After all the records Peyton Manning sti

Postby sherry2018love » Fri Nov 03, 2017 12:15 pm

For a player who spent nearly two decades creating one of the most uncomplicated images in sports, Peyton Manning leaves the stage with a surprisingly complicated legacy .And only some of it is about the stains from the very end, the investigation into a performance-enhancing drug accusation and a long-ago sexual-impropriety allegation that bubbled back up years later.No, this is his football legacy. Manning retires from an 18-year NFL career with all the major individual pa sing records, and a reputation as a technically-brilliant quarterback that few can match.MORE: Unforgettable Manning images | 10 unbreakable NFL records Yet he came down the stretch of his career needing that one more Lombardi Trophy to validate it all in the eyes of many. Only one Super Bowl? Accompanied by two Super-ugly lo ses for which he earned a hefty portion of blame?That wouldnt do. Glover Quin Jersey Win one more, even if youre a shell of your former self when you do, and the pedestal youve stood on so uneasily will be set in concrete.Its all set now. Manning threw for 141 yards in the last game of his life that meant something, Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos. He left with Michael Roberts Jersey a whisper instead of a roar, but he didnt leave empty-handed, and that made all the difference for how hell be remembered.Go figure.Its how weve come to judge quarterbacks, the way to measure them against each other. The rings are the tiebreakers. Manning cant catch Tom Brady, or Joe Montana, or Terry Bradshaw in that area. But hes ahead of Dan Marino and Brett Favre and he now owns the lofty marks they once did, compiled in an era where it took a lot to reach those marks.Peyton Mannings claim to being an immortal among all immortals is strong. Its strong enough to, again, Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey overcome the stains on the pristine image at the end. Its enough to overcome the way the storybook ending had him limping next to the horse into a cloudburst, instead of riding it into the sunset.Much of his legacy will be as the face of two franchises at different stages of his career, separated by an injury crisis that sparked one of the great second acts ever.In his 13 years with the Colts, he was the quarterback all the others chased surgical, clinical, machine-like, carving defenses up with a style that hadnt been seen before and is still too hard to copy. His records might fall, but the memory and knowledge of how he set his cant ever be erased.MORE: 10 best Manning performances | NFL Network interested in Manning Manning chased Super Bowls for the last decade or so of that run, made it to two and won XLI over the Bears. Yet the longer it took before he claimed that one, and the harder it got to push through Brady and the Patriots to get there, the more complicated the picture of his career became.When four neck surgeries signaled the end of his run in Indianapolis, he took that quest to Denver, produced a record-shattering season that defied probability, and went to two more Super Bowls.Yet Manning went into the last one with that legacy in the balance. A lo s would leave a gaping hole in his resume or so the perception said, and that perception fed the legacy.In the end, though, he won enough, and piled up numbers even more. Most career yards and touchdown pa ses, most single-season yards and touchdown pa ses, most Ziggy Ansah Jersey NFL MVP awards.And two Super Bowl wins. Maybe the legacy isnt that complicated after all.
