Peyton Manning not traveling with the Broncos

AP

It’s been known since Monday that Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning won’t play on Sunday against the Bears. On Friday, coach Gary Kubiak said Peyton won’t even make the trip.

The decision represents an extension of the approach taken by the team all week. As explained by Mike Klis of 9news.com, Kubiak excused Manning from all meetings, practices, and games so that he could focus on rehabilitating and recovering from his injuries.

That’s a more ominous vibe than what emerged from a Thursday night report from James Palmer of NFL Media, who accurately explained that Manning hasn’t attended meetings or practices — and added that Manning hasn’t spoken to Brock Osweiler about the game plan.

Klis, however, explains that Manning told Osweiler on Monday, “Go win this game for us. If you need anything I’m here for you.”

The various reports create dueling impressions regarding whether Manning is or isn’t trying to help Osweiler. Manning definitely needs to focus on getting himself healthy. But he also definitely has wisdom and advice that could be given to Osweiler in advance of his first start. Then again, he definitely has no incentive to help Osweiler play so well that the Broncos would stick with Osweiler and keep Manning on the bench.

  1. Whether you believe the injuries or not, he came back to steal the record.

    Like a thief in the night.

  2. Typical Manning being a team-first guy. No more personal records to take on Sunday, in the leadup of a huge game for the team, so I’m not surprised he’s going above and beyond…for himself.

  3. Name me one backup QB that has benefitted from being under Manning……………(waiting)……….(waiting)……..(crickets getting louder)…..

    That’s what I thought. You can’t.

  4. Peyton Manning is treating Brock Osweiler like those kids in his SNL United Way commercial skit.
    Man that’s still great.

  5. From CBS Boston:

    Manning’s explanation for not being around for Osweiler essentially amounts to Manning saying that there will be enough people offering advice, so his is not needed.

    “No, I’m not a coach for one thing. And as I shared with him, he’s probably going to have a lot of coaches this week, some that aren’t coaches either, that are going to be offering him tips or advice,” Manning said. “So I told him that I am here for him as a resource if he needs me, but I’m not going to be one of those extra voices in his ear.”

  6. So its either one or the other? He can’t rehab and still be available to help out his young QB on the sidelines….sounds like Manning doesn’t care if the team wins or not if he’s not the QB….Big Ben was on the sidelines drawing up plays to help his 3rd string QB….Manning can’t even show up to practice to help out smh Big Ben > Peyton Manning

  7. I guess, at least for an away game, there’s a difference between “I’m here for you” and “I’m there for you”

  8. There is no way plays again this season. His body can’t withstand starts in back-to-back weeks, even when he’s not injured. Brock or bust. Or Brock and bust. Either way, it’s all BROCK, baby!

  9. Yeah, I’m sure those other voices are as helpful as Manning’s. He’s pouting and singing, ” getting sat don’t don’t feel so good.”

  10. Drew Brees was on the sidelines in Charlotte this year in the game Luke McCown started for the Saints and between series you could see the two of them talking as if McCown leaned on Brees for some help. That’s the least Manning could do.

  11. I’m not a Broncos fan as wasn’t a Colts fan, but I’ve never understood the negativity toward Manning. He’s a first ballot HOF player, no question. No player has ever had the kind of command of the offense that he has. He’s always been classy, on and off the field. His stats speak for themselves. This speculation about him wanting Osweiler to fail or not succeed as much as he could is absurd.

  12. Prediction: Broncos will announce Manning will have season ending surgery on something as Brock Osweiler will prove to be the much better option these coming weeks and no way Manning is the type of guy that will swallow his pride and back him up.

  13. Kubiak said this week that Manning disagreed with Kubiak’s decision to rest him, and start Osweiler. It shows how delusional he is. It is obvious at this point that the only chance Denver has to make any noise in the post season rests with having Osweiler as the starter. Peyton was on pace for 30 interceptions this season, 30 ! He is finished, he was finished at the end of last year. Denver has claimed he now has all these numerous ” injuries.” That is just to protect him, they know he is done. If osweiler does ok Peyton has played his last game

  14. He has to come back. Favre still has the interception record and he’ll need to get that before he checks out.

  15. Not helping Osweiler. Not travelling with the team. Typical selfish Manning behavior. It’s all about padding his stats, the team is incidental.

    And his lame excuse for not helping Osweiler:

    “No, I’m not a coach for one thing”

    But I thought Manning was a “coach on the field”? Isn’t that what all his fan boy shave been telling us all these years? All we ever hear is what a genius Manning is, and how “no one is as good at reading defenses”. Couldn’t he be some help on the sidelines? His presence could make the difference between winning and losing.

