It's not like he hasn't done this before, and the Colts always seem to beat the Broncs lately. But the media is acting like this is some 'eye opening' experience.
I agree completely. This is what I was saying before the game. If you can't hit Manning, you will lose. Can it be any simpler? Everything he does is timing. Phil Simms said it in the booth. The ball is gone before the WR breaks. Manning, Harrison and Wayne practice it over an over and over. If you can't interrupt the timing, you're toast. It ain't rocket science.
