IIJM: Peyton Manning
Is it just me, or is the last thing any team in the NFL wanted to hear was that at the age of 33 and in his 12th professional season, Peyton Manning is playing better and more consistently than he has in his entire life.
It makes me wonder about how amazed I’ve been when the Colts won 10, 12, 12, 14, 12, 13, and 12 games in each of the last six regular seasons. Was Peyton just hanging out and throwing passes for fun and not focusing? I mean if this is the best start of his entire career, have the other 11 seasons just been practice?
I always seem to find myself saying that just when we think we’ve seen all his tricks, he surprises us with something new.
