Okay, stop yelling at your monitor, because I can’t hear you. Don’t get me wrong I love Peyton as much as the next guy, but this year will be different.
He has, over the years, proven to be very consistent but the majority of the team has always been intact.
They have always had a great coaching staff, good WRs, good protection, and running game. Not this year.
They have lost the WR that took most of the double coverages and allowed Wayne and Clark to get free.
Tony Dungy has retired, and more importantly, Tom Moore has left the offensive coordinator position.
Peyton has already been seen in interviews questioning what the new coaches are doing, and stating that communication is poor.
They also lost offensive line coach Howard Mudd. Moore and Mudd have been with Peyton and the Colts since 1998.
There is no doubt that Moore and Peyton had a connection that most offensive coordinators and QBS dream about.
I can’t help but think that his confidence has slipped somewhat from all of this and he may need time to adjust to the new system and coaching staff.
Peyton is currently going third among QBs in fantasy play and I think that’s at least two or three QBs early. Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers, and Kurt Warner all had better numbers last year and I think that will continue.
Not taking Peyton as the third QB allows you to take another WR or RB before taking Rodgers or Rivers, who most likely will have better numbers than Peyton anyway.
So there you have it. My top five overrated QBS for 2009 fantasy football. I know some of you are eagerly waiting with club in hand to bash me over the head, so let the bashing begin.
