    Peyton's footwork has always been like that, even in college.

    Don't worry about that guy, He's just a troll, not even a fan of the Broncos. not sure why he can't just go away....

    Ahhh...the ball wobbled since it was wet. Did anyone actually take that into account?

    Wet track, been a bit since his last game, etc..

    His arm looked fine. My wife, a die-hard Colts fans said he looks like Peyton.

    Hooray, beer!

    LOL....Manning held on to the ball to long? When Tebow was QB it was blame Tebow, now its blame the WRs. Anywhoo Manning has always had an average above average arm. He did drive us down the field...the int was both manning and stokleys fault it was thrown a bit behind, but stokley still should of caught it. Its been awhile give this some time its still weird seeing manning in a Broncos uniform its almost surreal....

    I wouldn't say it looked "weak" but I wouldn't quite say he looked like the pinnacle of Peyton Manning. Really, the only throw that got my attention was that weird wobbler across his body to Decker on the other side of the field. Thing really floated for a while and I thought it was picked. He followed that up a few minutes later with a lazer across the middle which looked pretty dang good.

    His arm will be fine. First meaningful throws in over a year.

    Mannings arm looked weaker than normal... surely not the laser rocket armed qb of the past.

    As has been pointed out already, everybody who has watched Manning play very much knows he often sets and resets his stance like his feet are jackhammers or that he is standing on a hot skillet. Happy feet refers to feet that are likely to run out of the pocket at the first sign of danger.
    Not the same thing at all. And if you think Manning was holding the ball longer than any other QB you have seen, it can only mean one of two things: the OL must have improved over 1000% since last year to allow him the extra time to do that, or else you are sadly mistaken in your observations about a quartetback well known for making the fastest decisions and having one of the quickest releases in football.

    The only reason he looked a bit slower is because I think we were all surprised at how extremely hard Osweiler threw. I have to say, I had very low expectations for the kid... but nobody on that team throws as hard as Oz. Not Weber, Hanie, or Peyton. I was blown away.

    Lmao. I see your quoting thr commercial, but he has never had a lazer rocket arm. He was rated the most cerebral qb of all time. Thats what makes Peyton so great. That and his work ethic. Guys a horse... pun intended.
    He looked like the Peyton I watched play in Indy all those years. He throws wobbly passes sometimes. Always has. But you better believe they hit their mark.

    he didn't have Brock cannon fire but he never has. I thought he looked okay except for the tipped passes, those are on Peyton

    Wrong. I get tired of repeating myself, but here. He put that pass to Stokley where he did so he didnt lead Stok to the saftey on a possible big hit. He had Stoks well being in mind on that one. I guarantee it. The Tamme tip.. happens.
