Default Break it down: What Peyton Manning can do

Nothing we don't already know but a really fun read. Guy just gets into the defenses heads.

http://nfl.si.com/2012/03/20/break-i...sct=nfl_bf3_a3

Peyton Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. There’s simply no disputing that — unless you want to take it further and declare him the best QB to ever suit up in professional football.

His decision to sign with Denver has the potential to make that franchise a Super Bowl contender, assuming he is healthy. There just are not many quarterbacks out there who can do what Manning does or impact opposing defenses in the same ways that Manning can.

That statement is not aimed directly at Tim Tebow, but despite his popularity among the Denver fans, there is no comparison between his ability to direct an offense and Manning’s. In all aspects, aside from running the football, Manning has an edge over Tebow.

But since Manning has not actually played a down since the 2010 season, here’s a quick reminder of what he’s capable of, and specifically how he can help the Broncos:

When you think of Manning taking snaps for the Colts, most of the lasting images are of him in the shotgun. In reality, though, he worked from under center a decent amount with the Colts — something important to keep in mind as he heads to Denver, where there is a stable of solid running backs in place.

Can you imagine what the other teams defensive teams will look like in the 3rd and 4th quarter when Manning runs the no huddle and the "big eaters" can't get to the sideline to suck some oxygen.

If Peyton can run the "no huddle" here in Denver as well as he did in Indy, it'll be just like Warren Sapp said the other day regarding opposing defenses coming into Mile High, "you are dead in Denver."

One of the biggest aspects of Manning's game -and really hasn't been seen by any other QB ever, is his ablity to call a lot of the game at the line of scrimmage. In Indy, he called probably 60 to 70 % of the game at the line after reading defenses. His ablity to switch plays or call a play at the line after reading the defense provides a significant advantage especially in mile high when he can keep the pressure on defenses with no huddle and simple audible from run to pass and vice versa after the defense lines up.

We will have the ability to have our OC read defense and call the play. Teams won't be able to blitz us without paying. They better get pressure with 3 or 4 guys. Running game against nickle defense will be effective. Defense will have to choose the way they want to die. No huddle will be huge too.

Has anyone here ever been to a Colts game in Indy before? The fans are extremely quiet while the offense is on the field, and you get this eerie feeling like waiting for an execution or something. You could use the words "hear a pin drop." I remember looking around the stadium (old stadium) with 60,000 people and thinking that if I sneezed it would be the loudest thing in the building.

It will be interesting to see how the crowd responds to the Manning offense operating in Denver.

The question isn't "what can Payton manning do?" Its "what cam our wr, te, and rb do?" Because to tell you the truth I haven't seen Demaryius or Decker run the entire route tree .

you can look at this and say , Man MaGahee is going to have 2k , a runner like him with a QB like manning , more of a threat then Thomas and kellly of early 1990 Bills , But Manning loves the receiving back ...... Hope maGahee got the hands

You think 8-0 this year is possible? I was thinking 6-2 at home, 4-4 or 5-3 on the road.

Extremely quiet at Indy games when Peyton was on the field with the O! Been to one years ago...If Peyton can incorporate the no huddle here in denver and execute it successfully...opposing defenses better watch out. Alot of Peyton's skill and uniqueness is mentally and strategically

Demaryius Thomas running a skinny post against man coverage with Manning throwing him the ball will be deadly. It's pick your poison with Peyton. It's 3 and a short 4, what do you do as a defender? You can't substitute because he's right there ready to snap the ball. You can't play too tight, because he'll throw a quick slant right over the middle with pinpoint accuracy. If you cheat, he can audible and run Willis McGahee right off tackle for 6 or 7 yards. Or he can ghost audible into a run off tackle, and actually throw a bubble screen to a TE, or a RB like Moreno.

It's literally sexually arousing to think of all of the possibilities. And all of this is happening at a fast pace and at 5,300 feet above sea level.

Demaryius Thomas is checking to see if he has a pro bowl clause in his contract

That requires more than just a QB.

So is this based on the old Peyton or the one we have? For the one we have, I don't think we will know what we are getting until the preseason.

This is true. But I have a good feeling that if Peyton knew he wasnt going to be back to his old self, he wouldnt bother playing. He's said years ago he didnt want to play as long as Favre and pay attention to the years, but wanted to play until he sees his decline in gameplay. Whos to know how Peyton is going to be next year though, whether its the old peyton or maybe just a fraction/percentage of what peyton was or something. Regardless, he still has his brains and game managing skills, better than anyone in the nfl today

Yeah it's a football article trying to explain what manning does at the line. Sorry it didn't have any whining or drama, but it seems Elway is trying to get away from that and is now trying to win Super Bowls. Sorry to disappoint you.

Over the last 3 seasons, I think Peyton averaged catching opposing teams with 12-men-on-the-field about once per game. I wrote that question into the Indy Star a few years ago, and they said they had never tracked it and couldn't find the data easy. I watched after that, and it was really just about once per game.

Hope that trend continues. It's hilarious to watch. If he runs 4 quarters from the no-huddle, I expect it to.
