With the rumors already being leaked that Peyton Manning will indeed return for a fourth season with Denver Broncos pending a positive physical evaluation. It’s time to assess just how Manning’s future might look. While it seems like football fans everywhere are giving up on Manning due to his poor playoff performance, one would be foolish to write off the aging vet. Manning is arguably the greatest player ever at prepping himself for success. If you factor in that for one of the few times in his career his back is against the wall (the other time being his recovery from neck injury). You’d be smart to think that Manning is going to be focused more than ever to give it one last go. A well trained and healthy Manning will likely put one last outstanding year together, and then ride off into the sunset. No matter how the following season ends that will likely be it for one of the greatest Quarterbacks the game has ever seen. So while the velocity on his throws weren’t there at the end of this season. Don’t expect the same results the following year. The only other hurdle in Manning’s future is coming back next year to begin with. At what point do you take your health into consideration and say enough is enough?
