Peyton Manning Is Riding A Bronco

Payton Manning is back and heating it up in Denver! It was a pleasure watching him dissect the Pittsburgh defense. It was quite a coup to bring him to Denver (thank John Elway) and he looks healthy and firing on … Continue reading

Tebow and Denver – A Match Made in Heaven

How about those Denver Broncos? Pittsburgh was no match for Tim Tebow and his ‘friends in high places’. Maybe Jesus really does watch football! In the past we only saw his work in the 4th quarter but yesterday he showed … Continue reading

Pittsburgh and Green Bay are Super Bowl Bound

There were some good football games this weekend. The first half of both games was rather lopsided but second half rallies led both to exciting finishes. It should be a well contested Super Bowl. I’m neutral except for the bet … Continue reading
