"He'll raise the offense to a level where they are consistent week after week after week," said Fisher, who in his 17-year tenure as Titans/Oilers coach was a divisional opponent for Manning's Colts from the league's realignment in 2002 until Fisher and the Titans parted ways after the 2010 season.

"He eliminates a lot of mistakes, and they'll score a lot of points week after week after week. He kind of changes the defensive philosophy (the Broncos) will face because all of a sudden (defenses) aren't rushing the passer against Denver or protecting a lead.

We've always said it's like preparing for one of those quarterbacks in a video game. You just can't fool him. He'll move fast and get the ball to the right people."

"This is an unbelievable opportunity for Denver," said Shanahan, who met Manning during the quarterback's free-agent visit to Denver earlier this month. "How often can you get a guy for no compensation who's arguably one of the best players ever to play the game. You've got a good feel that he's going to be ready to go full speed. He's going to open up all kinds of opportunities for them to do an awful lot of things on offense."
