A little on Marvin.




Colts head coach Tony Dungy said Marvin Harrison (http://www.footballguys.com/HarrMa00-1.php), who's coming off knee surgery, "is doing really well" and reiterated the receiver is not a suspect in an April 29 Philadelphia shooting about which he was questioned.
"Right before we closed out our OTAs he was there and he was running," Dungy said. "For the first time in a long time I saw a smile on his face because he was running pain free. So we feel good about where he's going to be physically opening up this year. Everything we've heard and communicated from the Philadelphia police department, he's not a suspect in what's going on there. So again, we feel pretty good about where he's going to be."

Running pain free.... Big news.

Peyton...




Pro Bowl quarterback Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) will need four to six weeks of recovery time after having a bursa sac removed from his left knee, the team revealed in a press release on Monday.
That timetable means he would miss at least the start of training camp. The Colts open camp on July 25 and break camp on Aug. 15.

"The procedure was routine. The Colts' medical staff expects a full and complete return to action," said Colts president Bill Polian.

For what its worth, this isn't the first time he's had a bursa sac issue. He ruptured the bursa sac in his right knee during a game in his senior year at Tennessee. The bad thing about this one is the timing of it. Mid-July surgery usually means training camp and preseason is affected. Not that Manning is a young kid who needs the reps, but Manning is a perfectionist and he thrives on preparation.

This could be scary for Peyton, but then again, the guy has been an Iron Man since he came into the league. He rarely takes a sack and I believe that is one of the reasons he's still standing. I think he'll be alright for this season though.

Colts President Bill Polian called QB Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php)'s surgery "routine" and expects him to recover in time for the regular season. Manning underwent surgery to remove an infected bursa sac from his left knee Monday afternoon, which has a recovery time of four-to-six weeks. Until then Jim Sorgi (http://www.footballguys.com/SorgJi00-1.php), Manning's seldom-used backup for the past four seasons, will take over first team duties. The team's 2004 sixth-round draft pick has compiled modest stats while appearing in only 14 games: a 90.4 passer rating, 61.1 completion percentage, 751 yards, six touchdowns and one interception.

I have to say, Manning will be the starter in Week 1. That said... This may be the first time that Manning is not overvalued and taken waaay too soon in drafts. The problem though is, if you are one that usually lets someone else snag Manning in the first round or very early in the second round....and he starts slipping because people are afraid of the surgery, you are left with a decision to be made. One thing to remember is what Fly said. He rarely takes a sack, so I wouldn't be overly concerned at this point.

Marv...


Indianapolis Colts WR Marvin Harrison (http://www.footballguys.com/HarrMa00-1.php) will be ready to go when the team holds their first training camp practice Friday morning. HC Tony Dungy said Harrison has been cleared for practice. "The last I heard from our doctors' meeting was Marvin would be ready to go when we get there," Dungy said this afternoon. "He's been running and feeling good and everybody, including Marvin, is really enthused and optimistic about how that's gone." However, Dungy said the team will take a conservative approach with Harrison's workload. Dungy also thinks no repercussions are looming from Harrison's connection to an April 29 shooting in Harrison's hometown of Philadelphia. "I've been given reason to think that Marvin's part of it will not be anything that will come up for us during the year," Dungy said.

If he is healthy, he could lower the value of Anthony Gonzalez and Dallas Clark dramatically, both of which had pretty good seasons in Harrison's absence.

Colts not telling us something??


The Colts added a little insurance while QB Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) recovers from surgery on his left knee by signing former Jaguars backup QB Quinn Gray (http://www.footballguys.com/GrayQu00-1.php) and Giants backup Jared Lorenzen (http://www.footballguys.com/LoreJa00-1.php). Gray signed a one-year deal. Lorenzen's deal has not been made public yet.

I would love for shits and giggles if Lorenzen made the team... He gets to back up both Mannings. Who else gets to say that? This really means little. Sorgi is still the go-to guy if Manning can't go.

"His first year, very talented guy. You could see that," Dungy said speaking of RB Joseph Addai (http://www.footballguys.com/AddaJo00-1.php). "But it was all new to him and he was playing a lot, especially early his rookie year, trying not to make a mistake, trying to just listen and focus and pay attention to everything. Last year I think things slowed down for him. The season went really well. This year he knows he's one of the guys we're counting on. He's got to provide that leadership role. He's just playing free and easy, and we expect big things."

