‘To Those Who Would Call Me a Thug or Worse …’
I threw a choking sign at 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Why? Because he decided he was going to try the guy he was avoiding all game, because, I don’t know, he’s probably not paying attention for the game-winning play. C’mon, you’re better than that…
...The Broncos stand in our way, and it’s a large obstacle. They’ve got the smartest quarterback in football and receivers who are large (mostly), explosive with the football and run great routes. Wes Welker is quick and elusive, Eric Decker is a great receiver with hands and speed, and Demaryius Thomas is as strong as they come. And Peyton knows how to get each of them in spots.
Last week, before the Chargers game, I did my best to explain how merely good quarterbacks make plays, but great quarterbacks exploit matchup advantages. Here, Richard Sherman contrasts Colin Kaepernick and Peyton Manning in exactly that way.
