  • One term I hate...

    I hate it when people refer to us as the "Denver Manning's."

    It is totally insulting to everyone else that is here. We had a really good nucleus of players and we finally added an adequate engine to make it go.

    I guess. I just think it's kind of funny as it simply refers to the media attention surrounding Peyton. If the other guys want recognition they have to step up and deserve it. The defense did so by the end of last season and Von Miller did so by winning DROY. As the season goes on, expect that name to slowly slip away as the rest of the Broncos (hopefully) prove themselves worthy of playing with Manning.

      Yeah I don't really like it much either but it doesn't bother me too bad.


      Btw it happens a lot less than it did with the previous QB who must not be named.

          I also noticed the Broncos (team) is only mentioned in passing on most broadcasts.

          There was a time we couldn't buy a mention on NFLN or any of the other networks, take what they give you. You might consider how Dolphin fans are feeling right about now

                  SI uses it a lot in the articles they write. I think specifically Don Banks says it.

                  I have also heard a lot of talk radio guys on Sirius say it.

                    It's an adequate nucleus of players with a really good engine.

                      Neither have I. If it was mentioned by a single network, then its not really a trend.

                        All things considered, I can think of worse things.

                        Insults & respect are vastly overrated. At the end of the day, what difference does it make what "they" call us or think of us?

                            Could be worse. Could be calling us the Donkeys.
