As the Indianapolis Colts continue to showcase the fact that they are the worst team in the NFL and with the distinct possibility of being in the driver’s seat for Stanford QB Andrew Luck, veteran QB Peyton Manning‘s future remains uncertain. Last week, several analysts stated that they are hearing that Peyton Manning would never allow the Colts to draft Andrew Luck if he was indeed healthy, a ludicrous idea.

The Colts have the worst record in the NFL at 0-8, primarily due to the absence of Manning, a four-time NFL MVP who is sidelined following neck surgery. Indianapolis had made the playoffs nine straight seasons with Manning at quarterback.
The win-less Indianapolis Colts should draft Andrew Luck if they get the opportunity, Peyton Manning or no Peyton Manning. Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos is a "long way" from being a starting quarterback in the NFL. And Notre Dame should stay independent rather than join a conference.
Like everyone else, Eli Manning has heard the term, “Suck for Luck.” Winless teams are clamoring to draft Stanford uber-prospect Andrew Luck, and the Colts are one of them. Shoot, fans have ever started wearing Colts Luck jerseys to games… even though they still have a QB named Peyton Manning.
On a conference call today, I asked Eli what he thought when he hears about the Colts...
Few teams need one of its players more than Arsenal needs Robin van Persie.
