Peyton Manning never ceases to amaze me

Postby confused_jake » Sun Oct 29, 2006 7:34 pm

This week i was questioning whether or not to bench manning for grossman because of their matchups. With the help of the cafe, i started manning. Grossman had an amazing game, 252 yards 3 TDs and i started to regret starting Manning. So what does he do? throws for 345 yards and 3 TDs.

Peyton Manning ceases to amaze me in the playoffs, year after year, after year, after year..........but during the season he's a great fantasy producer so I agree with you......

He never ceases to amaze me either, he will be very, very confused in Foxboro next week and then again in the playoffs.

I knew he was a must start, He's a smart QB and would find weakness in that D. And I preached it.

Not to gloat... :-b

The guy is a machine out there. He held the Broncos Defense in the palm of his hand out there today. They got no pressure on him all day. The only way you can even come close to beating them is to pressure him and hope for some tipped balls at the line to force some TO's.

The Broncos played a hell of a game out there, yet they did nothing to stop Peyton. The Broncos offense has nothing to regret in this game, they did all they could...

It's interesting though, the Broncos shut the Colts down in the first half to the tune of 2 Viniateri FGs.. and they showed the NFL how you can at least conatin the Colts.

The answer: make the drive the field in 12-15 plays.. If they don't score quick, you have more chances to let them make the mistake and end their own drive. Don't try to overblitz them, because they'll kill you with the big play.

The second part: Keep the ball and run the ball to chew up clock. Don't let the Colts get too many possesions, the less posessions they have, and the more their offesne feels pressured to do something when they have the ball.. Plus the weakest part of Indy's team is their run D

Easier said than done my friend. If Peyton is playing well, no defense in the NFL can stop that Indy offense. As teams saw last year, the only possible chance you have at beating Indy is to go after Manning all game long. It's the way both the Chargers and the Steelers beat them last year, but if you can't generate a good enough pass rush to get after Manning, you're going to struggle big time to slow him down.

I hope he'll be as confused in Foxboro as he was last year.

You are absolutely right about last year. However this year's Pats team is way ahead of where they were last year and have less injuries.

Peyton will show his true colors against the Pats, just like he always did against Florida in college.
