In an interview with IAOFM Patron Saint Tom Jackson on ESPN's SB pregame show, John Elway said he expects Peyton Manning will "break all of the [NFL's career passing] records."
What might Elway have meant?
Was it just a casual statement or throwaway line? Perhaps.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The waiting is almost over, as we're just hours away from the kickoff of SB 48.
Its potential impact on Peyton Manning's legacy has been discussed ad nauseum, and of course, that will continue beyond tonight, win or lose.
But there's one very tangible and indisputable outcome hanging in the balance - according to Adam Schefter, a Denver victory would mean a $1M bonus for head coach John Fox.
Obviously, that's a chunk of money that the organization would be more than happy to part with.
As had been expected since his seven-touchdown performance on opening night (if not earlier), Peyton Manning was named the NFL's MVP for the fifth time in his storied career.
Manning shattered several single-season NFL records in 2013, including those for touchdown passes and passing yardage.
From that actual game, I think I learned at that time not to chase two-point plays too early in the fourth quarter. So like everything, you live and learn, and that’s probably the biggest thing from a strategy standpoint.
Obviously, the hope here is that Denver doesn't need any two-point conversions to stay in tomorrow's game.
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! With just thirtysomething hours to go before SB 48 kicks off, here are the latest forecasts:
Accuweather predicts a temperature of 44 degrees, mostly cloudy skies, a mild breeze, and a dry evening.
The Weather Channel is still calling for temps in the upper 30s or lower 40s, with a slight chance of a sprinkle or drizzle, and a northwest breeze of around 10 mph.
Weather Underground says low 40s, cloudy skies, and single-digit winds, with no precipitation.
Since it's SB week, Disqus chose to focus on IAOFM and longtime reader/commenter Underdog on their blog today:
Underdog is a big Denver Broncos fan (lucky him, this year!), and spends much of his time sharing his knowledge, and debating others, on It’s All Over Fat Man (the story behind the community’s name is brilliant — you can read more on their site).
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! The forecast for Sunday continues to improve, although not quite to the extent we're being told.
In reality, Weather.com predicts kickoff temperatures in the high 30s or low 40s, with some breeziness and little or no precipitation.
Accuweather calls for an evening temperature of 41 degrees, with an 8% chance of precipitation.
Weather Underground predicts a similiar temperature, but zero chance of rain or snowfall.
Happy Thursday, friends. As you read this, I'll be in San Diego attending a sales and use tax seminar. As I write this Wednesday night, I'm also in San Diego, in a (somewhat disappointing) hotel room, overlooking the bay, and we just got back from a nice dinner in Little Italy.
Guess how many people I saw rocking Chargers gear, in a high foot traffic area, a mere two weeks after their feel-good playoff run ended? I saw exactly one of them, which is par for the course for this town.
I'm not here to talk about weak-ass Chargers fans, though. It's Super Bowl week, and I promised y'all some material. If you'll follow me across the jump, I'm fixing to drop some knowledge on you, as Stuart Scott would say.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The two teams got back down to serious business on Wednesday.
Denver put on the pads to endure a cold and windy practice outdoors, with only DT Sione Fua unavailable, and Matt Prater a full participant after having recovered from last week's illness.
According to Jarrett Bell (first link), teams are only permitted one padded practice for SB week, so that'll be it for the Broncos.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Following the monstrosity that is Media Day, the two teams will get back to actual football preparation on Wednesday.
Matt Prater, who was held out of last week's practices due to illness, says he's feeling a lot better and is ready to go.
