keep in mind this defense along with the redskins are the worst in the league.

The good news is, broncos are doing what a good team does...hang up 30+ and move the chains at will

Coincidence that this defense is kicking ass the same time Mays has been benched?

absolutely not. bad every down player, even worse MLB.
he's a situational guy for run downs. he can thump when he hits a guy but he whiffs, takes bad angles or just flat out runs out of the play.

we didn't start slow, we haven't had to mount a great comeback, we've been balling all game long.

Looks like that bye week came at the perfect time. This team is gelling.

In previous years, I've always felt we've taken momentum into the bye and have lost it as a result. Big relief that we've picked up where we left off.

Sallie is Mike McCoy's nick name. Peyton audibled into what McCoy called a run play on 3rd down.

Let's just say the Saints score 3 more points. It'll be their lowest output since week 17 2009. If they score another TD it's the lowest output since week 1 2010. If they don't score it's the lowest since week 6 2008.

Impressive much?

You're the guy that tells a pitcher he's three outs away from a no hitter aren't you?

He came from the far side of the field to knock that ball down. SHows also how great hangtime Colquitt put on that punt. If you can rewind it, it is worth a rewatch. All 3 parts of the game are kicking serious ass. We might see Brock tonight.

Thoughts on the game.

Peyton-clear some space for your 5th MVP
DT, Decker and McGahee pack your bags for the pro bowl
Woodyard get your agent to call the Broncos about a long term deal.

DJ please report to Coach Fox's office and bring your playbook because your services are no longer required.

Elway, clear some Cap room for Clady's contract. It's going to be a biggun.

Big mistake not bending over a little for Clady in the off season. Now we will have to bend over a lot!

This team is ready to go on a major roll. It is starting to click. When that happens, it is contagious.

Clady absolutely dominated tonight, in the run game he walked Will Smith 5-10 yards down field several times. He is going to get paid Joe Thomas money and he is going to deserve it too.

A ton of credit has to go to Del Rio and the defense - they came out prepared and they executed all night long. The coverage was extremely tight and the pass rush forced a lot of incompletions, special mention to Vickerson who was a stud out there.

A lot of people dominated tonight. It was like the light suddenly came on and this team just gelled right in front of our eyes.

Like all great QBs, Manning is making everyone around him better. :thumbsup:

never seen one player have so much impact on a franchise as he did on the Colts. thank God the chain of events led us to the Manning era in Denver.

i don't know, that's a contract i can live with. he fully earned it and hasn't played this well since his rookie year or so.

Lock up clady long term, he is the only lt in the league that gets away the headlock hold

I think you're right that DJ will be an asset, but it is going to be at MLB most likely. Woodyard has earned the WILL and has been playing great there. Don't fix something that isn't broke.

The Broncos are so mother****ing lucky they convinced Peyton Manning to sign with them.

Dude is a surgeon on the field.

I think Peyton Manning wakes up every morning and ****s out a 300 yard game.

I enjoyed watching him sling it for the Colts....and am absolutely loving watch him do the same for our Broncos.

Yep, that's what is impressive to me. Broncos D was tremendous tonight.

The offense was more business like; they did what they were supposed to do...

Elway does not rely on luck. It was a surgical grade Free Agency pursuit that landed Manning. But luck had absolutely nothing to do with it. Unless you are talking about Andrew Luck. He had everything to do with it.

We probably won't know (or maybe we will after his career is over and he reflects on everything) but I would love to know the reasons Peyton did choose the Broncos over the 49ers.

In terms of the speculation, I rank 1) Elway, 2) Not wanting to face his brother Eli in the playoffs and 3) Wanting to stay in AFC

I think it was the head coach

He would much rather play under the laid back Fox.

Plus I am sure he got some assurances from the HOF QB John Elway.
