|Peyton Manning is regarded as perhaps the best ever quarterback in the NFL|
Manning played 17 seasons (missing the entire 2011 season due to neck surgery), including 13 with the Indianapolis Colts (one Super Bowl title with them) and the last four seasons with the Denver Broncos, which included a Super Bowl title this past season, which was one of Manning's worst ever statistically speaking.
Manning holds the all time NFL records for passing yardage in a career, most touchdown passes in a career, most passing yardage in a single season (2013) and also most touchdown passes in a single season, which he also set in the 2013 campaign.
In addition, Manning is the only QB ever to win Super Bowl titles with two different teams and is the only one with 200 career victories, including the post-season.
Manning was the top draft pick in 1998 by Indianapolis and along with New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, formed one of the greatest rivalries the NFL has ever seen throughout the decades of the 2000's.
Manning is a sure thing for the NFL Hall-of-Fame in five years.
Congrats number 18 on your career and enjoy your retirement.
