Peyton didn't develop this skill on his own he got help. Bet if Peyton had a young qb like luck and taught him everything he knew it would work.


The problem is Peyton would never work with a young QB/Teammates--like Luck--to teach him as long as he was the starter.

Manning was notoriously selfish about taking all /the lions share of snaps during the week, and was known not to work with or teach back ups. That's just how he was. It was all about him. And he makes no apologies for it.

Would this preclude him being a good teacher as a coach? I don't know. Probably so. Because people who like to teach usually have that bug in them. And Peyton hasn't demonstrated the sharing/empathy quotient through out his career.

Manning doesn't have magical knowledge that he can just pass on and a young QB can just emulate it. That isn't how it works.

Have you seen him on the sidelines? Almost every time I watch him there he's got everyone huddled around him showing them what to look at and look for from the defense and how to best attack. On Denver especially he's got some young receivers that's he's molding into his weapons. I never really saw him as selfish. I just think if he did make his run at a qb coach oc or HC he'd be good is all I'm saying. Probably wont happen though cause after he's done playing he'll have enough money to keep his wife home and fug her all day and not care lol

So reading the defense and knowing the best available play to call is strictly a born with trait? Not true. Showing a young qb what to look for in the defenses what to exploit where to exploit it can all be taught. It isn't some magical power you only get by being beaten by a radioactive spider or something

That's cause he's trying to win within the context of a game. That's not surprising.

However, that has nothing to do with his willingness to help/teach (or his UN-willingness to help and teach) any young or back up quarterback. Two different things (though I understand what you're saying).

After his career, I see him more as a GM or part of an ownership group, like someone said earlier.

If he ever coaches, god bless him.
