ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Since Gary Kubiak was named Denver Broncos head coach in January, he has taken several opportunities to say the team will run the ball more.Kubiak has said “I just believe in it.”Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, too, has said the team will run more, and has said, “It’s something we’ve believed in.”[+] EnlargeAndrew Weber/USA TODAY SportsAs the 2015 season approaches, Peyton Manning and Denver’s offense will aim to throw less and run more.Quarterback Peyton Manning, who took a $4 million pay cut to see what the Broncos could be, has said he’d be comfortable in any offense short of the wing-T.But how much more running the Broncos do remains to be seen as Manning tries to mesh what he does with what Kubiak believes in, and has done as a part of his coaching career that includes three Super Bowl rings. If you draw the line at seasons with 500 rushing attempts — a hefty total even before pass-happy times went to pass-giddy times — it’s clear Manning, Kubiak and Dennison will have to work it out because that would be uncharted ground for the quarterback.Manning has never played in an offense that ran the ball 500 times and there would be a line around the block of offensive playcallers, offensive strategists, who would say “and why run the ball 500 times with Manning, moron?” But Manning has been a part of three seasons when his offense ran the ball 450 times and had four seasons when his team didn’t run the ball at least 400 times.Those sub-400-carry seasons were his rookie year in 1998 and a three-season run of 2008-10 before he missed the 2011 season with his fourth neck surgery.By contrast, Kubiak has been a part of offenses that ran at least 500 times in a season nine times and been part of offenses that ran the ball at least 450 times in 12 seasons.It’s not to say Manning hasn’t played in an offense that succeeded at running the ball. Edgerrin James won league rushing titles in 1999 and 2000, with 1,553 yards and 1,709 yards rushing respectively, and had two other 1,500-yard rushing seasons (2004-05) for the Colts.The rub, and it may be a small one, or at least one that is lost in a sort of chicken-or-egg argument, is all of those 1,500-yard seasons for James came in Manning’s first seven seasons in the league.
