Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made an appearance with Dave Logan on AM 850 KOA on Tuesday and asked Broncos fans to be more quiet when they’re on offense this season.
“When we’re on the field on offense – I love our fans’ excitement – but if we can just find that controlled noise level,” said Manning, via Broncos.com. “I believe we are going to go for it on some fourth downs this year and maybe not cheering when we’re going for it on fourth down – wait and see and if we get it, cheer then. To me, it’s a hard thing. These fans have so much enthusiasm, but for a receivers’ standpoint, you’d love to have that home field advantage where you wouldn’t have to signal at home.”
Manning even has an idea how to help things improve.
“I don’t know, maybe there’s a leader in each section in the stands, we’ll take some voting polls, have a campaign,” Manning said. “But that’s what you want, a guy to say, fourth-and-1, they’re going for it – I don’t know if that’s possible, I don’t know how to get that message relayed, but any help we can get out there from Broncos fans, we’ll take.”
