Saturday says Manning will play in 2012

Jeff Saturday told the NFL Network that expects Peyton Manning will suit up, hopefully in Indianapolis, in 2012:

“I talk to him regularly,” Saturday said. “I love 18. He’s my guy so I communicate with him regularly. He’s doing his deal and he’s getting ready and he’ll be playing football. I can assure you of that.”

So all of Manning’s friends, in the NFL and in the media, seem to agree on the public message: Manning will be good to go. But where will he go? On that score, Saturday said he dosen’t know anything more than anyone else.

“I hope it’s here,” Saturday said. “But he’ll be playing somewhere. Absolutely.”

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.
