It may happen Peyton is playing like an MVP, and I'm sure he as already spoken to Eli about our D. Also, when Fox was here he had a sense of loyalty among the players; I'm sure his players like him and would love to get him a win. So look for Denver to come out and give a full effort to win one for Fox. Bottom line is what is always is, how does Cam play. If he has a good day then its close, if he has a bad day; well its a bad day. (hows that for Fox speak)
I hope Peyton did talk to Eli about our defense. If he did, the conversation went like this:
Peyton: "Hey Eli, I'm calling you hands free from this sweet Buick I got for freezies! So I wanted to see if you could hook me up with some inside info on playing against the Panthers defense this week?"
Eli: "Sure thing big bro. So they have no pass rush, you can sit in the pocket all day long and not have to worry about a damn thing. Go ahead and send Thomas and Decker on those deep routes, because their dline is poo. Their best corner is Chris Gamble, so make sure you attack Norman, he's the tall, quiet one on the other side. Also, make sure you attack their MLB. He has lost a step big time and can't cover or tackle. I think he's coming back from Achilles surgery so he is running really gingerly. Also, their safety plays literally 40 yards back and you can throw bullshit passes in front of him all day. Also, their WLB is coming off three ACL surgeries so don't worry about him coming after you."
Peyton: "Thanks bro. This will really help me gameplan against them!!"
Fast forward to Sunday about 1:15. Broncos have the ball for the first time and Peyton see's our defense in person for the first time.
Peyton: "WTF is this poo?"
Proceeds to get sack-fumbled by GHB on the first play, and Kuechly runs it back for a TD.
