A medicinal marijuana dispensary in Colorado has named a strain of weed after the Denver Broncos' record-setting quarterback, Peyton Manning.

A Peyton Manning brand of marijuana?

Don't look now, but a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Colorado has named its strain of weed after the Denver Broncos record-setting quarterback, per the New York Daily News

"The Manning Strain -- Chem 91 SFV OG Kush -- is described as offering 'The best of both worlds, a Uplifting, Happy, Euphroric, thought provoking Sativa,'" according to the report. It also adds it was especially manufactured for MS, anxiety, nausea and headaches. 

A dispensary employee told the New York Daily News the brand name shouldn't come as a shock. 

"That happens all the time. You can grow anything and name it anything you want. Dispensaries will have the same strain but name it different things." 

Matt Ferner of the Huffington Post notes Colorado residents voted for the recreational use of marijuana for individuals 21 and older in November. On the other hand, the NFL has a strict drug policy which forbids its players from consuming the said substance. 

Just last Thursday, Manning also grabbed headlines for his seven touchdown passes with no interceptions in a 49-27 opening day win over the Super Bowl XLVII champions, the Baltimore Ravens.  

The last quarterback who pulled off the same feat was Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants on October 28, 1962, per NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Halloween is a pretty amazing holiday, but certain behaviors would just be weird at a different time in the year. Can you imagine asking a random stranger for candy in the middle of the summer? Or randomly dressing up in a superhero costume on some random day in the spring (Comic-Con attendees are obviously the exception)? Or decorating your yard with skeletons and witches for Christmas? The point is, some activities are best done on certain days or alongside certain activities. Halloween p ...

The most interesting part was his discussion of the secondary, both in terms of injuries, and adjustments once players are healthy. We've got a transcript for you. Does it look like you're going to have LB Patrick Willis back in your defense this week? "It's questionable right now." Going back over that Broncos game, do you wipe aw ...

Darrelle Revis Once Again Making Dominance Look Easy

Oct 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Darrelle Revis is once again challenging receivers at the line of scrimmage, playing with leverage and showing the closing speed that has him back in the mix as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. Today, let’s break down the tape on Revis and focus on the technique that is allowing the veteran to win one-on-one matchups in the New England Patriots defensive schemes. After doing a four-game study (Bengals, Bills, Jets, Bears), here are my notes on Revis as the Pa ...

Detroit Lions Reversing Old Fortunes, Are Legit Contender in NFC

Oct 30 2014 6:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Don't look now, but these aren't your same old Detroit Lions anymore. After decades of futility—which include zero Super Bowl championships and zero playoff victories since 1991—it appears as if the worm has finally turned. A magical Motown metamorphosis is in progress, and it signifies an evolution from the hunted to the hunter. The old Lions would regularly snatch defeat from the jaws of victory—usually in horrifying fashion—leaving their great fans in a perpetual state ...
