Posted July 31, 2012 on AP on Fox
Comments on the Denver Broncos by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): DENVER BRONCOS (10) Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 5): Peyton Manning's medical problems almost derailed Hall of Fame career. Now back on field, Manning will be pain in neck for opposing defenses. Cris Collinsworth, NBC Sports, 6): Peyton Manning proved how valuable he is by getting injured. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 7): Keeping Peyton Manning upright is Job 1. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 8): Call me a homer but two words: Peyton Manning. Chris Berman (ESPN, 10): I heard Broncos acquired Peyton Manning. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 10): Peyton Manning will bring out best in receivers, and defense gets after quarterbacks. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 11): I'll give Peyton the benefit of doubt, but I'm skeptical. Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 12): If Peyton Manning is Peyton Manning of old, Broncos will be formidable opponent for anyone. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 13): Manning and Broncos finish 9-7. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 13): Manning makes the difference. Broncos won division last year without him and Peyton makes Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker big factors. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 15): Most-watched comeback in recent memory is upon us. If Peyton Manning is anywhere close to old self, Denver will be one interesting - and successful - team. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 15): Peyton Manning changing horses this fall. After having been shoved off his colt, he climbed aboard a bronco; he's also giving up indoors for great outdoors. --- Online: http://bigstory.ap.org/NFL-Pro32 and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
