Peyton Manning Whoa Whoa Whoa not so fast!!!!!
 
Is it me, or am I the only one that actually seen Peyton take off and run for the 1st time ever last nite WOW!!!!!!!

People stereotype Manning as being completely immoble because he's a great pocket passer. He's nowhere close to Vick, obviously, but he can gain yards with his feet at times.

Is this deserving of its own thread? Probably not.

Was watching Peyton run for that first down hilarious? Absolutely!

I liked the righteous fury from Manning when he was marked short of the 1st down. I felt like hell was about to befall that poor side judge.

yourfavestoner 11-02-2010 01:44 PM

I still think he was short and started his slide a yard before the marker.

He is so overrated he would slide 2 yards shorts, not one.

Let's just get it started already.

And the ref with the worst position possible would still mark him for a first down.

MaxV 11-02-2010 02:10 PM

Wait a minute!

Are you serious?

How can you mention that play and not mention that AWESOME block he threw to allow Garcon get the first down?

That was probably the best block any Colt has thrown all season.

FlyingElvis 11-02-2010 02:17 PM

lol @ this thread.


The ref actually marked the slide correctly and then it was overturned based on the Manning factor.

Houston would have won if not for that BS "Manning Spot."




lololololololollllllllllllllllllllllerrrrrrrrzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over the past 4 years he has a combined -3 rushing yards

Maybe he's closer to Vick than we thought!

That's because he is an immobile pocket passer. The "stereotype" is 100% true.

He actually used to be a fairly good runner early in his career. Recently he hasn't been running much, though, and the negative rushing numbers are because of the kneel downs. He doesn't run much but he is far from immobile, still moves in the pocket and avoids pressure better than any QB ever

I want some visual evidence that this actually happened.

Umm. Close.



Manning is great at a lot of things (maybe even better footwork wise), but no one beats Brady's 6th sense in the pocket.

Why run when you have a 66% chance of completing a pass? Manning is mobile enough to extend plays and run for a few yards when he needs to, as he's proven many many many times.

I remember a 40-50 yard TD run that he had on a naked bootleg @ Buffalo like 8 years ago.

Manning almost stole Rhodes' limelight in the running game.
Not known for his mobility, Manning fooled everyone when, on a third-and-1, he faked a handoff and broke to his left, scoring on a naked bootleg from 33 yards.
"I didn't call it until the last minute," said Manning, who saw Buffalo's defense cheating the other way. "I'm 4-for-4 on those things: three times in college and my first one here."
It was the second-longest touchdown run by a Colts quarterback, 10 yards short of George Taliaferro's run in 1953.
Classic. I remember EVERYBODY being fooled.
