    'Oh my God, how great is Peyton?'

    Pretty great, actually. Manningn became the first quarterback to ever throw 12 touchdowns without an interception by Week 3 and lead the Broncos to a 37-21 win against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night.

    "Only other quarterbacks know what a quarterback feels and sees out there and what it’s like after certain plays or certain throws. I think you do have great camaraderie and have a lot in common," Manning said.

    That’s why their weekend together in Augusta this spring was so special.

    As they walked the fairways, they could talk, quarterback to quarterback, Bronco to Bronco.

    Denver was forced to cut Elvis Dumervil after a contract gaffe. And Dumervil’s agent Marty Magic is pointing his finger at the Broncos.

    Magid claims the first contract sent to him by Broncos director of football administration Mike Sullivan contained a smaller base salary in the final year of the contract (2015) than he believed the team had offered. Magid said Sullivan then resent the contract via email with a new, higher number.

    Magid was in his office in Pennsylvania. Dumervil was in Miami, headed for a Kinko’s, according to Magid.

    Magid claims Dumervil sent a fax but the Broncos gave him a second fax number because the fax wasn’t coming through. Magid said Dumervil told him a fax was transmitted at 3:55 p.m. EDT, and that Dumervil has a confirmation to prove it.

    Regardless, it was too late for the team. They informed Magid they had to release his client instead of triggering the $12 million guarantee.

    "Twenty-three minutes to read it, scan it, fax it, get Elvis to a machine and get it through," Magid said. "We tried."

    Trindon Holliday, panting after his 90-yard TD return.

    Holliday, a former NCAA 100-meter track champion, returned a punt after Baltimore’s failed opening possession 90 yards for a touchdown – the longest postseason punt return in NFL history.

    It was first postseason punt return touchdown in Broncos history. The Broncos claimed Holliday off waivers in October when he was released by Houston, and he has provided plenty of excitement since.

    Peyton Manning Is Back and Better Than Ever

    Every few days, Archie Manning’s phone will ring early in the morning.

    It’s even earlier in Colorado, where Peyton Manning frequently makes the most of his time on the 20-minute commute from his home in an upscale suburb of Denver to the Broncos training facility.

    Archie Manning has been making it a point not to bother his son too much during his first season in Denver, but this much is clear from those phone calls: Peyton Manning is happy and enjoying football more than ever.
