I still can't watch any of Peyton's sing-song commercials without hearing "Na-tion-wide, your-kid-is-dead" in my head.

Good. Last thing we need is for an old man with a walker to come out and start lobbing up pick-6 ducks while we're trying to maintain playoff position. When he's healthy - IF he's healthy - I'll welcome him back to the starting lineup.

You'd think a guy like him could have spent some of his $$$$ on singing lessons.  But that might be the appeal, I suppose.

You're a 2 game losing streak from begging old man Peyton to drag his walker back on the field.

Don't quote me or anything, but I don't think he's coming back. A 40 year old man's body just doesn't recover the same as a 25 year old's. It's entirely possible he shows up for the playoffs, but I fully expect him to announce his retirement whenever the Broncos' playoff run ends.

Marshawn Lynch also out for the rest of the season with a hernia surgery, could be the end of his career too.

Eh, no. After the Patriots were stuffed fairly well by the Bills this week, I don't see them thrashing out defense, especially since the Patriots are just about out of wide receivers.

Do I think Denver will win? I'm not optimistic. But I do think they'll be competitive.

Oh, I agree, he's done after this season, and even if he wants to keep playing who is going to offer a contract to a QB who's practically crippled?

Honestly, if Kirk Cousins had someone giving him quarterbacking advice that wasn't Jay Gruden, he has the potential to (eventually) be somewhere in the second tier of quarterbacks in the league.

If the Broncos let Peyton go, it's entirely possible he gets picked up as a backup by a perennially losing team for the exact purpose of mentoring a young quarterback with tons of potential. The Titans come to mind, maybe. That scenario is obviously predicated on Manning swallowing some pride and being willing to ride the bench, but I don't think it's out of the question.

I'm putting my money on the Jets. They certainly need a QB, they have no problem spending money stupidly and he'd jump at the chance to play in the same town as his brother.

There is exactly zeo chance of peyton playing for another team.   There is barely a chance to play another season period.

He'll be back.   Peyton will play the last week of regular season.   If he's good, he'll have one more playoff run. If he's bad that game and Ost was bad the prev two weeks, he'll have one more playoff run(assuming they make it).    If he's bad,  and Ost was good, he'll be magically injured and Ost will be the new qb for post season

With the Patriots ironically short of tools, a Swiss-cheese o-line and traveling on a short week it might be that whoever is taking snaps for Denver is moot.

I say this as a Texans fan. I don't think the Patriots have too much to worry about. The Patriots coach is Bill Belichick & the Broncos coach always looks confused as if he just woke up from a nap.

Is Wade Phillips still the Broncos DC? If yes then I'm not overly concerned. If no, my concern level is undecided.

Patriots have a good defense, but you're absolutely right it's really playing into the hands of Denver's defense, in the end it'll probably take special teams to win that game for either team.

I could see that. I think the game hinges on how fast Brady can release the ball and be accurate before the pass rush gets to the backfield. Usually a non-factor for Brady but is Amendola playing? Seems they're down to suiting up the ninth-caller for WRs. New guys generally don't share the Jedi skills with QBs.

I'm setting the over-under on roughing the passer penalties on Brady at 1.5. Although I don't foresee Denver getting pissed off about them as from what I remember this year the previous calls have been pretty much justified to date. YMMV.

As a Broncos fan I'll take it. There's a bit of stupidity here and there (i.e. Ward) but it's the price of an aggressive defense.

The thing about Belichick is that he rarely tries to force the issue by trying to do what you defend best. According to the stats I've seen Denver has a very good passing D (#2 in yards per game, I believe) and a slightly-less very good rushing D (but still in the top 10). So I don't think he's going to look at his offense and see Jack from Accounting is his starting #2 WR and declare "we're going to throw the ball all over the place". I'd imagine they're going to try to establish the run (or at least try harder than they did against Buffalo's DLine) and hope to get the play-action passing game going. If Denver stonewalls the run and forces Brady to win the game with his arm then yeah, it could get ugly for the Pats. That quick-pass offense works great when everybody is on the same page, but with backups and third stringers it's far less reliable.

