Default Peyton versus Wade

Quote:
Today's piece of Colts' history is brought to you by Blue Blood: Tales of Glory of the Indianapolis Colts The question was raised on Twitter yesterday about Peyton Manning's performance verses Wade Phillips' defenses. Manning hasn't faced a team coached or coordinated by Phillips since 2005. The Colts are 5-4 with Manning at the helm against a Phillips defense. They played six times from 1998-2000 (splitting the games 3-3). The Colts stomped the Falcons (Manning threw 5 touchdowns) and then beat the Chargers in 2004 before losing in 2005. Overall, Manning has as passer rating of 84.5 against Phillips defense with 15 TD and 10 picks, but two of those games were in his rookie year. Since then, he's posted a rating 92.9 with 12 TD and 6 picks, with 5 wins in 7 games. But again, none of the games were recent. The strangest result was a 44-20 Indianapolis win in 2000. The Colts led 9-6 at the half, but ran off 35 second half points. The odd part was Peyton'...
I am not sure how accurate this website is or the author, but I am curious on how well Wade's defense was against manning over the years ,ESP being Manning likes to get the ball out quickly. Wade's defense likes to come in a hurry
