Peyton Manning Signing Good For Him, Colts

July 30th 2011 22:05
Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts agreed on a five-year $90 million pact Saturday.

It's one of those situations where it's good for both him and the team.

The quarterback is one of the game's all-time greats, having led the Colts to a Super Bowl title and many playoff appearances.

His career stats are nothing short of incredible, as he has completed nearly 65% of his passes for over 54,000 yards with 399 touchdown passes to just 198 interceptions.

As great as those stats are, Manning Is truly one of the most terrific people and athletes in any sport.

Imagine that a man who plays for small-market Indianapolis Is one of the faces of the league.

Manning has always gotten it right, for as good as he is he has never been one to brag about his accomplishments.

Just the opposite, Manning is able to laugh at himself even doing side splitting comedic skits on Saturday Night Live over the years.

One unforgettable spot had him being mean to kids, and another had him dancing in the locker room with the coach.

Peyton Manning gets it.

And the Colts are fortunate to have him behind center.

Small-market doesn't really matter with a salary cap, and especially not with the new cap floor. But yeah, it's pretty obvious that the Colts and Manning were meant to be together. I mean, what other team can anybody envision him playing with? That SNL skit was a classic, I'm glad you brought it up.
