Hey Ham, I thought you had divorced yourself from Peyton Manning last week for the unforgivable outrage of having an off game in a 20mph freezing cold head wind, even though he had still brought the team back to tie and play to a stand still the home team through an entire over time and had the team in position for a final over time drive for a win, or at least a sure tie, before that option was taken out of his hands through no fault of his own.

Why do you still sport his Avatar and have his name as your 'adopted player' after the vitriol you were laying on him just last week?? You hedging your bets some??

Spiral, wow. I am not doubting your fandom. But we have lost 2 games on the road with lots of injuries to very good teams.

What teams would you define as not frauds?? New England who has lost to bad teams? Just Seattle?? Like Kaylore suggested, it seems by your definition that 31 teams are frauds, and if all are frauds then none really are.

It is not easy winning any game in the NFL. We are 10-2 and just went through a very hard stretch of 4 games and came out 3-1. Do I think the Broncos are a shoe-in to win the SB? No. But who do you think in the AFC is likely to beat Denver at home in the playoffs? Seattle is tough no doubt, but if we can avoid some of the injuries a bit I don't see it as a mismatch.

I love your passion, but your despair does not seem supported by the facts.

Down 21-7 on the road, in a big game, we come back to win shows a lot about a team.

You was called out because you over-reacted over a terrible loss in bad conditions to the 2nd best team in the AFC. I like our chances playing those guys at Mile High; and beating KC on the road in December is a step closer to the SB.

And one more thing, if you really worry about elite teams in the playoffs, then why don't you wait until then to call out your team. It's a month away, and a lot can happen.

I'm gonna park this criticism for a while as idk how relevant it is (though if we lose or struggle with TENN next week the cold is irrefutably a factor no matter what anyone says) but i wouldnt be bringing this up if i wasnt called on it. Today was a great win but this January will define the Manning era, and hopefully in a good way

No word from Wolf754life until Manning only throws 225 yards in a game. Until then and hopefully no loss in the near future, I hope he rarely posts his dribble.

Keep it up anyways, to ignore with you, wont rise to the bait after this. But im not backing down off what i said on the back of beating bad sides because being a blind homer is the only way to follow a team. You can bump this every week and i stand by it til i'm hopefully proven otherwise in january.

We are 11-2. Maybe it is just time to admit you were wrong? It's OK, it will be cathartic.

Why are you waiting till January? It's cold as hell right now in Nov Dec. the way I see it, he just bossed it in the teens. Almost pulled out a win where Brady and NE never lose in 20 mph, and beat KC at arrowhead in Dec, wait for it, in the cold. You can wait till January. I'm seeing him perform in cold games right now.

I said we could well win out from there, hardly a killer slate was it, arrowhead aside? My point all along was that we were beating up on cupcakes (still are) and pissing down our legs when we played anyone good...and it's going to take winning in the playoffs to change that opinion and for me to admit i was wrong on this, which id only be delighted to do. this seems to be lost on people here though

So it's not just manning in the cold. You think the entire team are frauds. Got it.

What's Mannings record as a bronco in "cold games"? Basing it off Colts games skew your theory. They are all road games. What's the average winning percentage for a starting QB on the road? Drops considerably.

Just to ask, you bring us this "fraud" thread but now want to curb it? You deserve to either be commended or lambasted as you are the one who wanted to go out on a limb and start this thread. If we continue to win in this weather, you will be one "fan" who doesn't get to celebrate with us.

Yeah and it's really hard after a loss on the road by three points to a good team to say the whole team sucks. That never happens - especially on the internet.

Also, you suck.

Now you're one of those "fans" that secretly hopes his team loses so he can be right on the internet. What a loser.
