"I hope I have enough eligibility left in me, I hope to be a part of that game down there in 2013."Peyton's response when asked about New Orleans hosting the Superbowl in 2013
This is really sad and it's further proof that Polian is a genius.
If you know him, whatever phase he’s in, he’s in it 100 percent and it’s an intense situation. Even during his rehab, it was an intense rehab. He attacks everything the same way. So, although it may have been a little different for him, the intensity level he displayed did not change. This year, it’s the same. Obviously, he’s back on his regular schedule and not having to deal with as many problems that he had in the offseason, but he’s coming along at his old pace. He works extremely hard. The thing we would like to be able to do is pull those reigns in, but that’s not part of his nature. He has an unblievable work ethic and great work habits, but he’s great for our young guys, to see how hard he works, how dedicated he is and how committed he is.Jim Caldwell on Manning's approach to the offseason via John Oesher and The Indy Football Report
He'll be on at 10:30am Eastern.
We'll try again some other time.
Owner Jim Irsay confirmed Wednesday he plans to bring back Moore and Mudd, each of whom retired last week because of concerns with the NFL's pension program. They are expected to return as consultants, perhaps by the start of training camp, which opens Aug. 2. ... According to Larry Kennan, executive director of the NFL coaches association, Mudd, 67, is under the impression a retired coach must wait six months from the time he files his retirement documents to assume a paid consultant's role. That would make it mid-November before he and Moore, 70, could return. It might be possible for them to return earlier as unpaid consultants until they were allowed to be added to the team's payroll.The Indy Star's Mike Chappell on when the Colts might expect Tom Moore and Howard Mudd to return as consultants to the team.

Can't say I'm surprised to hear that the Patriots could be the ideal landing spot for yet ANOTHER high profile free agent as they seem to be interested in anyone and everyone.
I'm from the West Coast, but Rhode Island is still considered New England, yes? Maybe Peyton is recruiting fans. Another example of how our QB is the most awesomest in the whole wide world!
Coach Caldwell gives a detailed explanation of what goes on during OTA's and touches on a few other topics.
In terms of what [Ed Johnson's] able to do for our defense, I think it has been proven that even in his first year, he played a pretty significant role in our front. We anticipate if everything goes according to plan and he can do the things he’s doing now to continue on this path that he will be able to help us somewhere down the road."Indy Football Report quotes Jim Caldwell, who says Ed Johnson deserved a second chance to return to the Colts.
