It has been well over a week now since Superbowl XLVI was played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 in a thrilling competition that ended with a hail Mary pass that was thrown incomplete into the back of the end zone.

Will he return to play for the Indianapolis Colts, or will he retire?
