    If you're a Colts fan, are you getting a little nervous about things?

    I hope Mario and the boys smell blood in the water. It's been a long time coming!

    I gotta feeling this is the year the Colts get knocked off their AFC South throne. Hopefully, the Texans are the one to do it.:woot2:

    The Colts shouldn't be all that excited for Manning being activated. They would have to do that within a few more days unless they wanted him ineligible for 6 weeks into the season. Don't be surprised if he doesn't see action for a while. If they bring him back too soon, he is likely to set himself back to at least as long as he would be if he were placed on PUP. It will be interesting to see this all plays out. The Colts should be a little antsy over their "state of the union."

    Would you take Manning in the 1st rd. of a FF draft?

    Sorry, I'm not Fantasy rules savvy............but if it works similar to the real thing, I wouldn't bet my whole future on Manning. In the past, yes. This year, I would be as nervous as the Colts must be.

    On PFT

    Dungy is saying Manning is practicing & ahead of schedule.

    If I understand right this could actually do more harm than good.

    I don't trust Dungy after seeing how he handled Harrison's injury situation last year. (saying he wasn't hurt badly & he didn't make it back). Didn't Harrison have the same injury as Manning?

    Actually Harrison, if I remember correctly, had a ruptured bursa. Manning had an infected bursa which could carry with it more serious long term implications.

    Didn't they draft like 14 Centers this past draft?

    I imagine at least one could step in and perform. The Colts will be the Colts........as long as Manning's playing.

    That's a big loss for the Colts. Timing is everything and when Manning gets back his center is gone. I'm still waiting to see if the timing is there with his receivers. This reminds me of when the Astros moved in to "Enron Field". The first year there was not so good. Could this be the same for the Colts in their new stadium?. We will see.

    Correct title of this thread should have been: "No Saturday come Sunday".

    Why's that? Does the infection suggest an unkown underlying problem?

    Infection of the burse can spread its joy to the knee joint itself.

    Didn't he have the bursa removed?

    I'm sure that they'll plug someone in in Saturday's place and that guy will play just fine.
