I don't know why most seem to think Manning will coach in the NFL. IMO he wont even be a GM. He has stated more than a few times his family comes before football. I just don't see him taking a job that involves as much time as coaching or being a GM does. I think the closest thing coming to football Manning does would be in broadcasting.
Needs to retire. Doesn't need the money, doesn't need the acholades, doesn't need to build more stats or does he. He'll be another side show in a circus a la Farve if he hangs around. Retire while you're on top, you'r legacy has been cemented no need to pad up your stats.
Thinking about what you're saying, I do wonder if there is any thought at all in Denver of bringing Peyton back for his final year at $19 mil, signing Brock for a contract that has low cash in 2016 and $15-$20 mill for years beyond that....and rolling with both of them for the coming season...with that defense.
I have problems with urging someone to retire because of the chances they have t win a title.
. Retirement is forever........
But I understand what you say about wanting Peyton to go home with his family
being a champ in his final season. To win in his final season is what I wanted for him, too
