MHS Rapid React: Manning still shaking off the rust

Peyton Manning to Los Angeles

Preseason Week 2 brought far more questions than answers about how Peyton Manning would adapt to new head coach Gary Kubiak’s offense. The Denver “O” looked more like what fans had been accustomed to in Manning’s first three years in Denver than what they had expected to see in Kubiak’s trademark run-first attack.

And while Saturday’s preseason Week 3 matchup with San Francisco brought a bit more balance, Manning certainly wasn’t firing on all cylinders. The 39-year-old quarterback underthrew his receivers on a few occasions and left the game at halftime with more interceptions (one) than touchdowns (zero).

The final line on Manning was 14-for-21 for 124 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, three sacks (21 yards) and a 62.4 passer rating.

As always, the MHS team was active as Manning tried to shake off the rust, offering insight and analysis as the game unfolded. Here are some of the highlights…
