Broncos coach John Fox: Peyton Manning can be better in 2014

Saturday July 19th, 2014

Peyton Manning threw for a record 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns last regular season, and increased his own record with his fifth MVP award. But Broncos coach John Fox believes he can be even better in 2014.

"I think so, we talk about that every day," Fox said when asked Friday on NFL Total Access if Manning can get better this season. "Whether it is a football team, individual position or even an individual player. You know that's the goal to get better every day. He has worked very hard, he is in the best shape he has ever been in, all his numbers in our weight and conditioning program are all up from a year ago, even before that. There are areas he can improve in and he knows it and he will."

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he'll be ready Week 1

The 38-year-old is heading into his 17th NFL season and third with the Broncos. Save the entire 2011 season when he had neck surgery, Manning hasn't missed another game in his entire career.

He has 64,964 career passing yards, 491 touchdowns and 219 interceptions.
