DENVER -- Week 2 and the Denver Broncos put another game in the win column.  Like the home opener against the Ravens, it wasn’t pretty.

The question fans are asking about the Bronco’s win is if quarterback Peyton Manning is playing his game or coach Gary Kubiak's.

We set up a one-day-only sports talk call in show at the station.  The first question: Is Manning playing Manning’s game?

Caller: “First half I seen him, you know, not doing so good.”

Caller: “We’re handing the ball off.  We’re not going anywhere with the running game.”

Caller: “Peyton Manning didn’t have such a great game.”

Fans noticed a change in Manning’s performance in the second half.

Caller: “Peyton’s like, I’m gonna do the shotgun and start throwing down the field, playing his game, he did real good because we know what he can do.  It’s like the quick offence.  I was really happy to see that.”

Caller: “I think if we go back to Manning’s system I think they’re gonna be a little more successful.”

The general consensus was: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
