Manning's deep passes - better than yrs with Colts

16 posts in this topic

Wonder how that compares to years other than 2010.

2010 we had no deep threats.

Obviously a big guy like Thomas makes the deep ball much easier.

Edit: wasn't 2010 also the year Peyton threw like 6 pick 6s in like 3 games. Maybe not the best year to stack up stats against lol.

11 INTs in 3 games, with 4 pick sixes if I remember right (2 vs Chargers, 2 vs Cowboys). I think the pick sixes had more to do with both Collie and Clark on IR. Not that they are deep threats but I do think his YPA would definitely be higher with Clark and Collie in the line up.

I was at those two games. So depressing :( lol.

Couldn't believe we got that Cowboy game to OT. Couldn't believe we lost in OT either......

But yes. Not his best stretch in his career.

I don't buy this one bit. His passes look a bit wobbly compared to years ago, not that everyone at his age can throw 100% perfect. He can still throw, but it's not the same as it was in the past, happens to all of them over the age.

It helps that he hasn't had a supporting cast like this since the early 2000s.

Wobbles or not.

Good video there, thanks for sharing.

 

Yep, the infamous wobble has always been there!!! Peyton had been known more for his reading of Ds, accuracy and his throws getting there with anticipation. Never been known much as a guy with a great arm!!!

Isn't yard per completion more important than yards per attempt?

some balls are thrown away intentionally

    • Jones is a Fat T_u_r_d anyway! Cut him now, he would be injured before the mid-season point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • I don't know ColtsBlue.  Cheater? its the physical violence stuff that really hits me hard. no pun intended
    • Very likely not before 2021... in the NFL.  It will go to CBA negotiations.
    • OK, but just what does it make someone who violates this-
      The Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 1990 placed anabolic steroids into Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) as of February 27, 1991. Under this legislation, anabolic steroids are defined as any drug or hormonal substance chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens, progestins, and corticosteroids) that promotes muscle growth.   The possession or sale of anabolic steroids without a valid prescription is illegal. Simple possession of illicitly obtained anabolic steroids carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a minimum $1,000 fine if this is an individual’s first drug offense. The maximum penalty for trafficking is five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if this is the individual’s first felony drug offense. If this is the second felony drug offense, the maximum period of imprisonment and the maximum fine both double. While the above listed penalties are for federal offenses, individual states have also implemented fines and penalties for illegal use of anabolic steroids.   Cheater? Law Breaker? What?    Termination capability is written into the PEDS policy, at the discretion of the Commissioner and team.  But 4 games and no termination on first offense seems reasonable, IMO.  But even if Jones returns and plays the best D of all players in the league {snicker}, he is ineligible for the Pro Bowl and other such honors for 2016.  This happens to every player suspended for PED use for or during the season.
    • I agree 100%. His arm had given out on him.  He couldn't throw deep with any accuracy and he couldn't run, so it was very easy to scheme against him.  It was just time to move on. I think we got our money's worth out of him.
