Peyton Manning will forever be a hero in the city of Indianapolis. On Sunday night as he made his first appearance at Lucas Oil Stadium since becoming the Broncos’ quarterback, a capacity crowd roared when he took the field.
As Manning was warming up on the sidelines, the Colts played a Cheap Retro Jerseys NBA tribute video highlighting all of his accomplishments in Indy. Once the video concluded, Manning removed his helmet and began waving to the crowd for a couple of minutes. For a man who once held the key to the city, it was a fitting return — nothing cheesy or over-the-top, but heartfelt and sincere. After a lot of ugliness in the media the past week, it was a welcome change of pace for arguably the most intriguing game of the season.
Greg Schiano seemed like such a perfect fit for the Buccaneers. He said a lot of things about discipline that Raheem Morris didn’t. He monitored the thermostat to keep meeting rooms the right temperature. Discipline and savings, it was everything the Glazers wanted in a head coach.
Now the Buccaneers are 0-6. If you go back to last season, they’re 1-11 since Week 12. That’s after a 6-4 start to Schiano’s first season as head coach. Where did it all go wrong? Pick almost any point on the timeline — crashed victory formations, the Josh Freeman saga, MRSA, etc. — there is no wrong answer. Somewhere in there, I’d look for an example of how Schiano and his coaches got confused about the Cheap Red Wings Jerseys difference between discipline and stubbornness.
Atlanta came into this week’s NFC South matchup shorthanded. Roddy White and Julio Jones were both on the bench. All the Buccaneers had to do was make sure Matt Ryan’s new No. 1 receiver Harry Douglas was manned up.
Douglas finished the game with seven catches for 149 yards and a touchdown.
Revis spent most of the day lined up against Drew Davis. Who? Exactly.
