Denver Broncos quarterback situation ranked one of worst in NFL

It's not all bad, plus we get to make fun of Brent. Rotoworld ranked all of the quarterback situations for every team in the NFL this week and the Denver Broncos came in 28th. With the departure of first ballot Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and his heir apparent in Brock Osweiler, it makes sense for outsiders to be wary of the Broncos quarterback situation. 28. Broncos, Paxton Lynch/Mark Sanchez Broncos 2015 Ranking: 17 In reality, there’s no way Denver’s quarterback play can be worse than it was last season. Peyton Manning was the worst starter in the league, and fill-in Brock...

Early over/under for Colts set at 9.5 wins for 2016 season

Last week, Bovada installed the odds for the Indianapolis Colts 2016 season, placing the over/under at 9.5 wins. Personally, I think that's the perfect place to start the over/under for the Colts, as it seems the most common prediction for the Colts is a 10-6 record. That would obviously be the over, but it's close enough to warrant a 9.5 over/under. There are also plenty of people who would take the under, thinking that the Colts will take the 2016 season as a rebuilding year and that they won't be great after an 8-8 season. I think the Colts will be better this year than they were last...

San Diego Chargers weekly poll question: Who will finish last in AFC West?

It's Saturday and that means it's time for the weekly poll question. Every year, everyone gives their picks for who will win the division, but that question is tired, so what we want to know is who you think will finish in last. The question has added relevance here since the Chargers finished int he cellar last season. From my perspective, the Raiders are the worst team in the division but maybe that's just the glow of the Chargers offseason talking. Do you think Peyton Manning-less Broncos will collapse? Do you think Andy Reid's Chiefs will find a way to grossly underperform with a...

What's the most embarrassing Colts jersey to own?

Colts fans have a reputation around the NFL for wearing a lot of jerseys to their team's home games, but not all jerseys are worth wearing. There are some - like Peyton Manning's number 18 jersey - that stand the test of time and are still frequently worn today, but there are others that get put in the closet or in a drawer to never be worn again. That's determined by how well a player does on the field for a team, and recently USA Today's For the Win site listed the most embarrassing jersey to own for each team. For the Indianapolis Colts, it was Mike Vanderjagt's number 13 uniform, with...

December 18, 2005: The Statement

Down by 10 on the road, can the Seahawks come back to win? At 11-2, commentators and other talking heads were still not trusting the Seahawks. In the midst of a nine-game winning streak, and the past two games blowouts against the Eagles (42-0) and the 49ers (41-3), there were still those who were saying the Seahawks were too soft, too finesse. When compared with the Peyton Manning-led Colts, or the 13-3 Broncos, the Seahawks, coming off of many, many losing seasons, just didn't have the same luster. The argument had some merit: Seattle has played only three playoff-bound teams: the...

Peyton Manning on football: "I got my fill"

For 18 years, Peyton Manning was an NFL quarterback, and for years prior to that he was a high school and college athlete as well. In other words, he has been playing football for most of his life, but this offseason he decided it was time to retire. It can't be an easy decision for any player deciding to give up the game he loves and has spent his life playing, but Peyton Manning doesn't sound like someone who is struggling with retired life. “People tell me that I’m going to miss football, that I’m going to have withdrawals. But I got my fill,” Manning said at the Northern...

Joe Philbin named Colts' best offseason addition by ESPN

At this point in the offseason, most of the major moves that are going to be made have already been made. The big rush of free agency is over, as is the NFL Draft. Because of that, this time can sometimes be very slow, but it's also a nice time to reflect on those moves made by teams in the past few months. Recently, ESPN did just that, as their writers listed the best offseason addition for each team. For the Colts, Mike Wells listed offensive line coach Joe Philbin as the best addition. The line problems for the Colts are well-documented. Philbin, despite his problems as coach of the...

Are the Titans Copying the Patriots Game Plan to Beat the Colts?

The New England Patriots have beaten the Indianapolis Colts four times in the past two years with a relentless running game, and the Titans are taking notes. Here's a novel concept: try to copy something the Patriots do to beat someone that keeps beating you. Looking at you, John Harbaugh, Mr. Offensive-Line-Trick-Plays-Are-No-Fair-Unless-I-Use-Them. The New England Patriots have been stuffing the Indianapolis Colts in a locker and taking their lunch money ever since Peyton Manning was ceremoniously dumped by the Colts in 2012, and in a few notable games, the Patriots employed the most...

Is there another number the Colts should retire?

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills announced that they will retire Hall of Fame defensive end Bruce Smith's jersey number, 78, at their home opener this year. It will be just the second retired number in franchise history, joining Jim Kelly's number 12. The discussion got us thinking: are there any Colts players who deserve to have their jersey number retired but haven't yet? Earlier this offseason, the Colts made official what they had been saying for years: that Peyton Manning's number 18 jersey is retired. That was a no-brainer, and Manning became the first Indianapolis player to have...

Peyton Manning helping two of his former offensive coordinators in tutoring Ryan Tannehill

Peyton Manning tutored Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill this offseason, which in turn helps two of his former offensive coordinators - Adam Gase (now the Dolphins head coach) and Clyde Christensen (now the Dolphins offensive coordinator). Peyton Manning is retired, but he isn't staying away from football completely. According to the Miami Herald, the former Colts and Broncos quarterback made the trip to the Miami Dolphins' facility earlier this offseason to help mentor Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.  It was Manning's idea, as Miami's new head coach, Adam Gase, was Manning's...

Chuck Pagano on Joe Philbin: "We got lucky we got him"

The Colts hired Joe Philbin this offseason to be their offensive line coach, and they feel fortunate to have Philbin coaching their linemen. There's no doubt that the biggest priority for the Indianapolis Colts this offseason has been their offensive line. Though not very active in free agency, the Colts had eight picks in the 2016 NFL Draft and used half of them to add offensive linemen, including first round center Ryan Kelly.  Furthermore, the Colts also hired a new offensive line coach in Joe Philbin, someone the Colts seem very excited to have around. Philbin spent the past four...
