A few years ago, Peyton Manning showed up at USC one day to work out while in Los Angeles. He worked out with USC’s receivers on Cromwell Field and put on a display with his accuracy and arm strength.
Matt Barkley’s workout on the same field yesterday did not show the same arm strength or accuracy. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said Manning’s arm is not as strong as Joe Flacco but that Barkley needs to rely on the same things that make Manning successful.
“Peyton Manning is a great quarterback because of his timing, anticipation and accuracy,” Mayock said. “Those are the qualities Barkley can succeed with. It’s all about timing, anticipation and accuracy.”
