In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
For RKrap and Tony Dungy, each anti-BB and anti-Pats analysts:
Manning is 0-3 in postseason games where the temperature at kickoff is below 40 degrees. In those games with the Indianapolis Colts -- including a 41-0 loss to the New York Jets in January 2003, and a pair of losses to the New England Patriots in January of 2004 and 2005 -- Manning has thrown just one touchdown to seven interceptions.
That was BEFORE his 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble game vs Baltimore off the Bye.
So, 4 TDs and 9 INTs in weather below 40 degrees in the postseason.
I believe he is 1-4 in the regular season with weather 30 degrees or less.
Either way you cut it, it's clearly a bother to ol' Gomie. The wind will be rolling through at about 20 mph, too.
repeat, it's not the temperature, but the slow field.
the 2012 game you reference the Broncos with a sore armed Manning put up 35 points and his QBR was 88.3
the earlier games you reference were played in inclement weather and the field was a mess...
the cold weather thing has been proven incorrect numerous times...it is the slow field that bothered those teams
