Peyton Manning's neck is feeling better

P. Manning.jpgSpeaking for the first time at length this offseason, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning said Friday he’s happy to have undergone neck surgery.  (Florio wonders if he got bolt implants.)

“I’m very relieved of that and I no longer have to get the treatment
that I was having to get for the past four years,” Manning said at Colts minicamp, as transcribed by ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky.  “Treatment was
time as much as anything, manual traction trying to relieve some things.
Three times a day about 25 minutes apiece just got to be tough, very
time consuming.”

Amazingly, no one even knew Manning had neck issues before.  Our handy Rotoworld database last mentions a neck injury in 2006 when his helmet was ripped off during a game.  The Colts didn’t mention the injury since.

Manning says he’s not worried about a Super Bowl hangover or his missing teammates.  He was back at practice Friday, so the injury shouldn’t get in his way any longer.

“I don’t really get into the tendencies,” he said. “I think it’s all
about how you handle it as a team. I think we’ve had another outstanding
offseason. Come training camp time we expect everybody to be here.”

    The weight of Peyton’s enormous noggin had begun to take its toll.

    Glad to see his neck is feeling better. Did he get that gag reflex fixed though?

    Hey, I stopped making him service me months ago so it’s not my fault!

    Unoriginal head size comment.

    Tom Brady’s neck is much, much better looking than Manning’s. True.

    I don’t think the surgery is going to help the post season choke-jobs.

    Jug Head and a skinny neck…………..that will do it everytime…..Still a pretty damn good QB though…

    You mean for 3 years Lurch has been playing with a neck injury WHICH THE COLTS OBVIOUSLY KNEW ABOUT, as he was getting treatment 3 times a day, and it never made it to the injury report? Isn’t that cheating, according to all the numbnuts who troll these boards?
    And where is Florio’s righteous indignation, as he constantly bashes the Patriots for not being open enough with their injury report??
    Citizens Arrest!

    Why didn’t he have neck surgery done when he had his minor knee thing done before 2008? Makes no sense. He wouldn’t have missed any gametime either way.

    His neck was really hurt when he was watching Porter return the int for a TD in the Super Bowl!

    Peyton’s birthday delivery room experience:
    ‘keep pushing, Mrs. Manning, he’s crowning!!!……
    still crowning……..still crowning………goddamn this kid’s got a huge head!’
    just kidding, Peyton Manning is a role model to all people with hydrocephaly– that one of their own could be so successful.

    The choking sensation is gradually subsiding.

    Peyton and Eli… both have rings… both were Superbowl MVPs.
    Eat that Manning haters.

    Does this mean he’ll be able to dance on Saturday Night Live and “cut that meat” at full speed again?

    I’m embarrassed to read Smith’s grammar.
    I think this is the second time he’s made the following mistake:
    “The Colts didn’t mention the injury since.”
    The correct form is” “The Colts haven’t mentioned the injury since.”

    4 MVPs and 1 SB ring over Grossman and the Bears…
    i dont see what other people see in him and say he is the g.o.at.
    he chokes way toooooo many times
    hes not even the best QB in his era. Brady is #1 , he’s #2
    if he had any balls he would gone for the perfect record, F what the organization and or coach thinks, I would have demanded to go for history, atleast Brady went for it…
    he let Marvin Harrison to get released, way to stick up for your “guy”
    and he voted for George W. Bush…twice… yeah both times.
    he’s whack, and if your not from tennessee or indy, i dont see how you can be a fan of this guy
    hes the opposite of greatness, if you appreciate greatness in a QB, then Brady has to be your guy
    he won 3 rings with the worst talented group of Wide receivers, not to mention he’s 1 tyree catch and or samuel pick away from having the greatest team of all time, which they are anyways, the eye test tells you that… forget the SB, fluke
    and I hate the patriots with a passion, this is a patriot hater to the max speaking, but I still speak the truth
    Manning you let everyone down this year in the SB, you dont desearve any commercials, endorsements, fans,
    Bradys still got more rings then his family combined, thats 3 careers against 1.

    Why don’t you learn how to spell the word that you’re trying to be a smart ass about, it’s spelled summarize,so before you call anyone names about how they post best check your own family tree for bastards, my guess is that you are the one.
