This offseason has been characterized by quarterback changes. Manning to Denver, Luck drafted by the Colts, Griffin drafted by the Redskins, Tebow vs. Sanchez, Weeden vs. McCoy; they're all great story lines, but they also highlight a growing perception that may just be completely off base. You need a quarterback to win a championship. That's completely true, but you also need a team around him. Peyton Manning may be the greatest example of why you need a quarterback to win titles, but you also need a team. Manning was able to manufacture one championship with the Colts. Maybe I'm way off base, but a guy that is considered by some to be the greatest quarterback of all time should have more than one ring at this stage in his career. The problem in Indianapolis was never Peyton Manning. He just never had a complete team around him. Eli Manning is a great example of how a team pulling together is just as good as having a great quarterback in today's NFL. Eli Manning i...

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...

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...

Brandon Marshall says Jerry Rice couldn’t even succeed if he played in Miami

Whether their ownership group likes it or not, the Dolphins currently have a nasty stigma attached to their organization. At the moment, it feels like nobody wants to play there. Miami was considered a front-runner to land Peyton Manning when he hit the market, and we saw how quickly that fell apart. Then it appeared they would sign Matt Flynn, but but Flynn ultimately chose Seattle...

Jeopardy teen contestant confuses Aaron Rodgers and Eli Manning (Video)

A week or so ago, a clip of a Teen Jeopardy contestant incorrectly guessing LMFAO on Jay-Z question hit the Internet at full blast. Well, that same contestant "Kevin" moved on in the tournament and gaffed on this question mistaking Eli Manning for Aaron Rodgers: To be fair to Kevin, there was some technical difficulties that might have prevented him from...

The New Fast And Furious Offseason

The hits just keep on coming this NFL offseason. Free agency started off with a bang, with the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Saints and bounty scandal, and the draft. The Seattle Seahawks have already signed nine of their ten draft picks, including first round pick Bruce Irvin, more on him later. What a difference a year makes huh? This time last year we, as fans, weren’t worried...

Teen Jeopardy! contestant doesn’t know who Eli Manning is (Video)

The kids on Teen Jeopardy! are supposed to be geniuses, yet none of them know who Eli Manning is? They need to put down their physics book and pick up a New York Post once in a while. OK, bad example. Maybe stop watching Nat Geo and start mixing in a little more ESPN. Alright, another bad example. I just know all the useless facts in the world are worthless if you can’t recognize...

WR Rueben Randle showing Giants he's NFL-ready

The New York Giants boasted that Rueben Randle was NFL-ready after taking the LSU receiver in the second round of draft, and the kid didn't disappoint as the Super Bowl champions opened a rookie minicamp on Friday. Randle went up high to catch a pass along the sideline and later burned third-round draft choice Jayron Hosley on a ''go'' pattern in the morning...