Pretty encouraging words from Dungy, but could this translate into unnecessary pressure? That said, I expect Addai to be a solid fantasy guy this season.

Not really relevant to fantasy... even IDP leagues.


After much deliberation and careful thought, Quinn Pitcock resolved to retire from the NFL, Brad Leshnock, Pitcock's agent, said in an email to The Star late Tuesday. He notified the Colts of this decision last week."

Interesting.... Pitcock is a 2nd year player. Depth is a formula of success in the NFL. Let's see what Indy does here.

Peter King wrote Monday that he would guess there's a 30-35% chance that Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php)'s bursa sac issue with his knee could keep him out of the Week 1 Opener.

Would you bet that Manning misses week 1?? I bet a lot, especially on football and I wouldn't lay money down on that bet. No matter how good the odds are.

That said... When Manning had the surgery, it was said he'd be out 4-6 weeks, he is now in week 5 and the Colts are providing no info at all. He has started range of motion exercises, which is promising, but now its looking more as if there is a slight chance he could miss week one.

I would say there is 100% chance he plays week 1. If he doesn't - mark me down for this one. If Manning does NOT play week 1, I will take Chicago and the points (not silly enough to take Chicago SU) for the win.

More on Manning...


Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) made it to his first practice of the season Tuesday, then ended his self-imposed silence by saying he wanted to play in Indianapolis' regular-season opener vs. Chicago -- although he couldn't provide a guarantee. "I've not really had a whole lot to say, to tell you the truth," he said. "As to when I'll be back on the practice field, that's still to be determined. Obviously, the sooner, the better for me. My goal is to be back for the first game." Manning also bristled at the speculation that has been around. "This, maybe, will stop some of the whining going on," he said. "I just didn't want to get into these daily progress reports. I've done nothing but rehab, I guess we're sort of in the rumor mill now. I don't wear a knee brace, I wore this [wrap] today, really for the first time."

A little more Manning...




Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) is expected to participate in a full-squad practice for the first time Tuesday, the next step in his recovery from knee surgery.
Coach Tony Dungy said today the plan is to remove Manning from the PUP list, which would make him eligible to practice.

"I think we'll ease him in and see how he practices and what he's able to do and we'll see from there," Dungy said.

Let's see what the day brings... Some reports are saying full squad practices, while a few others outside of the Indianapolis area are reporting that Manning will participate in individual drills only.

King_Killah
08-27-2008, 01:19 PM
Colts QB Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) returned to practice and according to Colts writer Phillip Wilson, he looked very good. Here's how Wilson described it in the Indy Star:
"Peyton Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannPe00-1.php) practiced today. And I saw him. And he looked like the same, old Peyton in some throwing drills, dropping back, running out a fake off a pitch. And he wasn't wearing a knee brace on either knee.

The Colts are sticking to the conservative company line on his return -- Colts coach Tony Dungy said Manning, like a few other players, was still "iffy" for the season opener. I couldn't resist teasing Dungy about a new injury category, "iffy." That would save him a lot of explanations if from now on he just said iffy."

But from what a small group of reporters witnessed, Manning looked like the guy we remembered.

This sounds nothing but positive. But a question mark still remains.

King_Killah
08-27-2008, 01:20 PM
"The Colts aren't certain about center Jeff Saturday, but it sounds like he's going to miss the season opener and could be gone for an extensive amount of time. Any time Dungy suggests an injury could be "major," as he did today, I fear the worst. And what a bummer, considering Saturday has to be one of the most respected and affable guys in the locker room. Dungy also said it could be a week or two, too, but there's obviously something wrong with that right knee. Saturday gets an MRI, yet a day later, his status is uncertain? We've learned the hard way to smell out such deliberate reports. My gut says this is bad."

This could actually be bad.. If the Colts go down Manning AND center Saturday, the offense just took a tumble. Pay attention to this.

Jeff Saturday's agent said Wednesday that his client is expected to miss at least six weeks after suffering ligament damage to his right knee in the Colts' third preseason game.

According to agent Ralph Cindrich, Saturday could be out significantly longer if he opts for surgery. "I don’t think he’ll be able to get back on the field for at least six or seven weeks," Cindrich said. "He’s down for a while." Saturday has started 59 straight games dating back to 2004 and the Colts will likely turn to rookie Steve Justice in his absence.
Source: Indianapolis Star (http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080827/SPORTS03/80827063)


Wow, that's a huge, HUGE loss for them, Saturday is one of the best centre's, if not the best in the NFL.

