John Elway loves how his offensive coordinator kept Denver’s high-octane offense floored all season but quickly put the brakes on his own football future with the Broncos in the midst of a Super Bowl run.
Adam Gase’s goal since taking over as Denver’s offensive coordinator a year ago was putting the Broncos’ offense in hyper drive, giving Peyton Manning the call as quickly as possible and getting the heck out of his way.
The Broncos were rumored to be going after pass-rushing specialist Jared Allen of the Minnesota Vikings, but nothing formulated.
The ESPN documentary “The Book of Manning” shows a new generation of football fans that Peyton and Eli Manning got their athleticism and acumen from good bloodlines as well as their strong work ethic.
The Minnesota Vikings traded away four draft picks to move to select Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round. Patterson has already impressed the Vikings coaching staff with his learning ability, speed, size and athleticism. The former Tennessee Volunteer could play a few different roles for the Vikings as a rookie in 2013.
While both Peterson and Manning played phenomenally this season, it’s Manning’s leadership that sets him apart and should win him a record fifth NFL MVP award.
With Von Miller sidelined with an injury the Denver Broncos turned to Mario Haggan to fill in and he didn’t disappoint by delivering the game of the season.
The Denver Broncos have been on a roll and the defense has been playing stellar. In the last three wins the defense has held opponents to 9.6 points a game.
Minnesota Vikings running backs coach Eric Bieniemy says he’s accepted an offer to return to Colorado to serve as the Buffaloes’ offensive coordinator.
