There is no question Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is one the best, if not the greatest, signal caller in the NFL. Not to mention, he is a lock for the NFL MVP Award at this point in the season. So when Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked how good Manning is, the obvious response was to associate it with food.
“I would tell you he’s talented. There’s talent there. You and I could do this at a buffet, but he does it on the football field,” Reid said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “There’s some athletic ability that takes place there. He’s got that figured out.”
Reid’s analogy was met with laughs from members of the Kansas City media in attendance.
As funny as it is, the scary part for opponents in the AFC is that it is true. Manning plays the quarterback position at a level none of us will ever be able to comprehend. He understands the inner and outer workings of Denver’s offense. He knows where defensive players will end up before they even know what they are going to do. He has the unique combination of a head coach’s mind with an elite quarterback’s arm.
There really is no tougher challenge in the NFL, at least this season, then trying to stop Manning. For that reason, every football fan in the world should tune in to Sunday night’s contest between the Chiefs and Broncos because it simply will not get any better than that matchup.
