According to Mark Klszla of the Denver Post, in 2012 the Denver offense moved quickly, but they are sure to move faster in the future. Only the New England Patriots run more plays run in a game, quarterback Peyton Manning wants to kick it up a notch and keep defenses reeling. Manning could be the original architect of the hurry up offense; he ran it in Indianapolis before the Patriots took it and put it on hyper drive. It’s Manning’s quick reads that make the offense fast and if the receivers can adapt to a faster pace, the Broncos offense could be lethal come fall. Another facet that will help that transition is the acquisition of former Patriots receiver Wes Welker, who has the inside knowledge of the New England offense. "I think we averaged something like 68 plays per game last season," said Manning, feigning not to know the exact number, in the same way the smartest kid in class plays a little dumb for the benefit of C+ students like me in the room. “For whatever reason, our offense plays better the faster we go. I think that was clear cut last season. The receivers liked it; they got into a rhythm,” Manning said. “Anything we can do as an offense to build off that, anything we can do to make us more efficient as an offense, that’s what we’re looking to do.”
