The man who believes he lost his job in Indianapolis for not having a better Plan B behind Peyton Manning thinks that Peyton will be someone’s Plan A again soon.
Former Colts Vice Chairman Bill Polian told ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption (via NFL.com) that Manning will return to football “at a high level.”
Polian contradicted reports that Peyton hasn’t been able to throw effectively.
“It’s marked [improvement] from where he was back in September,” Polian said regarding Peyton’s arm strength in December, when Polian last observed Manning. “He threw it accurately, he threw it with a good, tight spiral, and he threw it with velocity. Generally, he looked like a pretty confident quarterback out there.”
What’s definitely not that far off is the date by which the Colts will have to decide whether to pay Peyton another $28 million or cut him loose.
