After watching the last game I noticed that Manning was not as crisp with his passes. Do you guys think that with all the rehab and the tons of passes he did to get his arm ready, did he overdo it? I hope not, but his passes against KC were not what I hoped for. Is it possible that it was just an aberration or is he hitting " the wall"?

I'd say his arm is tired like every QB, not because he's Peyton Manning.

I feel he hasn't had much zip on his passes all season. He has still been very effective. Nothing to see here...

I think he was a bit rattled from the hit he took, even though he passed the concussion test.

I wouldn't say tired but the timing has been off the last few weeks.

I think he's just tired of getting hit. After a nice 4 game stretch of being upright all game, SD and KC hit him pretty good.

In addition to the last two games the only other times this year he's had a passer rating below 100 he got hit 6 times in each.

Peyton has never had a cannon and he has always thrown some wobbly ducks, but they get where they need to go so i'm not worried.

Have you watched him play?

Bob, I have all the respect in the world for you but Peyton is fine.

Just speaking as a fan, isn't it nice to have this kind of a problem? Remember when we used to argue about things like to what degree Mac was going to f*** up our game plan, play-calling, the draft or what Pats has-been he was going to sign?

Now we're asking whether or not our HOF QB has a tired arm. Hell, I'm thankful we have a QB who can a) throw the ball more than 5 yards downfield and b) get the ball within 5 yards of the intended receiver.

It's a good time to be a Broncos fan, guys, let's enjoy it.

A good look at Peyton's statistics:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324407504578185590994669674.html

Random quotes:

Quote:
Defenses are blitzing Manning 26% more often that they did in the season before his surgeries. This season, teams are sending five or more defenders after him on 31.6% of all occasions when he drops back to pass. That makes poor gimpy Peyton the No. 8 most-blitzed quarterback in the league. In 2010, he was third to last.


Quote:
The numbers clearly show that Manning is nearly the same or better in most categories. His average completion travels 6.91 yards in the air, up from 6.26 in 2010. His average pass travels 8.44 yards, down a hair from the 8.7 he posted in his last season.


Quote:
Manning has averaged 14.7 yards per attempt on these long passes, compared with 9.8 in 2010, and he's completing 44.9% of them compared with 26% in 2010. The idea that he'd be a "dink-and-dunk" passer has been officially put to rest, since 68.5% of his passes through 14 games were thrown within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, close to his career average.

That strike to Decker against Baltimore makes me think he's fine.

He still looks 6'5 with a laser rocket arm to me. You guys could give prime a shot at QB though.
