Manning has FOUR bona-fide stud receivers to throw the ball around. And whatever you want to say about Manning, nobody makes better decisions than he does in the pocket.
"Arm strength," "cold weather," "playoff choker," yada yada yada. This Denver team reminds me a lot of the '07 Patriots - teams look like they don't even want to be out there. Who beats them?
Anyone from the NFC East?
I'll be surprised if Manning doesn't break every record on the books this year with that supporting cast and this schedule.
If they found a secret note to GMs telling them to make sure Manning wins this year for the sake of the league, it'd make more sense.
Last time I'll say it, and again, I AM A HOMER, "You blew it Kraft and BB...epically."
In the end, the best edge for every (non-Broncos) playoff team is that Manning is the worst choking dog in NFL playoff history
