When it comes to football, Peyton Manning’s language of choice has never been more appropriate.
The Broncos quarterback, who spent the offseason playing with the NFL’s Denver Broncos, is the first-ever active player to embrace computer language, according to the NFL.
In an interview with the ESPN.com website, Manning said the language that he and his teammates are using is a reflection of the NFL-sanctioned code of conduct, which he said “is not about a team.”
“It’s about us,” Manning said.
“We’re just trying to get better.
If we have a good team, we’re gonna play better.
We’re not gonna make mistakes.
We are gonna play together.
The code of the conduct, signed by the NFL on Dec. 7, includes language such as no “malicious intent” or “inappropriate or inappropriate use of language,” and demands that players “act respectfully to each other” and “conduct themselves with integrity, professionalism and decorum” in the team environment. “
That’s the way it is in the NFL, but it’s also a culture of football.”

Manning, who is a first-time participant, said he will not be fined for his actions.
Manning is the fifth quarterback in NFL history to have embraced the code of practice.
Before he became the first player to adopt the code in 2012, the only other quarterbacks to do so were Drew Bledsoe of the New York Giants and Tom Brady of the Patriots.
According to the league, Manning’s behavior reflects a general trend in the league.
Players in the past have been fined for their behavior and fined by the league for their actions, including former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Michael Vick, who was fined $100,000 in 2010 for a late hit on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Peyton Manning was fined a total of $2.6 million by the New England Patriots in 2012 for his hit on 49ers defensive end Bruce Smith in the Super Bowl.
But he has not been fined since 2011, when he was fined by his former team the Indianapolis Colts $10,000 for his late hit and hit on New York Jets wide receiver Victor Cruz during a playoff game.
During the preseason, Manning was one of only two players to practice in the Broncos’ locker room, which is separate from the one that holds players.
The other is running back C.J. Anderson, who plays for the Arizona Cardinals.
After the preseason ended, Manning had to make a decision whether to participate in training camp, where the rest of the league was training, or not.
He opted to participate, and the NFL fined him $1,000.
