He had the second best year of his career while still regaining arm strength throughout the year

His arm looks stronger this year, so I can definitely see him playing till 40 at a high level

He exceeded my expectations last year and is playing with a chip on his shoulder this year

I mean at an elite level. Vinny was 43 when he retired and pretty much washed up. I think Manning can be very legit at 42 if we can keep him healthy.
I always thought he'd be a 40+ year old guy still playing well even before the neck injury.

Wouldn't surprise me to see him play out is contract....and more. Football is his entire life and he is going to struggle when he's out of it unless he has some type of contact with it. There was a story that when he went to college or to the pros he had no clue how to even use a can opener. His whole focus has been football and I see it taking a lot for him to leave the field. I just hope when he does we've found a QB we can be confident in.

On the Dan Patrick show Dan asked Tony Dungy if he thought Manning would make a good coach. Dungy said no because Peyton would expect all of his players to practice & prepare like he did....and that's just not possible.

you people are crazy optimists. favre is the only QB to ever have a good season at 40+, and he was immediately shot the next year. steve young had a remarkable year at 37 and was done at 38. same with rich gannon and YA tittle. kurt warner had a great season at 37, a good season at 38, and hung 'em up anyway. there is overwhelming evidence that once QBs hit this 37 year old barrier nothing is a given. I'm taking peyton one year at a time and crossing my fingers.

I will forever be an optimist when it comes to Broncos QB's.
I hoped Tebow would get replaced and he did.
