Alleged video of Peyton Manning Friday workout

The video below of Peyton Manning throwing the football in a workout has hit the web and ESPN. It is sold as a video of Manning on Friday throwing at Duke University.

1. Manning has indeed been confirmed to be at Duke these past few days.

2. There is zero confirmation this is the Duke field or that the video is from yesterday, although ESPN ran with it as if it is legitimate.

3. The video was obviously taken without Manning's permission thus the poor and apparent undercover nature of it. It is only 27 seconds long. Can you say surreptitious?

4. If the video is legit, it shows Manning does have the ability to move fairly well.

5. If the video is legit, it shows Manning does have the ability to throw deeper patterns as one of his passes goes a good 50 yards.

6. Manning looks good but not great in the video. His drop is not quick. His spirals are all not tight.

7. The velocity on Manning's out throw is very good.

So that's a glimpse of what Manning is doing, assuming the video taken in secret is legitimate. That is a big assumption. I believe the grain of salt approach is best here.

Props to reader Michael Heck for passing the video along.

Reilly,


Pot meet kettle....

Craig M,

It's all on NFL.com. Tony Dungy is even speculating that a hit on Manning in a 2006 game against the Redskins was the beginning of Manning's neck problems. Again, its talk that teams could loose draft picks. Will it happen, I don't know, but it could be very interesting if a team like the Redskins do loose picks. It has been reported that the bounty system was halted once Williams left the Skins, this indicates that maybe team officials knew about it, thus making the team liable for punishment.

Football is American. The Queens English does not apply. In the NFL, its offense and defense.

Craig man,

You are all over the place. You can't argue a simple point without wandering off to some other criteria.

The question is was Flacco worth trading up for. I'd say a QB that has taken you to several playoffs in his first few years was worth it. Now you want to discredit him by saying he is not the reason they made the playoffs. That is your opinion. It's a team game. Fact is he was the QB on the playoff runs. A lesser QB like Henne would have prevented them from making the playoffs.

Stick the point. Was Flacco worth a trade up or not? That is the point we are on. You want to wander off and give credit elsewhere because you can't admit Flacco was a good move for them.

What an ignormaus! No you're going to tell us how to speak and spell? Yeah, you're right....the Canadian media changes how to spell words to keep the NFL happy. MORON!

Bottom line Craig, you would rather play it safe than take a chance. Not me, not with a prospect like RG3, I'm willing to got the distance. Playing it safe is what this team has done for too long and it hasn't worked.

And for your information smart8ss football was played in Canada LONG before there was football played in the NFL. Earliest games go back to before the 20th century. I believe the Toronto Argonauts are the oldest professional football team in existence today. Myself and most Canadians happen to prefer the version that's played south of the border.

Reilly you do not speak for me.
Your are an ugly American.
Craig M, if you wish the Dolphins only the best, then I would take you as a friend over this intellectually challenged POS that calls itself Reilly.

Grady S,

Thanks bud. I know this guy doesn't represent Americans as a whole. Every country has a few rotten apples.

The guy was calling me a racist today too....doesn't know a thing about me but somehow I'm a racist. MORON!

Besides, I bet Canada gets an NFL expansion team someday.

Craig

You still have avoided your own topic. I have pressed you a few times now and you can not admit that Flacco was a wise move for the Ravens. In your mind, their success has nothing to do with him and the trade up was a mistake.

So you won't even accept logic, you are just determined to twist the facts to suit you as you please.

You asked me if I will be on the Peyton band wagon if he does well. That tells me a lot about how you think, maybe that is how you are.

The only thing I've said is I disagree with those that say Peyton at 80 percent is better than most. I disagreed.

Now you can twist that and turn it however you like to make yourself feel right, but you will only be wrong to twist my words.

Craig you gave me a list of trade ups that failed. I can give you a list of #8 picks that failed. So whats your point?

No matter what who ever is doing the picking needs to be evaluating the talent properly.

