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.

This all the way, PM will not miss this game and will insist on staying in than coming out if at all possible.

Runs, screens, quick slants are on the menu for this game. I may be wrong here but just I do not see a fast paced game by the Bronco offense. If they can get the running game and screens going to suck the safeties in to allow for a quick strike over the top now and then.

KC will do all they can to limit the YAC to the WR's & TE's.

Mike Florio is grasping at straws. My guess is that he had to write SOMETHING, and this is the "brilliance" he invented. The Broncos know what's at stake, with this game. They will attempt to put their best foot forward (Manning). I could see this kind of surprise, next week, when we play the Patriots. The Broncos know that they can't fall further behind, in the AFC West race...

Mods?


Listen numb nuts. You come in here with this BS and expect civility ?

I know you are so desperate for Manning not to play because he is going to expose your team as the frauds they are..............

So now the troll whose purpose is to troll is attempting to get non-troll members of the forums banned.

Gracious, you're stupid.

Holy all get out. I realize as the Queen of the OM Meltdown I really shouldn't talk here, but why are everyone's knickers in twists? OP posted a poorly written article by Florio who clearly needs to back off or maybe take more meds because the article is all conjecture with no substance? He wants to cause some sort of idiotic rumor that PM is not playing, which he will, to put out a half baked premised Twilight is the better option because KC has not game film on him. I am pretty sure KC can prep for a back up QB, they've been doing it all season. I think the OP's original commentary, the last 2 sentences got lost in the end of the article, but OP did seem to posit the article as being ludicrous. So again, unless you all thought Florio's article was a work of genius and want to contradict the OPs assertion that the article is not a good one, why the upset and the need to regress to childhood namecalling? Is it because OP is a Chiefs fan? Or appears to be?

Because OP is a troll? Maybe?

Because you don't usually post things that are the opposite of your beliefs when trolling another board?

Because the premise is ludicrous?

Just off the top of my head...

Thank you Miss I. I know that you represent the overwhelming majority of Broncos fans. It's too bad there are a few here who are doing their best to give Broncos fans a bad name.

I think this is a non issue all the way. It's not like our back up QB is a Tebow type of player who will run way more often then a traditional QB. I don't think a whole lot changes in terms of plays called if Brock is in there. We may run the ball a bit more I'm sure but I still think you see our passing offense called mostly the same. I'm sure teams prepare a little for the back up QB if the starter has an injury such as this where you could be listed as questionable.

Yet retard is still not the same as a racial slur.

Yes, the premise is ludicrous and while I will say I think the posting of the article is pointless and probably was put out specifically to incite the response it got, it doesn't mean people actually have to react to it that way. My point being if you think someone is a troll, don't ****ing feed it. Report the ****ing thread, put the troll on ignore, and don't post in it and continue it's life. By coming in and responding with stupid ass **** like "you are a retard", you only give the troll what they want and look like an asshat doing it. On the other side of it, the OP fed right back in with the need to call out the rules of the OM, which was not the way to handle it. If not a troll, ignoring the comments and moving on would've been the way to go. Anyway, who the hell cares. It's a message board full of some useful stuff and mostly inane bull**** that makes me laugh.

I don't think there was ever a chance that PmfM was not going to start this game. Florio's just being lazy.

There is no way Peyton doesn't play. This article is crap. The only likely possibility is that Peyton doesn't finish games anymore. Instead of blowouts where he is still playing with several minutes in the 4th, Brock will get the garbage minutes.

I'm willing to admit that I probably over reacted to being called a "retard." I have been called lots of things here and didn't take offense but I thought that crossed the line. Maybe it is because I know people who have kids with "special needs" and have worked with some that it set me off, and for that I apologize.

As far as trolling, I had no idea that posting the article, and pointing out how ignorant it was would set so many people off. I came across it in another forum and thought members here would find it just as big a laugh as I did.

If you look at any of my posts outside this thread you will find that i have focused on the upcoming game and discussion of who I think will win and why. I've been nothing but respectful of the fans here other than a little good natured teasing at some of the posters who tease me first.

Here I just posted a really stupid article so we could all make fun of it. I still don't know what set so many people off.
