Peyton “looked real good” throwing to new Broncos teammates (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/26/peyton-looked-real-good-throwing-to-new-broncos-teammates/)
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 26, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT


As he settles in with the Broncos, Peyton Manning is learning the rules of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, including that he can work out with teammates, but only away from the team’s facilities and outside the watchful eyes of the coaches. And that’s exactly what Manning did today.

Lindsay H. Jones of the Denver Post reports that Manning took snaps from center J.D. Walton and threw passes to wide receiver Eric Decker and tight end Julius Thomas during a session at a Denver-area high school, and afterward Decker said he liked what he saw.

“He looked real good, though he probably won’t admit that he’s feeling good or feeling back to the way he wants to be,” Decker said.

Decker said Manning is trying to get comfortable with his new teammates now, and that the players who were on the roster last year are talking to him about the offensive concepts the Broncos employed — even though the offense will be quite a bit different with Manning running it in 2012.

“Just some drill work, talking through stuff, so he gets familiar with the verbage and the calls,” Decker said. “The biggest thing is he wanted to get a feel for us, and a feel for being under center.”

The Denver Post published 23 photos (http://photos.denverpost.com/mediacenter/2012/03/photos-denver-broncos-peyton-manning-gets-in-some-throwing-monday-march-26-2012/32542/#name%20here) from today’s session. To the extent that you can tell anything from a still photo of a guy throwing a pass in sweats and a T-shirt, Manning looks pretty much like he has always looked.

--------------------------------------------

He looks pretty thin to me...not that I've looked at any comparison pictures.

I know he's never really looked like an NFL player (ala Montana) but even still I thought he looked a bit frail.

Besides Decker is the one saying he looked good, of course he would say that. He would say that if I was throwing him passes considering what he had last year.

I was driving my daughter and two nephews back to SLC from Denver this past weekend and with the boys being big Bronco fans and my daughter and I being Chiefs fans, we were having a bit of fun back and forth with the Manning acquisition.

Anyway, we got to the point where my ten year old daughter says to her cousin:

"You know Tamba Hali?"

and the boy responds:

"Peyton Manning is going to get smoked."

I didn't think you were being an ass. Your question is legitimate and is something everyone who follows football is waiting to find out. I was in favor of trying to move up and draft a QBOTF rather than going after Manning but this is the girl we have so I might as well dance with her.

You asked what Denver fans would think if Manning is PUP, my answer meant I will still believe the move to get him was the right move because you can't win super bowls if you don't make moves to get the right players. Along with that comes a certain amount of risk but I'd rather try and fail than not try at all.

Those pictures are exactly what Peyton was trying to hide through the whole process.

His throwing arm is easily half the size it was when he played last.

His arm strength isnt what it used to be.

I know I'm just trying to look at the bright side of this, but I see a guy that might be the next Carson Palmer.

He will throw at least 20 picks next year because his mind is gonna think he can "make that throw"...but his body cant.

For the record, I've been saying for months now that the dude has arm atrophy and it's amazing people are falling over themselves for him... although I do think he is such a hard worker he can come back and play, I'm sure. He'll make the best of what he has. But I also think the odds are very slim we're talking about Super Bowl champion QB Peyton Manning this time next year.

watch that brush you're painting with, you're using mighty wide brush strokes. not all of us say he's not going to do anything; scares the fuck out of me, but I'm a chiefs fan.

No, you were blinded just like everyone else that 2005 Manning might walk out there. The talk has been there for months. Everyone just ignored it. Not just Chiefs fans... everyone. People close to him thought he was going to retire. So did Gil Brandt... because he just didn't have it. There were reports even two months ago that he was having difficulty gripping the football properly.

That's why he made the PR move of having his doctor "clear" him. If you actually read the statement it said his neck was cleared, and now it's just about getting his arm strength back. But everybody just kind of glazed over that and said "He's back!" Even ESPN was guilty of that.

But before I eat my words, I think he can come back and throw it around the yard a bit... and probably be effective. I don't think he will completely suck. He's too smart, if he can't find his fastball he'll work around it. But I think he might have to knock the rust off. I am not convinced he's going to be out there throwing 50 yard sideline fades like he used to do to Reggie Wayne though.

