Does Peyton Still Have It?


  September 17, The Denver broncos Peyton Manning and the Atlanta falcons Matt Ryan went head to head in week two in the N.F.L on Monday night football. Peyton Manning was going for his second win as the starting quarterback with his new team the Denver broncos, but Matt Ryan would have none of it as the falcons defeat the broncos 27 to 21 and gave Denver it’s first loss on the season.
 Since Peyton Manning return to the NFL, there was a lot of talk regarding If Peyton would return to be the elite quarterback that he once was. The one time super bowl champion and 4 time mvp had a lot to prove .Coming back after missing the entire 2011 season due to an almost career ending neck injury. After undergoing two neck surgeries he was able to play in the 2012 season, since his return to the NFL Peyton started the season 1 and 0 defeating the Steelers in week 1. Peyton on Monday night didn’t look to be the great Peyton that he is known for being. For the first time in his career he threw 3 interceptions on the first 3 drives of the game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Manning’s struggles  this pass Monday night on the field raised a lot of questions, if he still has what it takes to get the job done. Right now it is just to soon to say as we are only going into week 3, but by week 7 we should have a pretty solid idea on what type of season Manning will have with the Denver Broncos.

    Op-Ed: Football: The Field of Concussions

    While American football is seen as an extremely popular, fun, and worldly-viewed contact sport, it is also the demise of a myriad of brains.
