Denver Broncos Predominantly Orange: Emmanuel Sanders Says Broncos Don’t Have True No. 1 Wide Receiver

Sayre Bedinger brings the Bronco fans a story about how he feels the Broncos do not have a number wide receiver in their mists. Now it is true that Manning is so good he does spread the ball around to the open target. he has been a student of the game for years and it shows in how he plays. Last year Chief fans watched in horror as the top 5 defense in the NFL was picked apart by Manning.

In the two season Manning has logged with Denver he has amassed 10,136 yards, 92 touchdowns with only 21 interceptions. That stat alone is a testament to just how great a passer he truly is. Manning no doubt is a giant thorn in Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid’s side and you can bet Reid has a better plan in 2014.

So what does this mean for the 2014 Chiefs? Pretty much the same has it meant in 2013. The Chiefs need to find answers for Manning’s ability to pick apart the defense. The good thing is that the Seattle Seahawks have laid the blue print for how to beat the Broncos. Now are the Chiefs Seattle? Not at all, but they can take what happened in that embarrassing loss, and tailor it to fit the Chiefs scheme. Only time will tell if the Chiefs will have the answer for Manning, but another year in Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton’s defense can’t hurt and one can be sure next year will be different…hopefully.
