12:18 AM ET 10.12 | When the Denver Broncos travel to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on the Indianapolis Colts, the team will have a very special tribute in store for longtime quarterback Peyton Manning, who parted ways with the team just two seasons ago. If owner Jim Irsay is to be believed, the tribute will be touching and leave everyone feeling great about Peyton's time with the Colts.

After the Dallas Denver game? What did you? figure came out of the shootout?

It certainly showed both D's sucked And Romo Came damn near ruining Peytons afternoon.

Hate too say it,but Indy,just might have the one big asskicking [after the ceremony] coming.too him.

Yes,He's Fantastic,But? He's gonna lose and choak at the paramount of his Position as Denvers QB.

When it really counts.

Let's just see how [after only 5 games into the season],That Peyton comes thru when it's down and dirty. Later on in the season.

Indy might do that for him.

I take that back,both Ds played ahellova game,And Romo made a fatal mistake.

But they had their boot on Manning's throat.

The tribute sounds more like a "Sorry we gave up on you, but this is a business kid".

Sure worked out well for both teams though

And the Irsay's will have a special booth where Peyton can watch the celebration. Then they'll lock the door and play the game.

He has already received his tribute from Squire Irsay. Instead of waking up in the morning and being in Indianapolis, he wakes up in Denver.

Well said.

Manning has genuine love for the game, winning and losing. He touches people whom are often overlooked. He cares more about the human element than the scoreboard, and he cares quite a bit about the scoreboard.

Superbowl or a bust along the way, I'm proud that Pat Bowlen stepped up to get Peyton and surrounded him with the tools that he needs to make the attempt.

Elway was a bust until his last 2 seasons - could never win the big game. Peyton has the same will to win, albeit a different set of skills.

Harsh. He took many slightly above average teams a long way before their back to back SB wins. The best team in the AFC was probably the Browns in several of those years in the 80's, but Elway (despite being handcuffed by Reeves for much of his career) played some of his best football in the playoffs (not the Super Bowl unfortunately). Being the best team in the AFC in the mid to late 80's was like being the king of the dipshitzz. The NFC seemed head and shoulders above the AFC back then.

Elway himself admitted later that his career wouldn't have been fulfilled without the ring, but calling him a "bust" is a little over the top. Dan Marino... (played some of his worst football in the playoffs)....now there was a bust! Right?

He wasn't a bust in my view - just the league view. Him and Marino, no titles. They had talent but were thought of as less than great.

If you live(d) in Denver (I did up until 2011), 1995 and earlier the sports page always had a number of articles each season trying to garner support for the benching of big E.

Maybe bust was the wrong word, my built in thesaurus is weak today.

I remember when Reeves drafted Tommy Maddux to be the air apparent. Ha!

True, though, that the ring is the thing. Walking off the field with back to back SB titles and a Super Bowl MVP in his last game made Elway a Legend with a very rare storybook ending. Without those titles his career would have viewed quite differently...
