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.

    • They are still in first round interview mode. I'd expect that to continue assuming they want to interview guys still in the playoffs. Keep in mind the Texans had to get special approval to interview Bieniemy when they did, because they failed to interview him on the off week. They can't interview him again till they are done (unless they seek a waiver from the NFL again).   Purely my opinion, but I think it's simple to me.   If Watson stays, Bieniemy will be the HC. Anyone other than Bieniemy is a signal that Watson is gone. That assumes though that there are teams willing to mortgage their future...   
    • TO's stats absolutely warranted first ballot... but he had antics on the field (e.g., the Dallas Star incident, spitting in DeAngelo Hall's face) and was also a cry-baby who was often in conflict with the media and front offices of teams he played on, and thought by many to be a subpar teammate (at least for portions of his career).  He also did other things (e.g., the Desparate Housewives skit before MNF, OD on pain meds) which made him unpopular with the media, who are ultimately who vote players into the HOF.   Marvin also deserved to be a 1st ballot HOFer.  Although he got in before TO, I firmly believe Marv's alleged shooting incidents and the allegations of him punching a younger fan at a pro-bowl game were held against him in voting.  I know it's said that the HOF is for what players did on the field, and off field stuff shouldn't come into play -- but it's voted on by people (i.e., sports writers) and there surely is some sort of human element that goes into the vote casting process.     You're right... Reggie will get in, just a matter of when.  While I do think some of Marv's off-field issues hindered him, there were also guys like Andre Reed (who had been eligible for almost a decade) and Tim Brown who were waiting to get into the HOF... both deserving HOFers who got overlooked previous years as guys like Jerry Rice and Cris Carter got in.   While I think the main knock on Reggie will be that he was WR#2 to Marvin for a decent part of his career, and the fact he wasn't all-decade team and only a 1x First-team All Pro (and 2x 2nd team).  That said, he's one of the most prolific WRs in NFL history and has some of the best post-season stats of any WR in NFL history.  Megatron definitely was a physical freak who changed the game, but his career was not long enough to put him in the record books like Reggie (who is top 10 in just about every category and top 5 in several post-season categories).  The only other WR on the ballot is Torry Holt who is a 2x finalist -- Reggie has more all-pro appearances, 1 less probowl than Holt, though Reggie has more yards, TDs and receptions.  They both have 1 SB ring, with Reggie having greater post-season success with individual stats, and Holt was 2nd team 2000s all-decade which Reggie wasn't.  Holt was also 2nd fiddle to Isaac Bruce for a decent part of his career.   Not making any guarantees, but compared to the WR classes when Marv and TO were finalists (including guys like Reed and Tim Brown who had been on the wait-list for a while) as well as studs across the board (e.g., Jerome Bettis, Derrick Brooks, Michael Strahan, Aeneas Williams, Junior Seau, WIll Shields, Favre, Orlando Pace, etc..).... I think this class is pretty weak.  After Peyton and Woodson, as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I don't see any guy in this class who clearly deserves to be a HOFer more than Reggie does.      He has to retired first and if he keeps taking his Benjamin Button diet, that may not happen.
    • Personally I think the future QB is already on the roster in Eason. To be honest we don't have a clue on his abilities in the NFL. He has all the physical tools. In this offense he wouldn't have to be superman to be successful.  I am pretty sure Ballard will pull some surprises out of his little black book. He seems to do that every season so far. 
    • Or your bling "Love" of him has altered yours... 
    • Thanks for that. I know there is more, not a lot more but there have been blurbs through the season and comments/talk on sirius nfl 88 as well. There was one recently on roto but for the life of me I couldn't find it. I'm not sure if it was removed by roto or not. Don't know why they would but... anyway thanks again
