It’s been all Peyton all the time here in Indianapolis. Everyone has an opinion and has probably given it, multiple times (like me). Thankfully, there’s a lot of good things to say about this shoe-in candidate to the NFL Hall of Fame. (Can you say “best quarterback ever”?)
In all that I’ve read, which is only a fraction of what has been written, this quote from Indy Star reporter Mike Chappell is the best. These are words to live by for every athlete, if not every person.
“It’s easy, enjoyable and ego-inflating to face everyone in victory. It’s a different beast to stand tall and face your critics on your worst day.”
According to Chappell in this Indy Star article (hopefully it’s still live), Peyton always did this.
On a lighter note, here’s a funny Onion article about Peyton. Ironically, there’s a tie-in with Mike Chappell, if you make to the end.
