  • Should we sit Peyton?

    Before I start, this is based on whether or not we win Sunday.

    If we lose, we'll be down 2 games to KC and having to go to KC in order to split.

    Also we have to go to NE in between these two games as well, and that's definitely not a cake walk.

    Providing we lose this Sunday, I think we should rest Peyton for a few weeks and have him fully ready for the playoffs. Obviously this means conceding the division to KC, but I think it doesn't matter.

    We can play on the road, and since the past 3 Superbowl champs have played at least two road games before getting there, it's not impossible at all.

    The main thing is having Manning 100% for when the real games start.

    He really needs to sit and heal for an extended period of time, since the bye didn't really do anything.

    Thoughts?

      Did you read anything other than the title? I don't think I said anything unreasonable.

        Would hobbly-kneed Elway have taken the bench in 1997?

          Sitting Peyton Manning for any amount of time if he can suit up is unreasonable in itself.

          50% Peyton Manning > Brockweiler

            If you tried to sit manning when he thinks he could play you would have a pissed off QB on your hands. Why do people make such foolish threads? As long as Manning can go, he goes, until the last game of the season.

              no, this is as much as a must win game as any. If the Broncos beat kc then both teams sit at 9-1. If the Broncos sweep kc this year then that is huge.

                Nothing a shot and tape couldn't fix.

                Some people are mistaking soreness with a broken ankle. People forget this guy played with his neck falling off for a while before he had surgery. Dude is tough.


                Also, I expect the chargers to sweep the chiefs.

                  We need him close to 100% for the playoffs, and since we're practically guaranteed a wild card spot, I don't see how it's an unreasonable decision*


                  *If we're like 2-3 games behind KC for the division after this upcoming stretch, otherwise the point is moot.

                    I agree. Also, I am f'in tired of having to watch our Div. rivals essentially get a free pass each week by having to play teams without their starting QB....sorry, I just can't handle any more of this ****. I have watched every one of their games with Sunday ticket and can't stomach any more slop. That Tuel interception (99 yard pick 6) at the 1 yard line chucking it right to the defender--I damn near broke the remote. The TN game where there was a ticky tack hit on Alex Smith BARELY out of bounds that gave them new life and a win.

                    That team needs to face a starting QB against a good team like ours and get property spanked and shown for the frauds that they are. Peyton has to not only play but beat the **** out of them!

                      No, I was saying after this upcoming Chiefs game if we lose.

                      I think having Peyton healthy is more important than homefield advantage IMO.

                        Sit him week 17 with the division/bye wrapped up. That's three weeks rest between games.

                        Just because teams have won on the road in the playoffs is no reason to take that approach on purpose...smh

                          The broncos have not made playoffs, yet you think we should rest our best player? It doesn't work that way in the nfl.

                            Peyton will be sitting on the beach earning 20% by the third quarter in this one.

                            Jump on them with both feet early, and make Alex Smith play from 3 TD's down all game.
