Eh.. true enough. That last game also showed us some movement limitations as well. Not a fault, but yes, a fault... dude is old, and could escape some hits/sacks many years ago that he can't today.
Is this a Peyton thread?
Manning can still get it done on the field. But you can see some drop off in his physical play. And on some of his throws. He's in the twilight of his career. Very similar to the 2 years Montana had with the Chiefs. He was still very good 1993 bringing the Chiefs to the AFCC game. Then in 1994, who can forget the MNF dual against John Elway. By the end of that year in the playoff game, you can see his drop off. The hits took a toll on him. The ball has a little less zip. I remember the TV commentator allude to Montana may not have it anymore. And I thought that was crazy. But sure enough. Montana retired after that 1994 playoff loss.
I see something similar in Manning. Lets enjoy him this year. Because he may just hang it up next year.
