Broncos Sign Tracy Porter


Recommended Posts

The man who picked off Manning in the SB is now on the same team as him. Great signing, as Bailey and Goodman are getting old and the only young guy they have there is Rahim Moore. This is a good signing now and down the line.

It was a one year deal supposedly.

Wait.... The Super Bowl... Manning from New Orleans... Tracy went to IU... THIS IS LIKE THE JFK / LINCOLN CONSPIRACY!!!

Plus I read somewhere that Porter has a Glossy Mole.

Better be careful, thats an intelligent play on words requiring the reader to have studied history at some point in their life.

Thank you, I needed a laugh.

Is he expected to the play the nickle? Thats a lot of experience back there. You would expect them to want to play a fast pace, score as much as you can type of game and it will come down to stopping the other team when they HAVE to throw. Remember those days? :)

Because Wayne ran a horrible route and wasn't in position.

Wayne was covered. Manning probably under estimated Porter and didn't think he could get there fast enough.

The timing was off on the play, but he still forced the ball just as Brady forced that pick in this year's Super Bowl.

If Wayne would have run the route at full speed, it's incomplete at worst.Porter got lucky on jumping that route, because there is a "in and up" combo route off the same action.The timing was off on the play because Wayne didn't run it like he normally does... If so, he would have been in front of Porter likely making the catch, or it's incomplete at worst.

Manning should have anticipated the interception I was at a club watching it, anyone could have seen that coming......except Manning sure didnt, it was a great play by Porter but bad decision all around by manning, Porter was basically right their it was an easy pick for him as seen by the wide open 6 points he turned that into

I'm sure he did anticipate that. If Reggie Wayne would have been in his normal spot it's not an interception, or 6 points.

still it was Mannings fault no matter how you look at it, the ball was in his hands if reggie wasnt where he was supposed to be then Manning should have thrown the ball where Reggie was and not where Porter was, Manning forced it thats where most of his interceptions have happened anyway

Peyton messed up. But, such is life.

We all moved on.......

I think Collie might have been wide open though.

Collie was wide open and Manning stared down his #1 option. Why did you bring up these painful memories?

I wish I skipped over this thread. It took two years to get over that SB and now all of it is coming back. ****ing Hank Baskett getting the football ripped out of his hands on the onside kick. ****ing Garcon ****ing on the third down conversion. ****ing caldwell calling three straight run plays to end the first half

I was quoting someone initially who did bring up the pick!!

That entire second half was a mess though in that SB.

That pick was too easy for Porter looking back. Darn Saints.

I can't believe Peyton and Porter are on the same team now. And this team is the Broncos. My, things are getting odd........

Is he blame free? No. Would I give him the majority of the blame? No, I wouldn't. I feel that Wayne ran a poor route.It's a timing route. Manning throws to a spot. Wayne wasn't at the spot, and by the looks of the early read, he would have been at the spot, and he wasn't. Unbiased view:http://www.dawgsbynature.com/2010/2/19/1302008/rufios-playbook-breaking-downIt's quite clear that Reggie was not in the right spot for whatever reason. Injury, slipping, confusion, whatever the reason he was not where he was supposed to be, and if he was, then the ball is not going in the other direction.http://www.dawgsbynature.com/2010/2/19/1302008/rufios-playbook-breaking-down

I 100% guarantee you that if Tom Brady did that then people here would be blaming Tom Brady and not the receiver in question.

Peyton did mess up a bit there. It happens. It happens to a lot of them at times. Heck that entire second half of the SB was a trainwreck and the pick 6 was like the finishing touch to stick the knife in our hearts.

Moving on.......

Congrats Porter for joining the Broncos!

If Manning had made the Pass where Welker had to go all kung fu gymnast to get his hands on it, Manning would have been ridiculed even more by the Hate all things Manning crowd.There was far more wrong with that Super Bowl than that one pass, and even if we do tie it at that point. Brees is going to walk the dog on the defense to put more points on the board.Rah rah Tracy Porter rah rah.

His wife certainly blamed the receiver.

That was awesome. "What do you expect my husband to do......throw the ball and catch it himself."

lmao

I think I like her more after that. She cracked me up.

