San Francisco 49ers
DENVER -- David Akers kicked four of his five field goals in the second half and the San Francisco 49ers withstood Peyton Manning's first two touchdown passes since joining the Denver Broncos for a 29-24 exhibition victory on Sunday. Alex Smith played most of the first half for the 49ers and had a touchdown pass to his fleet tight end Vernon Davis in a solid effort. Smith was 5-of-7 for 68 yards and had a fumble on a bad snap exchange. Manning, who joined the Broncos as a free agent after 14 illustrious seasons with Indianapolis, completed 10 of 12 passes for 122 yards in his most effective outing since coming back from a neck injury that sidelined him during his final season with the Colts. Trailing by 14, the 49ers' reserves put together a run of 16 straight points, including Akers' fourth field goal, a 32-yarder with 9:22 left to play, that put the 49ers in front by two points, their first lead of the day. Akers had one more field goal, a 44-yarder, with 3:...

Is Peyton Manning worth the risk?
Rizzla: No. I love Peyton Manning and think he is one of the best quarterbacks of our time but he presents too much risk for his current ADP. If he can stay healthy he can be the dominant fantasy QB we have all come to love. One wrong landing from a hit and Manning’s career could be in serious peril. I will let another owner take the gamble this...
Apparently getting warmed up to pick up this season where he left off last year, David Akers kicked four of his five field goals in the second half Sunday afternoon to complete a run of 19 consecutive points by the 49ers that allowed San Francisco to rally from a two-touchdown deficit to beat the Denver Broncos and improve to 2-1 in the preseason.
Peyton Manning threw for 122 yards and 2 touchdowns today as his Broncos took on the San Francisco 49ers. The big news is Manning completed 10 out of the 12 passes he threw. Manning who has been battling arm problems for the last 18 months or so looked like the Manning of old today. The Broncos just may have the quarterback thy need to take them where John Elway wants them to go...
So I figured rather than hinting that I had updated my Overall Rankings for 2012 Fantasy Football, I’d give you a brief synopsis of what has transpired. I also figured I would compete for the Guiness World Record for longest post title about an updated ranking while I was at it. Yeah, it’s not a real category but when it is I’m a freaking shoo-in to win. Basically, Doug...
In March Peyton Manning signed a five-year $96 million contract that contained $58 million guaranteed money although just the first $18 million for this season actually is fully guaranteed, Woody Paige of the Denver Post reports.
If Peyton fails a neck examination after the season, the remainder of the contract could be voided. If he passes, Manning will be ensured $40 million...
Peyton Manning vs. Eli Manning. The elite vs. the pro bowler. The one time champion vs. the two-time champion. Who fears who more? This has become our modern-day era, which came first the chicken or the egg?, age-long question. Just like everyone assumes it was the egg, everyone assumed it was Eli that feared big brother Peyton.
What if it was the chicken that cames first...
In the spirit of Madden 13 ratings and Super Bowl buzz, below is a look at the Denver Broncos celebrating a 27-23 SB XLVII victory over the New Orleans Saints in EA Sports’ 2012 version of Madden.
A few quick notes after the jump.
The team hosting the Super Bowl hasn’t made the playoffs the year their city hosted the game since 2000, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 10...
There's been a lot of talk this offseason about the rookie quarterbacks of this Draft.Andrew Luck looks like Peyton Manning already, and RGIII is bringing excitement back to the nation's capitol.We've even heard buzz around Brandon Weeden in Cleveland, mainly because he is older than Aaron Rodgers and hasn't played a meaningful down in the NFL yet. But on the West...
It’s been an argument ever sinePeyton Manning was moved to Denver: which receiver will become his favorite?
During the all important 3rd preseason game, it was clearly Eric Decker, as he hauled in two early scores against the elite San Francisco defense. The preseason statistics are nice, but they are only reinforcing what we thought when Manning signed in Denver. Demaryius Thomas...
Only two games on the card Sunday night but they both involved interesting storylines.Peyton Manning looked sharp in his 3rd preseason game with the Broncos.Also just as interesting, but perhaps for different reasons, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow continued to struggle in their 3rd preseason outing with the Jets. Peyton and his Horses look ready for Week 1, while Mark and Timmy have...

Sorry for going AWOL yesterday, but I’ve got a limited amount of time each morning to bust these links out and I had to take a very important phone call that ate up all of that limited time and then some. We’ll start today’s links with a piece from a few days ago that would have gone into yesterdays post. Peyton Manning will transform the Denver Broncos...

We all know by now that Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is a man who will do anything to help his football team move forward. Heck we are talking about the guy who found it in his team’s best interest to part ways with a legend in Peyton Manning to start a new regime with QB Andrew Luck.
10) Russell Wilson earned the job in Seattle, forever ending the prejudice against short QB prospects9) The New York Jets offense and ticket office would like you to believe that preseason doesn't matter at all, no sir, not any8) After watching Nick Foles take apart Cleveland, the fan bases of Miami and Arizona are on high alert for Mike Kafka7) Dallas has set strict conduct...
