I'd take Manning. Running on PIT might still be tough, but don't think it's too much to ask to expect Peyton to throw 3 TDs.
I understand where your coming from, but peyton is 2-2 against the steelers. Completes less than 60% of his passes, about 250 ish yards a game. 7 TD's and 4 picks. Pittsburgh last year averaged less than 170 yards per game thru the air. I would shy away even if he wasn't coming back from surgery. His first game back facing the steelers? I'd take my chances with cutler.
