Saw this shared on Reddit and wanted to post here. Just finished watching myself. Excellent breakdown by Peyton on a bunch of plays Mac made in the Cleveland game. If you happen to have ESPN+ then you can view it. I have access due to having the Disney+ bundle that includes it.

A lot of great sections, but my favorite was at the end where Peyton says:
"I gotta say here... on play 60, Brian Hoyer's in... I never got to come out of a game as a rookie! I never beat anybody 45-7! I think I got BEAT 45-7 by the Jets, by Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells, that was a lot of fun... So, man... Mac's got it pretty good, he's resting in the fourth quarter, deciding where to go to dinner that night. Impressive game by him. If he was in his 10th year I'd say I was impressed. He's a rookie, I'm really impressed."

Manning knows good quarterbacking isn't about running around and throwing across your body. Somehow the league has forgot that. Good for us though. While everyone was drafting "physical specimens" who we don't even know if can play QB Patriots went out and drafted a guy who has the fundamentals.

It wasn't even that long ago manning, Brady, Brees were dominating the league. And Brady still is

Yeah, that also makes me scratch my head. Brees just retired and obviously Brady v. Manning was a headline matchup for over a decade. Brady is still killing it in his 40s. But no... Mahomes is what you need. And I mean, Mahomes is great, but in my experience these guys who run around a lot don't seem to be able to button things up and play structured and inside the pocket all that much... Being able to make something out of nothing is great, but if you're trying to do it on every play, a lot of the times you might just end up making nothing out of something instead. Compare that to just taking what the defense gives you, like a Brady, Manning, Brees...

Mac’s ability to make every type of throw is incredible for a rookie.

Given the immense admiration and respect we have all had for Peyton for so many years I think Ian should make this a Content Thread, this way we can track all of the ooohs and aaaahs that HOF QB’s shower upon our future first ballot HOF rookie QB. No haters allowed, this thread will be for us homers only.
