FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsDenver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning may have sustained injuries that had made everyone think his sports career had come to an end but he always showed people otherwise. Now at quite an advanced age for NFL players but still in fit form, the quarterback who could barely throw a ball a few years ago says that he still has some good years left in him.
The Broncos are heading into the Super Bowl where they will face the Seattle Seahawks. Manning has had a Hall of Famer career and going out of the NFL with another Super Bowl ring does sound good. But Manning isn’t planning quitting anytime soon and still wants to give what he can to the team.
Manning said the only time he would contemplate retiring would be when he could not give much more to the team. As long as he could contribute he would still play.
"If I can't produce, if I can't help the team, that's when I'll stop playing," Manning said Sunday. "If that's next year, maybe it is, but I certainly want to continue to keep playing."
The Super Bowl will be held at MetLife Stadium next week. The Broncos came to New Jersey on Sunday and were off and running to start their preparations for the upcoming Super Bowl against Seahawks. Manning has had an excellent career in which he has set personal and franchise records. He had a record of 55 touchdown passes and totaled 5,447 yards. The Broncos has the best offense in entire NFL and Manning was the one who spearheaded it. He also has a chance to become the first ever QB to win Super Bowls from two franchises. Keeping all those achievements in perspective it is astounding to notice that this is the same man who underwent a couple of surgeries including spinal fusion that had been predicted to end his career.
Manning said he still had the love for the game and actually felt better after the surgeries. He said he still enjoyed every routine for the game and still wanted to play it as long as he can.
"I still enjoy playing football. I feel a little better than I thought I would at this point coming off that surgery, and I still enjoy the preparation part of it, the important part of it,” Manning said. “Everybody enjoys the games, and everybody's going to be excited to play in the Super Bowl. But I think when you still enjoy the preparation, I think you probably still ought to be doing that.”
