Another round of postseason accolades were awarded to the Broncos on Thursday with Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers of America naming tackle Ryan Clady, quarterback Peyton Manning and linebacker Von Miller to its All-Pro team.
Denver’s three selections to the team tied for second-most among all clubs.
Here is what PFW/PFWA had to say about the three Broncos selections:
Tackle Ryan Clady
“Clady had his best season statistically, and he did it in his contract year. Selected to his third career Pro Bowl, he allowed the fewest sacks (one) among tackles who started every game for their team this season. Clady has yet to miss a game in his pro career.”
Quarterback Peyton Manning
“Tightening his lock on a first-ballot ticket to Canton, the 36-year-old Manning was brilliant in his first season in Denver. Directing his team to at least 12 wins for the eighth time in his last nine seasons with the Colts and Broncos, he tied for the league lead with 10 100-plus passer ratings, tied for second in completion percentage (68.6) and became only the second player in league history (Steve Young, 1998) to throw for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in four consecutive games.”
Linebacker Von Miller
“The first player in team history to earn a Pro Bowl berth in each of his first two seasons, Miller has wasted no time becoming one of the league’s most dominant defenders, ranking in the top five in sacks (18½, third in the league), QB knockdowns, QB hurries, tackles for loss (28), run stuffs and forced fumbles (six). In 2012, the second overall pick in the 2011 draft became only the league’s second player since 1994 to record at least 15 sacks, 25 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles in a single season.”
