08:02 AM ET 02.09 | A Indianapolis Star story during the run-up to the Super Bowl paited an unsettled picture of Peyton Manning's future in Indianapolis. During a Wednesday appearance on "The Tony Kornheiser Show," [Bob Kravitz] talked about the he-said, he-said back-and-forth posturing by both camps and what it means for the future of Peyton and the Colts. ... "Andrew Luck has got to play, okay? It's not even about the $35 million anymore. I mean, the guy's arm is a noodle, he can't throw like an NFL quarterback, and by March 8, there's no way of knowing whether he's going to be ready or not." Wow. "Arm is a noodle" is nowhere near "been medically cleared to play." But that doesn't mean Manning won't be healthy at some point.

I figured this had to originate from the Indianapolis Star.

Right... A story about Gronkowski doing the Stanky Leg and ripping off other guys' shirts after a Super Bowl loss, would be much more appreciated.

"Arm is a noodle" is nowhere near "been medically cleared to play."

Why not? Being medically cleared has little to do with ability to play at a high level. It just means that you aren't likely to die or go down to broccoli level from the average hits in the average game.

I bet I'd be "medically cleared to play." However, my arm is probably more noodle-like than Peyton's.

Maybe they stayed at a Holiday Inn express.

I just saw on Time.com that WalMart is reassigning all their greeters to new duties. There goes my retirement plan.

Read Bob Kravitz for years. He is an attention w***e, which is his job but, he wants to be in the national media instead of local and will say anything to get there.
