Just try to ignore the 5-15 concussions he'll get in his lifetime :p

My favourite players to watch are/were Peyton Manning, Barry Sanders and the Tampa Bay defense circa 2002.

Can't wait to watch Peyton every week this year. Just hope he doesn't get hurt. Our O-Line is pretty good though, so hopefully they can keep him up right. He took a big hit against the Niners though when he delivered a nice pass to his right to Lance Ball.

Good news for all NFL fans in the UK, Sky will show 2 games on Sunday, as well as Thursday Night Football, Channel 4 will show Sunday Night Football and the BBC will show Monday Night Football.

Plenty to feast on!

If the Broncos receivers don't drop catches they will score on almost every possession as Manning is that good. Unfortunately he has been held back by droppers and below par defenses, and I can't see the Broncos receivers being good enough.

Eric Decker is pretty good and Damerious Thomas should be solid, his running gam will let him down, but he never had much of a running game in Indy

The Broncos receivers are good. Eric Decker will break out this year. He runs his routes well and has a great footballing brain and hands. Demaryius Thomas is a physical monster, his speed and strength make up for his lack of route running skills. In the slot there is Brandon Stokley (who played with Peyton in Indy) and Andre Caldwell.

Then you add Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen At TE, who can both make plays. Our running game was one of the best in the NFL last year, which will be key to keeping Peyton healthy.

He can't afford to have to throw 40+ passes a game and risk all the hits like he used to be able to. Willis McGahee had 1000yds rushing last year, and with Knowshon Moreno healthy, and Lance Ball, I like our ground game too. But, I am most excited about Ronnie Hillman, who we drafted in the third round. He has had health problems in the off season, but he is lightning, and cuts very well.

I am very optimistic. My only concern is our secondary. Losing Brian Dawkins will be huge, but our D should not have to play as much this year compared to last, when Orton and Tebow were under centre.

We were fantastic last night.

Peyton looked his old self, the receivers got open and caught passes, they did some nice things with the run game.

Slightly concerned about our ability to make stops on third downs, but it was nice to see us having a good corner opposite Champ Bailey, Tracy Porter was fantastic last night.

Well worth not going to bed until nearly 5am, despite being up since 3am the day before!

:cheer:

These fu€kin replacement referees are absolutely terrible, they don't have a clue what theyre doing.

Also Goodell might be the biggest hypocrite on the face of the earth right now, he's truly hateable

The were awful for the Broncos @ Falcons game on MNF. They completely lost control, and players were making the calls.

TBF to Goodell, he's much more likeable than Gary Bettman right about now...

Goodell is the worst commissioner in American sports bar none. He's a hypocrite Gary Bettman is at least trying to fix a broken system

Jennings intercepted. I don't get the call for the TD only one official called it too. The other was waving it off. I don't get it?

Technically the NFL rule is a "simultaneous catch" goes to the offense. That said it wasn't that at all, the refs also missed a block in the back at the beginning of the play and offensive pass interference before Tate jumped when he shove that guy before he jumped.

It's embarrassing, Goodell goes on and on about "protecting the shield", these refs are doing more damage to the product on the field and the integrity of the "shield" than the Saints paying people to injury opponents ever did...he threw the book at them, the league and the refs are about 3 million dollars a year apart it's just silly

I think the NFL should go all the way with this, and bring back former players that have incidents with both teams playing so you never know who they are gonna turn on, like a "special guest referee" at Wrestlemania

So how were there no flags? I still don't get how the officials got it so wrong. I follow NFL a little bit probably CFB more, but I've never seen a TD given for that. Like you say offensive foul in the push on the Packers defensive end. CFB i've seen flags thrown for less contact. :?

It's the replacement refs, they are waaaay out of their depth. These refs aren't even from college, theyre from semi pro leagues, or high school leagues, or even the lingerie league. It'd be like EPL refs not working and using the refs from your Sunday leagues.

It's baaaad.

I am not so bothered about penalties being missed, as they are missed when the normal refs are refereeing.

But on SNF, Ravens had enough for a first down, but they marked it about a yard short. Harbaugh called for a measurement, allowing him time to throw the red flag. The refs should only go to the measurement if it's close, which you could clearly see the spot was terrible.

Then there was also a challenge flag thrown when they were out of timeouts...just awful.

The administration of the game is where the main problem is for me.
