Good to see Peyton back in action, but ...

The last time Peyton Manning had thrown a football in an NFL game of any sort was Jan. 8, 2011, in a playoff loss to the New York Jets. That's a really long time ago, and in that span, the four-time NFL MVP and future Hall of Famer underwent numerous procedures on his neck, leaving his future in doubt. With the Indianapolis Colts clearly in his rearview mirror and the future of the Tim Tebow-less Denver Broncos now squarely in his hands, Manning did indeed throw a football Thursday night against the Chicago Bears.

In fact, Manning threw the ball multiple times, eight times in all, although one completion was wiped away because of a holding penalty. Well, he looked fine to me, but did we really learn anything?
