Why Peyton Manning has thrown the ball 98 times in the last 2 games...

Okay...so I have been eagerly watching every video I can leading up to this game trying to see what people think the advantages for each team will be. One in particular is this bullshit about Manning attempting 98 passes in the last 2 games. Okay lets look at this for a minute...do you honestly think Peyton WANTS to throw the ball that much? Me personally I don't think so. I could be wrong, but this is all opinion here. One thing the media hasn't pointed out is that Donald Brown has been out for the last 2 games. Brown may not get a ton of carries but he is a huge part of the Colts run game. With Brown out, Addai has to run the ball, catch passes, and take the hits from blitzers. This league is not a one back league anymore and right now the Colts are basically working with one back. Sure Simpson comes in from time to time, but all he does is loose yards do we can't really count him here. The absence of Brown, in my opinion, is what has caused Peyton to have to throw so much. Addai would be wore out and beat up if we ran the ball like we needed to and have to worry about picking up blitzes and catching passes. Especially against 2 hard hitting defenses in Houston and San Fransisco. Not to mention the fact that Manning is probably calling these passes cause most of the time he sees a favorable mismatch. I don't know...what are some of your opinions on this? The media seems to be emphasizing this as a huge advantage to the Pats.
