Eric Decker Thrilled With Peyton Manning


Wide receiver Eric Decker went on 102.3 The Ticket in Denver to talk about the state of the Denver Broncos. In the interview, he compared having Peyton Manning in town vs. Tim Tebow.

“Tebowmania. Yeah, obviously he’s earned the right to have conversations about him. I guess at the same time, to be honest with you it is nice just to kind of focus back on football, and we talk football and there’s not — there’s still a lot of excitement here with the football. I mean, he is a great teammate. I respect him greatly. But again, like you were saying, a lot of the focus right now is on football, is really talking about how we’re gonna form this team to win some ball games next year.” – Eric Decker on the Tim Tebow circus being gone (Sports Radio Interviews) 

Then Decker talked about the intensity level of practice with Manning at the helm.

“Oh yeah, we were kind of joking around saying that it felt like a training camp practice because I think guys are so excited to get out there and start running around and really start obviously going against the defense. And we’ve been putting in some good work and I think we’ve made a lot of strides the three days that we had this week.”
