To say that Taysom Hill has been playing ugly, would be accurate. To say that he has the keys to improve, that is truth. You can’t teach a player speed, but you can teach a player accuracy. That is what is holding Taysom Hill down, is his accuracy. Lets be honest, the comparisons to Steve Young is a bit overreacting. Physically, Taysom beats Steve Young and he also has the better arm but Steve Young had accuracy. Young started out rough also, playing in 11 games in 1981 as a Sophomore, only had a completion percentage of 50%. Steve Young also threw just as many touchdowns as he did interceptions (5). Even his Junior year in 1982, Steve Young threw 18 touchdowns to 18 interceptions. So what changed for Steve Young? How did a guy who was throwing 50% accuracy with 5 touchdowns to 5 interceptions become a Davey O’Brien trophy winner and runner up for the Heisman Trophy? He improved on his accuracy and used his running game, which is his biggest weapon, as a decoy. Taysom Hill has the ...

The Colts will honor Peyton Manning next week in Indy

The USA Today is reporting that the Indianapolis Colts will pay tribute to Peyton Manning when he returns to Indianapolis next week. They have not stated what they were going to do, but it will be pre-game. Peyton has been amazing so far with the Broncos, but was a legend in Indy. The Colts are […]

Denver Broncos are averaging 46 points a game; Can they get it to 50?

Peyton Manning is playing like a man possesed this year and tomorrow it should only get better. Peyton has 20 passing touchdowns this season already and only one interception. The team has been putting up crazy points and are averaging 46 a game. @AdamSchefter: Broncos are now averaging 46 points per game – 16 points […]

How Dare Those Jaguars Be Mean to Peyton Manning!

It wasn't Peyton Manning's fault that the spread against the Jaguars was the biggest in NFL history. Okay, maybe it was kind of his fault; he is spanking defenses at a record setting pace so far this season, but it isn't all his fault. Come Jacksonville--you're not that good. Peyton is a nice guy though, and he wants everyone to feel like they are playing-...

Peyton Manning says The Jaguars Are a Good NFL Football Team

You can never afford to take you eye off an opponent in the NFL. Yes the Jags may stink so bad  that people actually think Tim Tebow can save them, but they are still an NFL team. Peyton seems to have his focus in the right place with these comments:  We’re playing a good NFL football team,” Manning told reporters on Wednesday, via Pro Football Talk. “I don’t look at...

Broncos lurch to 35-19 win over Jaguars

Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for three to lead the Denver Broncos to a tougher-than-expected 35-19 victory Sunday over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars. The Broncos (6-0) came in as 27-point favorites, and much of the pregame hype centered on whether they'd cover the spread and when Manning would come out of the game. Neither happened. Manning...

Xs and Os: The Denver Pick Plays

For this week's Xs and Os breakdown, I realize I am risking the possibility of too much Peyton Manning this week. But, then, I countered that possibility with the idea that he is the industry leader in a very competitive business and that we may never see him again during his career vs Dallas (which I am sure they are thankful for), so I decided to cover one more impressive thing...

Broncos Pretend Jaguars Are A Good Team

Headline writers for 9 News in Denver didn’t even try to hide their feelings about the Jaguars. At a historic 28-point underdogs, the Jaguars are likely to be drubbed by more than twice that amount by the end of the 4th quarter on Sunday. Even Peyton Manning’s face looks like he’s trying oh so hard to say nice things about the Jags. ”Oh yeah, they have some… nice young...

Broncos beat pesky Jags, move to 6-0

Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for three to lead the Denver Broncos to a tougher-than-expected 35-19 victory Sunday over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars.

Justin Blackmon electric, but Jaguars fall to Broncos

DENVER (AP) -- For an uncomfortably long time Sunday, it was a matter of "if" for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, not "how many." Their supposedly lopsided matchup against the winless Jacksonville Jaguars turned into quite a tussle for much of a surreal afternoon. Not until Knowshon Moreno ran for his third touchdown did the Broncos have any sense of security...

Pick 6: From Broadway Joe to Buster, major upsets

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Pro Football Writer Much is being made of how lopsided everyone expects Sunday's game to be between Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars. One team, after all, is 5-0 and scored 51 points last weekend. The other is 0-5 and scored a grand total of 51 points all season. One team has Manning and his...

Maybe The Colts Are For Real After All

Coming into this National Football League (NFL) season, I was one of the people who didn't think the Indianapolis Colts could build on what they did last season. For those who might have forgotten, the Colts made the playoffs with an 11-5 record after going 2-14 in 2011. After 2011, the team decided to part ways with franchise quarterback Peyton Manning and replace him with Andrew...
