I believe that even the inferior teams will slow him down quite a bit if they follow the prescribed formula of disguising their intended defense until after Manning calls his audibles.
Thats an interesting point, Steelpit.

Do you think you will see most teams shifting their alignment right before the snap this year when they play the Colts?

Personally, I think he will struggle to sell the play-action unless Addai and Rhodes put up some good numbers early season.

I remember one trick play he tried to pull against the Patriots in the 2004 playoffs - he walked along the LOS waving his hands in the air (as he does just about every snap) and the centre snapped the ball direct to the Edge who ran for the 1st down.

The refs called an infraction and the Colts bench went crazy - they had planned this for a whole week.

Turns out Manning ruined the play, because as he went in motion he became an eligible receiver - and he forgot to stop moving before the ball was snapped - excellent call by the refs.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing if teams do decide to mix things up on D right before the snap - I think only very disciplined teams such as the Steelers and Patriots can pull this off on a regular basis without confusing themselves.

In last year's playoff game against the Colts, the Steelers marched into the Colts' backyard and totally dominated the Colts and Peyton Manning from start to finish. Had it not been for a bad call on the Polamalu INT, the fumble and THE TACKLE, that game was over before the first half.
You are quite correct - it was tough conditions for throwing that day in Gillette.

Thats a good point, that i'll concede that Peyton historically struggles more outside his dome and that the Steelers had a tougher job containing him.

But thats to be expected with that much talent the Colts have on offense and the fact the Colts were playing in the nice comfort of the RCA Dome.
Thats another fair point.

The conditions make the comparison a little unfair - i'll hold my hand up to that one.

Sometimes I dont see the woods through the stats
