Collie from Manning best in the NFL

Austin Collie, in just his second year in the NFL, has proven to be an outstanding fit with quarterback and future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and the Colts.

In this years injury plagued season, Collie still has managed to be Peytons top target for the endzone, catching 8 touchdowns in just 9 games despite leaving in the middle of three games due to injury. In his 9 games, he amassed 58 catches, for 649 yards.

Just a couple of days ago, ESPN's bottom line ticker reported that the Manning to Collie hookup was the best two player punch in the NFL, with Peyton sporting the best passer rating to one single receiver in the league. Manning has completed 87 percent of his passes to Collie.

Collie has been put on injured reserve for the remainder of the season, but if he can manage to stay healthy next year then this will be quite the duo for years to come.
