..they tried to do this early in the season by running other offensive packages that weren't part of the "manning" offense at different stretches ...and the offense with manning didn't look so hot. So they just went all manning and got rolling, but when u get to the playoffs and face teams with solid defenses, they know how to slow that down and frustrate him...
Manning ego gets in the way of him at times. He never listens to his coaches all the time and gets a major free pass from the media.
