DENVER —Itll take some getting used to, seeing Peyton Manning with the
orange-maned mustang on his helmet instead of the blue-on-white horseshoe. Pat Angerer Youth Jersey . The four-time MVP
is making a comeback in the city defined by them thanks to another iconic
quarterback. When John Elway decided to go after the biggest free agent prize in
NFL history, the Denver Broncos brassy boss was first in line to make his pitch.
Then Elway gave Manning some space, figuring hed appreciate not being pestered
with follow-up calls. It was a sign of respect from one superstar quarterback to
another as Elway sat back and watched Manning meet with his other suitors and
decide where hed begin his comeback from a lost 2011 season. “I knew if I was on
the market in the prime of my career, then thats the way I would want to be
treated,” Elway explained. Displaying the same icy resolve he demonstrated while
leading the Broncos on all those fourth-quarter comebacks and to so many Super
Bowls, Elway patiently told an ever-antsy coach John Fox one morning last March
that theyd just sit back and wait for Manning to call them—hopefully with
good news. Just then, Elways phone rang. He took the call, gave his coach a
thumbs-up and Fox jumped for joy, joking he nearly sprained both ankles during
his silent celebration. When Elway hung up, they hollered and the rest of the
coaching staff came running. Elways strategy had worked. Will his bold bet also
pay off? The Broncos are betting $96 million it will. They jettisoned Tim Tebow
a day after landing Manning, who was released by the Indianapolis Colts in March
after missing last season following four neck operations. Indy will start anew
with Andrew Luck. Manning moved to Denver, rented Mike Shanahans massive mansion
and went right to work, rehabbing in the morning, throwing in the afternoon and
poring over the playbook and film into the wee hours. During off-season
practices, Manning showed no ill effects of the nerve issue that caused weakness
in his throwing arm last year and led to his tear-filled divorce from the team
and town he brought to the forefront of pro football. The euphoric Broncos say
theyve seen no reason to go easy with Manning when training camp begins
Wednesday. Although Manning insists he has a ways to go in his rehab, his arm
strength looks good and his deciphering of defences appears as astute as ever.
What he lacks is timing with his new targets, and old pals Brandon Stokley and
Jacob Tamme are on hand to help with that. “Theres no question its been a big
change, a big switch. Its one Im trying to adjust to,” Peyton said at his
familys passing camp in Louisiana earlier this month. “Theres constantly
something to learn, something to adjust to, new players, new teammates, new
coaches, new surroundings. So when youre 14 years in one place, you do kind of
become institutionalized. “Everybody keeps saying, Are you settled yet? ... I
dont think anybody can get settled in a couple of months. So itll take some
time, but Im embracing the challenge and looking forward to getting to know my
teammates more and more.” One thing he surely wasnt thrilled to learn about was
the recent arrest of Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil on suspicion of
aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a traffic dispute in Miami.
Another of Denvers stars, linebacker D.J. Williams, is facing a six-game drug
suspension and an August drunken driving trial that could lead to an even longer
absence from the Broncos retooled defence. These are important developments
because a good deal of Mannings success this season will depend upon how Denvers
defence does. Will he have to play catch-up or can he play keep-away? Will he be
leading furious comebacks in crunch time or directing clock-eating drives to
protect leads? Will opponents spend most of the game dropping into coverage or
blitzing? The Broncos arent going to want Manning throwing as much as he did in
his last full season, 2010, when he averaged a career-high 42 passes a game.
What will really keep that pitch count manageable is a strong ground game,
superb pass protection and a stingy, opportunistic defence led by Dumervil,
Williams, Champ Bailey and Von Miller. Manning said he still has more
rehabilitation ahead and has “stopped giving percentages” regarding how healthy
he is. But his goal remains to participate fully in training camp, preseason and
the regular season. “Like I said, I still have work to do, but certainly its
nice to be back on the field. You know, 20 years of pretty incredible health,
never having to miss a game, never in my entire life playing football, so last
year was different,” Manning said. At 36, Manning is eager to show 2011 was but
a speed bump in his storied career and not a roadblock that portends a dead end.
“I just know that he is going to play great football,” Elway said. “That is when
I played my best football, the older I got, 37 and 38 were the two best years we
had in my career. I just know when you look at Peytons track record and his
health … he hasnt had any other significant injuries. I think with the way he
plays the game, we believe he can play as long as he wants.” On the day Manning
signed on the dotted line, Elway was asked who is the best quarterback in the
building? Elway might not have some of Mannings prolific passing statistics, but
he owns two rings to Mannings one. “Is he ahead of me yet? That is for you guys
to decide,” Elway replied. “I know one thing, he has a hell of a lot more yards
than I ever had, he has more touchdowns. The thing is, we are in the
conversation, I would like to get to the place where he is the best of all
time.” Jerrell Freeman Jersey ., according to
current owner John Henry. Henry, who bought Liverpool through his investment
company Fenway Sports Group, cautioned fans that it will take longer to rebuild
the storied football club than it did with the Boston Red Sox, which is owned by
the same group. Antoine Bethea Jersey .J. —Ilya Bryzgalov
had plenty of time this season to babble on about bears, the universe, the
woods, and other arcane bits of knowledge. http://www.shoptheindianapoliscolts.com/kavell-conner-jersey
. The deal announced Sunday includes $7 million salaries for each of the next
two seasons and a $7 million team option for 2015. Street is making $7. Tom Zbikowski Jersey . Oh, and give the
winner a check for $195,000. South Koreans Jiyai Shin, Kim, So Yeon Ryu and Hee
Kyung Seo dominated the leaderboard, sharing the top spot at 11-under 202 on
Saturday through the third round. T.Y. Hilton Jersey . The three-time world
champion from Windsor, Ont., has to hope shes awarded the lone wild card berth
for the Games after she missed out on one of the two Olympic spots up for grabs
this week at the womens world championships. MIAMI —Regardless of how
Ricky Romero has pitched, hes been provided with plenty of run support.
Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs, Kelly Johnson also had three RBIs
and the Toronto Blue Jays backed Romero handsomely in a 12-5 victory over the
skidding Miami Marlins on Friday night. “Ive been lucky,” Romero said. “The
hitters have done their part every time Ive pitched it seems like.” Toronto had
supported Romero (8-1) with an average of 9.16 runs per game entering Friday,
which put him third in the majors. He did not have his best stuff against the
Marlins, allowing four runs, seven hits and four walks. But he did give the Blue
Jays seven much-needed innings after Toronto placed three starters on the
disabled list in the last week. “Its been a grind, it honestly has,” Romero
said. “Nothing has come easy for me this year. Its no secret. Im battling,
grinding and trying to do everything possible to get deep in the game.”
Kyle Drabek was lost for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and
Drew Hutchison (elbow sprain) and Brandon Marrow (strained rib cage muscle) also
went on the DL. Brett Lawrie had three hits and scored four times to help the
Blue Jays end an eight-game losing streak to the Marlins, who own a 17-5
advantage in the series. “Im seeing the ball well and just trying to get on base
for the guys behind me to allow them to do their job,” Lawrie said. Miami has
lost five straight and 14 of 16 overall. Its been a stark contrast from May when
the Marlins went 21-8, setting a franchise record for wins in a month. “Id
rather lose 2-1 because I have a chance,” Miami manager Ozzie Guillen said.
“That means were pitching well but were not hitting.” Giancarlo Stanton,
Omar Infante and Gaby Sanchez homered for the Marlins. “Nothings fair now,”
Stanton said. “Thats pretty much the story. Its either nothing, or one or the
other. Weve got to turn it all at the same time.” Lawrie led off the game with a
triple down the right-field line and scored on a groundout by Colby Rasmus.
Bautista singled home Lawrie in the third, and Johnsons sacrifice fly scored
Bautista. “It was a very good offensive night again,” Blue Jays manager John
Farrell said. “Brett gets us started right out of the gate with a triple.”
Toronnto chased Anibal Sanchez (3-6) in the fourth after the right-hander walked
in a run with the bases loaded, giving the Blue Jays a 4-0 lead. Mike McGlynn Jersey. . Two more runs scored
in the inning, both charged to Sanchez. He gave up six runs, seven hits and four
walks in 3 1-3 innings. “I wanted to help the team,” Sanchez said. “I know the
situation right now with the team. I just want to do the best I can, like I do
every time. I wanted to help the team get out of the hole we are in right now.”
Stantons homer and an RBI single by Hanley Ramirez cut the lead to 6-2 before
the Blue Jays scored five more in the sixth off Ryan Webb, keyed by a two-run
double from J.P. Arencibia. Johnson and Rajai Davis each had an RBI single in
the inning and Yunel Escobar drove in a run with Torontos third sacrifice fly.
Bautistas 419-foot homer to left was his 23rd of the season and 11th in the past
18 games. Infantes two-run shot was his first since May 8. Sanchezs only other
home run came on April 26. NOTES: Toronto general manager Alex Anthopoulos
confirmed that Hutchison has a sprained right elbow after the pitcher had
additional tests, but Hutchison will not need Tommy John surgery. “Hes on a
non-throwing program for four to six weeks,” Anthopoulos said. “At that point,
then he can start a normal throwing program. In terms of coming back, if its six
weeks that he doesnt throw, then hes going to start throwing again and get
ready, youre probably looking at September.” ... The Blue Jays have made an
adjustment in their starting rotation. RHP Jesse Chavez will start Sunday
against Miami and RHP Henderson Alvarez will start Monday against Boston. ...
Marlins CF Emilio Bonifacio (sprained left thumb) took 25 swings from the left
side for the first time since his May 18 injury and did not have any pain.
Although he would like to return sooner, Bonifacio is still expected to be out
until after the All-Star break. ... ESPN basketball analyst Dick Vitale was in
attendance. ... U.S. soccer standout Jozy Altidore threw out the ceremonial
first pitch. Altidore will play in the World Soccer Masters Tour game at Sun
Life Stadium on Saturday. ... Miami will send RHP Josh Johnson (4-5, 4.18 ERA)
to the mound Saturday to face LHP Brett Cecil (1-0, 3.60). Johnson is 6-1 with a
2.06 ERA in his last 10 interleague starts. ’ ’ ’
