destined for an ugly ending."
Jim Irsay is the owner of the Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning is one of the best QBs ever. Problem is Mr. Manning's neck is a mess and that is affecting his everything else. The other problem is that Mr. Manning is owed a 24 million dollar bonus next month and if there is one thing NFL teams are noted for it is stiffing stars, and non stars, on big bonuses.
John Clayton of ESPN summed up number 12's career thusly: "Manning has broken all of Indianapolis' career records for quarterbacks and had never missed a start before last season. He's taken the Colts to the playoffs 11 times, captured seven AFC South titles in eight years, won two AFC championships, one Super Bowl title and a Super Bowl MVP Award."
But he ain't seeing that 24 million or 24 dollars next month; he is going to get poled, coz that is the way the NFL works.
