Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sat down with DenverBroncos.com and told them that his workouts with his teammates have been very rewarding so far this offseason and he likes the progress he sees.
“These workouts, they’re so rewarding,” Manning said. “You don’t feel it, necessarily, right now, but you know it’s going to pay dividends in the fall. When there’s a third-and-5 and there’s a pass pattern you complete to Eric Decker, and you say, ‘We worked on that back in April and May, and that time we put in was worth it because it came on a critical third-down conversion or a touchdown pass.’ I’ve seen that first-hand over the course of my career, that offseason work makes a big difference come fall. You can’t just show up in September and expect to be successful, expect to win games. And so this offseason work is critical. I’ve enjoyed the time, getting to know these receivers, they’re kind of getting to know me. It’s a marathon now, no question about it. It’s not a sprint. We do have some time, and the more we can do with it the better off we’re going to be.”
I’m sure the players Manning is working with have never been through the type of workout they’re currently going through. At the end of the day, it will go a long way in helping the Broncos to try to get back to the playoffs.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
