Why the Peyton Manning Slander?

Why The Manning Slander?All things considered, I haven’t been a Peyton Manning fan until this season. To be more accurate I have always been a Peyton Manning hater. I thought he has had great defenses and great wide receivers his whole career. The offensive lines haven’t been too shabby either. I never understood the praise he received in the media as the second coming of Dan...

Eric Decker has a wide open shot for a touchdown and falls (GIF)

First off, how did Eric Decker get this wide open?  And then, after running with the ball and having nothing but green in front of him, he falls down and ends up with only a 55 yard reception?  I felt bad for Decker.Peyton Manning was obviously disappointed, and things were made worse when Manning threw a pick six a few plays later.  It ended up being a 14-point swing in San Diego’s...

Ray Rice Gets Job Done vs. Dallas

Ravens tailback Ray Rice had 90 yards from scrimmage in the first half (47 rushing, 43 receiving) on 12 touches, but once again didn't see the ball in the second half and finished with 106 totals yards.Fantasy Spin:Rice punched in two touchdowns, but his week could have been much better if the Ravens had stuck to the ground game.

JJ Watt ridicules Aaron Rodgers' championship belt move after sacking him (GIF)

Pack on Track

I, like many Packer fans, was getting a little panicky after the Colts loss last week.  It felt like the season could suddenly be in question.  That another road loss to the undefeated Texans could send us reeling.  Aaron Rodgers's response?  "Shhhhh..." The Packers came out with both fists blazing Sunday night.  Part of it was the law of averages -- after so...

Packers 42, Texans 24

HOUSTON -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did an exceptional job dissecting the Houston Texans' defense with his dazzling combination of poise and precision.

And given the...

Manning still crossing paths with Chargers

Peyton Manning or Ryan Leaf? It was the big question going into the 1998 draft and one that was quickly answered that fall. Indianapolis made the right choice and Bobby Beathard and the San Diego Chargers were stuck with a colossal mistake. Nearly 15 years later, Manning is still crossing paths with the Chargers. On Monday night, he'll bring his Denver Broncos (2-3) to Qualcomm...
