Default The player I am most worried about....

Is Peyton Manning. Nobody is talking about it but he is missing his long and some mid range passes as of the last few games and It happened again today. He has not been his super sharp self for a while now.

He under threw two long balls that I remember today and missed a couple of others. Playing a 16 game season + playoffs is a lot of stress to put on the regenerating nerve. Sure hope we rest him in parts of the last two games.

If I had to chose I would rather lose HFA and have a 100% (rested) Manning for the playoffs.

With the way we are playing on both sides of the ball we can beat anyone anywhere with Manning at 100%

Maybe Baltimore was doing what they always do and blasting receivers and throwing off timing of routes?

You seem like a smart surprised you don't know the difference between "worried" and "complain"

Well it is the Mane, ya know....

Deep throws are generally less successful as shorter and intermediate throws...but while some members want to hand wring over Manning missing DThomas deep, I'll point out that he hit Dreesen with a perfect pass where the window was about as big as a mail slot....between 2-3 defenders.

Manning will be fine....this team is playing at a high level now, in basically all phases of the game, running, passing, special teams and run defense, pass defense, etc...

This has been happening for a few weeks now. It is not drastic but but he is missing opportunities that he made look easy mid season.

He missed a year and had to completely rebuild nerves in his throwing arm. The idea of fatigue is not far fetched. He may play like superman at times but he is human and he has made huge demands on his system.

There were about 10 passes that could have went either way. Yes, we need to collect those plays but it comes with time. Couple bad routes, couple great defensive plays and 4-6 balls that were about a yd too much

Ha ha ha. This place is amazing.

To not have some concern for Manning's regenerating nerve with all the rigors of a 16 + game season is simply denial. I hope we can rest him the rest of the way. Play a half next week and a few series against KC.

I don't think baja is off with thinking Manning hasn't looked sharp of late. It's hard to talk about it with how well the team is playing D and running the ball though.

Manning threw a 35 yard strike right into the hands of Decker in stride in the 3rd quarter.

I'm not worried.

Pretty sure he hit Decker on a 50 yard strike for a touchdown. Pretty sure there was another nice throw where the defender made a helluva play to break another long TD. Pretty sure he threaded the needle to Dreessen with a throw that the only other humans on the planet would make would be Rogers, Brady and Brees. Decker and Thomas also had drops on potential big gainers. There were two bad throws I can remember. The first was a throw behind Thomas on a short drag or a shallow cross (don't remember.) The second was an overthrow to the end-zone. I think we're fine.

Was just about to post the same thing . That pass is as good as it gets in the NFL. Throwing the WR open is heard all the time but the great ones do it

I honestly think Thomas could use some rest. He hasn't looked like he is at full speed since getting dinged up against the Pats.

I am not particularly worried. When the weather gets cold it gets tougher to throw the ball, the ball gets a bit harder and less grippy and your fingers lose a bit of tactile sensory response which means it is trickier to throw the ball. Manning overthrew an early DT touchdown pass down the field, just put about a yard too much on it, he seemed to be a bit ahead of his throws and had a few that were in front of his guy - nothing to suggest any problem.

Currently I am not worried about anyone, Moreno is playing like a beast, Thomas and Decker are taking turns dominating, the offensive line is doing a good enough job considering how few plays they get help blocking, the defense is really coming alive with solid contributions from all 3 levels.

They're also passes he missed regularly the first few games of the season, so what you're talking about are weeks 4 to 10 when Manning was hitting >70% or better of his passes with a QB rating >100 week after week. As a result you're saying that you worry about games with a >60% completion rate and a >95 QB rating.

What you're basically doing is worrying that Albert Pujols going 8/24 with three doubles means he'll never hit a homerun again. Players have hot and cold streaks.

Any given Sunday this team can win a game any way it needs to. Manning is as good a bet as any to win a shoot out if we find ourselves in one. Our D can carry us to a 13-10 win if that is what we find ourselves needing. Now suddenly it looks like our running game can pick us up with a 100+ yard, >5.0 YPC outing if the other two could use it. This is what balance looks like, when a QB having the game Manning just put up looks worrying.

More an issue with timing than anything physical.

That play to Dreessen was not to be believed.

Just an awesome throw.

I'm not worried about Thomas. If you were watching the Ravens defense, you would have seen that they were keeping the safety to DT's side all game....which is why Manning was going to Decker all game.

Take my #1....you have to beat my #2! Good luck NFL!!!

Coaches - see the subtle signs and make resting him a priority even if Manning himself does not agree.

My hell guys will complain or be concerned with anything. My only concern with Manning is the amount the line is allowing him to be hit. If Manning is the weak link we are winning the SB. Prater is who I am worried about when it comes to a 40 yard fg to win the game with Denver down 1 pt.
