The Indianapolis Colts plan to honor its former and current Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning during their Week 7 game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Details of the tribute have yet to be finalized.

The Indianapolis Colts plan to honor Peyton Manning when the quarterback and his Denver Broncos are in town for their Week 7 game.

This is what Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA Today Sports' Jarrett Bell on Oct. 9. The team is "planning a tribute for Manning to acknowledge his remarkable contributions during 14 seasons with the franchise," per Bell. 

Even though details of the tribute are still hazy, Irsay says the bottom line is it will be a great one. 

"We're going to have a great tribute to him. It's going to be something where you go into it wanting to have a lot of fun, where you love Peyton as a Colt fan, but now we're competing against him.

"For this one day, we're competitors. You look for a great game and that's the main thing.

"It'll (fans' reception for Manning) be tremendous. They will cheer, as deserved. When he comes back on the field, I think there will be a boisterous standing ovation, as there should be. He means so much to our franchise.

"It's going to be crazy, but mostly it'll be fun. I hope it's just a great game." 

As a writer covering the Broncos, the Denver Post's Mike Klis says the tribute "may be tricky because it's difficult to believe Manning would break from his pregame routine to watch a video montage of himself."

For this, Klis suggests introducing Manning along with the rest of the staring lineup, similar to what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did for John Lynch in 2004 and the Philadelphia Eagles for Brian Dawkins five years later. 

Manning was drafted first overall by Indianapolis in 1998. He led the Colts to 11 postseason appearances in 13 seasons, including two Super Bowls in the 2006 and 2009 NFL seasons.

The Colts wound up being Super Bowl XLI champions when they beat the Chicago Bears 29-17 on February 4, 2007 with Manning under center. 

He is off to his best regular-season start in years. He has already passed for 1,884 yards for 20 touchdowns and just one interception through Week 6 of the 2013 NFL season

Manning's 75.8 percent completion rate and 136.4 QB rating are both career bests, helping the Broncos to a 5-0 start.

Heading into our final preseason game, CH74 once again breaks down the performance of the Denver Broncos starting and second team offensive lines. As he notes, analyzing the twos was some "tough sledding" during the Houston game, but the starters are showing good chemistry. The big headlines out of Saturday's game against the Texans were mostly about receivers who made big plays and Peyton Manning getti ...

Why Nobody Is Winning the Floyd Mayweather-50 Cent Beef

Aug 26 2014 4:58pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The ongoing feud between rapper 50 Cent and boxer Floyd Mayweather hit a new low over the past few days. Once virtually inseparable, these two guys now trade verbal jabs as if they’re auditioning for roles on whatever edition of Bravo’s Real Housewives series is coming up next. If you missed the latest Internet shenanigans, it all started when 50 Cent hijacked the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge craze to taunt Mayweather. That’s right. 50 Cent used a vi ...

Can kicker Mitch Ewald be the Next Man Up for the Broncos?

Aug 26 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

Something was clearly on the minds of the Denver Broncos kickers Saturday night, and they were not thinking good thoughts. Against the Houston Texans Saturday, Matt Prater was clearly off. Prater was guilty of taking chunks of the turf with him during his successful 32-yard field goal in the first quarter, making ugly PATs, and missing a 49-yard field goal. A 49-yard field goal certainly isn't a ‘gimme', but it ...

Fantasy football enthusiasts learned quite a bit in the past week or so. We learned the rookie quarterbacks won't be cracking the starting lineup to start the season. We learned that it's always wise to have your fantasy drafts after the third week of the preseason, with ESPN reporting that Sam Bradford is lost for the season and The Associated Press noting (via Fox Sports) that Cam Newton is in question for Week 1. We learn ...

Eric Decker Will Be a Fantasy Football Steal as Focal Point of Jets Offense

Aug 25 2014 11:03pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Eric Decker's offseason move from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets was fantastic for his bank account, but the jersey swap did him no favors in the eyes of fantasy football prognosticators. ESPN.com ranked Decker the No. 32 wide receiver and projects him to amass 64 receptions for 947 yards and six touchdowns. And the Washington Post's Gene Wang gave his take on Decker's situation in early Au ...

Michael Vick Not Starting Is the NFL's Biggest Mystery

Aug 25 2014 10:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Michael Vick may be old, currently 34 years of age, but his skills have not declined. He showed he is still one of the fastest quarterbacks in the NFL in the preseason. He also consistently wows coaches with his arm strength in practice. Dom Cosentino of NJ.com observed that Vick's deep ball is still "breathtaking." So why is Vick a second-string player when there are QB-needy teams out there? Veteran players who boast eight seasons of starting ...
