Peyton Manning:DONE!??!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; In his mind, I'm sure he hasn't forgotten Cooper's career-ending condition. I think he will take every caution into consideration before playing again. I hope he makes the correct decision...I don't want to see him go out with a severe ...

He's done in Indy thats for sure,unless there is some miracle happening in the next few weeks . Then he will go to the highest bidder as hes not that fussed about winning at this point in his career .

I really hope that I am wrong, but I do believe Peyton Manning is done as an NFL player. I actually believe the stories that broke a couple of days ago that he is not regaining his arm strength, versus how good he feels today. I think he made his statements so that emphasis is not placed on him during this week. He knows this week belongs to Eli, and he is doing everything he can to keep it that way. In the end, however, I do believe we will get an announcement out of Peyton that he is hanging it up.

Maybe he can tutor Matty Lice in how to properly run the "no-huddle" offense without relieving oneself every time there´s even a hint of pressure.

Maybe if his dad can coach him up on that underhand pass he use to throw every now and then...it could add a year or two to his career.

This is the sad part of business in the NFL. But if it wasn't for that then we'd probably NEVER have won a SB.

If he ends up on any other team I am sure there is going to be a lot of people really cheering for him to win another ring.

If he never plays again... it would just be a very sad time. Unless we get him as offensive coordinator. LOL>

Agree. I had the same surgery in March 2011, except I had 2 discs removed with 5/6/7 fused. I have not been the same since. I was a 6 foot 240Lbs weightlifting machine, and played b-ball constantly . As soon as I had the surgery my entire right side deflated. Lost all strength in it. Now I'm around 215-220lbs, still have no feeling in my right hand and sometimes the initial excruciating pain in my neck down through my right tricep to my hand comes back. Haven't been able to do pushups, or anything since. My right arm feels like jello, and is half the size of my left. And I hate the hand shake now.

Yes, I know he's getting better care and medicine than I could ever hope for. It is not impossible but I just can't see how he can come back from this. Plus, in case you haven't noticed, he is all neck!

But like he and the doctors stated the actual procedure has already healed, it's the nerve regeneration that is in question...as with myself. There is no telling on how much or if it will ever get back to "prior damage" state.

I wish him all the luck in his rehabilitation, because I know how he feels and it sucks!

You mean you didn't leave the country to get stem-cell treatment? I guess we are gonna find out a thing or two about this new fangled medicine!

No matter what happens to him he will be in the H.O.F. and remembered as one of the greatest qb.'s to suit up and play the great American sport of football.
