The Colts can move on, too. There's a new coach, new people in the front office, and soon there will be a new team on the field. Fans can move on, too, with the focus shifting from Manning's health to the tantalizing possibility that Luck will be the Colts' next superstar quarterback.
It is, as Manning says, the reality of playing in the NFL. Someone is always going to be looking for your job, and someday someone will get it.
Doesn't matter if you salvaged a franchise. Doesn't matter if you built a stadium.
Nothing personal. Just business.
