Peyton looks horrible

The D that the Falcons played reminded me of the "Amoeba" style that Rob Ryan loves to play, people standing up, and something the Chargers did at the line of scrimmage as well vs Peyton. The best things you can do against those is to run the ball since the O-line can win leverage battles 9 out of 10 times and Peyton did not do that and they played pass all the way in the 1st quarter.

The last drive seemed like Peyton has finally settled down and mixed in the run with the pass well. Maybe he forgot how to play in the dome, LOL, and how loud it can get :).

Bad first quarter by Peyton PLUS a fumble by Mcgahee.

Also the Denver D can't get pressure for crap on Matt Ryan. 100+ yards in penalties, a fumble recovery given to ATL when DEN came out with it, so on and so forth.

Bad game by the Broncos. Bad game by officials. Good job by ATL. It's not over yet, though.

Frankly, some of you disgust me - talking about Peyton Manning as though he was just any other "former-Colt", where is the loyalty to the player that built this franchise to what it is today?

Even though he wears a different uniform, he is still a Colt at heart (especially the way he runs that offense) if you casually dismiss him then you are casually dismissing a decade of excellence.

As for the game, Manning has always struggled with DCs who took away his pre-snap read eg Crennel, Riviera, Nolan ...what annoys me is they throw the kitchen sink at him one week, then the next they go back to their old same, vanilla selves and look completely beatable ...why don't they play this way every week for every QB? Argh!!!!

I hate to say it but I don't think Peyton is mentally strong right now .. he doesn't have faith in himself physically and now it looks like he doesn't have faith in what he sees

This thread was originally in the Colts section which is why people were saying that.

    • Yup. Kelly, Nelson, and Moore... none had a great year, let alone PB.    When they released the final fan vote for the PB, only Taylor (he was #1 in the NFL) made the top 40 in fan PB votes for the Colts. Fan votes are 1/3 of the mix, with a third coming from coaches, and the last third from players. I don't believe they publish the players and coaches votes. IIRC, we had a lot of alternates too in addition to the 7 PBers.
    • Pierce is a second round pick not a 7th rounder. He better be active of we over drafted him.
    • There is plenty of film out there on Deebo Samuel and Cordarrelle Patterson (especially with the Falcons and Matt Ryan) to show just how much he can be involved in the offense......
    • Pittman and Pascal were reads 1 and 2 90+% of the time it seamed when Frank called pass plays. Pittman more the designed target than anything else. It was pretty rinse repeat. And our pass pro really didn't allow a lot of late read comfort. So not surprising he got the lion's share of targets.  You're welcome.  Like I said all along. I like Pierce a lot, but he was more or less a one trick pony at Cinci, and folks should be cautious with their early expectations. I'd love for him to surprise us all, and start early and be a stud, but that's just not likely. We're asking him to do things now he really never did at Cinci. New plays, new routes, new scheme, blocking responsibility, etc.. At Cinci, he was a star for simply running outside 9s. His route tree outside of that was super limited, and he rarely lined up anywhere else..   In short, he'll need patience. He didn't have a well rounded game like Pittman had coming from a P5 program like USC.  It's actually a bit strange. While that logic might be good for "why not to use Pierce" (he's a rook with very limited route tree experience), it really doesn't explain "why Strachan", or support the theory they are trying to assess Ryan. If they wanted experience or to assess Ryan, I'd think Dulin would be running with the 1s as he had the 3rd most snaps at WR last year, and almost 6ish times that of Strachan.    IMO, it's not a bad thing for Pierce (I didn't expect him to start early). It is likely a good thing for Strachan. A little surprising for Dulin. And probably not a good thing for Patmon. Regardless, it's very very early, so not really a big deal. Just interesting out of the gate.    This doesn't make a lot sense. See above.   I personally didn't envision Pierce starting early in the year due to obvious reasons, so not shocking. But I do find it interesting that he's getting work at gunner. Nothing to freak out about, but something to watch.  Yup. And lacks route running experience. 
    • I hope Campbell plays all year and is a great playmaker. I also hope shines plays in the slot and we run 4 wide every now and then. Or just push Campbell outside and let him still make plays. To many options is better than not enough.
