But today he was Mr. Dink and Dunk. He had a couple of 15 yard TDs that were nice, but they were placement throws, not lasers. On two throws late in the game, the pass to Stokely that was reviewed in the first overtime, and the game losing INT, he clearly didn't get as much on the ball has he wanted to. The mind was willing but the arm was a dish rag.
Maybe it was because it was late in the game, late in the season and in cold weather coming off an injury. But even ignoring his normal playoff chokatude, his arm was really sub par today.
Manning threw some 20 yard lasers but he didn't go long at all.
Manning had his neck worked on and I can't speak for that but once they started hitting him the game changed. You hit Manning and he folds.
End! Of! Story!
My one day as a Ravens fans was ****ing glorious! That game was awesome.
