I don’t think you’ll be hearing any more talk about a loss of arm strength any time soon from Peyton Manning detractors. After four straight 300+ yard/multiple touchdown pass games, three of which were three TD games, that sort of talk goes out the window..
So much for rust. So much for learning to play in a new town with new teammates. Peyton’s 67.8 completion percentage is higher than his 65.0 career mark. Same goes with his 105.0 passer rating, which is significantly higher than his 95.2 career mark..
Granted it’s only six games, but his passer rating is the highest it has been since his then record-breaking 2004 season. He is only percentage points behind Aarron Rodgers for the NFL lead. He only trails Tom Brady in passing yards and is tied with Brees and Matt Ryan for second in touchdown passes behind Rodgers..
Clearly he’s back. As hot is he is, it’s a shame they have to have a bye this week..
All will be good when they come out of the bye as they face the soft Saints defense. A fifth straight 300-yard game is almost a given..
His good fortunes should continue. Of his second half opponents only the Kansas City Chiefs are in the top half in passing defense. They have allowed 13 passing touchdowns so they aren’t safe either..
Unlike many of his runs with the Colts you won’t have to worry about reduced playing time during the last few weeks of the season. The Broncos are in good position to make the playoffs, but will likely be jockeying for playoff positioning..
Could he lose some steam down the stretch? It’s possible. He is 36 and it’s possible that not playing in a dome could have an adverse effect on Peyton in the winter months..
I wouldn’t be too concerned though. Continue to enjoy the success and after the bye you shouldn’t have to worry about who you’re penciling in your lineup at quarterback again...
