Let's take a closer look at what both QBs need to do in order to get to CBS Lead NFL Anchor Jim Nantz on the podium with team colored confetti coming down:
Look for a lot of quick intermediate routes to aleve pressure packages by the Panthers. Look for Carolina including Norman Island to play a lot of Press (Bump/Run" Coverage daring the Broncos WRs to get off the jam and make plays!
Overall Manning Mile High if this is it will go out throwing the "Pig" all over the place. Lastly I have yet to see Manning throw the deep "Pig" and if he cannot with any "Pop" that is to the Panthers Advantage with their Safeties playing nowhere near that deep 1/3 and one near the Box!
Cam must trust his reads and unlike Manning has elite arm strength but he needs to "Stay Calm" and deliver. If the Broncos were to get Cam and better be early as they somehow and someway need to make #1 in Teal and Black uncomfortable. How you do that they need to stir up the perfect Storm with the Weather Channels' Jim Cantore.
As for Cam's Wide Outs it is led by perennial Pro-Bowler Greg Olsen from the "U" Coral Gables. Vet WRs Ted Ginn Jr. and Jerricho Cotchery have made "Plays" in the Passing game when they needed to be made. Throw in Olsen in and around the Red Zone and between the Hashes and "Philly" Brown doing his thing with "YAC" vrooooooooooom...lookout Broncos Secondary. These are solid pros mixed with a "Philly" or two as there is just no clear #2 as Olsen is their go-to dude in the crunch!
Overall Cam will play well as he has been waiting for this stage since he was the #1 overall pick a few years back. Denver must keep him in the pocket and no go up the field giving him those run lanes. One of these QBs will solve the equation as will one of these defenses!
