Peyton Manning bid farewell to a record-setting offensive playbook this offseason.

That doesn't necessarily mean Manning changed the play calls, though.
He could just be using his old slogan to catch the Ravens off guard. Or, as his brother eluded in an interview last offseason, the "Omaha" call could be used to help offensive linemen with the snap count.
More likely? Manning is a renowned control freak -- and old habits die hard for 18-year veterans.
