Gase: ‘We’re going to try to play faster’
“You’re not starting over, and in April we’ll be ready right from the get-go,” Gase said Thursday.
Tempo will be paramount, Gase noted, and he admitted that the offense is “going to try to play faster” than it did in 2012.
The notion that Manning was a de facto offensive coordinator was dismissed. “Peyton wants to be coached,” Gase said, adding that he learned how to be on point, because there was no end to how many questions Manning would ask. Gase also said Manning tweaked calls. “If you call something and it’s not good, he fixes it and puts you in a better play,” he said.
Playing faster? With a year of familiarity under the belts of Peyton & Company?
Sounds great. Now, about fourth downs...
