ESPN: Gregg Williams Needs to Dial It Up

The second part of today's two-fer at ESPN Insider looks at how Peyton Manning has done against Gregg Williams defenses over the past few seasons. Manning generally is excellent against the blitz, but looking back, Tim Gerheim finds something very interesting: In three games against Williams defenses since we started game charting (2006 Redskins and 2008 Jaguars), Manning has struggled against Williams' blitzes and just killed his secondary when Williams' defenses only sent the standard four.

LOL, do yall not even realize that Manning was playing on one leg during the first month of last season? That game should just be thrown out.

There is a reason that the only time in the last 3 years that the Colts have struggled was during that time when Manning was playing injured.
