Peyton, 9 wins >7 point margin

10 posts in this topic

Peyton being Peyton.  He did this once before-

 

From Elias: The Broncos extended their winning streak to nine games with a 34-17 victory at Baltimore. All nine of Denver's wins have been by a margin of at least seven points. Over the last 10 years, only one other team posted at least nine straight wins by seven or more points in the same season. The common element between Denver and that team is the quarterback.  Peyton Manning and the Colts won each of their first 13 games by at least seven points in 2005.

Exactly, but hope they don't make the same mistake as the 05 Colts folding completely in the playoff.

Eerie that you mention that because the Steelers are knocking on the door as a #6 seed and an AFC South team could be #1 seed (Texans) and you could have the road warriors Steelers going to Denver for the AFCCG like in 2005??? DEJA VU, it would be!!!

 

But that is still a while away. Since you mentioned 2005, I thought I'd bring it up. At least let me be the first one to predict that wacky DEJA VU scenario :)

Dont forget the 05 Colts also handled the Steelers pretty well in the regular season, just like Broncos did in this season's opener...

 

Broncos should root for Colts and Bengals to block the Steelers outside the playoff!

Only difference is Ryan Clark of the Steelers cannot play at the high altitude due to his sickle cell issue, he can however play anywhere else.

Steelers arnt a threat to Broncos. IF they do play, its in Mile High. Which means safety Ryan Clark cant suit up (due to high altitudes). Clark is an underrated part of that D, and with only 1 safety out there, Peyton would have his way with the D. Just like he did at the beginning of the season.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
