Cutcliffe: When Peyton says “whatever it takes,” he means it

David Cutcliffe: Peyton Manning’s recovery a tribute to hard work

And in a feature that will air Saturday on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning, Cutcliffe details just how hard Manning worked to get to this point. The NFL Network feature includes footage from a simulated game Manning ran at Duke’s football facility in which he made every single throw the same way he had made them in a 2010 playoff win over the Jets, and that’s a “game” Cutcliffe says he remains very proud of “winning.”

“I don’t think I ever won a game that I felt better about what we accomplished than this ballgame that nobody watched,” Cutcliffe said. “It is really a story worth telling about hard work. Everybody says, ‘I’ll do whatever it takes.’ That’s whatever it takes right there.”

While it's incredibly frustrating waiting for these pieces to actually air, as the host teases them fifteen times an hour, but at least we won't be forced to watch Chris Berman and Frank Caliendo for this one.
