A regular day of a quarterback in training camp

If you think that the life of an NFL football player is easy, you’d better think twice…

 

Let’s see how a regular day is for an NFL quarterback, this time we’ll choose Peyton Manning.

 

Manning is at Colts training camp, and he has to be up at around 6:30 in the morning, no matter what the starting schedule for practice is. He makes sure he wakes up his roommate and both go right to the Football field.

 

Practice starts around 8 am, and Manning finishes with about 90 NFL throws. Then it’s time to visit the cafeteria for lunch, a little nap at the dorm and then an afternoon meeting before nightly practice.

 

A walk-thru, some warm-ups, then around 70 NFL throws and it’s time for Peyton Manning to visit the Colts training staff for regular treatment.

 

Now Manning is heading for dinner before going to a session of meetings: first the whole team, then just the quarterbacks and by 10 pm his day at training camp is over, so it’s time to go chill out before hitting the bed at 11 pm.

 

The question is… Is this what Brett Favre is looking for being a 38 year-old almost-retired player? “Well, I don’t think so” Manning said, “but that’s the cost of doing what you love the most and having fun on the field” he ends.
