He may not have looked like it in what may be his final season, but Peyton Manning will go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. At Super Bowl 50, he became the first quarterback to win 200 games as a starter and won his second Lombardi Trophy.
Manning has not indicated on if he will play in the 2016 season, but all signs point to him calling it quits. His former coach at Tennessee, Philip Fulmer, talked about how Manning is going to go down as one of the greatest of all time, if not the greatest with FOX Sports on Tuesday.
“This is certainly arguable, but in my mind, and in my very biased opinion, he’s the best that’s played the position in the game,” Fulmer said. “He’s done it in a lot of different ways. When he had a running game and when he didn’t. When he had a defense and when he didn’t. When he was on a great team and when he wasn’t.”
Until the 2015 season, Manning hadn’t played back up since his freshman year at Tennessee. If there’s anyone who knows about Manning being great, it’s certainly Fulmer.
