Default Re: Usually I got no beef with Denver, but this year, I REALLY hope we pound them

See what I mean. Not 'How will Denver cope without Tebow' 'John Fox will get his first game with a new conventional offence' 'Steelers out for revenge' IT'S ALL ABOUT MANNING!!!

For the Steelers, this season will start where last season ended: In Denver. But the opposing quarterback will change.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos will host the Steelers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football in Week One, according to a report from Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

It’s no surprise that the Denver debut of Manning will be a nationally televised prime time game. Manning is the highest-profile free agent in NFL history, and there will be huge interest in seeing his first game with the Broncos.

For Steelers safety Ryan Clark, that will mean his 2012 season will start a week late: Clark has had health problems related to Denver’s altitude, and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has insisted he won’t permit Clark to play in Denver.

The Steelers probably aren’t thrilled that they’ll have to return so quickly to Denver, the place where they had their hearts broken with Tim Tebow’s overtime touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas last season. And Manning’s presence means the fact that Tebow isn’t there anymore isn’t much consolation to the Steelers.
