4 Reasons Why Peyton Manning Needs to Retire

8 Mar

As we all know Peyton Manning was released from the Indianapolis Colts (holy crap, I spelled Indianapolis right the first time) in a super emotional press release yesterday. Yeah I cried, so what? You can’t help but like Peyton Manning, he’s a cool dude, and I feel bad for his situation. I did not like to hear, however, him say that he wasn’t sure who he would play for next. Pump the brakes. What? Why would you play again Peyton!?! Why! Well, in case he seems to need my advice, here are the four reasons Peyton Manning should stop playing football. I don’t even need five, these four are that good.

1. He has several neck injuries
This really drives me bonkers with athletes. How many concussions, breaks and tears do they have to have before they quit!? Here he is with 10 years of professional football under his belt, along with several issues with his neck. His neck. When that gets messed up it can lead to serious, serious problems. Like paralysis. And death! Why would you ever feel the need to get back on a field and risk another injury Peyton!? It could be your last!

2. He will never regain the respect he had in Indianapolis
Peyton Manning is loved by everyone because he was such a remarkably strong talent that stuck by his team. Think about Brett Favre: he left his loyalties, retired, then unretired and stunk up his last few seasons. He retired again with a more tarnished reputation than he had before. Why not step back and retire with dignity? Injuries don’t improve your abilities, they only hurt them. The minute Peyton goes to a new team and messes up he will have new haters that didn’t exist before. What can I say? Us sports fans are pretty fickle.

3. He’s already a television personality
I was in love with Eli and Peyton’s Oreo commercials. And his appearance on SNL was awesome. Peyton has an insanely likable personality, and he would make an amazing sports caster. Get dressed in a nice suit and criticize your old competition? What’s better than that!? Nothing.

4. He’s also already a millionare!
So obviously he doesn’t really need to be doing extra work. I mean, come on, how much do you have to put yourself through for extra money? It’s not like he won’t have sponsorships for every brand imaginable coming  his way all the time anyway. Just seems silly to put yourself through a ton of pain when there’s easier ways to earn a buck, Peyton!
