Peyton Manning is mad
 
The Denver Post says that is great news for the Broncos:

Four-time league MVP Peyton Manning, at practice Thursday, had a strong debut with the Broncos. But he threw three interceptions in the first quarter of their Week 2 game against Atlanta. (John Leyba, The Denver Post)

There's only one way the Broncos beat Houston on Sunday: Peyton Manning is going to have to dress up his wobbly passes so they look prettier than the tight spirals thrown by Houston quarterback Matt Schaub.

The Texans are a stronger team than Denver.

So, for the Broncos to win, Manning needs to play more like a feisty legend than a 36-year-old quarterback whose arm strength is an open, festering topic of debate.

Hey, relax. He's working on it.

During the fleeting moments when practice was open to prying eyes on Thursday, Manning asked his pals in the media to step back from the field during a passing drill. Why?

"Those wobblers still hurt if they hit you in the head," Manning warned.

It was a zinger that would do any "Saturday Night Live" writer proud.

Even when Manning's passes lack zip his humor maintains its bite. Even when his performance on the field is less than razor sharp, there's a steely edge to Manning you've got to love.

Despite his well-deserved reputation for being cool under pressure, there's a molten competitiveness never far from the surface of Manning. He's a sore loser. And that's good, especially in a business where the line between success and failure is thin, even for players with Hall of Fame credentials.

When Manning falls short of awesome, we've discovered he can be PGM. Peyton Grumpy Manning.

In the aftermath of his first setback in a Broncos uniform, and it could certainly be argued
Manning was the No. 1 reason for defeat, Peyton has displayed a prickly side.

Asked about his arm strength, Manning responded with a "whatever" any adolescent with an attitude could understand. Without being prompted, Manning wanted everybody to understand the proper reading of his body language on the sideline during the 27-21 loss in Atlanta was "determined" rather than "dejected."

Quote:

The last thing any athlete, especially a legendary athlete, wants to be seen as? Yesterday's news. Fair or not, Manning has two choices: Get his mojo back. Or stay stuck in the 24/7 churn of NFL speculation regarding the possible erosion of his skills.

I asked Broncos receiver Brandon Stokley, who has a long history with Manning, if he can tell when the veteran quarterback is ticked. "You can kind of look at him and tell," Stokley said. "It's pretty obvious."

It is obvious that for the first time, Denver has witnessed what Manning looks like when he's mad.

And somebody's got to pay.

Houston, you've got a problem.
Rest of story


Keep in mind that Manning, even with his comfort level playing with his system familiar Colts has not been very good at gaining vengeance after his past three-interception games (15). In those games, he has reached a ragged 8-7 record with 26 TDs versus 23 picks.

I think everyone knows we'll be getting Peyton Manning's best. I just don't think we'll be getting the best Peyton Manning.

Was going to post the same thing. For qb's I don't buy the anger angle. Those guys don't need to play angry and upset.

I think after Sundays game ....he will be even more mad and frustrated because all his old notes on the Texan defense did not work this time.....lol

Another "Houston, you have a problem" how utterly original.

Brian Cushing is mad 24/7. Cushing's anger can hurt a guy.

Re: Peyton Manning is mad
 
I'd be mad too if my arm was shot. He was exposed last game. Can he still pull off a win here or there? Absolutely. But the start to last game was not pretty. If he shows the same arm strength throwing to the right against Joseph, he'll be eaten alive. Can't wait.

Anger can't make nerves regenerate.

All this "it's the same old Peyton" talk from the Texans camp is gamesmanship. They are going to wreck him.

Peyton being determined is a real factor, but it'll be minimized if we can run the ball at will.

Good, let him be mad. Maybe he'll try to force those wobblers. My only concern is how the Texans secondary handles those bad passes. Got to be tougher to catch, right?

Manning mad might mitigate monotony.

Those are irrelevant historical statistics. I didn't see the article label him as "mad"; it basically depicted him as being a strong competitor and therefore disappointed with his performance in the Atlanta game. That's understandable.

All stats are historical.

Brilliant. Did I say that they were not?

But some are significant and others less so.

The vein in his forehead must be HUGE when he's mad.
