These country boys call themselves "Black and Decker"

A wonderful story on DT.


 


These WRs are pretty much all I asked for when we lost to the Saints in the superbowl - some targets that can beat the coverage do not always require Manning to throw 100% accurate. Unfortunately Manning is no longer with Colts, but he has gotten the weapons now. Hope they help him get the trophy he has always deserved.

That's a good point...Manning throws to guys that arent open now..

..He expects them to wall off the defender like a basketball player getting a rebound..

That's big this week agaionst baltimore's corners

In the year Manning was with Colts we just never had receivers that were physically stronger or taller or faster than players who cover them. If very average QBs like Matt Staford and Andy Dalton look elite once they have their tall and fast weapons, I just don't believe Manning couldn't take advantage of the gifts and take them to an even higher level.

Fun read! This passage made me laugh:

 

You might become best friends, too, if you both had to deal with the joy and the hell of playing with a picky perfectionist like Manning every day.

"Our favorite," Decker says, "is when he comes to you on the sideline after you screw up and asks you a question he already knows the answer to. He'll be like, 'Now, on the down and in, are you supposed to cut that up at 5 yards or 7?' And you'll be like, 'Five,' even though you both know you were at 7. And he'll be like, 'Oh, OK. Thanks.'"

People think Manning has done for Decker and Thomas what Madonna did for bras. But they might try looking at it from the other end.

 

I love that they are getting national recognition. They are smart, hard-working youths, and they will only get better.

Both 25....Both 1,000 yards....and Elway seemed to know they could do this....

I think their size might make them effective even in the tough weather Saturday...

D. Thomas made the biggest play of last season....vs. Pitt in the wild card game..the 80-yard pass/run

    • Whos doing the projecting? Walter Football?
    • Smoot looks like a 3rd or 4th rounder to me when I watch too. He doesnt even get to the QB all that much. His team mate Carol Phillips gets there more.
    • Says who? Hes listed on the CBS Sports website as a 3-4 round prospect. His numbers really aren't all that jaw dropping.
