Several NFL scouts and analysts are beginning to believe Peyton Manning doesn't have the same ability as he used to. One scout went as far as to say, "Peyton Manning can't throw the ball anymore," and Ron Jaworski notes Manning's does not have a tight spiral on the ball right now.
Fantasy Impact: A 1-2 record to begin your first season back after taking a whole year off appears to cause widespread panic. Manning is going to experience some growing pains with his new team, especially after sitting out all of 2011 recovering from neck surgery. The Broncos have lost to two of the only three undefeated teams in the league, so let's not abandon ship quite yet. Manning is still putting up solid fantasy numbers aside from his three interceptions in Atlanta. As his schedule gets easier and he settles in with his Denver squad, things will improve.
