In my opinion the only thing that the superstar of all QB's can do for his team this year...Lie, fake, and bamboozal his coaches, teammates, fans, columnists, ESPN, bloggers etc. into thinking that he may come back this year and if and only if the Colts can get to 500 by that time...he will push them into playoffs. Initially it was said 3 months was the earliest he could recover. I'd like Peyton to make us believe that he will be back.
This team is mentally beaten. They need something to play for and the return of the real deal QB might be the only thing left. Look, I think Kerry Collins will play well after week 3...so the combo of a win in week 4 and rumors that Peyton appears to be on schedule to return in November/ early December MAY be enough to salvage the season.
Hey- do you have a better plan?
