Want to see Peyton Manning throw? If you said yes you are not the only one.
After the media circus that surrounded the end of the Peyton Manning Era in Indianapolis and the search for a new home for one of the most prolific passers in NFL history, you would think that we would know what the man was capable of. We've heard rumors. We've heard conjecture. We've heard rumors that refuted rumors, and then other rumors that refuted those rumors (yes, it's been tedious).
The Denver Broncos were willing to pay a pretty hefty sum for the 36-year old veteran so it would stand to reason that they would have seen something that said that the man still has it. That's great for the team (since it is their millions that will pay his salary), but what about the fans? Dang it! We want to see him throw!
And now we can.
Manning took part in the first day of OTAs with his new team on Monday, and the word has it the man looked sharp. Thanks to the video at the end of the post we no longer have to take someone else's word for it. We get to see for ourselves.
Caution--you will have to listen to talking heads, well--talking, but I promise that if you get through that you will see Peyton Manning throw just like the Peyton Manning Indianapolis Colts fans have grown to love (and will certainly miss next season).
