2015 NFL Football – Here Comes Manning for the 18th Time

by on March 6, 2015 updated March 6, 2015

 

 

The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning are still together. Manning has agreed to an adjustment to his salary and pronounced himself ready, willing, and able to put together another season. That will make his 18th appearance on an NFL roster, and amazing achievement for any quarterback. What’s even more amazing is that he’s managed to be a highly productive starter the entire time.

There was some speculation that Manning might call it quits but that seems to be the farthest thing from his mind at this point. “I’ve been working real hard, and I’m excited to be back with the Denver Broncos,” Manning said in an interview with a newspaper. “Can’t wait for April 13 to get here when the team can finally come together. I’m excited to get to work and get to know the new coaches and looking forward to trying to make 2015 a special year.”

Manning comes into a new situation and will have to learn a new offense, a situation he sees as no problem. In fact, this offense may allow Manning to pick his spots, relying more on shorter passes and a strong running game to get results. The wear and tear of the long season and the Broncos dependence on his arm, along with a thigh injury, seemed to cause a sharp decline in his performance over the last few weeks of 2014 and into the playoffs. With Manning giving up about $4 million in salary, Denver should be able to add at least one more formidable piece to keep him protected or take some of the focus off of the future Hall of Famer. The offensive line could be a major focus. The Broncos struggled often on running plays and Manning faced more pressure than was good for him.

With his 39th birthday looming, Peyton Manning won’t have many more chances to get another Super Bowl ring. But he is still playing at a high level, with more touchdown passes in any three year stretch in his career. The numbers may drop in 2015, but nobody will mind as long as Denver can catch another Super Bowl victory.
