According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has had problems throwing the ball to his right side.
“It appears that one of the biggest challenges for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning as he comes back from a serious neck injury is throwing to his right.
“ESPN guru John Clayton pointed it out to me this summer. While he thought Manning was his usual self throwing to his left, he had issues throwing to the opposite side. After two preseason games Clayton explained to me that he thinks Manning has improved in the area but that he still has problems when the passes are more than 10 yards. He believes Manning will continue to improve, and more importantly, will have overall success,” wrote Williamson.
I think with an intelligent quarterback like Manning, he won’t have a problem making up for his weaknesses.
BEST OF MAXIM
Direct TV’s fairy commercials to support their NFL Sunday Ticket are a bit ironic. Football..fairies…players…tights…anyway, this reel signals the return of Peyton Manning.
As we will soon be reminded when he’s in motion, his brand shows up more than just on the field.
If quarterbacks were judged by MVP awards and commercial appearances, Denver’s Peyton Manning would undisputedly be the greatest of all time.
From wiping the windshield, to giving wet willies, to getting a massage, to ‘cut that meat‘, to ‘orange barrel, reroute!’, to telling on Eli for locking him in a closet, Peyton has pretty much done it all.
Below are outtakes...
Russell Wilson stands at a mere 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds, on a good day. But at that diminutive stature, many big-time NFL pundits would say Wilson has no place playing quarterback in the league. Right? Well, in college, the talented quarterback only threw for 3,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. He also tossed just 109 touchdowns to 30 interceptions over his four-year career...
Against popular belief, just because you self-proclaim yourself to be elite, doesn’t mean your elite. If that was the case, Joe Flacco and Jamarcus Russell would already be in elite status. Against New York Giants fans and ESPN’s so-called “experts” belief, winning a Super Bowl doesn’t make you elite either, which keeps Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer out of this class...

In 1998 the debate about the best quarterback available in the draft centered around the word "upside." While most appreciated Peyton Manning's football acumen, pedigree and polish most agreed that Ryan Leaf had a better arm as well as the potential to grow more. The pundits felt Manning was too ready. In hindsight they look like the buffoons in Major League proclaiming...
Detroit lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh isn’t looking to clean up his reputation. Instead he wants to take down more quarterbacks.
“I love hitting Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler. Ben Roethlisberger, I would like to go against him, because they say he’s one of the hardest to take down,” Suh said, via NFL.com. “I see that as a challenge, so I would love to take him down...
