Glenn Younes: The Not So Super Plight of Peyton
While most are talking about whether Colts QB Peyton Manning will play football again, for Indy or anyone else, I’m thinking about the more immediate problem Manning faces.
Super Bowl 46 on his field. At his Stadium. In his city will hand another Super Bowl win and ring to a nemeses of sorts for the 4 time MVP. It will be the 4th for Pats QB (and husband of a super model) Tom Brady or the 2nd for little brother Eli Manning. Either way a tough pill to swallow for a guy as competitive as big brother Peyton Manning regardless of his accomplishments in the NFL.
I hold Peyton is the highest esteem, but many use super bowl rings as a large indicator to how good a QB was historically. No matter what happens Super Bowl Sunday there will be one more notch in a belt not belonging to Peyton and to do it in Indy is a pound of salt in a wound that’s a missed 2011 season via 3 neck surgeries and the possibility of retirement.
So come Sunday I’m rooting for Peyton Manning despite knowing he’s in a no win situation.
