The fans in Denver are quite the loud bunch. And maybe Broncos fans are too loud? That's what Peyton Manning is jokingly floating out there these days anyway. Manning speaking to AM 850 KOA in Denver on Tuesday said that he wouldn't be all that upset if Broncos fans toned it down a little bit when the team was on offense especially if they were going for it on fourth down. “When we're on the field on offense -- I love our fans' excitement -- but if we can just find that controlled noise level" Manning said. "I believe we are going to go for it on some fourth downs this year and maybe not cheering when we're going for it on fourth down – wait and see and if we get it cheer then. To me it's a hard thing. These fans have so much enthusiasm but for a receivers' standpoint you'd love to have that homefield advantage where you wouldn't have to signal at home.” This is such a fine line to walk and it's guaranteed to tick off a few Broncos fans. As Gregg Rosenthal pointed out at NFL.com Manning had Colts fans "trained like prize show dogs" by the end of his tenure in Indianapolis. They knew when to be loud when to be quiet and it was all based on what Manning was operating out on the field. And it really is important that things are quiet when the Broncos quarterback is orchestrating his offense down the field. Manning has some ideas to make the whole "please get quieter" process a little fan-friendly too. (Of course he does.)
