Peyton Manning – Importance of Quarterbacks [NoeBrainer]
The fact that the Indianapolis Colts are currently an 0-5 football team without Peyton Manning proves the importance of elite quarterbacks, not just the importance of Peyton Manning.
The Indianapolis Colts are a trainwreck without Peyton Manning. They currently have the worst record in the NFL. The Colts are 0-5 while the Dolphins and Rams are both 0-4.
The loss of Peyton Manning shows the importance of elite quarterbacks. An elite quarterback makes the biggest impact on a football team. There are teams that can survive losing an elite non-quarterback to the point where they won't be winless five games into a season solely based on that loss. However, losing an elite quarterback puts a franchise in a likely position to struggle immensely. Ask the Colts if they agree or not.
