Peyton Manning has impressed offensive teammates with improved throwing power compared to last season.
Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning has impressed his wide receiver corps with much improved arm strength compared to last season, as the team hope to make another serious run at winning a Super Bowl.
As the team continue with their off season workouts, wide receiver Eric Decker was quick to point out the increased arm strength that Manning had developed over the off-season.
Speaking on the Denver Broncos website, Decker said there was a noticeable difference when he was reeling in passes from the veteran QB.
“We worked out at Duke in March or April and I definitely felt like he had more zip on the ball,” Eric Decker said.
“I think he’s come back stronger.”
If the receivers believe that Manning will come back stronger next season, then opposing defences will have trouble stopping the 37-year old.
Last season, Manning completed 400 passes for a total of 4,659 yards and 37 touchdowns, leading the Broncos to a 13-3 record and an AFC West title.
Once again the Broncos have been instilled as a big favourite to win the Super Bowl, and if Manning can continue his progression in returning back to his pre-injury form, then there is no reason the Broncos can’t win their first Super Bowl since 1998.
