According to Michael Lombardi Peyton Manning is struggling to throw to his left. He told Bill Simmons on yesterday's B.S. Report that people working out with Manning have told him he's lacking arm strength and ability to throw across his body.
I don't think we can believe much of anything we read anymore regarding his condition. I remember, back in late December, reading a story, supposedly from Joseph Addai, stating that in the 25-30 yard zone, Peyton was throwing "NFL ready" passes. Now we read things like "noodle arm" and 40% loss of strength. Nor do I believe Collie or White or Gonzalez would comment on his arm strength (not if they knew what was good for them).
Well, Lombardi is never right about anything, so I'll just ignore this like I do all Peyton news, good or bad.
The careerism surrounding this whole thing, although expected, is still beyond disheartening. BKrav is free to immerse his readers in the craft of Lazy Sports Writing all he wants, but this story in the hands of Michael-Redskins-Redskins-Redskins-Lombardi? Ugh.
This won't matter at all cause Wayne probably won't be back on the team so he can just pass to the right..haha In all honesty.. this just sucks. When you read something like this (if it's true), how can we honestly believe he'll be back playing for anyone, no less our Colts next yr??
@coltsauth_todd Peyton is the Zoolander of quarterbacks. "I can't pass left." :(
