Turns out, Peyton Manning does have a favorite wide receiver in Denver - the one who's open.
That's the thing about the Broncos quarterback: He doesn't particularly play favorites. The four-time NFL MVP is so adept at spreading the wealth around that he's not choosy about his choices.
All he demands is a little bit of open space.
Manning completed passes to six different receivers in a season-opening win against Pittsburgh, simply by taking what the Steelers defense gave him. His ability to stay patient in the pocket and quickly scan the entire field is what makes Manning, well, Manning.
And it also makes his receivers work that much harder down the field, even if they're the fifth option on a play.
''If you're open, he's going to find you,'' said Eric Decker, whose team will play in Atlanta on Monday night. ''That's why he's so good.''
Not to mention so hard to defend. He's steadily building a rapport wit...
BEST OF MAXIM
Yeesh, that didn’t take long. Barely one game into his tenure as starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos and already Peyton Manning has his own corn field maze, located just outside Greeley, Colorado. He was a god in Indianapolis and I don’t remember any farmer’s doing this for him during his time with the Colts. Could be that there aren’t many corn fields in the...
Well, Peyton Manning-mania is in full bloom in Colorado, as mysterious crop circles emerge in the image of the star Broncos QB. OK, they're not mysterious. But it would better if aliens had left them behind.
Denver Broncos News
NFP is seeing a lot of similarity to the Denver Broncos offense today and the one Peyton Manning ran when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. I’m not surprised, the Broncos would be fools not to do that. Heck, if they’d do it for Tim Tebow and the option, why wouldn’t they do it for Manning? [National Football Post]
The Atlanta Falcons coaches had some...
Peyton Manning earned all the headlines and accolades in the Denver Broncos' 31-19 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Tracy Porter scored the play of the game.It's not that Manning's play was poor.In fact, it was most likely decent enough to earn him another commercial endorsement to add to his current TV ads for Papa John's Pizza, Buick and DirecTV.He threw...
Peyton Manning's first start with the Denver Broncos arguably exceeded many people's expectations for him.
There's no shortage of expectations for Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons following their Week 1 performance.
Manning and the Broncos visit Ryan and the Falcons on Monday night, with both quarterbacks looking to lead their teams to a 2-0 start.
Denver Broncos News
The Denver Broncos face a tough test in three days when they face the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. A win here could set the tone for very solid season, though a loss likely won’t mean much as the Falcons are dominant in their own house. [DenverBroncos.com]
The Playbook guys think Peyton Manning and the Broncos are poised to go 2-0 this week, with Von...
As long as you didn't do something silly like draft Peyton Manning No. 3 overall because you like his Buick commercial or take a kicker in the 5th round because he went to your college, you still have a good shot at the title.Be active and pay attention and you have a huge advantage against most of your competitors.Last season Cowboys running back Felix Jones suffered a high...
Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0)
If it wasn’t for Green Bay/Chicago, this would be the game of the week. Actually, scratch that, Green Bay/Chicago was an incredibly ugly game that should have been the game of the week, but wasn’t because teams only had 3 days to prepare and played much worse than they normally do. I hate this new one game on Thursday every week thing...
Denver, CO. Things could not have gone more perfectly for the Denver Broncos in week 1. A lot of the question marks this team had heading into the season seemed to be answered to varying degrees, and Peyton Manning proved he is far from washed up. The young receivers looked outstanding, as Demaryius Thomas running down the field in open space once again will haunt Pittsburgh...
Affiliate – Will the Steelers rebound after losing to the Denver Broncos in Week 1? They will host the Jets this weekend and are currently the favorites to win. Right now the NFL odds board lists Pittsburgh as a six-point favorite, even though they were beaten pretty bad by the Broncos and the Jets looked dominant against the Buffalo Bills.
Still, people realize the Steelers aren’t...
Last week: 10-6
Bears @ Packers
Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) @ Buffalo Bills (0-1) 1 p.m.
Both of these teams have high expectations for their season, especially the Bills after they rebuilt their defensive line. Last week they looked bad against the Jets on offense, defense and special teams. The good news is that they have no where to...
