Manning is a statue 

Irsay announced the tribute in a press conference today

In the most proper way to honor Peyton Manning's legendary mobility out of the pocket, a statue will be built in his honor (WE KID BECAUSE WE LOVE) outside of Lucas Oil Stadium. Additionally, no Colt will ever the number 18 again, and Indiana schoolchildren will count to 20 thusly:

"16, 17, MANNING, 19, 20." (H/T Lou Harry and Kevin Cole for their thread of jokes on Facebook.)

Your child's previous ISTEP scores will not be affected.
