MIKE ADAMS' EYES WIDENED. SO DID CHAMP BAILEY'S. Their minds were suddenly, simultaneously occupied by the same thought.



This ball is mine ...



The veteran safety and the Canton-bound cornerback share 23 years of NFL experience and have a combined 62 career interceptions. Adams has played for the Browns and 49ers, Bailey for the Redskins, and now they're together on the Broncos. Their assignment during this particular session of minicamp was simple -- make the afternoon of 25-year-old receiver Eric Decker as miserable as possible.



"We knew what was coming," Adams recalls. "We knew the play. We knew the route. We knew where the ball was going, and we were both there when it got there. What happened next was ... it wasn't human. It was our introduction to Peyton Manning."


Great read, catch the rest here:

That is a fu8cking great article, and even if Manning to Denver turns out a bust this kind of training to Oz and for all the WRs and DBs is priceless.

Manning will bring great things to Denver whether he is here or not.

Pretty much the way it left me!:thumbsup:

I especially enjoyed: When pushed about his two new young deep threats, he smiles and adds: "Yeah, I might be pushing them a bit more. But only because I see their potential. It's scary."

I'm totally down if Peyton is game. This is a team on the rise for the next few years.

Thanks for the article link Dutch. Great read.

Always respected Manning's game but loathed his ability to literally destroy the Broncos every time they faced each other. Almost seemed effortless with almost an air of pretentiousness.

Never thought I could cheer for the guy. But now getting more of an insight of how much he is a student of the game and how great a teammate he is, I definitely have a deeper respect for the guy.

After kicking our arse for years, I'm glad hes on our side for a change.

this.

except i knew he was a good guy when he was willing to pay a fine in order to wear hightops in honor of Johnny Unitas passing away. i just hated that he was so good against us. and so good for a franchise that i've despised since they were stolen from Baltimore in the middle of the night by a drunk, obnoxious Chicago lawyer.

Mods, could someone just delete this? Didn't realize it was a repost.

I'll find the other thread and merge them.
