Mile High Manning Fivehead Bandwagon #16
Incarcerated Bob, you rocked Broncos Country!
Thanks for the excitement Tim, good luck in the future!
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.
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.
In 4 career starts Rivers passer rating is 119.8 vs Broncos with an avg score of 39-13 and 69.6% completions for 960 yds and [B][COLOR="Blue"]8 TD's[/COLOR][/B] with only 2 Ints. Rivers increased his rating by 15.3 points between 06 and 07 (from 112.7 to 128.0). [U][B][COLOR="Red"]The Broncos should be more concerned about facing Rivers than Tom Brady.[/COLOR][/B][/U]
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.
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
