NFL Scout: “Peyton Manning can’t throw the ball anymore.”

With the Denver Broncos now off to a 1-2 to start, people have noticed that Peyton Manning isn’t getting the ball out of his hands the way he used too.  In his defense though, he’s still rehabbing, so we know he’s not 100 percent healthy. One NFL scout told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that “Peyton Manning can’t throw the ball anymore.” I think that’s a little harsh...

Matt Schaub Loses Piece of His Ear on Illegal Hit.

 Matt Schaub lost part of his ear last night during an illegal hit from Broncos line backer Joe Mays.  Somehow Schaub only took off one play after the hit and he was right back in there to lead the Texans to a victory of the Broncos.  I've seen the helmet fly off a few times in my day, but never a piece of someones ear.  Nasty stuff right there.

Matt Schaub lost a piece of his ear during sack

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has something in common in boxer Evander Holyfield.

When asked about the play after the game, Schaub who threw four touchdowns during the contest gave the Houston Chronicle a heads...

So Maybe Peyton Manning should of retired

Maybe Peyton Manning should of stayed injured and retired. Not because he is playing bad currently, Manning Sunday versus the Houston Texans was 25/51 for 310 yards with 2 Tds and no picks.  But maybe because Matt Schaub threw for four touchdowns and his Broncos defense is a steaming pile. Houston Texans are the real deal at 3-0, but Denver right now looks like an Arena League...

Eli Manning’s Brother Number 18 Denver Broncos Jersey

TweetNo doubt Eli Manning has yet to reach his brother's status as one of the best quarterbacks ever. But this season may turn out to be the one where people think of the older Manning as Eli's brother, this Denver Broncos fan seems to be on the same wave length. I don't think it can be disputed that the New York Giants QB is more clutch than Peyton Manning ever was.

Raiders-Broncos Preview

After opening against three stout defenses, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos seem to have a more favorable matchup in Week 4. The Broncos' defense, however, might be short-handed, and that could lead to problems against an Oakland Raiders offense that appears to be finding its stride. The Broncos try to avoid losing their third in a row Sunday in an AFC West showdown with...

Titans-Texans Preview
