Is Peyton really dink and dunk? DT leads the league in receptions over 25 yards. Granted over the first few games the attempts weren't very deep, but that has changed in the last month

This is John Clayton being his normal ****head self. I'm surprised he didn't say SD was better than us too.

Well, actually I thought the article was pretty amusing. At least it wasn't the same old ****. Plus I like hear the band Slayer be mentioned as well as the other bands.

I actually posted in the talk back section of the article ripping Clayton for this ill informed statement. Peyton currently leads the league with 8.23 yards per pass attempt which is also the second highest of his career. At the time of this article he also led the league in completions of 20 yards or greater with 37. The fact is, Peyton appears to be dinking and dunking less than he did in his previous years.

Well to be fair a lot of Manning's passes are not going very far. The 80 yard pass to Thomas for instance. ALso the 30 yarder to Decker last week was a simple crossing pattern. I do agree though the term dink and dunk was a very poor choice of words.

I repeat. His 8.23 yards per attempt is the second highest of his career. Peyton has always utilized the short passing game (or dinking and dunking as Clayton calls it) Clayton's implication is that he is utilizing it more heavily this year when the numbers clearly contradict his assertion.

And yes, Thomas, Decker, ect. have at times broken for some big gains after the catch to raise that number. But Peyton is currently completing over 55% of his pass attempts that travel at least 20 yards through the air. That is another number that is up there with his career best. Dude is killing all phases of the passing game this year and if anything is more balanced between short/intermediary/long passing than he has ever been. For Clayton to claim otherwise is just a staggering display of ignorance.

It's offensive that a team led be Jay Cutler gets compared to a band led by Jimmy Paige.

Interesting there was no band for the Broncos... I'm thinking outlaw country would be some thing like Johnny Cash.

gotta give him credit for this line:

Judas Priest, will you stop settling for field goals?