    But of course, Manning doesn’t care about winning. It’s all about his numbers.

  16. apparently he didn’t like PFT’s “from record holder to clipboard holder” line last Sunday

  17. Name me one backup QB that has benefitted from being under Manning……………(waiting)……….(waiting)……..(crickets getting louder)…..

    That’s what I thought. You can’t.

    ————————

    Curtis Painter benefited, because the world didn’t have to see how bad he stunk when Manning was playing.

  18. Intended or not the result of him not travelling with the team is a net plus. They need to win a game and the added distraction of the media frenzy of Manning in street clothes or worse, as an emergency QB is distraction they don’t need

  19. Great player, just not the guy you want leading a drive when the money is on the table. Not talking about a 2m drill vs. the Jags on some week 6, 1pm start time game either.

  20. This can’t be normal. Even in 2011 when everyone knew he was out for the year, he was still in the coaches box during the games, if I remember right. Different org, of course. Maybe it’s the Broncos who don’t want him along and not PFM. Worried his recent bad play might rub off on Osweiler too, or that he might somehow manage to throw INTs even while standing on the sidelines.

  21. I hate Ben Rothlesberger as much as the next Cincinnatian, but he was there on the sidelines and very passionate and doing everything he could to help Vick.

    Leader of the team not even traveling with them? Oh HELL no!

  22. I have never liked Manning at all, but I think all this antipathy is uncalled for, or at least premature. It’s one game, we don’t know the extent of Manning’s injury, and the coaches are the ones who should be preparing Osweiler. Let’s see how this goes in the next two or three weeks, and if Manning stays away from home games, then maybe there’s something there. But I think it’s a little early to convict him of abandoning Osweiler.

  23. Remember that Papa Johns commercial where Peyton effortlessly threw pizza dough all across town?

    They don’t show that one anymore.

  24. He doesn’t need to be there to help coach Osweiler, how about just being there to cheer on the whole team. They’d do it for him. That includes practices and meetings.

    Of course they care about the whole TEAM concept.

  25. So John Fox won’t even see Manning then, much less coach against him. How the worm turns.

  26. you know, it’s almost kind of boring not having a Roethlisburger article to comment on.

  27. Reminds me of Favre and Aaron Rodgers… didn’t Bret say something similar about “I’m not being paid to coach back-up quarterbacks” when his career was winding down?

    I guess it’s understandable in some respects since the really great QBs must have to have egos and confidence the size of King Kong, but it seems to be that the truly great ones have the above as well as an overriding sense of TEAM rather than ME. Favre and Payton have obviously been great players at their position, but they both also always struck me as being ME guys first and TEAM guys only as long as they were winning and in total control of the QB position.

  28. Manning has his ring, his $$$, and his records. At this point, he would be a great backup quarterback.

    I always kinda thought that about Brett Favre, who was in similar (better?) situation before leaving Green Bay.

    Instead of leaving Green Bay, Favre could have voluntarily been the backup. Talk about reassurance while working Rogers up, and insurance in case Rogers got injured. Easier job, godfather in the locker room, on the roster for years more than otherwise, and becoming a venerated franchise institution.

    Instead, he went and floundered around with the Jets, then the Vikes. Ego not salved, reputation sullied, and going out as a loser – just like everyone else who went same path. Odd the way history constantly repeats itself that way.

    Now it’s Manning’s turn at the same inflection point.

  29. If Manning has a torn plantar fascia, do you guys really think he should suck it up and stand around on the sidelines in order to “support the team”? The guy is injured – best thing he can do for the team is go heal.

  30. Peyton Manning was the best/most consistent player week to week to ever play the position, period. Show some respect you filthy trolls.

  31. Manning will never play another down. Kind of glad about that because he won’t beat Favre’s total wins record. Manning couldn’t carry Favre’s athletic supporter.

  32. I’d like to sit here and criticize Manning, but it’s just not realistic for any professional athlete to train and prep there replacement. It just does not make sense. Why would one athlete help someone else Take their job, they’re starting role, they’re earning potential, etc.we as fans would like to think athletes can pass the torch on to the next guy but it just doesn’t work that way.

  33. I could understand him missing the trip if he were on IR. No brainer there.

    But there must be a reason he or they don’t want him to be seen on the sideline. A boot? Or some other apparatus that may indicate the injuries could be more severe than we are being led to believe.

    It’s just odd.

  34. “Come home to indy peyton so we can boo you off the field for being a regular season stat monkey”

    What a disgusting Colts fan. PM brought home a Super Bowl trophy for you classless fans. This just proves how ignorant the fan base is. Good Luck!

