It was a historic weekend for Peyton Manning. First he became the NFL’s all-time leading passer in yardage; then he became the NFL’s first all-time leading passer to get benched for throwing four interceptions. It’s now come out that Manning’s terrible performance was at least partly to blame (likely a very small part given how his year had been going) on a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, as well as rib and shoulder injuries.
Manning will miss at least this week’s start against Chicago, but these injuries shouldn’t keep him sidelined all year. The real nagging pain that could keep him out of games would be a few good performances from backup Brock Osweiler. The Denver Broncos look to have a defense capable of winning a Super Bowl, but they’ll need more production out of their offense than what they’ve gotten from the 39-year-old Manning. This injury could just be the excuse for Gary Kubiak to make the change at quarterback he’d been waiting to execute.
Still, Osweiler is far, far from a proven commodity; it’s likely he could come in and do a poor job as well. So put the Peyton Manning obituaries on hold for now: the door has not closed on his career just yet.
In fact, we’ve compiled odds exactly how Manning’s career might play out moving forward. (Who needs a fortune teller when you have numbers?)
