    How does Papa John's fare compared to all the other major pizza chains? I literally haven't had a PJ pizza since the 90's just because it's kind of out of the way and when I did go there I got the cheese sticks.

    This Broncos offense has turned almost entirely into short screen passes and a bunch of dink and dunk throws. D. Thomas and Eric Decker are both deep threats, but you rarely see Peyt air it out to them. Can you imagine if D. Thomas played with mid 2000's Manning? He'd be catching long bombs all game.

    Welker and the emergence of J. Thomas have been perfect for the reduced arm strength of Manning.

    It's amazing how Manning continues to play at such an elite level, and that's a testament to how his mind gets sharper every season. But his arm really is a shell of what it used to be. That makes his sustained level of excellence all the more impressive.

    I don't know if its his arm as much as it is his ankle he's using his core to step into his throws he can't do it so much hence the dink and dunk but those guys get separation so his dink/dunks aren't nearly as suspect as it would be with other QBs

    Don't think so it's because of his bum ankle and not out of scheme. I mean sure his ankle may limit him a bit but we have seen Thomas especially from last season as the receiver of a lot of screen passes that end up TD's. Thomas is a beast of a player and great at gaining YAC. Very good blocking also helps of course.

    Have also read some saying those throws will not be effective in the playoffs as teams will come prepared. We'll see I guess but remember every defense in the league knew what was coming from the Colts and Peyton but they didn't have a lot of success stopping it. Execution was too good for them.

    He now has 41 touchdowns on the season. He has four games to throw 10 touchdowns and beat Brady's single season record of 50. After his performance yesterday, it seems almost certain that he'll get it.

    It doesn't get much more favorable than that. I'd be pretty shocked if he threw less than 10 touchdowns in those four games.

    A sly way of getting an autograph although he's going to regret this because now he'll be flooded with wedding invitations and has to respond to all of them.

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...pnapi_internal

    Peyton Manning responds to invite

    Peyton Manning took the time to respond to Anna Bozard's wedding invite, surprising the longtime fan of the QB.
    Anna Bozard has been a Peyton Manning fan all her life, so when it came time for her wedding, there was never any doubt she was inviting him.

    The question: Would he even respond?

    On Monday, five weeks after the card was due and three weeks after the wedding, a written response from the Denver Broncos quarterback was picked up by Bozard's mother in the mailbox at her Virginia home.

    Manning filled out the RSVP card, checking the box that said he'd have to "regretfully decline." But he added "Best wishes" and signed his name, along with his No. 18.

    "I always loved watching him and admired the wonderful person that he was," Bozard said. "Getting the response totally sealed my thoughts about him. He's a good-natured and good-hearted person."

    Bozard said she sent the card to Manning using the address for the stadium on the Broncos' website. She said she thought there'd be a 25 percent chance she'd get at least something back.

    "I'm so excited he took the time to do what he did," Bozard said. "I'm going to put it in a nice frame."

    7 different quarterbacks have thrown more than 42 touchdowns in a season, 12 times in total.


    Number of NFL Championships won in all 12 of those seasons combined?

    Zero.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Of course not a team dependent on a QB like that is destined to fail. Regardless there's a first time for everything.

    But yeah I rather Manning not get that stupid TD record. I mean with the way the NFL is today these records aren't as vaunted as they once were.

    Please please please please throw 4 TD's tonight with at least 1 of them going to Decker, preferably 2.

    I just want them to win whatever keeps the Chargers out of the playoffs in the off chance we see them in the postseason...

    It's not getting quite as much attention as the TD's but Peyton is also slightly ahead of pace to break Brees season passing yards record. If he gets his season average over the final 3 games, he'll finish at 5,566 yards passing.

    Not a huge Colts fan, but love Peyton. I cannot help but marvel at the numbers he could have had if he had played all those years in Denver.

    The Chargers are just a completely maddening team. There are teams out there that no matter the personnel on either team and how their seasons have gone to that point, the Chargers just have that teams number year after year after year.

    Why would his numbers have been better in Denver? With the Colts he played mostly indoors to with two great WRs in Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne.

    The Broncos? I don't think so they were swept by them last year.

    Unfortunately now New England has Home Field Advantage not that the Broncos would've done anything with it.

    Not the Broncos specifically, but the Chargers certainly have Peyton's number.

    When he was with the Colts? Yes

    I think he plays better against them on the Broncos though. He was due to lose to a division foe at some point I figured it would be on the road.

    Plus the Chargers seem to show up in December for some reason I figured it was going to happen.

    Not like Home Field Advantage did any favors for the Broncos last year.


    Did find it ironic that both matchups had the same score of 28-20

    I don't think he'll break the record which is a good thing actually.

    Of course if he were to do so it would be fitting to do it in Houston(but Wade Phillips defenses have always gotten to him too)
