One of the trademarks of this here average at best blog is that I tend to wait a few days and then attack a story that has already been beaten to a bloody pulp. That kind of quality “journalism” is never going to stop which is why I would like to spend today talking about Peyton Manning being traded to Denver. Just kidding, of course, let’s go back to that story about the Naptown area guy who pulled a Hank Gathers on the field of a semi-pro game that no one attended. So what we know here is that 32 year old Dave Coleman, father of 5, and (former) Nap resident was playing in a very, very ****** semi-pro football league for a team out of Portland, IN (borderline Amish country and nearly a 2 hour drive from his house so you KNOW that he took this seriously). During a recent game in the Toledo area, he went for a tackle or something, did not keep his head on a swivel, and got Hines’d the **** Warded. He tried to get up. He couldn’t. He never got up again. That seems like pretty much th...

Peyton Manning: A history of success with wide receivers

It’s every NFL coach’s dream to get a quarterback that helps turn good wide receivers into great wide receivers, as that one key player can be the difference between a coach spending a long tenure on the sidelines or watching the games...

Denver Broncos helmet, uniform concept design

Charles Sollers, a photographer from Missouri for has created a new concept design for the Denver Broncos helmets and uniforms. Also featured are the new Nike Pro Combat uniform designs by Brandon Moore. Could you imagine Peyton Manning or Von Miller wearing this?

Broncos’ Brock Osweiler victim of unfair stereotype

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...

Brandon Flowers: “We’re not too worried about Peyton Manning”

Getty Images With the addition of quarterback Peyton Manning to the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers has made it clear that they’re not worried about facing off against Manning twice a year in the AFC West. “We’ve got the mindset we’re going to win the AFC West,” Flowers said. “Peyton Manning, he’s a quarterback that everyone wants to have...

Elway couldn't pass on Manning's heir apparent

John Elway says he had to ''sacrifice the short term for the long term'' when he used a second-round pick on Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler rather than drafting a player who could help Peyton Manning right away. The boss of the Denver Broncos was joined by coach John Fox in an hour-long conference call with 6,000 season ticket holders Tuesday. A caller...

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. No one has endured the comparisons more...

AFC West Fantasy Rankings

In as little as two months, sports geeks around the country will begin to assemble for the annual ritual that has become the sports equivalent of Dungeons and Dragons: The Fantasy Football Draft. Some people like to stick with what they know, drafting a bunch of guys from their team or division. Others, like me, [...]

Confidence In The Seattle Seahawks

Recent history has shown successful NFL teams have two things in common: a quarterback that refuses to turn the ball over and a defense that forces turnovers.  The past Super Bowl champion quarterbacks have featured Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, all future Hall of Famers.  The Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans and New York...
