Denver went from having one of the best offenses in NFL history and a mediocre (at best) defense that was embarrassed in a super bowl to having one of the best defenses in NFL history and a mediocre (closer to bad) offense that did the embarrassing in a super bowl.

If you previously hated Manning or are a big Pats or Panthers fan, you have to feel some connection to Peyton in 2015. He will be 40 in 2 months. He struggled all season long, clearly well past his physical prime and dealing with multiple injuries to boot. He then has the absolute worst game of h...View Topic - Replies (16)
