Denver offers Manning more than a ‘Play Ahead’ defense

The 2012 Denver Broncos have the makeup to be the best team that Peyton Manning has ever been a part of. This is not because of their explosive offense, or impressive but rather the emergence of their defense as one of the league’s premier units. In Manning’s days as a Colt, he had a defense that was referred to as a ‘play ahead’ defense. That is not the case in Denver, as this Broncos’ defense is primed for success regardless of the situation. The quarterback position was the missing piece to this team in 2011, and now they have one of the league’s best ever.

Post Mortem: Robert Griffin III as good as advertised

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.

Comparing 2012 NFL rookies to their contemporaries

The 2012 season is just days away from kicking off and this looks like an exciting season with a lot of big-name rookies expected to make a huge impact. But you can’t talk about those rookies without the inevitable comparisons. Here’s a look at some of the top rookies and how they compare to their contemporaries.

My story: Looking back on the trip to see the debuts of Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck

Last week, I went on an eventful trip with a fairly narrow focus — Check out the preseason debuts of Broncos QB Peyton Manning and Colts QB Andrew Luck. Off to Chicago for Manning vs. the Bears and then to Indy for Luck vs. the Rams. What did I find? That as similar as Manning and Luck seemed from the outset, they are even more similar upon close examination. In a way, Luck is the ghost of Manning future, while Manning is simply trying to be the ghost of Manning present. Or something like that. It’s just amazing how much they seem like one another — smart, cerebral passers with flat affects who grew up watching their fathers deal with […]

My story: A reflective Broncos QB Peyton Manning appreciates what led him to last night

We spent last night in Chicago, checking out the preseason debut of new Broncos QB Peyton Manning. The ex-Colts star played just 12 snaps, but to him, it meant so much more. Manning was serious last night, in game mode. Right up until he stopped his interview to show his appreciation. He missed an entire season, underwent several neck surgeries, changed teams… and has emerged. And he wanted to thank the people who made it happen. Manning led his team on a 50-yard drive yesterday before throwing an interception. He also converted a third-and-17. But we’ll have plenty of time to discuss all the football things. Last night at Soldier Field wasn’t about that. Last night was about Manning’s trek […]

Hello from Chicago… What to expect from tonight’s Bears/Broncos preseason game

Hello from Chicago, where we’re set to take in tonight’s Bears/Broncos preseason game. You can tell me they don’t count all you want (they don’t), but I’m still pretty psyched. Can’t go wrong with watching Broncos QB Peyton Manning’s return. So, what will you see tonight at Soldier Field? Well, as our buddy Albert Breer reported, essentially one or two series from Manning. If they score in 10 plays or whatever, he’ll be out. And if it’s time for the starting offensive line to come out, don’t expect Manning out there with the backups. Still, it’s the most football he’s played in a long, long time. That Wild Card loss to the Jets in 2010 was his last snap, an […]
