Peyton Manning had a great 2012 coming off neck surgery and leading the Denver Broncos to the playoffs.
However, coach John Fox thinks with a year under his belt, Manning may even be better. Manning will have another offseason to work with the offense, and all the nuances that comes with Manning at the line of scrimmage pre-snap.
He’ll also have more time for his body to heal and get his strength up in this throwing arm, something he lacked at times in 2012.
Either way, 2012 was the opening act for Manning in Denver, now he wants to bring the house down. Fox commented on Manning going forward:
“Even as far back as almost this time a year ago, his type of injury—a lot was made of the neck and the surgeries and all those things,” Fox said, via Darin Gantt of profootballtalk.com.
“The reality is that it is kind of a nerve situation and it takes a while for nerves to grow. He’s getting better every day. I think he’ll be health-wise, even better this year.”
