The score was relatively close up until the end of the 3rd quarter. It could have been anybody’s game. This is where the separation comes in. Who wants the win more? Apparently, the Denver Broncos did. Peyton Manning with the help of his colleagues took the Championship. Now, will Manning take his final bow after such a glorious season?
The atmosphere was abuzz with the anticipation of a smackdown of a game between the Panthers and the Broncos. There was also the question of Peyton Manning’s retirement hanging from everyone’s lips. Who remains standing at the end of this game will perhaps predict if Manning will hang up his cleats or not.
Capitalizing on Cam Newton’s mistakes, Manning and team breezed passed with the win. The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the Lombardi Trophy to the Broncos, but no real word on Manning’s status. “If this is his last rodeo it’s been a great ride,” Goodell said according to Mike Klis, 9News Reporter. “We thank him for that. It’s been extraordinary performances. What a man. I think he should go out on his own terms. That’s his decision.”
Peyton Manning did not make viewers anymore settled with his response to the Sportcaster’s questioning while accepting the Lombardi Trophy. It seems as if Manning may be leaning towards staying in the league. It is unclear. But after the President of the United States congratulates you in an official tweet, it would make you think that there could be more.
Perhaps, Manning could be questioning himself. If he retires now, what if there are more glory days still left in him? This could be the male psyche playing with his emotions, but whatever it may be that could be keeping him from being forthcoming about his plans has to be something really good.
Well, after the last note of the Star Bangled Banner was sung, the halftime festivities silenced and the last piece of confetti has been swept from the field, we are still waiting to hear Peyton Manning’s final decision. It would be great to see a continuation of the 2015-2016 season, but if it must be the end it was great ending to successful season and career. Best wishes to him and his team members.
