  • Peyton Manning returning to the field in 2015 is highly unlikely

    Mile High Report ^ | 19 Nov, 2015 | Tim Lynch
    It is starting to look like Peyton Manning may never step onto the field as a starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos again. Personally, I was on the fence with this line of thinking holding out hope Manning would somehow erase the last year and return to form. However, by moving to Brock Osweiler, it's becoming clear that coming back to Manning isn't likely. An excellent insider piece on ESPN written by Mike Sando hammered this point home with several interviews from NFL executives and evaluators around the league, which paints a portrait of where John Elway's mindset is during...

    The Indianapolis Colts, already reeling with injury and performing below expectations, received even more terrible injury news on Tuesday: quarterback Andrew Luck suffered abdominal injury in the team's victory over Denver. Luck is expected to miss two to six weeks. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano announced the injury on Tuesday afternoon, saying Luck suffered a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle on a fourth-quarter scramble. This is in addition to the report from earlier this season that Luck had been playing with multiple fractured ribs. The Colts are in a bye week this week, then face the Falcons,...

    The 2-6 San Francisco 49ers are benching quarterback Colin Kaepernick and starting Blaine Gabbert this weekend against the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday. Niners head coach Jim Tomsula said earlier on Monday that he was "evaluating everything." Later in the day, Schefter reported that San Francisco had traded veteran tight end Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos for a 2016 7th-round draft pick and 6th round picks in 2016 and 2017. Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship Game in 2013, is having the worst season of his career. He's thrown...

Five days later, the Broncos play the Kansas City Chiefs in Denver. "These men and women were not violent criminals, but the overwhelming majority had been sentenced to at least 20 years; 14 of them had been sentenced to life for nonviolent drug offences, so their punishments didn't fit the crime," Obama said in a video on the White House Facebook page, via The New York Times.

    According to Jay Feely, Tim Tebow is a great man and a great competitor, but Feely still believes Tebow is the “worst quarterback” ever. But do Tebow’s stats agree with that assessment? In a related report by the Inquisitr, in the past some have claimed that Tebow was “blackballed” from the NFL due to Christian beliefs, not NFL stats. At the same time, Joe Theismann insists Tim “can’t throw the football” and referee Jim Daopoulus once used Tebow as an example of the uncatchable rule. Rush Limbaugh might agree that more men like Tebow are needed in the NFL, but...

But the left-handed college football analyst could show up at the next one after extensive training with Tom Brady's quarterback coach. Per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Tebow's been working with Tom House in Los Angeles for the past two years. House told Volin Tebow's improved greatly. "He went from being a little inaccurate and didn't throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball," House said.

Manning purchased 21 Papa John's locations statewide shortly before voters passed Colorado Amendment 64 in late 2012, and he's been raking in the money ever since.

Simply put, the league's top offense (Denver) will face the league's top defense (Seattle). Something has to give.

The Jets dealt a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver to get Tebow in March 2012, and then proceeded to use him in no discernibly logical fashion whatsoever.

Funny thing about that. Tripucka was apparently the best option the team had at quarterback. Thus, though he hadn't played in the NFL since 1952, he took over the starting spot and proceeded to throw for a career- and league-high 3,038 yards that season. Tripucka -- who died Thursday morning at the age of 85 -- started for two more seasons (and led the...

In what is arguably the most religiously tolerant society in human history, how is it that, in the modern age, the religious expression of an athlete is the brunt of jokes and the target of mockery? Why dont we denounce that for the bigotry it is? Because our tolerance is in name only. And it is unevenly applied. In America, intolerance of the minority is rejected, but intolerance of the majority is expected. Tim Tebow is mocked not because he is religious, but because he is Christian. Were he...

Forget the stats; ignore the hype. Good defense beats good offense as surely as good pitching beats good hitting. The 49ers have great defense; the Saints, great offense. The same principle applies. San Francisco's special teams are a game changer. The 49ers can score by reaching the other team's 40 yard line because the field goal kicker is long-distance machine.

    Its the second round of the playoffs and Tim Tebow is still winning. Hes just not doing it all alone, at least thats what America believes. But America must not be watching his defense, coaching, running game or blocking. Theyre convinced theres a greater power assisting the devoutly Christian quarterback. According to a survey done by Poll Position, 43 percent of the general public think some of Tebows success can be attributed to divine intervention. In other words, God is helping Tebow win games. The Broncos upset Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday afternoon in a wild-card playoff game....

    FALLON AS T BOWIE If this were about Mohammed, there would be car bombs and heads coming off. Fallon would have to go in hiding like Salman Rushdie. As a Catholic, I am not threatened and can see the humor. It may well be profane. Maybe Fallon will have to answer someday.

    I have officially called off my boycott of the National Football League. I do not care how many felons or frotteurs play the game. Now there is Tim Tebow to redeem it. He can pass and run. He inspires his teammates. He inspires many returning fans like me. I shall follow him through the playoffs and maybe even next year as the season resumes anew. He is an American original -- and he is controversial. I am for him. No, I shall not fall for the NFL's gimmicks. You will not see me wearing a jersey of the Denver Broncos,...

    In his first 2011 start as the Denver Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow was in the glare of the national spotlight. During pregame activities before playing the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 23, though, Tebow focused not only on the football game ahead but also on 16-year-old Garrett Atwood. Garrett, a Winter Springs youth who has been treated for a life-threatening illness in Jacksonville, spent time with his hero, thanks to Tebows desire to help children and families, especially those in crisis. I know there are more important things than winning a game; like Garrett hes more important. Putting a smile...

    I grew up in Denver and am admittedly biased. Im a Denver Broncos fanatic. In the Mile High City, the Broncos are more than just a football team; theyre an institution. Everybody loves a comeback. Former Broncos quarterback John Elway one of the greatest QBs in NFL history had comebacks in his DNA. Since he retired in 1999 after back-to-back Super Bowl wins, Denver fans have been jonesing for that regular shot of adrenaline Elway provided week in, week out. Enter Tim Tebow. In the category of, Holy cow, can he actually do it? no Broncos QB since...
