Found August 10, 2012 on USA Sports 360:

People are a buzz today after seeing the legendary Peyton Manning re-appear in the N.F.L.. Manning only played one series and threw the ball seven times moving his Broncos from their own 38 yard line 50 yards down to the Bears 12. Manning looked like he was going to get his team into the end-zone until Broncos receiver Brandon Stokley deflected the pass  and it was intercepted by the Bears Major Wright. It was a good start for the veteran quarterback who hasn’t played since 2010, the Broncos must have seen all they needed to, this would be the only series Manning would play in the 31-3 routing of the Chicago Bears.

Who can blame the Broncos staff for taking no chances with the man they are paying a boat load of money to? Just having Manning on the side-lines brings a presence to the Denver Broncos of solid leadership. The Broncos looked good last night even without the 4 time NFL M.V.P. The Broncos defense continued where they left off in the 2011 season, they held the Bears to 3 points and look as though they will be solid in 2012.

For those who wanted to see more of Peyton Manning, you’re going to have to wait a little longer. The Broncos are taking no chances of getting the big man hurt. Manning himself would have liked to play more I’ll bet. One series that ended with a deflected pass had to leave a bad taste in Manning’s mouth. The way Manning was able to move the team with ease is an example of just how good Manning is at commanding a football team. We will all have to wait until next week to see more of Manning, hey we’ve waited almost two years what is one more week.

Tell us what kind of season you think Manning is going to have this year, leave your comments below….

Manning's receivers not up to speed yet

The 10-snap cameo appearance that Peyton Manning made in his return to the field on Thursday night demonstrated that the four-time Most Valuable Player hasn't lost his sense of timing or his feel on short and intermediate routes. But it did show that the Denver wide receivers still have some work to do in matching Manning's nonpareil precision, even after a summer of working...

Manning glad first game is out of the way

Baby steps, not giant leaps. That's how Peyton Manning is marking his comeback. So, he was glad to get his first game in 19 months out of the way and use it as a building block. Manning was uneven in Denver's exhibition opener at Chicago on Thursday night even though he didn't have to contend with Julius Peppers or Brian Urlacher and had plenty of time to throw. His...

John Elway Says Peyton Manning Needs Two More Rings to Be the Best Ever

I think John Elway is subliminally saying that Manning isn’t better than him until he gets two more rings. I see you John you aren’t fooling me. Trying to motivate the older Manning. In Elway’s opinion, if Manning were to close out his career by winning two Super Bowls as the Broncos’ quarterback — the same way Elway closed out his own Hall of Fame career — that would...

Peyton Hits The Field

I’m back Juan… Peyton Manning was back in action for the first time in a long time and he looked pretty decent as he knocked the rust off. He only showed off his arm on a 19 yard gain to Eric Decker (my favorite Broncos WR this season), but he was picked off in the redzone on a ball he threw behind Stokely. I will have to see more to give him a full endorsement, but this was...

Oakland Raiders: Biggest Home Game of the Year

The Oakland Raiders are going to face many tough tasks over the course of the 2012 season. Among those include executing new offensive and defensive schemes from rookie head coach Dennis Allen, and a tough three game stretch from weeks 10-12 where they will face three playoff teams from 2011 (at Baltimore, New Orleans and at Cincinnati). However, the biggest home game of the 2012...

Manning, Palmer lead West revival

The AFC West is a division replete with intrigue, storylines, grandiose expectations and passion. I had to include the Raiders in that tag somehow, didn't I?

New York Giants: Questionable Running Game The Giants ranked 32nd (last in the league) in run production last season.

I’ll Be Damned, It’s Sexy Friday

The preseason is in full swing, so football is kind of quasi-back-esque, as PK would say. Despite the horrendous scab officiating, it was still great to sift through a slate of six games last night, at least for an hour or so, until everyone on the field were unrecognizable future victims of the turk. RGIII looked competent, prompting the inevitable hysteria on the part of Redskins...
