Default Manning Has Trouble Throwing To His Right? (M)

Anyone who has been to camp noticed this? Or is this just Clayton BS?


"1. Manning looks good enough: Even if the Broncos signed Manning at 85 percent of his skill set, it was a remarkable acquisition. Tebowmania was fun, but it was shallow. Though he would never say it publicly, Elway knew Tim Tebow couldn't sustain success as a quarterback. Tebow wasn't an accurate thrower, and eventually defensive coordinators would have found ways to stop his style of option football. Manning's knowledge and experience trump Tebow's legs and competitiveness. Coming off four neck operations, Manning knows he's not 100 percent as a thrower, but he's good enough to compensate. Because he had a neck fusion procedure, his most inconsistent throws might be to his right, where he has to plant his right foot, extend his arm and fire. He'll get better as the damaged nerve in his neck regenerates and full arm strength returns. Throwing to his left appears to be no problem. Throwing accurate, short passes in the middle of the field isn't an issue. He shows flashes of being able to throw the deep ball, something that was inconsistent in his final season on the field in Indianapolis, in 2010. More than anything else, Manning provides credibility for the Broncos. His presence alone makes them a contender for the AFC West title."

I think the key word in that sentence by Clayton is "might".

Didn't see any problem during the scrimmage. Manning fired a 40-yard bomb down the right sideline to Caldwell.

Decker has been primarily working on the right side against Champ, and has been having pretty consistent success lately, now that Manning and Decker have the timing down.

Manning has been very successful with the "Levels" play on the left side with Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, since Marvin Harrison retired. It's obviously easier to exploit the weakside of the Defense. Not to say Garcon didn't get his catches (because he did), but he just wasn't open as much as the other guys. I imagine it will be the same way with Decker. I expect DT and Tamme to lead in catches (with Decker not far behind), but not as an indictment on Manning's arm strength.

This is no big deal, they just need to loosen the duct tape on that side of his neck and he will be fine.

Cecil has been reporting that there should be no question about arm strength or the throws he can make, this was reinforced yesterday again.

Clayton is an idiot.

Of course he says that without any basis or evidence to back it up.

Solid analysis... good thing he doesn't have to plant on his right foot and extend his arm when he's throwing to the left side and down the middle or else we might be in trouble.

Clayton is a ruhtard. I've got questions about what level Manning will be able to return to, but this "he may not be able to throw to his right because of his neck" crap is beyond idiotic. Does Clayton even know how to throw a football?

-<-insert insult against crypt keeper here.->-

With that being said. On the one day of camp I went to, he had more completions on the right than to the left, but was solid everywhere. He had to have Brock tie his shoes though. It looked like if he bent his head all the way towards the earth his neck would snap off if he tried to raise it back up.

Solid analysis. He should start short arming throws off his back foot to the right now just like he does on the throws to the left and middle. That should help with his consistency to the right.

Cheese and rice!!! I just read that whole article and think I've lost more brain cells than an all night whiskey pounding session. Did Clayton even attend camp? He had some nice observations on D. Thomas, but this is all he said about Decker:

Eric Decker is also a good slot receiver.

He then goes on to profuse that Manning is eventually going to need more outside help. I would like to meet this man, shake his hand, pity his mental deficiencies, then introduce him to KCStud. I think they'd be best friends.

He also implied McGahee had trouble running against heavy fronts when Tebow started (sorta the opposite due to the backside threat of the read option) and that Sproles and Hillman were similar (they really arent)
