How many times has the guy proven it to us in the past? If we are down 3 TDs with 4 minutes left you were stupid if you turned off the tv (or left the stadium). Manning has proven time and time again that you should never close the curtain on him, no matter the odds. This injury is no different. Don't count him out. I don't care if he isn't 100% by the March 8 deadline. If I'm Irsay, I look back on history and bet the house that you will get a few more great years out of him.
The media, a significant portion of the fan base, and to an extent, this blog are ready to move on in the spirit of rebuilding with Andrew Luck. I don't care what they do with the draft pick, but #18 better be in a Colts uniform next year.
Somebody needs to put up a billboard in downtown Indy (Tim Tebow style) saying "We want Manning". Its ridiculous that some many people are willing to write him off so easily.
