"Mr. T" is Laurence Turead, "Howard Cohen" is actually Howard Cosell, and "Pot Roast" is really Terrance Knighton, a defensive tackle with the Denver Broncos.

Darin Gantt, profootballtalk:
According to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post, Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was so pumped after yesterday’s win over the Chargers that he was ready to proclaim that they wouldn’t lose again.

“I don’t care if New England doesn’t lose again. I don’t care where we have to play. I don’t care who our opponent is. We’re not going to be satisfied until we hoist that trophy. So if we’ve got to go to New England [in the playoffs] and win somewhere we’re not used to winning, we’re going to make it happen.”

With Denver QB Peyton Manning under the weather against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, the Broncos struggled on offense. With three minutes 22 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Peyton appeared to injure his right thigh after being hit while throwing to WR Emmanuel Sanders. Three plays later, Manning was injured again, while trying to block for RB C.J. Anderson near the goal line.

The Broncos' backup QB, Brock Osweiler replaced Peyton Manning throwing two incompletions, and intentionally grounding a third pass. Denver did not take a chance from the San Diego one yard line, and settled for a 19 yard field goal from K Connor Barth.

Those few offensive plays without QB Peyton Manning were painful to watch. Denver has struggled in the red zone on the road with only a 39.1% TD ratio. At home, the rate is 82.7%. Without Peyton Manning, the red zone will be a foreign country.

The one the Broncos call "Pot Roast" more than made up for it with a bold post-game guarantee. The Denver defense had another solid game with two interceptions, and held the Chargers to only 56 yards rushing. The stellar Denver defense appears ready for the playoffs. A much improved running game has the Broncos looking forward to big games in January and February.

A bold prediction from Terrance "Pot Roast" Knighton won't carry any weight if Peyton Manning doesn't come out of the tunnel for the second half. The alternative is unwatchable.
