NFL Preseason 2012: Grading Peyton Manning's Performance for the Denver Broncos

Coming out of training camp, Peyton Manning was impressing his coaches and teammates with his arm power and his leadership skills.

On the field this preseason, Manning has had some ups and downs. Much was made of his so-so performance against the Seahawks, in which he threw two interceptions. At the same time, praise was given after Manning and the Broncos offense completely obliterated the San Francisco defense Sunday afternoon in the first quarter. 

This is why the preseason is important but, at the same time, inconsequential.

The preseason is the perfect time to work out the kinks and get everyone fired up for the regular season. Manning had time to shake off a little rust, and he gave a glimpse of what 2012 could bring in his performance against San Francisco.

But, it also doesn't count, so being overly critical or overly positive may not be that useful.
