No one can argue with the fact that Peyton Manning is just simply the best quarterback in the NFL right now.
The Colts are not known for making wise draft choices, but on that faithful 1998 draft day, the Colts made an exceptional move to take Peyton instead of Leaf.
Manning holds NFL records for consecutive seasons with over 4,000 yards passing and the most total seasons with 4,000 or more yards passing in a career.
He is the all-time Colts franchise leader in career wins, career passing yards, pass attempts, pass completions, and passing touchdowns.
Since the Colts drafted Manning in 1998, the team has the highest conversion rate on third down (44.6 percent) and fourth down (61.1 percent) plays in the NFL.
While leading the Colts to their Super Bowl XLI victory in 2007, Manning helped the team to an NFL record by converting 56.1 percent of its third downs.
Peyton Manning is generally called the ideal example of the perfect quarterback. At only 34 years old, we can watch Peyton Manning win at least four more rings, if not more.
