  • Klee: If Manning is problem - please offer a solution

    DENVER - The Peyton Manning backlash is real, and it is bizarre. There is a noisy faction of the orange populous that truly believes the Broncos are better off without Manning, that the Broncos should move on from the 38-year-old quarterback. No, really. It's out there. At first I assumed these were Raiders fans in Broncos clothing, fed up...
