155 posts in this topic

As of right now, 19 high, 10 low, 20% chance of precip (59 now!). That's pretty cold by Denver standard, I think. Let's hope it won't be too bad.

 

Thats not too bad. Hey for all we know itll be 50 and sunny.

It used to kind of annoy me when the Patriots or Colts would lose to some other team in the playoffs. Always felt like it should come down to those two.

Brady and Belichick will hang around a few more years, I think, so Luck and the Colts will inevitably get that rematch. Just a matter of time. I was listening to local sports radio this morning and they interviewed Herm Edwards... he was talking about Luck's season and saying, "imagine what he's going to be in another two or three years" after they get him some protection and build a defense. You guys must be psyched, you've got the most important position locked up for a decade-plus!

Super excited about Luck, but super worried about that O line! The kid won't survive that decade if his protection isn't seriously upgraded and soon. The Colts have come up short every time they've attempted to address that issue lately, which worries me more than a little, but I keep trying to remind myself the Grigson is here now and his best days aren't behind him like Polian's were.

Andrew Mason just tweeted: Rahim Moore: "The way we're practicing, man, it's unreal. It's the best I've ever seen. You would have thought it was a game out there today (at practice). A lot of pads popping, a lot of guys making plays."

So PUMPED.

Nope, sorry. You just cannot get a decent QB with a 6th rounder.....it just does not happen.....

 

You can if you feed him defensive playcalls... ;)

I think line play is, more than most positions in football, impacted by coaching. Hopefully for Luck's sake the Colts will get that straightened out! Improving the run game would also help immensely. Doesn't really keep your QB safe when defenses basically ignore the possibility of a run. And Luck will improve in terms of his timing and his internal clock.

 

Lots to look forward to for you guys. And it was only one painful "bridge year!"

Manning on a win streak vs. Ravens, but there’s a weird anomaly in the matchup

 

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has a nine-game winning streak against the Baltimore Ravens. It dates back to his fifth year in the NFL with Indianapolis.

 

But he did NOT throw for 300 yards in any of the victories.

 

He did, however, throw for 300 yards in both of his career LOSSES to Baltimore.

 

The rundown:  article details stats of all peyton games Vs Ravens

 

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/2013/01/08/peyton-manning-win-streak-ravens-weird-anomaly-matchup/18028/

 

Holliday Healing, Practicing Ball Security

 

Wide receiver Trindon Holliday used the playoff bye week to heal an injured ankle, and is using this week of practice to make sure ball security isn’t an issue on Saturday.

 

The return specialist missed the team’s regular-season finale and did not take part in any parts of practices that were available to the media last week. He participated in the early portion of practice on Tuesday.

 

Head Coach John Fox will provide the team’s first official injury report of the playoffs following Wednesday’s practice.

Broncos Mailbag: Peyton Manning, Denver should be concerned vs. Ravens

Q & A 

 

Mike, I see a few notable concerns for the Broncos as they head into the game against Baltimore. Do you feel the injuries to Ryan Clady and Chris Kuper, the return of Ray Lewis (and other key Raven personnel), along with potentially adverse weather conditions make this match-up more difficult than we Broncos fans are willing to admit?

--Laton, Bismarck, N.D.

 

It's a difficult matchup, but not because of injuries to Kuper and Clady. They're healthy, ready to play. I believe the Ravens are capable of winning it all. Capable of beating the Broncos. Capable of beating the Patriots. Capable of winning the Super Bowl.

 

They are playoff-tested. They've won playoff games in cold weather, and it's going to be 20 degrees for the game Saturday.

 

If Joe Flacco clicks, watch out.

 

 

The problem the Ravens are going to have, though, is playing just six days after they beat Indianapolis. And that's a short week after the Colts ran 87 plays. After 10 weeks off because of a torn triceps, Lewis' 37-year-old body has to be some kind of sore this week. And they're coming here to altitude.

 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has talked about altitude this week. He's coming in at the latest possible time -- Thursday night -- in hopes of minimizing altitude's affects.

 

I see the Ravens giving the Broncos all they want in the first half. The Broncos should be the better team in the second half. We'll see how it adds up.

honestly Peyton was loyal, did everything for us fans...why are so many colts fan turning against him? is not his fault that mediots are talking crap about irsay for not picking up peyton and is not his fault all the media about it...i swear i just dont get why so many colts fan all of the sudden dont care about someone who represented so classy our organization and kind of turn against him...i have heard in the last 5 months more about he cant win on the playoffs and is a choker than i did the last 7 years.

 

im a colts fan but im also loyal to the guy who made this team relevant...why turn the back on him and honestly feel so much disdain towards 18?

I'm with you. He did nothing to disrespect the organization. He said he wanted to come back. The bottom line is the organiztion decided to rebuild and didn't need his big contract hanging over their heads. The way they ended it, I truly believe that he and Irsay discussed what would be best for the Colts and what would be best for Peyton and both came to the same conclusion amicably.

 

If fans want to be mad at someone for the momumental collapse last season which precpitated the departure of Peyton Manning, then get mad at the Polians and Jim Caldwell. They didn't have a plan in place that would make the team competitive without their star QB. For those people that are mad at Peyton for being selfish... let's be realisitic for a second...Irsay wanted the next big thing (Luck) and wanted to rebuild from the ground up pretty much. That was not going to happen with Peyton in Indy. They both knew it and decided to part ways. Once a new Front Office and coaching staff was in place, Peyton's departure was a foregone conclusion.

 I agree, although I really don't see very many 'anti-Manning' posters on here. Silent Hill made his views clear, and gave a very detailed explanation, which is his choice. Are we not just over-playing this anti-18 stuff a little?

maybe i am, and i ddint meant to single Silent and to be honest this is the first post i have read of him re peyton (maybe i have read others but dont remember if he posted them)...but overall i have read so many posts and threads about something unrelated to peyton and somehow peyton manages to squeak into the conversation and see a lot of "chokes" "cold" etc stuff on those posts

Yep, I understand, although he has 'choked' in games before. As has Tom and every other QB that has ever played at a high enough level where 'choking' is witnessed, recognised and reported on!

 

Maybe some are getting just a little too sensitive about it all. If he rocks on and lifts the Lombardi, you will see less and less of those comments....you know what people say...there is only one way to silence your critics!

 

My only caveat about him winning it again is the possible 'told you we should never have let him go' mess this place will turn into.

That is a result of a handful of posters choosing to believe what they want to believe about Peyton. Those were either on the fence or inclined to get back at the "incessant Broncolt fans", so they saw a chance and took it, and ran with it. They could care less of the authenticity of the sources. All of us here have opinions anyway, so as long as it is clearly stated as opinions, and one is honest about it, I have no issues with it.

 

Just dont state it like a fact and base your opinion on a supposed fact that in fact was an opinion :). (now I need to go clear my head to understand what I just wrote, LOL :))

I can guarantee you that it wont happen with me. I personally have stated that even if Peyton wins the SB, Irsay still made the right decision. The decision was for the franchise and the right one. However, I cant speak for the others.

I don't think that will happen. Luck seems to have proven his worth already whereas Manning still has some unfinished business (Lombardi). The Broncos didn't sign Manning to have amazing regular seasons. They signed him to win championships. That team is very good.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and how they personally feel on this or any other subject. I think it's safe to say, I've always been honest and upfront on my feelings and my loyalty and desire to see Peyton succeed. I vow to do the best I can from now on, to be respectful to those that may feel differently, and I just want the same consideration in return. It's been a GREAT football season.

agree they signed him in hope of   winning  Superbowl ( also to teach team his work ethic and improve receivers I once read * after the draft to teach new QB for future  )  thats why i wish instead of  QB  Brock O. , as they said they were in a win now mode , for the second pick of draft u take a player that can contribute now, not one that hopefully will be next QB , I have said this often

In all honesty, I am stunned & amazed that Peyton Manning & this squad gelled so quickly. It's a testament to this entire organization's leadership, Manning's work ethic, John Elway & Pat Bowlen's decision making, & Jack Del Rio's defense.

Defense wins championships IMO. I have always believed that. Yes, Yoda is incredible, but at some point in the Playoffs the defense must stop the 3rd down conversion or create a pivotal turnover. I gotta give Jack Del Rio some HUGE respect & admiration this season. Thank you Jack! :thmup:

Stop Ravens WR Anquan Boldin...Priority #1 IMO. Yes, RB Ray Rice is dangerous, but Bolden is Flacco's security blanket.

