Broncos speed things up in Manning's second season

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- At times, Peyton Manning looks like he's being fast-forwarded.
No taking most of the play clock to deke defenders into tipping their hand, no surveying the entire field to decipher opponents' intentions.
Just get to the line, take the snap and get rid of the ball in a hurry.
Then, hustle up to the line and do it all again. And again. And again.
The Denver Broncos didn't just steal away Tom Brady's favorite receiver in Wes Welker in free agency, they also adopted the New England Patriots' feverish philosophy in turbocharging their already efficient offense this offseason.
When Adam Gase was promoted from Manning's position coach to offensive coordinator over the winter, he excitedly talked about picking up the pace, and the Broncos have done just that, adding an up-tempo facet to Manning's repertoire.
The Broncos might just be the best team playing fastbreak football this fall, too, what with Manning pushing the pedal and Welker on the other end.
Revving things up this offseason also has prepared Denver's defense for the latest NFL trend.

I believe Peyton can improve on last years numbers. This offense is absurd right now adding Welker. Peyton is getting his strength back and with his game sense I feel he will be really good this year. They should completely destroy their division and by speeding things up you give your team more time to score.
