"As long as he can contribute to the team, as long as he can go out there and contribute and produce and put more into the team than he's taking out, he's going to play football," Miller said.
"There are still so many things he can do for the Denver Broncos. We can win a Super Bowl with Peyton," he added. "I think that's the only thing that matters. To win a Super Bowl we need Peyton Manning and I think that he's going to be able to play at a high level. It's Peyton Manning. Whatever it is he needs to do, he's going to do it. That's one position that I'm just not worried about. I definitely think he has control over the whole situation. "
While he faded down the stretch last season, Manning still compiled 4,727 yards and 39 touchdowns. We expect new coach Gary Kubiak to lean heavily on his running game, with a deep, young backfield to take some of the pressure off Manning throughout the year.
