With the start of NFL training camps, people are still questioning the health of Broncos QB Peyton Manning. Hey, where have you non-believers been? The guy took the Broncos to a 13-3 record in 2012, it sure looks like he was able to grip the football pretty well from where I was watching.
If Manning was any healthier, he would have taken the team to a 16-0 record. The guy threw for over 4,600 yards in 2012. He never looked like he was struggling and he never looked like he was having problems with his throwing arm.
Manning was able to take some hits and in true Peyton Manning style he popped right back up and played the game the way you would expect Peyton Manning to play. He is one of the best leaders in the history of the National Football League.
Doctors cleared Manning to play last season and you better believe before Elway and the Broncos paid him close to 100 million dollars they made sure he was in good health and ready to play football. How long is it going to take for people to stop saying he isn’t healthy?
The guy is healthy and although it is going to be tough to repeat the performance the Broncos had in 2012, I expect Manning to lead them back into the play-offs. The guy is just too good not to. The Broncos are one of the team’s coming into the 2013 season as a favorite to win it all.
None of the odds makers are questioning the health of Peyton Manning and it is time for others to stop questioning it too. Manning is in good health. You can take that to the bank.
