Peyton Manning says the Broncos offensive is still trying to find identity

Denver Broncos offense has been struggling, but Peyton Manning says the team is still trying to get it together.

“Would we like to be a finely-tuned machine going into Week 1? Sure,” Manning said, via ESPN.com. “With some newness, some different players and some different things that we’re doing, that’s what we’re working toward. … Not to make excuses you can still win games as you’re kind of finding your identity.

“We’re still very much figuring out who we are and what we’re going to be as far as things we can really hang our hat on,” Manning added. “I still think we can win games as we’re developing kind of that identity.”

Manning looks like he’s still trying to fully grasp the harness on the Broncos offense, especially taking snaps from under center.

“The biggest thing offensively is we don’t have a lot to show for some of the good things that are going on,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “We hold the ball for 20 minutes in first half (Saturday night), you’re over 50 percent on third down, you think you’d be scoring some points, that’s the thing that’s discouraging. … I had us in a couple tough situations that I’ve got to do a better job with our quarterback. There are things we can fix. There needs to be a sense of urgency to get some things cleaned up.”
