Stokley: Manning probably should have rested down the stretch

Stokley: At Season’s End, Manning’s ‘Bad Was Really Bad’

“That’s just not his mentality. It’s not what he does. That’s why he’s out there in practice every day. He feels like he needs to be out there for the team, for himself…You look back and say ‘He probably should have taken some time off’ but it’s hard to do it.”

If Peyton really did have a torn quad or two, as has been reported, was a week or two really going to make any difference in his performance?
