Peyton Manning Pick-Six Elicits Big Reaction From Twitter Football Experts (Video)
Peyton Manning definitely looked better in Week 2 against the Chiefs than he did in Week 1 against the Ravens. However, he still threw a couple of pretty bad passes, including one that turned into his second pick-six of the season.
If we were talking about Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson, it wouldn’t be that big a deal. We would consider it an aberration, a statistical fluke.
But this is Peyton Manning, the greatest quarterback of his generation in the eyes of most non-Patriots fans. And Peyton Manning is, what, 50 years old or something? So after the second Peyton Manning pick-six, people had a lot of strong opinions. And obviously, they shared them on Twitter.

This is partly on Peyton Manning’s weak arm, but this is a pretty awful offensive system from Gary Kubiak.

At least Peyton’s Nationwide commercials are good.

Are they right? Is Peyton’s arm dead? Maybe. But after four games last year everyone said Brady was done. And you know how that turned out.
