Does Peyton Manning really have a serious neck injury or is he faking it? He doesn't have a whole lot of years left either way. Ok, lets say he does have the neck problems(for the record I'm pretty sure it's legit), then management might be looking towards the future and Andrew Luck. A neck injury is no joke, but maybe they use it as an excuse to keep Manning out all year and throw their season. Look, this is just a suggestion of a conspiracy theory, and I don't REALLY believe this is happening, but you have to admit that it might be a possibility.
