History shows franchise quarterbacks often miss a full season due to injury

The term “franchise quarterback” is tossed around often, even more often than the word “elite” to describe those quarterbacks. By definition, the franchise quarterback is a cornerstone, one that provides a sense of security. Once this elusive gem is found, a general manager is much more at ease. His life mission is complete, because he now has a long-term answer at the most...

2014 AFC West Preview

Last season, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos cruised to their second consecutive 13-3 finish and defended their AFC West crown before having their dream of a Super Bowl victory crushed by the Seattle Seahawks. But if Manning and the Broncos plan to repeat as conference champs, they’ll have to do so with a concussion-prone Wes Welker, and without wide receiver Eric Decker...

NFL 2014 Award Predictions: Aaron Rodgers Ousts Peyton Manning As MVP

It was pretty obvious who the best teams in the NFL were last season. It was even more obvious who the best player was. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, at the ripe age of 37, set every offensive record under the sun en route to earning the fifth NFL MVP award of his storied career. By default, Manning remains the favorite to win the award again in 2014. Yet the Seattle...

RGIII will have a successful year if…

He shows he has the makings of a leader of men instead of a momma’s boy. Master adversity instead of cracking under it.   He proves the Shanahans were wrong about whatever it was they said about him. (This line suggested by Mike Jones of the Washington Paper.)   In an age when Peyton Manning throws for 55 touchdowns, anything less than 30 scores by RG is insufficient.   Griffin...

Under center: Top ten fantasy quarterbacks of 2014

  Peyton Manning comes out on top again, beating out Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees for the top spot. Picking a quarterback for your fantasy squad is tricky business, especially because a quarterback’s real-life performance doesn’t always translate to fantasy.  In many cases, the value of a fantasy quarterback can skyrocket or plummet from year to year, not necessarily mean because...

Giants Fan Wears Peyton Jersey Saying “Eli’s Brother” on Back (Photo)

I can’t really explain this decision. A fan wore a Peyton Manning jersey to the final Giants preseason game, but the back of the jersey said “Eli’s Brother.” It’s definitely true that Eli has more Super Bowl rings than Peyton, but this just seems like trolling gone wrong. Then again, this fan is also wearing a Mets hat, so that pretty much sums it all up. [h/t Larry Brown Sports]
