All Broncos fans and journalists know the importance of Denver signal-caller Peyton Manning’s sojourn into Indianapolis this afternoon as the Broncos seek to keep pace with Cincinnati and perhaps New England, pending the results of their game against Washington, which occurs in the early Sunday window.
Manning, with a win against the struggling and perhaps dysfunctional Colts, will break former Green Bay Packers/New York Jets/Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre’s all-time wins for a quarterback record, at 186. Furthermore, if he passes for 285 yards, he also becomes the NFL’s all-time leading passer so there is lots to watch for.
Additionally, the Colts are 3-5 which ties them for first place in the AFC South with the Houston Texans and reports have surfaced from Colts beat writer Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, among others, that embattled head coach Chuck Pagano (or Pa-Gone-oh as sardonic Colts fans have begun calling him on message boards) is being told what moves to make in regard to who plays and who doesn’t.
As is being discussed on the Broncos’ pregame show on 850-AM and 94.1-FM KOA, the team’s flagship radio station, right now, analyst and former Denver kicker David Treadwell says the fact this kind of thing does not happen at 5,280 feet is reason enough for Broncos fans to rejoice.
In any event, if any Colts fans happen upon this blog, be nice to them. The Broncos’ standard of excellence extends to the fans of the team so show that from the top to the bottom, this franchise is the gold standard.
