Now that the 2012 NFL regular season has concluded, I feel obliged to offer an apology to several parties whose judgement I questioned prior to opening day.
Regardless of what happens going forward, their decisions have already provided positive returns.
Most people felt that Manning could have been treated better by the Colts. However, many of these people, myself included, had doubts about Manning's ability to rebound from multiple neck surgeries. The Broncos seemed like an odd choice as well. Houston, San Francisco, or Tennessee seemed like more reasonable destinations. All he did was lead the Broncos to the number one seed in the AFC. Good for him.