That's why he made the PR move of having his doctor "clear" him. If you actually read the statement it said his neck was cleared, and now it's just about getting his arm strength back. But everybody just kind of glazed over that and said "He's back!" Even ESPN was guilty of that.

But before I eat my words, I think he can come back and throw it around the yard a bit... and probably be effective. I don't think he will completely suck. He's too smart, if he can't find his fastball he'll work around it. But I think he might have to knock the rust off. I am not convinced he's going to be out there throwing 50 yard sideline fades like he used to do to Reggie Wayne though.

Pretty sure this post is the most well reasoned reading of this situation i've seen anywhere, on any level... national media, local fan board, wherever...

yup...IIRC dude is 6'5"...on size alone he'll be able to throw the ball, just not like his previous ability...his body will remember working out...guess we'll see how hard he hits the gym.

Just a question for some of the Bronco fans here,



What if the guy ends up being done? Say he gets injured again, or just is another guy at this point. What is the feeling gonna be then?


Say this was all about getting rid of Tebow. I mean I'm sure most of you guys will admit that this was the only way for that to happen.


I'm personally quite satisfied with the risk to reward ratio here. Also, as much as I like Tebow, he's even more of a gamble than an injured Peyton Manning - don't you think? Would you want to completely revamp your offense, and build your franchise around Tebow, even if you believe that he's incredibly talented? The investment in Peyton Manning means that when Peyton Manning goes down, the franchise chases another traditional quarterback - not easy, but much easier than finding a Tebow replacement if that experiment goes south. And at the end of the day, that's what Tebow is - an experiment.

I love Tim Tebow, but I'd rather watch and root for that experiment from the outside looking in. It's certainly better for my blood pressure.

I'd be happy to have Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker back when Elway was quarterback. I think Thomas has more natural talent than Rod Smith - and quite frankly, I think Eric Decker is a lot more athletic than Eddie McCaffrey was (Decker's hands aren't as sure as Eddie's were, but then again, Eddie didn't have Tebow's funny "spiral" coming at him, so who knows).

Tap the brake just a touch... talent is one thing, hard work, effort and dedication are another. Smith and Ed were top notch and will be tough to beat. Remember the quote that Tebow likes regarding talent and hard work, it personifies Smith and Ed.

My guess is that they've seen him throw quite a bit and they're more than happy with what they have seen and convinced his current condition is not a negative. If you heard Manning talk, he mentioned over and over again about getting back into the gym and working with the trainers. Physically, he may not be where he wants to be and he may not look like he used to ... it's March.

Let's see how he looks when training camps get here and they're going into the preseason in July/August. I think he'll look more like everyone expects him to look.

It sounds like he's passing the ball fine and with the zip and accuracy that he's always shown and that's what matters at this point.

Latest rumor is that the Broncos may open up SNF with the Steelers in week 1. I don't think I'm a fan of that at all.

Obviously, the last time the Steelers were in Denver, Tebow defeated them. It's going to take a few weeks of live action to work out the kinks with the new offense and I'd really like to not see that defense against Manning in week 1. :harumph:

But, if it sets up like that... so be it. Can't really ask for a stronger test right out of the gate. And, the entire Broncos' nation will be near puking each time Manning drops back and a pass rush ensues.

God I hope so. Seriously, I do think a diminished Payton Manning is still better than a LOT of QB's in this league, especially ours. He's never shown anything but toughness, smarts and ability. I gotta see him in a game to feel like he's not going to be his old Chief-owning self.

But I DO think that it will take a lot of time for him to even come close to replicating his production that he had in Coltville. First, it was HIS offense which he built over the course of like 13 seasons. It'll be pretty hard to just make that happen in Dungver over night. Second, it's a different world in Dungver, and the AFC West teams play each other tough regardless. I don't think it'll be much like what he's used to.

That's all I got. I hope he struggles mightily and winds up sucking balls. I just don't think that'll be the case.

