Early on in the season, people stumped for Peyton Manning as this season’s MVP when his absence exposed the dire situation the entire Indianapolis Colts organization is in without him at the helm.
The Colts look like they have nearly locked up the No. 1 overall choice in next season’s draft as they march toward a season of perfect imperfection.
With Peyton’s career and status as the future quarterback for the Colts completely up in the air, it appears as if Peyton may be finding a new home next season to continue his illustrious career.
Here are some career numbers for one of the best to ever play the quarterback position: Over 208 games he has 54,828 yards in his career. He has passed for 399 touchdowns to only 198 interceptions. He has the best all-time quarterback rating for an entire season in 2004 (121.1).
His lifetime passer rating is a stellar 94.9. In his career, he has four perfect (passer rating) games, one of those in the playoffs (highest of any quarterback ever). Before his injury, he had set the record for most consecutive games to start a career (208).
He is head and shoulders above all other active quarterbacks with 35 fourth quarter comebacks and 46 game-winning drives. When it comes to clutch, he is arguably the best all time.
Even from the sidelines, Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks on the field.
