He might be, but it's no guarantee. He has a bit of Cutler in him. He isn't terribly accurate and doesn't make a lot of the nuanced throws (putting the ball on the correct shoulder for instance). As I type this he just put one wide of his running back.

He might grow into a great QB, but he has a lot of growing to do. More than I thought to be honest.

Get to put RayRay out to pasture. Sweet.

I do think Ravens are toughest of 4 teams in WC games we could have faced, but I also suspect Peyton prefers playing Ravens over Colts. The level of weird emotion and media coverage a Manning v Colts game would have gained may not have been the best option...

The Broncos won't be stumbling around in the dark like the Colts were.

No turnovers for the Broncos = blowout of the Ratbirds.

Houston is a much better team than Baltimore.

We're to the point where franchise QB's shine.

Aaron Rodgers
Peyton Manning
Tom Brady
Joe Flacco

One of these things is not like the other.

The Ravens were the last of the three possible teams we could have played that I wanted us to, but we did very well against them earlier in the year. Lets hope the team is firing on all cylinders and prepares diligently this coming week. Go Denver.

BS! It doesn't matter what the fanbase thinks. A well coached football team will be prepared.

Confidence and expectations of a win is not arrogance. Saying you are scared of a team you have faced and handled in their stadium is just embarrassing.

"Energy" affecting any NFL team is non-sense and message board gibberish. Players don't listen to sports talk, they get paid to come on and talk on sports talk. They live in a cocoon and aren't on the OM posting messages like regular Joe's.

I expect the Broncos to beat the Ravens, and if they lose its not because of anything a mediocre Ravens team did, but something the Broncos did or had happen.

Well, Joe Flacco is their QB, so maybe it's more of wishful thinking than brash confidence.

Anybody got some late game predictions? I say Hawks win 31-20. Pulling for Shanny but think the Hawks D is too athletic for a dinged up RG3 to deal with.

I'm watching this in a dc sports bar full of ravens fans. I'm sporting an old school broncos hat feeling like the cockiest oddman out of all time. These bastards are high fiving and gloating in their glory. I will let them have this minor bit of glory... This moment of happiness. Wait till next week b****es!!!

Go Broncos !!

Funny Simms and Nantz were talking how all day Luck was hitting 2nd and 3rd read. You haven't watched him much and he actually wins games late unlike Cutler. This kid drug a 2 win football team to the playoffs with a bunch of scrubs and 5 rookies on offense.

Broncos v Ravens, Texans v Pats — two rematches of hyped up games from a few weeks ago that were absolute ass kickings. I suspect better games this time around.

I'm happy Baltimore won. It wouldn't be nearly as fun talking smack to Indy fans at the game next weekend.