  35. As they have all year (taken away play calling, dismantled a damn good O line, cut his salary, changed offensive scheme, turn to “power running!” LOL) the Broncos continue to kick Manning to the curb. There is no way Kubiak wants another offensive coordinator on the sidelines, thus Peyton stays in Denver.

    —————————————————-

    Do you think Montana coached Young?

    Do you think Brady coaches Groappalo?

    NFL starting QBs have enough on their plate, they don’t need to be the 2nd QB coach too. That comment from Favre got blown way out of proportion, but you will find that it is pretty much the league norm.

  37. Name me one backup QB that has benefitted from being under Manning……………(waiting)……….(waiting)……..(crickets getting louder)…..

    That’s what I thought. You can’t.

    They all did! They all made Millions of dollars for doing almost absolutely nothing!

  38. Well Peyton, I hope you tune out all of this hate-laced conjecture from either 1- Broncos/Colts fans who are so ungrateful for you bringing them into relevancy or 2-Other teams fans who are jealous of your longevity or brilliance in relation to their own insecurities.

    Personally, the NFL is a better place with you in it. I’ve enjoyed your games for a long time. ~ Saints Fan

    So who is Osweiler’s back up this week?
    ——————-

    Elway.

  40. “Hence, only 1 ring, which Dominic Rhodes and the Colts defense had to secure.”

    Don’t forget Adam Vinatieri’s 5 FG in the Divisional round of the playoffs.

  41. Please – only 46 players can dress for a game by rule – why would you use one of those slots for an injured player who can’t suit up?

  42. It’s just amazing to me the anti-Manning backlash these days. Just amazing. Do we hate popularity that much? Do we have to tear down everyone who gets popular?

    I remember not that long ago when Peyton was loved, not for his ability on the field, but for the type of person we know him as (publically, that is).

    Does anyone really think he is trying to sabotage the Broncos chances of winning, for, as the writer puts it, “he definitely has no incentive to help Osweiler play so well that the Broncos would stick with Osweiler and keep Manning on the bench.”

    This is bordering on RIDICULOUS.

  43. Yeah Peyton, just like you helped Brock on the sideline last game. What an enormous ego! Always before the team.

  44. Everywhere is 90% Patriots fans. Almost two decades of winning will do that. There are people filling out college applications right now that have never known a Patriots losing season. Have a great weekend.

  45. Peyton’s teammates respect his past…but very few like him, and Manning never ever socializes with any of them.

    REMEMBER THE PLAYOFFS…When Peyton threw his offensive line under the bus….blaming them for a bad loss [ I’m not sure which one, as there were so many]…That was the first PUBLIC sign , that he is ” me first”.

    Away from football…he’s described as a good guy…but unlike Brady…He’s not one of the guys. Brady’s teammates would run through a wall for him…and vice versa. Thats why they win so much.

  46. Sack up Peyton. You can’t to be a leader and then bail on everything the moment you leave the field. I like Manning but this is a piss poor example of teamwork and leadership. Is it any wonder why his backups have never been prepared when they have to play?

  47. From Mike Klis:
    “This whole year it’s been impressive to be around him,” Siemian said of Manning. “I obviously knew he was a heckuva player and heckuva quarterback but seeing how he’s handled this year and the grace he’s had as he’s gone about things, he’s always been so level-headed about it. And he’s been an awesome teammate. That’s the biggest takeaway I’ve had. Today has been no different. He’s a class guy. I’m real fortunate I’m in the same room as him.”

  48. Well, he has more commercials to shoot so why waste time helping out a possible future starter and help keep his team in a good playoff spot.

    toddsuperbowles, I agree. These patsies trolls are everywhere, on every article.

    I think many Patriots fans have grown to like and respect Peyton Manning over the years. I certainly have. I really hope that he is able to get back on the field this year, and when he’s hangs up his cleats he will go down as one of the greatest ever and he will most certainly become a great TV personality I’m sure. I could see him replacing Collinsworth or Simms in a heartbeat.

    That’s what he gets for winning the Super Bowl and taking teams to the playoffs every year?

  51. I watched manning on the sidelines for the entire 11` season. As is most hurt guys, too. Either the dude is pissed, or the dude cant even get out of bed. You are either a team guy, or a megalomaniac. Honestly, this looks like sheer selfishness andwhining.

  52. The guy has a bad foot and bad ribs. They told him to chill out, sit down and let the foot heal.

    However, he should have went to the game and hung out on crutches or seated on the sideline. It doesn’t look good.

