Peyton Manning announced his retirement, following 18 years in the NFL, and having won the Super Bowl a second time – for two different teams. One of very few people who have that opportunity. Congratulations, and best of luck to you!
I wrote a post on Peyton before, but this morning’s Philadelphia Inquirer (AP) said it again:
“I get asked a lot about my legacy,” Manning said before the Super Bowl. “For me, it’s being a good teammate, having the respect of my teammates, having the respect of the coaches and players. That’s important to me.”
“Peyton was a player that guys wanted to play with,” Elway said. “That made us better as a team and I’m thrilled that we were able to win a championship in his final year.”
