As I drive to and from work each day I hear more and more from sports radio about how the writing is on the wall. From Scherleth to Greeny to JMV to Kravitz the all hint or for some, state the same thing. With Pagano as the coach and Irsay cleaning house, Peyton is gone. Well I tend to disagree. Sure Irsay cleaned house and fired just about everyone then hired Grigson and Pagano. Two names they didn't fire were Clyde Christianson, and Jim Bob Cooter. Why would they do that? Simple, Peyton isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Why would they keep Clyde and Cooter if they were going to release Manning? I guess the talking heads are right, the writing is on the wall. But it's in braille. Which they cant read.
Irsay is too smart of an owner and too smart of a fan to let Manning walk out of Indy anytime soon. In Irsay's mind there are only two options.
1. March 8th comes and goes, see ya at camp 18.
2. Manning retires.
There is no other option.
