Default Great Article on Peyton Manning's Recovery

Another well-written article on Manning, this one from the NY Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/02/sp...any-steps.html

After reading it, I think the #1 factor in Manning choosing Denver was his friendship with Todd Helton. Didn't realize how close they were....

Helton, Stokely and Elway really made for the perfect recruiting team. So happy Peyton is here.

i get where hes coming from when you dont physically have the ability you once had due to nerve damage. its crazy and hard to comprehend if it hasnt happened to you before. i cant lift my right arm completely over my head, cant do any pressing movements or anything. such a simple thing to do yet my body wont allow it, same thing with him throwing his first passes over the last year.

Manning wins with his mind more than his arm. He should have a great season.

This certainly puts a "human" face, on Manning. Everybody thinks of him as this confident, even to the point of arrogance, quarterback. His frustrations make me admire him, even more...

I liked the part where he said he immersed himself into film study to compensate for his lack of elite arm strength and mobility to elude the rush.

That is why his arm strength isn't the issue a lot of people on here think it is...his arm is strong enough to make the throws he needs to make this offense work.

Is this true? I never thought of him like that. His commercials always humanized him for me. Hes a funny dude.

Agreed.

I don't get the arrogance tag. I think most think of him as no-nonsense, hard working and someone who would prefer to remain out of the spotlight.

Great article, thanks Bowlen Ball.

I think this quote from Elway sums up everything about Manning this year and the whole "Manning to Denver" deal:

I didnt know what 100 percent of Peyton Manning was, Elway said. I just know, knowing what Ive seen, he can win a world championship."

Well said, Duke, well said.

OK. I shouldn't generalize "everybody". Shame on me...

Very good article, and pleasantly does NOT bring Tebow into the discussion.

I particularly like the discussion of his film study habits. IMHO, this will be a big deal - and maybe the ultimate difference as the season gets under way. I've thought since we signed him that the key to the Broncos success will the health and play of the OL - if PM gets enough time, and STAYS healthy this is going to be one very fun year to watch. Watching him work in the pre-season, it seems that he gets through his progression faster and more effectively than maybe anyone since Elway. He doesnt NEED as much time as many QB's... a very good thing.

Its also good psychology ... a bit of the 'rope a dope' going on here as well. No doubt he is genuine in his statements to the press and is trying to rein in expectations all the while he is obviously getting better every week!

It makes much more sense to report "I don't really know where I am" ( which is always the truth in any event) than to say: "Yep, no question I'm 110% and have never passed better and we wont lose a game .. Broncos are going 19-0 folks so polish up the trophy now".

Keeping people and opponents guessing is always the better part of valor and I suspect for as much truth that his statements do contain there is equal amounts of 'rope a dope' going on as well.

He would rather show us all on the field over time, knowing full well we have a brutal schedule and a new team that has to gel around him as well. I'm not worried at all about Manning or his ability.

We could go 3 and 5 the first 8 games and still make it into the dance and win it all at the end.

Yep, I am in the same boat, never thought he would ever be able to play due to the muscle pain and atrophy. There is something to be said for having access to the best doctors, bleeding edge procedures and non-stop PT.

As long as he got his nerve regenerating he will be a top 10-5 QB and with his experience we could be looking at winning a lot of games in the coming years.

I wish you the best TSI, I have had nerve damage for the last 4 years and it is no fun.