Peyton = Jamie Moyer, LOL.

Manning talked to another confidant, Bill Parcells, who he knew wouldn’t b.s. him. He told Parcells his arm wasn’t 100% yet. “You know who Jamie Moyer is?” Parcells asked, referring to the veteran lefthander who’s been pitching in the majors since 1986. Manning said he did.

“He’s 49 years old,” Parcells said. “He’s not 26 anymore, but he’s still getting ‘em out. Can you still throw well enough to get ‘em out?’

“I think I can,” Manning said.

“Then don’t worry about it.”

"You focus on the little muscles," he said. "You rebuild yourself really from ground zero, because of the atrophy, and when I came back, fundamentally I was better, I was stronger, and actually threw the ball with more velocity after the surgery than I did prior."

"I know that's his goal, and there isn't any reason, there is no indicator otherwise."

"He can make all the throws, his release times are perfect, and we pay a lot of attention to that. It's arm speed and getting rid of it. His velocity is good.

Manning picked the Broncos on March 19 and signed a five-year contract worth up to $96 million a day later.

Since joining the Broncos, Manning has remained in Denver and he has begun working out at a local high school with teammates Eric Decker, Julius Thomas and J.D. Walton.

"He could play a game. We've done it, we've simulated games, and he's done well. He's going to do nothing but get stronger and going to play up to his standards," Cutcliffe said Thursday in a phone interview with The Denver Post. "I know that's his goal, and there isn't any reason, there is no indicator otherwise."

Manning picked the Broncos on March 19 and signed a five-year contract worth up to $96 million a day later.

Since joining the Broncos, Manning has remained in Denver and he has begun working out at a local high school with teammates Eric Decker, Julius Thomas and J.D. Walton. Manning is continuing his neck rehab at Dove Valley with Broncos head trainer Steve Antonopulos and strength coach Luke Richesson.

Decker says there’s “no question” Peyton’s arm is fine

Three weeks ago, quarterback Peyton Manning decided to join the Broncos amid questions regarding his arm strength. Receiver Eric Decker now says that Manning’s arm is plenty strong.

Decker told ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd that there’s “no question” Manning has the arm strength to play in the NFL.

“The guy’s still throwing the ball a long time, throwing it great, hitting you in the right spot,” Decker told Cowherd. “He’s such a perfectionist. If he hits you in the belly button, he gets mad at himself for not hitting you in the chest. It’s unbelievable to be around a guy who has those standards for himself.”

Decker has been working out with Manning, something that players are permitted to do before the start of the formal offseason program.

“When I got to meet him face to face, the guy is just a class act,” Decker said of his first encounter with Manning. “A different person. [It's] special to be around a guy of that stature and his ability to play football.”

Decker raved about Manning’s work ethic. “In workouts, in the weight room — I mean the guy’s jogging from station to station. He’s working like he’s a 23-year-old free agent coming out of college. The way he talks about football, the way he runs drill work, routes, everything’s gotta be perfect and there’s no gray area. I think that, as a receiver, [is] the best thing about it. You got a leader that demands the best out of you because he gives the best he’s got.”

It’s hard not to view the words of Decker and any other member of the Broncos through the Tebow prism. Though no one is insulting the team’s former quarterback, the raving about Peyton implies a certain level of discomfort with his predecessor. Or possibly more comfort with the four-time MVP who will now be throwing the ball far more accurately than Tebow ever did.

The Colts were decimated by injuries in 2010 and Manning himself was playing through knee and neck injuries. Manning said at his Donkey press conference that his body feels fresher than it has in years. Jerry Rice and Tom Brady both came back strong after missing a full year late in their career, Peyton Manning should be no different.

Rice had 3 1000 yard seasons after 35. But he was never the same player he was before that, where he could stretch a defense and be a threat anywhere on the field. He became mostly a short route, possession WR. Rice was also the greatest of all time, so he's an exception, not the rule.

You are clearly disregarding the age factor here. Manning is 36. He might have this season left in him as far as "good" goes, but he's not going to give the Donkeys more than a good season and a half more than likely.

