My first three years at Tennessee was Peyton Manning’s last. I was a year behind him. I met him once while I worked in the grocery store in my dorm.
In the three years that we were both at Tennessee Peyton never led the Vols to a National Title, a win over Florida, or claiming the Heisman Trophy.
When he got to the pros not much changed. He couldn’t beat this team or win that game.
Now, it appears that he has figured it out. He’s got his Super Bowl ring and he got while throwing nearly 10 INT’s during 4 playoff games. But he led the team and the team won.
So congrats Peyton. You won’t turn out to be like Dan Marino after all.
