This video is awesome, to me anyway as a huge Peyton Manning fan that changed allegiance from the Colts to the Broncos when he changed teams. It is a fan made video that appears to start with NBC's promotional video for the Broncos/Colts game and then adds to it.

Broncos lost their first and second team centers for the year in training camp, forcing them to move a backup guard over to center. That guard had never played center before in his life (2 bad snaps yesterday led to turnovers, incidentally).
Then the Broncos lost their starting All-Pro left tack...

Peyton is dominating it and should break his own record by year-end. Brees has been moving up the list and should easily overtake Rivers by year-end. I think this metric gives Luck the credit he deserves as he is playing exceptional football without the gaudy stats to show for it (not one 300 yard...

He hit the receiver in the hands all 37 attempts. 5 times the receiver dropped the ball. He should have completed 100% of his passes, which is hard to do against air, much less an NFL defense.
Depending on how the stats guy count the drops last night (3 drops were undoubtedly just whiffs, 2 o...

Unless there is a total collapse the last 4 games, the MVP is his to lose. ...