I also read something that said if he does have the surgery, that he could miss 11 weeks.

This is what I was thinking too...




After Thursday night's preseason finale, coach Tony Dungy gave his most definitive answer yet when he said the two-time league MVP should play in the Colts' regular-season opener against Chicago on Sept. 7.
"I would be shocked if he's not there (a week from) Sunday," Dungy said. "He would have to have a dramatic setback. Right now, every step we've taken has been good."

Really it is between Garcon and Collie. Hall is a big target but is a work in progress. Garcon has skills and quickness and strength to break tackles. Collie isn't as athletically gifted as Garcon but almost never drops a pass thrown at him, and can make the impossible catch.

IndyFootballReport.com reports Peyton Manning (http://subscribers.footballguys.com/players/MannPe00-1.php) commented on the improvement of WR Pierre Garcon (http://subscribers.footballguys.com/players/GarcPi00-1.php). "We are expecting big things out of Pierre this year. He's a very hard worker. I really feel like he got better in his rookie year even though he wasn't playing a lot. He didn't waste a year. When he was called upon in certain situations, he knew what he had to do. He's got tremendous speed, and that is something I'm sure all you can see. He can run and he can get deep. That's a good quality in the NFL, and there are some things you can do with a guy like that. I know he is kind of competing for that third receiver position. When we go three wide, I know he wants to be on the field. He is primarily more of an outside receiver; he works the right and the left, not as much as the slot. And I think he's off to a good start."

Its still between Garcon and Collie who will likely split the #3 role at WR. This season, look for Dallas Clark to be huge. Look for Gonzalez to step up, while Wayne tumbles a little.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts SS Bob Sanders is done for the season after being diagnosed with a torn biceps tendon.

The tear was discovered while Dr. James Andrews performed what likely was initially only intended to be a "scope" on Sanders' elbow. The loss vaults Melvin Bullitt into the starting lineup full time. Bullitt is one of the top backup safeties in the game, but Sanders is a better playmaker. The Colts are still lucky to have terrific depth and an outstanding scheme in the back.

I'm done saying the Jets get blown out but I definitely think Manning produces like a monster at some point in this game, either in the 2nd or 4th quarters.

That is a very probable writeup and i defintately could see all of it happening.
But heres what i want to see happen, A JETS win. The possible story line/ headlines are too huge to ignore. The Colts have a perfect season in the balance and decide to sit the starters. They lose a "MEANINGLESS GAME" to the JETS and low and behold ---> the Jets qualify.

Indy has the better offense. Better QB and a better team. No questions asked but i think Colts nation is nervous about this game. If Indy comes out and executes early, that nervous enery will be dispelled. Advantage home field. But I think the Colts will fumble and drop passes more than usual.

I saw many others like Montana, Elways, Marino, etc. but I was around 12 when they started and, compared to now, I didn't know shit. I truly believe that he is the most irreplaceable player in the NFL that I have ever seen and I love watching him play. That said, he is also the QB of the team that just knocked the Jets out of the playoffs. It is also hard to root against the Saints. Great team to watch and I love what they have done for that city. Might just wear my Manning jersey at the party and take it off at halftime if needed.

I'm in the same boat. Big Manning fan, but also think it'd be awesome for the Saints to win the SB after all these years. I doubt I'll pick sides and will just enjoy the game.

I have often gone into a game with that thought process but that is impossible for me to actually do. I always find myself pulling for a team, even when I went into the game trying to force myself to root for the other team or trying to be neutral.

I'm not on either side of this game, but I do think it will be one of the best Super Bowl games we have seen. Either the Colts and Peyton win (he would most likely win SB MVP) and Peyton becomes the greatest QB of all time with 2 Super Bowl Rings, 2 Super Bowl MVPs, 4 Regular Season MVPs, and the best Regular Season record (amongst many other records) as a QB or Brees wins it for a city that probably needs it more than other city in New Orleans! It's gonna be a great game!

Wow, this is such an epic matchup, are there two teams in the NFL right now who you would rather watch on the losing side in the 4th quarter? To QBs? Seriously, this game can be 41-10 entering the 4th quarter and a comeback would probably be likely. This is going to be amazing.

This probably wasn't Indy's season before the injury. Now, it's definitely not. They will still be good because Manning could make me into a 50-600 WR but I don't expect much from them in the end.

