    So I found this interesting. Eli was on Letterman last night and had this to say about Peyton:



    Looks like Eli is helping spread the word that he is healthy enough to play.

    Apparently everyone reads the "okay to play" and completely ignore the "getting to 100 percent where HE CAN MAKE ALL THE THROWS" In other words, he can't throw the ball very well right now and no one knows when it will happen or even if it will happen.

    He had to be cleared by the doctors before he could start throwing. He has 5 weeks before FA to show some progress. If he can show he is getting some arm strength back, he will be signed. Nerve damage is hard to come back from, but I wouldn't bet against a determined Peyton Manning!!!

    You realize pitchers lose arm strength if they dont throw twice a week, right. A qb is no different. He hasnt throw at all this season. Give him 1 month. If he is healthy, he will have his arm in shape.

    It doesn't matter how determined Peyton is. Hard work isn't going to make the nerve regenerate any faster. If that nerve doesn't regenerate and attach at the right spots in the muscle, then Peyton will continue to have the triceps weakness that is currently knocking his arm strength down about 40% based on the reports I've heard. Determination isn't going to make this heal faster. This isn't like trying to strengthen muscles that were weakned due to immobility. It is a nerve problem.
