Broncos aren’t holding back with Peyton Manning
Question of the Day
He and quarterbacks coach Adam Gase watched Indy’s 2010 game films during the Broncos‘ pursuit of Manning, who signed a five-year, $96 million deal with Denver in mid-March after his release from the Colts.
Then, they sat down with Manning and sought his input.
“The first thing he said to us was, `Hey listen, you guys have a system in place. I want to learn your system but also have the flexibility to do a number of the things that we’ve done for the last 14 years in Indy,’” McCoy recounted.
“And hey, I’d be an idiot if I didn’t listen to him.”
“No. I’m still the offensive coordinator and I’ve still got to do a job of preparing the football team every week with the rest of our staff,” McCoy said, “and let’s plan together and listen to the players and do what we do best.”
That means more passes and fewer handoffs or keepers.
Manning is known as a coach on the field, often changing plays at the line of scrimmage after deciphering the defense.
“This is the type of player you want to coach,” he said. “(I’m) very fortunate. These types of players don’t come around very often, so we’re going to all take advantage of it.”
