Englewood Colorado. Denver Broncos president John Elway told USA Today about Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning "He's throwing the post route and everything well. I went back and looked at film from 2010 to 2009 to get a comparison of Peyton, and he looks to me to be the same guy throwing now that he was then. The ball is coming out quicker all the time the more he gets with the offense and getting to know all of his receivers and tight ends....That's always been his style. He's never been the Nolan Ryan of quarterbacks anyway. He's always throwing the ball with great anticipation and touch."

"Looking at the end run, winning the Super Bowl is our goal. Our owner Pat Bowlen wants to be competitive and Super Bowls. We're a lot closer now than we were. I feel like with Peyton as well as our supporting cast here, we can go out and compete for one, and that's all you can hope for."

Manning signed a five year contract worth $96 million dollars after he played 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. Manning admits his throwing arm is not the same now as it was when he started playing professional football.

Elway sees Manning as sharp as ever before. Elways believes Manning will lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl during his time in Denver.
