Not sure. Certainly better than the projections of Nuk
Posted: May 7, 2014 12:12 PM

going to Denver, but i don't think Peyton can throw the deep ball any longer. Nuk would be a terrible fit atm since the deep threat is really his strong point, and i would consider him pretty weak in other areas. Sammy is a much more complete receiver that can work the middle and pick up YAC as well as run the ~15 yard outs and timing routes that Peyton likes to throw.

Still, i think one of the major assets for Sammy is that he can work those others routes and use those to set up the home run play. I really just don't have any confidence that Peyton can get the ball down the field any longer. His arm was a little better last season than the year before, but he still struggled some with velocity, and I've yet to really see him get the ball down the field. Still obviously a great QB, but it's really his mind and not his arm that makes him great these days.
