If it was up to me, I would just leave this page blank. Peyton Manning has one of the best resumes of any player to step on to a football field and is one of the greatest players of all time.

Manning recently plays for the Denver Broncos after spending most of his career with the Indianapolis Colts. Manning’s health was questioned after he missed the entire NFL season in 2011, which opened the door for his release and being signed afterwards by the Broncos.

Manning’s 2012 season was one of the best of his career, as he made a star out of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. In 2013 Manning will have a viable weapon from the slot in Wes Welker, who’s pairing with Thomas and Eric Decker could be deadly for opposing defenses in 2013.