Heck I can give you a list of trade downs that failed. Your point has no meaning.

Reilly,

My last comment to you tonight and then you can go and play with someone else. Flacco wasn't a trade up. The Ravens took him at 17 because that's where they were poised to pick. On top of that, Flacco is not the strwa that stirs the drink in Baltimore. I guess you don't see that. Where do you have him in your top QBs in the NFL. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the price to trade up for RGIII is going to be too stepp in my opinion. You're back to talking about Manning as 80 per cent healthy again, like you even hae a clue. I don't care about Manning's status today. All I care about is his status week one in September. Neither you or anybody else knows what that'll be week 1.

BLOG FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Craig, don't believe me, believe the NFL:

Secondly, you just don't get it dude. Try cleaning your ears. I have never once stated where Manning is at in rehab. Comprendo? Is that so friggen hard for you to comprehend? Several here are stating Manning at 80 percent would be better than most. That is what I am disagreeing with. I don't think Manning at 80 percent is better than most. At 100 percent he only won one title on a very good team, so at 80 percent at his age, I don't see that better than most. Is that so difficult to comprehend?

Nobody here can possibly have a clue where Manning is truly at in rehab, and I've never suggested where he is at. I'm merely responding to the hypothetical being put out for debate.

The funny thing is Craig... you are hoping your heart out the Ravens didn't trade up for Flacco just so you can be right. They traded up actually and then back down.

The point is, trade ups work and fail. Trade downs work and fail. Staying put works and fails. Its not whether you trade up or down or stay put, its all on the ability of the GM to evaluate where the talent is.

No fight, just some seriously poor communication and one person hell bent on being right :)

the Ravens eventually had to trade for Steve McNair a few years later and finally fixed the long search for a franchise quarterback by trading up from 26 to 18 for Joe Flacco.

Kris makes the argument that if Jeff '8 and 8' Fisher doesn't want RG3, why would anyone else?(Maybe its because everyone else doesn't already have young up and coming #1 overall QB like Fisher has in Bradford?)

Reilly....is that WHAT I SAID...or did it look a something MORE like this.....

I got a question for ALL of those that wanted Fisher so bad....

Fisher is already staking his reputation on the stance that RG3 will NOT be the player that Sam Bradford is....

If Fisher doesn't believe he is worth it....why do you guys...

Reily....you have spent the past few hours telling us all what a reading comprehension problem Craig M has.....when YOU really should be lookin in the mirror......

People in GLASS houses shoudn't throw stones.....

What you THINK I SAID....and what i ACTUALLY POSTED....coudn't be futher from reality.....

My post was discussion based....I asked how can the posters felt....IT had nothing to do with the rest of the NFL....

POT MEET KETTLE...thy name is Reily....

Kris, you must be related to Craig. You are the one who can't read and comprehend.

Fisher already has a #1 overall QB that he believes in. You are clutching at straw to suggest that means he doesn't like RG3. It means they are committed to their incumbant recent #1 overall pick who now has a couple of years experience to build on. Now is not the time you throw your #1 overall way along with your investment unless you believe that qb is a bust.

You are clutching at straw with that analysis.

Kris,

You can not say Fisher doesn't think RG3 is worth it. What would Fisher do if they did not already have a franchise QB? That is the question. We don't know, my guess is he would take him.

Post wher i said he didn't like RG3....

I SAID (READ SLOWLY THIS TIME).....

He is taking the STANCE that RG3 will not become a better QB than Sam Bradford....

POINT BLANK...PERIOD.....

read the post for WHAT IT SAYS...and NOT what you want it to say....

Kris, here is what you said:

Fisher is already staking his reputation on the stance that RG3 will NOT be the player that Sam Bradford is....

If Fisher doesn't believe he is worth it....why do you guys...

Posted by: kris | March 04, 2012 at 03:47 PM

You clearly said Fisher does not think he is worth it. You don't know that friend. You have NO IDEA what Fisher thinks. The Rams have a first round overall pick and huge investment in Bradford that they apparently believe in. In that case, you don't throw that investment away. To draw conclusions such as your own words stated is simply preposterous.

