Default Peyton optimistic, starts limited practice

Quote:
For the first time since Jim Harbaugh started Week 17 in 1997, the Indianapolis Colts expect to have a quarterback other than Peyton Manning at the helm when they start the 2011 season.

Itís becoming increasingly clear that the Colts are preparing not to have Manning: They signed Kerry Collins today, and ESPNís Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Coltsí top brass does not believe Manning will be ready for the regular-season opener in Houston.

However, Manning remains hopeful that heíll be far enough along in his recovery from neck surgery that he can line up under center against the Texans. Given Manningís track record of never missing more than one play because of injury, no one should bet against Manning if he thinks he can do it.

Hey, a guy can hope can't he?

If we were any other team I imagine he'd just sit. But he has owned us his entire career. We are his golden ticket to the HoF, he will try to play.

Peyton will play. I think some of it is blowing smoke, but Peyton doesn't have to be 100% to play.

I'm kinda 50/50 on this. No Manning, and the Colts offense will struggle to put up points. Manning playing before he's 100%, and it give the Texans a chance to put a good (but clean) hit on him that could affect the Colts season.

And pardon me for wanting the Colts to taste a little misfortune. They've been blessed to have the same All Universe QB play every game in every season. What goes around, comes around.

He might start week 1, but he won't start week 2.

Unfortunately he is very smart. If he starts week 1 I suspect we see some epic swan dives so we don't get a solid hit on him. He has been doing it for years.

Colts activated Peyton Manning from the physically unable to perform list, meaning he now can start practicing.
So what do we all think now?

I'm starting to think he will be the starter for Week 1.

Edit: Mort chimes in.

Chris Mortensen
Manning's exit from PUP list was expected. The issue is whether he can be ready for the opener. That is still very iffy.

Default Manning activated, OK for limited practice

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts activated Peyton Manning from the physically unable to perform list Monday, clearing the way for the four-time MVP to play early in the season.

The team said Manning will participate in practice on a limited basis on a "scripted" and controlled basis as he continues to recover from neck surgery in May.

I have been saying for weeks I don't believe all this Peyton not starting talk. I think it is smoke and mirrors to get the Texans feeling bigger than they should. I think he will start and be fine against the Texans.

It doesn't matter if he plays. He's going to look like this for most of the 4th quarter as we run out the clock.

We're his ticket? Are you kidding me? We're not even in his top 20 reasons to put him in the HOF. If we never existed he would still be in the HOF. Twice.
