Manningmania is here. NFL Network aired live footage of the opening hour of Denver Broncos practice, and Manning looked sharp, albeit in a walk-through practice. He reportedly completed 12 of 14 passes in his first set of 11-on-11 work. The crowd particularly appreciated when Manning took off and ran the ball. (The coaching staff hopes that doesn't happen much when the games start.)
"I love being around young players, but they're all young compared to me," Manning said. "It's humbling sometimes when they tell you they enjoy watching you on ESPN Classic. But it's fun being around these guys."
Really, the video above says more than anything we could write. So enjoy.
This is the story of the NFL in the coming weeks and months. We would like to thank the Football Gods once again for training camp finally being here.