If a coach/GM has the chance toUPGRADE the team....and they DO NOT do it.....

then they are neglegent in their responsibilities to the owner....the team...and the fans....

Clearlly Fisher and the GM (who he picked btw) are saying there is no need to upgrade...because they have their QB....

In a few years...if RG3 becomes what many of you believe he will....and the Rams..ans Bradford are stagnant....

The the judgement HAS to fall on Fisher...

How can you possibly disagree with that....

Its PREPOSTEROUS...REALLY?????

lol....

I'd say its more of an accurate assesment of the situation...considering....

but if you like preposturious......then call it what you want...

However...

you may want to consult WEBSTER on the meaning of preposturous....

Kris

Man do you always reach this far and shy away from reality? Do you realize they currently have a huge investment in Bradford? Do you realize they just had the luxury of a #1 pick? If you are happy with what you have you look make the most of the draft by improving your weakest areas and building a team.

I seriously don't believe that you believe your own logic. I think you have a case of Peyton love,

Kris

How many teams would dump there #1 overall pick after 2 years if they were happy with the QB? I'd say zero. The question is what would the Rams do if they didn't have a franchise QB

The Rams are taking advantage of an opportunity to gain more picks and improve the rest of the team. Most likely any team in their same position would do the same thing. And you know that.

Marino was a choker. Manning is the real deal.

Reily....

what you don't understand is that I am neither arguing for NOR against RG3.....

I merely believe that FISHER is staking his future on BRADFORD over RG3....

how you can't/won't come to that conclusion is beyond me....

I am not saying he is right for stickong with Bradford....I am not saying he is wrong for not wanting RG3....

I am saying his ACTIONS indicate he wants BRADFORD more than he wants RG3....and I wanted to know how the pro Fisher crowd felt about it.....

Kris

Bradford is under contract. It's a business too you know. Fisher is not staking anything here. He sees the upside of getting more picks for his dismal team more valuable than replacing one of the best players already on his team and under contract. You are jumping to conclusions.

Teams do not give up on first round overall picks in two years even if they are playing as poorly as Jamarcus Russell! Why can't you see that?

I seriously can not believe you believe your own argument.

Fisher is right. Bradford is far better then RG.

I feel like I am debating ice is colder than fire and some of you are trying to prove otherwise. Fine. I really don't know what your motives are, but I don't even believe you believe your own arguments.

I will leave the stage now and let the rest of you continue on agreeing with each other.

For the Record, I'd be happy with Peyton at 100 percent. To those of you who suggest Peyton at 80 percent is better than the rest of our options, I disagree. Simple as that. (Now Craig don't come back and ask me how I can know where Peyton's rehab is at, because I have no idea)

Reily....

I don' t really care what you believe......

Just understand that I stick by my orginal post....

I belive you still haven't fully comprehend my first post....and it really was quite simple....thats if you were looking for a debate..and not a fight.....

I also believe that i will most likely never see your screen name again....

Good Day Sir......

Kris & Reilly,

Fisher CAN not give up on Bradford at this time no matter what he thinks of him. If Fisher thinks RG3 will be better or worse than Bradford doesn't mean anything. The salary cap ramifications dictate what the Rams will do. I think Bradford signed for something of 5 years 75 million, right? If you drafted RG3, then what do they do with Bradford? Trade him? What team wants that contract considering the Rams want someone else? What would that say of Bradford? I would rather loose the picks and pay 20 mil for RG3 than pay the rest of Bradford's contract.

Therefore, Fisher is only doing what the team invested in before he came along. PERIOD!

Actually, Reilly makes a lot of sense in these two discussions. Agree with you in many instances Kris(not so much Craig), but I think Reilly has a pretty good point. JMO

The Signal/dbmfins....

Thanks for the input.....I will think about those things...along with Reily's post....

