Denver Broncos star Peyton Manning has told how he is aiming for NFL glory this year, despite having amassed an unfortunate record in his previous encounters with the playoffs.
Although it’s far to say Manning will go down as one of the greatest players to have graced the sport when he eventually calls time on his career, one of the only blemishes on his NFL resume could be the fact that more often than not when his team makes it to the playoffs- they fail.
In fact the Broncos quarterback’s record stands at 9-11 in the post-season, a stat that doesn’t make for pleasant reading if you’re a fan of the franchise currently gearing up for their playoff clash with the San Diego Chargers.
Naturally Manning has moved to refute suggestions that his record could stand in the way of the Bronco’s endeavours this time around, but was particularly vehement in his denial of the notion that it would mean they are destined to lose the playoffs.
“"I know it's easy to summarize – to take a whole bunch of football seasons and lump them together. I don't personally believe in that theory," Manning said.
"I think each season takes on its own identity and different things occurred along the way at different points in my career. In anybody's career. This is the 2013 season, and it's its own chapter. We're looking forward to writing it for a number of more weeks."
