The Football Fan Spot:
Eric Decker and Peyton Manning reportedly have great chemistry in Training Camp, much better than him and Demaryius Thomas. This makes a lot of sense because Peyton Manning loves crisp route runners with reliable hands, rather than pure athletic freaks like Thomas like Tim Tebow did. With Peyton Manning likely to show diminished arm strength this season at age 36 after 4 neck surgeries and a year out of football, Decker should lead the team in receiving and Peter King’s prediction that Decker will rank among the league leaders in catches doesn’t sound too crazy. He could have 90+ catches for 1100+ yards.

Here was Peyton Manning's final stat line by the end of the Broncos' first preseason game in Chicago: 4/7 for 44 yards, 1 interception and a 36.3 passer rating.
If you read that stat line without watching the game last night, you'd think that Manning had an off game. In fact, you'd probably think he had a terrible game.
From watching the tape, Manning did look...
Eli Manning says that brother Peyton is the better quarterback. There wasn't a debate in the past, but there may be one now.
Last night, two AFC teams took to the field in their first preseason contests of 2012. Both games were fairly high profile, as the Chargers took on the Packers in a game that featured two on the NFL’s best quarterbacks, while the Broncos took on the Bears, highlighted by the return of Peyton Manning. Here [...]
For the record on August 9, 2012, Peyton Manning stepped onto Soldier Field in the uniform of a Denver Bronco. While the uniform may have been different, the number and acumen were the same. As odd as this may appear to football enthusiasts, Peyton looked like he hasn’t lost a beat. On the field for only [...]

Just as quickly as Peyton Manning took the field in his first game as the Broncos new hope, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews may have squashed that very same promise with one play on Thursday night.
After a long summer of optimism and expectations surrounding the Chargers, a team that is notorious for hiccuping early in the season, Matthews received his first meaningful...
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Broncos 31 – Bears 3
Yeah, I got this.
Broncos Oline. It was hard not to like what the Broncos did in this game. Peyton looked good. His arm strength might not be 100%, but his control of the offense was obvious and it is clear the broncos have the inside track in the AFC West. The best part of this early pre-season...
Broncos 31, Bears 3. With AP Photos. By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer Peyton Manning knows his first appearance with the Denver Broncos was a bit uneven and that he has room for improvement.
Considering the time he has missed, he'll take it.
Now, he'll try to iron out everything in time for the regular season opener Sept. 9.
''It felt good to get out there,...
I’m back Juan…
Peyton Manning was back in action for the first time in a long time and he looked pretty decent as he knocked the rust off. He only showed off his arm on a 19 yard gain to Eric Decker (my favorite Broncos WR this season), but he was picked off in the redzone on a ball he threw behind Stokely. I will have to see more to give him a full endorsement, but this was...
RGIII impresses in preseason debut.
What teams essentially look for out of a rookie quarterback making his NFL debut (preseason or otherwise), isn’t that he completes most of his passes or leads his team on a touchdown-scoring drive. Those things are nice, of course, but what is most important is that the young signal caller has command of the huddle, displays composure, and is...
When last we left assistant vice president of moisture management, Peter King, he was describing The Schiano Factor, the difference a team sees when it hires a head coach that will dress down underlings who serve him the wrong pasta noodle. PK also raved that the Raiders training camp now contains Wifi and fewer zombies. Peter also broke the news that grits are served in The South...
