    Peyton Manning would do the Broncos a favor by retiring.

    Let's not understate how completely mediocre Manning was today.

    Denver would've won that game with any quarterback in the NFL under center.

    Steelers should trade for him.

    He threw for two touchdowns, ran for a first down and played a generally error-free game in the face of a fierce pass rush and with virtually no running game behind him.

    I think he did pretty well.

    Anybody trying to discount Peyton Manning's role in this game is silly and frankly just can't give a guy credit.

    He wasn't great, but he made a lot of plays and he kept his defense out of bad spots because he did't throw interceptions or force anything.

    He managed a playoff game well and he made less mistakes than Brady.

    That's probably the formula for QBS like winning like 90 percent of playoff games even though we melt every argument about quarterbacks greatness down to "HOW MANY SUPER BOWLS"

    And his balls were the proper pressure.

    He was Alex Smith with a worse completion percentage.

    Good for him, but this isn't even close to a "Neener, neener, I still got it" moment.

    Creosote, people are looking at zag and thinking "damn he makes more sense than Creosote."

    Fine. Congrats on managing the game and not shitting down your leg, Peyton.
