Peyton Manning mark under review

The league's record-keepers were taking another look at things Monday, as is customary each week in the season. At issue, according to sources, is a 7-yard completion from Manning to Eric Decker with just over a minute remaining in the first quarter.

In one camera angle, the pass to Decker looks like a lateral, which would make it a running play. Another angle, from above, shows Decker receiving the ball at the Broncos' 48-yard line, with Manning slightly deeper than that.

If the play stands, Manning would keep the record. If it is eventually ruled a run, he would be credited with 259 yards Sunday and 5,470 this season. The 5,470 would be the second-highest season total in league history and still easily be Manning's career best.

It would be funny if they changed it but they won't and if they did it would only lead to a astrix on Drews record as Manning would have broke it if he didnt sit.

Re: Peyton Manning mark under review

How would Manning not playing in the second half put an asterisk on Brees?

Brees broke his own record!

Because anything the Saints achieve always has an asterisk next to it. Goodell makes sure of this.

If he was taken out of the game it's not an * it it what it is.... No record. Assumptions are moot.

Should we give Graham an * because we ran the ball?

Im not trying to big him up or belittle Brees record as I dont really care about individual record unless its done winning a championship. Manning plays the full 16 games and he breaks record thats all.

Or he brakes his ankle, re-injures his neck... the next play and nothing else...

Lets not assume, if something did not happen then it did not happen.

Is there an asterisk by the Saints 2012 season because Payton was suspended?
