Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

This game has turned into a video game. what seems like every year now, might see a whole bunch of passing records broken again this year.

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

I guess this was a big FU from Manning to all the people that had Seattle #1 in their power rankings.

agreed. brees, manning brady are amazing qbs but 50 plus tds for brady, 5k for brees? the game is changing. im just glad the skins seem to finally be game planning and playing modern nfl football and not the control the ball with 3 yard runs and a cloud of dust approach.

Calm down dude. Peyton is the man. Go to bed angry, DVR the game, wake up and feel like Christmas morning. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. You can even wear your Manning jersey.

Just know week 8 is going to be a battle.

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

That was a hell of a statement game last night. I dont know what to think of Baltimore, but their Oline got pushed around pretty bad last night by a bronco defense without their key guys. And their secondary sux

Right when Oher got knocked out that entire OLine pretty much fell apart. Their secondary, much like the Skins secondary needs time to gel. Without a pass rush both secondaries will look awful.

Shameless self promotion. It was on NBC and they are obviously going to promote their own programming. Wouldn't matter if it was Jets vs. Raiders, they would have been shoving down our throats every commercial break.

I'll go out and say that Harbaugh got out coached. But not by Fox. Manning out coached him on the field.

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

That was a amazing way to open the season last night. Such a treat watching Peyton play, and to tie history with 7 TDs was just icing on the cake.

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

Ravens just got outplayed. They simply could not cover or tackle. Also have to question the Ravens throwing so many passes. Gotta give Rice and Pierce more carries.

Did anyone notice that Manning just doesn't have a lot of zip on his passes? Obviously he played a ridiculous game and was pin point accurate, but that might be a factor when the weather changes.

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

denver is loaded but also Baltimore just isn't as good obviously. I'd still say Denver will end up around 13-3

Re: Around the NFL-Week 1

Manning is one of the greatest to ever play. Sucks that his career is probably ending within the next couple of years.

I thought the list of QBs that threw 7td's a game was interesting because there wasn't anyone that automatically stood out. I actually had to look up a couple of them because I had never heard their names.

Broncos offense this year might be one of the best offenses ever if their Oline can keep it together and provide a run game.

He never had a fantastic arm, it is all about anticipation with him and obviously reading the defense and probably being the smartest quarterback outside of Unitas to ever play.

I think the Ravens wanted to run the ball more and they did in the first half but then the Broncos broke the game wide open forcing the Ravens to pass a lot more than they felt comfortable doing.

I also never remember the Ravens getting blown out like that.
