Manning fans are going to have an equally daunting task convincing those of us who feel that his way is selfish, to think otherwise. For all of his stats, knowledge, ability, grasp of the offense, etc Manning didn't win THE big game in college and hasn't won A big game as a pro.
For all of Manning’s famed improvisational skills in play-calling before the snap, Manning loses all composure if the play doesn’t develop as planned after the snap. It’s not just that Manning is not very mobile.
It’s that the offense is based on timing, and any disruption of timing sends Manning into a panic. It also turns him against his teammates.
Congratulations, big fellah.
