Tampa Bay (+6 1/2) at Denver

14 posts in this topic

Tough pick with the Colts only scoring 17 points at KC..

..but games are higher scoring in Denver because the defenders wear down

...Colts sure didnt cover 10 1/2 last week but they can cover 6 1/2 at home

Broncos defensive end Robert Ayers was excused from team meetings Monday so he could be with family on the East Coast after the unexpected death of his father.

No timetable has been set on Ayers' return

All except Robert Ayers were present at the Broncos practice Wednesday.

Ayers was excused as he returned east for the memorial services of his father who passed away unexpectedly Saturday night.

it was the first full practice of the season for RB/FB Jacob Hester. He was signed to a two-year contract on Monda

Hester is primarily a fullback as is Chris Gronkowski. two players at a position that rarely finds the field in the Broncos

' Peyton Manning-led offense. Hester and Gronkowski are both solid special teams player

TAMPAS SECRET WEAPON

I can see it now , Tampa puts Dallas Clark as a CB in Bronco red zone situations & sends him to a corner

Peyton sees him alone in endzone

Doesnt see the uniform only the face & hands and throws a strike thinking its a TD but its an IT

Tampa has problems at CB...interesting

Yes one oft he best if not the best at stopping the run and the opposite when it comes to the pass D

its a tail of D extremes, on offense they are more balanced as that stat link shows some comments back

Bucs QB Freeman looks forward to playing Peyton Manning

Josh Freeman was still in grade school when Peyton Manning broke into the NFL in 1998. The two quarterbacks meet for the first time Sunday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Denver.

"In talking to some guys who have played with Peyton, you hear about the layers upon layers of code words and the things he does to manipulate a defense,'' Freeman said.

"It's going to be cool to watch him operate in person.'' ( maybe he too will ask for an autihrahgph )

    • I see this thread has been moved.   Orioles up on the Yankees 3-1 bottom of the 5th. Montgomery has just been pulled. He wasn't getting pummeled but he threw way too many pitches. Went 3-2 on something like 8 batters. He threw 100 pitches in 4.1 innings. Too many.
    • 1970 and 2006. Colts were SB champs, NFL Network did these two years.  My two favorite years as a lifetime Colts fan. A lot of players and coaches to be proud of. I know to most, they don't belong together but I can't help it: both were my Colts, both wore the horseshoe. Unitas, Jones, Peyton and Luck. Moore, Mitchell, Dickey, James and Gore. John Mackey and Dallas Clark. The list goes on. To be a fan for all these years has been rewarding and frustrating. But I'm glad to have been a Colts fan and look forward to possibility seeing a team that ranks up there with some of the best that has ever worn the horseshoe. It may take a little time but I'm hopeful! C-O-L-T-S Colts!!!!
    • The mugshot will be a meme sensation!
    • Yep. We are going backwards and PG saw that and wants out. This teams has big contracts wrapped up in two aging guys Al and Monta and they are awful for this team. By the time you re-sign Teague to his new more expensive contract and depending on what you do with CJ who will be up for a bigger contract you really don't have much room to add anyone....even a shooter like Riddick might not be affordable. Its almost impossible to compete with the Cavs who are like 30 million over the cap when you have an owner like Simon and when you have to over-pay mediocre talent just to come play with you. I do think this team under-achieved but I'm not going to pretend its even close to contending. We are a long ways off from that and I'm sure PG realizes that....and its going to be very tough to convince him we can help him win it all and we will finally pair him with another superstar when we bring in Monta Ellis and say there you go Paul...there's your star upgrade...go compete. I'm sure he believes if he is in LA it will be easier to convince free agents to come sign and win something with him....after all...nowadays it takes 3 or 4 stars to compete with the Cavs and Warriors.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
