In case you haven’t heard by now, Manning is finished.

There’s no point to him even being on the field anymore. He’s a hack who has lost his touch. The Broncos might as well put Brock Oweiler in the game.

As I said earlier this week in response to that nonsense, if Manning is awful, there’s another Denver quarterback who must have been even worse.

If the Broncos are going to win their third Super Bowl this season, the running game and defense will lead them there. It’s been proven it can’t and won’t happen if this team relies on Manning to get it done – since this is a team game and all.

What we see each game will depend on the game plan. If offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Fox want to focus on the run game, Denver doesn’t need Manning to sling it for 400 yards.

Other times, they will want to focus on the pass, and Manning will need to do that. We could see that this weekend in San Diego.

The beauty of finally getting this balance is defenses have no clue what to expect. They have to prepare for both.

You don’t think that gives PFM the advantage?
