Peyton Manning is seen as one of, if not, the greatest quarterback to play in the NFL. After the five-time MVP’s performance against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, it is fitting to remember why Manning is so loved by fans, non-fans, and those within the league.
Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Denver the day before the Texans and Broncos preseason game. They spoke to Mike Rice, 850 AM, to get a local perspective on the match up tomorrow. Rice thinks the Broncos veterans will see their most game action in this game in the preseason. He thinks the joint practices were really good for both teams. Rice says the Broncos defense is starting to mesh with the new pieces they’ve added. He says the defense definitely is something that needs continued work for the team this season.
Former Texan Nick Ferguson joined The B-Straw & Pauly G show to talk football. Ferguson discussed his experiences playing Peyton Manning and warned that Manning is always watching what’s going on around him. He said that Ryan Fitzpatrick can make some good plays but he needs to do more than that to be a really good quarterback in the league. He said that having Watt and Clowney helps the Texans a lot, but they need more than that to win games. He thinks that DJ Swearinger needs to cut down on his smack talk and show more on the field. Ferguson thinks O’Brien will “right the ship” though it may not mean they’ll get to the Super Bowl in the next year or two.
Alfred Williams from 104.3 the Fan in Denver joined Mad Radio and they talked about the latest around the Broncos, the new attitude on the Broncos defense, the biggest hole on the Broncos, the new illegal contact rules and his thoughts on the Browns picking Hoyer over Manziel.
The B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip will be spending most of the week in Denver touching on Texans practices there. Today the guys checked in with James Palmer of CSN Houston for his observations. He talked about all the guys coming back from injuries and looking good on the field today especially Arian Foster. Palmer said the team has felt very frustrated with Louis Nix’s injury issues. He discussed how tight lipped the Broncos have been about tweeting from practice. Palmer thinks Peyton Manning was using bit of coach speak when he said that the Broncos sucked at practice today because he was still doing well and hitting his target a lot of the time. He thinks that Cushing could play Saturday because he was a lot more active in practice than he has been before now.
So it is with my jaded view of the world that I address the Ben Roethlisberger – Emmanuel Sanders feud. Sanders said that his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, is a much better leader than his old quarterback, Big Ben. And thus the verbal jousting began, feathers flexed, talons out.
Michael Irvin joined Mad Radio and they talked about Andre Johnson’s rough offseason, the Dallas Cowboys horrible defense, how some star players like Peyton Manning can dictate changes in the rules and will there be flopping in the NFL now due to the tough illegal contact rules?
It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