  53. The various reports create dueling impressions regarding whether Manning is or isn’t trying to help Osweiler. Manning definitely needs to focus on getting himself healthy. But he also definitely has wisdom and advice that could be given to Osweiler in advance of his first start. Then again, he definitely has no incentive to help Osweiler play so well that the Broncos would stick with Osweiler and keep Manning on the bench.
    ___________________

    If everyone will admit it, it was all over for manning two years ago. He’s always been in this for himself. Money and records … that’s all he’s ever cared about.

  54. No doubt Peyton is a great quarterback but there are a lot of other quarterbacks I would take before him. Never really could put it together in the postseason and for as many times as he made the playoffs, he should have more than one ring.

    Let’s not forget in 06 against us, he really didn’t play well in the super bowl. Dominic Rhodes & Joseph Addai won that game.

    Brady is easily the best quarterback in NFL history and it’s really not even close. Nobody else will ever duplicate the dominance or he amount of rings in the salary cap era (before the Ids come out of their holes, I will repeat salary cap era).

    P.S. I’d take Big Ben over manning any day. Would take Eli too.

    Maybe so. But why do Patriots fans find it impossible to credit Peyton Manning or any other current great quarterback? We’ll never know but I’d bet the farm that if Bellichick was Peyton’s head coach the last 15 years, Manning would have 4 Super Bowl rings.

  56. If he doesn’t play in SNF game on 11/29 vs the Pats, will the networks “flex” it out for another game. Have we seen our final Brady v. Manning?

  57. As someone who broke their neck and got all messed up again ten years later just trying to do a 1-1/2 off the diving board like the old days, I can say that Peyton would be a fool to get back on that field ever again now that he has his records. He only had to endure one huge humiliation in the process in SB48 so it was totally worth it.

    The records were the only reason he would’ve ever have considered coming back after that injury anyway. Now that it’s gone(passing yards), so is the motivation to even be out there anymore.

    One bad hit and he could be all messed up for the rest of his life. It just isn’t worth it. His neck is going to hurt the rest of his life as it is, no need to make it worse.

    Brady disappeared in 08 too. I was disappointed by that, but those of us not associated with the team really don’t know whose decision that is.

  60. Why is this such a big story when DeMarcus Ware isn’t travelling with the team either?? They are preparing them both for NE next week. People really have no lives on here talking about PM having a “me” first outtake, when he has consistently stated that he’ll continue to play as long as he can help the TEAM win games.

    ” … anti-Manning backlash these days.” ??? Hey, I was badmouthing the swamp boy years ago. I always knew he was a selfish player who only cared about himself and money.

  66. You guys all did it to my boy Favre during his final years. The anti-Favre comments on these boards were just ridiculous, and PFT would fuel it by posting incredulous stories. I’m just repaying the favor.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right. But three lefts do.
    Brett Favre is a million times more selfish than Peyton Manning and Favre was my favorite player for a long time.

  67. Either he is so self centered he told the team screw you, I’m the guy, not one else gets my playing time, I need to set and add to my records while I have a chance or
    He is really hurt bad and will probably be out quite a while.

  68. Peyton may protest taking this time to heal, he is a warrior after all, but the man can’t bend down to take his own cleats off right now! The subject of his demise has been the number 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, & 10 NFL media topic for several weeks. It would continue to be the same on Sunday if Peyton is on the sideline-which cameras darting to him after every play. The spotlight will now be on Osweiler, he will be the unquestioned leader in the huddle, on the field & on the sideline. No Peyton looking over his shoulder or constant speculation about what he’s telling him- it will be all about Osweiler, as it should be. Peyton handed over the car & keys, not riding shotgun, so he can grab the wheel anytime, as though the driver’s competence is in question. He’s trusting Osweiler to take the controls and giving him his vote of confidence!

    How quickly they turn on you!!

  71. Manning has been the model of excellence on and off of the field for the better part of two decades now. When was the last time anyone heard anything negative about him off of the field? Ever been arrested? Ever cheated? Your jealous hate is showing.

    #theyhateusbecausetheyaintus
    #peytonnevercheated

  72. Manning doesn’t know Kubiak’s offense any better than Osweiler. I think that’s obvious from how he’s played this season. Osweiler will be fine without his help and he knows it.

  73. This is all leading up to the big surprise…….
    Elway comes out of retirement vs Pats!!
    His arm is certainly stronger than Manning’s even at his current age and Elway has never lost to the Pats.
    He can’t do worse than last week’s horror show from Manning.

