View Full Version : Peyton Manning airs out deep passes during practice

Peyton Manning is finally getting to know just what Broncomania is all about.

Under the gaze of another large herd of media for today's organized team activity, every throw by Manning was dutifully chronicled in notebooks. When a reporter noted a missed throw to Demarius Thomas, Manning said: "I've never had to comment on incompletions at practice before. This is new to me."

Today, the Broncos stressed the deep ball at the OTA. Manning, who prefers to call such passes "shots", frequently threw deep passes with varied success. But Manning said if any one of five deep throws succeeds in game situations, "that's a great thing."

When asked how he's feeling at throwing long passes again, Manning said: "It's still an ongoing for me, it still is. I still have work to do in my rehab, and that's the good thing about these OTAs — you can really see where you are on certain types of plays, and you're learning a lot.

"Every day, you have a point of emphasis, whether it's a screen day or a play-action day, goal-line, red-zone, so today was kind of a deep ball, shots down the field. I wish we could have more of these OTAs, but the limited practice time we have together, you've got to take advantage of it. It's only going to make us better."

Broncos coach John Fox said Manning is "doing tremendous. Our passing game is way far along than it was last year, obviously, because we weren't even here."

I was thinking the exact same thing. I hate some of these new rules limiting the amount of practice time.

they said that Peyton was overthrowing all of his deep balls today at OTAs. I think the fear was that he wouldn't have the arm strength and would underthrow his receivers. I wonder if it's a matter of adjusting back to what his arm can do. Perhaps he's overcompensating right now.

Anyway, much happier to hear overthrowing reports than underthrowing.

I definitely agree with the part underlined. It doesn't worry me too much. He spent a year recovering with limited physical activity, and he spend several years perfecting his timing with other receivers. I have faith that this won't be an issue.

Yeah, but most teams are coming back from the same old QB and the same old system from the year before. The Broncos have a future HoF QB under center now and has raised a new hope in Denver. I'm sure that 30 other teams are glad of the fewer OTA's.

A lot of players will be happy there's less practice time, regardless of what they say. You just know with Manning that he means it. He would probably practice every day leading up to the season if he could.

it will come in time, u have to take into consideration that he hasnt played with these guys and they need some time to adjust and get some continuity with each other. it will take time

I don't think this says much for his arm strength at all, he's throwing in thin air, if you didn't expect him to be able to throw it 60 yards here then you must have thought his arm fell off. Him overthrowing receivers just means that he has to get used to throwing here.

Someone could medically or scientifically prove that his arm is as good or even as better than it was, and he's going to talk about improving, and working on things.

It is just how he is wired.

If he were a baseball pitcher and threw a perfect game with 15 strikeouts, he would have hoped for 18 to 20.

Nerves regenerate at a rate of about 1 millimeter per day. Apparently if he had to fully regenerate the nerves from his neck all the way to his hand, for someone of Peyton's height, it would take 1 year.

Obviously, we don't know how much of the nerves he needs to regenerate but it's not a quick process.

Apparently 6 months ago he couldn't even throw the ball so he has come a very long way since then.

Although you're right about nerve growth
..your math is pretty off lol but luckily that's not how far the nerve has to regenerate so that's why he is doin well

Sorry I think it was from neck to triceps, not to the hand.

Peyton Manning shows he can still throw the deep ball

Looking fully armed, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning airs it out Monday at Dove Valley team headquarters. "That's probably what you all were looking for," wide receiver Brandon Stokley said to reporters later. (John Leyba, The Denver Post)

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning answered lingering questions about his post-neck surgery arm strength as he routinely hurled the ball far down the field during Monday's organized team activity.

Twice, Manning threw the ball too hard and too far past wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, and once more he overshot tight end Joel Dreessen on a play that, in a game, would have resulted in a pass-interference call.

Never have incompletions looked so good.

For a couple of weeks now, observers at practice have seen Manning throw short, seen him throw quick. He has thrown to his right, to his left and over the middle, thrown check-down and play-action passes.

Those deep passes had been the missing piece in the previous practices open to the media.

As the Broncos' offense ran through a two-minute drill, Manning launched a deep throw to wide receiver Brandon Stokley, who beat triple coverage and dived to make the catch a few yards shy of the end zone. Back at the line of scrimmage, the rest of the offensive players broke into loud cheers.

"It was a better throw than anything else," Stokley said.

Stokley should know. After all, it was Stokley who was on the receiving end of Manning's career-long touchdown pass — 87 yards in a playoff game against the Broncos in January 2004.

"That's probably what you all were looking for. 'OK, doesn't matter if it's completed, he overthrew it, so his arm strength must be OK,' " Stokley said. "Nobody out there among us, we're not thinking about his arm strength. He's made all those throws, so we're not even thinking about that stuff."

His receivers might not be concerned, but Manning said Monday he is continuing to build himself back to full strength. Manning has had four surgical procedures on his neck since 2010, including a spinal fusion last September. He said after signing with the Broncos in March that his post-surgery concerns were not specifically about how his neck would heal, but about how he would regain his strength in his arm.

Manning and Broncos trainer Steve Antonopulos have concocted a plan for how many throws Manning makes each practice session, although through each of the three practices that have been open to the media, Manning has appeared to handle nearly all of the first-team repetitions. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said neither the coaches nor the training staff has put limits on the types or distances of throws Manning attempts in practice.

Manning said he will continue to stick to some sort of throwing schedule throughout the rest of the offseason and likely into training camp and the regular season.

"It's an ongoing process for me," Manning said. "It still is part of trying to get comfortable. I still have work to do in my rehab, and that's the good thing about these OTAs. You really see where you are on certain plays because you are making different types of throws and you're learning a lot, and you can know what to continue to work on even harder in your rehab and some things you may just not quite be ready for yet."

Stretching the defense

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw plenty of deep passes Monday in the practice that was open to the media. As he returns to the field in 2012, will Manning be able to join these NFL quarterbacks who were the best at throwing the deep ball last season? Broncos writer Lindsay H. Jones takes a look:

Tom Brady, Patriots: Even without a prototypical deep-threat wide receiver, no quarterback completed more passes longer than 20 yards last season than Brady, who had 71. He had nine more in the playoffs.

Drew Brees, Saints: Plenty of Brees' 5,476 yards last season came via the deep pass, with 69 completions longer than 20 yards. In two playoff games, Brees had 11 completions longer than 40 yards.

Aaron Rodgers, Packers: Rodgers led NFL quarterbacks with an average of 9.2 yards per attempt last season. He had 14 completions longer than 40 yards.

Eli Manning, Giants: Peyton's younger brother had more completions longer than 40 yards last season than any other quarterback. Everyone saw in the Super Bowl just how accurate Eli can be when throwing deep.

Matthew Stafford, Lions: Stafford has the arm strength and a wide receiver, Calvin Johnson, who can terrify a secondary. Stafford had 16 completions longer than 40 yards in the regular season and six more in the playoffs.

Just from that last post from BSD and other threads I have read the last few weeks, I have no doubt that Manning will be fine passing wise. Still a bit of fright by his first sack but otherwise I feel goooooood!! and I knew that I would now!! :D

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BRONCOS!!!!!:goz:
