These country boys call themselves "Black and Decker"

A wonderful story on DT.


 


These WRs are pretty much all I asked for when we lost to the Saints in the superbowl - some targets that can beat the coverage do not always require Manning to throw 100% accurate. Unfortunately Manning is no longer with Colts, but he has gotten the weapons now. Hope they help him get the trophy he has always deserved.

That's a good point...Manning throws to guys that arent open now..

..He expects them to wall off the defender like a basketball player getting a rebound..

That's big this week agaionst baltimore's corners

In the year Manning was with Colts we just never had receivers that were physically stronger or taller or faster than players who cover them. If very average QBs like Matt Staford and Andy Dalton look elite once they have their tall and fast weapons, I just don't believe Manning couldn't take advantage of the gifts and take them to an even higher level.

Fun read! This passage made me laugh:

 

You might become best friends, too, if you both had to deal with the joy and the hell of playing with a picky perfectionist like Manning every day.

"Our favorite," Decker says, "is when he comes to you on the sideline after you screw up and asks you a question he already knows the answer to. He'll be like, 'Now, on the down and in, are you supposed to cut that up at 5 yards or 7?' And you'll be like, 'Five,' even though you both know you were at 7. And he'll be like, 'Oh, OK. Thanks.'"

People think Manning has done for Decker and Thomas what Madonna did for bras. But they might try looking at it from the other end.

 

I love that they are getting national recognition. They are smart, hard-working youths, and they will only get better.

Both 25....Both 1,000 yards....and Elway seemed to know they could do this....

I think their size might make them effective even in the tough weather Saturday...

D. Thomas made the biggest play of last season....vs. Pitt in the wild card game..the 80-yard pass/run

    • There are a lot of military people who started out being serious gamers. With the technologies the military use it is no joke that those who are good at that type of stuff are wanted. I have a long time friend who's son started out flying military drones and now that he is a civilian he has a job making so much money it's ridiculous. He has his pilot license and works as a trainer in the drone field for a private company.
    • "Cleveland, you're a loser. Now, buy these fabulous Trump steaks banned by the FDA for contamination & emboli. Yum! Yum! Delicious."   Okay, I'll stop here before I get myself into trouble. 
    •   He did such a great job in Indy why would'nt you ..
    • I have always liked Hue Jackson & I want to see him succeed, but ownership will screw this up & tarnish any progress Jackson makes. It's inevitable as we all know.    I thought he did well in Oakland too. I really did. 
    • Wow, this is shocking and really sad.    Cortez Kennedy was a beast. An overlooked player, possibly because the Seattle teams he was on were so god awful. The 1992 Seahawks had one of the worst offenses in NFL history, even to the point of having Mark McGwire's brother at QB. The one decent player they had on offense back in the day was RB Chris Warren who always put up decent numbers.   If any of you played the Tecmo Super Bowl games on SNES, you may know what I'm talking about when I say Kennedy was one of the best pass rushers in those games.    I'm sure old school Seattle fans probably imagine what it would've been like with him on their 2010 era teams with a much better defense.      Happy he made the Hall of Fame but this sure is sad to see him go.
