Quarterback Peyton Manning has a unique advantage within the Broncos’ Dove Valley headquarters. There’s a Hall of Fame quarterback in Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway right upstairs.
The future Hall of Famer hasn’t let his opportunity to take advantage go to waste.
“He and I still talk a lot about playing in the NFL, different teams, different stadiums,” Manning said before offering a glimpse at just how extensive his preparation is. “We talk about playing at home, sometimes little things, the sun sets at certain times at a home game, there’s certain times you want to throw certain routes depending on where the sun sets. Those are little things you can kind of get.”
Manning said it’s “well-documented” how much he respects Elway, as he considers him one of his favorite quarterbacks of all time.
With that in mind, he understands what an asset the Broncos’ football boss can be for the team’s signal callers.
“Playing quarterback at my age, John played, he shared some things that worked for him,” Manning said. “So he’s been a great resource for me as a quarterback and obviously he’s doing a great job leading the organization.”
