07:10 AM ET 09.05 | For an 11-year-old Eric Decker, the 1998 Minnesota Vikings were the gold standard. "But this group the Broncos have now has the chance to be the best," [former Broncos safety John Lynch] said, "when you consider the versatility they bring. And it's three different types of receivers." It also helps that the Broncos' pass-catching trio of Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Decker doesn't have [Randall Cunningham] throwing the ball. The Broncos have Peyton Manning. ... On paper, the addition of Welker gives the Broncos an opportunity to leap beyond the 1987-89 Washington Redskins, the 1995 Lions, the 1998 Vikings, the 1980 San Diego Chargers (if you want to count tight ends as a third receiver) and the 2004 Colts as the NFL's all-time best receiving trio.

Denver? Really? You're kidding, right? I don't think so... it will be a mediocre year at best. And live in Denver.

This is the closest I'll ever praise a Cowboy....

Barry Switzer's comment on Johny Manziel was excellent.

"You can't be that cocky and not sell cocaine.... It's just not right."

Oh snap... I forgot who I was talking to.

Johny Manziel is the arrogant dumb Texas AM QB who won the Heismann.

Why don't we cancel the season, declare Denver the SB winner and move on to winter?
Seldom has a more "Homer" media story been issued.
Any team with a healthy Peyton Manning is a contender, but they still have to win the games.

Any guess on the last time a thread mentioned Randall Cunningham? He must be thrilled.

Tough to compare 2013 Broncos with Peyton Manning at QB and 1995 Lions with Scott Mitchell.
