Listening to 102.3 the Ticket this afternoon I heard these Peyton Manning tidbits:

Manning asked for a copy of the Bronco media guide, memorizing facts about his future teammates. When Julius Thomas walked by him in the Bronco facility Manning went up to him and said "Julius, nice to meet you, I'm Peyton Manning." He then pulled Thomas aside and asked if Thomas wanted to work out with him each day. "Yes sir" Thomas replied, and Thomas did work out with Peyton daily until his recent surgery.

Zane Beadles was interviewed. He said 2 days after Peyton signed Manning texted him. "I'm looking forward to playing with you," Peyton texted. Beadles met Manning for the first time in person this week.

Manning asked for books about Bronco team history. Manning called Frank Tripucka personally about wearing #18 to make sure Frank was OK with it, calling him "Mr Tripucka". Had Tripucka declined Manning would have wore #14 or #16.

Manning is often the first in the Broncos practice facility each day and one of the last to leave. He frequently orders out for dinner and shares it with whoever happens to be at the facility with him. The Broncos are considering giving Peyton the security codes to enter and leave the facility since he often is the first one there, and the last one to leave.

Manning asked for the exact dates of the preseason games, and wants to work on the game plan now for each of those contests.

Jake Plummer. Les Shapiro said that Shanahan coached the AFC Pro Bowl team after the 2005 season where Manning was his QB. Shanahan and Manning played golf every day and Shanny was impressed that Peyton was only interested in talking football and offensive strategy for 4 1/2 hours each round. Shanny wished Plummer had the same dedication to the game, and that was a factor in him drafting Jay Cutler that off season.

Maybe my optimism is misguided, but I think that Decker is going to have a real solid year and not drop very many balls. Didn’t he go his entire senior season at Minnesota with only one drop? Hopefully he can get that focus back, because he has shown that he can catch the ball…

My thoughts exactly. After reading that Post article......I can't friggin' wait to seen this guy play for us!

I once read that to work on his (pinpoint) accuracy, Manning would stay late after practice.....put trash barrels about 30-40 yards out.....and throw passes, trying to put the balls in the barrels.

Just like free-throw shooting....with endless repetition....

Decker was on pace for a good year with Orton. I'm not sure why people hate him so much.

There were times when Decker and all of our WRs had the ball hit them in the hands and drop it...multiple times. Seemed like if they weren't wide open they'd drop it. Outside of Lloyd i don't recall any of our WR's making a tough catch in traffic. Sometimes the ball isn't going to be thrown perfect...thats what seperates elite WRs from the rest, they make **** happen!

Tebow had a very good classroom ethic. He just hasn't put it all together yet. You have to think eventually he will get to be at least average as a passer. I know it took Steve Young a few seasons to really settle in as a passer.

In your second sentence, when you say "hated HIM"....."him" could've referred to either Decker or Orton, since both names were in your previous sentence. Furthermore, there was clearly more hate for Orton than Decker (never even realized there was 'hate" toward Decker, to be honest).
Lastly, "him" in the second sentence is an identifier of the more RECENT name in the previous sentence (Orton)....if my English rules serve me correctly.

All that being said.......yeah, I clearly thought you were referring to ORTON!

Comforting we have a leader in place now. Great to have heroic leadership in the last 2 minutes of a game but superbowl winning intentions are set at training camp, in the locker room, in preseason, in regular season, and then closed in the playoffs.

I have little doubt that every player on the team now believes we have a shot. That hasn't been the case since maybe 2005.

The saltine cracker challenge or simply the "saltine challenge" is a competition in which a person has 60 seconds to eat 6 saltines, without drinking anything; all the crumbs must be eaten too.

A 1996 AP story used the challenge to illustrate the competitive nature and persistence of Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Peyton Manning. Having been bet that he couldn't eat the six saltines, Manning attempted them one by one and failed; trying again, he stacked them on top of each other and succeeded. His roommate concluded, "Even something that was a joke, he was out to prove he can do it. He can eat six saltine crackers, and he did. He works out techniques he can do on everything."

I think it wasn't right or left handed, I think it was all about timing and anticipation. You do your receiver a huge favor when you relsease it right before his break, right when he will get greatest separation, and in a place where he won't get leveled by the next defender (usually the Safety). When Orton had time, he put some good touch on his passes, and led the receivers pretty much in stride. Tebow still has a lot to learn there, and his hesitation (then hard delivery) still left receivers in a compromised position (for their own safety). It takes balls to hold onto a difficult catch when a defender is bearing down on you full speed. Would you give up your jaw for a 6 yard catch?

I think it wasn't right or left handed, I think it was all about timing and anticipation. You do your receiver a huge favor when you relsease it right before his break, right when he will get greatest separation, and in a place where he won't get leveled by the next defender (usually the Safety). When Orton had time, he put some good touch on his passes, and led the receivers pretty much in stride. Tebow still has a lot to learn there, and his hesitation (then hard delivery) still left receivers in a compromised position (for their own safety). It takes balls to hold onto a difficult catch when a defender is bearing down on you full speed. Would you give up your jaw for a 6 yard catch?

This is true as well.

I see what you're saying. But GB dumped Faver because they really thought he was no longer good enough to win a Lombardi. Irsay didn't say that, and Irsay didn't want to do axe Manning, but his cap situation and lack of talent overall necessitated a rebuild, and having the Luck pick is unique. Manning seems to accept Balt ... I mean Indy ... did what was best for both sides from a football perspective.

He'd rather have stayed with Luck, but if he can't finish out in Indy, he wants another ring.

Manning is a class act. Hated him(prolly out of jealously) cause of all his checks and hand motions at the line. Sure am getting tired of all the one hit and he's done comments from people, they can be said for any player. He will make every part of our team better, just because everyone will see how much work he will put in and be driven by themselves to do the same.
Training camp can't get here soon enough.

