Peyton Manning faces an interesting prospect, and one not unlike the last Denver Broncos quarterback to play in the Super Bowl: If Manning's team beats the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, he could retire on top. Just as John Elway did.
Of course, it doesn't appear the 37-year-old wants to take the figurative ride off into the sunset; instead, Manning said Sunday that he "certainly" wants to return, no matter what happens at Super Bowl XLVIII. However, it is believed that Manning will make his decision based on a postseason medical exam of his surgically repaired neck. If it goes well, Manning likely will come back, possibly to chase another achievement: two straight titles.
What do you think? Should he step away if Denver wins?