Sign Manning draft and Russell Wilson in the mid rounds to be groomed!

Another article by main stream media about what the sheeple see and know, ... is really not what they see and know

"alleged video of Peyton Manning throwing"

just like the over 16,000 alleged videos posted on you tube alone of CHEMPLANES ALLEGEDLY SPRAYING EXPANDING WHITE TOXIC PLUMES KNOWN AS CHEMTRAILS

"Allegedly" the expanding chemtrails only coincidentally where created by scientists to like like Cirrus clouds to fool the dumbed downed sheeple

All those Chemtrails... Must be a conspiracy theory, for nut job whacko pinko commie loony folks

No such thing as global chemtrail spraying or chemplanes or chemical drone air craft or chemtrails

Just ask the government

Then ask the where the 54 Billion dollars to rebuild Iraq disappeared?

answer:

U Must Be Crazy ?

U Must Be Nuts !

have a HAARPy day :(

*chemtrails deliberatly expand and linger to appear to look like innocuous Cirrus clouds to the dumbed downed sheeple

The cabalists for their part are still fighting to preserve their power and control. The latest scam they are working on involves the $6 trillion worth of 1934 gold back securities that were seized in Switzerland recently. These bonds were tied to financier and Bush/Clinton bagman Mark Rich of Glencore Commodities. The plan was to place Hillary Clinton at the head of the World Bank and have her use the World Bank to launder the bonds and give the money to the communist government in China. The Chinese, in return, were supposed to turn a blind eye to the continuing European Central Bank and Federal Reserve Board scams.

The cabalists have also tried yet again to assassinate Russia’s Vladimir Putin in an attempt to regain control of Russia in a desperate attempt to revive the insane plan to get the Russians to help start the World War 3 they feel is needed to complete their plans for world domination.

The pentagon has already told top cabalist attack dog Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel that they would shoot down any Israeli planes that tried to trigger this war by attacking Iran.

The CBS news network in the US now has also broken with the cabalists and has begun information warfare with cabalist propaganda outlets like CNN and Fox.

A must see for the ignorant sheeple on what are chemtrails:

With all of the talk still surrounding Matt Flynn on Dolphins blogs the one thing that has been lost is the fact that Jeff Ireland will be making the decision on which free agent quarterback, if any, Miami signs this year.
I highly doubt Ireland is willing to give Flynn a $10 million per year deal, or higher, with about $20 million guaranteed, especially when Flynn is an unkown quantity. With only two starts in his 4 year career there is nobody, other than Philbin and someone within the Green Bay organization, who knows for sure what Flynn can and can’t do and, maybe, they aren’t even sure because of his limited playing time.
The problem with this whole scenario is that some people are thinking that Matt Flynn will be the 2nd coming of Aaron Rodgers if he ends up in Miami. The logic behind that is Flynn spent 4 years in the Packers system and Philbin will be running the Packers system in Miami. Therfore, Flynn is a perfect fit.
It would seem logical that, if any team would be interested in Flynn, it would be Miami but the knowledge Miami possesses on Flynn could prevent them from making a terrible mistake in signing him. He was a 7th round pick and that, in itself, says something. Players who are considered future NFL starters aren’t taken in the 7th round.
Everyone has gone round and round on this issue but we are starting to see some comments form NFL people about what they think of Flynn. In the NFP article of March 4th a combination of GM’s, personnel men and scouts were interviewed and asked about their impressions. The concensus was more “proceed with caution” because he hasn’t proved anything yet. Flynn’s limited starts and abilities had one scout say “he’s nothing more than a backup until he proves himself.”
In the end, it is Ireland’s decision and I doubt that he will be willing to spend the money on an unproven quarterback. If he could bring him in and sign him to a contract tha was reasonable based on what he is actually worth and have him compete against Moore for a starting position Irleand probably would. But, that’s not going to happen because Flynn is looking for the big pay day. If Miami balks at that he could have trouble signing that kind of contract anywhere. If Flynn is smart he would go with Miami even if they offer him less because he has the greatest chance of success there than anywhere else. But, when the 2012 season begins, I doubt we will see Matt Flynn in a Dolphins uniform.
Miami has signed several free agenst over Ireland’s tenure; each of which had done something at the postion they played – Dansby, Marshall and Bush, for example. To me it says Ireland is looking for someone with a lot more experience at quarterback than Flynn. If it is the most important position on the offense I don’t think he “takes a chance” on someone who may or may not work out.

