04:38 PM ET 06.28 | When it comes to moving from catching passes from Tom Brady to catching passes from Manning, Welker said he doesn't want to make any comparisons, but Manning said the team hasn't hesitated to study what made Welker so successful with the Patriots. "I???d be lying if I told you we have not studied what worked well for Wes in New England," Manning said. "There???s certain pass patterns and certain things that he???s done so well for so long, you???d be crazy not to copy some of those and bring those to your offense." Welker said the transition has been smooth. ???It???s everything you thought," he said of working with Manning. "The balls are just so accurate and you come out of your break and the ball is just there. It???s almost like a long handoff sometimes. He definitely makes it easy on you.???

I'm man crushing Manning right now.

He doesn't just bring in the best available tool for his manner of play, he reworks the playbook so that person is in a more familiar place.

I think he has a few seasons left, he was the first receiver in NFL history with at least three 110-reception seasons, but I'm betting the day Peyton retires so will he.

Kinda hard not when you consider that division and drawing the NFC Least for most of the rst of their schedule.Come playoff time they will spit the bit. Any team led by John Fox and Goober is destined for an early playoff ouster.

But the Cowboys have the most complete team Romo's been on.
