Yeah it would have knocked me out this week except like so many other Peyton Manning owners, we are all enjoying a 1st round bye week from the safety of our couches.

See you next week
Next Thursday weather looks much better too. No rain in the 40s and an easier defense in sd. Thursday games are usually a curse though so I doubt manning has a 5 td game. But 300 and 3 seems probable.

Glad I have a bye though. This tenn pass def is legit and the weather is going to be bad. Manning will struggle
yeah, sure was a curse on Manning when he opened the season on a Thursday.
the curse is against 5 td

I sort of look at this as a trap game. I can see Denver letting down and the Titans making it their Super Bowl. I would not predict that Manning is going to do horrible, but I am thinking it will be a 15 - 18 point game which is just o.k for a qb of that caliber and will require a high scoring output from other positions. manning owners who field good teams will probably do fine.

Meh, gotta dance with who brung ya. I had a strong feeling he was going to have a huge year and there were people shocked I took him in the first round. In retrospect with all the RB busts this year, I stand by the decision. I'm envisioning low-end QB1 numbers this week. My opponent has some duds and rough matchups too, so it should be close. I would say any team that just has Peyton and a bunch of crap deserves to lose anyway. I have other studs on my roster.
you don't think you could've gotten him in the 2nd or 3rd?
lol. IIRC he went 1.01 in my league and that team just got the bye when I lost my game by two points.

yeah, I wasn't assuming 2 qb league -- 2 qb league, I don't know what's so shocking about taking manning in the first

i took him at 1.05 in a single QB league. havent regretted the pick one bit

I traded him and regretted it every bit.

Peyton Manning has been awful when the Temp is under 32 degrees

3 & 7, more Ints than tds and avg just over 200 yds per game.

The temp in Denver Sunday is going to be 16 degrees with a wind chill of 1 and a good chance of snow.

Titans are also a top 3 pass defense.

It was a nice ride ... but it is coming to a chilly end

Ten and the under
Team in my league has him, he didn't make the playoffs....

Neither did Rodgers, Brady, Ryan, Brees...crazy year

 
Definitely starting Manning, but I'm also very aware that a less than average Manning performance is more likely in the cold weather. It's not that I expect him to suck, but I just don't think it will be a 300+/3+TD game in the bitter cold (which he has been doing most weeks this year). It will be more conservative in the cold.

A very large majority of Manning's previous cold weather games have been on the road and against good competition (like playoff games). This is a regular season home game against a warm climate team....that's a big difference.

Manning's playoff game last year against the Ravens was a cold weather home game. He did fine from a statistic perspective.

Just went back and checked--Brees went at 1.02, Rodgers at 1.04 and Manning at 1.05, It's a one QB league but has length of td scoring for all positions.

Sorry for a sort of hijack. I am playing Demaryius at this point, but cold be damned it's the Tennessee defense and not knowing who Manning will target that has me more worried than anything else. I've only been to Denver once and it was really cold temperature wise, in the teens I believe. But because of the dry air--20 degrees and below in Denver did not feel nearly as bitter as 30 degrees in NC. Somehow I don't see that being as much of an issue as it would anywhere else.

I didnt check the weather conditions from last yrs home games in late Nov/Dec, but Manning averaged around 300yds and threw 3 tds in each game. Was Denver unseasonably warm last yr?

no. The Baltimore game and tomorrows game are unseasonably cold. Believe it or not, Denver average high temps in November-January are in the high 40's.

Denver is not the "Frozen Tundra" that many make it out to be.

Huh? The average high in Colorado is 54 in November and 46 in December.

Week 15 (54 degrees) vs. Browns - 339/3/1

Week 16 (35 degrees) vs. Chiefs - 304/3/0

Both were pretty bad defenses though.

Titans "top 3" pass D is going to get exposed this week, just like the Chiefs D.
It's Peyton so it would be no surprise but they gave up a total of 2 TD's to Kaepernick, Wilson, Luck (2x), Alex Smith, Rivers, and Roethlisberger.

