I am a big Peyton Manning fan and I would like to see the Broncos do well this year. I just do not know if they have enough talent around Peyton to be competitive. This reminds me when Joe Montana went from the 49ers to the Chiefs. This will be interesting to see how Manning will cap his carrer with the Broncos.
If Peyton survives the first game against the Steelers without getting stiffed and a stiff neck, he should have a good season and the Broncos should win their division.
But I don't see the Broncos as a Super Bowl team this season.
guatams1, let me give you some further insight.
I see the Broncos as a Super Bowl team this season.
With a Hall of Fame quarterback who played like he did against the Steelers, hell yeah. The Broncos have as good a chance, if Peyton stays healthy, as any of the other top teams. Especially if they can beat up on their division and get a good seed in the playoffs and home field advantage.
I do not think so. He played exceptionally well against the Steelers (my review of the game http://xero37.hubpages.com/hub/NFL-Week … rs-Defense), but I do not think he can win a Super Bowl. The Broncos will win the division, and once in the Playoffs, anything can happen. But the AFC alone is too crowded with contending teams such as the Patriots, Ravens, Texans, and even the Steelers. The window is closing on him, but maybe next year.
Well, it will be interesting to see how he plays on the road.
If we've learned anything lately, we know winning the Super Bowl isn't about having the best regular season record. It's about who the hottest team in January is. Like you said, once in the playoffs, anything can happen.
Peyton's little brother knows that, twice. But I am very much looking forward to the Monday Night Game for two reasons: we see how Manning plays with his new team on the road in a hostile environment and we can see if the Falcons are legit this year. Going against the Broncos D is a better challenge than the Chiefs.
BLACKANDGOLDJACK - lol! I love the way everything begins and ends with a Steerlers match up!
Key words for Dever and their success is . .. IF PEYTON STAYS HEALTHY. He sure looked good the other night against the black and gold, but that was just one game. I would have loved to have had him M'iked up Monday morning to gauge how he weathered (is weathering) the hits he took Sunday night. If I was his mother or his wife I would be praying daily.
Denver in the Superbowl. . hell no. . . Its all about the Jets and the Niners for the big dance.
Hey wavegirl, I actually like the Jets. Except this Sunday. I like Rex Ryan. The dude is a hoot. Most of all, I like the Jets because I HATE the Patriots. I like Revis, a Pitt guy, and my concern for his safety makes me say no Jet fan should want him to play on Sunday. He should live another day to play against the Patriots, twice.
A man of my own heart. How can I not like you. Funny but in the years of the Cowboy dynasty I hated the Steelers. I have been lucky in that I have been to 2 Superbowls. One was SBX and the other was SBXIII. I rooted back then for the Cowboys (dont ask, for though raised with strict NY teams my dad used to travel to Dallas and he knew all the Cowboys, Staubach, Too Tall, Dorsett- you name them and I had pics and autographs of them) so of course being in the Orange Bowl I was not rooting for the Steelers! I hate Bradshaw and to this day I could do with less of him on FOX.
Yet as I have matured in my football aliances and I have come to embrace the Steelers. Especially their fans. PDH is one of them right here on Hubpages and if you visit me on Twitter if your not repping NY chances are you are from SteelerNation. The only team to this day that I totally can never ever remotely like is the New England Patriots.
But back to the game at hand. Tomorrow is going to be a big one. No Revis, no Keller. Ryan is a defensive man and Sparano is bringing an OL to protect Mark . . My brother keeps texting me not to get my hopes too high but as Deion said the other night. . I BELIVE in the New York Jets.
May the best (or better team in Week 2) win. Anyway you cut it I am hoping for a great game.
Peyton doesn't look like a Super Bowl quarterback tonight, what with 3 picks in the 1st quarter. Dang, why didn't he play like that against the Steelers?
Yeah, wavegirl22, SBX and SBXIII were some great games, especially the outcomes. Hmmm, a Cowboys fan way back then. I bet your favorite player was Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson who said Bradshaw couldn't spell CAT if you spotted him the "C" and the "A" and then Bradshaw taught Hollywood how to spell TOUCHDOWN during the game. If you still hate Terry, you must not have seen him naked in the movie Failure to Launch.
Hey, those Super Bowls were in Miami. That's where the Jets are going next.
He sure doesnt. Did you hear Gruden before the game started, he said Peyton is anxious tonight. Its as if he had a magic ball from how this game is going. As far as why he didnt do the same against the Steelers last week .. thats cause it was on Sunday Night Football. . Im probably off on this one but it always seems that NBC on Sunday gets better games then ESPN on Mondays! Luck of the draw perhaps.. ha!
Yes the Jets are headed to Miami .. not good memories for me. . last time I went to a game (other then the SB's I mentioned) was the Mud Bowl.The year was 1983 . .AFC Championship on the line... Super Bowl XVII one game away. Richard Todd picked off 5 times. Jets lose 14-0. We left the game sad and drenched .. and I swore the Jets off that night. Fast forward to 2009 and Rex Ryan comes to town. Slowly as his first season unfurled I came back to gang green. It isnt easy being green and many of my friends that are Giants fans call me dysfunctional.
Blasphemy that I root for both? Maybe but for me its like I get a double header each week!
And just for the record. . my favorite Cowboy from the day. . Tom Landry of course
I agree, Sunday Night FB is better than Monday Night FB. This week we get New England @ Baltimore on Sunday night as opposed to Green Bay @ Seattle on Monday night, I mean, I'll watch the latter but I will be intensely interested in the former. I have to (puke) root for the Patriots, what for the Ravens being in the same division as the Steelers.
Keeping on topic and Peyton, it's Houston @ Denver. Now this one should give us a better indication of how good the Broncos really are. One real good game and one bad game for Peyton. What's next?
As for your Jets, I'm betting they will shut down Reggie Bush and make the rookie QB beat them. No way do I see Reggie getting 172 yards and 2 TDs like he did against the Raiders, which totally ticked me off since my opponent in fantasy football had him and cost me the game.
And the Giants @ Panthers on Thursday night. I'll be rooting for the Giants, mostly because I intensely dislike the Cowboys (as opposed to hating the Patriots).

A New Era Awaits... What are the Goods, The Bad, the Uglies of Peyton Manning becoming a Denver Bronco..?
by Steven Escareno 6 years ago
All I can say is that if the reports on ESPN are true, then it does confirm my beliefs that the Broncos have NEVER believed that Tim Tebow was their "guy" for the future. And having a guy like Peyton Manning, does seem like a logical step to distance themselves from Tebow mania...

A lot of so-called 'experts' are saying that if Peyton Manning wins the Super Bowl on Sunday he will be considered the best ever at his position. I never got to see some of the greats play because I'm too young, but I'm starting to think that Peyton could be the best ever. I've never seen anybody...

I've been watching and playing American Football for most of my life and have seen many a quarterback play the game. I can honestly say that Peyton Manning is the best I've ever seen...bar none! And I'm not even a Colts fan...unfortunately I'm a Redskin fan believe it or not we do still...

I don't remember seeing a game on TV where you could hear the quarterback talk and direct things as much as last night's Monday Night Game. Peyton seems to be in full control of the offense. Pretty fun to see someone at the top of their game after all these years.Hurry Hurry (what does...

While I think it's a longshot and it's probably not a good thing to put Alex Smith through if you don't get Peyton, but it sounds like the 49ers have seen him workout and have given him a physical.
