So much is made of what Peyton Manning's passes look like after four neck operations and a season away from football.
Do they wobble? Do they spiral? Do they dip or dive?
No matter, they're almost always on target.
The Denver Broncos quarterback is completing 68 percent of his throws, just shy of his career high of 68.8 percent set in 2009, and that's with his top two targets dropping 15 passes.
Manning has been so precise that he's already completed at least 70 percent of his throws eight times this season, tying his career high. He's also on pace to throw for 4,669 yards, which would be 31 yards short of his career best.

A lot has changed in this league over the last decade or so, but one thing remains the same: Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are constantly in contention in December. And while Manning is in a new home now, that's again the case this year. You could argue that despite some serious concerns Brady's Patriots and Manning's Broncos are in prime positions to meet in the playoffs...
Earlier this week, in the Fantasy Football Support Group post, I broke down the strange, new curse that is the Thursday Night Football QB conundrum. Basically, with very few exceptions, quarterbacks – and a lot of stars in general – have been terrible on the NFL Network this season. As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...

Starter Peyton Manning is healthy. The division is wrapped up. Is it time for the rookie?
The Denver Broncos are guaranteed a playoff spot at seasons’ end, so will we be seeing rookie quarterback Brock Osweiler this year?
Maybe, but probably not until Week 17—if he is given a chance to start.
With four games to go, the Broncos (9-3) are ranked as...
Remember when we all made fun of Rob Lowe earlier this year when he “broke” the “exclusive” “news” on Twitter that Peyton Manning not only wasn’t re-signing with the Indianapolis Colts, but he was never going to play football again? Yeah, that was a fun time. By the way, in case you haven’t had the luxury of Manning carrying your fantasy football team to the playoffs...

It’s fourth down. Your team is down by five. There’s four seconds on the clock. And it’s 14 yards to the end zone. Who do you want as your quarterback? Tom Brady? Peyton Manning? Andrew Luck? How many Colts fans would have picked our rookie quarterback at the beginning of the season? And now…after Sunday?
Andrew Luck is quickly becoming that quarterback. That quarterback...
(Author's note: I came up with the general theme and "Stop it." idea halfway through writing this. Hence why it seems a bit disorganized. Still in better shape than the Bills, I think.)
Hey everybody! Did you miss me?
Ok then. Well if anybody even knows/remembers who the hell I am, I have not written for Buffalo Wins for a long time because of...