Schaub - the only QB to throw more than one - had 3 TD's though so :shrug: .

Am I concerned about this week? Certainly. However, it's mitigated (somewhat) by a couple key items. Most of all, Manning and very importantly his TEAM is a cold weather team. They are not used to playing in the dome every week. And this comes to the second point - it's not just Manning, but the whole team that's used to being outside - and acclimated to the altitude at that. So, in summary:

1. Manning is more used to playing outside

2. The surrounding team (who is somewhat responsible for Peyton's issues previously, even if not the major reason) is also used to it.

So, Im concerned, but not as concerned as if he played in a dome with a team in a dome all year and had to go to Denver or somewhere else and face the elements.
While it's true the Broncos are not a dome team, they are not a cold weather team. This team starts with Manning; he is the engine that makes it go, and since he is not a cold-weather QB, and the team is built around him, the team, by definition, isn't a cold-weather team. Does that mean they can't win in the cold? No, but it would be unwise to expect Manning to be playing at his peak performance in freezing cold weather, when he has historically not done that in the past, just because his team doesn't play in a dome.

no. The Baltimore game and tomorrows game are unseasonably cold. Believe it or not, Denver average high temps in November-January are in the high 40's.

Denver is not the "Frozen Tundra" that many make it out to be.
It was in the 60s on Tuesday. It's suppose to be in the 40s on Thursday.

 
Cold weather is not the 1985 Bears D. Seriously don't bench Peyton because this 2013 Titans D is going to get rolled.

You can NOT sit a TD record-breaking-season - Peyton Manning! You kidding me!!!
This. Anyone who sits Manning deserves to lose.

isn't the low like minus 20 right now? sheesh

 
Interesting thought about Manning and "cold games." Almost every single game that qualifies was a road game. If you look at the opponents in the cold games, they're almost all playoff teams. Maybe he just has depressed stats because they're road games against playoff teams?

This is true. It always seems to be the Pats or ravens who are always strong defensively

 
I expect Peyton to throw for 5-6 TD's against the Titans. Titans always handle great QB's poorly.
yeah looking at the titans schedule I really dont see too many top flight passing attacks on that list

sometime the whole top5 pass defense thing can get over blown.

Houston I believe is #1 vs the pass and brady threw for 370 jsut lastweek (indoors granted)
yeah, but that's brady, dude
your point? that's Peyton Manning dude... who just threw 5 tds against a very good KC defense on the road. The titans have a top 7 pass d not 3, but they have never faced a Possessed Peyton who already has 41 tds through 12 games and I think is going to shatter the record.... 340-4 is possible tomorrow folks . 41 pts 6 point per td leagues. :moneybag: :moneybag: :moneybag: :moneybag: :moneybag: :moneybag: :moneybag:

If Schaub can throw for 3 against the titans I don't even see what brainiac opened this thread because Peyton with a healthy J.Thomas to boot, can easily throw 4 tds. This thread is garbage, idiotic.

Interesting counter-thought is that pre-Denver Manning played all of his home games in a dome. Hence, there was never an opportunity to play in the cold at home. Certainly, the home game in January at Denver vs Baltimore (not a great D) is yet another of the data points that cumulatively translate into Manning's bad rep in cold weather.

While they did allow 3 TD's to one bad QB, they also completely shut down 6 good ones.

I'm putting the O/U on his TD's at 2, but I think 1 is a little more likely than 3.

Manning will be in a glove. (I don't know what that means, thought I would just point that out).

Not much wind by the looks of it; but wind/chill for some reason expected to be at -4. And snow can be tougher to see through than rain, but I'm guessing there won't be that much...

Since week 2 when Hou & Schaub put 3 TDs on TEN (on 48 attempts), no QB has thrown multiple TDs. Five have been zeroed.

Also, about that Baltimore playoff game, TEN likely won't be scoring that much, so not as much pressure on Denver to push it up the field.

TEN is a bottom 10 rush defense. Moreno and Ball, and DEN DST, owners are probably thinking, "great start, better than usual."