Usually a non-factor for Brady but is Amendola playing? Seems they're down to suiting up the ninth-caller for WRs. New guys generally don't share the Jedi skills with QBs.

The thing about Belichick is that he rarely tries to force the issue by trying to do what you defend best. According to the stats I've seen Denver has a very good passing D (#2 in yards per game, I believe) and a slightly-less very good rushing D (but still in the top 10). So I don't think he's going to look at his offense and see Jack from Accounting is his starting #2 WR and declare "we're going to throw the ball all over the place". I'd imagine they're going to try to establish the run (or at least try harder than they did against Buffalo's DLine) and hope to get the play-action passing game going. If Denver stonewalls the run and forces Brady to win the game with his arm then yeah, it could get ugly for the Pats. That quick-pass offense works great when everybody is on the same page, but with backups and third stringers it's far less reliable.


Solid. I'm predicting that the game will be won/lost based on the outcome of the NE offense/Denver D possessions. I can see Osweiler being more of a manager and eking out 20-ish points on the other side of the ball.

AdamK: Patriots have a good defense, but you're absolutely right it's really playing into the hands of Denver's defense, in the end it'll probably take special teams to win that game for either team.


If that's the case then putting a boat load of money on the Pats is a good play.

AdamK: Marshawn Lynch also out for the rest of the season with a hernia surgery, could be the end of his career too.


The Seahawks are saying they're hoping Lynch will be back for the regular season finale at the Cardinals.

Wadded Beef: tnpir: js34603: tnpir: Good. Last thing we need is for an old man with a walker to come out and start lobbing up pick-6 ducks while we're trying to maintain playoff position. When he's healthy - IF he's healthy - I'll welcome him back to the starting lineup.

We'll see how you feel after they get stomped this week and Osweiler looks like a guy making his second career start.

You're a 2 game losing streak from begging old man Peyton to drag his walker back on the field.

Eh, no. After the Patriots were stuffed fairly well by the Bills this week, I don't see them thrashing out defense, especially since the Patriots are just about out of wide receivers.

Do I think Denver will win? I'm not optimistic. But I do think they'll be competitive.

With the Patriots ironically short of tools, a Swiss-cheese o-line and traveling on a short week it might be that whoever is taking snaps for Denver is moot.

After watching the Bills knock Brady ass-over-head for three+ hours on Monday, if I were a Pats fan I'm white-knuckling it Sunday night that Brady leaves the field under his own power.


Very rare that the same problems that plague the Patriots in one game continue in the next game. They'll figure out a way to fix it, or cover it up.

Speaking of which..."The blueprint". It comes up every time there's a team that just can't be beat. People will point to what the Bills did and say, "See? That's all you need to do." Unfortunately those unbeatable type teams are already one step ahead of you.

The right thing to do would be to look at how they got beat or almost got beat and figure out what they're gonna have to try to fix that problem and shut THAT down. You might have to follow the "blueprint" long enough to get the team into adjustment mode, but you have to be a step ahead of them.

This doesn't just go for the Pats. We've seen it with Denver, GB, Seattle, and the Manning Colts.

True Pats fans will know that the refs will take good care of their guy. I am going to go ahead and there will be at least 3 roughing the passer penalties called for Brady.

That's true. Buffalo is still pissed off at all the roughing the passer calls they were flagged for on Monday night. And I wouldn't be surprised if Denver is flagged for two or three times as many on Sunday night!!!

I'm setting the over-under on roughing the passer penalties on Brady at 1.5. Although I don't foresee Denver getting pissed off about them as from what I remember this year the previous calls have been pretty much justified to date. YMMV.

As a Broncos fan I'll take it. There's a bit of stupidity here and there (i.e. Ward) but it's the price of an aggressive defense.

My joke went over like a fart in church, Buffalo was flagged for zero roughing the passer penalties despite battering Brady like he had an odd hair color and wasn't living with his birth parents.


I was wondering what you were driving at.  I distinctly remember Brady getting knocked flat, immediately looking to the Ref, then looking confused becuase zero farks were given.
