Can Peyton Manning Improve on his 2012 numbers?

Broncos speed things up in Manning's second season
By ARNIE STAPLETON (AP Pro Football Writer) | The Associated Press – 6 hours ago

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.

With the offensive weapons the Broncos have, someone will be open and able to make a play. They're gonna have a respectable run game, whether it's Ball or McGahee or someone from that group, meaning defenses are going to have to stay honest on those WRs. With someone open, the limiting reactant is gonna be Peyton and whether he can make the pass. To be perfectly honest, thats a scary thought. Peyton is Peyton. I think he can easily eclipse last year's numbers.

Peyton Manning now in search of a center to snap him the ball

Peyton Manning is considered a real good quarterback. Some even say he's great.

But he still needs someone to snap him the ball.

Suddenly, this has become a big problem for the Broncos. Dan Koppen was carted off the practice field Sunday with a torn ACL.

Koppen was the Broncos' starting center last year after J.D. Walton went down with a dislocated left ankle. When Walton suffered a setback with his injury this summer, Koppen was re-signed.
