He looked like ****.    Can't play in the cold.    So, let's see......He'll be playing in Denver, Foxboro and NY if he gets that far.     Not exactly warm weather locales.
Looks like the troll is back.

He had no problem dominating in KC, or last week in Denver against Tennessee. He also made two throws - one to Caldwell, one to Decker - that were into windows the size of the football between defenders. They couldn't get anything going last night, but if he doesn't throw that pick and the Broncos score, no one is saying he had a bad game. He made one horrible decision that cost them, but the team as a whole just got dominated last night.

And unless NE runs the table, which is unlikely with no Gronk and their schedule, Denver won't be playing any AFC games outside of Denver. (cue up predictable "Ya, because they're gonna lose their first game!!" taunts)

OK, you've been calling KC **** for weeks.    I'll call Tennessee ****.   So he dominated two **** teams.   Yay.

Dude is miserable in cold weather.    It's just a fact.

Am sure U wear your sunglass's @ nite... Everywhere is a
winter in the NFL, this time of the year, & into next year...

However, despite the vast Wi$-WikiPedia that U R here @
this site, it's quite possible & factual that Peyton's game is
best viewed as difficulty playing @ nite, instead of the cold.

Seriously, the Foxboro event last month, ended near a late
mid-nite hour... Last nite's game was flooded with floodlites
under the stars... Peyton's career games on MNF, also don't
fare well in the "win" category... No one bets him @ nite...

Period... Okay, U can put your kewl sunglass's back-on now.

Nite games are a f*ther mucker, -& an entirely different
category of evaluation... Been kept track of for 3 dozen
years... Dome games are different, as well, not similar.

Are there stats to back this up, or is this one of those things we hear once and run with? Historically, when it's cold, he's on the road (home in dome), and QBs generally play worse on the road.  Just a thought.  Peyton at home against New England for the AFC Championship?  I'm taking Peyton.

Yes, there are.   4-12 in games under 32 degrees.   5% less on completion percentage, 50 yards less per game.   The ESPN talking heads mentioned that all QB drop in colder weather but Brady/Rodgers are neglibile.

12/13/2013 1:16 PM
Well, 4-12...those are road games.  And I get that Peyton seems to not take that step forward and up his game in the playoffs, but if he's 4-12, they're all road games except for Ravens last year, if that was under 32 degrees.

So everyone but Brady and Rodgers get worse.  It's not a knock on Peyton as much as it is a compliment to Brady and Rodgers.  And Brady and Rodgers likely play those cold weather games at home.

4-12 is awful.  It can't be explained oh those are road games, because Manning's record on the road when the temperature isn't bad is no where near that bad (75-43 overall on the road which includes the cold weather games so it is even better in warmer weather).  Manning just doesn't play well in the cold.  He never has and he never will. 
12/13/2013 1:21 PM
Pretty sure Favre was pretty good in cold weather.    Anyway, the top four current QBs are considered to be Brady, Rodgers, Manning and Brees.   No one is yapping about Brees in cold weather.
