John Fox says it is ludicrous to question Manning’s legacy

Before Super Bowl XLVIII, many said that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning needed this win to cement his legacy. Aside from the Super Bowl he has already won and the record books he has rewritten, still some felt this Super Bowl win was needed. Denver head coach John Fox dismissed that idea.

“I’d say, . . . I can’t really say it out loud, right here,” Fox said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’d get in trouble.

“Ludicrous would be proper English.”

Before the Super Bowl Manning joked about the talk of his legacy.

“I’ve been being asked about my legacy since I was about 25 years old. I’m not sure you can have a legacy when you’re 25 years old, or even 37. I thought you had to be like 70 to have a legacy,” Manning said. “I’m not 100 percent sure what the word even means.

“I’m still in the middle of my career. Let me rephrase that: I’m down the home stretch of my career, but I’m still in it. It’s not over yet. It’s still playing out. This has been the second chapter of my career, and it’s an exciting chapter, and I’m certainly excited to be back in the Super Bowl on behalf of the Denver Broncos.”

    First off, I like J.Fox… that being said, I thought a few very poor decisions cost the Bronco’s any chance of getting back in the game… Gotta take the FG late in the second qtr… get something on the board… Kick off and try to stop Seattle
    late and maybe even get one more shot real late for another FG.. who knows?
    Get a little momentum and have the team not be shut out at half..
    Then the onside kick in the third… way too early for that when Seattle was expecting it… It all may have been for naught, but, If they could have gotten it down to 20 pts in the 4th with Manning… who knows…
