Who says that a tall quarterback can’t be successful in the NFL? It seems to go against logic that having height like the Denver Broncos’ Brock Osweiler would be a detriment to his success as a quarterback.
Osweiler is 6’7” which makes it much easier for him to see over the defense compared to the average quarterback who normally stands about 6’2”. On top of that, he has longer arms and a higher delivery which makes it harder for defensive linemen to bat down his passes. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE »

Manning Hype Setting up Denver Broncos for a Letdown

I have a question for you: How many games would you predict the Denver Broncos to win this year if Matt Ryan was their quarterback?  You could argue that Ryan played on a more talented team last season than the Denver Broncos, yet went one and done in the postseason tourney.

The New Fast And Furious Offseason

The hits just keep on coming this NFL offseason. Free agency started off with a bang, with the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Saints and bounty scandal, and the draft. The Seattle Seahawks have already signed nine of their ten draft picks, including first round pick Bruce Irvin, more on him later. What a difference a year makes huh?

Luck should look to Eli

NFL Soup makes a great point: no one knows more about emerging from Peyton's shadow that little brother and two-time champ Eli Manning. First love and history aside, Andrew Luck’s best bet to successfully follow the Peyton-era is to take a few pointers from Eli Manning. No one knows the cool shadow that Peyton casts better than Eli.
