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.

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
