Denver Broncos Rumors: Future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning should be benched against Browns? What does Kubiak say about this?

Peyton Manning will start against the Browns on Sunday but what if he fails to help his team in the first half?

Are the Broncos ready for a new life without Peyton Manning? The Denver Broncos managed to escape another poor game by future Hall of Famer quarterback Peyton Manning, who threw for two interceptions with no touchdown in a 16-10 win over the Raiders last Sunday.

Manning, with 261 NFL starts, 70, 925 passing yards, 536 touchdowns and 184 wins, has been struggling with the Broncos despite their 5-0 record. Manning is one of the four starting quarterbacks with more interceptions than touchdown passes.

According to Chris Wesseling who writes at, Manning ranks 22nd in QBR, 25th in passer rating and 25th in Pro Football Focus’ quarterback grades. Prior to Week 5, Football Outsiders’ efficiency ratings placed Manning 32nd out of 34 qualifying quarterbacks and ranked the Broncos offense 30th out of 32.

The game against the Raiders on Sunday was Manning’s first time to fail to score a touchdown since 2003. Broncos offense with Manning is averaging 1.7 touchdowns per 60 minutes while 3.4 in last years season.

Denver Broncos’ coach Gary Kubiak was asked if he will be starting Brock Osweiler at the quarterback position and will bench Manning. Kubiak reiterated Sunday night that it’s “not fair” to put the offense’s struggles squarely on Manning’s shoulders. When asked about the potential QB change on Monday, the head coach replied, “No, Peyton’s doing just fine.”

For now, the Broncos are winning and Kubiak is reluctant for a quarterback change. However, if the Broncos record is not that good, he would have benched Manning already.

    Peyton is trying to do to much on his own instead of relying on the team. Also I feel that Peyton relies on one play to much, the quick pass to the out side. Also to many deep passes.

      Manning is only as good as the rest of the offence and they are in bad shape. He can only do so much. The offence is terrible so that makes him terrible. When they get better he will be better Fans need to get over it and support Manning and lay the blame where it should be on the offencive line and on the coaching staff
