Being the quarterback of a Super Bowl champion is a crown like no other in sports. It can define their entire career, and elevate their status in the history of football for generations to come.
Peyton Manning's record-setting season earned him The Associated Press NFL MVP award in a landslide. No other player has won more than three. Manning also took the AP's Offensive Player of the Year award for the second time.
The talk, at least before the Denver Broncos took a team vote and decided not to show up for the game, was that Peyton Manning might call it a career and ride off into the sunset after winning his second Super Bowl ring.
Make it 48 Super Bowls in a row for Donald Crisman, Larry Jacobson and Tom Henschel.
Peyton Manning, unstoppable.
Only one of them can be the greatest.
The Super Bowl practically comes with a guarantee of A-list star wattage: No matter where it's held, celebrities flock to the big game and the blowout extravaganzas connected to it.
Brady is 10-4 against Manning in his career, 2-1 in the playoffs. Manning has a losing career playoff record of 10-11, with one Super Bowl and one loss.
Playoff losing streaks by NFL quarterbacks since 1950, according to STATS:
LeBron James was announced Thursday as The Associated Press' 2013 Male Athlete of the Year, becoming the third basketball player to capture the award that has been annually awarded since 1931. James received 31 of 96 votes cast in a poll of news organizations, beating Peyton Manning (20) and Jimmie Johnson (7).
On Monday, Dwight Clark will make a point to walk to the spot of his famous game-winning touchdown known only as "The Catch" for probably the final time.
When the Broncos meet the Chiefs on Sunday, it will be a once-in-a-generation sort of matchup.
After three punts to start things off, Manning threw a record-tying seven touchdown passes, something no one had done in 44 years.
"Bittersweet is probably the best way to put it because there are a lot of great memories that took place there," Montana said. "But everyone will admit that it's not the ultimate in a field you would want to be known for."
Montana said bullying was common in the NFL, and said the locker room is a "fun, crazy place," but added, "It's a tough place, too, sometimes."
