Taking Bad Schotz:
Through the first 3 games of this NFL season Peyton Manning’s neck seemed to be affecting his play. He was seen grimacing on the field and the usual zip he has on his passes was faded. The Broncos were 1-2 and Manning had 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Those are not typical Manning numbers. People started to wonder if the 5-year 95 million dollar contract the 36 year old signed was worth it.

Ever since their 1-2 start Manning and his Broncos are 4-1 with their only loss against a dominant Patriots team. Manning has 15 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions over the stretch. He has been very efficient with a completion percentage of 75% and a QB Rating of 88.175. Manning has been the most dominant quarterback in the league during this stretch and looks like the Manning of old. He is calling audibles at the line, eyeing down defenses, and scoring touchdowns.
Manning has already passed for 700 more yards than Tebow did all last year, and he h...

@darrenrovell: A week before Colorado legalizes marijuana, Manning acquires 21 Papa John’s franchises in the state. Guy can do no wrong.
It may be too soon to put Super Bowl expectations on the Denver Broncos, but the only reason Peyton Manning came back was to win a Super Bowl. Manning chose the Broncos and his decision has proven to be a good one, especially with the remaining teams they have to face. When you look at the remaining schedule for the Broncos in 2012, they face chump teams with the exception of the...
Peyton Manning has won four NFL MVP awards. The Denver Broncos quarterback is no stranger to what it takes to win the NFL MVP. In fact, although he did not play a single snap during the 2011 NFL season, which turned out to be his final one with the Indianapolis Colts, many felt as if Manning still deserved a few votes for MVP as it proved just how important he was to his team and...
Will the Arkansas economy improve with the next Arkansas football coach hire? That might sound crazy, but Peyton Manning has apparently helped the economy in Denver.
Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the Broncos were on the ropes! This was their chance, and they let it slip away. Also, don’t forget...
Early in the fourth quarter it appeared as if the Bengals might be on the verge of snapping their three-game winning streak as they fought back from a 17-3 early third-quarter deficit and scored 17 straight points.
That didnt faze Peyton Manning though as he regained control over the final 14 minutes and led the Broncos to a 31-23 win at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Bengals have...

The Colts lost to the Jags already, but this seems like a much better team now. This is a game they need to win to be in the playoff hunt.
Eli Manning has had a really rough stretch, but the Bengals secondary is just what he needs to rebound. Expect some big numbers coming from this offense.
In the 2011 season opener, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw for 422 yards, surpassing Peyton Manning's rookie single-game passing record.
One year later, Manning's successor in Indianapolis has outdone them both.
In the Colts' 23-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday, Andrew Luck completed 30-of-48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns, as he enters the NFL record...
