Is Peyton Manning The Last Person To Know That The Super Bowl Is Definitely The Last Game Of His Career?
LBS- After the Broncos defeated the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, Peyton Manning acknowledged that Super Bowl 50 could be the final game of his NFL career.
In a lengthy embrace with Bill Belichick, Manning said this current run might be his “last rodeo.”
“Hey, listen, this might be my last rodeo, so it sure has been a pleasure,” Manning told Belichick.
First of all, let's just bask in the word choice. 'The Sheriff' telling someone it might be his last rodeo while he plays for a team called the Broncos? Oh Peyton, you sly dog. It's that kind of unassuming humor that will have him cashing that 'State Farm' money long after his retirement.
More importantly, MIGHT!?!? MIGHT be his last rodeo? What the fuck is in that chicken parm he's eating? Did Peyton already arrange for his wife to get a new shipment of PED's over the summer? Does he plan on having a bionic right arm implanted surgically in the offseason? Is his intention to actually pass away on the football field? Literally the entire world is treating this as Peyton Manning's swan song, and he hasn't even resigned to it yet? There are millions of fans rooting for the Broncos strictly they are hoping to watch Peyton Manning ride off into the sunset a champion. Every single media outlet has flat out said that this is his last game. Someone tell Peyton, and quick! Wouldn't want him to hold what little he has left back for the future. I know you don't force legends into retirement, but we have to make an exception at some point, right? RIGHT!?! The Broncos had to sit him for half a season just so he could remain upright by the time the playoffs started. He'll need his own personal handler on the field with him by next year. I know he's just leaving the door cracked so that he can return, but that door needs to be kicked shut, locked, and dead bolted. This season was painful enough, even DJ Khaled is cringing at the thought of another one. We have all seen Peyton deteriorate more than we would have liked, I don't need to see him decompose too.
