The Denver Broncos will definitely be looking to improve on a 2014 season that was ultimately very disappointing.
The Broncos limped out of the playoffs after being taken apart by Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, with nothing going right for them and Peyton Manning actually looking like a 39-year old under center.
However, thankfully for Broncos fans, Manning is apparently looking great ahead of the 2015 NFL season.
Manning Looking Great
David Cutcliffe, the Duke head coach who was Manning’s college offensive coordinator at Tennessee and who still trains Manning in the offseason, says that when they worked out together this spring, Manning looked as great as he normally does.
“I thought he looked really healthy. We had talked about nutrition, about sleep, about recovery. He’s really so, so smart. So brilliant and so disciplined. But there’s another level, always. I thought he looked really fit," Cutcliffe told Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.
Cutcliffe would go on to praise the fitness work that Manning has put in, trying to do all he can in strength and conditioning to offset the advances of father time on his body.
"I thought his core was great. I watched him train inside, and he looks good and he’s strong where he needs to be strong, and he didn’t show anything at all from the quad. And we talked a lot about flexibility.”
Cutcliffe says Manning never stops impressing him with his work ethic and that even when entering his eighteenth season in the National Football League.
“I’m amazed at times,” Cutcliffe said. “We’re doing this in an indoor facility with nobody watching and I watch his focus, his intensity, the absolute desire for every rep to be as good as it can be — that hunger is pretty amazing at this stage. But that’s what successful people do.”
Peyton Manning will be down-right desperate to have another successful season and avenge his playoff losses in the last two years. Manning needs that second Super Bowl for his legacy, and this might be his last chance to do it.
