The Peyton Manning era in Denver finally gets under way Sunday night against the Steelers after months of anticipation from the football nation. Perhaps the best part of the anticipation is the debate among the fans about the degree of success he’ll experience after missing the entire 2011 season and having four neck surgeries.
Here in Las Vegas, pro football fans don’t just debate the matter, they wager accordingly, and there have been two factions that have made their voices loud and clear. On one end, we have the largest portion of fans with small money betting the Broncos to win the Super Bowl as if they’ve already seen the Feb. 4, 2013 newspaper. On the other side, we have a small portion of bettors with large money betting the Broncos to win less than 8 ½ games in the over-under, season-win totals offered.
Instant bad memories for Oakland: In the last game that counted in Oakland, after Denver lost at home to Kansas City, all the Raiders had to do was beat the Chargers to go to the playoffs for the first time since 2002. However, San Diego, which was eliminated from the playoff race the week before, hammered the Raiders 38-26, keeping them out of the playoffs. It also cemented Hue Jackson’s departure from Oakland. Now, the Dennis Allen-led Raiders can get off to a good start in 2012 by handling the same Chargers.
The Thomas-Taylor showdown: Stepping onto the field in Denver on Sunday night will likely cause Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor to shake a little. On the last play of a game that counted on that field, Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas stiff-armed and badly beat Taylor on his way to a 80-yard touchdown pass from former Denver quarterback Tim Tebow on the first offensive play of overtime to give the Broncos a wild-card-round victory over the Steelers. The play will live forever in both Denver and Pittsburgh. I’m sure Manning will try to create some new memories for Thomas and Taylor if the opportunity presents itself Sunday night.
Every team at this stage of camp thinks it can be good. In Jacksonville, a significant improvement from 5-11 is certainly possible, no matter what the popular storylines are. Honest.
Theirs is a defense loaded with quality front-line talent. Beyond middle linebacker Paul Posluszny, most of it remains largely unknown. But if you don’t know linebacker Daryl Smith or cornerback Derek Cox or defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, that’s not the Jaguars' concern.
“If anyone feels we are not in a proper place or we have problems, that’s OK,” Posluszny said. “We feel like inside these walls we’re doing everything that we can to be a very successful team.
“Mularkey’s done a great job for us. He’s a former player who’s been through it. To me, that all means a ton, because he knows exactly what we are going through and what it takes to be successful.”
While the offense is being revamped, and Mularkey and his assistants are trying to reformat quarterback Blaine Gabbert after a horrific rookie season, the defensive system and bulk of the staff have been in place for a while now.
Gabbert has nice moments, but his overall inconsistencies halt any anxious proclamations that he made a significant offseason jump.
Fred Davis returns as the leading receiver after the release of Jabar Gaffney. He was able to wrestle away the starting job from the oft-injured Chris Cooley, and should be the main threat in the passing game. For the first time in his career, Santana Moss will be fighting for a roster spot, as Leonard Hankerson and Pierre Garcon look to be the starters. Josh Morgan should be decent, as he started off pretty well last season in San Francisco before breaking his leg.
Trent Williams has yet to live up to being selected fourth overall selection in 2010, and will have to really step up to protect RGIII's blindside. Kory Lichtensteiger returns after tearing his ACL last season, and will need to step up as well.
