Rick Herron, one of The Linemakers on Sporting News, is one of those skeptics.
“I have a lot of questions beyond the possibility of Manning just staying healthy all season,” says Herron, who ran sports books for the Las Vegas Hilton, Sands and Fremont casinos. “Missing an entire season is a big deal, and even when he was playing for the Colts, we started to see a decline from his former self as his interception totals went up for three consecutive years.”
Renowned Las Vegas odds maker Kenny White has concerns as well, but is very optimistic about the possibilities Manning brings to Denver.
“Manning immediately brings a 5 ½-point upgrade to the Broncos rating from what they had last year with Tim Tebow running the offense,” White says. “For the last decade he’s been one of the most important players in regards to a team rating. All you have to do is look at what happened to the Colts last season without him. It was about an 8 ½ to 9-point drop-off.”
Earlier this week, Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer said Smith, who participated in training camp and the preseason before he began serving his four-game suspension on Monday, would be ready to play against Washington if available.
Vilma's status was not as clear. His season-long suspension began before training camp and he has been trying to work his way back from offseason surgery on his left knee.
Saints players had just finished practice when they received word of the panel's ruling.
"It's huge," said Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins, a defensive captain. "Those are two huge leaders we've got. They're great players. We've got a talented team, but you add Will Smith and Jonathan Vilma, our talent level goes up that much. For our team, it's a break."
Even if Vilma could not play right away, Jenkins said his presence in the locker room and meetings would be valuable.
After being locked out, the NFL Referees Association accused the league of planning to lock them out all along rather than negotiate a new contract.
Furthermore, the referees contend that the lockout will jeopardize the safety of the players, and the integrity of the game, citing the fact that none of the replacement officials will come from the top college divisions and thus do not have enough experience to adjust to the speed of the NFL game and enforcing the various players' safety rules. The league has denied these claims, saying that they have negotiated in good faith.
Nevertheless the NFL Referees Association filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, accusing the league of unfair labor practices.
