According to FOXNews.com, students in Colorado are being told they can’t wear their number 18 Peyton Manning jersey’s to school because of an anti-gang policy.
“Some students in Greeley, Colo., are upset over an anti-gang policy that prohibits them from wearing Peyton Manning’s No. 18 jersey,” wrote FOX News.
“They told me I couldn’t wear 18 anymore because it’s a gang number and I had to take it of
“A spokesperson for Weld County District 6 explained the policy has been around for more than three years and applies to the numbers 13, 14,18, 31, 41 and 81,” wrote FOX News.
“We’re Broncos fans ourselves; it has nothing to do with that. We’re just wanting to set a consistent solid, example,” said district spokesperson Roger Fiedler.

We still like Thomas as a...

The last time Peyton Manning was quarterbacking an NFL team, True Grit was topping the American box office.
(Granted, it was the 2010 remake, not the 1969 original, but you get the idea.)
Denver, CO. When the Denver Broncos signed “you know who” back in March to lead this franchise to the promised land, it immediately vaulted them into being one of the elite contenders in the AFC.

The Pittsburgh Steelers say they have too many other things to think about heading into Sunday night's season opener in Denver to focus on revenge.
The Broncos knocked the then-defending AFC champions out of the playoffs last January with a stunning 29-23 overtime upset in the Wild Card round. Tim Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas for an 80-yard score on the first play of the extra...
These aren’t your father’s Indianapolis Colts. They might not even be your older brother’s.

Irsay had termed the makeover “Building the Monster.” Whether or not the Colts...
