ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Thanks to the musings of his former owner, Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis this week has turned into something less than the warm-and-fuzzy homecoming it could have been.
If any of that bothers No. 18, it's not showing.
Dictating the terms of his Wednesday news conference as effectively as he orchestrates his offense from the line of scrimmage, Manning paid virtually no heed to this week's comments from Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Manning said he had no comment when asked for his reaction to Irsay's interview earlier this week when he said he had to give up the old Indy offense's ''Star Wars'' numbers in a quest for more Super Bowl rings.
On Sunday, Manning returns to Indianapolis for his first game as a visitor.
