It was Peyton Manning, who kept answering the challenge play after play. They've got a great offense and will definitely be a team contending late this year. My hat goes off to them, and to Peyton Manning, the closest thing to John Elway in the game today.
Mentioning John Elway in the same sentence with that primadonna Payaton puts the taste of vomit in my mouth. Marino had fantastic WRs and could throw the ball all over the place too. He was never a champion. Not once. Manning played a team that had absolutely no pass rush whatsoever. He left the field without a single grass stain on his uniform. Take any QB in the NFL. Any one of them. Give them the WRs Payaton has. Give them the time Payaton had. Not a single pressure. Nothing. Let them not only look through three reads. Let them go back and start over again after the first three reads. They'll take you apart too.
The number one flaw of Mike Shanahan which he has proven year after year? He thinks he can win without a pass rush. He has believed this his entire career.
