Packers React to Peyton Manning’s Retirment

One last Manningface

We reacted to Peyton Manning’s retirement yesterday with a whole lot of Manningface.

Manning officially called it career on Monday, when he gave his farewell press conference in Denver. Manning played the Green Bay Packers four times in his 18 NFL seasons. He won two and lost two, throwing for a combined 1,256 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions.

Although Manning wasn’t a regular opponent, many current and former Packers reacted to Manning’s departure from the game on Monday. Here are some of those reactions.

Notice he didn’t say “greatest.”

And with that, Jayrone Elliott wins the day!

    If he could just play against the Pack defense, he may stick around…well rested and coming off a bye and the old fucker picked us apart. Ted sucks….cause he’s good at it

    Maybe it’s just me, but does it seem like Monty and other Packers fans are jealous of what Manning has accomplished? Statistically, nobody touches Manning. He owns every record there is to own. He totaled 5 MVP’s. He played in four SB’s and won two of them.

    I think there is hate going towards Manning because his brother Eli took part in ending the 15-1 Packers season. I also think that the majority of this hate comes from the fact that Peyton Manning was a better QB than Favre, Rodgers, and even Starr.

    Sure, Starr won as many SB’s and more championships in total (with some of the most stacked teams in football history), but he isn’t even close to Manning when it comes to stats/MVP’s.

    Taking wins, championships, stats, and awards into consideration, Peyton Manning is better than every Packers QB ever. To me, I feel like Monty and Packers fans know this and that is why so much hate comes down on Manning.

    But what do I know, I’m just a Detroit Lions fan……..

    Actually, always been a Manning fan, and never really got the hate. I think it’s just because he’s always been good, so people are gonna hate. Just the way it is.

    That being said, Manning is a top 10 QB, but not a top 5. Not in my book. He has amazing regular season stats in an era when teams throw the ball a lot, and he played most his career in a dome with a flag football type offense. Probably the number one thing I’ll remember about Manning is that he is definitely the greatest QB I’ve ever seen who threw the WORST football. No other HOF threw as many ducks as Peyton Manning. That is one reason why he struggled in the postseason and outside.
