08:06 AM ET 11.17 | According to his brother, we shouldn't count Peyton Manning out for 2011. [Eli] Manning indicated that older brother Peyton's recovery from neck surgery might allow him to return to the Indianapolis Colts before the end of this season. "Maybe he could be back this year," Eli told USA TODAY. "I don't know if that's the smart thing under the circumstances, but I expect him to be back next year." ... [The] Colts kept open the possibility that the four-time MVP could rejoin them by never placing him on injured reserve. Eli noted that he is very encouraged by the progress his brother is making from the first major injury to sideline him during his NFL career.

I guess Peyton wants to make sure Mr. Luck isn't competing for his job next year.

An off-topic note: I heard this week that our friend Count Dooku's cause of death was a heart attack. I hope this information brings a bit of closure to those of us who miss his humor, and were wondering what happened to him.

That means they qualify for posting on the daytime NFL threads.

That it does...

I hope Peyton recovers fully, but I am not sure he should return to the field if he does. The next injury could be catastrophic.
