A league source tells us that the Senior Bowl has been buzzing about the manner in which Colts quarterback Peyton Manning dismantled the Jets and “the guy who is supposed to have the best defensive mind in the league.”
The talk among offensive coaches at the college all-star game was that the Jets had no Plan B after Manning figured out the plan featuring coverages he supposedly had never before seen.
So there’s a theory in Mobile that the Saints should consider developing two separate game plans: One for the first half, and one of the second half. The concern, however, is that Saints players would interpret the unconventional approach as panic.
Still, given the way Manning is playing, panic might be the appropriate response.