For all of you stuck on RGIII, is he better than Vick? How many superbowls has Vick won? Not to mention all those valuable picks to be given up to move up and get him at #2. This team is not just one good QB away from contending with teams like the Pats. Too many holes. A healthy Peyton Manning, even if its just for 1 or 2 seasons, I'll take him any day. He can read defenses, change plays at the line, is super accurate, extremely smart and experienced. If he takes Miami to the big game, or even to the playoffs, it'll all be more than worth it. Win now, worry about the future later!

I agree Lou. I don't see Flynn coming to Miami, and I don't see GB f-tagging him either.

Even though RG3 would be great, a healthy Manning is the best option.

The most important thing that know one is saying is what if we get outbid for Manning. Or he would rather play somewhere else.

???

how many TIME HAVE WE SEEN AN INJURED PLYER WITH BIG INJURY LIKE NECK INJURY COMES BACK AND NEVER RECOVER ,JUST TO GET HIS RETIEREMENT PACKAGE ?


IN THE FIRST HIT MANNING RECIVE ,HE WILL RETIRE ........

Two things are very real.
Peyton Manning at QB
Toxic Chemtrails in the sky

ok 3 things,
Mando passing a lot of wind

Lou, how can you say this point was lost?? It's been discussed and broken down here and on the sports sites many many times.


Your post is a long rant on the obvious that has been stated many times over.

We could trade back to 17. Then trade back up to around 12. If nobody we want is there, we trade back for yet another pick to 23. Then we should have 23,27 and 28 which is better than just 8. Or we can trade all the way out of round one for several second round picks, exchange our 8 and have multiple #2's. That is if Cincy trades with Cleveland and Washington swaps with St Louis and Denver trades back so that Atlanta can trade up.

Manning is the best.
Manning is the biggest draw.
Manning is a proven NFL winner every year.
Manning allows the Dolphins to keep 2 first round draft picks plus 3 other picks.
Manning will play for incentive based contract.
Manning was chosen by our resident super fan blogger, "HOME"

So, Manning is a no brainer for Miami.

M2M

Manning to Miami!

chemtrails today, ... look in the sky, dum dum

One thing lost in our discussions has been the need for an upgrade at the QB position.

DC, any thoughts?

I was on the Rg3 bandwagon, but if Manning is healthy which is a big if, it would be best to go after him first. Worst case scenario he sucks or gets injured and we'll have a shot at Barkley or Jones in 2013.

Clue, that's exactly right. Nothing is forever except for avoidance. There is no downside to signing peyton is despite what mando says. If he's the old peyton, Miami is very prevalent again. If he fails, we are no worse than we are today. Time for this franchise to do SOMETHING of significance at the position. Time to play big boy NFL. Kudos to Mr. Ross for forcing the issue. Its about time after years of avoidance and men just trying to preserve their own jobs by being afraid to make the wrong move.

MARK....... (( THERE'S NO DOWNSIDE TO SIGNING PEYTON ))............REALLY??????

JUST ABOUT 15 MILLIONS OF ROSS'S MONEY AND A GUARANTEE ,WE WILL ROTTEN IN THE CELLAR ........

Here is a breakdown of what 311 of the mock sites are saying Miami will do.

161 say OL
90 say DL
22 say QB
8 say WR
22 say RB
5 say DB
3 say ILB

So if we are to believe the majority of the mockers out there then OL is what Miami will do.

I for one hope we don't go that route.

The sight I used for this info was:
