Peyton Manning is a running threat? Just because he may have 3 WR's I don't think that would truly be considered a spread offense in the sense that the college systems are running. Manning is as prototypical as they get as far as a true pocket passer is concerned.
this is a bunch of fluff to make people more comfortable in the drafting of Cam Newton. period.
Prediction: Cam Newton = Vince Young. Tremendous athletic ability and college talent that will just never find his stride in the NFL. Take it to the bank.
No, Peyton is not a running threat. Neither, to a large extent, is Gabbert.
That doesn't mean they aren't in the shotgun a lot with 4 receiver threats.
So my original point stands.