    • JB is not my favorite QB. But even I would never compare him to the likes of the guys on that list. He is much more in the Hasselback group.    But I also disagree with putting Grigs on that list as well. He wasn’t a disaster or an embarrassment...he was just a disappointment in the end. A guy who couldn’t evaluate talent nearly as well as he did early in his career. And he was an unlikeable guy (which has always made me wonder how he sold Irsay on giving him the job).    But plenty of GMs fail to get there with a star QB...especially early in that QB’s career. Only one team gets to win the SB each year.    I mean...just look at Polian. He got there eventually...but he was gifted PFM...and didn’t win a playoff game until the 6th season. Grigs had won 3 by his 3rd season...and had just as many playoff appearances (3) as Polian over their first 5 seasons. Polian is a HOFer...but my point is that it’s not easy even when you get a great QB.   And as I have said before...Luck was great and my favorite player of all time...but he wasn’t quite Mahomes or Rodgers good...they are true Ferraris. He made mistakes and also didn’t exactly light it it up in January either. I think his prime would have been something to behold and maybe he would have taken his game to a new level...but injuries unfortunately derailed that (which I think many parties are to blame for...not just Grigs).   The guys on that list brought nothing to this org...Grigs at least managed to oversee a winning roster for years. A 49-31 record (.612 winning %) with a 3-3 playoff record, in 5 years, is far from a disaster. If you want to see what a true disaster looks like...it’s what has happened in HOU...where their FO has wasted a QB who (IMO) might be even better than Luck.   So far, Ballard has been superior in just about every facet. But the results are still the results. We can discount 2017...but without it the Colts are still just 28-20 (a .583 winning %) and 1-2 in the playoffs so far. Yes, he has only had Luck for one of those seasons...but that’s just another way of saying he needed Luck to win more games (to win more playoff games). And that’s the argument I always hear to vilify Grigs...that he only won because of Luck. Seems like a double standard...and not the only one.   I think most Colts fans have become huge fans of the process...and that’s great. It’s might be my favorite part of sports. But there are those that are still results-oriented...and I can understand why some might be asking what does it all without the results? This season will be huge to answering that question. 
    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer. 
    • @Superman   @w87r   So, among many things, I get e-mail from Sports Illustrated every day.   And the other day,  there was this article written by Andew Brandt, who used to handle the contracts and salary cap issues for the Packers for 10 years.    And one thing he wrote jumped off the page at me.     Now, here's why I remind our two resident Salary Cap experts I noted above about something they have both talked about,  but I haven't seen either of them talk about this year.   Roll Over.   According to Brandt,  the Colts have the MOST SALARY CAP ROLLOVER in the NFL.   $30 MIl.    So, whatever the general 2021 team salary cap turns out to be,  you can add $30 Mill for the Colts.     I'm going to do two things.     I'm going to link the entire article for everyone.    It's free, non-premium,   and I'm also going to cut and paste the key section for everyone to read right here.      OK....    here's the article...      And just for discussion purposes,  Brandt uses a projected salary cap of $185.   He's NOT saying that's what the final number will be,  only his own hypothetical number for his article.   https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/03/02/business-of-football-understanding-the-salary-cap-dead-money?suid=5cc1cc3a3f92a475c0234f43&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SI Extra 030221&utm_term=SI Extra - USE THIS - List     Here is the key text:   Myth: Every NFL team’s cap number is going to be $185 million   No. Actually, no team’s cap number is going to be $185 million (or whatever the final cap number is). The 2011 CBA, for the first time, allowed teams to carry over unused cap room from one year to the next. In managing the cap for the Packers, we did not have that option; it was use it or lose it. I had to negotiate * incentives—such as a clause giving our third-string quarterback $20 million if he threw seven touchdowns in our last game—to carry over cap room. (When he didn’t earn the incentive, we would get it as a credit toward the next year.) Now teams don’t have to play those games. As per NFLPA numbers, every team in the league has carried over 2020 cap room, from a low of roughly $500,000 for the Ravens to a high of more than $30 million for the Colts. Teams carrying over $20-plus million of cap include the Jets, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. Thus, although the team cap is $185 million, the Colts’ adjusted cap will be around $215 million, and so on. And again, these teams have been preparing, or should have been preparing, for this reduced cap for months.   What say you both, Superman and w87r?     What do you think of what Brandt has written?    Does everyone have to re-do their off-season mocks reflecting a team figure of $215?     I look forward to hearing from both of you and others!
