If you’re anything like us, the idea of Peyton Manning in
an Arizona Cardinals uniform is as great as it is far-
After all, if Manning is healthy and if the
Colts decide to cut him, he would only come to the desert
if he wants to and, even then, only if the
team decides it doesn’t want to continue with Kevin Kolb.
In other words, plenty has to happen between now and the
production of No. 18 Manning jerseys in Cardinal Red.

than shock value.
“He doesn’t say things unless he has sources that give him
good information,” Jaworski added. “When he comes out with
a story there’s some validity to it.”
