One more thing. I thought watching the Colts "hurry up" offense during the Washington game was revolutionary. It was a different type of football than anything played before. It was almost like a basketball game or a hockey game. Constant action. Constant flow. All of this created and orchestrated by Manning. It was like hydrogen cars or taking a vacation in space. Football at a totally different level than ever seen before. The "pace" of the game was incredible. Forget about wins and losses. Forget about TD's and Interceptions. What Peyton Manning does and has done for a number of years now is groundbreaking. No one else has really been able to do it.........to sustain it. I think you'll see more and more of this as time goes on. The quarterback as maestro controlling the pace of the game, not enabling the opposition to substitute and do the things they want to do, and bringing a high level of conditioning into the game. Breathtaking, IMO.
