Patriots fan here.
The Broncos D was amazing, but fuck this Peypey meme. The team would have been better with Brock Osweiler.
He just played his last game. Show him at least some respect. I will admit it was frustrating to watch them run the ball on third and long almost every play, but he still won and I'm happy for him. He's a very respectable person and had an amazing career.
Manning threw so many balls that had no zip on them. His receivers were open and the ball never got there or he sailed it high. Even fucking Alex Smith would have put up 40 points in that game.
Literally any QB hasn't done this in his career, ya turkey.
I don't give a fuck about >muh career
He played like shit this season. The team would have been better with Brock. Just because he has pretty stats from 10 years ago doesn't mean he didn't play like shit.
>pretty stats from 10 years ago
He was in the pro bowl for the past two seasons and set league records in basically everything in 2013 and is without a doubt one of the greatest players in the history of the game. So yes, he's going to get more attention than Trent Dilfer did.
I already said I don't give a fuck about his career. Quit posting useless stats. He played like absolutely dog shit this season. Our point is that Brock would have made the team better and that you could have put Ryan Fucking Leaf under center and they still would have won that game.
Not really though. We'll all forget then five years from now they'll give him a jacket and then we'll all forget again.
Reminiscing in the past is nice but the NFL is a "what have you done for me lately?" type of league.
And as I said. This thread isn't about his past. It's about now you dumbass.
>Not really though. We'll all forget then five years from now they'll give him a jacket and then we'll all forget again.
Right. Because nobody ever talks about the Steel Curatin, Joe Cool, or the 85 Bears. Nope. Nobody will ever remember them.
This thread is about you complaining that the NFL wants to recognize that one of the greatest players in history is retiring. And by the way, what Peyton has done for them lately is been proficient enough to score enough points to win ballgames, unlike Brock Osweiler, who threw like four picks against the fucking Chargers of all people and almost cost them a #1 seed until he was relieved by, guess who? Peyton Manning.
I really don't understand why you feel the need to defend the endorsement man so much. He spent this season riding on a defense and a running game. It seriously didn't matter who it was that took the snaps they still would have won.
It has nothing to do with "recognizing peyton manning." We all just think Brock would have done better, simple as that.
Go jack off to pictures of Peyton or something.
> We all just think Brock would have done better, simple as that.
Well, the coaching staff didn't. And, surprising though it may seem, the coaching staff is not inclined to bench one of the all time greats because some jerkoff on the internet is tired of peypey memes.
I'm not tired of "Peypey memes" nor am I a jerkoff. I have a valid opinion that has plenty of evidence to back it.
He played like shit. He was what? Second in interceptions in the regular season after playing less than half the season? That's hilarious. He was useless and almost lost this game. They literally stopped passing the ball at one point because they were afraid he would drop the ball or throw a pick.
And yet he relieved Brock Osweiler in the last game of the regular season and won the last game of the season, guaranteeing them a #1 seed, which may have been decisive given how close the AFCCG was. And then, despite your "plenty of evidence" the coaching staff decided to leave him in as the starter despite him "play[ing] like shit," for what I'm sure are entirely sentimental peypey meme related reasons, and all it got them was this lousy Super Bowl championship. Fuck you, Peyton.
How you are really upset about this. How many Peyton Manning fatheads do you have in your room? He played like utter dogshit this year. I don't see why you're so riled up about someone pointing that out. Manning physically can't play the game anymore. He trips over himself at least once a game, just drops the ball from time to time, can't put any heat on his passes anymore. He's done man. Get over it. Mannings play had NOTHING to do with the outcome of the super bowl. The defense score more points than he did. CJ Anderson was on a rampage all game. Manning literally just sat and watched.
I'm not taking exception to the fact that Peyton Manning's career is over. I'm taking exception to your ridiculous assertion that "Literally any QB" could have done what Peyton Manning did. Do you even remember the last game of the regular season. When Brock Osweiler stunk it up versus a then 4-11 Chargers team, was subsequently benched in favor of a quarterback who "physically can't play the game anymore... trips over himself at least once a game, just drops the ball from time to time, can't put any heat on his passes anymore." Remember how the Broncos immediately got their offense back, marched down the field for a TD, and went on to win the game?
