If Patriots defense dropped back into coverage again, would Broncos return to run game?

In last year’s regular-season matchup between the Patriots and Broncos, New England dropped deep into coverage, yielding the run to Denver with the understanding that every run the Broncos called was one less chance for Peyton Manning to beat you downfield. The philosophy meant the Patriots would go on to give up a staggering 280 […]

Trent Green talks Travis Kelce, Knile Davis and playoff hopes for the Kansas City Chiefs

CBS analyst and former Kansas City quarterback Trent Green was generous with his time Friday morning, talking to me about his views on all things Chiefs. The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the New York Jets this Sunday, and Greg Gumbel has the call for CBS alongside new color analyst, Trent Green. Of course, Green is known very well around these parts for being an elite quarterback during his six-year stint with the Chiefs. Between 2001-06, Kansas City won the AFC West once and made the postseason twice, both times falling to Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. Still, the Green era...

When Peyton Manning met Tom Brady

When Peyton Manning met Tom Brady

Looking back to the first game in the Peyton Manning/Tom Brady rivalry, with a peek at what the Broncos were up to for perspective. The Manning/Brady rivalry is bigger than the Colts/Patriots or Broncos/Patriots matchups ever will be. The week these two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks face off is like a yearly love fest for sports media. Who's the best quarterback, who had the best teams, coaches, luck, etc. questions will never go away. One of the things that makes the Manning/Brady games so special is that we will most likely not know when the last one will be before it happens. This...

Which former Colts great would you add to this year's team?

Which former Colts great would you add to this year's team?

If you got to choose one former Colts great to add to this year's team, who would it be? Okay @SBNation, this one’s for all teams: Add a football legend to your roster. What happens? http://t.co/ZYWdJccARv #GMCPlaybook— Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) October 29, 2014 This week's question from Marshall Faulk deals with a hypothetical scenario - if you could bring back one legend from your franchise's history, who would it be? I make no secrets about the fact that I think Peyton Manning is the greatest player in Colts franchise history, and I also think that Johnny Unitas is the second...

Chiefs No. 1 pass defense faces Jets No. 32 passing offense

The Chiefs and Jets are headed in different directions in the passing game. What happens when the NFL's No. 1 passing defense goes up against the NFL's No. 32 passing offense? The Chiefs of course are the No. 1 passing defense by yards after facing Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Colin Kaepernick and Philip Rivers. There are reasons for that but they've played better than anyone expected thus far. The Jets have one of the two or three worst quarterback situations in the NFL. They are last in passing yards. Their young starter was benched (a guy by the name of Geno Smith) for the veteran who...

Deep drive: When Peyton Manning and Broncos look to attack downfield, Patriots have defenders to answer challenge

The Denver passing game is one of the best in the league, averaging 297 passing yards per contest, third-best in the NFL. Manning has a fleet of talented pass catchers at his disposal, […]

Which is the better team-building approach?

ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert writes an interesting story today comparing how the Broncos built around Peyton Manning to how the Patriots constructed their roster around Tom Brady. The piece examines the perception that the Broncos are “all-in” for Manning, while the Patriots are seen as having a much more conservative approach and are sticking with their team-building blueprint without heeding Brady’s advancing age. Here are four takeaways from Seifert’s piece: • The 2014 AFC race will serve as a referendum on both the Broncos' aggressiveness and the Patriots' patience (or...

If Peyton Manning and Tom Brady were teammates

Marshall Faulk and GMC Playbook's question of the week asks how we would merge the rosters of the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots. My challenge to @PatsPulpit & @MileHighReport: Merge your teams into one roster. Who starts? Who sits? http://t.co/HdRhdXjdJ2 #GMCPlaybook — Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) October 29, 2014 Wow, this is a crazy one. Let's get straight to it, position by position, shall we? Offense Quarterback: Peyton Manning. Come on, did you really expect any controversy from me here? Manning is the reigning MVP and the current favorite to win the award for a...

Sammy Watkins: NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month, October 2014

Sammy Watkins is a very good football player, and he had a heck of a run in October. His strong stretch of play has earned him Offensive Rookie of the Month honors. In four games played during the month of October, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught 21 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns. For his efforts, he has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month. The feat includes back-to-back, 100-yard receiving performances in successive wins over the Minnesota Vikings (17-16, in which Watkins recorded the game-winning touchdown with seconds to spare) and the New York...
