Gary Kubiak: “Congratulations to my boy Elway” on Peyton Manning

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 19, 2012 – 5:01 pm

Peyton Manning is no longer with the Indianapolis Colts, but he’ll still be on the Texans’ schedule this season. Reports emerged Monday that the four-time MVP has decided to play for the Broncos, whom the Texans play at Denver in 2012.

Manning adds another level of intrigue to an already special trip for Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who spent 20 years with the Broncos as a player and coach. Kubiak was the backup quarterback to John Elway, the Broncos’ current executive vice president of football operations, from 1983-91.

“Well, we’ll know what he’s [Manning] going to do,” Kubiak said on Monday in his office at Reliant Stadium. “It’s great to have him back in football, and I know it’s been exciting the last couple weeks where he was going to end up. He’s a great player, great person, great for the game. Congratulations to my boy Elway. But we’ll get our shot at him, too, so we’ll look forward to it.”

Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair, who was honored with a plaque at the Houston Texans YMCA on Monday, said he could understand why Manning would pick the Broncos.

“I think they’ve got the basis for a good team,” McNair said. “They’ve got a good defense, they’ve got an adequate running game. I think Elway probably had a lot to do with that. They made the playoffs last year, and I think that it enhances their chances to make the playoffs going forward. So, we’ll look forward to playing ‘em in the playoffs.”

The Texans faced Manning 18 times with the Indianapolis Colts from 2002-10. Manning went 16-2 in those games with 5,122 passing yards, 42 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. But, since he sat out last season because of injuries, Manning has yet to face the Texans’ defense under Wade Phillips.

“Well, that’ll be interesting,” McNair said. “That’ll be interesting. We’ve played against Peyton a number of times, and he’s a terrific competitor and a great player, but we also think that we like our chances, too.”

    Both of you are as dense as a square bag o frozen bricks.

    Arian Foster was 5th in reg season rushing (missed 3 games), 1ST in playoff rushing yds, and you seriously want Te-no to run the ball?!?!?!?

    Cause he sure can’t throw deep to Andre Johnson on a timing pattern, and/or dump it off to Arian on the flat that makes him a double threat, keeping defenses honest so you can go deep to Andre.

    Football basics, keep the lace frilled emotions out of my team’s locker room please!