Tap the brake a bit.... those Broncos' teams in Elway's final years were 10X better than what the Broncos have right now. The OL, RB, WR, TE and all around DEF were better. That's not to say this Broncos' team lacks talent, but keep it in perspective.

Peyton Manning says he still has work to do
Posted by Darin Gantt on June 12, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT
Peyton Manning AP

On the list of things Denver coach John Fox is worried about, Twitter pictures of playbooks are low on the list.

Maybe the notably conservative coach is relaxed because his quarterback continues to make good progress.

Peyton Manning told USA Today’s Jim Corbett he feels good after a Monday check-up with Broncos doctors, but stressed he was not yet 100 percent.

“I still have a lot of work to do,” Manning said. “I continue to rehab. I have work to do and progress that I still need to make.”

Corbett’s report said Manning showed good velocity, completing a 30-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas during practice. But Manning pumped the brakes, probably hesitant to get anyone’s hopes too high after a year off.

“I can’t emphasize enough that I still have rehab to do,” Manning said. “That’s still part of the process.”

The Broncos are doing everything they can to make Manning comfortable, even inviting his old offensive coordinator Tom Moore to practice (Moore and Fox worked together in Pittsburgh in 1989).

And if Manning can continue to make progress, Fox might be so happy he’ll start Tweeting himself.

Peyton Manning says he still has work to do

On the list of things Denver coach John Fox is worried about, Twitter pictures of playbooks are low on the list.

Maybe the notably conservative coach is relaxed because his quarterback continues to make good progress.

Peyton Manning told USA Today’s Jim Corbett he feels good after a Monday check-up with Broncos doctors, but stressed he was not yet 100 percent.

“I still have a lot of work to do,” Manning said. “I continue to rehab. I have work to do and progress that I still need to make.”

Corbett’s report said Manning showed good velocity, completing a 30-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas during practice. But Manning pumped the brakes, probably hesitant to get anyone’s hopes too high after a year off.

“I can’t emphasize enough that I still have rehab to do,” Manning said. “That’s still part of the process.”

The Broncos are doing everything they can to make Manning comfortable, even inviting his old offensive coordinator Tom Moore to practice (Moore and Fox worked together in Pittsburgh in 1989).

And if Manning can continue to make progress, Fox might be so happy he’ll start Tweeting himself.

If Manning read CP, he would know that he's healthier than he's been in half a decade. What a dumbshit.

Terrel Pryor camp report:

"Terrell Pryor continued to have issues. Same old dead horse, really. Floating long balls, low/behind on short passes, etc.. He also had a fumbled exchange on a handoff to Taiwan Jones. To his credit, he did pick it up in seven on seven drills and completed some nice passes. But once the linemen came in and the rush was coming, he was caught holding the ball too long and would have been sacked a couple times."

You just posted this because of the headline. The article was extremely positive and I bet you didn't even bother reading it.

I know he's never really looked like an NFL player (ala Montana) but even still I thought he looked a bit frail.

Hell, Montana never looked the part either. Manning better be looking good since these are just shell workouts with no real D pressure:rolleyes:

One hit away from retirement OR he will have a Priest Holmes comeback epipheny thought of "Shit, this next play could paralyze me forever, I'm done !!:shake:

An 80% Payton Manning is better than anything we have. Dammit.

True. But, it's not good enough to even win the division, let alone a Super Bowl. Still one flawed as hell team, that would need a Manning close to his prime days to compete.

They won the division last year with Tim Tebow. Now it wouldn't be good enough to win the division?

It's possible they can win the division, but last year has little to do with this year. Teams improve, schedules change, bounces go or don't go your way and as we know key players get hurt.

JFC. That was one of the biggest fluke seasons I've ever seen. They ran a Pop Warner offense and had some of the biggest breaks seen in a while for pete's sake. I doubt guys run out of bounds to stop the clock when all they need to do is fall over to win the game this year.

They were so confident they could repeat it, so they sent thier 1st round drafted QB packing and signed a guy with a broken neck.

Last place schedule vs. first place schedule may make a difference.
