One thing has become clear during Manning Watch — Twitter is a tough forest to navigate. There is a virtual ton of pundits and experts out there, claiming to know the inner workings of the Denver Broncos‘ visits with Peyton Manning and the Hall of Famer’s mindset in general. Knowing who to trust on the social media monster is half the battle.

Here’s one person on Twitter you can definitely trust — John Elway.

The Broncos’ Executive Vice President of Football Operations posted the following updates regarding the team’s visit and workout with Manning in North Carolina today on Twitter Friday, making it clear that Manning did in fact throw for the Broncos today, and that, while a contract hasn’t been hammered or possibly even discussed, things are moving along:

We enjoyed visiting with Peyton today in N.C. He threw the ball great and looked very comfortable out there.

Watching him throw today was the next step in this important process for our team and Peyton. It was a productive visit and went well.

I find it encouraging that Elway is willing to talk on the record about his visit with Peyton, and think that the fact the Broncos have seen him twice is also an encouraging sign. Today’s developments were encouraging, but we all have to be patient — Manning might decide to take even more time to decide where he wants to play the rest of his career.
