Peyton Manning throws a pass as quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts in 2010. (REUTERS/Brent Smith) This is a sponsored post edited for BT. It’s every NFL coach’s dream to get a quarterback that helps turn good wide receivers into great wide receivers, as that one key player can be the difference between a coach spending a long tenure on the sidelines or watching the games on Direct TV each Sunday. Take New England quarterback Tom Brady, for example, who has made Wes Welker and Deon Branch, two wide receivers who had little to no hype surrounding them, successful in the NFL. Peyton Manning is another example of a quarterback who is capable of transforming his wide receivers; his history with the Indianapolis Colts speaks for itself in that regard. There’s no question that Manning has had some good players to lob balls to during his Super Bowl-winning tenure with the Colts, like Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison, but if you really want a good barometer of just how good of a player P...

Broncos’ Brock Osweiler victim of unfair stereotype

Who says that a tall quarterback can’t be successful in the NFL? It seems to go against logic that having height like the Denver Broncos’ Brock Osweiler would be a detriment to his success as a quarterback. Osweiler is 6’7” which makes it much easier for him to see over the defense compared to the average quarterback who normally stands about 6’2”. On top of that, he...

Brandon Flowers "not too worried about Peyton Manning"

Anyone who has ever played a sport knows that you must have confidence. Sometimes one can be too confident in his/her or their teams ability.

That'll all get played out on the field. Flowers...

Broncos offensive boss revamps playbook yet again

The Denver Broncos still plan on running an option offense. Only, this version centers on giving Peyton Manning the option of calling anything he wants. For the second time in six months, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has to overhaul his playbook to fit the QB under center. McCoy restructured the offense on the fly last October to better suit Tim Tebow's unique skill set...

Elway couldn't pass on Manning's heir apparent

John Elway says he had to ''sacrifice the short term for the long term'' when he used a second-round pick on Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler rather than drafting a player who could help Peyton Manning right away. The boss of the Denver Broncos was joined by coach John Fox in an hour-long conference call with 6,000 season ticket holders Tuesday. A caller...

Dallas Clark likely to sign with the Chiefs

Dallas Clark is just 2 seasons removed from a 100 catch season in 2009, but injuries and age have slowed him over the past 2 years. Clark managed just 34 catches in 11 games last year for the poorly quarterbacked Colts. 33 in June, there was some talk that Clark would reunite with Peyton Manning in Denver, but the Colts signed Jacob Tamme, another former Colt tight end, instead....

Luck should look to Eli

NFL Soup makes a great point: no one knows more about emerging from Peyton's shadow that little brother and two-time champ Eli Manning. First love and history aside, Andrew Luck’s best bet to successfully follow the Peyton-era is to take a few pointers from Eli Manning. No one knows the cool shadow that Peyton casts better than Eli. No one has endured the comparisons more...
