Osweiler Loves Backing Up Peyton Manning [VIDEO]
All eyes are on Peyton Manning this season, especially Brock Osweiler's. Manning's backup says there's nothing betterHe's the Denver Broncos' OTHER first-year quarterback, a 6-foot-8 passing project from Arizona State who's the first signal-caller ever drafted with the intention of one day succeeding the league's most decorated passer.
This clip is from last week before the Kansas game...but does discuss why the Broncos and especially Manning are working so well together!
Osweiler bears a striking resemblance to "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson, but what he really wants is to look more like Manning.
So, he's taken advantage of his apprenticeship by watching Manning's every move, scribbling copious notes and mimicking his mentor's notorious work ethic and preparation.
Osweiler said he's thrilled to be in Manning's shadow and insists he'll gladly bide his time while learning as much as he can from one of the game's greats.
Still, he says he's ready if needed. (AP)
