Peyton Manning hasn’t strayed too far from football Antworten

ENGLEWOOD Daniel Jones Jersey , Colo. (AP) — in retirement, serving as a volunteer coach at his kid’s youth games, hosting a show celebrating the NFL’s 100th season and visiting old friends like he did Thursday when he dropped by the Denver Broncos‘ practice.Only a handful of teammates remain from the squad that won Super Bowl 50 with him three years ago, and it’s a good thing cornerback Chris Harris Jr.’s contract stalemate was resolved this week or there would have been one less familiar face.Manning still keeps tabs mostly on Indianapolis and Denver, where he played, and on New York, where his brother Eli is in a QB battle with Giants rookie Daniel Jones and where his former offensive coordinator Adam Gase is now running the Jets.Despite rumors that Manning was up for the Jets’ GM job following the ouster of Mike Maccagnan, Manning said Gase never contacted him about the job.“He never did. I have spoken with Adam, of course, since he’s been there, but I did not speak with him about that nor was I contacted by anyone,” Manning told a group of beat reporters in a wide-ranging interview.“But as I’ve said before, I enjoy keeping up with of course Eli Quincy Williams II Jersey , but (also) the players or coaches that I’ve played with, played for — not many players here that I’ve played with. I was meeting a lot of players here for the first time.”Manning said he enjoyed catching up with Broncos new head coach Vic Fangio, who was his defensive coordinator in Indianapolis from 1999-2001. Manning said Fangio’s arrival in Indy “had a lot to do with” the Colts‘ turnaround from 3-13 his rookie year in 1998 to 13-3 in ’99.“He’s super competitive and he wanted to win every practice against the offense,” Manning recounted, adding, “I think it helped me a lot.”Manning recalled one practice in particular where he complained loudly that the DBs were holding his receivers and afterward found a plate of wine and cheese in his locker, a present from Fangio.Manning ended up going 15-1 against Fangio’s defenses during his career.“I don’t remember him bothering me that much, but I guess I kept it with me,” Manning said. “But I’m happy for him getting his opportunity to be a head coach. He has certainly paid his dues. He is all football. He is a grinder. And I think he’ll do a great job.”Manning also visited with quarterback Joe Flacco , who’s trying to do the same thing Manning did seven years ago when he revived not only his own career in Denver but also the fortunes of a foundering franchise.“I think he’ll have a great year,” Manning said, adding that rookie Drew Lock is in a good spot getting to learn from the veteran QB.Manning said what he misses about playing is the camaraderie.“I miss my teammates because you don’t see them every day,” he said. “That’s the greatest thing about football. You were around the guys every single day. Huddle. Plane rides. Cafeteria. The off-the-field things.”He said he was looking forward to attending the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in August for Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and cornerback Champ Bailey Ryquell Armstead Jersey , but never thinks about his own enshrinement prospects. He’s eligible in 2021.Asked if he’s going to work in the league someday, Manning said, “I can’t speak too far into the future. I guess in a way, I am right now doing this little thing for the NFL, on the 100th year.”Manning is hosting and serving as an executive producer for “Peyton’s Places ,” a five-part, 30-episode series celebrating the NFL’s 100th season. The show debuts on ESPNin July, with ESPN and ABC airing special compilations.Beyond that, “I can’t look into a glass and say what I am going to be wanting to do this year, next year or five years from now,” Manning said. “I do know I want to stay close to it, connected to it.”Manning, who said he turned down the chance to work on the “Monday Night Football” telecasts because the timing wasn’t right this year Gardner Minshew II Jersey , spends plenty of time shuttling his 8-year-old twins Marshall and Mosley to their games.“I will be at the Yankees and Smashers’ 8-year-old baseball and softball games, Marshall and Mosley,” Manning said. “I am not coaching. I am a volunteer assistant.Manning is so busy nowadays that he shuns the word “retirement.”“It’s my second chapter, if you will,” he said. “I don’t have that one-word job description, coaching or broadcasting. I have just been kind of busy doing lots of things. That’s important to be able to go those games. … There’s flag football on Sunday. Marshall is playing for the Rams. He has a game on Sunday at 4.”And parents trust him around their kids after his United Way skit on “SNL” ?