No one can deny that Peyton Manning is a class act, and no one was surprised when he deflected questions Sunday after Super Bowl 50 about his future. He gave every unspecific indication that this was his "last rodeo," but he wasn't about to make the Denver Broncos' victory all about himself.
There will be plenty of time for that. He can go back to Denver for the parade and then decide on the appropriate timing for his official retirement announcement.
Perhaps it's remotely possible that he decides to play another season. He said during a postgame interview that he did not want to make an emotional decision, but he and everybody else know it's time for him to ride off...
Even when he has a... not awful game, this expression is permanently frozen on Jake Delhomme's face. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)
