Default Peytonís retirement plans arenít tied to winning another Super Bowl

Asked recently whether quarterback Peyton Manning would retire if the Broncos win the Super Bowl this year, executive V.P. of football operations John Elway said he hopes thatís a bridge theyíll have to cross.

From Manningís perspective, walking off into the sunset with a Lombardi Trophy under his arm (like Elway did) doesnít seem to be a priority.

ďItís really not,Ē Manning told Erik Kuselias of NBCSNís Pro Football Talk regarding whether the quarterbackís retirement is tied to winning another title. ĒI really have no idea how much longer Iíll play. In the 2011 season, I wasnít sure if I was going to be able to play again. I had a very strange injury. I had different doctors that just couldnít give me any type of definite timetable or any guarantee, and when youíre dealing with nerves in an injury, itís just so unpredictable.Ē

ďI want to play, Erik, as long as Iím still a productive player, as long as I can still help a team, and as long as I still enjoy it,Ē Manning said. ďI donít think itís about enjoying the games, itís about do you enjoy practice? Do you enjoy meetings? Iíve heard guys that retire, they just say they dreaded going to meetings, they dreaded going to a walk-through. If itís just so miserable, then you probably should stop. But I still enjoy the preparation. I still enjoy the practice. I enjoy getting to work with other great football players. And as long as I can still be effective, Iím going to keep playing.Ē

yeah, Manning never struck me as a guy looking for an ideal retirement situation. he's going to play until his production drops or his body tells him he can't

This year and 2 more. That gives Brock plenty of time to get his game in elite shape.

At the risk of getting lambasted for quoting ESPN radio again... Gary Miller thinks Manning can play out his contract, AND sign a two year extension while playing at a hight level. That's this year, plus five more, retiring a year older than Brett Favre did.

Really no way to tell at this point though.

I could see him playing into his 40's as long as he is healthy. Dude loves what he does.

I always assumed that if healthy he would play until 42-44 and then retire.
That's about the age in which he just cannot physically hold up unless he's just some kind of uber freak.

How long did Vinny Testeverdy(SP?) play? Wasn't he at least 41ish?

I don't think his arm strength is going to hold up THAT long. no, arm strength isn't the most important thing in the world for Manning, and yes, it tends to hold up pretty well with age, but you still need to hit a certain threshold to be a top notch QB, and Manning is in danger of dropping below that threshold at some point.

I've always said that Peyton Manning will play as long as he can play at a decent level.

He eats, breathes, and ****s football.

They'll have to take him off the field kicking and screaming.

I'd love to see him stay healthy and play well for another 4 seasons.

Peyton will never admit, but he's a historian of the game and would love to own all the major passing records (in addition to winning a few more Super Bowls).

If Peyton Manning stays healthy for 4 more seasons, he could own almost all of the major career passing records:

Passing Completions:

Leader: Brett Favre - 6,300

Peyton Manning - 5,082 (Peyton has averaged 363 completions per season....lets conservatively say 320 completions a season for the next 4 seasons....that would give him 6,362 career completions).

Passing Attempts:

Leader: Brett Favre - 10,169

Peyton Manning - 7,793 (Peyton Manning has averaged 557 attempts per season....lets conservatively give him 530 attempts a season for the next 4 seasons....that would give him 9,913 career attempts, still 256 attempts short of Brett Favre's record....damn that dude threw a lot of passes).

Passing Yards:

Leader: Brett Favre - 71,838 passing yards

Peyton Manning - 59,487 passing yards (Peyton Manning has averaged 4,249 yards passing per season....lets conservatively give him 4,000 yards a season for the next 4 seasons. That would give him 71,487 passing yards after 3 season and 75,487 passing yards per season after 4 seasons. This is a record Peyton Manning could very easily take over with another 3 solid seasons).

Passing Touchdowns:

Leader: Brett Favre - 508 Passing TDs

Peyton Manning - 436 Passing TDs (Peyton Manning has averaged a little over 31 passing TDs per season....lets conservatively give him 25 TD passes per season for the next 4 seasons. That would give him 511 TD passes after 3 seasons and 536 TD passes after 4 seasons. This is another record Peyton Manning could very easily take over with another 3 solid seasons).

I think it is his legs, can he move enough to save himself, can his body bounce back from injury (talking the small hits that add up over time), can stay conditioned enough to play a full season and Playoffs?

His arm will be fine as long as his head doesn't fall off.

Manning has his sites set on all of Favre's records, 3-4 more full seasons. I can see him playing until he is 41 as long as the team is good. When you get older you lose arm strength and foot speed and he doesn't rely on those anyway.

I personally think Peyton Manning wants to coach. I think he'd be great at it.

and even if Manning gets all of Favre's records he probably knows that Brees is likely to end up taking over just a few years later

I don't know....Drew Brees is 34 years old and Peyton Manning is 37 years old.

Manning is currently 1,047 completions ahead of Brees, 1,644 attempts ahead of Brees, 13,568 passing yards ahead of Brees, and 112 TD passes ahead of Brees.

If Peyton Manning played 4 more productive seasons, Drew Brees wouldn't make up a lot of ground and then would be 38 years old and have a ways to go to catch Peyton Manning.

any kind of prediction that sees Manning playing four more seasons probably shouldn't count Brees out at 38. the TD record might be hard for him, but the others are well within reach

Insane numbers by Favre. A great QB.

After seeing Manning get knocked down the other preseason game, first thought was Favre. Slow to get up and everything. Wonder if we will see a Saints game again in the playoffs where they just knocked Favre down all over the place without any flags. Age is catching up with Manning. I doubt Manning will eclipse Favre's #'s. I just don't see him lasting that long.
