Fans of the NFL are certainly well aware of who Peyton Manning is as undoubtedly one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He played 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and four with the Denver Broncos. His playing days are over, but he still watches the game.
Manning certainly has a huge weekend ahead of him as he will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for all his contributions to the sport. While speaking to Complex ahead of his Hall Of Fame induction, Peyton Manning was asked what he thought of the current quarterbacks in the NFL. Manning stated that the current crop of quarterbacks is definitely in good shape.
Yeah. Look, I think the NFL is in good shape at the quarterback position. I mean, you certainly have the old guard, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers are better still doing their thing, which is so impressive. But Justin Herbert is a guy that jumps out as far as a new guy, that I’m excited to watch him play this year. I know for Broncos fans, that’s going to be a challenge having to face him twice a year along with Mahomes. The AFC West is a tough division now, especially facing those quarterbacks. But, Justin’s a guy that I’ve known since he was in college. He came down to our football camp. He stayed for a senior year, which was admirable. It doesn’t happen much these days. A lot of pressure and expectations on him going to the chargers. It’s still early, but to me, he’s off to a good start. Then, I think watching Matthew Stafford in his transition to the Rams, new chapter for him. The challenges that come with that expectations. But I can just tell by reading his interviews, he’s excited, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter.
There is no doubt that Peyton Manning more than deserves to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame and it will be a joyous occasion for fans and his peers alike.
