]]>Because as a place to recover from injuries, the neck is more difficult of.

]]>Manning being out for the season isn’t going to answer any questions about his value compared to Brady’s. First of all there are too many variables, and even if there weren’t the math in your prediction makes the argument for Brady.

2007 Pats: 16 wins

2008 Pats: 11 wins, -5 wins

2010 Colts: 10 wins

2011 Colts: 6 wins (predicted) -4 wins

So as much as Colts fans love to say “Manning is more important because the Pats still won 11 games without Brady!” A drop-off of 5 wins is still huge. And I’d say Matt Cassel is worth 2 games over Kerry Collins, so even a 4-12 finish without Manning wouldn’t prove anything.

]]>- What would the Colts look like without Manning? My guess: 6-10, tops.

- Who means more to their team: Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? The Pats went 11-5 with Brady out for the season. The Colts could be out of playoff contention by week 10 if they drop all three divisional games, and at that point they might as well tank for Andrew Luck.

- How am I coping? The four B’s: blunts, broads, booze, and biscuits and gravy.