Really? The OT Loss in the NFC Championship is what tipped them off?

Had more to do with Aaron only having a couple years left on his contract and Brett jerking the franchise's chain with the retirement soap opera every year.

Look we all hated the guy for ripping apart our average team in the playoffs over and over. There is no doubt he puts in the mental and physical reps to win. However I am worried about his neck. He is NOT superman....I want a first class defense to help this guy. With that we win it all. Don't go all in Manning and forget the defense or this will not end well......................

The saltine cracker challenge or simply the "saltine challenge" is a competition in which a person has 60 seconds to eat 6 saltines, without drinking anything; all the crumbs must be eaten too.

A 1996 AP story used the challenge to illustrate the competitive nature and persistence of Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Peyton Manning. Having been bet that he couldn't eat the six saltines, Manning attempted them one by one and failed; trying again, he stacked them on top of each other and succeeded. His roommate concluded, "Even something that was a joke, he was out to prove he can do it. He can eat six saltine crackers, and he did. He works out techniques he can do on everything."

Yeah but can he do the cinnamon challenge

Watching Decker struggle in the change over between Orton to Tebow makes me think that the right handed vs left handed thing was a big issue for him and all our WRs outside of Lloyd who has been around the league awhile.

Perhaps, but we shouldn't discount the "accurate passer" vs. "inaccurate passer" theory......

In your second sentence, when you say "hated HIM"....."him" could've referred to either Decker or Orton, since both names were in your previous sentence. Furthermore, there was clearly more hate for Orton than Decker (never even realized there was 'hate" toward Decker, to be honest).
Lastly, "him" in the second sentence is an identifier of the more RECENT name in the previous sentence (Orton)....if my English rules serve me correctly.

All that being said.......yeah, I clearly thought you were referring to ORTON!

However had you noticed his post was in response to another post about Decker, you probably wouldn't have thought it was about Orton.

Last Sunday, the Denver Post ran an article describing the extent to which Peyton Manning prepares---for practices, for games, for tape sessions, for team meetings. Early this week, I received a phone call from a team executive. He asked me if I had read the article. I said, "yes." His response? "That ain't nothin'. You have to see it to believe it." Here are some of the things I've been told about Manning's work habits since his arrival in Denver.

* He's been here four weeks and he's hardly left the building. In fact, he gets there so early and leaves so late, they considered giving him the codes to the alarm system. Manning has spent more time in the complex than any other employee---on the football side or on the business side of the operation.

* He has talked to the team's strength and conditioning coaches about OTHER players' workout schedules. He has told those coaches, "I want their asses here on time. Whenever they say they're going to be here, that's when I want them here." He's making every player accountable.

* BEFORE he signed with the team, he asked for a 2011 Broncos Media Guide. He wanted to memorize the names and faces of every returning player. That way, he would be able to call them by name the first time he saw them. In one of his first few days here, Peyton was engaged in a hallway conversation. Young tight end Julius Thomas walked by. Manning stopped him and said, "you're Julius Thomas, aren't you? My name is Peyton Manning. Nice to meet you." Manning then said, "I want you to know, I'll be here every day, lifting and throwing. Will you be here, too?" Julius Thomas responded with just two words. "Yes, sir." Manning had known the man for, literally, one minute and already had let Julius Thomas know that he means business. This is what John Elway meant when he said of Manning, "a rising tide lifts all boats." Manning already is raising the standards and expectations for individuals and for the organization as a whole.

* Once Manning signed here, he asked for a staff directory. He wanted the names and photographs of every employee in the building. All 200 of them. He is in the process of memorizing all of that information. He believes every employee at Dove Valley is important to the operation and worth acknowledging in a personal manner.

* He has asked the staff to recommend reading material about the organization. He wants to know everything about the franchise---its history, its fans, its successes, its failures.


* Lastly, Manning has already asked for game tape of the Broncos' preseason opponents. He is already studying the defenses of Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona. And the preseason is still four months away.

This is what you're getting Broncos fans. This is how the great ones become (and remain) great. By practicing with Manning the last three weeks, Eric Decker has already learned (and told us at 102.3 ESPN) that Peyton is a perfectionist. J.D. Walton says Manning is the smartest football player he's ever encountered and he can't wait to play with him. Yes, that rising tide IS lifting all boats. And we haven't even started OTAs or mini-camps yet. Be excited, Broncos fans. Be very excited.

Why do you think that?

Everyone who has actually broke down film with Tebow (Gruden, Mayock, McDaniels, Belichick, Meyer, Marriucci) all say he's dedicated in the film room and has a great understanding.

Big difference is that Manning was raised by a former pro QB to be a traditional pocket passer from day one and with the help of said former pro QB made all of the right choices to develop into an elite passer.

Tebow meanwhile was a phenomenal athlete from day one and consistently went to situations where people would just put him on the field and let him win them games (including last year in Denver). No one has ever stressed development of his fundamentals except Tebow on his own time, which isn't nearly enough when everyone else just wants you to put wins on the board.

This, coupled with the fact that left handed throwers tend to develop later (a baseball truism that holds up if you look at left handed throwers like Steve Young, Mike Vick, etc. most found accuracy later in their careers).

I'm quite happy to have Manning and to see the Broncos back in the hunt for titles as soon as 2012, but lets keep an honest perspective here. If Tebow had the kind of FO support most first round QBs get he'd be showing the same kind of work ethic and holding his teammates to a similar level of accountability. He was never given the reigns of this franchise like Manning has been from week one. He was never allowed to make this "his team". Even despite that he rallied the org. at a 1-4 start and led them into the playoffs and the first playoff win in too long.
