We spent last night in Chicago, checking out the preseason debut of new Broncos QB Peyton Manning. The ex-Colts star played just 12 snaps, but to him, it meant so much more.
Manning was serious last night, in game mode. Right up until he stopped his interview to show his appreciation. He missed an entire season, underwent several neck surgeries, changed teams… and has emerged. And he wanted to thank the people who made it happen.
Manning led his team on a 50-yard drive yesterday before throwing an interception. He also converted a third-and-17. But we’ll have plenty of time to discuss all the football things. Last night at Soldier Field wasn’t about that. Last night was about Manning’s trek back.
