Sunday, October 12, 2012 - A battle of epic proportions awaits us.   Peyton Manning and Tom Brady will face each other for the 13th time and not only the game itself but the Fantasy Football scoring could be huge!Manning and Brady are quite possibly the top 2 quarterbacks we may ever see in this generation.    Tom Brady is the most poised QB I have ever seen. Calm, cool and collected, making every big play appear effortless.  Peyton Manning, the Professor of this game and in my opinion, the best play caller to ever stand at the line of scrimmage, directing traffic and anticipating things only Peyton Manning can anticipate. Brady leads Manning 8-4 in their prior meetings and Manning is facing him for the first time as a Denver Bronco. Anyone who is a football fan knows how great this game will be, but I really feel, the Fantasy Football factor will be huge!  So far this season, both QB's are relatively equal in their ratings;   Manning's QB rating is 96.9 and Brady's is a...

Vote: Where Does Peyton Manning Rank Among the NFL's Top Quarterbacks?

When Peyton Manning returned from multiple neck surgeries this season, we didn't know what to expect from the All Pro signal caller. It's been a mixed bag so far in 2012.

Manning has also struggled...

Vince Wilfork Believes Peyton Manning is in League With Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers as Most Competitive Quarterbacks (Video)

Peyton Manning has been known as a hard worker his entire NFL career, and Vince Wilfork understands how much work the four-time MVP puts in. Just like his own quarterback, Tom Brady.

Denver Broncos: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 9 (+0) Record 2-2 See, Peyton Manning wasn’t done. He just needed to face the Raiders. After 3 less than stellar performances in his first 3 games against tough defenses (Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Houston), Manning exploded for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns on 30 of 38 passing against the Raiders’ lowly defense. He’s not the player he once was, but he’s still pretty good...

Tom Brady tells Buffalo and the haters to screw off

(via Deadspin) This was after Brady’s run into the end-zone to tie the game so we have to wonder who he was saying ” ‘eff off” to. Was it the Buffalo fans who were saying mean things about his wife and mommy? Was it the CBS and NFL crews who were questioning the Patriots and their young team? Was it Josh McDaniels who Brady got into a minor war of words with during the second...

Here are some players you will definitely start, and some others you will definitely want to sit, for Week 5 of the fantasy football season. Suddenly, BenJarvus Green-Ellis has fumblitis...

Game Balls: Broncos 37, Raiders 6

Broncos 37, Raiders 6 — you know what a victory means, fellas. Give out your BT Game Balls! Eric Decker: I have been hard on Eric Decker basically since he has been a rookie. Whether it was that he was a better punt/kick returner than receiver or that he was only good to catch every third pass that came his way. When I say pictures of him last off-season hanging out with Kyle...

After Week 4, New England Patriots: “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.”

The New England Patriots are now 2-2 with a 52-28 blowout victory over the Buffalo Bills.
