I seem to recall Manning scored his 51st* TD in that game as well, so technically he did get the record, he just didn't break it. Oh, wait... no, he did break it, because the ruling on the field stands, even if the call was botched. Just ask the Packers about that regarding when they played in Seattle with replacement refs.

Point is, Wade Phillips can crow about this "victory" if he likes, but the truth is his team - like most of the teams he has been head coach for - got taken to the woodshed and whipped like a red-headed stepchild. No asterisk will ever take that shame away, nor will it help him get a permanent HC job again.

IAmRight: grinding_journalist: If Moreno vultures them from 3 yards out

LOL have you watched the Broncos? If they're on the 3, they're throwing first. If they're on the 1, they're throwing first and second. Maybe they'll consider a draw. But it's all about the Manning record train.

LOL if you've watched the Broncos you'd know the have a huge fumbling problem (16 baby! First in fumbles!)  especially inside the five.  It certainly has padded Manning's stats because he can't trust the running game so he calls a lot more passes in the banana zone but it's not just LULZ  Manning record train!!

crotchgrabber: Danger Avoid Death: crotchgrabber: Danger Avoid Death: They're playing the Raiders Monday night. If Manning plays he should be good for half a dozen more against a depleted Raiders secondary.

Sunday, but yeah.

LOL! Thanks! I've been going around all day thinking it was Saturday! Having what I think is a Caturday thread at the top of the TF Greenlit page didn't help any.

You got nothing on me. I thought it was Tuesday because I had a day off the other day. And I hope my neighbor isn't home for this game. He's an incredibly loud Broncos fan. Nice guy, but annoying on Sunday.

Celebrate with him cause the Broncos are awesome.  Since you're annoyed do it slightly after he does like you're a minute or two behind on the DVR.  It'll help him realize he's not in a cone of silence.  I've accidentally done this multiple times it works like a charm.  Or you can follow the ancient drunkard proverb and "just get some beer and join him."

Danger Avoid Death: BSABSVR: Wade Phillips is awfully triumphalist for a someone who lost.  You'd think that his team blew Denver out and the only thing that Denver had going for it was a touchdown pass.

I think Wade has coached -- and been fired by -- so many teams he can't remember which team he's coaching any more.

Not only that, but when Peyton broke the TD record the 1st time around, he got TD #49 against the Chargers whose DC at the time was... Wade Phillips.

Can you say "butthurt?"
