This will be Adam Gase’s first chance to call plays in the NFL, and it will be with Peyton Manning. He might as well hold up a sign that says, “i’m with him.” Gase started in the NFL in 2005 with the Detroit Lions as an offensive assistant. He was in Detroit from 2005-2007, and then changed teams as an offensive assistant with San Francisco in 2008 before coming to Denver. Gase has been with the Broncos since 2009, as the wide receivers coach for two seasons under Josh McDaniels. In 2011, he was moved to the quarterbacks coach position, working with Kyle Orton, and then Tim Tebow before working with Peyton Manning in 2012. “I absolutely think I’m ready and I’m not nervous about calling plays,” Gase said Thursday, in comments distribute by the team. “You have one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time as your quarterback — I’m excited. I’m thrilled to be able to have that opportunity,” according to Rich Kurtzman of examiner.com. “We’re looking to go pedal to the metal and play as fast as possible and be aggressive and score as many points as possible every game.” “Peyton Manning wants to be coached,” Gase said. “He does a great job of, when you give him a play, if it needs to be better, he does a great job of putting you in that play. It’s the best situation possible for a guy calling plays. If you call something and it’s not good, he fixes it and puts you in a better play. That’s what he does that’s so great that I don’t think people admire enough. That’s why you don’t see a lot of bad plays with him.” “When he asks questions, you’re sitting there going, ‘Gosh, that’s a great question.’ You’re sitting there thinking, you almost want to say to yourself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that? That’s a great question to ask.’ You’ve got to find answers. If you don’t know the answers that second, you better go investigate and find out what the answers are.”     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
