Denver Broncos Quarterback
Peyton Manning is a Hall-of-Fame NFL quarterback and a legend in the fantasy football world. If he never throws another pass in the National Football League, Manning will still be talked about by fantasy football owners decades from now.
In his time with the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos, he has gone to 3 Super Bowls and won 1 world title.
It’s a measure of how great the expectations are for the middle son of Archie Manning that those accomplishments are considered a disappointment.
Peyton Manning’s decline has been quick and dramatic. As late as midseason one year ago, people assumed Peyton Manning was an NFL MVP candidate. Now, he’s being replaced by Brock Osweiler as the Denver Broncos quarterback.
Whether this is a temporary fall or the sign of the NFL great’s final collapse, this page will cover his travails.

Peyton Manning Quotes
I promise I will throw a lot of touchdowns in the new stadium–a lot more than I threw on Sunday.
We had good execution today. We had a real mindset to execute down in the red zone because last week people were making a big deal that in the red zone we had to settle for three points a couple of times. That was the mindset, to finish drives into the end zone. We did that today and that really was the difference.
On Fantasy Football
This is mostly the fantasy guys asking me that and asking how we’re feeling this year. ‘How many are you going to throw,’…You can tell by the tone of their voice if you don’t throw over 50, it’s going to be a bad season.
On Eli Manning
I bet Eli doesn’t even have one touchdown today,…I’m the best Manning.
Really? He threw four? It’s good to hear. I almost never get a chance to see him play. I just catch the highlights and then talk to him during the week. He’s playing well. He’s putting some pressure on me to catch up with his numbers.
On Pressure and Expectations
Pressure is something you feel when you don’t know what the hell you’re doing.
You hear about how many fourth quarter comebacks that a guy has and I think it means a guy screwed up in the first three quarters.
You love everything to be perfect, but they made a few plays and we worked through it and got a good win on the road…That is what good teams do. The idea was just to take care of business, and we did that.
On The City of New Orleans
What Eli and I want to do is help the city.
We are in to help for the long haul. This is our hometown.
The whole town is like family, so it’s very much a personal issue.
We know these people; these people know us. We have a connection to these people.
On Marvin Harrison
Some guys need to see things on a grease board…I like when you can see it in your mind. And that’s what Marvin does, too. He visualizes. He sees things in his mind so well.
Any time you’re involved in company or a record with guys like Steve Young or Jerry Rice, no question it’s an honor…And we did do it in far fewer years than those two guys did.
