Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton is known for speaking his mind. Not to the point of Joe Namath, but the former great for the Minnesota Vikings has no problem telling you what he thinks of current NFL quarterbacks.
In the past, Tarkenton has been more than willing to knock Brett Favre. I miss those rants.
But now, Tarkenton has taken to calling out Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. he said the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots “are getting old.”
Wait, what? Aren’t we all getting old? It beats the alternative, does it not?
I understand that Tarkenton means that Manning and Brady are getting too old, not just old, to play in the NFL at the elite level that they are used to playing. While I understand what he is saying, I still disagree with his notion.
“I saw Peyton do things Monday night against the Falcons that I’ve never seen him do,” Tarkenton stated about the 36-year-old Broncos play caller.
“Brady hasn’t looked like Brady in two years,” he said of the 35-year-old New Pa...

There are two ways of looking at this.
Maybe VY just having a bad day and wanted to retweet someone who was making a terrible comparison, but was supporting him or VY really believes this.
If it is the former I get it, if it is the latter then you have your answer as to why he isn’t playing currently in the NFL.
I know all my haters are happy that I’m not playing football...
Peyton Manning came out and threw three interceptions in the first quarter. It was his return to Monday Night Football, a bit over hyped for the game he probably came out pressing which led to the interceptions. The Broncos were able to put together a late rally on the legs of Willis McGahee, but were unable to overcome the Falcons who jumped out to the early lead.Peyton Manning...

Week 2 is in the books and the most important player is again the kicker….good and bad!
The Patriots and Tom Brady had a rough game but in the end New England was set up for victory. Down 2 and a 42 yd kick staring down reliable (career 84%) Stephen Gostkowski, the Patriots had surely done everything they needed too, at least we thought! The ball didn’t just miss left...

Manning struggled miserably against...

Last week: 3 (+0)
In 2010, the Patriots lost to the Browns. In 2011, the Patriots lost to the Bills. They won 14 games in 2010 and 13 games in 2011. It wasn’t the end of the world then and it’s not the end of the world now. It’s football. Sometimes **** just happens for no reason.
