Nothing TOO crazy. I don't mind eating a flag or two. Just NEVER on 3rd down. If we hold them, I don't want us to keep them on the field with a stupid penalty like that. But, if we can't get the 3 and out, then on the next pass attempt, i see no reason why we don't stick after him and see if we can't get a hit. We gotta rattle him. That's hard enough to do as is, but if we can instill a LITTLE fear and distrust between him and his OL, then that plays into our favor.

the blue print for beating manning has always been to get in his head, rush him, make him uncomfortable.

you try and play him without doing those things and he will dismantle you.

Where did I say that we shouldn't get after him and get in his head? Anybody that wants to talk intelligently about the game of football, pm me. Most of the people on this site are completely clueless, and can't read!

Peyton Manning gets the ball out quick. So any late hit is going to be quite blatant unless we're getting pressure that fast. So no, I'd rather not try and make a "statement" if it leads to a flag. We're still not a great team thus have to avoid any and all self-inflicted mistakes.

And, after that hit Peyton took against the Saints the other week, I think he'll be just fine body wise even if we try and lay in a couple of more shots.

I think if you asked Jonathan Vilma, he'd be okay with it.

Yeah, let's rough him up so they do they same to Cam (Vick style). Seems brilliant.

They will try anyway. But Cam ain't Vick so it won't be "Vick style".

If it's there take the shot as any defense would. Don't do it where we get flagged. We can't be shooting ourselves in the foot on purpose. We do enough without meaning to lol. I'll bet there will be less blitzing actually. That's not the way to attack Manning, he'll eat us alive. Hoping Kuechly digests Manning tape like it's cotton candy and turns into a Dan Morgan-like LB for the game. Dan was the man when playing Peyton.

Hit him like you could any QB. Do not intentionally hit anyone knowing you will get flagged for it. Going for an illegal hit is stupid. Knocking a qb out is part if the game.

Peyton is really hard to hit. Has been sacked less per pass attempt than any active player or QB in NFL history!

Isn't that essentially the rationale the Saints used?

You're going to draw penalties playing aggressively anyway. I'm only annoyed when it's intentional.

Naturally, I know it happens everywhere though.

no he's on my fantasy team.

Is it worth a few flags to get in an extra knockdown or three against Manning just to remind his body how it feels? I'm not saying blatantly helmet to helmet or hurt him, but just a few legit knock downs....maybe a bit late.

Is that cheating?
