Phil B: Why is the Manning decision taking so long?

Are we there yet?

Are we there yet?

Phillip B. Wilson has 10 theories on why there has been no announced decision regarding Peyton Manning’s future with the Indianapolis Colts:

1.) Irsay is putting off releasing Manning in hopes the QB will realize he should retire. That’s not going to happen, but Irsay couldn’t be blamed for wanting to take as much time as possible in case Manning has an epiphany and realizes it’s the smart move.

Those ten guesses about the delay show just how confusing this situation has become when in fact it should be dead simple.
