Peyton Manning: Von Miller Is Best Athlete I Ever Played With 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jun 28, 2019 12:18 pm

Peyton Manning played with a lot of guys during his Hall of Fame career, but one particular player sticks out in his mind.

In his retirement, Manning has focused on watching his brother Eli\'s games as well as those of his former teams.

\"We come to all the Broncos games, so I enjoy some of the guys that I\'ve played with, like Von Miller. I still enjoy watching him compete,\" Manning said. \"Maybe this tells you how special he is that I\'m maybe not looking at quarterbacks now; I\'m watching outside linebackers and pass rushers. 

\"People ask me a lot of times, \'Who\'s the best athlete you\'ve ever played with?\' And I say, \'Von Miller.\' Just some of the things he can do physically is special. So when you come to a Broncos game and they\'re on defense, you find yourself kind of locked in, seeing this might be the game-changing sack-fumble play, or interception — some kind of game-changing play he can make. I like the way he handles his business and like the way he competes out there.\"
