Football News

Ever since the Denver Broncos booked thier place in Super Bowl 50 this past Sunday, much of the talk has revolved around whether the February 7 game is to be their quarterback's final game in the NFL.

Peyton Manning himself has kept tight lipped on his future beyond the next game this season, but there is a growing feeling that the future Hall of Famer will call time on his career regardless of the outcome versus the Carolina Panthers.

Candid conversation

Well now, thanks to the keen eared people at NFL Total Access, we might now have some insight into Manning's own mind. That's after microphones picked up what he had to say to New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick when they met at the halfway line in the aftermath of the AFC Championship game.

"Hey listen...This may be my last rodeo, so, it sure has been a pleasure," were the words uttered by the veteran QB in what was clearly meant to be a private conversation.

Despite the audio capturing his words, Manning is unlikely to publicly admit that the Super Bowl is likely to be his last game.

It does, though, sounds like he is leaning towards walking away from the game once the 2015 season finale comes to an end.

Last rodeo?

Whether his "last rodeo" will end in victory is another question, however.

Manning and the Broncos will have to nagivatage an ominous Carolina Panthers defense - not to mention the league's most impressive offense - if he is to add to his solitary Super Bowl ring in two weeks time.
