Found September 18, 2012 on The Pass Rush:
We escaped Monday Night with a win thanks to our Monday Night teaser special with the Broncos (+10) & Over 44. My initial gut feeling was to be all over the Falcons (-3), but there was lots of chatter of a Peyton Manning outright win, so I figured, there’s no way Peyton will lose by double digits on Monday Night, right? Well, he almost did, but we got the cover with our teaser thanks to an attempted 4th quarter comeback. We nailed our Sunday and Monday night picks to continue the momentum into week 3. We are now just three days away from a Thursday Night game between the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants. NEW YORK GIANTS @ CAROLINA PANTHERS (+1.5) Week 2 Recap Both the Giants and the Panthers got their first win of the season last week. Eli Manning fueled a 2nd half comeback as he threw for over 500 yards and won 41-34. The Giants were down 24-13 at the half and I was delighted with my Bucs (+7.5) pick. The Giants were then down 27-16 going into the 4th until Eli Manning we...

Peyton Manning addresses arm strength with quote popularized by Popeye (vid)

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said that players in Denver Broncos offense are still in the process of getting to know each other and “all continue to learn” as he discussed the substandard offensive output — at least for an offense led by him — during Sunday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Discussing a [...]

Coughlin angry at Schiano for having Bucs hit Manning on kneel down

Giants coach Tom Coughlin yelled at first-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano after the Giants' 41-34 victory on Sunday because he didn't like that Schiano told his players to knock Giants quarterback Eli Manning down when Manning was taking a knee to run out the final seconds, ESPNNewYork.com reported. "I don't think you do that," Coughlin said after the game...

Monday Night Football: Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons Preview and Prediction

Both the Broncos and Falcons are coming off of double-digit wins in Week 1, albeit against much different teams. The Broncos defeated the Steelers in Peyton Manning’s Denver debut, while the Falcons easily defeated the lowly Chiefs, who are playing like the worst team in football right now. This game will be very evenly matched and will feature two explosive offenses. Peyton Manning...

Falcons pick off Manning three times, hold on to edge Broncos

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons added to what was already one of the biggest questions of the young NFL season: Is Peyton Manning healthy? Atlanta picked off Manning three times in the first half Monday and survived a late Denver rally for a 27-21 win in front of a raucous crowd at the Georgia Dome. Matt Ryan threw two touchdown passes, one to Tony Gonzalez and the other to Roddy...

Manning falters early, Broncos lose to Falcons

Peyton Manning's second game with the Denver Broncos looked nothing like his first. Manning threw interceptions on Denver's first three possessions, and the Broncos could not recover from the poor start in a 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. In a 3-hour, 27-minute game marred by questionable decisions from replacement officials and long clock stoppages...

Vince Young doesn’t understand why he’s treated differently than Peyton Manning

There are two ways of looking at this. Maybe VY just having a bad day and wanted to retweet someone who was making a terrible comparison, but was supporting him or VY really believes this. If it is the former I get it, if it is the latter then you have your answer as to why he isn’t playing currently in the NFL. I know all my haters are happy that I’m not playing football...

The Football Fan’s False Dichotomy: Rooting For Laundry

Editor's note: With Peyton Manning playing again tonight, and so far this season looking like himself, this is a fantastically written piece by Josh Boeke about the nature of fanhood. Specifically, Boeke takes on the nature of Colts fans and their now ex-quarterback Peyton Manning. While plenty has been written on the issue, this piece, in my opinion, is one of the most well...

We nailed two picks at 1:00, lost two at 4:00, and closed out Sunday of week 2 with a win thanks to the 49ers over the Lions.

DENVER BRONCOS @ ATLANTA FALCONS (-3) The spread has not moved on this line at all, standing pat at Falcons (-3). I was expecting...

Giants-Panthers Preview

The New York Giants got an all-time passing performance from Eli Manning to come out on top last week. With Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers up next, it's possible that the Giants will need another spectacular game from their star quarterback Thursday night.

Eli Leads Giants Comeback over Buccaneers

Final Score: Buccaneers: 34 Giants: 41 Eli Leads Giants Comeback over Bucs The second game for the season started off poorly for the Giants, much like the opening night game against the Cowboys; this time around, the Giants were able to get it together and mount a successful comeback against the Buccaneers, pulling out the 41-34 win.  The Giants were down 27-13 early in the...

New York Giants vs. Carolina Panthers: Three Bold Predictions

Thursday night's matchup between the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers could very well be one of the the most exciting games of 2012, as both teams are coming off of impressive wins in week 2 and fully expect to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Looking At The YAC Allowed In The Steelers 27-10 Win Over The Jets

Last week I noted the poor job the Pittsburgh Steelers did in their opener against the Denver Broncos at tackling the catch as they allowed 126 total YAC in that game. Now of course it did not help that Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas had 70 of those yards on the 1 yard screen pass from quarterback Peyton Manning that ended in a touchdown 70 yards later, but you just can&...

Outrage over Greg Schiano, Buccaneers’ actions on kneel down is ridiculous

The Giants and others in the media are complaining about the Buccaneers’ behavior on the last play of Sunday’s game, and I’m not really sure why. The Bucs were down 41-34 and had just given the ball to the Giants after an interception by Josh Freeman. Sure they were upset about blowing a 27-13 lead and then turning the ball over in the final minute, but the game wasn’t...
