intends to return
for 18th season
ENGLEWOOD---NFL fans and fantasy football own-
ers debating Peyton Manning s prowess and prob-
lems can continue that discussion well into the new
The five-time MVP says he plans to return to the
Denver Broncos in 2015 for an 18th NFL season.
Manning was asked during his weekly news con-
ference last Wednesday if there were a set of circum-
stances that would lead him to retire after the upcom-
"I certainly plan on being back, if the Broncos will
have me. But at this point, I m kind of thinking about
A win over the Raiders (3-12) tomorrow would earn
the Broncos (11-4) a first-round bye.
Manning said he knows talk this time of year turns
to the coaching carousel and "I get to fall into that
category because maybe I m closer to the same age
as some of the coaches. I m enjoying playing and
looking forward to Sunday s game and the game to
Manning, 38, is trying to supplant his boss, Broncos
GM John Elway, as the oldest quarterback to win a
But first, he s trying to bounce back from a poor
performance in Denver s 37-28 loss Monday night at
Cincinnati, where he threw four interceptions for the
sixth time in his career.
Although the Broncos have down-shifted their
high-octane offense over the past several weeks to
work on a better ground game, Manning has thrown
just five TD passes to go with six interceptions in the
That s sparked a debate over whether time is finally
catching up to Manning despite his posting a 39-12
record following spinal fusion surgery in 2011.
With every interception, the debate grows in both
traditional and social media over his age, health and
even his credentials.
"Yeah, that s probably a little deeper than I can
handle," Manning said. "... But the ones the other
night were a combination of bad throws and bad
decisions. ... I take a lot of pride in trying to be an
accurate quarterback and trying to be disciplined in
my decision making. So, I didn t play up to my stan-
dards the other night and certainly on those four par-
ticular plays, I ve got to do a better job.
"I m not sure how old you are has (anything) to
do with it. You can be 22 and throw a ball behind
a guy, you re probably going to get intercepted."
Manning is in some ways a victim of his own great-
ness. In his first 43 regular-season games in a Broncos
uniform, Manning averaged 27 completions per game
for 318 yards. Over his past four, he s averaged 18
completions for 224 yards. His touchdown (TD) rate
has fallen from 2.68 per game to 1.25, and his inter-
ception rate has more than doubled from .69 to 1.5.
Coach John Fox issued an impassioned defense of
his quarterback this week, saying, "if you look at the
meaningful statistics as it relates to quarterback, I
think he s probably in the top five in the National
Football League, which we re pleased with."
Manning leads the NFL with 39 TD passes and his
102.9 passer rating and 4,454 yards passing both rank
Although his teammates fully expected it, Manning s
pronouncement Wednesday was met with glee.
"Eighteen s back, we re back!" running back C.J.
Anderson said. "Naw, I just think he s got a lot to
prove. I don t know if Peyton pays attention to that.
But I just know if someone s talking bad about me
almost every week, I would want to come back and
show you guys wrong."
Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said he anticipates
Manning playing beyond 2015.
"I expect him to play out his whole deal," Harris
said. "Even if we win the Super Bowl, I see Peyton
coming back still because we would pretty much have