A few weeks before the superbowl, i recall hearing stories of a new Peyton Manning contract. The word was he was going to be the highest paid player in football history by a large margin in an absolutely ridiculous contract. Im no Colts fan but i would be pissed if he makes well beyond the 2nd highest paid NFL'er. I get that he is a legitimate top player in the league and Manning is the Colts. He literally runs the offense and his chain of command supersedes the offensive coach it seems. Having said that, the NFL is a salary cap league and if he earns big money, then he will ultimately have to work with lesser talent on the field.. A hardcore colts fan that i bumped into said, "Manning shouldn't demand crazy money if he is serious about getting back to the promise land." That is the logical thing to do but What do you guys think? Im not familiar with the Salary Cap of the NFL but im curious, will his potential new contract be a detriment to the rest of the team or is the Cap a non-issue??

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/102725/20110119/colts-manning-contract.htm

I remember when Michael Jordan signed for $20 million a season (dont recall if the NBA had a cap at the time) but Jordan was the greatest and he delivered so nobody cared... different times, different game, different circumstances i know, but i think it draws similar comparisons because some feel Manning is the best in the game today!?


So this leads me to, how do you rank the top 5 QB's in the league today?? my list of top 5 would be:

1. Brady
2. Vick <--- call me crazy but i would take Vick 2nd!
3-5?? Rodgers, Brees, P. Manning,

6. Rothlisberger
7. Rivers

so your list would look like:

2-4. Manning, Brees, Rodgers ???
5. Vick

6. Rivers
7. Rothlisberger

Im ranking Vick 2nd only because he can do what no other QB does.. imagine if Vick played on a team with D-fence...

Doing what no other QB does makes you somewhat unique. It doesn't make you a top 5 NFL QB. Renaldo Nehemiah also did something that no one else could do. It didn't make him a top WR. I really don't feel like doing a list but, if I did, I might let Vick sniff the top 10 if it was around the holidays and I was in a giving mood. Let's keep it in our pants, though. IMHO, he was always a great athlete and an average QB. While it's obvious that he has improved as a QB, he still has a lot of ground to make up before he can hang with the big boys.

Be careful when comparing NFL players to those in other sports. The contracts mean shit as the money (other than signing bonuses) isn't guaranteed. It's the guaranteed money that matters. Who knows what is happening behind closed doors but I haven't heard a peep from him about his contract. It seems like the Colts have had a hardon for making him the "highest paid".

Peyton Manning will play Week 1. Collins is for insurance purposes only as the other two backup QB's on IND are god awful.

I would be shocked if Manning didn't play in week 1. I think the Colts got a good enough look at their backups and realized that they wouldn't cut it and signed Collins as insurance. But I honestly don't think Peyton won't be ready unless he physically is not cleared to play

Luck has missed ten practices while finishing that degree. At least he will be able to get a job after busting out of the league. I called this last year when he passed up the NFL, he waits a year, gets drafted and still doesn't want to be a pro.

My wow was directed towards the messenger and not the message. I saw quite the number of assumptions in his statement. I am on the record as saying that I applaud any player that respects the degree and enjoys playing college ball enough to stick around and finish up before becoming a pro. Obviously, his family needs to be well enough off to allow him to do that (which it apparently is) but it's not like he can retire from the NFL and use any remaining eligibility then.

The Colts.......... Luck made the Colts faithful say Peyton who???? They will certainly build on what they did last year. Luck is Peyton. He is a student of the game. I just hope he doesn't get one of those foreheads that are so big we call it a fivehead like Peyton has. The team was ugly in the draft and that isn't a bad thing. What I mean is they took guys who get dirty(not play dirty). The big german Bjoern Werner is a monster. Then they brought in almost 950lbs. and 19ft. in height with their next three picks. The 6'5 guard out of Illinois should get a starting spot sooner than later, likely out of camps.

The skilled positions I am a little uneasy with, but just like the Patriots and just like what Peyton Manning did, he can work with what he has. Of course, Reggie Wayne is first class and TY Hilton was strong. They bring in Derius Heyward-Bey. Will he shine in Indianapolis or fizzle like he did in Oakland? Coby Fleener will be a suitable TE. The running backs are thin, but with teams needing to respect Luck, they will benefit. Vick Ballard, Delone Carter, Donald Brown will get some competition out of Al Alexander and Davin Meggett for spots on the roster. With the AFC looking the way it does right now, I am plugging the Colts in the playoffs at least as a Wild Card.
