Opening Statement:

“A couple things, (about) the team we’re playing, John Fox knows us very well, and quite frankly, it’s a head coach we’ve struggled with in our division. I think Carolina, when he was there, was the only team that we were .500 against. So we continue to play catch-up a little bit trying to know Denver as well as he knows us. Anybody that has any questions about Peyton Manning’s ability on this comeback trail right now, his last three games he’s thrown an average of 300 yards, three touchdowns and a 70 percent completion percentage, which is historic. No one has ever done it before. Offensively, they’re learning the offense, the no-huddle. They have a great tempo. He identifies coverages quickly. Their run after the catch is getting better and better every game. Defensively, we better know where Von Miller is on every snap and Elvis Dumervil. Right now they’re third in the league with quarterback pressures with a four-man front. They’re getting to the quarterback. So we have our work cut out for us.”

The Broncos seem to be very good at halftime adjustments?

“I think right now they’re outscoring their opponents in the fourth quarter, I think it’s 79-6 or something like that. They’re also phenomenal in the second half. If there’s ever been a game where we’re going to put finish as a premium, it’s going to be this week. We’re going to have to finish this game. We’re going to get their best as the game goes on. I think that’s an earmark of Peyton Manning and what he’s done throughout his whole career. He does a great job on the sidelines of studying pictures and alignments in coverages. And sooner or later, no matter who he plays, he’s going to get to you. We’ve got to be patient, we’ve got to tackle well, and we’ve got to limit the big play. He’s going to get big plays on us, but we’ve got to be disciplined.”

Did Jimmy Graham practice today?

“Yes, he did what we call land base stuff. He did routes on air. He looked very, very good. The doctors and the trainers are examining right now. He looked good.”

Given the fact that the Broncos do play much better in the fourth quarter, do you game plan any differently?

“Anytime that you play a guy like Peyton (Manning) or a veteran quarterback like Tom Brady or Drew Brees, you’ve got to keep a couple of hold calls for the fourth quarter and give them some looks that they haven’t seen before and just hold on and see if you can confuse them a couple of snaps. And at the end of the day really, you really don’t confuse him very often, but you can potentially confuse some other people with route recognition, the way that the receivers have to adjust their routes, maybe some protection breakdowns and things like that. But he’s seen just about it all.”

What’s Daniel Graham’s injury?

“He’s got a knee.”

Anyone else hear Sean in that answer?

Yeah definitely

Like I said couple weeks back, vitt and Payton have the exact same attitude

Sure sounds a lot like Payton answering the question lol

It's as close as we are going to get in terms of getting someone like Payton on the sidelines lol

You know, it just might be worth an assault charge. Maybe........

btw: that's another great idea for a catchy t-shirt slogan.
