Default Peyton Manning to miss season?

Wow, huge story: http://www.cbssports.com/#!/nfl/stor...nother-surgery

Peyton has been an iron man his career, not missing a game in years. But three neck surgeries is serious, and the recovery time puts him into December. What's the point in coming back then, unless they're in playoff contention? It'll be interesting to see how the Colts fare without Manning. I think it won't be pretty. I can't believe the media is pretending it'll be okay with Kerry "Grandpa" Collins.

Anthony is on a distinguished road

Why the Colts didn't snap up David Garrard - who obviously knows the division inside and out - is a mystery.

But the way this will likely shake out is that by the time Peyton Manning is ready to come back, the Colts will be so far behind in the division and/or playoff race that there will be no point in doing so (see Tony Romo last year); therefore he will in fact miss the entire season - and the Colts could conceivably be on the horns of a most interesting dilemma next spring, if they are in a position to draft Andrew Luck - a very, very real possibility.
