In a much talked-about game, Broncos fans had a chance to see Peyton Manning in action in last night’s opening pre-season game against the Chicago Bears.  Though Manning played for only a short time, much of last night’s anticipation revolved around how he would be as Denver’s new quarterback.  While fans in Denver are looking forward to have Manning as the quarterback for the Broncos, many people were watching how Manning would play, considering he missed the entire 2011 season due to a nerve injury in his neck — an injury that also affected his throwing arm.

“Considering where I was a year ago, the fact that I was out there and took a snap, completed some passes today, it’s been a long haul for me,” he said after the game. “That was rewarding. Even that first snap, the very first play, that was a big step for me.”

In the short amount of time Manning was in the game, he completed four out of seven passes on 11 plays for 44 yards. The Broncos beat the Bears in a 31-3 win in Chicago. Unfortunately, for the fans, his last pass ended in an interception – but there will be plenty of time to see Manning do what he does best on the field. Manning knows many people were watching how he’d perform, and he’s ready to put his injuries behind him. “I know when we get to Pittsburgh [for the ‘Sunday Night Football’ opener] it’ll be about the game, and I won’t be too reflective.”
