The Indianapolis Colts today are announcing the release of quarterback Peyton Manning. Even if Manning gets his ARM strength back he still will never be the same.
What people are forgetting is that even before last season Manning was starting to decline. ESPN’s Ron Jaworski pointed out that Manning was losing speed on his passes.
Now, coming off neck surgery Manning’s arm strength will never be the same as once you mess them up they never fully come back. On top of that Manning will turn 36 years old, so even if he regains his arm strength other parts of his body will start breaking down.
In the end, the team that signs Manning is the biggest fool in the National Football League.
