Obviously this is a huge blow of peyton manning proportions. In no way are we contending until PG makes a fully recovery physically and mentally.
While the injury was ugly and I still can't believe I'm typing these words. A broken leg imo is better than a blown out knee. Paul almost always jumps off of his left leg also.
As far as next season goes I rather just start almost all over and plan of still building around Paul. Do us and David West a favor and trade him to a contender with assets. This is also a plus for us in the Roys trade value department. That is if he can step up and be effective on offense. Trade him at the deadline to a playoff team for more assets or a pick. George Hill can stick around on his remaining 8 mil/yr contract to fill out the team. Who knows if we come out flat and things go down quick with the proposed draft changes maybe we get a lottery pick. I know this may all seem crazy but its what we need to do at this point. We aren't winning a championship in the next 3 years IMO or possibly in the next 5. The NBA is a b**** and its even harder for small market teams with a run of bad luck. What we can do is put ourselves in the position to be flexible with our capspace/roster once Paul comes back.
