There are other players who were more talented, but there is no one who could out-prepare me.Peyton Manning
I've been a Colt for almost all of my adult life, but I guess in life, and in sports, we all know nothing lasts forever. Times change, circumstances change, and that's the reality of playing in the NFL.Indianapolis ColtsPeyton Manning

I'm not 23 anymore. But the defensive ends and linebackers chasing me are. If I had to choose between youth and experience, I'd take experience every time.Peyton Manning
I think I could describe the perfect quarterback. Take a little piece of everybody. Take John Elway's arm, Dan Marino's release, maybe Troy Aikman's drop-back, Brett Favre's scrambling ability, Joe Montana's two-minute poise, and, naturally, my speed.Peyton Manning
Santa: "You're interviewing to become Santa Claus."
Manning: "Yes, I can't wait to rub this in Brady's face."
I was never on a mission to be an NFL quarterback. I wanted to be a good high school player, and I worked hard at that. That made me good enough to play in college and then I wanted to be a good college quarterback. During college, I played well enough to make it into the NFL. I never took it for granted and really wanted to play hard at each level and I have always had a lot of fun doing what I wanted to do.Peyton Manning
