Emmanuel Sanders Says Peyton Better Than Big Ben


Broncos NewsFormer Steelers wide out Emmanuel Sanders is now catching the deep ball for the Denver Broncos, and Sanders says that Peyton Manning is a better QB than Big Ben.

Sanders noted, “(From) a mental standpoint, I don’t care to really say this, but I feel Peyton is a far better leader,” he continued to KKFM in Denver. “In terms of staying after practice, catching balls, wanting guys to get on the same page with him and things of that sort.”

Sanders also said, “This is the first time that I had a quarterback that stays every single day after practice, no matter what his accolades,” he continued. “From NFL MVP, Super Bowl rings. He keeps guys like me and (Cody) Latimer after practice and we’re out there 15, 20 minutes. And he’s not one of those guys you gotta go chase down, he’s gonna be right at the same spot ready to work, every single day.”

While Ben Roethlisberger is undoubtedly a good quarterback, it is hard to criticize Sanders for something that most, if not all NFL experts would agree with. Peyton Manning is a completely different quarterback.

Roethlisberger has made the most of his time in Pittsburgh, and has more rings than Peyton, but when it comes to knowing the game, making his receivers better, and picking apart defenses, there may be no one in the league right now who is better than Peyton Manning.
