Found September 03, 2012 on BroncoTalk:

On Sunday, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning—barring an unforeseen breakdown—will throw his 400th career touchdown pass in his 209th game.  Today, BroncoTalk published our 5,000th post during our sixth year of existence.

BT has come a long way since Kyle “Monty” Montgomery started the blog back in 2006.  At the time, Jake Plummer was Denver’s starting quarterback.

Since then, we’ve gone through Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow while hosting nearly seven million new and returning readers.  Tebow’s arrival on Draft Day 2010 broke our record for most hits in a single day.  Two years later, Manning’s Free Agency Tour doubled that record.

The site has rapidly grown over the years, due in part to our evolving comment system and the site becoming mobile-friendly.  We do our best to always keep improving the site and a redesign is actually under construction!

We joined the social movement several years ago but our social networking presence has strengthened considerably in recent months.  You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This is post No. 5,004;  Tim Lynch‘s defensive end preview was the big No. 5,000.  Congrats, Tim, here’s betting you didn’t even realize you posted No. 5K.

We want to thank YOU, our readers for helping us get here!  If not for you, we wouldn’t be here.  Thanks for coming along for the ride.  Here’s to 5,000 more posts and beyondGo Broncos!

The 3-4 Defense Has Been Historically Good Against Manning

It’s impossible to measure a guy’s success based on one game or even a handful of games over a career in the National Football League, but it’s hard not to notice the success, or lack thereof, by Denver Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning against the 3-4 defense.

Broncos aren't all about passing even with Manning

The Denver Broncos aren't all about passing with Peyton Manning. They've built a pretty good backfield, too. The Broncos don't want Manning to air it out 42 times a game like he did in his last season in 2010. He missed all of last year with a weakened throwing arm, has gone through four neck surgeries, his wrenching exit from Indianapolis and the free agency frenzy...

NFL 2012 Predictions

At the risk of making myself look like an idiot, I am going to offer up some predictions for teams I think will be in the playoffs at the end of the 2012 season even before the season begins. I hate pre-season predictions but figured what's the fun in life if you can't make a fool of yourself a few times, so here goes. From the NFC East: The NY football Giants. I am...

Will Philip Rivers Follow Peyton Manning as a Playoff Underachiever?

To say a player underachieved one must first have a clear understanding of what is the prescribed level of achievement. In the NFL this level is Super Bowl wins. The bar has not changed and regardless of the player or his fanatic following it will never change, the goal has always been to win Super Bowls. Using this measure Peyton Manning has underachieved magnificently and Philip...

New Look Indianapolis Colts Get First Regular Season Test in Chicago

These aren’t your father’s Indianapolis Colts. They might not even be your older brother’s.
