Archie Manning said Andrew Luck and his son Peyton couldn’t play together only to later reverse course. Reggie Hayes is just as confused:
I don’t want to see Peyton Manning leave Indianapolis. I don’t know anyone who does. He’s the face of the franchise and in many ways the face of the NFL. But I also doubt he’d be too thrilled – if his health lets him continue his career – to be a one- or two-year mentor to Luck in some sort of farewell transition.
On the other hand, nearly every so-called NFL expert believes Luck is the next great quarterback and any team with a chance to build around him should start construction yesterday. The Colts have a head start, already demolishing this season with their historic implosion.
