Manning looks the same, but he & Elway know better

BY foxsports • September 14, 2012

Peyton Manning looked as though nothing had changed after sitting out last season because of a neck injury. Don't be fooled, though, says the Broncos quarterback - plenty is different.

And not just the horse on his helmet.

Manning insists he's still searching for a comfort zone in Denver and figures his transition after 14 seasons in Indianapolis will take all season. Same with his rehab from the nerve injury that caused weakness in his throwing arm and forced him to miss all of last season.

Broncos boss John Elway agrees, telling The Associated Press that Manning's arm strength is ''probably not where he wants it to be. I don't know if it'll ever be where he wants it to be, but to me, it's plenty adequate right now.''
