Default P. Manning undergoes knee surgery

it will keep him out of camp and some exhibition games (4-6 weeks).

i guess this is just another way for an established veteran of getting out of the grueling camp (and prolonging ones career)

just ask m. strahan how important all the preseason stuff is worth.

however, a true "great" player might just rely on scoring HGH from a teammate to get over a 3 year chronic shoulder injury, to be there for his team.

HGH.... Yum!

Exactly Tony that was some good timing on his part right before training camp maybe old age is getting him and he can't handle it like he used to be able to do.

galax - That sounds far too much like wishful thinking. It just means Peyton won't be as mobile as he once was, lol.

Something like that would affect Big Ben far more than Peyton, because Big Ben has yet to learn how to be an good pocket passer.

If this was just about anyone else, the fans would be up in arms, but Peyton, Brady and a few others get a pass.

Ben's not a good pocket passer, eh?

Where do these kids come from?

Ben's much better on the move. He needs to make quicker reads in order to be a more effective pocket passer. When plays break down, there's no more dangerous QB than Ben. However, as a pure pocket passer, I stand by my statement. He needs work.

I'm sure Colts fans are far more concerened about Peyton's health than I would be. If it were DA or BQ, I'd show more concern. If it was Big Ben, I'd probably be more concerned, because then he'd be forced to learn more about pocket play.

Have no clue who that guy is, but that's not any name I've used on any sports forum. I've been using the "handle" of XFL2001FAN since...you guessed it, 2001.

LOL, it was amusing to a kid who was just 22 at the time. I enjoyed watching them race for the ball at the beginning of the game, I enjoyed the cheerleaders being far more involved with the fans. I enjoyed that these were guys playing more for the love of the game than for money (because they weren't getting paid near as much as their NFL counterparts.)

I'm becoming a real big fan of the AFL too. However, I don't feel the need to change my E-name after 7 years.

I watched a little bit of the XFL. It was ok. I think Tommy Maddox played for the XFL, no? I think Vince McMahon better stick to the WWE though. LOL
