Default Peyton - arm strength looking better

Don't know if was because I was so hyped for this game but I want to say on several passes out there tonight, he showed improved zip. Some wobbly looking stuff to start out with but for the most part, more passes were tighter then previous games and there was one pass where even Collinsworth mentioned there was a good amount of zip on the ball.

Didn't they show a graphic measuring the speed of one of his passes compared to a previous game against the chargers? Cherry picking two plays isn't the best way to grade his arm strength but for what it is worth the two passes were almost identical. One was 49 mph and the one from this game was 47 I believe.

So as far as arm strength is concerned I think....

His arm strength isn't an issue like so many of us (Raider fans) had hoped. Nope. We're in a collective state of utter disappointment over his performance. The dude looked good and will probably get better as the season wears on.

I'd say congratulations but that would be disenenuous. I was so hoping he'd come out and flop on his ass. ****!!!

At least our third and long defense sucked and I don't think the Steelers finish top five this year in defense. Probably still top ten, but they look a bit slow and old.

Who cares?

As long as he keeps manipulating defenses and making the right pre-snap reads, he could shot put the ****ing ball for I care.

Let Demaryius, Decker and #TeamJacob make the plays for him.

Yeah, but your D tightened up inside the ten yard line, when it mattered most. Keeping Pittsburgh to field goals twice in that situation was big. A 9 minute drive that ends in only a field goal is more disheartening for the team that scored than the team that got scored on.

Agreed. That was huge having our D only give up a FG, when we were on the field for nearly 10 minutes to start the second half.

That is why I was impressed with the D. They didn't just fall apart after being on the field all game. I think our conditioning is much improved this year.

Great, so we've already got a Wolfe on the roster and now two other guys with Twilight related nicknames......How long before Bowlen gets on the horn with Alyssa Milano to aggressively court the female fanbase?

...not soon enough. I'll take Alyssa Milano all day every day. (she's got a few more seasons left in the tank before her face and body loses a step)

Agreed.

Note to NBC: The gratuitous shots of her during the NHL Finals were appreciated.

I'm all for gratuitous Alyssa Milano but confused on:

1. What does she have to do with Twilight, and
2. How would she court the (non-lesbian) female fanbase?

no biggie, just scratching my head a bit on that one...

Peyton has always thrown some balls that wobble. Its because he stands so upright when he delivers the ball IMO. Just sort of his style. He is more about throwing a catchable perfectly times ball then realy spinning it like these new young guns.

She has nothing to do with twilight, but everything to do with #2.

Edit: She has nothing to do with Twilight, but now that I think of it, she's actually been (naked quite a bit I might add) in another vampire movie. Google "Embrace of the Vampire"......just not at work!

I completely agree on all fronts.

Here she is in a silly hat!

Why are people looking at that graphic as some sort of evidence of anything? Two throws in completely diff circumstances?

The matching the two throws and estimated the speed thing was dumb. A QB throws the ball at different speeds all the time. Put more loft on it, less speed. Take something off to get the timing just right. Put some extra grease on it to slip it past a close defender.

There is no proof he has lost anything on his arm.

In game one, although I'd like to see both passes with the MPH. He could have been stepping into one and not the other. At least that's what I remember seeing last night until I realized it was like a 2 mph difference and stopped caring.

If you want to paint me as dumb you'll have to do better than lamely pointing out that I accidentally left a letter out of a word. Or else you can just go through some of my past posts here; particularly one where I had to school a dummy in logic.

Both the throws were sideline outs IIRC. Usually a pass you're putting most of your arm into. I think the point was just that his arm looks as good as it was before the injury. Seems like most of the people saying his arm strength was gone were using sideline throws as examples
