Peyton Manning's Former Back Up Predicts Bronco Win

Peyton Manning's Former Back Up Predicts Bronco Win

Super Bowl hype is in the air. This Sunday, the Denver Broncos will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. One KELOLAND man will be watching closely, not just as a football fan, but also because he used to be the backup quarterback to future Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning.

Cory Sauter played three years for the Indianapolis Colts. From 2001-2004 he was backup quarterback for Peyton Manning.

Sauter says even in practice, Manning would amaze him

"There were some practices where there was literally zero balls on the ground, there were completions for the entire practices, I've never seen anything like it," Sauter said.

Sauter was the second ranked quarterback at the 1997 NFL combine, only behind, who else? Peyton Manning.

The 39 year old Sauter is now the head football coach of Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall. 

He says a lot of what he coaches today about game, he learned from Manning.

"He's really taught me the definition of hard work and preparation, maybe a little bit different for him than it was for your typical student athlete," Sauter said.

Don: I have to ask you the question everyone wants to know, what is Omaha?! Omaha?
Cory: We didn't use Omaha at Indianapolis, so to be honest with you; it's probably an indication of the next sound that the ball needs to be snapped. That would be my guess.

Sauter says playing with Manning was like having a coach in the huddle.

"As far as studying the game, he takes it to the Nth level, he takes it beyond anybody I've ever seen, he has his own film room in his basement where he has all the film he can sit there as much as he wants that's what he loves to do," Sauter said.

Sauter will be cheering for his former teammate come this Sunday, but win or lose, Manning will always be a champion of the game and in life.

"To say that I was even associated with a guy like that truly makes me proud and I feel honored to be on the same team for a couple of seasons and I wish him the best and hope he finds a way to win another one," Sauter said.

Sauter is predicting the Broncos will win the Super Bowl by 6.  Sauter also played for the Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, and the Chicago Bears.
