08:02 AM ET 12.07 | The Colts will soon have more than one big decision on their hands. Put Archie Manning in the camp that doesn't believe it's a good idea for [Indianapolis] to move forward with both Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck of their roster. "I doubt if either one wants to play on the same team," Archie said Tuesday during an appearance on FOX Sports Radio. ... Archie seemed to indicate the Colts' best option is to choose between his son and Luck. As far as carrying both on the 2012 roster, he said, "I don't think it'd necessarily be great for either one. I think Andrew's the type of mature player ... he can walk right in. I mean, these other three or four guys that are playing this year, (if) they can walk in and contribute, Andrew can, too."

Archie, would you be so kind as to shut your flan hole. Thank you.

A guy named Luck playing for a team with horse shoes on their helmets. That's fate.

The difference between Peyton and Andrew is that Andrew may be able to walk (and feed himself) after playing next season

sad isn't it.

He'll be wearing a star on his helmet next season. JJ might have to forego some additional plastic surgery however. LOL

The team that drafted Manning instead of Ryan Leaf dumps Manning for the next Ryan Leaf. That's fate, too.

Mine was cut after I got my first paper route at 15...

If Peyton's injury keeps him from playing, draft Luck and hire Peyton as QB coach.

Gee maybe the Colts are willing to work a trade so they can get one of the other QB's and use the extra draft picks to rebuild other parts of the team?

That would be smart - the problem is it seems Peyton Manning is the only one that can run the offense they have -so if you clipboard say Matt Barkley he may not fit when the time comes and you have to change the whole scheme, which is going to have some growing pains.
