    Right now I'm not really sure. I think I'll probably be pulling for Peyton and the Bronco's because I just hate the Steelers so much, but at this point I don't have a good feeling for who will be a bigger threat down the road.

    Broncos, because I reckon both teams are going to be subpar this year.

    Broncos will be a 7-9 team

    Pittsburgh will be an 8-8 team

    So......don't care,neither team is a threat in 2012

    Broncos, because I have more respect for the forehead than the head-hunter.


    You guess who the head hunter is.

    It's rapistburger who I can't stand. If James Harrison was on our team we would be just like the Steelers fans saying Goodell has it out for him, when people *****ed about Rodney we defended him. I do think Harrison (James) is an idiot for drawing attention to himself, but he is just a football player......

    Yes......we are not looking at the Peyton of old...this is a guy who is a year away from the game and with a whole bunch of guys he has never played with.......Demarius Thomas is not Reggie Wayne.

    Peyton is a great QB,but being with his team so long and away from the game tells me that he will not be anywhere near what he was,he is also not playing in a dome at least 8 times this year as well.

    I saw how out of place superstar QBs like Joe Montana looked when he went to KC and Peyton might be the same.

    If Peyton throws for more than 27 TDs and has more than 3,500 yards passing,I will be impressed...and surprised.

    I expect a disappointed fan base in Denver when the year has ended.

    There is no way that I can root for either team, I mean, actually "root." I really do not care who wins. I just can not stand either Peyton Manning or Big Ben so the only thing I will be hoping for is that they both suck.

    OK, but we're not talking Peyton 2012 vs. Peyton 2006, we're talking Peyton 2012 vs Tebow 2011.

    fwiw I don't doubt that Bronco's fans have over inflated expectations, but I don't think they will be horrible either.

    I respect Peyton, and have grown to not hate him. Hell if he and TB12 can be friends, why should I hate him? Ben on the other hand.......

    I am not comparing Tebow with Manning because it obviously is a huge mismatch...but I do believe that Tebow fit well with Denver despite not being QB quality,he had those guys believing they can win and he did well with limited success at QB.....I just dont think Peyton is going to be a good fit in Denver.

    Call it a hunch,I just think Elway won't be showing those Donkey teeth smiles too often in 2012

    Damn! Good question. I dislike both teams. I will be rooting for the Donks in this game. Tough to root for Peyton but impossible to root for Pittsburgh.

    The Broncos because I actually respect Manning, and I simply loathe the Steelers and some of their player (looking at Harrison and Clark in particular).

    Saints - cant wait to see the Goodell stuff in the stands :) They may not air it though we got a new character Darth Saint to defend us from the NFL,lol
    We might have negatives, but we are colorful.

    Pats - I can see this being a tough game. Im worried about the pats run defense. The killer of most high powered spread offenses. No clock no points.
    Its what SF49er did to us. Our offense can cream even that #1 defense, but not any good if the defense can't stop their run, and our offense is not on the field.
    If Pats cant stop Johnson and stevens its going to be a long day I think.

    I don't think they are going to win the superbowl, but if you take a team that won it's division last year with Tim Tebow at QB and replace him with arguably one of the best QBs of all time, they must be a contender, no?
