5. Peyton Manning, Broncos
- 2014: 101.5 QB Rating, 4,727 Yards, 39 TD, 15 INT
Speaking of the Mannings, big brother Peyton Manning still deserves his due.
I don’t care about some reports revealing the 39-year old surefire hall of famer can’t feel his fingertips at the moment, and lost even more off the fastball.
It doesn’t phase me one bit that most realize the guy now has a noodle-arm.
Peyton Manning is the best regular season player in NFL history. I won’t believe the decline until I actually see it with my own eyes.
Besides, this league can be dominated through the air with short, designed, annoying passes which the defense simply cannot defend. It’s not a league where you’re forced to through deep to keep the defense honest. Bubble screens, smokes and quick slants dominate.
Though the conversation once again surrounded Manning and the Denver Broncos disappointing in the playoffs, Manning still threw for 4,727 yards and 39 touchdowns a season ago.
Not too shabby.
