Default All signs point to Peyton playing, but what if he doesn’t?

"Officially, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is probable for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs with an ankle injury. Unofficially, it’s hard not to wonder whether something more is going on.

The use of the term “probable” (which connotes a virtual certainty the player will be available for normal duty) and the repeated declarations from interim coach Jack Del Rio that Peyton will play has created the clearest possible message that Manning will start on Sunday night. But the chatter remains that Manning has a high ankle sprain, and that it’s not getting any better.

Unless and until the Broncos secure the top seed in the AFC, there will be no in-season opportunity to give Peyton a game off to expedite the healing process. And if Peyton is going to miss a game that counts, the game that makes the most sense to miss would be the one to be played against a defense that could transform the injury from something with which he can play to something with which he can’t play.

That’s why we’ve been keeping a close eye on the Broncos’ website and Twitter page today for a possible downgrade of Peyton from probable to questionable.

So far, he remains probable.

But what if the Broncos decide to seize on that minor sliver of doubt embedded in the term “probable” and shut Peyton down? It would be a brilliant maneuver, giving the Chiefs no time to prepare for Brock Osweiler.

It would, of course, require the Broncos to explain their decision to insist that Peyton will play but then not actually play him, and the Broncos could be fined by the league.

But who cares about a fine? It’s a cost of doing business in connection with trying to win a Super Bowl. The 1997-98 Broncos won two of them despite salary cap violations that eventually resulted in the stripping of draft picks.

But not the stripping of the Lombardi Trophies.

A fine paid to enhance the chances of beating the Chiefs a small price to pay for the pursuit of a championship. Losing to Kansas City on Sunday night would make winning a championship in 2013 much more difficult. If Peyton indeed can’t play, springing the truth on the Chiefs as late as possible would help the effort to win.

None of this means Manning won’t play. Indeed, there are no rumors he won’t play. All signs point to Manning playing.

But if for some reason Manning couldn’t play, the Broncos will have concocted the best possible con for making the Chiefs think they’ll see Manning and not Osweiler on Sunday night." source: ProFootballTalk

Yeah. I'm sure the Chiefs are worried that they might have to face Brock instead of Peyton!

"Oh, no.We have no game film on him!"

Then we win 13-10 on a late fg...chiefs scores would be a pick six and a 21 yard FG because we fumbled at our own 2

Agreed. I can't believe he thinks a healthy Brock gives the Broncos a better chance to win than Peyton does.

There is no game film on Brock anyway, so how would waiting until the last minute give the Broncos an advantage?

I might sit Manning anyway but not because it gives the Broncos a better chance to win this Sunday (it doesn't). I would do it because letting him heal and having him healthy gives the Broncos a better chance of winning later in the season. They could lose a couple of games and still get in as a wild card. From there they would still have a chance of making it to the Super Bowl.

Typical Bronco fan response.

Good job of using an offensive slur toward the mentally challenged, 3 times, while completely ignoring the issues brought up in the article.

Would you care to try throwing around the "N" word next?

Too cloak and daggery for this coaching staff, and I include Manning among that group.

He'll play.
I'd like to see them pull him for Ossweiler though, after establishing the run, a 3 TD lead, and verifying my assumption that the Queefs O won't be able to do anything against an inspired Denver D in a hostile environment.

No, but I'll gladly double down on calling you a retard, retard. You're obviously developmentally challenged.

How would switching to a rookie QB be a brilliant move? O.o

Prepare for him? He is a rookie.. he has no real game experience under his belt, except a couple of quarters. It would not be a "brilliant move" to try to "trick" KC into gasp.. having to face our ROOKIE QB.

Manning will certainly start. And our game plan will include a lot of quick passes, plenty of rushes.. we'll be fine. He is not a piece of glass. He is an NFL QB. NFL players get hurt, and play hurt all the time. He is very tough, and people greatly underestimate what he can do. You would NOT sit him unless his injury was such a detriment, that it would actually bring his play below Brock.. or make it so his chance of injury was very high. That's not going to happen.

Silly premise and idea.

I posted an article and pointed out that I thought the author's argument that the Broncos might start Osweiller was foolish. that was the "substance" of my post.

He then called me "r*t*rded" without providing any reason (substance) for making such a hate-slur insult.

How can you not see that?

And how has TheElusiveKyleOrton not been banned already if he has a habit of making these kinds of comments?
