Kuharsky: Respect Manning

Kuharsky says if the Colts intend to show Peyton Manning the door they should do it the right way:

Why pretend like there is a possibility of keeping him? Irsay should sit down with Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano, make sure they’re all still cool with what they certainly discussed in recent interviews, and then step forward and do the right thing: tell Manning they are moving on and ask him how he’d like it to play out to be most comfortable. Then honor him appropriately as they show him the door. 

It’s awkward for sure. Don’t behave as you did today — failing to mention Manning by name for a long while at Pagano’s introductory news conference — to make it even more so.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