Boldin is important for big pass plays, Rice together with now used rookie pierce is a great combo & will help as compliment  each other bringing differnt skills to play   and can spell one another at high elevation so dont tire

 

what flacco shows up is important, Vs Colts he had a 125 rating

I'm glad to see RB McGahee practicing again. We will need him next week against the Patriots. Yes I know, I am jumping the gun a little bit, but come that the match up everyone wants to see anyway right? 

Difficult to Duplicate

 

“It’s definitely a challenge beating a team twice,” cornerback Chris Harrisicon-article-link.gif said. “This team that we have, we’re pretty good, solid, overall pretty balanced. We know if we go out there and play our game, try to eliminate the turnovers and force turnovers, we think we should be fine.”

 

After defeating Baltimore 34-17 in Week 15, the team’s main priority is to duplicate the effort it produced in December. Because Denver got the outcome it was looking for, it’s possible that the Ravens will make plenty of game-plan changes, as they will be looking to turn the tables. With that in mind, Wolfe doesn’t expect to see many of the same looks he saw in December.

 

“It’s extremely difficult, because they are the ones to make the changes,” Wolfe said. “What changes do we make? What we did last time worked. We just have to adjust to what they do when the game starts.”

 

In addition to the changes the Ravens will likely incorporate into their game plan, the Broncos will be facing a team determined not to lose to the same opponent twice, which means they will need to be at their best in preparation for Saturday.

 

“It’s all difficult,” Head Coach John Fox said. “It’s not easy. You’ve got a lot of competitive people. It’s a competitive business. Beating anybody once is hard, so we’ll just focus on what it’s going to take for us to play well."

Broncos’ full-pad workout “high intensity,” safety Rahim Moore said

 

teams don’t often practice in full pads late in the season, but Broncos players said there was a lot of hitting going on Tuesday in preparation for Saturday’s division-round playoff game against visiting Baltimore.

 

“We’re jelling,” Broncos safety Rahim Moore said Tuesday. “We know what’s at stake every day. We’re practicing, man, the best I’ve ever seen.

FROM RAVENS WEB SITE

APPARENTLY TRYING TO USE AS MORE  RAVEN FUEL


Denver Columnist Takes Shot At Lewis, Ravens

 

Checkout out Photo  if  edited out , I cant resize it

 

09_LFW_Lewis_news.jpg

there is a dunkin donuts add sticking to sign too

 

Like many others out there, a Denver Post columnist appears very confident the Broncos will take down the Ravens Saturday.

But the lead paragraph to introduce his opinion took what seems like a disrespectful shot at future Hall of FamerRay Lewisicon-article-link.gif and the city of Baltimore.

 

“If this rust belt town needed a bib to catch all the sentimental tears shed at the last home game of iconic linebacker Ray Lewis, how is Baltimore going to handle the emotional breakdown when the Broncos force him into retirement as a loser?” asked Mark Kiszla.

 

“Whoa,” was the response from CSNBaltimore.com’s Ray Frager.

 

Kiszla continued a few paragraphs later,: “[L]ike Lewis, their very passionate but washed-up warrior, the Ravens now seem better at striking a pose than striking fear in the hearts of a foe.”

 

The columnist was unimpressed with Baltimore’s win over quarterback Andrew Luck, saying “big deal” that the defense “toyed” with a rookie. Would the “Ravens’ arms are long enough to box” Peyton Manning?

 

“Last time we looked in on Manning against Baltimore, the result was so ugly that the Ravens should have covered their eyes,” Ksizla wrote.

 

If there’s enough room on the bulletin board, tack this one up.

Three-Step Plan To Offsetting Denver Pass Rush

Full pad workout, huh? Sounds like what Caldwell did prior to the Ravens divisional round game in 2009 that broke Peyton's 0-3 record of divisional round games after a bye.

I dont remember that to be honest but as I know your writings I do believe what u said

 

I hope it proves false this time,. though if remember right u want Broncos to lose,

After the Colts, I have made it clear I want Peyton to win!!! Where have you been, man? :)

 

Besides, practicing in full pads, I felt, gave the Colts the edge to beat the Ravens 20-3 in the 2009 divisional round playoffs and I did not remember Dungy doing that. 

 

Did you not get what I was talking about? I wasn't talking about the SB we lost to the Saints, just the divisional round vs Ravens.
