Peyton Manning is a true leader, he took his Denver Broncos to 10-3 last night beating the Oakland Raiders 26-13. Manning should be in the running for his fifth M.V.P. and the leagues come-back player of the year. Manning is one of the greatest leaders on and off the field in the history of the NFL . He demands the best out of his guys and when he doesn't get it, you can see him telling his players about it on the side lines. People knew Manning was good, they knew he was great, but to come back after the injury he had and do what he is doing in his first season with the Denver Broncos is nothing short of amazing.
Manning completed 26 of the 36 passes he threw against the Raiders, he passed for 310 yards and this is his 70th game with over 300 yards in his career. The guy is going to be enshrined into the Hall Of Fame as soon as he is finished in the NFL which doesn't look like any time soon. Manning will no doubt be one of the best NFL quarterbacks to ever play the game. The Denver Broncos are having one of their best seasons with Manning on the field directing the teams offense. John Elway looks on from above in the owners box with amazement on his face. Who can blame him? Manning is still an amazing field general to watch and with this win he makes look easy. The Broncos are moving into the play-offs with the home field advantage on their minds. 3 more games for Manning and his Broncos, that is it before Post Season play. We know Manning will elevate his play once the post season starts. Lets hope the rest of this Broncos team can pick up their play to hang with him. It is going to be an exciting Post Season in the Mile High City.....

Running back Knowshon Moreno had a big night.
Big Pete provides some post-game thoughts on tonight’s game…
Has a complete and utter domination by one team over another had such a close score? This felt like a 50-7 football game, yet there we were, giving the Raiders hope when there really was none. Like I said in my nit-pick article, we need to crush the souls of our opponents...
On Sunday, wide receiver Brandon Stokley (hip) sat out as the Denver Broncos overcame the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-23.
With just four days to continue his recovery, Stokley is not expected to play on Thursday against the Raiders. Limited in practice throughout the week, Stokley is officially listed as “questionable” on the team’s injury report.
In Stokley’s place, Matt Willis...
Big Pete of the comments has a guest piece for your reading pleasure this morning. Thanks Pete for volunteering to do this! Let him know what you think in the comments!
Since earlier in the week seemed to be “Nit-Pick Day”, here is a list of the things I nit-pick the Broncos about.
#1. We seem to always play down to our opponent’s level.
What is it with the Broncos for the...
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was fined $25,000 for roughing Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman below the knee. The infraction occurred during their game last Sunday.
The Denver Broncos aim for their 10th win of the season when they take on the Oakland Raiders tonight at 8:20 p.m. ET on the NFL Network. The...
Brandon Stokley will play in Thursday nights game against the Oakland Raiders. Stokley missed the Broncos last game dealing with a wrist injury. His return to the team will obviously boost its offensive presence but will have a negative impact on targets for tight-end Jacob Tamme.
For the season Stokley has 36 catches for 449 yards and 5 touchdowns. Denver is a 10.5 point favorite...
Earlier this week, in the Fantasy Football Support Group post, I broke down the strange, new curse that is the Thursday Night Football QB conundrum. Basically, with very few exceptions, quarterbacks – and a lot of stars in general – have been terrible on the NFL Network this season. As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...
I gotta be honest, Raider Nation. I’m running out of things to talk about, report, and analyze in the AFC West. It’s pretty simple, really. The Denver Broncos are good. The Chargers, Chiefs, and Raiders are not. The Broncos clinched the division title this past weekend and now set their sights on a 2 or 3 seed in the playoffs. The [...]
