Do you doubt him?
Manning -- given ample time by his offensive line -- finished 22-of-30 passing for 305 yards and three touchdowns. The Broncos piled up more than 500 yards of total offense against a Saints defense that didn't look like it wanted to be in the building by midway through the third quarter.
Manning now has thrown 14 touchdown passes against only one interception since Week 3. Many wondered if he could be the same player we last saw in Indianapolis. He actually has been better.
The Broncos find themselves in a very good position as we spin forward. Only one team on their remaining schedule currently has a winning record, and the Broncos don't visit the 5-2 Baltimore Ravens until Week 15. Remaining opponents have a combined record of 21-36.
After facing the NFL's toughest stretch of six games to begin the season, the Broncos now have football's easiest schedule in their last 10 weeks. In other words, they're set up for the type of double-digit win season that was customary during Manning's legendary run with the Indianapolis Colts.
Manning hasn't received the credit he deserves for what he accomplished these first two months in Denver. Expect that to change when the Broncos begin to pile up victories down the stretch.
