Manning's bad cold-weather QBs?

I'm just gonna float this one out there now. I have no evidence to back this up (not that it can't be found easily but I don't have it). I think both Mannings are poor weather QB's. Peyton doesn't play in cold weather often in the AFC South, but hes been beaten pretty bad in NE twice. Eli on the other hand, plays in the northeast. He was a very efficient passer early in the year. But as the year went on, he got less and less efficient, culminating in his playoff goose egg to the Panthers at home.

Can this be linked to cold weather?

Re: Manning's bad cold-weather QBs?

they actually do keep stats like that (w/l record below 40 degreess etc), but i don't know if its easy to find (normally its just one of those random weird stats fed to announcers during a broadcast to kill time).

some QBs can't play in rain (plummer) while others have no problems (brunell), so its definately possible. dome QBs don't deal with wind as much as non domers, and that probably costs them a bit of completion % outdoors. (Also some QBs play well when injured (mcnair) while others don't (brunell).

some people are just shrinking violets though, and choking to pressure or stress may play a bigger part. In the NYG game, burress wasn't even trying, it was like he didn't care.

In peyton's defense, his OL was TERRIBLE vs the steelers (that was indoors though).

Ironically, the meeting between the two teams last year was played in the rain.

Of course, we VASTLY outplayed them.

But yeah, I agree with all the above.

Re: Manning's bad cold-weather QBs?

I think I agree eventhough the evidence is all anecdotal. I gotta say that living in NY I am often subjected to Giants games and I have noticed something about Eli he often misses his receivers by throwing way above their heads. Not floaters per se but simply throwing the ball several feet over his receiver.

I don't know if this is a function of him having Plaxico and Shockey to throw to, inexperience, or maybe a mechanics issues.
