AP Pro32 comments about Broncos

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 11, 2012
Comments on the Denver Broncos by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- DENVER BRONCOS (6) Chris Berman (ESPN, 7) - Peyton Manning told us he was ready. He wasn't kidding. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 7) - Peyton Manning played like he had never been away. He makes all of their weapons better. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 5) - Manning and a much improved run defense. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 7) - Was Peyton Manning's play really a surprise? Bob Glauber (Newsday, 6) - Peyton Manning is back, and all is right with the NFL once more. Nothing like seeing Manning running an offense, even if it's in a different uniform. Tremendous way to start the season with a win over Pittsburgh in a rematch of last year's wild card playoff tilt. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 8) - The Broncos have more than Peyton Manning. After one week, they lead the NFL in sacks. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 7) - Peyton Manning looks like Peyton Manning again, which means Denver's the team to beat in the AFC West. But keep this in mind: Five of its next seven opponents are 2011 playoff teams. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 7) - That move to sign CB Tracy Porter as a free agent looks like an inspired decision heading into the Georgia Dome for a Monday night matchup. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 5) - The Broncos no-huddle offense looks as dangerous as the Patriot version. Manning looked like a guy that threw for 5,000 yards last year rather than dealing with neck surgeries. The defense sacked Roethlisberger five times from five different players. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 7) - Call me a homer but two words, Peyton "Freaking" Manning. OK, three words. The Broncos looked really good against a really good team in the Steelers. Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 5) - Peyton Manning wasn't the only key offseason pickup. Ex-New Orleans cornerback Terry Porter showed his worth with an interception return for a touchdown that clinched a 31-19 win over Pittsburgh. Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 8) - Any more questions about Peyton Manning now? --- Online: http://bigstory.ap.org/NFL-Pro32 and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
