The Denver Broncos are getting their first taste of the hurry-up-at-altitude offense that Peyton Manning will unleash on the NFL this fall if everything keeps going well with his surgically repaired neck.
Although the installation of the Broncos’ new offense won’t happen until summertime, Manning and his receivers are getting to know each other during the team’s voluntary workouts this month.
Now, it’s all about the fast-paced switcheroo style, including healthy doses of the no-huddle, that’s the basis of Manning’s maniacal motions at the line of scrimmage as he deciphers defenses.
Coach John Fox spoke at Manning’s introductory news conference last month about how excited he was to have such an accomplished and cerebral quarterback running the no-huddle at Mile High.
“I’ve said all along, from having had to compete here, it might be the best home-field advantage in the NFL,” Fox said, “because, on an NFL travel schedule, you don’t have time to acclimate to altitude.”
It's just one of the many changes that we'll see in Denver this season. If Manning's neck holds up, the Broncos offense has a chance to explode in 2012.
