Default (POLL) Impressions of Peyton so far?

Well? for me... dude is still cerebral as hell, and can pick apart any defense most of the time, but he's clearly lost some velocity and touch. While the velocity issue can't be fixed, I hope that the nerves continue to regenerate so that he gets a little touch back.

I have no problem at all with Peyton. He has moved the ball well. Has shown enough arm strength. Work out the kinks and they'll be ready to roll.

Peyton looks rusty and throws ducks and O isn't in sync at all yet. I figured it might take this season for him to regain form though after 20 months off and neck issues.


Not worried about it.

Colts were 0-4 in preseason in 2010. That tells you everything you need to know.

I must be watching an entirely different game. Velocity looks just fine. Very similar to Manning in circa 2009. Placement is still very good.

The only thing I see is a bit of confusion on Mannings part about where blockers and receivers are going to be. As the game went on tonight, that got better and better.

He's going to be great this season, and sooner rather than later.

I think Peyton is still knocking off the rust. I'm not worried at all. Once he gets his groove back he'll be the old Peyton again.

B+/A-

If 16/23 (with at least two drops, and one a sure TD) is rusty, then I love rusty! He really only had one poor throws, and three of those drives ended due to more circumstances. (the 3 and 1 run (happens), the deflection pick (rarely happens), and the Ball fumble (happens). I'm encouraged. It's only gonna get better and its already not bad.

What game were you watching? The one where Peyton went 4/23 for 16 yards?

Voted C as the poll was for "so far" and the fact that I have extremely high standards for PFM.

DT getting lazy on routs and dropped balls didn't help him.

I'm very optimistic that after next week it could turn into a B though.

Voted D just because of the results... should get better.

I'm sure Peyton gives himself an F for that performance, though.

The whole offense is going through growing pains as expected and you can't tell me Manning doesn't have alittle rust in his game so far. I'm not at all worried about Manning. I'm more concerned about our skill players so far.

All I know is Manning has thrown 0 tds and 0 INT. Hell he hasn't thrown a pass that counts yet. He looks fine to me considering no football played in a long time l, new system, and new recievers. Light years ahead of not the sharpest tool in the shed teblow.

Yeah, if that's rusty, I couldn't be happier. What's even more awesome is how anal he's going to be this week - well really every week, but when things don't work on offense, he takes things to another level and drags the rest of the team with him.

/not worried at all.

Sure, but everyone has a "little rust" in the preseason. I'm pretty encouraged with what I saw. Other than one **** throw, he systematically picked apart the D, and when he was blitzed, he made them pay. He was accurate, he was decisive, and kept himself upright the entire half. Obviously some anomalies occured that stalled some drives, but unless your standard is that he has to complete every pass and has to score a TD on every drive (and this is the mane, so i assume it is), i dont see how you can be discouraged from that.

I'm not discouraged at all so far. I just stated that our offense is in growing pains and might take awhile to hit O stride. The next game will give us a clue if we are ready for Pitt.


I voted C fpr present play on O but, at midseason expect it to be a B and next year an A

Here we go with working out the kinks again with only one more audition, ah well what the hell, dude's gonna turn it on. Ok, we'll see what happens.

They sure gave Osweiler an audition.

Good lord, the dude hasn't played hardly any real football in sooo long. Of course there will be rust, not to mention new teammates, coach, system, city, yada yada. That 2 minute drill showed you what he can bring to the table. I didn't even vote because 1) methgood? seriously, are we going to be using this stupid phrase all year? 2) well, when we see Peyton for a full game or 2 in regular season, then we can have a poll.

I'm not worried about Peyton Manning....I've seen enough to know that he needs to knock a little more rust off and get in synch with the offense and the players around him and he will be fine.

Going to go with a C+/B-. He's still one of the most if not the most cerebral QB in the game. He can still kill you with the no-huddle and pick you apart with the underneath short stuff. He can still get some air under the ball when he throws a nine route. That being said, his arm strength is diminished, and I think it's significantly diminished. He's not going to be able to jack the ball up 45, 50 times per game and get in a shoot out with an Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, or even a Matthew Stafford and be on the winning end. As a team, Denver is going to have to play much more of a ball control offense than Manning played in Indy for this to work. That means we have to be able to establish the run game, which has me worried because Willis looks good in spots, but he's old and if we're honest we really have dick after that. . . a rookie that can't get in a game so far because he's hurt, Ball and Moreno Johnson and Omon are teh suck to mediocre at best.

I have to say nobody is scared of Peyton's arm today. Too bad for us. Dude doesn't scare anybody anymore.
