Tony Dungy won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning as his quarterback. While Dungy has moved on from coaching and took a job with NBC Sports as an analyst, is he now advising his former team to also consider parting ways with their best player in franchise history?
Manning has not played one down this season in Indianapolis following three neck surgeries in less than a year and a half. It is expected that he will not suit up at all this season, as it makes no sense to bring him back early with a team who may not be able to boast about any wins before he takes the field again. But he still signed a five year deal with the Colts prior to the 2011 NFL season, and he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2012 season.
So why did Dungy tell his former team to consider trading away their franchise quarterback and team leader for the past 13 seasons?
The Colts are battling it out with a handful of other really bad teams, including the Miam...

Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy were once known in their professions as great winners who always fell just short of being champions. You'd think each would be grateful to the other for changing that reputation by winning Super Bowl XLI in 2007. Dungy showed business isn't personal, though, when he reportedly told NBC analyst Dan Patrick on Sunday that he would consider trading...
Editor's note: Will O'Toole contributed the following cartoon to NESN.com. From 2003-10, the Indianapolis Colts were without question one of the best teams in the NFL. That was almost entirely thanks to Peyton Manning, who led the Colts to a 99-29 record and one Super Bowl win. Without Manning, the Colts are just plain terrible. They're 0-6, have been outscored 163-104...
The biggest hit to Andrew Luck's Heisman Trophy campaign might come from his own teammates.
Stanford's running game has quietly been one of the nation's best the past few years despite often being overshadowed by Luck's passing. But after setting a school record with 446 yards rushing in a 65-21 throttling of former No. 22 Washington, the Cardinal running backs now...
The Miami Dolphins are 0-5. In no sport is that a good way to start a season, especially in the NFL, where teams don’t have the luxury of needlessly long seasons like the NBA and MLB. So it goes without saying that as the New England Patriots have once again established themselves as the standard in the AFC East, and the Buffalo Bills have proven that a franchise can climb out...
The Indianapolis Colts at the New Orleans Saints. It was being billed at the beginning of the 2011 season as the rematch of Super Bowl XLIV. With Indianapolis now bearing an 0-6 record and Peyton Manning presumably sitting in a suite inside the Superdome for this particular matchup, it becomes something well short of any kind of a real rematch on second thought.
The Saints, meanwhile...
He can throw the rock on the hardwood as well. Just check out what he does in this McDonald’s parody of Jordan v Bird featuring Stanford hoops stars Josh Owens and Dwight Powell.
Got to love Mark Madsen coming in and stealing the burrito in the end.
Jason Green gives us 5 reasons why the Washington Huskies were defeated by the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday, October 22nd, 2011. To start Stanford RB Stepfan Taylor rushed for 138 yards with a TD and Tyler Gaffney rushed for 117 yards and 1 TD and each averaged over 13 yards per carry. Heisman favorite Andrew Luck had a great game too.
