Two straight Pittsburgh Steeler previews on this blog have been for games against the Denver Broncos. But this isn’t the same Bronco team that the Steelers were upset by in the playoffs last year. Who would have ever thought that signing Peyton Manning would actually detract your media attention? Tim Tebow is gone. The offense is much more conventional. It’s a different animal this time around.
Steelers Offense vs. Broncos Defense: Throw the preseason out the window. Whatever it is that Todd Haley’s offense is going to be was not shown in practice games. We’re going to see on Sunday what the identity of this team is going to be. Are they going to attempt to go back to a more balanced attack and try to run the ball more and more effectively or are they going to be more pass happy? It’s impossible to know the answer to that question right now.
One aspect of the offense that I do know the answer to is that age is not going to prevent Ben Roethlisberger from playing the way that he has ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Everyone is picking the Denver Broncos to reach the Super Bowl in the 2012 season, because of the addition of Peyton Manning in the offseason. However, the act of reaching the Super Bowl by joining another team is something that is extremely rare in the NFL. The most recent similarity to what Manning is trying [...]
All eyes were on Denver today as the Broncos took on the Steelers in Peyton Manning‘s first start in over a year. So how did he do? I don’t want to get ahead of myself here, but Peyton Manning looked like his old self again as he led his new team to a victory.
It took a while to get used to seeing him in his new colors, but Manning looked great against Pittsburgh‘s tough defense...
We have already talked about the lack of success that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense had on first downs against the Denver Broncos earlier today. Now we will flip it over to see the job that the defense did against Peyton Mannning Sunday night on first downs.
One of the key areas needed to beat Manning is to keep him behind the chains and as predictable as possible when it comes...
A third-grade student in Greeley, Colo., was told he couldn’t wear a Peyton Manning Denver Broncos jersey to school on Wednesday because, well…. this is really unfortunate. “They told me I couldn’t wear 18 anymore because it’s a gang number and I had to take it off,” Konnor Vanatta told KDVR-TV in Denver. A district policy apparently doesn’t allow students to wear...
Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has become the third player in NFL history to throw 400 career touchdown passes.
Peyton joined Dan Marino and Brett Favre in the select group when he connected with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas for 71 yards early in third quarter to give Denver a 14-13 lead.
Favre has 508 career TD passes and Marino has 420.
Manning is the fastest to accomplish...
Manning silences the doubters as the Broncos get off to a hot start while the Chiefs stumble out of the gate at home against Atlanta.
Fitting as I begin to type this story that Peyton Manning is playing football. For many Vol fans, any mention of Peyton can't help but conjure up hatred for the "Mighty Gators" from Gainesville.
This Saturday, Tennessee welcomes Florida to The Hill after defeating FBS neophyte Georgia State 51-13 to move their season record to 2-0.
Against the Panthers, Bray was...
We all wondered, so did Broncos President John Elway, head coach John Fox and his dad, Archie Manning. Is it gone? Did he lose the magic? For thirteen years, Peyton Manning spoiled us. As quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, he helped create a dynasty. In those thirteen years, the Colts made the playoffs eleven times. They won their division eight times , made it to the AFC championship...
TheRedZone.org pointed out a big mistake the replacement officials made in Sunday night’s Steelers – Broncos match up.
No matter how much the NFL tries to mask it, the replacement officials continue to struggle.
Another case in point from last night’s Broncos 31-19 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Peyton Manning and the Broncos scored a touchdown late in the fourth...
Eli Manning Toyota commercials are the Peyton Manning United Way sketches. Okay, maybe not, but watching him dress like an accountant with Kenny Powers hair and not be able to catch a set of keys is still pretty funny. *runs out and buys a Toyota because Eli Manning is sorta funny* (via Terez Owens)- Follow us on Twitter @withleather - Follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and Burnsy...

Jack Del Rio has a big task ahead of him this week, as the Denver Broncos look to stop the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive attack. We all want to talk about Peyton Manning, but I sense that is where the game will be won or lost. [DenverBroncos.com]
Willis McGahee is looking to become an exception to the running back rules and achieve multiple 1000 yards rushing...
During the 2008 season, when the Pittsburgh Steelers held the NFLs toughest schedule, head coach Mike Tomlin coined the phrase, “It’s a five star match-up, because we’re in it.”It was a phrase Tomlin would use before big games, and it helped carry the Steelers past every other team on their way to the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl title.Fast forward to Week 1 of the 2012...
No redemption this time.
Not the way I really want to start a season's-worth of recaps. That game was a great battle between Pittsburgh's possession and Denver's quick scores, and 1 mistake ended it. Down 6 with 3+ on the clock is usually a given, only Ben tried to thread a pass to a well-covered Manny Sanders. 6 points the other way and that was pretty much it....
When last we left ideological fanny pack, Peter King, he was suggesting that Wisconsin suspend its season opener so Russell Wilson can play a pointless preseason game on its campus. PK also relayed an interested nugget about a scab refs screw-up but he couldn’t say what game it happened in, but it did happen, which was helpful. Petey was alarmed by the epidemic of snotty rich...
