PLAYERS: Peyton Manning
Peyton Manning is having a ridiculous year. Not that that is anything new to hear. If Manning continues on his pace, not only will he be the third player to ever win the MVP unanimously, but he will also shatter records and quite possibly be labeled as the best season a player has ever had.Some people may refute the latter of those predictions claiming the NFL is now a pass happy league in which defenses can no longer keep up. That may be true, but the point is moot.None of this, however, matters to Manning. He could break every record in the book. But if he does not win the Super Bowl, the season will be a disappointment.So far in this young season, the Broncos are Super Bowl favorites by a long shot. They have steamrolled every opponent they have faced, except for last week. Last week, the Cowboys nearly pulled an upset and beat the Broncos. Although the Cowboys ultimately lost 51-48 in the fourth highest scoring game of all time, they may have gave some teams hope that they can b...

  • Bring all of those teams we would beat everyone why are you so high on Seattle, and San Francisco, and Green Bay for that matter the team that I think could beat the Broncs is New Orleans Kansas City has not played a team that was full strength I respect your opinions but come on lets get serious

  • The only team in the NFL that could beat the Denver Broncos, is the Broncos or Coach Fox. When Denver had the ball 1st and goal at the 1yd. line Fox was calling a play to score. That's when P. Manning ran to the sideline told him and reversed everything, just think about it, Romo had thrown for over 500yds. are you going to turn the ball back over to him. If any team in the NFL could beat the Broncos they would have to lead the NFL in pass defense and QB sacks & be able to control the line of scrimmage and run the ball consistently and eat the clock. Keeping Manning off the field. If their is a NFL team out there they would be the only ones to have a chance to beat Denver, period.

Who Is Taysom Hill Really?

To say that Taysom Hill has been playing ugly, would be accurate. To say that he has the keys to improve, that is truth. You can’t teach a player speed, but you can teach a player accuracy. That is what is holding Taysom Hill down, is his accuracy. Lets be honest, the comparisons to Steve Young is a bit overreacting. Physically, Taysom beats Steve Young and he also has the better...
