I can see both ways. I'm sure Peyton knows that JR is well respected by his players and I doubt he took much insult as I am sure many things were said during the negotiations.

At the same time it hasn't been forgotten completely and I'm sure all the Denver players know that Fox wants this.

Fortunately we probably have the best momentum we have had all season and OUR players know how much it would mean to beat Fox.

i think many are forgetting this, ignoring it, or just don't think it matters.

these guys are more motivated than they've been in a long time, though.

it means more to the panthers than it does to the broncos and i could care less about fox anymore other than he's the enemy now and i want him to go down...same with peyton. i want him eating grass and begging for mercy.

Us against the world. The no respect card is usually played out but that's because it is usually the best way to motivate players. Nobody on the outside is giving the panthers a chance to beat the broncos..but they also don't really watch our games either.

they got tired of him and his message got old.

there were a few who were happy to see him go, smitty being among them.

he was a likeable guy from what i've heard, but frustrating because of how reluctant to change he was.

more than a couple players joked about "it is what it is" after he was gone.

Lots of sub plots to this match up:

Manning vs Cam

Fox vs Rivera

Manning vs JR

Fox vs JR

Defensive Line vs Manning

Manning vs DBs

Past vs Future

Chud vs Chud

One team struggling to remain relevant, the other trying to secure a playoff slot

It is what it is...

Both teams have plenty of reasons to be pumped up and ready to go Sunday.

Could be the best game we have seen in years.

Can't wait. Just me and my oldest (Cam jersey on the right) and even he knows the coach drama.

Perfect weather. Let's do this.

You think Manning has that at the back of his mind this week? How about: "What do you know about player safety?"

Not that Manning needs more motivation, but he doesn't strike me as the type to forget being belittled by Richardson during last year's discussions during the CBA. I know that Manning is too classy to ever admit it, but I know that this has to be at the back of his mind as he comes to BOA stadium. Some can simply brush Jerry Richardson comments as political posturing, but there was a decidedly condescending tone to Richardson's comments that an intelligent man like Manning would never forget---the kind that would want Manning to stick it to the crotchety old man as Peyton airs it out on Sunday.

I had forgot all about that but yes you can bet Manning hasn't.

it almost sounds like people are looking for reasons for the broncos to beat the panthers and even want the panthers to get beat.

That's preposterous! Just recognizing all the subplots. Who on here but popcornypopper wants the Panthers to get beat?

A victory over the Broncos would go a long way for Rivera, Cam, our D-line, and our defensive backfield to start gaining the respect that we have let slip through the cracks like the victories that we should have had this year over the Bears, Cowboys and Falcons. It is a game about real legitimacy---not just moral victories.
