    Peyton Manning said “woe is me,” but “I’ve gotten over that”


    In his most extensive comments since he was sidelined by his second neck surgery of the year, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning acknowledged that he felt deep frustration when he first realized he would have to miss a game for the first time in his NFL career. But Manning said he’s over that now.

    “I walked around for a while angry, in a bad mood. . . . ‘Woe is me,’” Manning told the Indianapolis Star. “I’ve gotten over that. It doesn’t do any good. I’m learning to deal with it and trying to have a good attitude. I’m not walking around looking for any pity party.”

    What Manning is looking for right now is to go through his rehabilitation and be there to help Colts quarterback Kerry Collins.

    “I want to be a resource. I want to help,” Manning said. “You figure out the best way you can help and not overload Kerry with information. You give ideas.”

    Manning said he has no idea whether he’ll play this year or whether the Colts will end his season by putting him on injured reserve.

    “I’ve told Bill [Polian, the Colts' vice chairman] he has to deal with the roster,” Manning said. “If the season goes like it did last year, who knows? My obligation is to get healthy and help the team. What I’m learning about my injury is there is some unknowns. Such a large part of it is out of my hands.”

    Manning has no timetable to return and just wants to get his long-term health straightened out.

    “I’m off the clock as far as that goes,” Manning said. “I’m just trying to follow the doctors’ orders and get healthy.”

    I wonder if Manning is seeing the days of wearing a headset looming large. I wonder if he'll wear that headset on the sidelines as a coach or in the broadcast booth.
    Listening to Sirius NFL yesterday, they were talking of Manning calling college games on Saturday and pro games on Sunday. If anyone could do well, he could. I also think he'd make one hell of a coach with his habit of preparing so well and competetive nature. I think that would be more fulfilling for him than being a talking (five)head on TV. Maybe not as lucrative, but it's not like he needs the money.
    I see him playing a couple more seasons if he recovers from these procedures, but it's nearing the end of the Manning era in Indy.

    That sucks no matter what team you cheer for. I wish him a speedy and full recovery.

    I have heard that Manning is back to having neck problems accompanied by right arm problems........same symptoms that preceded his last surgery. Would not surprise me. I f true, could be an AFC game changer. Will try to get more specific details.

    This guy is clearly looking to drum up drama like the National Enquirer claiming Anna Nichole Smith had love child with extraterritorial being

    I think he has a bunch of sites running the ol' East side/West side sports gambling tout scam.

    This might be true, but Peyton experiencing delayed problems after his fusion would not be uncommon. All too often patients experience recurrent and chronically progressive symptoms related to the fusion ("normal" people.....not ones being knocked around by 300 pounders or someone performing tasks that require repetitive violent movements of the neck, shoulder and arms). Furthermore, in my earlier Peyton posts, I emphasized that it is common that the vertebral segments above and below those fused are already usually showing degenerative changes that also continue to progress with their own accompanying symptoms. When Steve Slaton returned from surgery, it was said that his performance suffered because of loss of confidence. This might have been true, but for the fact that there was good reason for this loss of confidence...........as I found out later when he went to Miami, he was actually experiencing continued symptoms.....something I suspected from the beginning. You might remember he was placed on IR by the Texans the end of the 2010 season due to a mysterious "shoulder injury." Funny how close the shoulder is to the neck........and Slaton was complaining of shoulder and neck pains prior to his surgery............

    Manning should retire immediately. Dude is first ballot HoF and should enjoy the rest of his life to take care of his neck.

    yes, retire, Peyton, retire... :evil:

    Has nobody stopped to think that the usual mediots if they even hinted there was a story behind this wouldn't be all over it by now? BSPN, Fox sports would have camera's angled out side of Mannings toilet waiting to get the inside scoop if this were the case

    so obviously there is nothing to see here!!! Peyton will be good to go for the 2013 season

    As long as he retires before December 22... (Although seriously if one wrong hit gives him a lifetime of agony he will wish he had listened to you).

    Come on, don't confuse him with Brett Favre and Tim Tebow.

    who's confusing him??? believe me if there was any truth to this stuff about Manning
    I'd be in full agreement bout retirement. walk away before you get carried off, but I
    do not see this as a issue.

    Besides Peyton knows what is good for him and would have announced by now
    his intent to retire from the game after having discussed things over with his
    family and doctor

    however if Denver wins it all this year and they got a good shot at it!! I might
    think about going out on top rather than trying to be a glory hound looking for
    a repeat in 2014

    OK he has surgery on his neck but nobody knows what this surgery was repairing? could have been something simple and we're ready to call for his retirement all ready. I mean
    I'm not saying surgery is not serious but let's wait till the details come out before
    avoiding jumping to conclusions

    My own posts concerning this last report never discussed "retirement." Only that his purported problems would be very consistent with a person with his previous neck history as a whole. IF he does indeed have these problems now, they could possibly be temporized. But it would not fare well to having a successful 2013 or a bright future.

    My retirement comments were in jest because a Manning-less Broncos is good for the Texans. Leave it to Cowboys troll to be unable to discern subject-related sarcasm.