“Certain parents are very hesitant,” Manning deadpanned. “I kind of have to earn it as a volunteer assistant. It’s funny. It’s fun.” Adrian Peterson showed the Washington Redskins what they needed to see in his debut by rushing for 56 yards on 11 carries in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos on Friday night in each team’s third preseason game.Peterson carried the ball seven consecutive plays on one possession, and the 2012 MVP later picked up 15 yards on fourth-and-1. The Redskins (1-2) signed Peterson on Monday after injuries to three running backs and were eager to see what the 33-year-old had in the tank.They got their answer: enough to likely earn the starting job Week 1 at the Arizona Cardinals. After only three practices, Peterson looked to have passed Rob Kelley, Kapri Bibbs and injured backs Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall on the depth chart.Peterson’s play was a bright spot for the Redskins as they were carved up by Case Keenum and Denver’s first-team offense, and Alex Smith was an unimpressive 3 of 8 for 33 yards in four series. Keenum was 12 of 18 for 148 yards before giving way to backup Chad Kelly for the Broncos (1-2).The Broncos’ first-team offense scored two touchdowns and added a field goal in five series of work, led by dual-threat receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He was responsible for all 75 of Denver’s yards on its second touchdown drive, catching passes of 15 and 33 yards from Keenum and scoring on a 27-yard end-around.GIANTS 22 Christian Wilkins Jersey , JETS 16EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Sam Darnold led the Jets on two touchdown drives, moving closer to securing the starting quarterback job in a loss to the Giants.The No. 3 overall draft pick made his second consecutive start, finishing 8 of 16 for 86 yards — including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Terrelle Pryor.Darnold is competing with Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown for the Jets’ starting job, but the rookie is being given every chance to be under center when New York (1-2) opens the regular season at Detroit on Sept. 10.Bridgewater came in on the Jets’ second offensive possession of the second half, while McCown never played. Bridgewater was 11 of 15 for 104 yards.Darnold got off to a solid start, leading an 11-play, 75-yard drive on the Jets’ opening series that was capped by Bilal Powell‘s 10-yard touchdown run.The Giants’ starters played just the first two quarters, with Eli Manning going 17 of 23 for 188 yards in what was likely his final tuneup before the regular season. Sterling Shepard had seven catches for 78 yards for the Giants (2-1).PANTHERS 25, PATRIOTS 14CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton gave the Panthers an early injury scare before returning to help Carolina defeat New England in a preseason game.On the game’s opening drive, Newton scrambled out of the pocket on third-and-9 before recklessly diving head-first — this is the preseason, after all — and landing on his head after getting upended by cornerback Jonathan Jones.Newton was forced to leave the game to be evaluated for a concussion Michael Deiter Jersey , but returned four plays later to a loud ovation and played the remainder of the first half.He finished 11 of 17 for 142 yards passing and led three scoring drives — all resulting in field goals — as the Panthers built a 9-3 lead at halftime.Running back Christian McCaffrey continued to be a major player on offense, touching the ball 10 times for 51 yards on Carolina’s opening drive which lasted nearly 10 minutes.The Panthers (3-0) had 203 yards in the first half, but couldn’t find the end zone.It was a quiet night for Tom Brady, who completed 12 of 18 passes for 102 yards in the first half. The five-time Super Bowl champion didn’t get much help from his receivers, who dropped multiple passes. The Patriots (2-1) never did get in sync offensively and were limited to 130 yards in the first half.VIKINGS 21, SEAHAWKS 20MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kirk Cousins helped Minnesota’s offense make some progress by passing for 182 yards in the first half, and third-stringer Kyle Sloter threw for two fourth-quarter touchdowns as the Vikings rallied for a victory over Seattle.Sebastian Janikowski kicked field goals from 35 and 55 yards in the first half for the Seahawks (1-2), who kept their starters in past halftime. Russell Wilson led one scoring drive against the vaunted Vikings defense, finishing 11 for 21 for 118 yards.Chris Carson carried seven times for 26 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 20 yards for the Seahawks, who are trying to regenerate the power running attack that helped them reach two straight Super Bowls.For the Vikings (2-1), Sloter’s touchdowns went to Jake Weineke and Chad Beebe, before the go-ahead 2-point conversion completion to Weineke again.___
