Hope you don’t believe in the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx — this latest news is likely to give you a sore neck.
Peyton Manning, fresh off his on-field Denver Broncos debut, will make his in-newsstands Broncos debut this week when he graces the cover of Sports Illustrated, the team confirmed. It will be Manning’s 12th appearance on the cover and the Broncos’ 22nd, according to the Broncos’ Patrick Smyth.
Manning, who underwent four neck surgeries in 2011, played in his first NFL game in 611 days last Sunday night to lead the Broncos 31-19 over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
We’ll publish a picture of the cover as soon as it is made available.
If Manning can boldly face the likes of Troy Polamalu on game day, sticking his neck out on a magazine cover is cakewalk. I’m no man of superstition, but if you are, u...

Yeesh, that didn’t take long. Barely one game into his tenure as starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and already Peyton Manning has his own corn field maze, located just outside Greeley, Colorado. He was a god in Indianapolis and I don’t remember any farmer’s doing this for him during his time with the Colts. Could be that there aren’t many corn fields in the...

Just last week, I tweeted, "If there's a worse town in Colorado than Greeley, I haven't been to it." And I say that as somebody that lives in Colorado, and has for the last 15+ years now.While in most towns you might notice a landmark or something other than an official town sign to make you realize you've arrived in a town, you know you're in Greeley when...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Coming off a 19-for-26 performance for 253 passing yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in an impressive 31-19 victory over Pittsburgh, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning showed the football world last Sunday that while he might have been playing his first game in two seasons, he is no less dangerous a player.
On Monday night when he visits the Georgia...
Think Broncos fans are excited about Peyton Manning’s debut?
Check out this photo of Fritzler Farm Corn Maze in LaSalle, Colorado, whose owners decided to model their annual maze to look like Manning:
The maze opens to the public on September 15th. I would just hate to get lost in the Manning Face.

Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos to a week 1 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener of NFL Sunday Night Football. While No. 18 is wearing a new jersey in Denver, he was once again No. 1 in NFL jersey sales after week 1.
Sitting out a full season did not hurt Manning on the field, and it did not hurt his popularity at all either.
In fact, not only did Manning...
We all wondered, so did Broncos President John Elway, head coach John Fox and his dad, Archie Manning. Is it gone? Did he lose the magic? For thirteen years, Peyton Manning spoiled us. As quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, he helped create a dynasty. In those thirteen years, the Colts made the playoffs eleven times. They won their division eight times , made it to the AFC championship...
