Peyton Manning likes compliment from Thomas
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas said quarterback Peyton Manning's arm is getting stronger, and Manning is excited to hear that.

"I like having that feedback," Manning said. "I can learn a lot off of that. I do the same thing for receivers. I tell receivers, 'Wow, you're really coming out of the stance, I'm having to throw the ball a lot sooner to keep you from outrunning.' ... Any time a player gives you feedback, I take that seriously and hopefully that means making some progress."

Improved Peyton Manning could play three more years
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Despite being 38 years old, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is "playing the best football of his professional life," reports the Denver Post.

"Am I better? I am a different quarterback, I think," Manning said. "Am I throwing 60-yard passes downfield throughout the game? No. But I like to kid that I can throw a really accurate 10-yard pass. A pretty good 20-yard pass. And if I get really crazy, maybe the occasional 47-yard pass."

The report says Manning is likely to keep playing through the 2016 season, when his five-year contract with the Broncos expires. 

"Anytime you sign a five-year contract — it's really five one-year deals in many ways — I think that needs to be your goal," Manning said. "The team made plans to where they want a quarterback for this long so they can then fill spots here and there. That's what you try to do. You understand that when you get to this age — and John (Elway) understands."

Peyton Manning: I'm not 100 percent yet
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who threw an NFL-record 55 touchdowns last season, said on the "Late Show with David Letterman" that he's not back to where he was before his 2011 neck surgery, reports NFL.com.

"I'm not 100 percent compared to what I was before my surgery, but I have made strides each season and this year felt a lot better than the year before," he said. "But these nerves just go at their own pace. It's not like it's going to have this immediate recovery one day."

Manning said his accuracy did not return immediately following the surgery.

"It was weak and I lost awareness of my arm in space, a proprioception issue," he said. "So I just use to sit in front of a mirror and go through my throwing motions, trying to get the feel back the way I always thrown before. I was trying to throw to some receivers, so I would throw to you and the ball would go (points finger) there. That was very scary."

Manning, 38, is entering his 17th season.

Could Peyton Manning throw less in 2014?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Peyton Manning might be asked to throw less so "the offense can be more," ESPN speculated on Thursday. Manning threw 659 passes last season, completing 450 of them (68.3 pct.) for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. The yardage and touchdowns are NFL records. 

The thought process behind Manning being asked to throw less is that it would accentuate the run game and give the offense (read: Manning) more of an opportunity to build confidence in the running backs, namely Montee Ball.

No one on the Broncos has come out and suggested Manning will throw less. He still passed 583 times in 2012, seventh-most that year. Expect Manning to still throw plenty in 2014.

Peyton Manning excited for Emmanuel Sanders
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning recently spent time working out at Duke University with some of his receivers, including newest addition Emmanuel Sanders. Manning said "it was good to get some good work with him." 

Sanders is expected to replace the departed Eric Decker, and Manning said they have a lot of work to do.

"I'm excited about playing with him," Manning said.
