Super Bowl XLVIII: Loss in NFL's Biggest Game Doesn't Hurt Peyton Manning's Legacy

Now that was a lopsided game. Peyton Manning‘s Broncos could only manage eight points against Seattle‘s No. 1 defense. Despite a loss in Super Bowl XLVIII, Manning’s legacy will still be the same.

Sure, Manning now has a record of 1-2 in the NFL‘s biggest game, but he is still the best regular season quarterback of all time. He may not have as good of a playoff record as Tom Brady and he may not have as many wins in the Super Bowl as baby brother (Eli Manning), but he has still led three of his teams to the big game and he still has one Super Bowl victory.

Manning and the rest of the Denver Broncos just got done making history this season and their offense will go down as one of the best off all time. Heck, statistically it was the best. Manning has still won a bunch of games and has made the playoffs many times. He is 37 years old and he is the best quarterback in the league–just had his best season ever.

Not many players can say that.

It is disappointing that Manning has now lost two Super Bowls, but he lost both games to two very good and deserving teams.

Manning is still a legend on and off the field and he will still go down as one of the best QBs ever. It is kind of hard to argue that when you look at the numbers he has put up over the years.

Oh yeah, he did just win his fifth MVP award, which is the most ever by two.

It is really disappointing that Denver could not pull off the victory–for Broncos fans that is–and it is even more disappointing the way that they loss (43-8).

Still, a loss in the Super Bowl does not hurt Peyton Manning’s legacy in any way.
