Whether you're a football fan or not you have to admire Peyton Manning's record-setting setting career in the NFL. Last night, Manning, quarterback of the Denver Broncos, threw 4 touchdown passes for a new career total of 510 in a 42-17 win against the San Francisco 49ers. The old record was 508 career touchdown passes by the Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre.
Manning spent most of his career with the Indianapolis Colts but was counted out after injuries. He has had four neck surgeries--the last a spinal fusion procedure.
His career has been renewed during the last 3 years with the Broncos. Manning is a consummate professional who makes the players around him better. There's never been even a whiff of scandal about him and every interview reinforces the image that, while he's a sports superstar, he'd be a fun guy to have a beer with.
Good guys win on a variety of levels.
