    He played more than half the game 20 yards off the LOS, you're smoking crack bro.
    While I agree he tried to avoid a 325 lb. lineman and took a bad angle, where was the rest of the d?
    Mundy couldnt catch a 2 legged dog in a chase.

    Troy is the least of our concerns on D.

    troy is the only player on our defense peyton was concerned about. that speaks volumes about how good he is, and how average we were in every other position.

    I don't recall being this dissapointed in a team.

    This may be a very long season.

    I was more disappointed losing to Tim Tebow in the playoffs last year than I am losing to Peyton Manning in the first game of the season this year.

    losing to one of the worst QBs in the NFL was a horrible way to end the season, losing to a future Hall of Fame QB to open the season just seems a lot easier to swallow and still gives us the rest of this year to turn things around.

    I agree but LeBeau's over reliance on Troy is a concern. It was clearly shown in the broadcast that Manning was keying his audibles off of where Troy was and a good D Coord would make an adjustment to that. But as is usual there were no adjustments on Defense.

    Agreed. Opening day last year was far worse. But this one still stunk. Opening day and injuries have already decimated this team. What are we going to look like by week 16?

    Manning was keying his audibles to avoid Troy. It's what good QB's do - steer away from the best guy on defense. How does our D Coord do something to make Manning not avoid Troy?

    We've shown in the past that the best way to defend against Manning is to get pressure on him and we did not have an answer for that. He was as comfortable in the pocket as he could be. Hell, he even ran for a first down.
