Quotable: Elway on Manning's Record

Posted Dec 23, 2013

Read what Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway had to say about Peyton Manning's NFL record 51 passing touchdowns.

EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS JOHN ELWAY

On whether he knew Manning had a record-breaking season in him when he signed him
“Well, I wasn’t exactly positive, but I was very hopeful – let’s put it that way. And if anybody could do it and come back, it was 18. And he’s proved me right.”

On his reaction to the record being broken
“I was thrilled. I was thinking that hopefully he’ll throw some more next week and extend that streak. It was nice to be able to get that behind us and get Peyton that record, because he’s been working so hard.”

On what makes Peyton so successful on the field
“He’s just a student of the game and he works hard and he’s a great competitor. He just wants to continue getting better game-in and game-out. He’s that type of guy. A very special, special guy.”

On whether when the record was close the team wanted to call passes
“Sure. Absolutely. And then he got a perfect matchup outside, too. That was a spectacular throw. But the other 50 were, too. I’m thrilled for him and the work he’s put in. There’s not anybody more deserving than Peyton for what he’s put in the last couple years to get that record.”

On what’s next after clinching the division
“We still haven’t clinched the one seed. We’ve clinched a bye, now we want to clinch that one seed and we’ll see where things fall – we can do that next week with a win. So we just want to continue to build off this and continue to play our best football. We want to continue to play good and hopefully take it through the playoffs.”
