As you should know by now, Peyton Manning, the Sheriff, No. 18, has officially called it a career and announced his retirement from the NFL.
After 17 astounding seasons, countless records, driving Bill Belichick utterly insane, coming back from what was thought to be a career-ending neck injury, and winning two Super Bowl rings, it’s a wrap. As it should be.
But now is no time to say what he should or shouldn’t have done. Right now is the time to give a tip of the hat, a tip of the glass, or offer a classic 1980s slow clap for easily one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Tributes to one of the greatest of all time are flowing in from all over.
One of the best I’ve seen so far has to be this video put together for TSN written by ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi and narrated by Peyton’s little bro Eli Manning.
With clips from their youth, highlights from Peyton’s career spanning high school to the NFL, and a heartfelt message that only a family member can deliver it’s quite a touching look back at one of the best to ever play the game.
