Denver Broncos: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the first pick of the 1998 NFL draft. Since his debut, Manning has become one of the most decorated quarterbacks in NFL history. He is a thirteen times Pro Bowler, five time NFL MVP and seven time AFC player of the year. Manning led the Colts to the 2006 Super Bowl Title and 2009 AFC Conference Championship. The quarterback is the holder of an incredible sixty-four NFL records (more than any other player). Manning had neck surgery in 2011 and subsequently missed the entire 2011 NFL season. With the Colts needing to rebuild to the future Manning was released by the franchise at the start of last year. After a lengthy negotiation process, Manning signed with the Denver Broncos. Manning led the Broncos to the 2014 Super Bowl, though they were unsuccessful against Seattle. 2013 was another strong season for Manning, breaking many new records. His reign as QB doesn't seem to be letting up.

Offensive Star: Demaryius Thomas

Demaryius Thomas was selected with the 22nd pick of the 2010 NFL draft. Thomas performed well in his NFL debut, receiving for ninety-seven yards and scoring a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately, a torn Achilles tendon ended Thomas' season prematurely. With Peyton Manning throwing him the ball, Thomas had a great 2013 season free of injury. He was voted to his second Pro Bowl and selected to his first All-Pro team. Thomas averaged 9.33 receptions and 102 yards per game during the 2013-14 playoffs, including the Super Bowl. He also scored a touchdown in every single playoff game. Thomas set an NFL record for most catches in a Super Bowl game by any player, despite reportedly playing most of the game with a separated shoulder. He has proved how good he is, now he must maintain it ahead of the 2014 season.

Defensive Star: Danny Trevathan

Linebacker Danny Trevathan was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 6th round, 188 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. Trevathan was named an All-American by College Football News in 2010 as well as first team all-Southeastern Conference. He debuted for the Broncos in 2012 and is currently the starting outside linebacker after completing an NFL career best 4 tackles, 2 passes defended, and one interception in the 2013 opening game against Baltimore Ravens. He finished the season with 88 tackles, 41 assists, and 2 sacks.

Head Coach: John Fox

John Fox began his NFL coaching career as the defensive backs coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1989. He spent time at the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, St Louis Rams and New York Giants before being named head coach of the Carolina Panthers in 2002. Fox led the Panthers to the 2003 Super Bowl and the 2005 NFC Championship game, becoming the most successful coach in Panthers franchise history. After a disappointing 2010 season his contract with the Panthers was not renewed, however he was selected as the new head coach of the Denver Broncos. Fox changed the Broncos offensive scheme mid-season and led the side to the playoffs. Fox led the Broncos to a 13-3 record and the AFC's no.1 seed for a second consecutive season in 2013 as well as taking them to the Super Bowl final where they unfortunately lost to Seattle.
