Peyton Manning once ripped his ‘idiot kicker’ on national television and I don’t recall him apologizing to the Colts’ organization over it. He also ripped his offensive line a couple of times following tough losses and while he apologized to them privately, he did not do so publicly to them or his organization.
Broncos’ legend John Elway used to tear into his receivers on occasion. Jim Kelly of the Bills was never one to hold his tongue either. Tom Brady screams and hollers at players and coaches but he’s just a ‘fiery’ competitor though and never apologizes publicly. Heck, even Philip Rivers barks at his coaches when he disagrees with a play-call or series of calls. Yet how many of these and other ‘franchise’ QBs are forced to apologize to their coaches or teammates or owners for speaking their mind and in many cases, the truth?
Very few if any is your answer. If they do, it’s through a statement from the team or a publicist.

BEST OF MAXIM
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger looks at his passing statistics, and they're not all that bad.
His passer rating is up from his career average, as well as his average passing yards per game.
The completion rate is where it has been over the course of an eight-year career.
Only once before has Roethlisberger thrown more touchdown passes per game or fewer interceptions...
A lot has been made about the post-game comments made by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger following the overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. In those comments Roethlisberger seemed to be unhappy with the play calling of offensive coordinator Todd Haley during the game as well as the lack of no-huddle used.
Head coach Mike Tomlin was asked on Tuesday during his...
PUBLIC ADDRESS PEYTON
For the holiday season, visitors to the Denver International Airport will be greeted over the PA system by the voice of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Denver Broncos HC John Fox doesn’t plan to rest QB Peyton Manning down the stretch, according to USA Today. “That has not been an option, and not something that we’ll talk about,” Fox said. “Right now, our main agenda is to get better and improve so we can be playing our best football in January.” The Broncos are currently the second seed in the AFC and have a one-game...
There is a white elephant in the Mile High city and not many people are talking about it. Almost every football fan has thought the thought whether they’ve spoken it aloud or not. Better to sweep the idea under the rug and hope the Denver Broncos don’t have to deal with it but let’s face it; Peyton Manning is getting old and may not have much time left. Once again, Broncos’...
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin believes Ben Roethlisberger's post-game comments about offensive coordinator Todd Haley were all out of frustration, and said Roethlisberger is "on board with what we're doing."
"That was a tough, hard-fought football game, an emotional one, and. when you come up short, there are frustrations associated with that...
Let me be the first one to tell you that as much as I try and keep up, I’m not usually a trendy person. If you took a look at my CD collection, you wouldn’t notice many new artists. In fact, me saying I have a CD collection already proves just how untrendy I am. Get with the digital world, Sky! Well, there are certain trends I do pay attention to and it’s how players...
(Eds: Updates with quotes, details. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Knowing as well as anyone that time is no longer his friend, Peyton Manning went looking for a team last summer.
He gambled on the Denver Broncos, and when he signed the contract, the players who were already in Denver got the message: Their new quarterback thought the pieces were in place to...

HO HO HO! Merry Christmas everybody. This is the season for football, and what a marvelous season it has been so far. We have seen many things this 2012 season.It started with Bounty Gate and replacement refs, to field goals and touchdowns that weren't, to quarterback controversies, to the return of Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson (who both are top contenders for MVP and Comeback...
With 2 weeks remaining in the 2012 regular season, who do you think is the most likely to win MVP? Obviously, Adrian Peterson is having a record year. Peyton Manning has been his same old MVPesque self in his comeback with the Broncos. Tom Brady is leading the league’s top scoring offense. Matt Ryan has [...]
The NFL regular season is coming to a close and I wanted to post who I think deserves to win some the awards this year in the NFL. I would love to hear your thoughts and see who you think should take home some of the NFL trophies for the 2012 season.

If the Denver Broncos would have judged themselves by their record after the first five games, they may not hold the enviable position they do now.
It's part of the reason they're not paying attention to the Cleveland Browns' current mark, either.
