    If true that would be crazy, but I still just don't believe it.

    Hope it's not true- will believe it when I hear it from Manning directly.

    Long term health over being crippled...i think one of their Brother is Wheel Chair Bound. I think Peyton looked at that and probably say i wouldn't want to be in that situation. He will be a HOFer and he already won the Big one. No Shame in walking away while you can. It's not like he won't ever get hit again playing in the NFL...He was one of the Best and a pleasure to watch.

    IF this is true, I think it is the right thing for Manning to do. He doesn't need to put his health and well being in jeopardy to continue playing. Plus, IF this is true, you have to wonder if the firing of Caldwell and the release of the Polian's played into his decision.

    IF it's true, GL to you Peyton, and get into acting!

    PM already has more money than god.

    He has a wife that loves him

    He has two very small children

    He has had 3 neck surgeries

    His standing in Indy and in NFL history is secure

    He has MVPs and a Super Bowl.

    He has nothing left to prove.

    He is looking at a rebuilding situation in Indy.

    Other than playing because he loves it, retiring makes a lot of sense to me.

    As formidable a competitor he was, I think this is a very wise move. He has got to be thinking about life after football and where your neck is concerned, it is never worth it.

    But he would leave a huge hole- that much is certain.

    Hope he'll do what's best for him in the long run. Gonna be weird not seeing him out there again if this is true, hope it's not.

    he'll just come out of retirement next year after camp to sign with somebody else in his division to get revenge on the colts.

    considering that twitter accounts are often hacked, though, I think we have to guess that this is likely not true

    Remember in the NBA when David Robinson got hurt and the San Antonio Spurs got the First Pick and selected Tim Duncan. Some Teams are just lucky like that. I would be somewhat strange seing Indy without a QB. The Pats should go after Pierre Garson in FA...he's the WR's we have been looking for.
