Peyton Manning after 18 years in the NFL, retires

 

Denver Broncos

Denver BroncosDenver, CO – On Monday, March 7th, 2016, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning announces his retirement during a press conference at the UCHealth Training Center. Manning talked about his retirement during the press conference.

“In my very first NFL game, I completed my first pass to Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. I threw a touchdown in that same game to Marvin Harrison, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this August. The quarterback for our opponent, the Miami Dolphins, was, after my dad, my favorite player – Hall of Famer Dan Marino – who on the first third down of the game completed a 25-yard skinny post and it was the damndest throw I’d ever seen. Later, I completed a pass to tight end Marcus Pollard down the middle and somebody hit me really hard and after I got up I told myself, ‘I know I can play in this league.’

I have to admit it, today was awful. It was absolutely awful. Even if you don’t follow football, or think that “it’s just a ballgame”, today was still awful. My favorite player on my favorite team is no longer with them. Deuce McAllister is no longer a New Orleans Saint. «Read the rest of this article»
