Manning: Broncos must start over in 2014


With the offseason conditioning program starting for the Denver Broncos on Monday, the team will try to wipe away the memories of their Super  Bowl thrashing at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.

Quarterback Peyton Manning will be at the forefront of that effort.

Earlier today, Manning talked about what it will take for the Broncos to build on a mostly successful 2013. According to the QB, it all start with letting go off the past.

“You have to move forward,” Manning said. “You have to kind of re-establish your identity of the 2014 team. The 2013 team, it was a good season in a lot of ways. There is no question it did not end the way we wanted it to but we have to find a way to build off that and take a step further – try to finish. There is no question you have to kind of start over again and re-establish the chemistry on this team with all these new players.”

Some of the new talent Denver has gained through free agency should definitely help the process, but so will the return of several injured starters who were forced to watch their team go down in flames on that not so super Sunday.
