Peyton Manning named AFC Player of the Month

New, comments

Breaking news today, the sky is blue, water is wet, and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been named the AFC's Player of the Month.

Was this prestigious award ever really up for grabs for anybody not named Peyton Manning? In what has to be the least shocking news of this young decade, Peyton Manning has won the offensive player of the month award for the 7th time (yet another record he has broken).

The real question for Peyton Manning isn't if he'll win a record breaking 5 MVP awards (he will), or whether or not he will win the super bowl this year (again, he will). The real question is whether or not he will win the next 3 Super Bowls and be accepted as the all time greatest quarterback in NFL history (it looks that way)!

Look out Drew Brees, your passing title is in danger.
Look out Tom Brady, your TD record is going down just like your reputation.
Look out Dan Marino, your all time mark is going down this week!
Look out Brett Favre, because your all time yardage mark is going down in a few more years!

All in all, it's a great day for the Broncos and a great day for Manning.

There are no overreactions when it comes to Manning, only facts that haven't been laid out before our eyes yet!

Here's to you Peyton, and here's to the 2013 Denver Broncos! You guys are on a historic run and I know for a fact that Manning will be the first person to say that he couldn't do it without his team!

GO BRONCOS!!!!
