A Hall of Fame quarterback who had a vital second act with the Broncos would not like to see another Hall of Fame quarterback to do likewise.
Peyton Manning disclosed to TMZ.com that he trusts the Packers and Aaron Rodgers can resolve their differences.
“When I think of Aaron, I think of him as a Green Bay Packer,” Manning said. “Hopefully they can get it worked out.”
Numerous individuals, 10 years prior, would have said exactly the same thing regarding Manning and the Colts. For Manning’s situation, nonetheless, it was the team that pulled the plug, put together both with respect to worries about a serious neck issue and the way that the 2011 season had gone so ineffectively without Peyton that the Colts procured the option to draft Andrew Luck.
Manning isn’t the first all-time incredible who changed teams to root for another unequaled extraordinary to not change teams. A year ago, Joe Montana, who left the 49ers for the Chiefs, openly encouraged Tom Brady to wait with the Patriots.
Manning didn’t go quite that far with Rodgers, who has been connected most unmistakably with the Broncos.
“Aaron doesn’t need advice from me,” Manning said. “He’ll make a good decision. . . . . I think every player, their goal is to stay in one team the entire time if they can. Obviously, Tom made a move.”
Thus did Peyton. Thus did Montana. From the second the Packers exchanged up to choose quarterback Jordan Love 13 months prior, it appeared to be inescapable that, in the end, so will Rodgers.
