Quarterback agree vice-president John Elway that a different attitude is needed for the 2013 season.
After losing to the Baltimore Ravens 38-35 in double overtime last season at the AFC Divisional round of the playoffs, it ended what was a dream start to Peyton Manning’s career as a Denver Bronco.
As the team’s off-season workouts begin this year, the 37-year old was quick to agree with the comments made by Vice-President and two-time Super Bowl wining QB of the team John Elway, that a change of attitude is needed to win in 2013.
Speaking on NFL.com, Manning called for the team to change the feeling within the dressing, to something more uncomfortable.
“I know that John Elway wants to sort of set kind of an attitude and an edge around here — maybe a little bit of an uncomfortable atmosphere — which I believe in,” Manning said.
“Last year was good, but it wasn’t great, and we’re looking for that great season and to finish off with a championship season. We have so much work that we have to do.”
The Broncos are in a win-now situation, especially with the age Manning is at, their window to win a Super Bowl is closing every year. A change of attitude may be the way forward, now that the honeymoon period is over for Peyton, the serious work can begin on bringing success to the franchise.
