There will probably never be a 'closing of the book' on Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, but given that the Andrew Luck era will officially begin on Thursday night, now is as good a time as any for one more look at the decision to let Manning walk.
A reader recently requested that I go back and reexamine the predictions I made in the 'Old Manning' piece I wrote before...
Denver Broncos wide receiver Andre Caldwell has been very impressed with how quarterback Peyton Manning has been “leading everything” so far during OTA’s.
“He’s literally leading everything. He’s setting us up, putting us in the right positions. He’s not running the drills — definitely he and [Eric] Decker go hand-in-hand with that — but he’s pretty much the...