Now explain this to me. If the Broncos can't win against the fucking Chargers, The CHARGERS, win Brock Osweiler under center and the exact. same. defense, how do they beat the Steelers, Patriots, or Panthers?
Sorry man, you can type out as many novels as you want but Manning gave up the ball twice, almost three times in this game and had less than 100 passing yards. You could have put ANYONE under center and still win this game.
Well I say that they couldn't have. I say that Peyton Manning is LITERALLY the only person in the world who could have won that game. And my completely unfounded assertion carries as much weight as yours does, since nobody else started that game and nobody else won that game.
>this much denial
You really are a dumb piece of shit aren't you?
As I said before, go jack off to some picture of Peyton Manning. Maybe you could play with your ass a little and pretend it's Eli joining in.
It's not just that I have confidence. It is so obvious how terribly he played this season your denial honestly makes me sad. I didn't realize how much a person can live in denial of the truth. Manning was terrible this season and so many other QB's would have played better than him in this game.
>Foxboro reportin' in.
Not mad in the slightest. I've been a New England fan for around 15 years now, but I've held nothing but respect for Peyton Manning. Losing one to Peyton is no big deal. However, fuck those Broncos fans. Almost as bad as Jets fans.
I never said other QBs couldn't have played as well or better than a 39-year old QB who can't turn his head. I was challenging your dumbass assertion that he's worthless and the team would have been soooooooooo much better off with Brock Osweiler. Peyton played the role of Trent Dilfer this Super Bowl, but he did his part and they won. Osweiler played well, but was carried by the same excellent defense and nearly cost the team the number one seed in the last game of the regular season until terrible washed up Peyton came in and won the game for them, then did his job in the postseason, including 2 TDs and no INTs against the Pats. He's not the player that he once was, but to say he's worthless is just asinine.
Are you fucking kidding me? Every time Brett Favre leaves his fucking tree stand ESPN does a story on it.
Peyton was maybe the most marketable player in NFL history, they will never stop talking about him.
>calling a qb the goat
>qb isn't John Elway
favre should have had two rings. the only reason the broncos beat them is because they cheated the salary cap to stack their roster. i wouldn't be surprised if they are doing the same thing now
top kek, the broncos salary cap "scandal" is one of the most overblown myths in the history of the nfl. The broncos accountants, not even the gm, coach, or president worked out an agreement with Elway, and Davis and one unnamed player, to defer payments of their salary and pay interest on it in order to help the team cope with the front end of their new stadium that was in the initial planning stages at the time. The issue is that the accountants didn't report it. The entire scandal is that of bureaucratic bullshit, the deferments didn't allow them to sign new players since the gm didn't even know there was any other money floating around, the report itself says the broncos did not receive a competitive advantage, but it was still a rule violation and thus they had to be punished.
>defer payments of their salary and pay interest on it in order to help the team cope with the front end of their new stadium
this sounds like cheating in a game that has salary caps
>The issue is that the accountants didn't report it
oh, and they even tried to hide it
Are you stupid? I am not the guy you are arguing with but the Panthers D was almost as lights out as the Broncos. If Brock was in the game, Luke would have had a pick 6 and/or a fumble 6 and the game would be totally different. Peyton made mistakes against the #2 D in the league but he did not throw a pick 6 nor did he play so badly that they lost.
It's that people act as though the broncos were using that deferred money to sign a lot of talent when that's patently wrong. If the accountants hadn't deferred the payments the broncos would have been under the cap those seasons, and if the accountants had reported it there wouldn't have been a problem.
If the broncos weren't in the process of building a new stadium literally nothing would have happened.
this tbqh fampai. He started to fall the fuck off towards the end of the season and Peyton for a little bit played good towards the playoffs.
What happened happened. Despite doing jack shit. He can go out and say he got his 2nd ring doing nothing but throwing a 2 point conversion. Im sure m-muh veteran presence will be mentioned.
Just happy he can go out and say he aint a one and done. Thank you based Miller
