Will Manning’s Presence Make the Broncos Better in 2012?

With a new QB In Peyton Manning aboard for the Broncos, Pro Football Weekly reports that the defense in 2012 is also got to get better, and that Manning is going to have a HUGE part in that.

Four teams hung at least 40 points on Denver last season, something Peyton Manning may help curb in 2012. In Denver, we hear that Manning’s role working with Mike McCoy and the offense has benefitted the “D” by giving John Fox more time to pay attention to that side of the ball, which has a new coordinator in Jack Del Rio. The Broncos will be more aggressive on defense under Del Rio, and have the pass rushers to complement what Manning will do on offense in the form of Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. Getting after the quarterback wasn’t a huge concern for Denver in 2011 — the Broncos were tied for 10th in the league with 41 sacks — but high-powered passing offenses had their way with Denver’s secondary.
