Denver Broncos Executive VP of football operations John Elway told USA Today that quarterback Payton Manning looks just as good as he did a few years ago.
“He’s throwing the post route and everything well,” Elway said. “I went back and looked at film from 2010 and 2009 to get a comparison of Peyton, and he looks to me to be the same guy throwing now that he was then.
“The ball is coming out quicker all the time the more and more time he gets with the offense and getting to know all his receivers and tight ends. … That’s always been his style. He’s never been the Nolan Ryan of quarterbacks anyway. He’s always throws the ball with great anticipation and touch.”
I believe once Manning get’s into a nice groove with his new receivers during the regular season, he’ll be just fine.