  74. All of you comparing his situation to brees this season. No one was calling for some unproven backup to replace Brees for the rest of the season! Thats the difference

  75. I’ve seen this movie before. In the 2001 season after Drew Bledsoe was injured in a game vs. the Jets, Bill Belichick was forced to play Tom Brady at QB. When Bledsoe was healed up and ready to play, Belichick continued to play Brady. The rest is history as the Patriots went on to win their first Super Bowl. That whole season Bledsoe gave Brady no advice, no guidance, nothing. Ignored him in team meetings like they were strangers. Bledsoe even skipped the Super Bowl parade and went home to Washington state. Time has healed those wounds but for the longest time Bledsoe’s image took a bad hit in New England. Manning’s is about to do the same.

  76. 1 year too long.

    You could see it in his passes the very first game.

    Every mid-range pass he was doing a full wind-up and grimessing all the way.

    Like Farve sometimes players are the last to know.

    Hall of Fame Player.
    Teammate , not so much.
    Then again that is true for a good number of others too.

    Hence, only 1 ring, which Dominic Rhodes and the Colts defense had to secure.

    —————————-
    And Rex Grossman’s 2 picks helped him get his ring too!

  79. He’s just holed away, studying up for the Pats. In fact, they should scan the crowd for a moustache-ioed Peyton in the stands, scouting Brady. They’re going to have to chain him up in the basement of Kubiak’s house to stop him from playing Brady and the Pats.

  80. Such trolls, also, kicking a HOFer like Manning when he’s down. Better than Brady, worse than Brady… who cares… they’re both awesome and I hope we’ve not seen their last game against each other.

  81. If he said he would play as long as he could help the team win,why didn’t he take himself out last week? Throwing 4 picks was an embarassment and cost them the game. Anyway,I think Elway’s hiring of Gary Kubiak showed that the handwriting is on the wall. Peyton doesn’t fit into his offense. But Brock does…

  82. Instead, Favre went and floundered around with the Jets, then the Vikes. Ego not salved, reputation sullied, and going out as a loser – just like everyone else who went same path. Odd the way history constantly repeats itself that way.
    ________

    Cool story. It’d be better if it were true. Favre had a good season for the Jets and led them to a winning record. He had the best season of his career with the Vikings while leading them to the NFC title game and narrowly missing the Super Bowl. The only “floundering” he did was in his last season. He didn’t even want to play that season. Coaches and players flew to Hattisburg to talk him into playing. Peyton has also been successful since leaving his original team.

  83. Manning does alot for kids and communities. Google it. Doesn’t want publicity. Wants to help. Hate the game. But not the player

  84. Elway’s and Kubiak’s bet is that the defense wins enough games to enable the Broncos to slide into the playoffs even with Ortweiler. Then maybe Manning’s noodle arm is recovered enough (and his other injuries healed enough) for one last roundup in the playoffs. Their only move.

    Let’s see – his GM got the rules changed to give him a chance to win, he’s ALWAYS been all about his precious stats, he has regularly thrown teammates under the bus, and for all of the GOAT talk he gets he’s been a disaster in nearly all the games that matter most. Even in the year he got that SB title, his playoffs performance sucked and the defense carried him.

    I’d say he’s among the most overrated, self-promoting players in the history of the league.

  86. It’s obvious to me that Kubiak knew the severity of the injury, but played him anyway to get the record.

    I think we all saw Manning’s last game last week – and it was terrible.

    Would be funny if GB signed/activated Favruhva for the game on T’giving night against the Bears to throw for a few yards to get the record back. That would be funny stuff.

    And Favruhva would do it in Wranglers. Real. Comfortable. Jeans.

  87. I just watched TV for 3 hours. I only saw one commercial that didn’t feature Peyton Manning.

    ‘Stayed too long, oh yes you did’ (sung to the tune of the Nationwide commercial).

    Two best sports franchises in the last 20 years – Patriots & Spurs

    Consistent as hell

  89. Just don’t understand you Pats fans. Hey you got everything you wanted, Peyton is out and you can hate on him till the cows come home; Brady seems to be the second coming; so why keep hating?
    Seems to me you would just be lauding your hero.

    Just remember one thing, when Peyton’s gone someone will have to replace him in the hate department. America loves a winner, until they don’t.

  90. dyk peyton manning & tom brady once shared a division as starters for one season (AFC East, 2001)?

  91. he has regularly thrown teammates under the bus.

    I’m waiting for examples of this supposed Manning behaviour. I know about comments after loss to the Steelers (We had protection problems), but it’s only one game.

  92. I’m just a Pats fan that thinks that we’ve been fortunate to watch Brady and Manning all these years. I don’t question Manning’s motivation – but I wouldn’t risk a permanent cervical spine injury for any record. I hope he is able to retire healthy.

  93. Patriots fans say Manning only cares about Records because he has Far Superior Numbers to Brady in almost Every Category!!! That being said I have become a far greater Brady fan for sticking up Goodell’s fat ass!!! What great year for him!
