what is gonna be peyton's legacy


Recommended Posts

you think of joe montana you think of 4 super bowls. you think john elway you think of captain comeback. generations from now will people think of peyton as the cerebral machine like qb that dissected defenses or will he be remembered for his playoff woes.

doesnt have to be retired. im talking 10-20 years down the line

Next season he can go 16-0 while throwing 25 TDs throughout the playoffs and win back to back super bowls. He would retire with 3 rings and every passing record in the book making him arguably the GOAT. Let's let him retire before we start talking about legacies.

He has not finished yet but if his career was to end today, he would be remembered for many things I think. And this is in no particular order:

 

1. four league MVPs

2. Most playoff losses

3. Pick six against Saints will be the play that owns him forever because it was the SB

4. Being unceremoniously ushered out of Indy and handling it with class

5. Denver - this has yet to be written but so far his Favrian pick agains Ravens defines his Broncs days.

dustin come back to reality. can peyton win a couple more super bowls? sure, but as it stands its one ring, great regular season stats, and a 9-11 playoff record

Key words. As it stands. He's not done.

Kind of does. What if he wins two SBs. Or what if he goes 19-0...

 

peyton can win more rings but hes running out of time

hes running out of time

He's till got 2-3 years. What you're saying now is what they said about Elway in 1996. Elway wasn't the catalyst for those Super Bowl wins. TD carried them on his back. All it takes is for one guy to step up. It doesn't need to rely all on Peyton.

If the path that he is currently on does not divert, he will be known as the Greatest Regular Season QB of all time.

 

Now, that could all change before he retires, but if he were to retire today, I think that would be his legacy.

Peyton doesn't take many hits. He could play til he was 40 IMO.

 

thats really wishful thinking. the line keeps him up right but can his arm withstand it is the question. you go back to the playoff game and you'll see there was zero zip on the ball and a lot of ducks.

go back and watch again then. im not saying peyton cant throw in the cold or if it effects him, but it was obvious his arm couldnt hold up

yeah, his arm is stil not even healed from the neck surgeries and the cold in Denver will not help as he hits late 30's...

Contrary to popular belief, the weather in Denver isn't that bad. The playoff game was abnormal...in fact it was the coldest playoff game in bronco history.

It was his hand, not his arm. Numbness in his hand causes the wobbly ducks. The numbness shouldn't be as big as problem this yr..if he's lucky.

Neither could John Elway until his LAST TWO SEASONS ......    IN DENVER.

 

Perception can change on a dime.

The guy who got amazing stats, one of the best Quarterbacks of all time. Couldn't get it done in the playoffs.

Manning has NEVER been a true blue spiral throwing QB.....       EVER.

 

In fact his deep balls have always been pretty ugly......        .

Denver has the team.     It's going to be interesting to see if Manning can do it.     I hope he gets one. 

 

He deserves it.

Bottom line folks..  Denver gave up a prayer with 20+ seconds left and lost.     They should have WON that game.

 

And now Joe Flacco is "elite" ....      and Manning can't get it done....       go figure....

 

 

Just like SF fumbling 2x and GIVING the NYG a victory in the NFCCG in 11.  In Pro Football the "BEST" team does not win every year.

I hope he can Win one more :lombardi: ,  that would be the ideal ending for his career.   

 

If not  ~~ he'll still be one of the greatest to ever play the game, with incredible talent, work ethic and Class   all the way.

If you're insinuating that Denver is the best, whose to say that they don't lose to the 49ers in the big game, even if they do make it? That game was anyone's game with the score as close as it was. I don't think Denver should have won anything. They do have a good-looking roster on paper, though, so we will see how things fare the next 2 years.

    • I take my hat off to the brave souls that do mock drafts on this board......   I REALLY think that we NEED an OT with the first or 2nd pick......  We have nada today for an important expensive position   We need the rookie wages      
    • Cap space - about 50M (spotrac)   Resign: Rhodes - 2/17M   Cap Space - 42M   FA:   Carl Lawson - 4y/40M Romeo Okwara - 4y/40M I trust Ballard but he doesnt have the best track record for drafting edge rushers so lets double down in FA on two that we know can get five or more sacks Jonnu Smith - 4y/32M Joe Haeg - 1y/1.5M   Cap Space - 12.5M   Draft: Miami got desperate and gave us both of their twos for our first  Most picks may go earlier but they could fall   R2P4 - Liam Eichenberg OT R2P18 - Greg Newsome CB R2P22 - Tutu Atwell WR (Let TY walk but replaced him with his reincarnation)  R4P22 - Richard Lecounte S  R5P21 - Monty Rice LB R6P21 - Khyris Tonga DT R7P21 - Tristan Hoge G/C   Roster:   QB - Wentz, Eason RB - Taylor, Hines, Wilkens WR - Pittman, Pascal, Patmon WR - Atwell, Campbell, Dulin TE - Smith, Doyle, MAC LT - Eichenberg, Haeg LG - Nelson C - Kelly, Hoge RG - Glowinski, Pinter RT - Smith   DE- Okwara, Turray 3T - Buckner, Lewis NT - Stewart, Tonga DE - Lawson, Banogu WLB - Leonard, Glasgow  MLB - Okereke, Speed, Rice SLB - Franklin, Adams CB - Rhodes, Ya-sin, Rodgers FS - Blackman, Odum SS - Willis, Lecounte CB - Moore, Newsome   K - Blankenship P - Sanchez LS - Rhodes
