So much of the talk these past few days, and really most of the NFL regular season, has been about the type of legacy Peyton Manning will leave behind after Sunday’s big game. Will Peyton Manning’s legacy change before and after Super Bowl 2014, or will it remain constant to what NFL experts have been saying his entire career?
Does Peyton Manning need to win another Super Bowl in order for him to be considered one of, if not the best quarterback of all time? In our humble opinion the answer is no. Dan Marino and Tony Gonzales are two great NFL players, hall of fame players, who will never win a Super Bowl in their entire careers. Football is a team sport and no one player can win the Super Bowl alone so why give all the credit in the world to a player who has won it, and not give due credit to players who have not won the Super Bowl or only have won it once. Yes, many football fans have forgotten that Peyton Manning already has a Super Bowl win and countless NFL records that may never be broken. At the age of 37 Peyton has overcame 4 neck surgeries and lead his team to the Super Bowl again. A Broncos team who he has only been playing with for 2 seasons.
If Peyton Manning wins the Super Bowl in 2014, will he be regarded as the greatest NFL player of all time? Peyton Manning is one of the most prolific quarterbacks in the NFL from a pure stats perspective. It is no secret that he wins a lot of football games. If Manning isn’t regarded as at least one of the top 3 quarterbacks of all time, the NFL will need to reconsider who they select to talk about these things. We have been fortunate to live in an era where we have seen the Manning brothers own Super Bowl championships after being so competitive for so many years at all level of the game.
Manning has been fortunate to have been blessed with a father who was an NFL quarterback. Archie Manning has mentored two Super Bowl legends in both Peyton and Eli. It will be interesting to see if the Manning football pedigree continues on. The Super Bowl is a special place and the Mannings have forever left their mark on this sacred event. Peyton Manning has been fortunate to be one of most consistent producing guys in NFL history. The Super Bowl is the most bet upon sporting event of all time. If you are interested in placing a wager on Peyton Manning and the Broncos, we recommend that you visit Bovada or BetOnline to do so.
Let’s put it this way, Peyton Manning will be remember for what he did in the game of football, not his Papa John commercials so on our books he is already a legend regardless of whether or not Peyton wins Super Bowl 2014.
