“I talk to him regularly,” Saturday said. “I love 18. He’s my guy so I communicate with him regularly. He’s doing his deal and he’s getting ready and he’ll be playing football. I can assure you of that.”
So all of Manning’s friends, in the NFL and in the media, seem to agree on the public message: Manning will be good to go. But where will he go? On that score, Saturday said he dosen’t know anything more than anyone else.
“I hope it’s here,” Saturday said. “But he’ll be playing somewhere. Absolutely.”
No doubt the Colts are going to rebuild. But they have the rare opportunity to win while doing it, with keeping Manning at a cheaper rate and drafting Luck. They could also rebuild while being mediocre, which will be letting Manning go, and starting Luck from day one. Haven't we heard, "hello, you play to win the game." What will Irsay's choice be? To win or to lose?
