Bill Polian: Manning will be back in 2012

Following the Indianapolis Colts tenth straight loss of the season on Sunday,  their Vice Chairman Bill Polian indicated that quarterback Peyton Manning will be back with the Colts in 2012.

If Polian is so certain that Manning will be back next season,  does this mean the Colts don’t draft Andrew Luck?

Personally,  I believe the Colts will draft a quarterback first overall no matter if Manning is coming back or not.  The reality is that his career is winding down at the age of 35.

Even if Manning can play another few seasons,  they need to start planning for life after the future of hall of famer.
