Broncos' Manning says Super Bowl might be his 'last rodeo'

The rivalry of Manning vs. Brady is obviously and understandably the one that will be remembered, but the rivalry between Belichick and Manning had much more of an impact on the actual game on the field, as they were trying to outsmart each other.

He responded, "You said two seconds?"

Belichick may have the reputation of an old grump and is known to get surly with officiating, but he knows how to lose, when he actually does.

On the latest episode of Bill Rhoden On Sports, Bill and I wrap up the NFC and AFC Championship games, talk about Cam Newton's triumphant season and discuss the changing of the guard at quarterback, as it relates to Manning and Newton, but also the position in general.

The Broncos and Panthers square off on February 7, Super Bowl Sunday, with Manning seeking his second title.

Peyton Manning has reached the top of the mountain again in what many predict will be his swan song.

"It's a great honor to be going back to the Super Bowl, playing Super Bowl 50", Manning said, according to ABC News. Head coach Bruce Arians put it this way: "We didn't play well enough [and] our best players especially didn't play well enough". Still, chances are that Sunday was the last time he and Belichick will face off for a shot in the Super Bowl - at least with Manning as quarterback. Overall, the bad far outweighed the good, including one game with a passer rating of 0.0, 17 interceptions to only nine touchdown passes in the regular season, being sidelined for six weeks with a series of injuries, getting relegated to backup duty in the National Football League for the first time, and vehemently denying a report linking Manning's wife to the banned drug HGH.

"I didn't have that thought", Manning said.

"One of the things Coach Ditka emphasized to us was to enjoy the moment", said Rivera Monday to ESPN.

After Super Bowl 50, Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak will be the first person to make the Super Bowl as both a player and head coach from the same team.

With four players in the Super Bowl, only Ohio State (5) has more than Tennessee.

The NFL said it's conducting a comprehensive review of the HGH allegations, a probe that's not expected to be complete until after the Super Bowl.

Manning is under contract for 2016, with a salary-cap charge of $21.5m, which is bigger than his cap figure last season when the Broncos asked Manning to take a cut.
