Emmanuel Sanders says Peyton Manning is a better leader than Big Ben

Emmanuel Sanders is a new member of the Denver Broncos and as a former Steeler he took a jab at his former QB. Most of the time players will say that their former quarterback is a great player, but from a leader stand point Sanders says their no question whose better.

“(From) a mental standpoint, I don’t care to really say this, but I feel Peyton is a far better leader,” told 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.

“This is the first time that I had a quarterback that stays every single day after practice, no matter what his accolades,” he went on. “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.
