Polian disputes Lombardi report

Bill Polian says Peyton Manning can throw the ball and will return to play at a high level:

“It’s marked (improvement) from where he was back in September,” Polian said. “He threw it accurately, he threw it with a good, tight spiral, and he threw it with velocity.

“Generally, he looked like a pretty confident quarterback out there.”

Polian also indicated that Manning was able to make a variety of throws and throw across his body.

Guess you could say he’s not buying into either Bob Kravitz’s report that Peyton Manning was sporting a “noodle arm” nor Michael Lombardi’s claim that Manning can’t throw with velocity nor across his body.
