Peyton's Burden

Courtesy of www.zimbio.comPeyton Manning had a great 2013-14 regular season and broke all kinds of passing records in the process.

The 37 year old threw more touchdowns and passing yards than any quarterback in NFL history, and also led Denver to the most points ever.

Manning will certainly be this season’s NFL MVP, which would be the fifth of his career but it’s the post-season which has many Denver Bronco fan’s worried.

In 21 career playoff contests, Manning’s teams are 10-11. He’s thrown 34 touchdowns to 22 interceptions and is currently tied with Brett Favre for most playoff losses by a quarterback in NFL history.

Given his record-breaking season and the end of his career is near, one could argue that there’s nobody in the playoffs with more pressure on their shoulders than Manning.

We all know the playoff history involving New England Patriots QB, Tom Brady and Manning so I am not going to bore you with the details; but the number that stands out is that Brady has 3 Super Bowl rings to Manning’s 1.

The truth of the matter is that Brady could actually have an average game and the Pat’s strong running game could provide the type of ball control offense that it would take to keep Manning off the field to secure a victory.

Many may argue that Manning isn’t to be blamed for all past playoff failures, but he was the face of the franchise in ‘NapTown’ and currently the face of the Broncos.

Manning will need some help from the Broncos defense and also their running game to take some of the pressure off of him because this is truly a burden that he can’t bear alone.

Herman, Was shocked at the result of the Super Bowl last night. Not by the Seahawks winning, but by how dominant they were! It appeared that Peyton was rattled from the opening snap and never quite recovered. I think that Seattle D line had a lot to do with that, no doubt! -Brett C.
