Bill Cowher says Peyton Manning could adjust to new system
Dan asked if it’s a big concern if Manning goes to a team with a different kind of offense than what Peyton has run in Indy. Can Manning adjust?
“This offense he’s in now has evolved,” Cowher said. “He’s a very cerebral quarterback. He’ll adapt. … He just wants to be on a football team committed to winning.”
Cowher talked about how to defend Manning. Cowher said that you couldn’t show your defense until the clock had less than 10 seconds on it because Manning would see the change. “Disguise was a huge part of it,” Cowher said. “He’s probably the smartest quarterback we ever went against.”
Cowher also weighed in on bounties. “There’s really no place for it,” Cowher said. “In my 15 years in Pittsburgh, we never talked about paying players to take other players out.”
