Found December 13, 2012 on Zone Blitz:
The sense heading into the 2012 season was that if Peyton Manning could come back to anything resembling his earlier years, the Denver Broncos would be in position to have a pretty good season. Manning has answered any doubters he may have had to the tune of 3,800 yards and 30 touchdowns heading into week 15. And the Broncos have won eight in a row, running away with a division that in recent years often has been won by whatever team can reach eight or nine wins for the season. Kim Constantinesco, senior editor of Predominantly Orange, thinks the best is yet to come. “When all three phases are playing well, this is undoubtedly the best team in the NFL,” she says. “If everyone stays healthy and takes care of business, the Broncos team is Super Bowl bound.” I’m not sure the separation is that great yet. New England is playing well and, when on its game, Houston can play with anyone. But the Broncos are right in the mix to be playing for the town’s first title since John Elway retired....

Peyton Manning is not a top 2 MVP candidate

So, all year, or at least since everyone realized Matt Ryan was a fraud, Peyton has inexplicably been leading the MVP race. This has made NO sense to me whatsoever. I could not understand how Peyton could possibly be ahead of TB12 in the race. Like did people forget about turnovers all of a sudden? It just made no sense to me. Like yeah, I get it media, Peyton is such a nice guy...

Will the Ravens be able to solve the riddle that is Manning?

The Ravens have beaten Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning before. Unfortunately, the last time was 2001. Baltimore is very banged up and the Broncos are on a roll. So what’s the expectation? The expectation, in my mind, at least, is the Ravens don’t have a chance. Baltimore hasn’t lost consecutive home games since 2007, when Brian Billick was still coaching the team...

Brady is the MVP. And arguably, the best ever. My question and my wonder is how is there so much fascination on Peyton Manning as MVP this year? I respect and understand what Manning has done but even this year alone, TB12 is the clear cut MVP. Why

I don’t watch ESPN so I don’t know what they’re saying but I have a couple points...

Broncos bring Manning to Baltimore this time

(Eds: Adds background, quotes. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The last time the Denver Broncos won a game in Baltimore, a baby-faced John Elway was making his second NFL start and producing his first career fourth-quarter comeback. That was way back in 1983, before the Colts left for Indianapolis. The Broncos are 0-5 in Baltimore since the Ravens entered...

Peterson: MVP is best player, not best QB

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson's numbers speak for themselves: 1,600 rushing yards, 1,811 total yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns. The first two numbers lead the NFL, and he's tied for third in touchdowns. Peterson knows, in the eyes of some, not even those numbers are enough to sway MVP voters his way. He knows the usual considerations will come for the league...

What Happened To The AFC?
