Broncos answer questions about their futures on media day

If there is one word Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are tired of hearing this Super bowl week, it’s the L word. No, it’s not the word lose, more like legacy.

Peyton sat relaxed in his chair on media day in Newark and joked that he had been hearing people speculate about his legacy since he was 25 and just starting out in the league and know questions if he even knows what the word means. Manning is well aware that his chances to win the big show may be limited and he has to take advantage.

Peyton wasn’t the only Bronco getting end of year questions on media day as just a few feet over from Manning sat long time veteran defensive back Champ Bailey. Bailey was quick to divert end of career questions (hear his comments below).

Aside from the star power of the Manning and Bailey, the biggest concerns for the Broncos on media day was how the high powered Denver offense was going to perform of the frozen tundra of New Jersey. A confident Julius Thomas told reporters that the weather isn’t much of a concern for Peyton and the offense.

Whether the players were Super Bowl veterans like Peyton Manning and Wes Welker, or new comers like Demariyus Thomas it was clear, that the Broncos were a comfortable group in the spotlight. Thomas relied on the experience of other Super Bowl vets for tips on what to expect and so far for him so good .

It was a fun day for media and players alike and it obvious that both parties were quite content in taking in the atmosphere of a rare, special Super Bowl in New York.
