Colts to Start Season Without Peyton and Tressel?

Posted by

The Indianapolis Colts and Jim Tressel have agreed that he will sit out the first 6 games of the season due to his 5 game suspension he would’ve served had he not resigned as head coach from Ohio State. On one hand this is great; considering the NFL suspended Terrelle Pryor for the same 5 games he was due to miss. However, it’s completely stupid that their taking care of the NCAA’s work for them. Let them clean up their own mess. This is a slippery slope you’re getting into, because where do you draw the line. Do you ignore transgressions from the last two years; do you plan to punishment everyone going forward? Was this even discussed during the lockout and put in the CBA? There’s too much gray area for this enforcement to be a mainstay, especially considering Roger Goodell doesn’t like to follow any type of precedent with the decisions he makes.

The NFL world was abuzz after an Indianapolis radio host said that Peyton Manning would need a second neck surgery. It was later reported that no surgery has been planned, but he has been instructed to not practice. The issue is, the nerves in his neck are healing slower than expected, and it’s more a body heals when it heals type thing. From a person who has had numerous surgeries, I completely understand the healing process and when the rehab consist of sitting and waiting until the body lets you know it’s ready you can’t be too careful. When it just doesn’t’ feel right, you have to take a step back just so you don’t cause yourself more problems later. Hopefully it’s nothing serious because if he misses any significant time, the Texans will finally be able to climb atop the AFC South mountain.
