Seemed like when Fox was here he didn't have much success vs. mobile QBs. I have no numbers to back that up though, so I can most certainly be wrong

Fox didn't have Peyton Manning playing for him then. Fox did ok against atlanta when we had a decent offense (03-05).

This is going to be an interesting game. We have a youg team and I know they respect Manning, even Cam said he' like a God of football, or something to that effect. We should respect him but we should sack him more. Our secondary will be tested. I hope we watched tape of Atlanta's defensive coverage against them.

Everyone says this, but everyone forgets that Peyton shredded their defense after getting pictures in the 2nd Q. He figured that style of D out quickly. When the Raiders and Chargers tried to mimic it, he dropped 3 TDs on them.

In order to beat Peyton you must confuse him, which means throw him a defense he hasn't seen. He has already seen what ATL did, and it will not negatively affect him again.

You got to throw different looks his way the entire game AND not show your hand pre-snap.

I don't know what everyone is saying but I said this because Atl was effective. That doesn't stop him from being Peyton. Atl confused him, watching tape on what they did doesn't suggest to mimic their exact play as much as it suggests to confuse him by throwing different looks at him and maintaining discipline.

It's time for the offense to step up and play to its potential. We cannot plan on our defense being able to shut down Peyton and that offense. We will need to put up points to win.
