He had four solo tackles today, two of those were TFLs. Had another TFL last week. Looks like he's leading the team in that category. Not bad for a DT. Hoping he can keep it up once we start to get into the meat of the schedule.

From: Peyton Manning's Budweiser plugs were a little self-serving

Manning's investment portfolio includes part ownership of two Anheuser-Busch distributors in his native Louisiana; as you probably know, Anheuser-Busch brews Bud.

And in case you think maybe Manning was being paid, perhaps because he very likely is about to retire from the NFL, he made a similar proclamation a couple of years ago after a postseason win (then he wanted Bud Light)

So just as sharing an embrace with pizza impresario "Papa" John Schnatter on the field was something of a business move for Manning (he owns numerous franchises), sharing his Bud craving was too.

Peyton turned winning the Super Bowl into his own self promoting commercial. But, hey, that Cam guy sure is a pompous dick, and Peyton is all about the team.

Only four shots of Old Granddad for the whole empty pineapple? Doesn't matter four shots per glass sounds right.

Correct...left some words out, real job things getting in the way of my 11W time...Pats went undefeated in regular season in 2007.

It's more pass than run.

Seriously where is this trope coming from? Not to personally attack you BuckeyeBoy, but I've seen this in a lot of different places since Saturday, from multiple people.

Year Rush/GM Pass/Gm
2014        46       27.3
2015      40.7       27.6

The bigger problem is that we're not running the ball effectively (3.7 yds/rush vs Hawaii and 4.4 yds/rush vs NIU). Which in turn is putting us in worse 3rd down situations, which is hurting our 3rd down conversion rate, thus running less plays in a game overall.

Just to add to your nitpicking, it also doesn't have the new scoreboard or LED banners and donor signage on the top of the south stands that was installed before the 2012 season. So at least 3 seasons ago.

EDIT: Based on the Penn State logo in the upper right of the scoreboard, it looks like it's from the Penn State game in 2010 which was a 3:30 kick that finished under the lights. A game which included 2 pick sixes of Moxie McGloin.

In response to your third point, now would be a good time to remind everyone of Citrus' "Welcome to 11w" post from just under a week ago. The problem seems to be the vocal minority, however, that didn't take the time to read it.
