Ron Jaworski: Father time might be catching up with Peyton Manning

Former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski watches a lot of game film in his capacity as an analyst for Monday Night Football and NFL Matchup, and he says he's noticed something interesting in watching the Colts this season: Peyton Manning might be getting old.

"The last couple weeks, as I've studied Peyton Manning, he has not been real sharp," Jaworski said today on Mike and Mike in the Morning. "Maybe there does come a time when the skills start to diminish a little bit."

Jaworski isn't saying Manning is washed up by any stretch of the imagination, but he is saying he's noticing throws that the 34-year-old Manning isn't making, and they're throws he used to make.

"I'm not saying it is, but I'm seeing little signs now that the deep sideline throws are not as accurate as they used to be, there's not the zip on the ball that there used to be," Jaworski said. "Maybe father time might be catching up with Peyton Manning a little bit."

Statistically, Manning looks like he's as good as ever, having completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 1,609 yards this season, with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. But Jaworski looks at more than just the statistics and wonders if Manning might be past his prime.

 

Jaws just says things to make himself relevant! What a douche'
